Beats unveiled Powerbeats2, the company first wireless earphone which is inspired and partly designed by Miami Heat player and former MVP LeBron James. And this is the first product launch after officially acquired by the mighty Apple.
Powerbeats2 is the first Bluetooth headset from Beats and is considered as a sequel to the original wired powerbeats which was a huge hit and designed by LeBron James. The headset is designed in such a way that it fits into the head with the adjustable wire and provides a tight fit. The earphones are provide a lightweight feel and their IPX4-water resistance will make sure there is no sweat while running.
The Powerbeats2 can be recharged in 15 minutes and has an LED indicator for battery level. Beats has revamped the Powerbeats2 by removing the heavy-bass tones commonly found in Beats headsets which in turn provides more music clarity. The device can deliver 6 hours of music in a full charge. The left earphone features the micro USB port for charging the device.
The design of the Powerbeats2 is similar to the wired Powerbeats with a flat tangle-free cable that is connected to both the earphones. The volume, tracks and microphone can be controlled by a 3-button in-line remote. Beats by Dre has offered ear hooks for a perfect fit around the ears and silicone buds of various sizes. Each earphone has the Beats logo and the wire has a management clip with the signature logo for adjusting the length of the cable.
Powerbeats2 will be priced at $199,95 and will be available with select retailers and online in July. The Powerbeats2 from Beats by Dre is likely to be the last official device from Beats before Apple takes over.
