Lebron James is the NBA's MVP two years running. Power beats are in-ear speakers, so music can be the driving force in your game. James, Dr. Dre and Monster designed them for ideal fit while playing hard, with your surroundings audible.
Music is a driving force in the game of many top athletes. Now, it can bring out the best in yours. Whether you work out hard at the gym, play to win in team sports, or enjoy moving to music, Powerbeats is the breakthrough in-ear headphone you've been waiting for.
Gone are the days of buds threatening to fall out of your ears and cramp your playing style. An adjustable/bendable ear hook with flexible arm keeps Power beats securely in place, no matter how aggressively you move. Plus, they resist sweat and ultra-violet light, ideal for the outdoors.
What's more, Power beats deliver awe-inspiring sound with separate subwoofer and midrange tweeter for thunderous bass, silky vocals and clean, undistorted highs. And advanced passive sound isolation keeps the music in with your surroundings audible so you stay on top of your game.
Better still, ControlTalk conveniently located on-cable, makes it easy to take calls hands-free without fumbling for your smartphone, iPhone or iPad. Plus, it gives you track seeking control with any MP3 player, iPod, or music phone.
Headphones aimed at the fashionable consumer are not in short supply these days, but one would think that the last place people are concerned about gadget style would be the gym. However, plenty of manufacturers are banking on the belief that you want good-looking tech no matter how sweaty you are, hence the Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Sport Headphones from Monster. These $150 earphones offer a secure fit, integrated iPhone controls, and a sleek look--but they're also pricey for workout headphones, and they don't seem particularly durable or sweat-resistant.
Still, Monster has the style down with the Powerbeats. Anyone who likes the look of the overall Beats by Dr. Dre line will certainly be drawn to these athletic earbuds. Eye-catching chrome earpieces are attached to a sleek black arm adorned with the signature lowercase 'b' logo. Rubber hooks are attached to each 'bud, keeping them firmly in place during jogs and aerobics. Monster includes three sizes of silicone tips to help with the comfort and fit of the in-ear portion of the earphones.
That said, the Powerbeats may not be comfortable for all wearers, as they tended to cause this tester pain after resting in the ear for about 45 minutes. Also, there is only one set of ear loops, not removable, which could cause fit problems for some. Finally, we question the durability of the headphones, since the red cable is quite thin and the earpieces don't seem sweat-resistant (nor is that feature mentioned anywhere on the product packaging or site).
The Powerbeats headphones come with a nice, hard-sided carrying case and a shirt clip for attaching the cable on your person. This will come in handy for those who want to use the integrated mic with a mobile phone. The diamond-shaped module also bears volume controls and a single button for answering calls as well as adjusting playback on any iOS device (Play/Pause and Track Forward/Reverse)
In performance testing, we weren't exactly disappointed by the sound offered by the Powerbeats, nor were we blown away. Audio comes through as clear and reasonably warm, with a little oomph on the low end. In fact, the earphones are capable of a decent low-end punch, but only if you shove the earpieces directly into the ear, which is not how they're meant to be worn. These headphones are designed not to block out external noise, which is a good thing for anyone who works out outside. However, the sacrifice here is bass, so if that's what you need to kick your fitness routine up a notch, look elsewhere.
The good: The Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Sports Headphones will offer a secure fit for the average user, and the design lends itself well to jogging and other outdoor activities. The set includes some useful extras such as a hard-sided case and a remote and mic module for use with iOS devices. Audio is clear, and the look is stylish.
The bad: Although the Powerbeats are capable of producing bass, the fit and design don't allow the user to fully enjoy it. They are expensive for fitness earphones, and they don't seem particularly durable or sweat-resistant.
The bottom line: The Powerbeats by Dr. Dre Sports Headphones are a reasonable option for style-conscious runners with money to burn, but most fitness-minded listeners would be better served by other options on the market.
