Part of the Beats by Dr Dre family of products, Powerbeats2 connects to your device via Bluetooth to deliver high quality audio output.

The Powerbeats2 have an over-the-ear design for a comfortable fit so your ear canals are not taking the full weight of the earphones.

This form factor also helps keep the headphones in place so they are not going to fall out while you’re exercising.

The Powerbeats2 wireless headphones come with four sets of silicon tips in multiple sizes to ensure a perfect fit.

Onboard is dual driver acoustics so the Powerbeats2 produce Dr Dre’s signature high quality audio.

The result is a solid mix of bass and excellent mid and high level reproduction.

In the past we’ve found Dr Dre’s headphones to be heavy on the bass to appeal to the youth market but the Powerbeats2 have a fine balance.

Wireless freedom makes the Powerbeats2 even easier to use on the go including the gym and on a run or walk.

With that in mind, the headphones are built to handle sweat and water with an IPX4 rating.

The earpieces are connected with a tangle-free flat cable where you will also find a remote to control your music and the volume.
