Powerbeats Pro - Review

The market for wireless products is growing, especially when it comes to earphones. Powerbeats pro earphones were released to the public on May 10th, 2019. The product is Apple’s first wireless earphones that are fitness-focused and durable, making it a great choice for any athlete.

It can be a little pricey, but the value you get is worth the cost. Let’s dive in and learn more about the Powerbeats Pro earphones and why it’s a great choice for you when you’re on the move.

Design and Display

The Powerbeats Pro is designed for ruggedness, durability, and strenuous activities, like running or working out. The secure-fit ear hooks are adjustable based on your needs, and they provide comfort for the entirety of its 9 hours of listening time.

The earphones are wireless, and they have a reinforced design to combat sweat, making them highly water-resistant and appealing for numerous athletes. The case is designed to be its charger, and each earpiece has a metal contact on the side, which serves as a magnet when you put it back in the case. The case has two small metal contacts that connect with the earphone’s magnets, making it very easy to charge.

They are compatible with Android and iOS devices, and the setup process is quite simple and easy. You can pair them with your devices by pressing the button on the inner part of the case, and a popup window will appear on your device. You can tap and hold the connect button, then tap done to enjoy the perks of these earphones.

Some devices may not need you to press or hold the button, and the popup window will appear instantly with the Bluetooth functionality. The perks of having them pair with your devices effortlessly are the H1 chips that are embedded in the earphones. The H1 chips are designed to give you minimal to no dropouts and extended range capabilities.

Another amazing perk is the ability to sync the Powerbeats Pro earphones to all of your devices instantly if you have an iCloud account. You can save a lot of time and effort this way because it will pair with your Mac laptop, Apple Watch, iPad, and even your iPod touch. You can un-pair them with any device by clicking on the inner button of the case with the earphones connected until the small light in the case flickers.

Each earpiece has control options and the main button with the logo that allows you to pause or play music. You can double-tap it if you want to skip a song or triple-tap it if you want the previous song. It can even connect you to Siri if you press and hold for a bit, making you hear Siri loud and clear.

You can also use them for phone calls, giving you high-quality sounds and an enhanced experience. The earbuds have optical sensors and motion accelerometers that detect when you put them on or take them off. They’re designed to automatically play when you put the earphones on or pause when you take them off.

I love the variety of colors and designs of this product that you get to choose from. You can have the standard black version, ivory, glacier blue, cloud pink, lava red, navy, spring yellow, or moss. It has multiple ear tip options that you can choose from depending on your preference and comfort level.


The Powerbeats Pro will give you high-quality sounds for your high-performance workout. Being water-resistant gives you extreme comfort and protects the earphones as well. I never feel pressured or scared that they will run out of power because the battery life has an amazing 9-hour window. Even if I forget to charge it, putting it in the case for 5 minutes will charge it for 1 hour and a half.

I quite enjoy the audio sharing feature, making me pair it with another pair of earphones, iPhone, headphones, or even AirPods. My workout buddy and I can enjoy awesome tunes or a podcast together while working out.

The H1 chip gives us extended range, allowing us to stay paired even if I’m lifting weights and my buddy is on the treadmill. No matter how hard I move, run, or lift, the earphones stay securely tight without falling off at all. They didn’t feel too tight at all, and they’re actually quite comfortable.

The voice control design is quite handy and convenient because I can say anything without reaching for my phone. I think the optical sensors that play or pause automatically are very convenient because I always hate it when I forget to pause my playlist if I take my earphones off.

Most alternatives gave room to background noises or muffled sounds while working out, but Powrbeats Pro earphone models always keep me immersed in what I’m listening to.

Final Verdict

I think these earphones are spectacular, and they live up to the hype. The Powerbeats Pro is quite expensive compared to the alternatives in the market, but the level of comfort and convenience makes up for the high price. I think it would have been more convenient if the case was pocket-friendly because it’s a little bit thick and can’t fit in most of my pockets.

The sound quality is high and appealing, and I love the battery life. The option of just charging it for 5 minutes for my work out session makes me feel comfortable and stress-free if I forget to charge it beforehand. It feels good on my ears, and I don’t feel any irritation or scratches when I’m running or lifting weights.

I like the connectivity options that are so easy to set up, and I enjoy using them for phone calls too. The voice recognition features are very handy as well, and it saves me so much time and effort. I think the only downside of these earphones is the high price, but I like to think of it as a high-quality investment.

I’ll give this product a solid 10/10, and I believe it’s one of the best earphones on the market. I highly recommended it to everyone, especially if you work out frequently.
