When you think of Beats headphones, you probably picture the full-on over-ear headset you can spot a mile away. But the brand now has a way more discreet— and lightweight—option ideal for working out, and it's just as amazing as its predecessor.
The Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earphones are as intriguing as they sound, with a great design and secure fit that make them perfect for the gym. As you jump into 2022 feet first, pumped to get fit and stay active, you'll find yourself super motivated by the ease and audio quality of these ’buds. They actually make you look forward to getting on that treadmill.
Now's the moment to grab them: These popular ’buds rarely go on sale, but for some reason Amazon just knocked $70 off the price. Amazon will ship your Powerbeats Earphones to you for free, but If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get speedy shipping plus great new streaming content, discounts at Whole Foods and a lot more.

Originally priced at $250, the Powerbeats Pro are currently available for just $180. They have everything a great pair of wireless headphones should have, including a compact build, a nine-hour battery life, comfy earhooks that fit like a dream, and, most important, top-notch sound with wide-spectrum audio and world-rocking bass. No wonder they've garnered more than 50,000(!) five-star reviews on Amazon.
The Powerbeats Pro also feature the brand’s own 'Fast Fuel' technology, which adds about an hour-and-a-half of battery life on only a five-minute charge. That's a booster shot anyone can appreciate.
"I’m extremely picky when it comes to headphones and I’ve bought over 20 pairs from Amazon, from name brands to no-name brands," one enthusiastic reviewer shared. "This is the first pair of headphones that I’ve worn to the gym that have not needed a single adjustment! I have weird ears and no in-ear headphones have ever fit me this well. The seal is great, and they just don't move!"
Sweat- and water-resistant, the Powerbeats Pro are excellent for gym workouts, long runs around the neighborhood or strolling in the snow. Says a happy customer: "If you workout, [these are] better than any high end wireless headphones/earphones.... Battery life, and sound quality is absolutely perfect. The earphones hold perfectly in place even during HIIT, and the sweat resistant makes it better than apple AirPods.
While these ’buds do not have active noise-canceling, they do offer strong noise isolation, with a sealed in-ear design (thanks to customizable ear tips). They seamlessly sync to just about any Apple iPhone, iPad or MacBook — and they work just as well with Android smartphones and tablets, via Bluetooth. Included is the charging case, four eartips in various sizes, and a charging cable.
Beats is owned by Apple, but the Powerbeats Pro is Beats' effort to upstage Apple’s AirPods—and they definitely give ’em a run for their money...and a great return on yours. Especially at $70 off!
"First of all, I am a huge Beats fan...," one reviewer raved. "I have enjoyed the Powerbeats lineup for years but was waiting until they finally came out without wires! I do have AirPods as well but I can't keep them in my ears.... I needed wireless buds that wouldn't fall out, and I found them!!! Great quality! In my opinion stronger than the AirPods. 5 stars!"
