Powerbeats Pro Features

They were first discovered by 9to5Mac after the release of iOS 12.2. Hidden in iOS 12.2 were animations and images that showcased Powerbeats without any sort of connecting wire. In terms of design, they’re nearly identical to previous generation, but truly wireless much like AirPods. The earphones support “Hey, Siri”, just like the second-generation AirPods.

Like AirPods and Powerbeats3, the new Pro earphones pair instantly with iPhones and pairing syncs to iCloud-connected devices including iPad, Mac, and Apple Watch without pairing on each device (you can still pair manually with Android). It also has its own Lightning-powered charging case.

Read our review and watch our hands-on video walkthrough for more details.

Purchase Powerbeats Pro

They are available to purchase on Apple.com, in Apple Stores, Amazon, and other retailers for $249.95. They will be available in a total of 8 colors (4 new options launching June 9th). Check out our hands-on with the new 2020 colors. On June 9th, the new colors are Spring Yellow, Cloud Pink, Lava Red, and Glacier Blue. The new colors join Black, Ivory, Navy, and Moss versions, bringing the total color count to eight options.

PowerBeats (4th generation)

PowerBeats

The Powerbeats 4 features a slightly sleeker design, which should be more comfortable on the ear, and boast up to 15 hours of battery life.

As we expected prior to the launch, the new Powerbeats incorporates the Apple H1 chip with support for Hey Siri. The Beats logo doubles as a button that can be used to play, pause and advance through tracks similar to the double tab gesture on non-pro AirPods. The button can then be long-pressed to activate Siri.

Powerbeats now use the H1 chip that is also found in second-generation AirPods, Powerbeats Pro, and AirPods Pro, increasing battery life from 12 hours to 15 hours, while enabling ‘Hey Siri’ support. The new Powerbeats also work with Apple’s Audio Sharing feature.

The design is clearly inspired by Powerbeats Pro, using the more modern look with the main difference being the cable connecting each earbud. They are charged via a Lightning cable directly on the headphones.

Features

  • Replaces Powerbeats3 Wireless design with Powerbeats Pro redesign
  • 15 hour battery compared to 12 hour battery with Powerbeats3 Wireless
  • Priced at $149, $50 under $199 Powerbeats3 Wireless
  • Three colors at launch: Red, White, and Black

Purchase

They can be purchased from Apple, Amazon, or Best Buy.

Apple appears to be winding down sales of Powerbeats3, as stock starts to dwindle on Apple.com (some colors still available as of publishing). So if for some reason you want the outdated model, act quickly.

However, almost everyone should instead be looking forward to the new Powerbeats that were officially announced today, which come with more battery life and a cheaper starting price. Beats has set up a new page on its website that is dedicated to the Powerbeats range, which highlights all of the new features and compares to the more premium Powerbeats Pro models.

‘Powerbeats4’ wireless earphones from Beats have been popping up all over the internet and even in retail stores over the last few days. Today Apple’s Beats brand is making it official: the all-new Powerbeats wireless earphones are replacing Powerbeats3 Wireless for a fraction of the price.

The new Powerbeats earphones are heavily inspired by the totally wireless Powerbeats Pro earphones (reviewed). They also use the same chip as Apple’s second-gen AirPods and newly released AirPods Pro earphones.

Here’s what you need to know about the all-new Powerbeats wireless earphones now that they’re officially announced:

Filings for new Powerbeats headphones today hit the FCC, model number A2015, following 9to5Mac’s discovery of “Powerbeats4” in code references back in December. The new model is expected to feature ‘Hey Siri’ support and a H1 chip, like what we have seen in Powerbeats Pro and latest-generation AirPods.

This model has hit the FCC ahead of an official announcement from Apple or Beats. The filings include a drawing of the new earbuds, and they look very similar to existing Powerbeats.

I went into this review of the $249 Powerbeats Pro with high expectations. Even prior to reading Zac’s review, I was pretty much convinced that these would be the best wireless earbuds ever made, and, despite not beating the AirPods in every area, I wasn’t disappointed.

To be clear, the Powerbeats Pro aren’t perfect, but they’re better than the AirPods if you’re using them for workouts. The Apple AirPods set the groundwork for Beats’ first truly wire-free earbuds, and the team at Beats took the baton and ran with it.

Maybe it’s just the endorphins talking, but words like ‘epic’, ‘thunderous’, and ‘invincible’ come to mind when running with Powerbeats Pro. The first-ever totally wireless Beats earphones are a mega upgrade over Powerbeats3 Wireless, and not just because they pack the best features of second-gen AirPods in a versatile, sporty package.

Apple’s first real competitor to AirPods has finally arrived: Beats Powerbeats Pro. Apple has owned Beats since 2014, of course, which explains much of the magic behind the latest truly wireless earphones.

So what are Powerbeats Pro? A serious evolution of the wireless-but-with-a-cord version of Powerbeats earphones. Beats describes Powerbeats Pro as ‘totally wireless’, replacing the microUSB-charged corded hardware with a totally cordless version that has its own Lightning-powered charging case.

Powerbeats Pro also retains the connectivity and intelligence of Apple’s new AirPods thanks to the Apple-designed H1 chip inside, driving reliable wireless connectivity and even voice-activated “Hey Siri” control. There’s more to Powerbeats Pro too…

Without a doubt the biggest consumer-facing news from Apple’s September event yesterday was the removal of the iPhone’s headphone jack. This “courageous” move is seen to help push forward wireless audio technology, all the while giving Apple a few more millimeters to work with in the device’s internals.

Not without controversy, this decision does mean leaving a lot of wired headphones in the dust. Not everyone will find the AirPods, expected in October, the default choice and we figured this would be a good time as any to roundup the 9to5Mac team’s opinions on their current favorite pair (or 2) of wireless headphones. Take a look through and be sure to share your current favorite wireless audio options in the comments.

Earlier this week we noted that Apple has refreshed the Beats by Dre wireless Beats Powerbeats 2 earbuds with new colors aimed at Apple Watch Sport users. Today, Apple has updated its Beats headphones website to promote the new line of headphones along with a new price: $179, which is $20 less than the previous price at $199.

With its onboard storage for music and Bluetooth connection, Apple is promoting these headphones as a way to tap into listening to music with the Apple Watch without the need of a connected iPhone. Even with the ties to Apple and the new Apple Watch-centric marketing campaign, the new earphones will still work with other Bluetooth media players.

We noted earlier today on 9to5Toys that some retailers are offering as much as $50 off of the wireless headphones, and Amazon is selling the accessory at various discounted prices ranging from $169 to $189.

Apple quietly updated its Powerbeats2 headphones to match Apple Watch Sport colors this week signalling a new move to focus audio accessories to the Apple Watch ecosystem. The new colors, which match the Apple Watch Sport Band colors of Blue, Black, Green, Pink and (updated) White, are available in Apple Stores but haven’t arrived at other retail locations yet.

Powerbeats2-apple-store

The Apple Watch can store and play 2GB of music without a tethered iPhone wirelessly via Bluetooth 4 and with watchOS 2 will get access to many more audio applications. It wouldn’t be out of character for Apple to release over the ear Beats headphones in matching colors or even PowerBeats Wireless to match the more expensive stainless steel Apple Watch.

The new Powerbeats2 headphones will of course work with all Apple and other Bluetooth 4 devices even though they appear to be focused on the growing Apple Watch market.

Apple Powerbeats2 Wireless earphones still come in their original, dare I say, dated colors for $199 ($189 Amazon, $169 Best Buy or $160 Ebay) but the original White version has been moved from the old lineup the the new lineup. Original urBeats wired headphones can be found for as little as $45 via 9to5Toys.com

Up until now, Bluetooth wireless audio was purely optional for Apple’s devices: every iPad, iPhone, and iPod has shipped with a 3.5mm audio port to connect with wired earbuds and headphones. The Apple Watch is different: it’s Apple’s first fully wireless device, with no user-accessible ports to connect accessories, even though it can work as a standalone music player during workouts. The lack of a headphone port is actually a positive, since tethering your wrist to your head with a cable would look silly, and isn’t ergonomically ideal. Thankfully, Bluetooth headphones have come a long way over the past few years, shrinking from gangly and boxy earmuffs into earphones comfortable enough to exercise with.

Since one of the Apple Watch’s major selling points is fitness functionality, this quick guide to the best Apple Watch headphones and earphones focuses mostly on accessories that can work anywhere, rather than options you can’t wear while exercising. But I’ll include some larger options, too, just in case you’re picking a pair for non-athletic use, or to share with your iPad, iPhone, iPod, or Mac…
