If you have conquered the headphones world what else can you do? Well go wireless of course! That’s what Beats have done with the new Powerbeats2 Wireless. It is a Bluetooth earphone with some fanciful LeBron James-branding for pure marketing purposes.
By being wireless these earphones are targeted at the health minded gym goers. Designed with the sweaty ears in mind, it is sweat and water resistant with battery lasting a good 6 hours.
Sound-wise do not expect it to be the last word in smoothness and transparency. You want it to power past loud background music and noise. So punchy mids and thunderous bass is built into its guts. So you are not expected to listen to Beethovan’s Violin Concerto with these.
The Powerbeats 2 Wireless earphones are available in the ubiquitous Beats color schemes of black, red or white. Design is well thought out. The earbuds are connected by a flat cable that rests comfortably behind the neck. Stabilization fins tuck behind the top of the ear for a secure fit, while the lightweight earbuds fit well inside the ear-canal. Pairing the Powerbeats2 with a Samsung Note 3 and an iPhone 5s was done easily with the help of LEDs that indicate pairing status and battery level.
If you are looking for a good companion to go to the gym with it will cost you $199.95.
