About the Beats by Dr. Dre® Powerbeats Pro
Wire-free Beats earbuds that stay put and last long
Adjustable earhooks keep the 100% wire-free Powerbeats pro earbuds secure and stable during workouts.
Wire-free Beats earbuds that stay put and last long
You might've seen the commercials with pro athletes wearing the Powerbeats Pro true wireless earbuds as they train. My own exercise expertise may pale in comparison, but I do know headphones. And these sweat-resistant workout headphones hit all the right notes — they are 100% wire-free, fit securely, and will play music for up to nine hours on a full battery charge.
That's the current high-mark for battery life in the truly wireless category. Music plays wirelessly via Bluetooth and there is no cord connecting the left and right earbud. Adjustable hooked earpieces keep them in place as you move, and manage to avoid uncomfortable pressure points around the ear.
The beat goes on
The drivers inside the Powerbeats Pro have been completely retooled for clear, dynamic sound. But they still deliver the deep bass impact that put Beats on the map. That's important for running and workout headphones. I've noticed a little extra low-end can get you in the right rhythm to survive those grueling gym sessions.
Fueled by Apple's new H1 wireless chip
The Powerbeats Pro earbuds feature the new, state-of-the-art H1 wireless chip from Apple. While the Powerbeat Pro earbuds will play music wirelessly from any Bluetooth-enabled phone or music source, the H1 chip makes pairing up with Apple devices even more special. A one-tap connection syncs up your compatible iPhone with these headphones, wirelessly. Then, you're automatically paired to other devices on your iCloud account, like your Apple Watch®, iMac®, or iPad®.
Smarter, hands-free Siri® voice control
This new chip makes Siri voice commands easier, too. Instead of having to double-tap the AirPods to activate Siri, you can just say "Hey Siri" and follow it up with a command or request.
The included charging case banks 15 hours of power to recharge the Powerbeats Pro earbuds.
After a one-time setup through a connected device (like your iPhone), Siri will recognize your voice command. Just how smart are these earbuds? When you remove one — or both — music will stop playing, and it resumes as soon as you put them back in.
A carrying case that recharges your earbuds
The headphones get their extended battery life thanks to the H1 chip's power management. When you need to refuel, just click the earbuds into the included charging carrying case. It can bank 15 hours of power to recharge your headphones. Just five minutes inside the case gives you an hour and a half of wireless use.

Overview: The Powerbeats Pro are the first true-wireless in-ear headphones from Beats by Dre. True-wireless headphones feature independent left and right ear buds with no connecting wires to get in the way. Powerbeats Pro deliver clear, dynamic sound and impressive noise isolation to keep your music in and the noise out. The ear buds are sweat- and water-resistant, and the adjustable ear hooks keep them securely in place. The Powerbeats Pro come with a hard-shell charging case, and 4 pairs of ear tips for proper fit.
Apple H1 Chip: Powerbeats Pro is equipped with Apple's H1 Headphone Chip, the same as in the 2nd Generation AirPods. The H1 chip supports Bluetooth 5.0 to help you stay connected, with an extended range and a more stable wireless connection. This means faster connection to your phone calls, faster switching between active devices, and fewer dropouts. Latency is improved with fewer delays between on-screen events and the accompanying audio for a better gaming experience. When used with iOS devices, the H1 chip enables you to activate Siri with your voice by simply saying "Hey, Siri!" for hands-free control.
Controls: The Powerbeats Pro features "mirror" controls, with volume, track, and call controls on both earbuds. This allows you to have full control whether you wear both ear buds or just one.
Auto Play: Both earbuds have optical sensors that can detect when you have put the earphones in your ears and when you have taken them out. With the Auto Play feature, your audio will automatically begin playing when the ear buds are inserted in your ears. When you take them out, your music will automatically pause.
Fit: Four pairs of silicone ear tips are included with the Powerbeats Pro to ensure you will get the best fit and noise isolation possible. The integrated ear hooks are adjustable to give you a secure fit that stays in your ear through even the most rigorous workout.
Battery Life: Each ear bud and the charging case have their own Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. On a full charge, Powerbeats Pro provide up to 9 hours of listening time. With a full charge in the Charging Case, you get more than 24 hours of combined listening time. If you're in a hurry, a 5-minute Fast Fuel charge provides up to 1.5 hours of playback time. The ear buds can only be charged inside the case. The Charging Case charges via the USB-to-Lightning cable supplied in the box.
