Anyone tried the Powerbeats Pros?
Looking to replace my AirPods because the battery life on them has gone to complete shit, like needing a charge after an hour or so in the gym. I’d get another pair but I’ll likely keep running into this issue with them since they aren’t sweat resistant.

People seem to love the Pros...but damn $250 seems steep.

J, if you don't want to spend a bunch of money, look into the Sony Extra Bass ear buds. I got them at Best Buy on sale for $30 but I think they're up to $50. My favorites so far. Much better than the $100 Beats ear buds that I used to have. Great bass response as well as good treble.

Switched from Airpods to the PBP and have no regrets. They were gifted to me for Father's Day so I didn't have to spend the money but IMO they would be worth it.

They take some getting used to with the way they sit in your ear compared to the Airpods, but now I prefer the fit and feel like Airpods want to fall out all the time now.

I still use $10 wired earbuds purchased from a gas station. Does that make me old?

They are worth the price. Great sound (for a wireless bud), great battery life, and they are very comfortable.

I bought a pair a couple of weeks ago and am satisfied with them. Battery life is excellent and they don't tend to fall out like my AirPods have before while working out. They also, to me, sound great.

Just be careful when placing them in the charging case. I always watch the red light to make sure it starts blinking before I walk off.
