Summer’s in full swing and so you’re looking to upgrade your tunes on bike rides and hikes, we’ve got two great true wireless options to choose from: Best Buy is selling a pair of Geek Squad Certified Refurbished AirPods Pro for $195Remove non-product link and Newegg has a pair of brand new Powerbeats Pro for $180Remove non-product link, both among the best prices we’ve ever tracked.
While both of these earphones are completely free of wires with great sound and all-day battery life, they look and act very differently. AirPods Pro are small white buds while Powerbeats Pro are larger over-ear headphones. The AirPods pro bring noise-canceling but the Powerbeats Pro headphones don’t. They both bring on-ear controls and sweat resistance for working out as well as Hey Siri support.
While the Powerbeats Pro buds are brand new, the AirPods Pro are certified refurbished by Best Buy’s Geek Squad and promise to be “thoroughly, painstakingly and lovingly tested, so you can be sure that your device will work right, right away.” They come with a standard 90-day Best Buy warranty and should be eligible for AppleCare within the first 30 days by calling the Apple Store and providing your serial number. Your mileage may vary, though, depending on how long Best Buy has been holding onto them after they were returned.
