The new 2nd gen Airpods were impressive, but Apple's new Powerbeats Pro are even MORE impressive, especially for active users. But are they good enough to impress non-athletes?

  • pretty sure 400 is not 50 more than 250

    • Liking your own comment huh linus

    • I was thinking that too lol

    • M Isa your joke is hilarious

    • M Isa so 300 usd is 400 cad but 250 Powerbeats will be same in Canada? 250 vs 300, Canada= 330 vs 400

    • M Isa what they’re saying is in Canada it’s $400 CAD while in US it’s $300

  • Nobody buys it they just like airpods

  • Sony enters the chat

  • Who doesn't like a good deep ear penetration? 😁

  • 3:48 "I guess size does matter..." yikes

  • Can I swim with them ?

  • actually, i am keeping the cargo pants dream alive

  • hehe grunting in the gym

  • Bro!!? Beats by Dre are Amazing!!!! Products!!! I don't care who owns the Company name! ( Beats )

  • Mine show up in the find my iPhone app. I love my Powerbeats Pros.

  • I got a similar pair that are wired but those have proper noise cancelling and only cost me 15.

  • I recently purchased the Powerbeats Pro and kinda regret it - I should have gone for the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless or maybe the Sony WF-1000XM3. The main reason is that as an Android user, it's annoying that I can't tell how much battery life I have left on these earbuds, when even low-quality, $15 generic Bluetooth headphones can do that. I watched at least 10 video reviews regarding the Powerbeats Pro prior to the purchase, and none of them said anything about the lack of such a feature. This video by Linus Tech Tips does point it out - thank you! - but I found this video a bit too late.

    • There are apps to do that donkey

    • Vic they are meant for apple devices only show if it is an apple device it’s part of the apple community

  • Listening to this with my Powerbeats Pro

  • These are great if you have tall ears because the hooks are just there to hold them partially, they actually "sit" inside your ear, when you have them for about 2 hrs that can be taxing on your ear, i know i got them the first day they came out and they hurt when i use them for long periods of time. "Linus mentions this"

  • beats???..... lighting port for charging???? LOLX!!! one of he brand that Audiophile avoidl!!! i will stick to my samsung and sony instead lolx... I am an android user. hahaha

    • I mean, they are owned by apple no shit they are gonna use a lightning port?

  • btw just sayn that you can change the eq on the music app itself instead of the buds soooo yea..

  • Guy into hardware, which is rare among ID-tv channels, labels Powerbeats Pro as a GOOD pair of headphones FOR ATHLETES. I'm buying.

  • I'm dead at 2:40

  • Got these now, think many sportbrands dont want to isolate too much noice for joggers etc.

  • I’m listening with the old powerbeats wireless

  • No such thing as too Heavy on the bass

  • U guys prob got brain damage from trying to get it off

  • Deadass dropped them twice on carpet now they dont even charge or reset

  • how was the call quality

  • I love extra bass!

  • There is a native Apple Beats app for Android.

  • Can you review Sony's new earbuds, WF1000XM3? Thank you

  • Can't believe I'm actually really considering buying beats

  • make a review on sony WF-1000MX3

  • Shoulda bought an iphoooooone😂😂

  • Do the sennheiser momentum

  • I am totally disappointed with this product.. beats is missing its beat this time

  • Cargo pants aren’t a thing anymore?! What about cargo shorts? First my jean shorts, now this?!!

  • This review is crap. Apple didn’t do anything crazy here. If your an athlete or just like working out to music, get Jaybirds , there way better and more sweat resistance and leagues ahead in audio quality that these PowerBeats pros. I bought the pro’s and was thoroughly disappointed and they were my first beats I ever bought. I went back got a refund and got Jaybirds and it was night and day and also you can adjust the low, mids, and high settings as well. And you can also check out other people’s audio settings and download them to your Jaybirds wirelessly. Also it has IPX7 sweat and water protection, so if your working out crazily or if water gets on them it isn’t even an issue. Beats are a joke it’s only popular because of the brand name that there made “By Dre”. Don’t fall for this review and spend 250 dollars. Instead get the superior Jaybird workout earbuds at only 110$ for the X4 model.

  • Just got my for box price

  • This is the first in 6 reviews that I have seen which interesting pointed out these PowerBeats don't show up in Apple's "FIND MY..."

  • Senheiser Momentum review if you please...!

  • That case will fit in your pocket if your a fat ass like me

  • Senn MTWs are insanely good. Just go for the best. I am a headphone junkie with almost all of these and for in ears, no comparison. They are THE best.

  • Hi all , i would like to ask if there is any possibility of replacement the battery after 2 years ( i am asking because i saw on beats official site that you can replace the battery for 70 dollars ) Thank you

  • Drat! Apple ownership prevents me from buying these.

  • Am I the only one who is experiencing this problem? I bought this pair of headphones, and I noticed that there’s a problem with them while I am working out. The problem was with the connectivity. They disconnect for 2 to 3 seconds. Also, the sound sometimes changes, and it feels like it is coming from a deep place. I returned them to Apple and get new ones, and still the problem is there with the second pair of headphones.

  • No u can download the beats app and u see evertjing. Haha

  • My Powerbeats pro’s are so comfortable I sometimes forget I’m wearing them.

  • Rilys a she?

  • black is always bigger than white :)

  • Sadly i can't wear any earbuds that have hooks. I have extra cartilage that makes a tiny spike on the back of my ear. It sucks.

  • I miss polar peak

  • anyone use these for full marathon or half ultra 50k running before?

  • I want one

  • Wow... just found your channel. It's awesome. Great job dude! Thank you and Congratulations!!

  • which 3rd party app(battery percentage) works for android.. pls advise

    • @Abraham Varghese it's just Calles Beats in the Play Store.

    • @Mads Poulsen MP could you please post the link to that app here ?

    • Beats own app Calles beats

  • My airpods is just broke now

  • You had me until you said lightning port

  • .... I like cargo pants.

  • 5:31 VERY true Also love the way you used the Apple font

  • non hook earbuds don't stay 5min in my ears momentum would probably last 5s so interesting to me

  • You can download the beats app on android to see battery percentage In a similar way as an iOS device but doesn't conect the same

  • Material irritates the skin

  • I have the AirPods and those are fuckin nice. I’m gonna go buy me a pair
