Apple Beats unveils Powerbeats Pro wireless earphones with H1 chip, ‘Hey Siri’

Samsung Galaxy Buds

Apple says they tested over 20 configurations of ears to find the best fit with Powerbeats Pro and its ear hooks.

We first heard about Powerbeats Pro when 9to5Mac spotted an animation for the unannounced earphones in an iOS update, and Apple has now officially announced the product. They told me that the company wanted a completely untethered earbud for sports that also improved upon earlier Beats earbuds in every way.

Sound was the highest priority in the development of Powerbeats Pro. You'd be better off pouring your money on a cheaper and better alternative, like the Brio True Wireless Earbuds. Beats posits that five minutes of charging affords 1.5 hours of playback. But on paper, it's a big win for both.

The most interesting element of this announcement though is the proximity to the release of the new AirPods.

A great solution for comfort, fit and stability was paramount to Powerbeats Pro because of its direct impact on sound delivery. You can tell as soon as you put them on, too.

As an example, McConnell said senate Republicans would be "working on prescription drug pricing and other issues". It will be on full display during the Election as a much better & less expensive alternative to ObamaCare...

Powerbeats Pro pack 9 hours of listening time in each earbud. Along with the powered case, you can get up to 24 hours combined. You just don't have to charge the Beats as often to reach it. Unlike the AirPods, which are only available in a single color option, the latest wireless earbuds will be available in four; Black, Navy, Ivory, and Moss. Even if I can't now decide between navy and black. These are things that many AirPods customers wished the AirPods 2 had and Apple is giving it to them in the form of the Powerbeats Pro.

As you might expect, the Alexa headphones "will let people use their voice to order goods, access music, weather and other information on the go", and you'll summon Amazon's assistant by saying "Alexa".

Powerbeats Pro To be continued. In talking to the Beats team, they kept circling back to sound quality and emphasising how they really thought they'd gotten the acoustics right with clean, balanced and rich, deep bass.

If you thought the $199 AirPods with wireless charging case are expensive, the $249.95 Beats Powerbeats Pro without a wireless charging case are probably not for you.

And, who should get Powerbeats Pro?
