Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats In-Ear Headphones Review

I received the Beats Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats Earphones from for purposes of evaluation. Thoughts are my own.

PowerBeats featured

We first saw it on a TV commercial. Lebron James was doing some basketball shooting while listening to music when someone called him up on his phone. He uses the PowerBeats earphones to talk on the phone and listen to music while shooting baskets. My husband got interested in those earphones ever since.

Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats In-Ear Headphones: Ear buds engineered for athletes. After years of breaking ear buds during his workouts, LeBron James teamed up with Dr. Dre in creating Powerbeats earphones: the only earphones designed to deliver premium sound on the court, in the gym, or on the streets.

And that’s what’s so special about the Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats Earphones — they’re made for people who engage in lots of physical activity. It has flexible ear clips that makes sure your earphones stay in place no matter how heavy or big your movements are. It’s sweat-resistant which makes it ideal for any athlete or any active person. And since my husband regularly plays basketball with his friends, this feature is just perfect for him!

What I love most about the PowerBeats is that it doesn’t completely block noise, yet it still gives the great sound quality that one can expect from any Beats product. The PowerBeats still lets in some sound from the surrounding environment for the safety of the user. Since it’s made for athletes and active people who most likely are around other people too, it’s important that the user is not completely “deaf” to his/her surroundings.

PowerBeats 1

Powerbeats earphones are the only Beats by Dr. Dre earbuds that come with 2 (yes, 2!) speakers inside each bud. This allows the user to experience clear highs, deep lows and smooth vocals. And since the PowerBeats comes with 3 pairs of ear-tip fittings, you can choose the one that best fits you so you can feel comfortable and hear comfortably.

Like other earphones, the PowerBeats has a remote control cord where you can adjust your music volume — and even find the song you want to listen to — from the cord. So you don’t have to get your music player out while you’re in motion.

PowerBeats 2

The box includes the Powerbeats by Dr. Dre earphones, an in-line remote & mic cable, a hard case, an extension cable, and three pairs of ear tip fittings.  It’s probably the best earphones I’ve tried so far and I recommend it to anyone who loves listening to music while doing some physical activity!

Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats In-Ear Headphones Review — 22 Comments

  1. My office is quite noisy and I would love to have a pair of this headphones. The fact that you can also answer your phone is a plus.

  2. Thanks for the review. I’ve been wondering if they’r worth all the hype and the cost and it seems like they may be.

  3. I have heard alot of good things anout the beats by Dre but not seen the in ear type. With teens this would be great!

  4. I’ve heard they’re really good but they look uncomfortable to wear with the loops over the ears.

  5. My son has been wanting a pair of these. I told him that when he gets a job, he can get a pair. He said never mind. Merry Christmas.

  6. These sound (ha! ha!) awesome. My husband travels a lot and hates taking off his headphones for take-off and landing – in-ear will work much better for him.

  7. I’ve been told Dr. Dre’s are one of the best headsets you can get. That the sound is wonderful. Really wish I could afford a pair. Thanks for the review.

  8. I heard these weren’t anything special…that it was just a name. Now I think I want to try them. 🙂

  9. I think it’s so cool that James and Dre collaborated on the design of these! Beats are so expensive, but when I see something that is this useful and inventive, I realize you get what you pay for!

  10. Someday, I will own a pair of beats headphones. Thank you so much for such a thorough review, I now know this is the style I will look at in the future.

  11. These Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats In-Ear Headphones sound great, I’d love to have a pair. I have broken so many ear buds, it would be great to finally have a pair that will not break on me. Thank you for sharing this review.

  12. Thanks for the Terrific Review on Beats By Dr. Dre PowerBeats In-Ear Headphones! These headphones sound Fantastic! I can’t believe that they are actually water proof too! I know when they play basketball, they tend to do an awful lot of sweating! I guess this is why they “bill” them as the headphones for people who play sports and/or are physical! Thanks for the information on these Headphones which you shared with all of us! I honestly appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele 🙂

  13. These are so nice. I love how they stay in your ear even during heavy physical activity. It is also nice that you can hear what is going on around you for safety reasons. This has always concerned me when walking, etc. Thank you so much for sharing
