The new 2nd gen Airpods were impressive, but Apple's new Powerbeats Pro are even MORE impressive, especially for active users. But are they good enough to impress non-athletes?

  • pretty sure 400 is not 50 more than 250

    • I was thinking that too lol

    • M Isa your joke is hilarious

    • M Isa so 300 usd is 400 cad but 250 Powerbeats will be same in Canada? 250 vs 300, Canada= 330 vs 400

    • M Isa what they’re saying is in Canada it’s $400 CAD while in US it’s $300

    • wrr, anys ok

  • make a review on sony WF-1000MX3

  • Shoulda bought an iphoooooone😂😂

  • Do the sennheiser momentum

  • I am totally disappointed with this product.. beats is missing its beat this time

  • Cargo pants aren’t a thing anymore?! What about cargo shorts? First my jean shorts, now this?!!

  • This review is crap. Apple didn’t do anything crazy here. If your an athlete or just like working out to music, get Jaybirds , there way better and more sweat resistance and leagues ahead in audio quality that these PowerBeats pros. I bought the pro’s and was thoroughly disappointed and they were my first beats I ever bought. I went back got a refund and got Jaybirds and it was night and day and also you can adjust the low, mids, and high settings as well. And you can also check out other people’s audio settings and download them to your Jaybirds wirelessly. Also it has IPX7 sweat and water protection, so if your working out crazily or if water gets on them it isn’t even an issue. Beats are a joke it’s only popular because of the brand name that there made “By Dre”. Don’t fall for this review and spend 250 dollars. Instead get the superior Jaybird workout earbuds at only 110$ for the X4 model.

  • Just got my for box price

  • This is the first in 6 reviews that I have seen which interesting pointed out these PowerBeats don't show up in Apple's "FIND MY..."

  • Senheiser Momentum review if you please...!

  • That case will fit in your pocket if your a fat ass like me

  • Senn MTWs are insanely good. Just go for the best. I am a headphone junkie with almost all of these and for in ears, no comparison. They are THE best.

  • Hi all , i would like to ask if there is any possibility of replacement the battery after 2 years ( i am asking because i saw on beats official site that you can replace the battery for 70 dollars ) Thank you

  • Drat! Apple ownership prevents me from buying these.

  • Am I the only one who is experiencing this problem? I bought this pair of headphones, and I noticed that there’s a problem with them while I am working out. The problem was with the connectivity. They disconnect for 2 to 3 seconds. Also, the sound sometimes changes, and it feels like it is coming from a deep place. I returned them to Apple and get new ones, and still the problem is there with the second pair of headphones.

  • No u can download the beats app and u see evertjing. Haha

  • My Powerbeats pro’s are so comfortable I sometimes forget I’m wearing them.

  • Rilys a she?

  • black is always bigger than white :)

  • Sadly i can't wear any earbuds that have hooks. I have extra cartilage that makes a tiny spike on the back of my ear. It sucks.

  • I miss polar peak

  • anyone use these for full marathon or half ultra 50k running before?

  • I want one

  • Wow... just found your channel. It's awesome. Great job dude! Thank you and Congratulations!!

  • which 3rd party app(battery percentage) works for android.. pls advise

    • @Abraham Varghese it's just Calles Beats in the Play Store.

    • @Mads Poulsen MP could you please post the link to that app here ?

    • Beats own app Calles beats

  • My airpods is just broke now

  • You had me until you said lightning port

  • .... I like cargo pants.

  • 5:31 VERY true Also love the way you used the Apple font

  • non hook earbuds don't stay 5min in my ears momentum would probably last 5s so interesting to me

  • You can download the beats app on android to see battery percentage In a similar way as an iOS device but doesn't conect the same

  • Material irritates the skin

  • I have the AirPods and those are fuckin nice. I’m gonna go buy me a pair

  • "No one has a homepod." lol

  • I have a google pixel and mine keep skipping. Any idea what's wrong?

  • I like how u review in a nerdy style. Especially with the jokes

  • Beats?! Naah, I pass....

  • So they still sound sub par ?

  • Umm 3:47

  • I feel like the Powerbeats don’t have enough bass

  • Want to see how this stands against the Sony WF-1000XM3

    • Henry Kam honesty Sony will crush them in sound but the beats will be more for the active lifestyle

  • deep ear penetration... ill show you deep ear penetration with my apple earbuds......... notice how i didnt say earpods or airpods.

  • Just bought them today... pretty awesome. Really worth all the time I saved up for it

    • Not the kind that noise cancelling headsets can give you. And it’ll also depend on the ear inserts you choose. I actually don’t want the noise cancelling feature because I don’t want to get run over by a car when I run. I opted for the smallest of the four and even then I needed to twist it a bit counterclockwise for my left and clockwise for my right so I can have more ambient sound come in. But that’s only when I want to hear maximum ambient. One thing I can see an improvement on is the ease of the play/pause button. It’s too easy to press, but it’s not that bad to be a dealbreaker for me.

    • Domster how is it audio quality? Do have it noise cancelling?

  • i got airpods recently. one fell out of my ear at the gym today now im sold on the powerbeats

  • The huge charging case is a readon enaigh to not buy them

  • Just wondering & out of curiosity, is the sound noise-cancelling? I mean can others hear what you're hearing?

  • “She did try” xd

  • 30 minutes is 9 hours

  • just bought them, love them so far, but the first thing that came to mind was that i wished they had an app with some sort of way to control the behind-the-scenes stuff.

    • Hi, did I make a mistake wearing them? I send them back because there's a bad isolation to outside. When I turn up the volume more than 50% you can hear the music outside. Do you have the same issue?

  • Lightning port? Trash.

  • may i have cooperation with you?

  • Wtf is going on? He's not shitting on this product from top to bottom. Idk how to feel.

  • first time seeing linus not taking a shit the size of a dinosaur feces on apple

  • I'd be a lot more inclined to buy the PowerBeats if that case wasn't absolutely ginormous.

  • Can they just release the other colours ugh so annoying

  • They look silly

  • I prefer my AirPods 2 over these. I just purchased them from the Apple store got home was excited and it was a major let down. My AirPods sound better or the same as Powerbeats pro just without the extra bass. I thought it would be a huge difference but meh returning them tomorrow

  • Believe it or not the bass is actually flat. Apple tuned them to the latest research that shows in-ears need a sub bass boost. Beats haven’t been about bass since apple acquired them. They are actually more reference sounding than the momentum wireless even though those are good too. The weakest link in the sound of the beats is the treble past 10k. I must add Sennheiser is really bad when it comes to in ears, the ie80 was so overrated and overpriced that Chinese knockoffs today have identical sound. With the momentum wireless they made a lot of progress but apple has a better sound team for in-ears. The momentum have boosted artificial treble that some so called audiophiles tend to like but it’s not flat. Sennheiser can’t be beat when it comes to full size headphones though

  • I can’t hear this video with my LOUIS VUITTON PODS BROKE BOI

  • Poofter

  • I had mine for a month now and when I do cardio with a hoodie I get so sweaty that’s it’s the equivalent of putting it in a bucket of water I’m surprised they still work. Hopefully I won’t have to use the warranty

  • Please review the senheisser momentum true wireless and b&o e8

  • REKT: so 2016

  • I'm very late, but I'd love to see a review of the Sennheiser true wireless!

  • So u need both in for them to keep playing your music?

  • 6:50 lmao

  • I watched a review in which he demonstrated find my iPhone. And accessed EQ.

  • just get a pair of comply ear bud tips and you'll have way better noise isolation if that's what you're looking for] also, usually way more comfy than silicon tips, but alas, to ea their own;]

  • God I was so excited to buy the power beats pro got them and was disappointed with the sound quality :( , back to my AirPods for the mean time until something better actually comes along

  • What are alternatives for a bus and courtyard kind of guy??

  • C’mon now Linus, athletes aren’t nerds.

  • Sauna proof???

  • Are power beats pro unhealthy for you?

  • Tell homeboy to clean out his damn 👂 😂😂😂

  • My favorite part is that after 2 years when the batteries degrade to crap like my AirPods have, the batteries aren’t impossible to replace since they’re only soldered with 2 wires (not as convenient as the Galaxy Buds, but way better than the tick welded and heavily glued in ones of the AirPods) and removing the cover over the main part isn’t too hard. Plus the fact that the cells are 200mWh compared to 93mWh means these will retain a decent capacity for many years and it’ll probably be 5 years before they become annoyingly low in capacity. And with the extra sound quality, these are definitely good and I’ll buy them real soon

  • Deep ear penetration

  • beats x are bomb, if you don't mind the cable

  • 2:41 "She tried" 😲

  • Has ANYONE ever gotten 5 hours out of their AirPods?

    • Slevlonder Co i have never used the airpods for 5 hours without putting them back in the case.

  • Who already got the Powerbeats Pro? If you have: how do they are?

    • They very do are
