This Beats earbuds deal gets you the Powerbeats Pro totally wireless high-performance earbuds in your choice of colors. Unlike most earbuds, which slot into your ear, these ones come with adjustable ear hooks that help the buds stay in place. It come in especially handy when you’re running or working out, with the earbuds sitting comfortably and securely, even when you’re on the move. The earbuds are sweat-resistant and water-resistant too, and wipe down easily after a heavy training session or hot day at the beach.
We’ve been using the Powerbeats Pro earbuds for over a year and while the ear hooks took a little getting used to at first, we can’t imagine going back to regular earbuds again. The security of knowing the earbuds won’t fall out is a huge plus, and the adjustable hooks actually position the buds better for listening to music too.
Speaking of music, these wireless earbuds pair easily to your phone via Bluetooth and deliver up to nine hours of listening time. Get more than 24 hours with the included charging case. In a pinch, just five minutes of charging can get you up to 1.5 hours of runtime.
Both earbuds feature volume and track settings, so you can simply tap to play or pause your tracks. Once the earbuds are paired to your phone, you can also use Siri to change songs, make calls, check the time, etc.
The Powerbeats Pro uses Apple’s H1 headphone chip and Class 1 Bluetooth, which is generally more reliable for device pairing. What that means: instant connectivity out of the case and fewer dropouts.
This set includes the Powerbeats Pro totally wireless earphones, a charging case, ear tips with four size options (to find the best fit for your ears), a lightning to USB-A charging cable, quick start guide and warranty card. Regularly $249.95, the Powerbeats Pro earbuds are on sale for just $179.95.
The Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds have a 4.6-star rating (out of five) from more than 73,000 reviewers online.
