Just like AirPods, Powerbeats are cable-free, meaning there's no wire connecting the left and right buds.
It's believed that a thinner OLED screen laminate will allow for extra battery space without adding to the overall thickness of the new handsets. Here's everything you need to know (so far).
There's a lot of difference between the Powerbeats Pro and the AirPods 2. If you want AirPods-like earbuds for working out, these are the flawless alternative. The Powerbeats Pro work as normal Bluetooth headphones with Android devices. They also play and pause automatically when inserted or removed, thanks to optical sensors.
AirPods 2 noticeably cuts down the time it takes for the earbuds to disconnect from one and reconnect to the other. Similarly, they switch off when you place them back inside.

That's the quick takeaway, in general. That's not with the case. If true, this is impressive, especially because the wireless earbuds are slated to last up to nine hours of use.
For a pair of earbuds that cost half the price of big name brands, the Brio surprisingly delivers a litany of notable features packed in a sleek package.
We'd love them to fit more people better and to have some physical controls, but Apple is sticking to its guns.
