It had already appeared in the bowels of iOS 12.2; now, official: Beats has just released the Powerbeats Pro, totally new wireless headsets.
As speculated, the new product is very similar to AirPods in several respects: they share the same H1 chip, support the “Ea, Siri” feature and are completely wireless (now there's no more wire joining the left handset to the right). A big change, however, is the case that can recharge the headphones, which has a Lightning port to be recharged.
Powerbeats Pro have physical buttons for playback and volume control; on the other hand, there is no button to turn it on / off (just take them out of the case so that it is ready for use and put it back in sleep). The configuration, as expected, is exactly the same as for AirPods: just open the case next to an iPhone and follow the instructions on the smartphone screen. Still, if you use an Android, it is perfectly possible to have a Powerbeats Pro, pairing the headphones by the traditional method.
Undoubtedly, even by the design of the headphones, the Powerbeats Pro is the ideal choice (among Apple's options) for physical exercise both for rubberized (sweat and water resistant) material and for having A clip that attaches to the ear much more securely than AirPods (which has been redesigned and now adjustable). According to the company, the new headphones also feature “powerful sound, dynamic range balanced and noise isolation for an audio experience. premium“.
For the best possible fit in the widest range of ears, more than 20 configurations were electronically modeled and physically tested. The result, according to the company, is a completely new ergonomically inclined acoustic enclosure that fits comfortably in the ear. In addition, it comes with four ear tip sizes, 23% smaller than its predecessor and 17% lighter.
The battery promises: up to 9 hours of use and over 24 hours of playtime combined with the case with just 5 minutes of recharging you have 1.5 hours; with 15 minutes, until 4.5h!
But those who choose Powerbeats Pro have to shell out: the headsets cost $ 250 ($ 90 more than standard AirPods with non-Qi standard charging case) in black, ivory, navy blue and moss green, and will hit the market in May in the following countries: Germany, Australia, Austria, Belgium , Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Spain, Greece, Netherlands, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macau, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Puerto Rico, United Kingdom, Singapore, Sweden and Switzerland.
