Both wireless earbuds offer always-on "Hey Siri" recognition.

Who are the Beats Powerbeats Pro for?

"We expect the new 2H19 iPhone models will support two-way wireless charging". According to the website, the Powerbeats Pro boast 9 hours of listening time. At that price, they'd better be beyond impressive.

The wireless incarnation of the earlier Powerbeats 3 headphones, unlike Airpods these will not actually fall from your ears when you exercise, and are sweat and water resistant, making them suitable for your daily workout.

You can also purchase the charging case separately for AED 329, which is good news if you have the original AirPods but want to upgrade your case to one that supports wireless charging, although you might feel it's a high price to pay for some added convenience. As an Apple brand, the Powerbeats Pro earphones are first and foremost created to work best with iPhones, but they will work on Android too.

Along with sounding better, they should also be much more comfortable to wear with Beats saying fit and stability is paramount to its Powerbeats Pro. With the exception of the wireless charging capability, there was only a minimal spec change, and none of the features everyone expected. Beats went a step ahead to deck out the earbuds with optical sensors which allow for the earbuds to automatically play or pause music when they're inserted or removed. This means you can use them with Apple's virtual assistant, Siri, and the earbuds should also take advantage of the extra speed and wireless stability that the chip brings. In talking to the Beats team, they kept circling back to sound quality and emphasising how they really thought they'd gotten the acoustics right with clean, balanced and rich, deep bass. Pairing is done via the Powerbeats Pro case-simply opening the lid for the first time prompts pairing mode, and the earphones are compatible with both iOS and Android devices. They are not cheap at all, but I doubt you will get the AirPods-like experience anywhere else. And damnit, they do sound great. You'll be able to find them in stock at Apple stores starting in May. Unlike AirPods, which you can get in any color as long as its iPod iconic white, you can get Powerbeats Pro in ivory, black, navy blue, or moss green.
