The Beats Powerbeats 3 Wireless Review

Last January 1, you made a resolution to exercise more, to be more active… But as most resolutions go, you found yourself being less and less active and doing more and more … eating… Now that the regret of eating all of those lechon kawali, kalamay and puto bungbong has started to sink in, it’s time to follow up on the New Year’s resolution that you said you were gonna do.

And yes, you need to motivate yourself if you wanna lose those unwanted flab. And to help keep you motivated, let me introduce you to the Dre Beats Powerbeats 3 wireless.

As the name implies, this is a pair of Bluetooth wireless earphones that you can bring to the gym or to your next 5 kilometer run. It is a pair of wireless earphones that are designed to take a beating, so even if you got caught in strong rain, or if you sweat buckets, the thing will survive! Just don’t take it swimming!

This latest Apple earphones (just in case you’ve been living under a rock, Beats is now owned by Apple) has the company-made W1 chip inside. This chip is great at making the earphone efficient, thus, the battery inside the Powerbeats 3 will last 12 hours on a single charge. So yeah, the earphone’s battery will outlast the Taylor Swift album you have on your iPhone. You know you have that... And don’t worry if the battery goes flat. Charge the Powerbeats 3 for 5 minutes and you get 1 hour of battery life. That maybe is enough to outlast your combined cardio and weights sessions.

As to be expected from Beats, the Powerbeats 3 sounds very nice. And since this is a Beats product, bass is on the high end though not as overpowering as Beats from previous lines. The Powerbeats 3 is great for listening to all kinds of music, from Classical music to Heavy Metal. As I’ve said, the lows and bass, as well as the mids are clear, though the highs are on the quiet side. This pair of earphones is even great for watching movies on your other i-devices and computers, even your Apple Watch.

Sound isolation is not as great as other in-ear earphones, so, I’m sad to say that the grunts of the muscled person next to you, the one you are trying to emulate, won’t be as muted.

With the W1 chip, once you paired the Powerbeats 3 to, say, an iPhone, then it will be recognized by all of your Apple devices that are logged in to the same iCloud account. That’s very convenient if you have an iPhone, an Apple Watch, a MacBook Pro,... And fret not if you are an Android phone user, you still can use the Powerbeats 3 but the paring process for each device wouldn’t be as seamless.

The Dre Beats Powerbeats 3 is a must have if you want to make your next gym session a lot more palatable.

It is highly recommended!
