Apple has unveiled four new colours for its Powerbeats Pro headphones. Marketed under the Beats brand, which Apple bought for an eye-watering $ 3 billion back in 2014, these new fitness-focused headphones are much brighter than the current line-up of Black, Ivory, Navy and Moss colours available.
Clearly, Apple doesn’t think these moodier, autumnal colours make sense as people head outside for barbecues and runs in their local park. So, the Cupertino-based company has unleashed a splash of much-needed colour to the wireless earbuds, including Spring Yellow, Cloud Pink, Lava Red, and Glacier Blue.
The four new colours will be available with the same £219.95 price tag as the existing models when the new colours go on-sale on June 9, 2020.
Aside from the bright new colours, Apple hasn’t made any other changes to the Powerbeats Pro in the year since they launched. That means you’ll get the same nine-hour battery life, with the charging carry case topping up listening time to 24-hours total. A five-minute Fast Fuel battery feature will refill your earbuds with an hour and a half of playback time.

Unlike the AirPods Pro and Apple AirPods, the Beats Powerbeats Pro have adjustable hooks that hold the earbud in place in your ear – even during rigorous exercise. If you struggle to get small earbuds to fit in your ears, these hooks are a great compromise between the convenience of true wireless Bluetooth buds and the need to stay in your lugholes. Powered by the same Apple-designed H1 chipset as the AirPods, iPhone owners will be able to pair these wireless earbuds simply by flipping open the carry case near to your smartphone.
