Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless Ear-Hook Headphones is powerful and dynamic headphones that connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone for listening to music, audiobooks, videos and more. It comes from Beat’s PowerBeats lineup, which features earphones designed for the nimble and active.
Since it’s wireless, there will be no more earphone cords getting in the way. This makes it a perfect music companion while working out or doing other activities. It has ear hooks – a rubbery loop that goes over the top of the ear to help keep it in place while you do your extensive workouts. If you wear glasses, you must first take them off and put them back on after wearing these Beats earphones. For the overall appearance, it is sporty and stays on well, keeping a good, snug and sound-insulating fit.
The cable that connects the two earbuds hangs down the neck and can be used to drape around the shoulders when not in use. The adjustable cable clip can set the cable on a comfortable length. It has the understated simplicity of Beat’s signature black matte finish and flat cable. It’s designed to be sweat- and water-resistant. This version comes in defiant black-red, but this model is also available in black and green.
When it comes to quality, this set of earphones produces great sounds. These wireless earphones sound better than the regular quality earbuds that come with newer iterations of the iPhone. The audio plays loud and lively music well, especially those with strong bass kicks like dance and electropop music. It suits its purpose just right since it is designed as a headphone for working out.
To pair the earbuds with your phone, unlock the phone and turn on Bluetooth. Hold the earbuds close to the phone and hold the power button (on the left earbud) for a few seconds until a notification pops on your phone asking you to connect the earbuds. Setup of this pair of earbuds is a breeze for Apple smartphones, but it also works fine for Android phones. The PowerBeats 3 is equipped with Apple’s W1 chip, which brings it a longer-reaching connection.
When fully charged, the earbuds can last up to 12 hours. When the earbuds are at low battery, the USB charger can be plugged into an outlet or connected to an adaptor to charge. According to Beats, its Fast Fuel charge means that a 5-minute charge can last for an hour of playing.
The controls are very responsive and user-friendly. These can be found on a small, plastic control panel under the left earbud. These controls can start, stop, skip, rewind, and adjust the volume of the audio or video you are listening to. To pause, press the middle button once and press it again to resume. To skip to the next song or track, press the button twice; and to skip forward, you have to press it thrice. To adjust volume, press the right button to increase it, and press the left to decrease.

Besides the wireless earbuds, the kit includes a sleek carry case, four extra earbuds of different sizes, and a USB charging cable. The four extra earbuds help users make sure they get just the right fit, so the headphones won’t fall off your ears or hurt your ear canal.
