Live like a King

Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats2 earphones

The Powerbeats2 earphones offer wireless music and calls with Bluetooth compatible smartphones (shown in Black).

Do you think a little sweat and hard work ever bothered LeBron James? Don't let it bother you, either — or your headphones. The sweat- and water-resistant Powerbeats2 wireless headphones are made for workouts, exercise, or everyday mobile use. Inspired by King James himself, this redesign of the original Powerbeats offers better sound and a more comfortable, secure fit. The flexible hooks hold the earphones in place, while a selection of ear tips lets you find the perfect fit. Once they're snugly in your ears, these earbuds can follow you step for step through your workout, so your music can keep you motivated with deep bass and detailed midrange and high frequencies.

Freedom from wires

It's hard to focus on your workout when you have to devote energy and attention to making sure you don't yank your headphone cable out of your smartphone. That's not a problem with the Powerbeats2. They connect to your phone wirelessly with Bluetooth, leaving you free to concentrate on more important things like your jump shot or your stomach crunches. A built-in battery offers up to six hours of listening time. Charge them up with your computer or AC charger using the included USB cable.

RemoteTalk™ cable for music and call controls

The Powerbeats2 features a 20-inch cable with a built-in remote and microphone. The cable tethers the earpieces together and can be adjusted using the included clip. The remote lets you take calls and control music playback with most smartphones, including Apple® and Android™ devices (functionality may vary).

Product Highlights:

  • flexible ear hooks offer a secure, comfortable fit for exercise
  • dual drivers separate the woofer and midrange/tweeter for clearer highs and deeper bass
  • Bluetooth connectivity for wireless music listening and phone calls with compatible smartphones
  • RemoteTalk cable offers music and call controls with most smartphones, including Apple and Android devices (functionality may vary)
  • sweat- and water-resistant
  • built-in rechargeable battery offers up to 6 hours of listening (USB charging cable included)
  • 19-inch cable connecting earpieces can be adjusted with included cable management clip
  • includes four pairs of ear tips for optimum fit and noise isolation
  • carrying case included
  • wireless range: 30 feet
  • weight: 0.85 oz.

Needed some new headphones for the gym so I decided to treat myself with these. Ended up returning them. This is a nice product but there are several problems: 1) if you're looking for the type of sound quality that you get with regular Beats wired headphones, you're not going to get it with these earbuds. The sound quality of this product is decent, but not even in the same league as with the regular wired over/on-the-ear headphones. 2) That brings me to my second point. I like the idea of wireless/Bluetooth, but it's pretty clear the sound quality is degraded compared to, again, regular wired headphones. And with the wireless capability, the earbuds are decidedly bigger/bulkier than regular wired earbuds. So if you don't mind a wire, and you don't want to look like a doofus at the gym with some bulky wireless earbuds hanging from your head, then save yourself a couple of hundred dollars and just get some wired earbuds. You'll get better sound quality that way too.

Pros: Well-built

Cons: Price, sound quality compared to regular wired Beats, bulky

It's great to finally have a pair of earbuds that you will not rip out of your ears when working out or doing activities.

Pros: Sound is great, but could use a little more bass.

Cons: None that I have found yet, other than the bass lacks some.

This is an excellent product! I have purchased three other brands and they all failed in one or more functions. The Powerbeats beats them all. It is a little pricey but still less expensive than the total of three others that didn't meet expectations.

Pros: Workmanship, comfort, sound quality

Cons: A mute button would be nice.

OMG it's Not a necklace - it's a Wire

I thought the thing connecting the ear buds was like a necklace kind of thing, but it's a Wire. I was imagining that the big Wire was something that could be removed, like an eyeglass chain. To my surprise - these are Wire! Don't be fooled - the largest feature of this product - is the big long Wire! If you were standing on one side of the room - and these headphones were on the other side of the room and somebody were to ask you 'hey what is that over there?' ... well you'd probably say something like 'I don't know ... two things connected by a Wire! I just can't believe they call these Wireless ... what in the world is Dr. Dre thinking? Trust me there is no way to pull the big Wire off the ear buds without destroying it. If I had to sum up this product with one word, do you know what it would be? Wire! Big long Wire!

Pros: I suppose there is one less wire going to my iPhone - so it's somewhat wireless - but only a little bit.

Cons: The Wire!

They work well for listening to music but if you want to listen to video, there is an audio delay. Just read all the comments about this on the apple site without any resolution from beats. Wish I would have found out before I purchased these. Too expensive to just use for working out.

Extremely bulky design (even on my big ears), which makes you look ridiculous. Awful lag when watching videos (I know its not its main purpose, but Ive tried other bluetooth headphones and this one is clearly the worst one, it even has lag when pressing the phone keyboard). Other than that the sound quality feels ok (I put 3 stars on sound quality not by the quality itself but because of the lag). Battery life so far OK.

Pros: Sound quality

Cons: Bulky design, Terrible lag (video / audio sync)

very well made headphone, I've been a Bose headphone guy for a long time and finally made the switch and i am never looking back. the sound is amazing, headphones are extremely comfortable, i forget that i have them on sometimes.

Pros: wireless range is great, i can definitely get 20-30 feet from my Bluetooth devise and still here a crisp clean sound

Cons: noise reduction isnt the best, they are by no means noise canceling but i can still hear surrounding noises with my music turned up, i wish the battery life was a little better, fortunately i can charge them on the go as i cannot get more than 5.5-6 hours out of one charge

I got these for my boyfriend for Christmas. He loves them! Mostly he wanted them for working out. They work great for this purpose especially since there is no wire. Also they hook around your ear so they stay in place when you are moving around. All in all a success!

Pros: Wireless, good sound quality, excellent for working out

These fit better than expected, and very comfortable for long wear. Sound is good only. But seem to be very durable. Water, sweat resistant and durability make up for the sound, which is far from bad. Very happy with purchase.

Pros: Way cool! Great build. Very resilient to the elements.

Cons: Price, soung good not great.

I wear headphones every day. So, I saved $ to buy the bluetooth Powerbeats2 wireless. I have sampled other beats products and was impressed. These fall waaaaay short of the Beats products. The volume fluctuates on it's own.... Makes a popping sound from time to time.

Pros: They're built well and they're wireless. The battery lasts a few hours.

Cons: The volume fluctuates on it's own.... Makes a popping sound from time to time. The expense price.... They suck!

This is one of the coolest gadgets I have purchased in a while. It is the perfect product for what it is indented. A little lag when playing videos but I don't use this very often.

Pros: Design. Sound. Battery life.

I tried several sports headphones (maybe 1/2 dozen). Though not perfect, the Powerbeats2 generally fit, stay in and sound good. I can't say that about any of the others I tried. There are some great designs out there, but all of the ones I tried fall short in one of those key categories (fit, sound, stay-in, wireless). The convenience of bluetooth and no wires combined with good fit and good sound made these worth the cost. I've only had mine a month or so, maybe 1/2 dozen workouts, but so far I like them.

Pros: Fit, sound, bluetooth, unobtrusive design.

Cons: Sometimes sweat builds up on them. Have to readjust fit once in a while to continue to get optimum sound.

I would not recommend this to anyone. I returned mine for solo 2's.

Pros: Great sound and design. You can wear them at the gym, on the plane or while driving for hours w/ out discomfort.

Cons: 1. The Bluetooth doesn't work properly if the phone is in your pocket or covered. You get interference and the person can't hear you. 2. There's a video to sound delay when using Apps on you phone. (2 second delay) 3. Wouldn't sync to my PS4 (not compatible)

Features

Overview: The Powerbeats² Wireless in-ear Bluetooth headphones are designed for active lifestyles. They come with a flexible ear hook and four sizes of ear tips so they will stay in your ears as you work out. You can control your music and phone calls with the in-line RemoteTalk remote/microphone. The Powerbeats² are powered by a rechargeable battery, and come with a zippered storage case.

Bluetooth: The Powerbeats² features Bluetooth technology that delivers a clear wireless signal from your Bluetooth-enabled device for up to 30 feet.

Dual Drivers: Each Powerbeats² ear bud has two drivers to deliver your music with power and clarity. These dual drivers provide the Beats Signature sound to power you through your workout.

Water-Resistant: The Powerbeats² Wireless in-ear headphones are IPX4 water-resistant, so you don't have to worry about your headphones when you're working out in the rain, or when you're covered with sweat. The RemoteTalk remote/mic even has a no-slip grip to protect it when you're changing the volume, switching tracks, or making calls.

RemoteTalk: The ear buds are connected by an adjustable wrap-around flat cable with an in-line 3-button RemoteTalk remote and microphone. The controls are fully compatible with iPhone, iPod, and iPad, and partially compatible with Android, Windows, and Blackberry devices. The outer buttons control volume up and down for all of the aforementioned devices. The center button can control music playback on the iPhone, iPod, and iPad (pause/play, next track, previous track), as well as Voice Command and Answer/End call.

Rechargeable Battery: The Powerbeats² Wireless headphones are powered by a 6-hour rechargeable battery. A short USB cable is provided for charging the battery via your computer or another USB charging port. The battery has a quick-charge feature that will provide about an hour of playback with a 15-minute charge. A battery status LED on the top of the left ear bud indicates normal use (white), under 1 hour remaining (red), or under 15 minutes remaining (flashing red). Some smart devices provide additional battery status feedback via an on-screen icon.
