Beats by Dre, one of the most popular and fashionable audio accessories in the market, has finally come up with their first ever wireless earphones, the Powerbeats2 Wireless. Athletes, fashionable people, and us ordinary folks who are not fond of both headphones and wired audio accessories will welcome this newest product from Beats.
Aside from looking really cool while wearing these wireless ear pieces, the Powerbeats2 is also sweat and water resistant, which will make it even more attractive for people who love to work out while listening to their favourite jam. It also claims to run on six hours playback, so it can probably last you that whole 100 kilometre marathon. And even though the battery capability is still shorter than some in the market, if you charge it for just 15 minutes after it’s already low, you will still be able to listen to up to an hour’s worth of music after.
The design also tries to solve the “pain-points” of headphones by making the moldings near the flat cable and RemoteTalk controls bigger. The earphones also have the usual volume control and track-skipping button for when you embarrassingly realise that you “accidentally” have a Miley Cyrus song in your playlist. You can also use it as a Bluetooth headset to take calls when your hands are busy but you also need to talk to your best friend badly. Beats assures users that while the shape and look of the Powerbeats2 may be different, it is still the same audio quality as all their other audio accessories.
While Apple acquired Beats late last month, there has been no announcements of major changes yet in terms of product design and line-up. But many are expecting the new Beats products will eventually switch to Lightning to be compatible with other Apple products. Beats by Dre Powerbeats 2 Wireless will be available this month for $199.95.
