Apple’s Beats division has launched the Beats PowerBeats Pro true wireless earbuds after the recent launch of AirPods 2. It will be an alternative to Apple’s AirPods 2 for those who want better sound quality and better fit. These earbuds are claimed to have 9 hours of battery life on a single charge which is much more than AirPods 2 which gives 5 hours battery life on a single charge. Also, unlike the new AirPods 2, the Beats PowerBeats Pro will be sweat and water-resistant.
The Beats PowerBeats Pro will come with support for Class 1 Bluetooth connectivity and it is also equipped with the latest Apple H1 chip found in AirPods 2. It will have a superior sound quality and superior noise cancellation compared to the AirPods 2. Due to the Apple H1 chip, it comes with support for “Hey Siri” voice command.
The Beats PowerBeats Pro comes with the lightning port in charging case. It doesn’t feature Qi wireless charging like the AirPods 2, its a major difference between them. As mentioned, on a single charge it can last up to 9 hours and it has support for a feature called Fast Fuel Charging, which provides 1.5 hours of playback time with just 5 minutes of charge. Similar to the AirPods, it comes with IR sensors which pauses music if earbuds removed from the ear. Also, it has physical tactile buttons for volume and playback controls, unlike the AirPods which features touch-sensitive controls.
The Beats Powerbeats Pro price has been set for $249.95 (around Rs. 17,500) and is listed as “Coming Soon” on Beats website. There is no word on market availability and India launch. The Beats Powerbeats Pro will come in four color options – Ivory, Black, Moss and Navy colors.
