After the acquisition of Beats Apple aggressively launched more and more models of new and updated Beats earphones and the powerbeats pro is one of them. Though everything is good Apple products are a little bit more costly than many others. This is my personal opinion because I am the kind of guy who always tries to get the maximum by spending the minimum amount of money.
These earbuds are bit expensive as per some people's opinion and that's not totally wrong but Apple users know very well that they pay for quality. They know very well why Apple products have such a premium price tag. Why do people always get ready to spend a few more bucks to get Apple products? Let's try to find out by testing and reviewing Beats Powerbeats Pro.
As per the name they are pro with design and build. Excellent connectivity and The best Battery life that made them really great. They are great and easy to use. Hands-free controls with Siri and voice assistants make your life easy. 8 Color options give you the freedom to choose your favorite color.
Once you pick them up from the case and keep them in-ear canals they never leave their position until you take them out. Thanks to ear hooks that go around your ears and give the perfect fit 10 out of 10 in the department of design and fitting. A great 9 hours of playtime in a single charge and fast fuel charging made the charging easy.
It's good but not the best and the reason is its sound performance. Bass is powerful as you see in almost all beats products but by boosting the bass they ignore mids and lows. Sound doesn't feel natural and neutral if you listen carefully.
I must tell you that it has very average noise isolation and this may seriously affect the overall sound performance. Great design, Best fit, Superb connectivity, and Amazing battery but the Sound is good not the best. I think Makers of Powerbeats Pro should think again about its price and reduce them if possible. overall good deal but not the best for $228 certainly few dollars can be cut.
How is the Design and Build Quality of Powerbeats Pro?
Apple acquired Beats and now we can't say that Beat and Apple are rivals but still I couldn't stop myself from the comparison between these 2. Especially if you compare the build and design I found Beats Powerbeats pro is far better than AirPods.
Though the bulky charging case is an issue of Powerbeats Pro overall design is quite impressive. Pro is specially designed for the movement of the user. Earhooks perfectly stay around the ear that is also adjustable according to your requirement. Powerbeats Pro comes with multiple ear tips so you can choose according to your convenience.
I got 4 pairs of ear tips. tips already attached with earphones can't give me that required a level of fitting so I tried with small-sized tips and those suited my ears perfectly. I shook my head fast, Jumped, ran and walked but they didn't leave its position and stayed perfect in-ear. Powerbeats pro is sweat and water-resistant that makes your Gymming and workout quite enjoyable.
Weight greatly affects comfort and heavy earbuds are like punishment. Powerbeats Pro is lightweight and does not give you any burden no matter how long you use. Designed and built for all-day comfortable use. It costs 250$ and when I heard the price I thought it was overpriced but when I saw and tested them I was not surprised why they are a little bit expensive.
Yes, they are worth it if you ask me about its design. But I feel the charging case is slightly bulky and sometimes doesn't fit perfectly in the pocket. But I don't think it's a big deal. If you ask me how much I will rate them I will say they deserve 9 out of 10. Very well done!
How is the Sound Performance of Powerbeats Pro?
Beats headphones mean heavy and powerful bass but are these enough for the best audio experience? well, the answer completely depends on the user's choice. Of course, heavy workout lovers would like heavy bass but everyone will not. Powerbeats Pro tried to deliver the best possible combination of powerful bass and balanced mid and lows but they actually couldn't.
If you talk about the replacement of AirPods with the Powerbeats Pro in my opinion it would not be completely right. Airpods are made for a natural and balanced sound. They don't inspire you to a workout rather than give you a neutral and natural sound but they can't give the heavy bass and energetic highs like powerbeats Pro.
While talking about sound my suggestion would be, make sure for what purpose you are ordering them. If you expect neutral sound Airpods are better than Pro but if you want to boost yourself for a heavy workout or want to charge yourself for work then nothing is better than powerbeats pro.
But again if you ask me that should you buy powerbeats pro for completely natural and neutral sound I would not say yes. But definitely yes for heavy workouts.
How is the Connectivity of Powerbeats Pro?
Here Apple comes into the picture. In the department of connectivity, I think very few rivals can compete with Apple technology. Here in the Powerbeats, you will get the same top-class performance with an H1 chip and class 1 Bluetooth.
It is obvious that if your headphone has strong connectivity with your device you will face fewer dropouts. I enjoyed picking up calls and listening to music with the Powerbeats Pro even in a crowded place. I didn't face any problems. You can also share audio with other beats and apple headphones that is an added benefit. But if you ask me about noise isolation I am not that much impressed with it.
How is the Charging and Battery performance of Powerbeats Pro?
If someone says give me 2 reasons to buy Powerbeats Pro I would say great battery and great design. As I said many times, the Apple H1 chip changed the story completely. Nobody can deny that Apple gives the best charging features in almost all headphones. Fast fuel charging that gives 1.5 hours of playback time with just 5 minutes of charging, Charging case, and lightning connector that made the task so easy. I didn't use them for non-stop 9 hours but I didn't face any issue for up to 7 hours of non-stop use. The charging case extends that listening time for more than 24 hours. In a few words, I would say they gave what they claimed.

Airpods vs powerbeats Pro: Apple needs to eliminate its design drawbacks if they want to dominate beats pro. Powerbeats pro easily beats in the design department. in the connectivity and battery department the match tie. Sound is the department where apple Is the winner in my opinion but again it's my personal opinion. For the workout lovers, I suggest you powerbeats pro which is far better than AirPods.
