Top2: Beats Powerbeats Pro vs Bose Sport Earbuds

It is well known that Apple already leads the market for True Wireless Studio headphones with its well-known AirPods. But with the arrival of the Powerbeats, both in their standard version and in the Pro version that we present here, they may have decided to leave the AirPods range to diversify their style.

The objective would be to adapt to a more sports-oriented market, where greater support is required on the ear and a somewhat less showy aesthetic, which is less in keeping with its classic line.

Bose has more than 50 years of industry experience behind it and is headquartered in the United States. It was founded by a renowned MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) student who is none other than one of the most important universities globally to create audio components that reflect the highest possible sound quality.

The American brand is present in everything that refers to audio devices and systems, from soundbars, headphones, speakers to the automotive sector incorporating Car-Audio systems, so buying a product from yours is a bet quality assurance.

The Bose Sport Earbuds has earned the position to be among the best wireless headphones of the moment.

Here we have compared the two well know brands Beats Powerbeats Pro vs. Bose Sport Earbuds.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

It is inevitable to wonder how the Powerbeats Pro will compare to the AirPods Pro, given the parent company that brings them together. In the aesthetics section, we can say that Apple, through Beats, has decided to differentiate itself 100% to get a product that fulfills a complementary role to what it had already been offering.

In short, headphones with a simple and extremely comfortable design. The quality of the materials is quite good: a very light and apparently resistant polymer. In this way, an acceptable level of waterproofing is achieved that reaches the IPX4 certification, which would allow us to shower with them, although without excesses.

There is a variety of colors: the classic black and white and other options in blue and green, as is usual in the Apple brand.

Bose Sport Earbuds

One of the most important points of the Bose Sport Earbuds is their design and the comfort they convey. They have been carefully designed to be as ergonomic as possible and maintain a fixation to the ear that allows us to move freely without worries.

The Bose Sport Earbuds are equipped with new StayHear ™ Max silicone tips that are very soft and pleasant to the touch and avoid any discomfort while using them. With this design, we do not have to use an ear hook to keep them firm and therefore avoid falls.

They are much smaller compared to the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds. In addition, the “umbrella” shaped design ensures that not so much pressure is exerted on the ear canal so that we do not feel its presence but maintaining the direct entrance of sound and acoustic isolation to achieve a great sound balance.

With its IPX4 certification against sweat and water, it guarantees that we will be able to use them in any situation while practicing sports, providing extra durability compared to other types of brands that do not incorporate this type of resistance.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

The sound quality is quite good , to a certain degree, they have been able to reduce those bulky and common bass throughout the Beats product line, a characteristic that has been negative and that has generated so much criticism among the most audiophiles.

If we compare them with models such as the Jabra Elite Active 65t , whose sport orientation is equivalent, we can say that Beats has done a great job and the specific differences in sound quality are practically imperceptible.

We must remember that the Powerbeats Pro incorporate the Apple H1 chip , equivalent to the one that the new AirPods 2 already have. This allows us to introduce several innovations and improvements in different aspects of the product. But one feature that we miss is active noise cancellation , which has been completely absent, despite having enough processing power to run it.

Bose Sport Earbuds

It is not surprising to find high-end qualities in each of the components that the BOSE brand incorporates.

Thanks to the active equalization of these headphones, and the transducers it uses, they guarantee high quality and efficiency in the sound it transmits. As a result, we obtain intense bass and obvious highs and mids that adapt to the volume to achieve a balance throughout the sound spectrum for a realistic audio reproduction, avoiding any distortion of the audio track.

When we talk about passive noise cancellation, we are talking about the pads that it incorporates. In this case, it uses soft silicone umbrella-shaped ones that fit perfectly to the ear and allow essential acoustic insulation to reflect the music we are listening to as accurately as possible.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

This section says that the Powerbeats Pro is right in the high range and is a clear reference for setting the upper limit. You have to understand that they are not compact headphones and have enough space to incorporate a slightly larger battery than the conventional one. Therefore, we have been able to exceed 10 hours of autonomy without any problem, something shocking.

We must add that the case is unnecessarily large so that the headphones are comfortably placed. However, this has also allowed them to introduce an above-average battery.

Bose Sport Earbuds

These headphones’ battery has managed to reach the threshold of 5 hours with a playback volume of 80%; these are more than enough to use without worries while practicing sports. However, thanks to the charging case, we can reach double the autonomy, achieving more than 10 hours in less than 2 hours of charging.

If we keep the case connected to the electrical network or a power bank while the headphones remain inside, we can benefit from fast charging, obtaining an autonomy of 2 hours in just 15 minutes.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

We find a Lightning-type connector, which will be useful for those who have several articles of the brand, but a nuisance if you are not faithful.

As with AirPods, we do not have an application to run configurations. Supposedly, it will adjust equalization level to music playing, but this does not mean that it would have been interesting to put some customization.

Bose Sport Earbuds

Bose has avoided placing buttons on the Sport Earbuds and has chosen to implant capacitive sensors to use them through gestures. We can pause and resume the multimedia content, go to the next music track and accept or reject calls with a few simple taps on the headphones.

The case uses USB-C as the only way to charge and has 5 LEDs that indicate the current battery percentage. In addition, the areas where the headphones are placed are magnetized so that they automatically position themselves in the right place.

Conclusion!

Beats Powerbeats Pro

If we want to continue in the Apple product line, with TWS headphones exclusively designed for sports, the Powerbeats Pro is a high-end option in several ways, with a very positive overall quality.

Bose Sport Earbuds

Although the price is quite high, we must not forget the great audio quality and comfort they offer us, which is very important. We have had other types of headphones that, after 20 minutes, generated unbearable discomfort.

It perfectly fulfills its function since other sports headphones have had to resort to the hook or the cable to fix them. The negative point that I have found is the autonomy of the charging case,
