New, yet familiar

The PowerBeats Pro are the latest earphones in the PowerBeats series. Still, although they look a little bit like previous models -hello, PowerBeats 3 (opens in new tab)- they have more in common with the recently released Apple AirPods 2 (opens in new tab) which has similar internals.

Featuring the same H1 chip that's found on the AirPods 2, the PowerBeats Pro support "Hey Siri," so you can use the Apple assistant just by using your voice. This same chip makes it quicker to connect your earphones to other active Apple devices such as an iPhone, Apple Watch, or Mac. With Bluetooth, you can connect the earphones to other devices too.

Looking for more? The PowerBeats Pro offers nine hours of enjoyment between charges. To recharge, use the included case that holds 24 hours of combined playback.

About those ear tips

Silicone has long been used as a material for ear tips, including past PowerBeats models. Tips made from silicone are heat-resistant and rubber-like and offer a snug fit when in the ear. The PowerBeats Pro comes with four sets of silicone ear tips, which means you should be able to find the perfect fit. You can buy extra silicone ear tips through sites like Amazon. The tips are easy and inexpensive to replace. The ear tips work with the PowerBeats Pro's adjustable, secure-fit earhooks.

To extend the life of your ear tips, be sure to clean them regularly. Always remove the eartip from the earpiece before cleaning with warm water and mild soap. Use a damp cloth to remove dirt and earwax from the eartips. Don't use harsh cleaning products. Rinse completely and dry before placing them back on your earphones. Gently push the eartips back onto the eartubes.
