Are you thinking about getting the Powerbeats 3 Wireless Headphones? It’s got 3.5 stars on Amazon and some people have said they loved them and some people said they hated them. So today we’re going to find out if the Powerbeats 3 is worth the money or not.
Hey what is going on guys, it’s Sujandar here from Premium Earphones. We’re going to be doing an in-depth review. We will be going over the design, the features, the sound quality and we’ll also go over the pros and cons of the Powerbeats 3 Wireless Headphone. I’ll also be going over who the headphones are exactly for in my opinion.
The first thing I’m going to go over is the design. All the plastic construction feels solid and the adjustable ear hooks helps keep the earphones in your ears during running, weightlifting or any kind of vigorous movements you can name.
They come with four silicon tips in general. You can get these headphones in Black, White, Defiant Red & Black, Pop Indigo, Pop Magenta, Pop Blue and Pop Violet. These are in-ear headphones and inside we have the indicators to show left and right. On the left if you turn the power button on you can see the light starts indicating and underneath it, you have a USB port where you will be charging your headphone. You can just attach it from your headphones into a computer, an outlet or any other power source.
There’s nothing different on the right one, you just have the simple earbud but, on both headphones you have microphones which allows you to talk over the phone. As we move down there are the controllers which will be on the left side of the headphones, so you can control it by either increasing or decreasing the volume.
In the middle you have the play and pause button, and of course you will also be able to take calls. If you simply click the button to answer a call it will do that for you and then at the end it has a little collar where you can adjust the headphones and it will allow it to stay on your back. So, wherever you’re moving, those collars will keep it secure. One of the disadvantage of this headphone is that it starts to irritate your ear canal if you wear these for a long time, especially if you’re not doing anything, then it’s going to feel itchy but if you’re working out then it’s not going to annoy you that much because you will not be focusing on that. Now we’re going to move over to the features.
The first feature that we can’t overlook is the Apple W1 chip. If you’re an Apple user if you have an iPhone, then these will pair up conveniently well but if your someone with an Android you are not going to get the same benefits as you would if you were an Apple user. It still works great but you won’t get the same benefits relatively to apple.
These are Bluetooth wireless. So, you don’t have any wires going into your phone you simply just have the headphones by itself. It just goes around your ears and you connect it via Bluetooth.
The battery life is claimed at 12 hours, which is long for in-ear headphones. I have tested them, and it pretty much stays up to it’s statement. Powerbeats 3 also have Quick Charge which is a bonus because if they do die out quick, you can charge them for 5 minutes and it will last you to like up to an hour.
And the last feature is they are sweat resistant, and this is more of a design aspect, but they do prevent any kind of water or precipitation. As I’ve tried these in the gym, it has worked well for me. I’ve also read reviews on Amazon then they’ve said that it tends to slip out of your ear canal if you get too sweaty. If you are someone who’s going to be doing heavy workouts and sweat a lot just keep this in mind.
So immediately the advantages for having these headphones, if you’re an Apple user is it’s going to have a strong connectivity when it comes to Bluetooth and you’ll be able to get all the benefits of the sound quality and instantaneous pairing and it also delivers a decent performance for android users too. Now I’m going to move over to sound quality.
Powerbeats 3 Wireless headphone have a good sound quality. It is good enough to compete with any other sports Bluetooth earphones category now. There’s plenty of fine detail in the notable lack of distortion. First up the bass in my opinion is where these headphones shine. The Powerbeats 3 is known for that. It doesn’t kick as well as I’d like it to, it’s not something that I would personally go for, but these are great for someone who just enjoy clean, reasonable bass.
The highs are quite clean, the vocals are also pretty good. So, when it comes to these headphones, I think the bass shines the most in my opinion. Even if the volume is full, the Powerbeats 3 still holds the bass well. The microphone performs well, especially for active users it’s capable of maintaining a phone conversation while out on a bike and it does an excellent job of shielding your voice from wind and background noise. The audio quality is much improved than the Powerbeats 2.
Moreover, one of the qualities that the Powerbeats 3 has is the openness of its soundstage. Sound from left and right audio channels have tons of audio separation and direction of sound from the front of you to behind you. They are very much distinguishable. It’s very impressive for a pair of sport earphones
- Powerbeats 3 Wireless headphones have powerful audio performance for all the bass lovers out there
- It has one of the best battery life
- The high boosted bass and the sculpted high are not for anyone who is looking for an accurate sound signature
- They could have made the fit better
To conclude, an average consumer standpoint Powerbeats 3 is still a quality pair of earphones. The battery life is one of the best of all. The wireless range is possibly the best and they will stay on most people’s head perfectly fine. Enjoy the Powerbeats 3 Headphones.
