Product Information

  • Overview

    Performance and power

    Inspired by LeBron James, the Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats2 Wireless headphones are exceptionally light and deliver the power of dual-driver acoustics to propel you through rigorous workouts.

    Designed to endure

    The IPX-4 sweat- and water-resistance rating means Powerbeats2 Wireless are tough from the ear bud to the tangle-free cable wrap around. There's also over-molding on the RemoteTalk for a no-slip grip when you’re changing volume, switching tracks, and making hands-free calls.

    More freedom

    From the street to the court, Powerbeats2 Wireless gives you the freedom to take your workout anywhere. Wireless Bluetooth lets you connect up to 9.1 metres from your Bluetooth-enabled iPhone, iPad or iPod - so you can move freely and stay focused on your workout. A rechargeable battery with 6-hour playback gives you the power to endure to the end. If you’re on empty, a 15-minute quick charge delivers an extra hour of non-stop playback.

    Made to perform

    Designed with your active life in mind, Powerbeats2 Wireless is lightweight and compact with a flexible ear hook to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

Unfortunately they have a huge f These earphones are great for running, they fit very well, are light and the sound is fantastic. Unfortunately they have a huge flaw, whenever you watch video back, be it from an iPhone, PC, Mac, TV anything at all it has about a 2 second delay so everything is out of Sync. I have spoken to Beats support and they feel that the issue is all of the other manufactures need to issue an update to fix this. I explained that all of the other bluetooth headphones I own do not have this problem and work fine with iPhone, Mac Tv etc. Even a little £25 Sony Bluetooth dongle works better than these £170 earphones.

    If you just want them for running then go for it, they sound good and fit well. Don't touch them if you want to use them for watching Video however. In my opinion and at this price they need to do both and these simply don't.

    Needless to say mine are being returned to Apple tomorrow for a refund....

For many I've generally found p I've bought a number of earphones specifically for use when running both on road and a treadmill. For many I've generally found poor fitting not only annoying but also negatively effects the quality of the sound by reducing the bass. My last wireless pair were Jaybird Bluebird X which tend to bounce out of your ear and if you wear the wire up and over your ears as it suggests, the wire keeps bouncing off the back of your neck which is more than a little annoying. I've had the latest Beats wireless earphones for 4 weeks using them pretty much every other day for running and the fit is the best I've experienced from both wired and wireless earphones. You can choose the size of bud and then just push in your ears with the fitting over the back of each ear, then a simple twist and they snugly lock into place. The sound has a great bass which now you can adjust equalisation if you are playing music using the latest Spotify app - however having tried you don't really need to adjust the sound as the fit and sound quality of these earphones are so good anyway.

    The controls seem very sturdy especially compared to my wired Beats earphones that are very plastic and fragile in comparison. You can easily control volume and track play/pause/forward/back. You can also shorten the ear to ear cable that sits comfortably on the back of your neck.

    The only slight downside is the occasional loss of connection. You don't need to do anything as it sorts itself out but I have experienced an occasional drop of sound or jump in the track which I've not experienced with other Bluetooth headsets. It's not really a big deal as it is more of an occasional thing rather than constant occurrence. I wear my iphone around my waist so if you have a wrist case this may not be an problem anyway, however this is why it's a 4 star rather than 5 in my book.

Having the same feeling in mind, I bought this along with the Apple Watch expecting I can just play from my wrist. But I experience a huge connection drops even when I'm wearing the two devices. Even if I cover my watch by my right hand, the connection drops and sound pauses. If I turn my head around, Again! connection drops and music pauses. Funny isn't it?

    I just thought the issue is with my Watch. But No. I tried with my Studio Wireless paring it to my watch and here! They works perfectly fine. So the issue is with the PowerBeats2 wireless. I just can't believe why Beats would release such a low grade product.

    I'm returning the earphones today. Not worth the money at all so not recommending this.

The sou These are the most expensive version of this type of product I found and had high expectations of sound and build quality. The sound output was great, clear high quality. The location of the control switch was awkward sitting past the ear which might explain the biggest fault of all which was the mic quality and background noise reduction. Given what Jawbone can do I was massively disappointed at how difficult is was for callers to hear what I was saying when used as a phone headset. Even if this worked perfectly these are not worth the money.

It seems from the hundreds of reviews saying similar , that sweating causes the earphones to stop charging - no matter how much you reboot them. Cant believe that they have not withdrawn these and changed the design.
