Apple Announces Powerbeats Pro: Release Date, Price And Features Detailed

The Bloomberg report says that Amazon's new wireless earbuds will be available during the second half of 2019.

Beats just dropped the official design, along with four colors and all the specs.

Obviously, with its form factor, the charging case is bigger than the AirPods but it doesn't support wireless charging.

Powerbeats Pro pack 9 hours of listening time in each earbud.

The new Powerbeats Pro are 23 percent smaller and 17 percent lighter versus the older version, plus sweat and water resistant.

Let us get down to the most important aspect of the Powerbeats Pro; the price.

Beats unveiled its new Powerbeats Pro earbuds today which are a successor to the Powerbeats 3 buds that feature an over-the-ear support system. The best part of this upcoming device is that you can use that as a reverse wireless charger, that means if your iPhone has enough charge, it can be used as a wireless charging pod for another iPhone that's to be charged. While we obviously can not judge the audio performance of the Powerbeats Pro until properly reviewing them, it's certainly exciting to hear sound was the "highest priority" in their development. Hell, the company is probably hoping you'll be walking into fancy gyms and seeing the Powerbeats Pro everywhere. They have a lively, powerful presentation, although they can sound slightly harsh when it comes to higher-frequency sounds, and they aren't the bassiest earbuds on the market.

The new headphones, dubbed Powerbeats Pro, naturally incorporate numerous same technologies Apple recently introduced with AirPods 2, including hands-free Siri functionality and the company's brand new H1 chip.

So, who should get AirPods 2?

A little late to the party, but with 2019 iPhones, Apple may introduce two-way wireless charging.

In terms of functionality, the Powerbeats Pro behave a lot like the Apple AirPods.

Apple's next iPhone will be able to charge other Apple gadgets by placing them back-to-back with one another, according to a new report.

Powerbeats Pro will come in Black, Ivory, Moss and Navy for $349.95 AUD.
