Is it fair to call these wireless or somewhat wireless. :)   Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones With Apple’s W1 Chip Now Available for $199.95 Posted by Evan Selleck on Oct 25, 2016 | 0 CommentsMNLX2.jpeg

In early September, when Apple executives took the stage to talk about new products headed to market, the Powerbeats3 wireless headphones only got a brief mention.

Of course, in the shadow of Apple’s truly wireless AirPods, that probably makes sense. Still, if the AirPods didn’t catch your eye but you still want to get headphones with the W1 chip inside, the Powerbeats3 might be the next best bet. As you can see from the picture above, the Powerbeats3 are connected by a single wire to each earbud, but the connection to the iPhone (or whichever phone you have) is handled by Bluetooth.

Apple says the Powerbeats3 can run up to 12 hours on a single charge of the battery, and there’s a quick charge-style function that allows for one hour of playback with just five minutes of charging if you’re in a pinch.

The Powerbeats3 also include four different sizes for the ear tips, so owners can find the perfect fit. The Beats division also tweaked the design of the earbuds themselves, with the goal being better ergonomics and general fit.

The Powerbeats3 earphones are available beginning today from Apple’s online store, with shipping for most models beginning between November 1 and November 3. It’s worth noting that the blue variant appears to e shipping in two to three weeks, however. Each variant is priced at $199.95.

Apple’s website also notes that in-store availability begins on November 3.
