Overview: Powerbeats by Dr. Dre are high performance, in-ear
headphones that are designed to stay in place. The ear buds stay securely in
your ears while you work out, and the soft, moisture-resistant materials remain
comfortable. The unique in-line remote and microphone let you control your music
and your phone calls without having to interrupt your workout. The Powerbeats
come with 3 sizes of ear buds, an extension cable, and a hard shell zippered
case for storage.
Design: The earbuds are angled to fit the natural curvature
of your ear canal, while the rubber sport hook holds them securely in place.
Each ear bud has two drivers to provide clear highs and mids, while the silicone ear tips
provide a good seal to maintain a good bass response. Powerbeats have an open
design to let in ambient noise so you're always aware of your surroundings.
Cable: The attached cable is the ideal length to reach your
phone or music player as you wear it, but not too long that it becomes an
annoyance. An extension cable is included in case you need the extra length. The cable terminates into a
3.5mm plug that will work with most smartphone cases.
In-line Remote/Microphone: The in-line remote and microphone are fully
compatible with most Apple devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad). The 3-button remote and
mic are supported only by iPod nano (4th generation or later), iPod classic
(120GB and 160GB), iPod touch (2nd generation or later), iPhone 3GS or later,
and iPad. The remote is compatible with iPod shuffle (3rd
generation or later), and audio is supported by all iPod and iPad models. The
remote is also partially compatible (play/pause, answer/end calls, and voice
commands) with Android, Blackberry, and HTC devices.
Note: Full compatibility includes the following functions:
Play/pause, Skip forward/backward, Scan forward/backward, Answer/End calls,
Voice command, and Volume control.
Ear Tip Assortment: The Powerbeats in-ear headphones include an assortment of
soft rubber ear tips. There are three sizes of ear tips (large, medium, and
small). One pair (medium) comes installed on
the earphones, while the others are stored in a vinyl folder with a snap
