Built for workouts

Beats Powerbeats3 earphones make life — and fitness — easier. With a brilliant 12 hours of battery life per charge, they’re always ready to go. And even if, by some chance, you do let your Powerbeats3 run out of juice after 12 hours of use, there’s a quick fix. A five-minute charge (called 'Fast Fuel') will give you enough power for a full hour of playback!

Secure-fit ear hooks mean they stay in place no matter what you’re up to, and they won’t fall out of your ears like certain other wireless earbuds. And if you’re outdoorsy, you don’t have to worry about precipitation — these earphones are water-resistant, too.

Says a fan: "These are better than my Airpods I keep losing and a good value for the money."

Another shopper reports: "Have the original pair and purchased these for the longer battery life. Sound quality is fabulous! Wear these while doing yard work, around the house, cleaning etc. for long periods of time and they never hurt or feel uncomfortable. Like that they are connected by a wire so I can take one side out easily without having to put in a pocket or somewhere it may be lost. Have yet to be disappointed with a Beats product."

Impressive features

If you’re an iPhone user, your phone will automatically and seamlessly sync to these wireless headphones thanks to Apple’s ‘magical’ W1 chip. But these Beats Powerbeats3 can pair with just about any Android smartphone as well.

Your Powerbeats3 are noise-canceling during phone calls, too. You’ll get clear, crisp audio and sound like a pro — even if you happen to be going hard on the treadmill.

For $80, we say these guys are definitely worth it. Plus, you can do five 'EasyPays' of $16 a month if you'd like. Easy listening, indeed! Take it from this shopper: "LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE."
