          Def prefer the Powerbeats pro, airpods pro annoy me and they don’t stay in your ear well at all and disconnect to much.

            They are both great but the airpods feel better for me because I have weird and sensitive ears and the hook on the PBP annoy me

              The noise cancellation is like 60-70%, you could still hear stuff in the background. Bose QC 20 is far best noice cancellation for me.

                Xracess if they were selling the new AirPods Pro for 50 used, you’d buy them and buy a new set of ear tips right?

                @Jacob Simpson yeah your right, but the Bose QC20 you can find them slightly used for less than 100. They are retailed for 250 still for a reason lol. Been YEARS since Bose released those

                Kanji Santos yeah but paying $250 for wired earbuds doesn’t sound like a good deal

              I tried both for two weeks. In the end, I decided I like the Powerbeats Pro’s better.

                The volume control was a bothering so much on the air pods pro. The only reason I got them was the find my air pods mode since I lost my Powerbeats pro so that swayed me to the AirPods pro

                But I’d say the best feature on the Powerbeats is that you can adjust the volume with buttons on the actual earphones. Most truly wireless earbuds can’t do this

                  siorai1 airpods pro, louder volume and also with the noise cancellation it makes them complete, powerbeats pro have slightly better bass and stay in better, but airpods pro blow them away because i feel as though u can use airpods pro in more environments then the power beats

                  I travel on European airlines that have strict carry on bag weight limits. The Airpod Pros cut a fair amount of weight when you consider the headphones and case of the Bose QC 35s. I was in a pub with the AirPod Pros in transparency mode ordering food and drinks with a lot of background music. When I switched back to ANC mode the difference was scary - in a good way. The whole room dropped away instantly with a faint hint of sound. A welcome addition to my tech bag for 2019.

                          I have both. They’re both equally great for different reasons. Sound quality is superb on both, with the added features on the AirPods Pro. The Powerbeats Pro is perfect for active use, such as running and working out.

                            Please don’t listen to this man regarding sound quality. I owned both and returned the APP. PBP have noticeably better sound quality overall. This applies to a variety of genres of music including pop, rap, rock, and classical. The bass alone is miles better on the PBP. I also have zero issues wearing the ear hooks for long periods of time.

                            Where the APP shine is the tiny carrying case, wireless charging, and ANC/Transparency. Otherwise PBP have superior sound, battery life on a single charge, and volume controls.

                              carlovespa yeah Powerbeats pro have a better sound, but you have to have them fit correct. If not they have no bass. I use mine to work out and my Apple AirPods pro for at work or lounging around. The noise cancelling isn’t that good, I have the Amazon echo buds and those have better noise cancelling. I wonder if it’s because they are not so plasticey lol is that a word? But they are both good headphones just the Powerbeats pro are awesome for the gym.

                            Why does your audio quality get bad after your intro? When you're off camera talking it sounds better than when you are on camera it almost sounds like you're recording the off camera stuff right next to your phone and you're recording that on camera stuff with your phone and not getting equal audio I would recommend in your edits going to the audio volume and trying to make the whole video equal quality thanks for the review though

                              For true hearing protection (such as when on a riding lawnmower), IsoTunes Pro are pretty awesome.

                                I have both and hate both.. Powerbeats pro sound really thin and low.. AirPod pros give me a head with that suction noise cancellation.. I should've just stayed with my AirPods 1and 2's...

                                    Airpod's Pro's are mid heavy, there is no such thing as ear fatigue with Powerbeats pro's, the microphone quality is better on Powerbeats Pro's, the superior sound quality goes to the Powerbeats Pro's, the better battery life goes to the Powerbeats Pro's, you don't need noise cancellation with power beats Pro's and finally you don't need to make a purchase justification video with the Power beats Pro's.

                                      I agree with everything but they mic quality. When it comes to making phone calls the air pods sound better to me. I love both of them.

                                      This was not a great review it was a biased review, you can tell this when the reviewers star out by making things up to put the newest product over, like ear fatigue, size, weight, instead of talking about things that matter like call quality or sound quality, battery life.

                                    Am I the only one that thinks design wise this is a huge step backwards? The flexible white doesn't even seem to match the solid part in some videos. Please make a solid version more sweat resistant. IMHO the great thing about AirPods is that they did NOT have the condom feeling ... and for f... sake give me a black version and accept the slight branding downside ... thats just paranoid and greedy thinking.

                                        AirPods Pro silicon tips have mesh to protect the speakers grills from clogging with wax . Battery is larger and located in the body not the stem like rice grain size battery in AirPods. That makes them a bit more cold resistant in cold climate outside. I prefer the sound of them with ANC OFF as this gives more bass and is more dynamic when running. Therefore I configured the haptic button to toggle OFF / Transparency - that is very good when talking to other people. To activate ANC I use AppleWatch or ask Siri. I also use for example: "Hey Siri Volume 35%" - and it mostly works! ANC is pretty decent for low frequencies that are most annoying as airplanes, aircon but also cut away the noise of car engines - so be careful in the city. However proper over ear like Sony WH100M3 are better for ANC. I noticed that they can hurt external ear lower part when pressed downwards as when wearing a warm hat with head lamp that is pushing them down - the body of AirPods Pro is larger than AirPods. I am not a big fan of the in-ear headphones but so far AirPods Pro are fine and with the new battery type and placement I hope would last longer then my 1st gen AirPods.

                                          studivan apparently, you can’t read; he said the AirPods Pro have THEIR OWN mesh to protect the speaker grills, which already have their own mesh seal. This would provide a double coating.

                                          All in ear earbuds have mesh to protect the speaker grills from clogging with wax and the battery is not larger than the battery in Powerbeats pro's but to justify your purchase that does sound good though.

                                        I have both the PowerBeats Pro and the AirPods Pro. I’m one of those people who has never been able to use the original style AirPods, but the Pros do stay in my ear fairly well. That said, they actually do hurt my ears a bit after a while. Not so much the ear canal, but the outer ear. So, I use the AirPods Pro during commutes on public transport or when my neighbours are being inconsiderate you-know-whats, but I use the PowerBeats Pro the rest of the time, because they are just a little more comfortable and feel a bit more secure in my ears. Also, when going for walks/runs I prefer the PowerBeats Pro. In that situation I don’t need the noise cancellation, because I like to have more of an awareness of traffic etc, and as they stay more securely in my ears it makes sense. Also, a lot more convenient to adjust the volume on the actual earbuds, rather than having to take out my phone or use my watch in those situations. On the tube commute I don’t mind using my watch to adjust volume for the AirPods Pro, but while running it’s just more intuitive to change it on my earbuds. The latency when watching video is excellent in both earbuds, when using Apple devices. Haven’t tested on non Apple devices, so don’t know about latency with those. (I have tried Jabra Elite 65t and Sennheiser Momentum’s with my Apple devices, and both went back to the shop due to terrible connection and latency issues.) Overall, sound quality between AirPods Pro and PowerBeats Pro is comparable for me; I’m not into super base heavy music - more of a singer/songwriter kind of person, and audiobooks sound great on both. Hope this helps someone out there. Have a lovely day!

                                          I have owned both two, but sent the AirPods Pro's back, yes they are better than regular AirPods, but if you had to buy one pair earbuds the Powerbeats Pro's beat out the AirPods Pro's in battery life, bass, looks, control, call quality and overall sound quality.

                                        People disappointed battery didn’t increase... what did you expect? They made them smaller, added ANC and other features - pretty difficult to increase battery.

                                        AirPods pro are suppose to arrive tomorrow.... (I have power beats pro and AirPods 2 but the convenience and form factor of the AirPods are a win for me)

                                          Apple headphones never seem to stay in my ear. I realize this is a slightly different design but I like the hooks the Powerbeats Pro offer and the much longer battery life over the AirPods Pro. I’m also a little tired of white products it seems kind of last decade to me.

                                            ANE Give it some time and it will. It’s not about the size of the tip but rather the hook or some other parts of the earphone that hurts your ear. It gives you ear fatigue after wearing it for more than 2 hours.

                                            Amanda Cerny I think that depends of the size of your ear because I have the Powerbeats pro and my ears have a medium-small size and actually they doesn’t hurt at all.

                                            But after wearing the Powerbeats, your ears hurt because of the feel of the ear pods. In AirPods pro, that’s not the case. And it fits better now because of the in ear design

                                            The AirPods pro and Powerbeats pro have the same in ear design now. And the Powerbeats pro give pain when you wear them for a long time. The AirPods pro’s tips are identical to the Powerbeats pro so AirPods Pro won’t fall out.

                                            You should prefer Powerbeats pro's because they are actually better in every way and you should expect the YouTube videos saying AirPods Pro's are better because they are the newest apple product and people have to justify spending $250.00 on the new earbuds.

                                          The main issue I had with the AirPods Pro (I tested at Apple Pasadena last Fri) was the mic is muffled which makes it useless to me. That would be poor sounding client call conversations on what they'd be hearing, or verbal text messages. Really surprised I haven't seen more reviews mentioning this. They still need a black option so they are more discreet. Do the Powerbeats have a mic?

                                            Briefly testing out a demo model at an Apple store is hardly a rigorous test. From basically all the reviews on the AirPods Pro that I’ve seen people say the mic sounds great.

                                            The powerbeats pro also have a mic and if your client calls are normally longer than 4 hours you should go with the powerbeats pro for the longer battery life.

                                                I suppose the upside with the PowerBeats Pro is that they do use a universal stem for fitting eartips on, so you could have just popped a different tip on them (assuming you liked them apart from the allergy issue). Also, it is possible to get Comply or Comply style foam tips for the PowerBeats Pro, which I think a lot of people like. This isn’t available for the AirPods Pro, owing to the different way the eartips connect to the body of the earbuds. That said, it’ll be a matter of time before there are third party knock-offs available, I’m sure.

                                              What about microphone quality? Do both products have good mics?

                                                you can consider powerbeats pro as a non-microphone product.

                                                TF? Why are so many people shitting on the AirPods mic? It’s better than the rest of the truly wireless headphones out there.

                                              You should have compared the noise cancellation. That's all I'm interested in.

                                                One pair doesn't need the noise cancellation, because all you hear is the music anyway.

                                                I’ve tried both and think the earphone clamp creates more isolation than the ANC on the airpods, basically a gimmick for it to sell

                                                Paul Appleby well, one pair literally comes with noise cancellation and the other doesn’t.
