Shape and design

Apple’s wireless earbuds have a modern look we all used to and are quite similar to Samsung’s.

Powerbeats Pro might more comfortable during workouts with a secure fit that stays in your ear.

Beats says “over 20 configurations were electronically modeled and physically tested. The result is a completely new, ergonomically angled acoustic housing that nests comfortably in the concha bowl of the ear with an off-axis nozzle.”

 

Colors 

The AirPods are only available in white, but Powerbeats Pro available in Black, Ivory, Moss, and Navy

If you desire brighter colors, consider yellow Samsung Galaxy Buds.

Case and wireless charging

Beats’ earbuds have a much larger case which some people consider as a disadvantage as it’s hard to squeeze in your pocket.

Moreover, Powerbeats Pro’s case doesn’t support Qi wireless charging.

Other key pecularities 

  • Battery life: Powerbeats Pro – 9 hours, AirPods – 3 hours;
  • Apple H1 chip: both earbuds have this chip that allows performing hands-free “Hey Siri” voice commands;
  • Automatic pause and resume: as AirPods, Powerbeats Pro stops the music when you take off one of the earbuds;
  • Android compatibility: AirPods and Powerbeats Pro pair to an Android smartphone like any other Bluetooth device;

Price 

The Powerbeats Pro is more expensive then AirPods, however, it still cheaper than Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless and Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8.

  • Apple AirPods: $159;
  • Apple AirPods with wireless charging case: $199;
  • Beats Powerbeats Pro: $249.95;

So, if all the pros of Beats’ new wireless earbuds are enough for you to pay $50 more, then grab them in May.
