Beats By Dre announced the launch of the earphones via Instagram on April 4 (Singapore time).

Speculation has been rife about the impending release of the Apple Powerbeats Pro in the past few weeks. But now we have the official word from Apple and Beats themselves. The all-new “totally wireless” earphones have been added to Apple’s online website but will only be available in May. You may want to hold off on getting the AirPods 2. Why? Because the Apple Powerbeats Pro seems like a bigger, better, and more stylish version of the AirPods – albeit slightly pricier too. Here’s everything you need to know.

It comes in four colors

Choice is freedom and you’ll be glad to know that the new Apple Powerbeats Pro gives us just that. Among the four different color options are black, navy, moss, and ivory. Our top pick would have to be the sleek black iteration – especially since the latest AirPods 2 don’t come in that highly anticipated color.

Sounds like a complete upgrade

Beats and Apple have revamped the overall sound quality of the new earphones. You can expect powerful, balanced audio this time around, that, according to Apple, “delivers pure sound reproduction, enhanced clarity and improved dynamic range”. Well, it’s branded “pro” for a reason.

It evens fits like a pro

If you go heavy on your workouts, the sweat and water-resistant Apple Powerbeats Pro is perfect for you. Besides the complete lack of (invasive) wires, the earphones are designed for different ear shapes. The secure-fit earhooks can be adjusted to stay perfectly in place courtesy of the four ear-tip sizes.

Perhaps all you need in a true wireless earphone

Just like the AirPods, the Powerbeats Pro also features the new Apple H1 chip which allows for faster connectivity and the convenient “Hey Siri” function. The biggest draw of all is perhaps the impressive nine hours of continuous listening. But you’ll get more than 24 hours of playback with the exquisite black charging case. What’s not to love?

While you can only view the S$328 Apple Powerbeats Pro on apple.com/sg for now, we think it’s going to be hit when it finally arrives come May.

Will the Powerbeats Pro prove to be the best true wireless earphone? We want to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
