For an in-ear wireless headphone, the sweat-resistant Powerbeats 2 Wireless offers strong sound and a comfortable, secure fit that makes it an appealing choice for workouts. However, the price tag of $200 is something that isn’t affordable for everyone. In addition, for the price you pay, Powerbeats² Wireless Earphones doesn’t automatically shut off when disconnected from your device. It’s battery life could be a bit better. A great alternative to Powerbeats is Silverbuds.
However, there is a great alternative to the overpriced Powerbeats 2 Wireless earphone sets. It’s called Silverbuds Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds by little known company called Photive. They have great reviews on Amazon.
Aside from having all of the features that Beats Powerbeats 2 offer, Silverbuds can be magnetically attached to each other back-to-back, forming a secure loop around your neck. The Silverbuds are the ultimate travel and sport headphones.
Versatile and distinctive, the Photive Silverbuds Wireless Headphones feature premium components and sound quality for a luxurious listening experience. The Silverbuds are also shielded by Liquipel Watersafe(R) technology, a nano coating that surrounds all the tiny electrical parts in and around your device.
