The Beats Powerbeats Pro feature adjustable, secure fit ear hooks on each earbud and have Class 1 Bluetooth for faster connection speed and a longer range. Like the newest AirPods, the newly launched earbuds also have the Apple H1 chip which provide for seamless connectivity with the iPhone, iPad and MacBooks. The Powerbeats Pro also supports hands-free “Hey Siri” command to summon the digital voice assistant on iOS devices.
Beats claims the Powerbeats Pro true wireless earbuds have a battery life of 9 hours on a single charge. The charging case of the wireless earphones has an additional battery life of 24 hours which can be replenished via a lightning port. Furthermore, the company claims that a 5-minute charge is enough for a 1.5 hour listening time on the device. Notably, sensors on each earbud are capable of detecting when they’re taken out of one’s ears and automatically pause the music when done so. The music resumes playing when they’re plugged back inside the ear. Unfortunately, there is no support for wireless charging, which was freshly added on the new AirPods.
