Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones Review – Improved, But Still Has a Weighty Price

The Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones is basically an encore to what has been considered to be the best-selling wireless earphones in the world. This is the successor to the immensely popular Powerbeats2 Wireless, so it is not surprising that its price point is similar, or in fact exactly the same. Color variations come in black, siren red, shock yellow, flash blue, and white. Just like its predecessor, this third iteration will still be able to hold up rain and water, making it the right companion when you go to the gym or when you’re jogging or cycling around town. However, and still like its predecessor, it is not waterproof, which means you can’t go swimming with it nor should dunk it in water.

The Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones Still Has the Same Price as its Predecessor

In terms of design upgrades, the Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones still mostly employs the looks of its predecessor. However, you would have to take a look closer in order to find the design tweaks. To start, the new iteration brings about a slightly altered design of the earbud post. It is now lengthened slightly, as well as the angle being slightly altered. With this kind of design change, the fit of the headphones is now improved, and it also gives a lot tighter seal for many more ear shapes and sizes.

As for the other changes included with the Powerbeats3, users will now be able to take advantage of a new protective carrying case, that looks arguably like a regular coin purse. Then there’s also the Remote Talk inline remote, in which the performance and design have both been significantly improved. The new inline remote is now made slimmer, and the buttons are now made to be more responsive than ever. Users will be able to skip tracks, adjust the volume, and answer or end calls with it.

The outside portions are not the only areas wherein the new iteration gets an upgrade, as the other big change can be found within. Perhaps following suit with Apple’s idea of doing away with the traditional headphone jack, Beats’ wireless earphones is now equipped with Apple’s custom Bluetooth Chip, which is the W1. Hence, pairing with Apple devices has been made even simpler and easier.

When it comes to sound, the audio performance of the Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones is what you would expect from a sport and fitness-centered headphone – plenty of bass. For bass lovers, do note that the overall experience is very satisfying. However, if you’re looking forward to get this pair, do note that it will set you back by quite a bit as compared to other pairs of wireless earphones on the market.
