Overview

Our take on the Powerbeats by Dr. Dre®

If you rely on music to drive you through a hard workout at the gym or outdoors, then you need the Powerbeats — lightweight sports 'phones from Beats. Co-developed by Dr. Dre and LeBron James, these earbuds use adjustable ear "hooks" that wrap around your ears to keep the buds securely in place, no matter how much you move. Advanced driver technology means that you hear smooth vocals and crisp highs. And a separate woofer pumps out deep bass — perfect when you need that beat to keep yourself on pace.

Bumpin' sound for your tough workouts

If you work out with your smartphone, you can use the universal remote built into the cord to control music playback without having to dig into your pocket for the player. You can even answer calls on your Apple® or Android™ phone hands-free, thanks to an in-line microphone.

Features

Overview: Powerbeats by Dr. Dre are high performance, in-ear sport 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 super-slim 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 closure.
