Something that will be essential this winter is a solid pair of wireless earphones. They can revolutionize how you work, work out, or enjoy your favorite content — both at home and on the go. Right now, at Best Buy, you can scoreBeats by Dre Powerbeats Pro Totally Wireless Earphones. They’re down to $150 from their regular price of $250. Now those are some holiday savings we can get on board with.
What’s the use of earbuds if they don’t stay in your ears? The Powerbeats Pro have over-ear hooks that keep them in place, making them ideal workout buds that are also all-around winners for listening and talking on-the-go. Known for their big sound, these truly wireless earbuds are pretty subtle in the looks department. But these were made to move. They’re designed with some water resistance against splashes or raindrops, and their physical design works with your movement.
Of course, with all things Beats, the sound rules supreme, especially the bass. They boast the Apple H1 headphone chip, as well as Class 1 Bluetooth which means you don’t need to be right next to the audio source. The Apple chip also allows for efficient pairing and will bring up Siri instantly on an iPhone or any iOS device. The sound quality is fantastically clear, and the bass is as deep and thorough as can be. A speech-detecting accelerometer and multiple microphones that target voices and filter out external noise ensure that the crispness and clarity of voices coming through on calls is unmatched.
And there’s more good news with the battery: A single charge will give you nine hours of music. On top of that, the fully charged case can charge them two times over, giving you 24 hours of battery life. Just need to finish a workout, or a single call? Again, no sweat. Five minutes in the charger gives you 90 minutes of music playback. Amazing!
There are some amazing headphone deals out there, but it’s hard to find more comfortable on-the-go sound than with the Powerbeats Pro. Especially for workouts, which we look to over the holidays and into the winter. Right now, at Best Buy, they’re just $150, down from $250. That’s some of the best truly wireless earbuds out there.
