The Powerbeats Pro truly wireless earphones from Beats by Dre are a serious investment. There’s no way around it. But for your investment, you get a pair of headphones that will honest-to-god raise the bar for all other headphones to unheard of heights. They’re that good. So good, we endorsed them as our favorite wireless headphones. And in a truly lucky break, that investment just got a little less hefty: Amazon has the Powerbeats Pro on sale for $ 50 off right now.
Normally, Beats’ Powerbeats Pro are priced at $ 250. And from where we’re sitting, paying that price is worth it. These wireless headphones were built for workouts and long commutes. They have incredible audio quality, like you’d expect from Beats, as well as intuitive controls. When they’re fitted into your ears, the AutoPlay feature automatically prompts your music, podcast, or TV show to start playing wherever you last left off. They won’t constantly pair and unpair with your phone either, like some other, cheaper headphones do.
As for comfort, the Powerbeats Pro come with four sizes of ear tips, and the ear piece is adjustable, so you won’t get that awful ear hole ache from wearing them too long. And you’ll be able to wear them for a long time. The battery life is superb, giving you nine hours on one charge, plus 24 more hours in the portable charging case. Because yeah, they come with a charging case. If you need juice fast, it’ll give you an hour-and-a-half of playback after just five minutes of charging.
We don’t know how long Amazon’s limited-time deal on the Powerbeats Pro earphones will last. But we do know that we’d buy them full-price. That 20 percent discount just sweetens the pot. Get ’em now for 200 bucks, and never futz around with crappy Bluetooth earpieces during your workout or commute again.
