I can definitely see Powerbeats Pro dethroning my $60 Urbanears Hellas as the undisputed king of exercise headphones, but I’m not sure if Powerbeats Pro will become my “everyday” headphones like my AirPods are. I’m interested to find out.
This isn’t a complete review of Powerbeats Pro, and I’m looking forward to spending more time with the headphones to learn more about their pros and cons. So far, though, I’m impressed by Powerbeats Pro. Beats created an excellent, versatile design that feels good to wear regardless of setting, and no matter what you’re doing; you’ll often forget you’re wearing them. They’re great for the gym, or if you want to just sit and listen to music at your desk, or on your commute.
In just 24 hours of testing, I’m feeling optimistic that I’ve found the perfect pair of wireless headphones. I think they definitely justify their $250 price point, and will make lots of people very happy.
