Back in April, Apple announced the Powerbeats Pro. This was Apple’s “active” alternative to their AirPods for users who might need a pair of headphones that can withstand some moisture and also potentially sounds better. If you’re looking to get your hands on it, you’ll be pleased to learn that the headphones are now available in additional countries.
The new countries that Apple launched the Powerbeats Pro in include Austria, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates.
The headphones launching in these countries will only be available in black at launch, but the other colours such as ivory, moss, and navy will be launch later this year as well. The headphones had previously launched in the US and Canada earlier this year, and it was kind of limited in availability at that time, but now it looks like it has expanded to more countries.
The Powerbeats Pro is not the cheapest pair of headphones around and is priced at $250. These are more expensive than the AirPods, but if you think you might want better quality audio and also some level of water-resistance for use at the gym, then it could be worth your consideration.
