Have just been for my first run with the Powerbeats Pro and these things are a game changer in terms of fit and staying put. I'm pretty sure thats the first time I have run with buds and not had to do any sort of adjustment during the run. I put these in and didn't touch them again till I took them out.

Arrived today. To me they sound about the same as the Powerbeats 3. The fit is a lot better though and they definitely don’t move once in. Having the instant pause when removing from one ear is great and also volume control on both ears so you can use whichever hand is free.



What are your thoughts on the charging case and call quality with these? I’m thinking about replacing my PB2s for these for crossfit training/comps and possibly also use them for work also, but not sure how I feel about the size of the case vs Airpods, and if the call quality will be okay for use in a professional environment.

Mine arrived this morning and I have to say, the set-up was simple - exactly like the AirPods - open the case and you are away laughing. 

 

Fit was fiddly, but I'll get used to that. Nice to see they have added a bit of adjustment in the earhooks (flexible wire inside).

 

Nice and secure and now I have the double flange eartips in, the sound is fantastic. 

 

Much louder than AirPods. Isolation is nice & there's deep bass on the right tracks, but not the signature overwhelming Beats bass thump, which is great. 

 

Listened to samples of Jazz, Metal, Punk, Hip Hop and R&B - all sound good, considering I haven't burnt these in yet.

The case is massive compared to AirPods case...at least twice the size. 

 

It's a quality feeling case, but not pocketable in the same sense that the AirPods case is.
