  • Our expert review Beats Powerbeats Pro: great wearing comfort during exercise

    Lucas. Audiospecialist. | 12 February 2020 | Collection color: Black | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Nice wearing comfort due to ear hook
    • Connected quickly to iPhone
    • Also works with Android
    • Deep bass
    • Battery lasts a long time
    • Less suitable for spectacle wearers
    • Sound leaks more than other earbuds

    The Powerbeats Pro is the successor of the Powerbeats 3. The first thing that strikes me is that this successor is completely wireless. As a result, I enjoy more freedom of movement and I never get stuck with a cable again. Furthermore, the earplugs look good in terms of design, but they are less suitable for glasses wearers.

    Earplugs stay put
    The earplugs have an ear hook that I adjust myself to the position I want. So I sometimes put it tight and sometimes less tight around my ears. Especially during sports I tighten it up so that they don't fall out of my ears. The earplugs are a lot better during exercise than normal earplugs because of this earhook. Because the ear hook goes over your ears, the earplugs are less suitable for wearers of glasses.

    Connected quickly to my iPhone
    The Powerbeats Pro have the H1 chip from Apple, so I can quickly connect the earbuds to my iPhone. I just open the charging case and my iPhone detects the earbuds right away. This way I don't have to connect them manually every time via the bluetooth settings of my phone. This is necessary when I want to connect the earbuds to an Android device.

    Deep bass motivates during exercise
    With earplugs, I think it's important that the bass is powerful. This works for me while exercising. The Powerbeats Pro don't really have a powerful, but more of a deep bass. I don't mind this, as a deep bass also motivates me. In addition, the sound is well balanced. I did notice that the sound leaks, which means that the people around me hear more of my music than I want.

    Every sports session in my bag
    I'm not afraid that the battery of the earbuds will run out quickly during exercise. After exercise, I put them in the charging case. In this I fully charge them and I can listen to music again for 9 hours. When the battery of the earbuds is empty, I charge them within 15 minutes to use for 4.5 hours.

    • Battery life

    • Putting in takes some getting used to

    Ever since the announcement I was waiting for the sale of Powerbeats Pro in the Netherlands. Ever since Apple left out the jack plug on its devices, I've had a set of "wireless" BeatsX earplugs. The wearing comfort of those earplugs has actually become increasingly difficult for me all this time, mainly because of the cord between the left and right sides. Airpods don't sit well with me anyway, so this product could be the next step. After I received a stock notification email from Coolblue, I ordered the Powerbeats Pro and received it yesterday.

    The earplugs and case are neatly packed in a sturdy small box. Packaging as you might be used to from Apple (and now also Beats). In the box you will find the earplugs, the charging case, a black lightning-to-USB-A cable, 3 other sizes/shapes silicone tips and some stickers and papers.

    After unpacking, immediately grabbed the iPhone and opened the charging case of the Powerbeats. The familiar animation quickly appeared on the iPhone's screen and after pressing the pairing button, the set was ready to use. And then suddenly ready for use on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch because of synchronization via iCloud. After unpacking and connecting the caps, I only used the caps for a short time and mainly tested how they stay in place with strong head movements. There was nothing to complain about at that point. They stay in place very well. When put back in the case, the caps are, as it were, automatically "sucked" into the right place by the built-in magnets. They also stay in place well.

    A day later at the office, it is time to put them to the test for a longer period of time. Plug in the ears, switch on Spotify on the iPhone and listen to music in the midst of all your colleagues. Putting it in requires some dexterity, but after a few practice times this is simple and good. The trick is to twist the hook from front to back around the ear and then push the cap into the ear. The connection with the iPhone is made quickly and within a few seconds I am listening to music between typing and talking colleagues. With the Powerbeats at half volume, I can just hear my own keystrokes, but I hear almost nothing from my colleagues. No keys, no talking. Not bad for caps that don't have NC and purely because of the seal with the silicone tip, they keep out ambient noise.

    At the time of writing, I've had the Powerbeats in my ears for several hours now, with no irritation or discomfort at all. That was certainly different with the aforementioned BeatsX. Operating the earplugs is also easy with the aid of the physical buttons that are present on both ears. Play, pause, skip track, adjust volume, everything is simple and good. The wearing detection also does its job well: remove 1 of the earplugs from your ear and the music will stop playing. If you put the earplugs back, the music will immediately resume. If you don't want this, you can simply turn it off in the Bluetooth settings of the Powerbeats Pro.

    I really enjoyed the first hours with the Powerbeats Pro. After at least 3.5 hours of music playback (again: at 50% volume), 74% of the battery charge remains in the earplugs. What I haven't done with them yet and plan to wear them for running. Based on last night's head movement test, I don't expect any unpleasant surprises in terms of wearing comfort and staying put.

    Perfect for workouts

    • stay put
    • Can be used with one earbud
    • Splash-proof
    • Very long operating time
    • Clear sound
    • Reduced functionality on Android
    • No noise canceling / ambient noise can be heard (wind noise)
    • Putting in not intuitive
    • Sometimes I had pain in the ears with long-term use
    • Charging only via charging case

    Before this I had the (semi-)wireless Fitbit Flyer in-ear earplugs and now wanted earplugs that are completely wireless and can be used well during workouts.

    For me is important:
    - Stay seated while running
    - Minimum IPX4 (splash-proof)
    - Control on earbuds
    - Good bluetooth connection
    - Battery life
    - Good sound with bass
    - Have to sit comfortably

    I searched, compared and slept on it for nights and came to the conclusion that my ultimate true wireless earbuds are a combination of Beats PowerBeats Pro and Apple AirPods Pro; active noise canceling with Ambiant Aware and TalkThru technology and Beats design. Both are mainly aimed at Apple users and have reduced functionality for Android, although the Apple AirPods Pro in Android really lack important functions (such as turning active noise canceling on and off).

    While comparing, I weighed up the following other wireless earbuds:
    - HUAWEI FreeBuds 3 - are an alternative to the Apple AirPods Pro due to the active noise canceling with ambiance mode, but require a HUAWEI phone (EMUI10) for full functionality.
    - Jabra Elite 75t - think these could fall out of the ears while running
    - JBL Live 300TWS - have Ambiant Aware and TalkThru technology but have yet to come out and think these could fall out of the ears while running.
    - AfterShokz Trekz Air - uses bone conduction and think these are also less suitable for runners.
    - Sony WF-1000XM3 - are not sweat and water resistant.
    Others like JBL Reflect Flow, Sennheiser Momentum, Sennheiser CS Sport, Bose SoundSport Free, Under Armor True Wireless Flash, Jaybird Vista, Amazon Echo Buds, Samsung Galaxy Buds and Anker Soundcore Liberty Air didn't meet my requirements at all.

    The earbuds come with a charging case which works as a kind of power bank. The earbuds can be charged via the charging case and the charging case can be charged via a 5V adapter (not included). The charging case has an (Apple) lightning connection. It is not possible to charge the earbuds in any other way. On the other hand, it is nice to charge the earbuds on the go while they are safely stored.

    I am very impressed with the battery life. My Fitbit Flyer were empty after 4 hours of use, but they were still at 80% after 5 hours.
    It is possible to use one earbud.
    Inserting the earbuds is not intuitive and requires some practice.
    After wearing it for a long time, my ears started to hurt. By placing the earbuds a little less deeply in my ears, the pain went away. I will try it with larger eartips and/or other eartips.
    These earbuds have no noise canceling, which is especially noticeable outside. The ears are not completely closed off from ambient noise. Wind noise can also be heard. My Fitbit Flyer seals out the ambient noise better and is more comfortable.
    With Android, the battery percentage can only be viewed via external apps, such as Beats.

    All in all, these earbuds tick the boxes that are important to me, but with active noise canceling they would have been perfect for me.
