Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless

 

The Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones use the Apple W1 chip for superior Bluetooth performance and deliver a highly sculpted, bass-forward audio experience.

Powerful audio performance for bass lovers. Uses Apple W1 chip for quick pairing, better connectivity with iOS devices. Sweat- and water-resistant design. Very secure fit.

Insanely boosted bass and sculpted highs aren't for anyone seeking an accurate sound signature. Expensive.

Whether you'll enjoy the Powerbeats3 Wireless boils down to whether you like a mega-bass sound signature. Yes, there's plenty of sculpting in the highs to match the booming lows, but this is not a sound signature for those seeking accurate audio—it's...

Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones: Better, but how much better?

 

The Powerbeats3 Wireless adds better battery life and Apple's W1 wireless chip for easy iPhone pairing. But is it otherwise any different from the Powerbeats2?

The Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless offers an improved fit, very good sound for Bluetooth sports headphone, reliable operation, and strong battery life (12 hours), thanks to Apple's W1 chip. Pairing is dead-simple for iOS users and the headphones also work...

Competing models are just as good or better and cost less; not a major upgrade over Powerbeats2 Wireless.

The PowerBeats3 Wireless is a decent step up over its predecessor, but it's no bargain in an increasingly crowded market for wireless sports headphones.

Beats Powerbeats3 In-Ear Headphones Review

 

When Apple made their big iPhone 7 announcement in September, they managed to carve out the smallest sliver of time to introduce three new Beats products — the first set to directly benefit from the Apple's acquisition of Beats. The Solo3 Wireless...

Review: Powerbeats3 with Apple W1 chip are the most reliable Bluetooth headphones we've ever used

 

Bluetooth audio --?especially when exercising --?has always been "good enough,"has always been "good enough," but never great. Apple's W1 chip in its latest headphones lineup changes that, and the proprietary wireless technology steals the show in its...

At $200, the Powerbeats3 are not exactly an impulse buy. In fact, Apple's own forthcoming AirPods (which also include the W1 chip, as well as a number of other advantages) are $40 cheaper.

Powerbeats 3 Wireless review: Beats and bass

 

They're not the best in-ears around from an audio perspective, but the fact they keep going and going, stay securely in your ears and pump the bass

W1 pairing with Apple products is so convenient ; Long battery life ; Secure fit

Bass heavy audio won't be for all ; Not exactly elegant

The Powerbeats 3 aren't the best in-ears around from an audio perspective, but the fact they keep going and going, stay securely in your ears thanks to those ear hooks and pump the bass will be a huge draw to many. As will the W1 chip's pairing...

Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless review

 

Pricey, but still the best sports headphones iPhone 7 owners can get

Apple W1 chipset boosts range and battery life ; Great performance ; Comfortable fit

Micro-USB charging ; You'll need an iPhone 7 to get the best from it

A great pair of sports buds, which really come into their own if you have an iPhone 7

Beats PowerBeats 3 review

 

Fitness-focussed in-ears get the W1 treatment

Great battery life ; Solid bass response ; Good wireless range

A bit bass-heavy ; Fit could be better ; High price

Solidly built and with a great battery life, the PowerBeats 3 get a lot of things right - but at this price point they need to do a little more to make them a worthwhile purchase. They're acceptable all-rounders with great battery life and solid bass...
