After just two weeks after the announcement of AirPods 2, Apple introduced yet another wireless headphone. This time the accessory was published under the brand Beats, becoming a continuation of the line of Powerbeats. Despite the fact that the product is made in the style of previous models, changes has accumulated is really a lot of in – ear headphones got the H1 chip with support for the feature “Hey Siri”, a charging case and lost the wire that connects both of the liner. But about all under the order.
The first change, which is definitely worth a mention is the new coprocessor H1. Thanks to him, Powerbeats Pro became faster to connect to the source, and the connection became more stable. In addition, for the first time in the line of headphone Beats appeared fully supports “Hey Siri”. Option works exactly the same as in 2 AirPods.
The second major change is the way of the charging accessory. Now Powerbeats come with a special charging case. However, with small capacity — fully charged headphones will only be possible twice. Also, on the headphone now there is no power button. Start listening can be immediately after you unplug the earphones from the case.
As expected, Powerbeats got improved emitters (speakers). The manufacturer promises balanced sound, wide dynamic range and noise. In addition, improved sound quality and voice during phone calls.
Playback time from a single charge increased in comparison with the old generation now listen to music for nine hours, which significantly exceeds the rate of those AirPods. The total time of Autonomous operation (with charging case) — 24 hours.
