Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless review

 

Iconic Beats design, now for the workout crowd

Minimalistic design ; Universal controls ; Powers workouts with tons of bass

Expensive ; Comfort issues ; Sound lacks fidelity

Beats will please users looking for a flashy set of in-ear headphones that provide booming sound and a handful of features. But for value-centric shoppers, there are many options that outperform for less cash. It should be no surprise that the Beats...

Powerbeats2 Wireless (review): No bargain, but still among the top wireless sports earphones

 

It's a bit overpriced, but the sweat-resistant Powerbeats2 Wireless is both comfortable to wear and sounds good, particularly for a Bluetooth headphone.

For an in-ear wireless headphone, the sweat-resistant Powerbeats 2 Wireless offers strong sound and a comfortable, secure fit that makes it an appealing choice for workouts.

Doesn't automatically shut off when disconnected from your device; fairly expensive; battery life could be a bit better.

While it's a bit overpriced, the Beats Powerbeats 2 Wireless is among the best wireless sports earphones.

They might be more popular than lemons on pancake day, but we've never really been convinced by Beats by Dre headphones, so we weren't sure what to expect with the PowerBeats 2 model. These headphones are in-ear, and feature an in-line remote to...

Like the original Powerbeats, the Beats by Dre Powerbeats 2 are in-ear headphones that use a wireless Bluetooth connection instead of a cable, so that you don't need to be physically connected to your smartphone or tablet if you want to play music....

Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless

 

The Beats Powerbeats2 is a gym-focused Bluetooth earphone pair with a frequency response that will only appeal to extreme bass fans.

Incredibly powerful, robust bass response. Does not distort even at top volumes. Sweat-and water-resistant. Multiple eartip options.

Overpriced. Audio balance is completely shifted to the bass realm, with very little high-mid presence.

I won't speculate on whether the subtle LeBron James branding of this particular product (on the Beats website and in commercials) has anything to do with the price, but this is not what a $200 pair of earphones should sound like. The Powerbeats2...

Beats Powerbeats 2 / Powerbeats2 Wireless HEADPHONES

 

The Beats Powerbeats 2 Wireless are stable headphones great for the gym but disappoint with their sound quality. They're comfortable and are easy to carry around. Unfortunately, they have a skewed audio reproduction and don't block noise well, which is...

Comfortable and stable fit. ; Minimal leakage.

Poor noise isolation. ; Uneven bass-heavy sound.
