In the meantime, the Powerbeats Pro will be available in May via Apple's online and brick and mortar stores.
New Beats by Dre Powerbeats Pro will launch in May in numerous countries including Canada, priced at $329.95. Bloomberg's sources said Amazon's wireless earbuds will come with numerous same features that Apple's AirPods have, but possibly in grey or black color configurations. These are things that many AirPods customers wished the AirPods 2 had and Apple is giving it to them in the form of the Powerbeats Pro.
"We expect the new 2H19 iPhone models will support two-way wireless charging". Sources cited by Bloomberg say that the accessory has been tested in Black and Gray, and is expected to be priced below the current $159-$199 range for Apple's AirPods. That's one big feature which differentiates Powerbeats Pro with the latest AirPods. The case charges with a Lightning connector but they come with a Lightning cable, in case you plan to use them with your Android device. For example, there is a nifty feature with AirPods that works when you pull one of the earbuds out of your ear; the music, podcast or TV show you're watching on Netflix will automatically pause.More news: Donald Trump promises 'epic' trade deal with China
Thurrott said: "They are not cheap at all, but I doubt you will get the AirPods-like experience anywhere else". With AirPods 2, you can ask questions or deliver commands hands-free by saying "Hey Siri".
Powerbeats Pro headphones were "completely re-engineered from the inside out, the earphones boast an upgraded linear piston driver that leverages an efficient, pressurized airflow to create a powerful acoustic response in a small package". The wireless headphones also pair like AirPods, just by opening the magnetic charging case. That's up on the 5 hours of the AirPods, which is impressive.
The Powerbeats Pros will be available starting in May in the USA and 20 other countries and come in four different colors: black, ivory, navy, and moss.
