Powerbeats Pro - Your Workout Buds from Beats
Are you someone who loves listening to music while working out, but worried that the headphones might get damaged in course of time due to sweat and the rigorous nature of your workout? Fret no more, the Powerbeats Pro from Beats are a boon to any music-loving athlete.
These Bluetooth headphones come with a comfortable and secure fit along with a long-lasting battery life. The Beats Powerbeats Pro are sport-focused wireless headphones that have been designed keeping runners and gym-goers in mind.
Design and Comfort
In sync with the design language of the Powerbeats lineup, the Powerbeats Pro comes with a around-the-ear hook design that offers stability during your workout sessions. These headphones are wireless, making them easy to use. These Bluetooth headphones come with a medium-sized set of silicone tips. You also get three additional options in small, medium and large sizes.
The Beats Pro wireless Bluetooth headphones come with identical controls on each earbud. The controls are very easy to find and can be operated by touch - very useful while you are listening to music and pumping iron at the same time. Once you feel the B logo on the earbuds, press once to pause or resume your music, twice to skip tracks and thrice to go back. A long-press on the logo activates Siri. You get volume controls on top of each earbud.
These wireless headphones from Beats produce a well-balanced audio. Every song played on these Bluetooth headphones sounds finely tuned and crystal-clear. Although a full fledged noise cancellation feature is not available with these headphones, they do offer noise isolation, which is useful for phone calls in noisy environments.
What Will You Miss When You Use These Headphones with an Android Device
Although designed for iOS devices (Apple being the parent company for Beats), the Powerbeats Pro headphones are also compatible with Android smartphones. However, while using these Beats Bluetooth headphones with an Android device, you do tend to miss out on a number of features that are enjoyed by iOS device users.
Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant is unavailable when you pair these headphones with an Android phone. The seamless switching between multiple devices such as an iPod, iPhone or Mac would be sorely missed when being paired with Android phones. Easy pairing and setup is another feature that would be missed by non-iOS users. Automatic ear detection, single-ear usage and Live Listen features are some of the other things that an Android user will miss out on while using these Bluetooth headphones.
Irrespective of whether you are an Android or an iOS device user, Powerbeats Pro are a great wire-free earbud option that can give many other Bluetooth earbuds a tough competition. So if you have the budget, are a fitness enthusiast, or you hit the gym more often than you hit the pub, and are looking for a pair of sweat-resistant earbuds that you can wear to the gym, on the jogging trail, or at work, these headphones are just for you.
