Design, Features and Specifications
Great and creative design with soft and comfortable earhook that makes it so demanding. Do not worry at all while running fast, hitting the gym or jumping high up and down on your favorite music, this will never slip off your ears. In terms of design, it seems identical to Powerbeats 2 while significant improvements are seen inside the device and we mean the Apple W1 chip. It is very lightweight and portable, weighs only 9.6 ounces. It got the in-line mic, play/pause and volume controls that won’t bother you to touch your phone for those purposes. Get the eartips of your size included in the box and get started.
Okay, now lets talk about colors which make it more attractive and beautiful. It comes in 5 bold colors, black, white, flash blue, shock yellow and the sexy siren red.
The Powerbeats 3 cable management is another best part of the story. Easily adjust it to your size so it does not bother your neck and ears while enjoying your tracks. The cable is super soft and very friendly.
The sound quality is just amazing based on its size though you shouldn’t expect that business-class performance. And we all know the power of beats sound. It is balanced, clear and pure sound. The bass and loudness is also there to enjoy the DJ Snake – Sahara track.
We also managed to test the call quality by calling a friend who has just came to the city for a family visit and it was outstanding. Powerbeats 3 can get very loud too, but at high volume there would be a lot of distortion which would not be pleasant to listen.
The battery life is absolutely great. 12 hours of battery life which never lets you run out of it and miss your music during your workout or other activities. The battery life has a significant improvement comparing to other models. The 5 minutes fast fuel charging gives you 1 hours of playback. Thumbs up!
The comfort level is high. We used it for long hours and never felt any fatigue. But, like always, you might need some short breaks after long listening hours.
The Apple W1 chip is inside the Powerbeats 3 headphone which puts it ahead of pairing and connectivity and of course the battery life. Great and fast connectivity and we liked it. We managed to pair it with Samsung Galaxy S6 edge and the LG V10 and it worked pretty good with both and for the iPhone, It is just a one-touch pairing.
On another positive remark, the wireless connection range was solid and stable. If you pair it with Class 1 Bluetooth devices, you will definitely get wider range beyond standard Bluetooth’s 10-meter or 33-foot range.
The device is weather and sweat resistant. So, don’t worry about it while sweaty and doing a hardcore workout or long distance running in a hot weather.
It is true that Powerbeats 3 is designed solely for fitness and workout while it works beyond that. No matter where you are, you have both sound quality and style with you to enjoy.
The only less point we give is the price tag which is higher comparing to its competing models in the market and also there has been no major upgrade over Powerbeats 2. But, overall this headphone enjoys dynamic and solid sound quality, fabulous design, excellent battery life, classy performance and other remarkable features in its category in the market. Based on users reviews on Amazon, Well, that 200 bucks is somehow too much money to pay for this unless either you are really looking into a specific brand or you have enough money. But, just don’t judge it due to its price, cuz quality comes always before the price.
The magical hook is available on Amazon at $199.95.
