However, these new Powerbeats Pro additionally handed via the FCC, which signifies there may need been a slight tweak to the internals of the earbuds someplace. But none of the specs for these new colors have modified. They nonetheless provide:

I nonetheless use my Powerbeats Pro typically, however I do have a pair gripes. First, I’ve had one of the earbuds fail to cost greater than as soon as when positioned contained in the case. Cleaning the contacts will help alleviate this downside, however it nonetheless occurs. And I additionally run into the irritating problem the place just one earbud turns on whenever you put them in your ears, requiring you to reseat the Powerbeats Pro within the case and take them out once more.
Like earlier than, the (very giant) charging case is black regardless of which shade of the earbuds you get. It fees through Lightning connector; sadly, Beats has but to supply a wi-fi charging answer for the Powerbeats Pro.
