    The new 2nd gen Airpods were impressive, but Apple's new Powerbeats Pro are even MORE impressive, especially for active users. But are they good enough to impress non-athletes?

      I wish people would stop complaining about products that were clearly not designed for them. Beats by Dre (meaning Dr Dre) are hip hop headphones. Is that not already obvious? Since when do Beats by Dre headphones _not_ have a lot of bass? Just because Apple bought the company doesn’t mean you hypebeasts can gentrify the product. It just means they have the H1 chip and are more compatible with Apple products. Whooptie fucking do. Be satisfied with your little hairdryer looking AirPods and stop complaining about what we use with our phones.

        You should fire Riley as he failed you for this video just as you failed yourself as a man or a boy. And you're not that clever..

                      I like ur data. However ur voice texture and volume hurts my ears a lot. Which is why I can't watch ur videos without quitting it mid way and which is why I can't subscribe to ur channel.
                      Hope u can use sw to make it more pleasant if not then just make it bareable.

                          Yeah.... I'm gonna hold on to my 20$ AirDots thank you very much. They're amazing and I don't need much more than that. For 400$ I can buy a new phone , wireless buds AND go out for a nice dinner with the Laaady. You can keep your pro beats .

                            @Boi ok what? If you're asking me if the wireless buds are ok... they're amazing. For 20$ anyone can buy them and judge for themselves.

                                Fantastic lighting and background. I love how you guys focus on the little things to give your videos just that extra little quality to them.

                                    Beats brand is a result of athletes' marketing. Way over priced.

                                      Funny I am listening to this with my Powerbeats Pro. 🤷🏼‍♂️ Can say these are amazing and have tried both AirPods and these and will recommend these over AirPods any day. AirPods allow for outside sound to sneak through whereas these don’t. Overall, don’t regret my purchase at all.
