Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre® Powerbeats2 Wireless

by David Brown

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).

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.

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.

Power Bests 2

Written By muzik lover, Freeport, Ny on Wednesday, September 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I would not recommend this to anyone. I returned mine for solo 2's.
Great sound and design. You can wear them at the gym, on the plane or while driving for hours w/ out discomfort.
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)
