Apple subsidiary Beats by Dre today announced its new Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earphones, a direct competitor to the AirPods, with Apple touting out that the Powerbeats Pro deliver "powerful, balanced sound with dynamic range and noise isolation for a premium listening experience."

Like the AirPods 2, Beats' PowerBeats Pro includes Apple's custom designed H1 chip, which enables the "Hey Siri" functionality, while also featured with the "Class 1 Bluetooth technology" for extended range and fewer dropouts. "No longer do you have to choose between performance and practicality--it delivers the best on both fronts," says Luke Wood, president of Beats.

In terms of design, each earbud has physical controls with a dedicated volume button for adjusting the volume, and a button for answering and rejecting calls and changing the track currently playing. And, for the first time, you can purchase the Powerbeats Pro in four colors: Black, Ivory, Moss, and Navy. 

Other highlights of PowerBeats Pro include up to 9 hours of battery life; sweat and water resistance; comes with the magnetic closure case that provides up to 24 hours of additional playback; 23 percent smaller and 17 percent lighter than its predecessor: automatically detect when they are in your ear. As for the price, which will be listed for $250, charge you an extra of $50 - $90 than the Gen 2 AirPods.
