Powerbeats Pro are essentially sportier AirPods, complete with a totally wireless design and Apple's new H1 chip for hands-free "Hey Siri" control. Like the existing Powerbeats3 Wireless, they also feature adjustable ear hooks, four sizes of ear tips, and sweat resistance, in addition to playback controls on each earbud.

The earphones deliver up to nine hours of listening time per charge, and it is possible to get more more than 24 hours of combined playback with the included charging case, according to Apple. There is also a Fast Fuel feature that provides 1.5 hours of playback with just a five-minute charge.

‌Powerbeats Pro‌ will be available in black at launch, followed by ivory, moss, and navy later this summer. They are priced at $249.95 in the United States and $329.95 in Canada on Apple.com, compared to $159 to $199 for the second-generation AirPods and a regular $199.95 for the Powerbeats3 Wireless.

AirPods > PowerBeats Pro

They’re cool tho, but the design of AirPods is more futuristic. I just like the volume buttons, those are cool.
I’d say the AirPods really aren’t that futuristic of a design, as they are more traditional of what the ‘wired EarPods’ were in the past years, minus the wire. As for a more discrete style, I would prefer the AirPods, being I prefer ‘in-ear’ versus over-ear design.

No mention of other countries?
Not sure if they updated the article, but I was very happy to see some pricing outside of the US mentioned, Canadian in this case. Too often these articles are written as if they think all of their readers are American, so this is a nice change to see. But to list every country would be insane.

I wonder if even half the people on here are active enough to even justify the intent of these earphones?

Can't wait! Although sad to hear not all colors will be available at launch...
But will wait anyway for sound quality, but glad we have an option which doesn't look as hideous as Airpods. In my ears, they stick out so you look even more stupid wearing them. In my opinion.
