Beats By Dre Reveals New Powerbeats Earbuds

Following a series of rumours and leaks, Beats by Dre has officially unveiled the fourth generation of Powerbeats earbuds. Designed for sports, fitness and general outdoors use, the Apple-owned brand is ditching the numbering and simply calling the new earbuds Powerbeats.

For those looking to snag a pair, Powerbeats arrived March 18, but with Apple temporarily closing its stores as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, it might be worth chasing them up online. Powerbeats are priced at AUD $219.95.

The new Powerbeats have been upgraded with 15-hours battery life and like the JBL’s True Wireless Earbuds Take Studio Sound On the Go, are now rated IPX4 for sweat and water resistance. With the Fast Fuel function, a 5-minute charge gives up to an additional 1.5 hours of playback when the battery is low.

The earbuds feature Apple’s H1 chip which enables quick pairing and hands-free “Hey Siri” voice controls. Performance-wise, Beats says the new buds offer similar quality sound to the Pro earbuds. The power button and volume controls are located on the left earbud while the multi-function “b” button is found on the right earbud.

With a streamlined, round cable engineered to minimise friction, and secure-fit ear hooks for added stability, these earbuds are said to feel light and comfortable, even after hours of wear.

Your colour options are black, white and red. The earbuds charge via a USB-A to Lightning cable which comes in the box, along with a soft carrying pouch for added protection.

At AUD $219.95, these sleek earbuds are a more affordable alternative to the Powerbeats Pro and offer better battery life than the Pro and previous Powerbeats 3. You can find out more via the official page linked below and get in contact with support if need be.
