Beats By Dre Powerbeats 3 | The Perfect Gym Partner
I spend about 5 minutes a day trying to figure out the perfect song to start my workout with. Sometimes I feel like a hearing some tracks by Rihanna and then other times some hip-hop music to gets me AMPed up. Music essentially powers me through every workout. I feel inadequate when I forget my headphones at home. Music is LIFE!
When I started working out, I relied heavily on my standard-issue Apple headphones that come with every iPhone. They're fine to use for workouts but I wanted something with more bass and flexibility. Beats By Dre came on the scene and introduced a new era of headphones. The amount of bass in the headphones allows users to get the full intend experience of hip-hop and rap music. The audio quality is 10 times better as well. The normal distortion that you get from inexpensive headphones is non-existent in the Beat By Dre models.
What I like about the Powerbeats 3 is that there are no cords to get in your way during your workout. I can leave my phone on the floor and focus on my workout. The Powerbeats come in 5 different colors and provides great sound quality. I upgraded from the Powerbeats 2 model after I accidently cracked the earphones in my pocket. The battery life is definitely an upgrade from the previous model. I think the sound quality is on par with the previous model. The Powerbeats 2 may have provided a little louder audio. I would recommend the Powerbeats 3 for anyone who likes to workout or just need a pair of good headphones for your daily commute. They are priced at $199.95, but for something you use every day, I think it's worth the investment.
Case Design: The new holding case for the Powerbeats 3 is a little flimsy and seems prone to possible damage of your headphones while being stored.
Volume: The max volume on the headphones could be better. Especially for those moments when you want to completely immerse yourself in your workout.
Evolution: I hope to see the Powerbeats 4 go completely wireless and follow the Apple Airpods model. That will give users, even more freedom in the gym without strings.
