  • 2019's iPhones could wireless charge AirPods

What's interesting is that the PowerBeats Pro uses Apple's new H1 chip which is also found on the latest 2nd gen AirPods.

Where AirPods are in-the-ear, sorta, in that they fit into the shallow part of your ear without going spelunking the way truly in-ear headphones do, PowerBeats Pro go both further in... and all the way around.

Powerbeats Pro feature an ambidextrous design with physical volume and track control buttons on each earbud, giving users full control over music and phone calls regardless of which hand they prefer to use.

The Powerbeats Pro do not feature a wire of any kind and just like the AirPods, you will be able to slip each earbud into place comfortably. And while the two headphones bear some similarities, the pricier Powerbeats are a more premium choice that have more to offer when it comes to custom fitting options and audio quality. There are four sizes of headphone tips to fit a range of ear sizes, and the earhook that wraps around your ear is adjustable.

I recently spent some time trying the Powerbeats Pro with some folks at Beats.

The new Powerbeats Pro are 23 percent smaller and 17 percent lighter versus the older version, plus sweat and water resistant.

So if your AirPods run out of charge on a long journey, for example, or a friend's iPhone is out of juice, you will able to give them a quick power boost.

Though iPhones have supported wireless charging since the iPhone 8, bilateral wireless charging would be completely new for Apple.

In addition, Galaxy S10 is capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously, while connected to a regular charger, enabling you to leave your second charger at home while on a trip. You can tell as soon as you put them on, too. The Powerbeats Pro will come in four colours: black, white, navy, and moss.

UPDATE: Apple.ca lists the price at $329.95. Plus, AirPods are available now and Powerbeats Pro won't be available out until May.

If you're wondering exactly how the Powerbeats Pro aim to "revolutionize your workouts", the answer is very simple - with a clean, straightforward, lightweight design and a new industry standard in ergonomics.
