Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones Now Available From Apple With Early November Delivery

Earlier today, a few users on Reddit in countries outside of the United States noticed that the Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones have been made available to order from Apple.com, outlining arrival windows of as early as next week for users in the areas, and subsequently they have also gone live on the U.S. store.

The U.S. store currently shows delivery estimates of November 1–3, while the United Kingdom and France currently sit at November 2–9 on Apple's website and Australia is a few days later on November 4–8. Otherwise most countries, including Germany, Spain, Italy, and Sweden, all mention vague 1-2 week shipping estimates that fall within the window of the dates for other countries, without being specific.

When the new headphones were announced at Apple's September 7 iPhone event, the company mentioned that the Powerbeats3 and BeatsX would be coming sometime later in the year but didn't say when. The Powerbeats3 also appear to be featured prominently in next week's Target circular, supporting a wide online and retail rollout is imminent in the United States beyond Apple's own sales.

For the BeatsX earphones, most versions of Apple.com still say "coming this fall," while Apple's upcoming AirPods are listed as "available late October" for every country.

Update: This article has been updated to note that Apple has begun taking orders in the United States.

I have the previous version of the PowerBeats, and they're the best I could find for working out, cycling and running. I tried others like the Jawbone, and standard Apple ear buds, but they didn't stay in my ear after sweating.

Also, when I'm outside, I want to be able to hear the outside noise in addition to my music, so I don't end up a statistic on the highway not being able to hear a car horn or something else. So, these work fine for that. Sound is not as great, but that's to be expected when you have these requirements. My main requirement was for them to stay on my ear, and they work fine.

I haven't had an issue with them for the past 1 1/2 years that I've had them. Never broke.

I have an over-the-ear Bose noise-cancelling when I'm at my desk at work.

I wonder if Apple will eventually drop the beats name. They did to the app when they renamed it Apple Music. and given the earpods and airpods, there is a bit of overlap. I would hope they rename all to Apple.
Beats still has tremendous value in the headphone market as a brand. It wouldn't be smart for them to remove that brand. It doesn't mean they won't though. :) In a music app, the name value isn't necessarily the same.

How is this different from Powerbeats 2? more battery life?
The W1 chip enhances the ability to pair to your iCloud account; meaning you don't have to pair separately to your iPhone, iPad, Macbook and Apple Watch, but rather pair once and you're done.

Additionally, W1 handles power management better getting 12 hours of use on the PB3 versus 6 hours on the PB2.

For me, I didn't feel those two features are worth the $120 or so I'd have to pay above what I paid for my PB2's.
