When you think of buying a good earphone, you’re probably looking for something that has great sound, good battery life and reliable connectivity among other features. The Powerbeats Pro promises to deliver all of them while looking absolutely gorgeous.
What’s exceptional about the Powerbeats Pro is that it runs the Apple H1 chip giving you a faster and more stable wireless connection to your devices. Plus, you can say “Hey Siri” and get voice-activated assistance without having to reach for your iPhone.
The acoustic engineering on the Powerbeats Pro is completely enhanced to deliver an incredibly low distortion and a powerful acoustic response.
The earphones have also been designed to fit different ear sizes. The production team worked with over 20 configurations to ensure that the Powerbeats is an ergonomic fit. To achieve this purpose, the earphones come with 4 ear-tip sizes and an adjustable ear-hook.
The earphones are also lightweight in design and sweat and water-resistant so it never feels uncomfortable in your ears during long use.
The earphones offer powerful functionality with identical physical volume and track controls on each earbud. So whether you use your left hand or your right hand, you’ll be able to easily control your music or take calls.
The earbuds have special optical sensors that can automatically play or pause music or calls depending on whether the earphones are placed in the ears or removed from them.
The Powerbeats Pro has an incredible speech detecting accelerometer in each earbud that can filter out external sounds like wind and ambient noise. To microphones on the sides of the earbuds also ensures your calls can be heard clearly.
Each earbud promises to deliver up to 9 hours of listening time. If you use the Powerbeats Pro with its magnetic charging case, you can listen to music for more than 24 hours. With Fast Fuel technology, you can fast charge the earbuds for just 5 minutes to get up to 1.5 hours playback. With 15 minutes of charging, you could get up to 4.5 hours playback time.
No Need to Power Off
The Powerbeats Pro has no power button. The earphones power on when they are taken out of the case and power off and automatically charge when you place them back inside. The motion accelometers inside the earphones can detect when the earbuds are idle and not in use. They automatically switch to sleep mode when idle.
These earbuds use Class 1 Bluetooth technology to ensure exceptional extended range connectivity with fewer dropouts. Each earbud independently connects to your device so you can choose to use one earbud when you’re on a call or both, if you are at the gym, according to your preference.
Pairing the earbuds is done via the case itself. Once you open the lid for the first time, it enters into pairing mode. The earbuds are then automatically paired with any of your supported devices that are signed into your iCloud account.
