The earphone nests comfortably in the concha bowl of the ear with an off-axis nozzle and that provides a complete fit.
5) Automatic Pause And Resume:
There is a system through which the music will get paused when you remove one or both earbuds and then start playing again once they’re back in.

Both the earbuds connect to your device independently just like the AirPods. There is a linked system where only one of them is connected to your phone, and the other is connected to the first earbud.
Apart from the above features, the voice quality is absolutely fine and also it works perfectly well with Android too.

7) There Is No LED Light To Show Earbud Charge Status:
There is no LED light to show earbud charge status in this model. Apple’s AirPods also lack this feature but some true wireless earbuds have separate LEDs for reflecting how much charge the case and earbuds each have.
The tiny circular LED on the front of the model’s case is only meant to show its own remaining battery. For checking the battery level for the earbuds, it requires to flip the case open near your iPhone.
A menu will open up for showing the charge status for the earbuds and the case. The battery percentage will also be shown whenever you are using them in the iOS battery widget.
8) Large Charging Case:
It is clear that Beats expects the users to keep the charging case for the model in a bag, whether it is a carry bag or gym bag or whatever. But the problem is the large size of the case. The charging case is larger than its competition. You could squeeze the case in the pocket but it is not going to be comfortable for sure.
9) No Wireless Charging:
One obvious thing that separates the new AirPods from the Powerbeats Pro is the wireless charging technology. The case of this model doesn’t support Qi wireless charging.
10) No Rating For Water-Resistance
The earphones are water resistant but Beats isn’t disclosing an IPX water resistance rating. The company also said that the model is engineered to handle all of your sweat without fail. Note that the charging case of the model is not water-resistant so wipe the earbuds before placing them in the case.
