Evidently the controls are identical for each ear. Saving you the extra brain cells to remember which ear control does what.
These impressive earphones sit kind of around the ear canal rather than in the ear canal. Some still prefer the in the ear canal style, others think that the kind around the ear canal are more comfortable. It’s your preference.
The sound quality of course tends to bass-heads who enjoy the low-end thumping of hip-hop and rap. I wont say that it doesn’t sound great with classical music. The way music sounds is a subjective matter. It’s you who is the auditory god of what you and how you want to listen to your music.
With that said, I think that the Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earphones: Click here to learn more would be a fine purchase for all you young and active people out there.

Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones
A quick review question. What are Beats primarily known for?……….Okay, time’s up.
Your answer please? If you said bass…You are absolutely correct!!! Winner winner, chicken dinner! These have the low end sound like the back end of a lowrider car cruising the boulevard on a Saturday night…I hope that I didn’t just date myself.
Anywhoos, these baby’s will give you bass kicking listening pleasure for 12 hours. And of course since these were built under Apple’s control these will pair easily with an iPhone by using the W1 chip.
Its younger brother the Powerbeats Pro uses a newer chip the H1 chip for seamless linking to the iPhone. The W1 takes one more step to link…Oh the horror!
There are other differences you may want to consider. The Powerbeats Pro has all its controls on the ear pads and will automatically turn on when you unfold them.
The Powerbeats3 has its controls on a wired lanyard and you turn it on by turning on by pushing a switch on the actual earphones.
Once your battery is drained you will have to plug in. Where with the Powerbeats Pro you have a hard case that also acts as a charging base. The case for these are a soft silicon case.
it does have the ear hooks on them to keep them in place during vigorous activity.
The sound profile is essentially all Beats. Heavy on the bass, the rest is kinda secondary. Perfect for Hip Hop and POP music. Not really made for audiophiles (Fuddie Duddies). But a fun experience is to be had with a pair of the Powerbeats3: Click here for more.
Bose SoundSport Free – Free 2B Me
The Bose SoundSport Free. These wireless earbuds claim a battery life of up to 5 hours which is good enough for several workouts for me. they are sweat and rain resistant, so runners will like these earbuds a lot. They also let in a little ambient noise so if you are in public you are able to hear a bit and its good to know what’s happening in your surroundings.
These Bose units are pretty comfortable and fit nicely and sound crisp, clear and powerful. They don’t really sit in the ear canal as they sit, more or less, on the ear canal. The SoundSports also come with a handy charging case. A very nice feature if I say so myself, and I say so…myself.
These earbuds are large side, so if you don’t mind looking a little like Frankenstein with the protruding bolts on his neck then you wont mind the look of these, except these are on your ears. I personally think these units are good looking, but that’s my opinion. I do like the color choices that are available.
I say, “Let them eat cake.” Not only do these Bose SoundSport sound great, they look delicious as well. Bon Appetit!
Sennheiser Momentum – Let’s Keep the Momentum up
For the audiophile extraordinaire, primarily known for years as the pinnacle of personal audio (Headphones, that is.) The Bluetooth Sennheiser Momentum is the product for all you high end audiophiles out there.Not only do they sound incredible, but they look the part too.
Unfortunately the battery life is something not to write home about. The earphones itself have a battery life that lasts 4 hours plus an additional 8 with the charging case. Not awful, but certainly not the best. Okay. It is pedestrian at best.
But let’s talk about the he audio quality. It is fantasical!!! ( Is that a word?) Good punchy bass clear mids and crisp highs. Using the Sennheiser Smart Control App gives you the ability of total control over the sound quality of your music. The sound quality is the saving grace of these little beauties.
They also feature fingertip controls on each earphone. These may need getting used too. But nothing a little practice won’t help.
These earbuds are so exquisitely refined with detailed natural sound and impeccable styling, these may be too good for me. This is style well defined. But if given the chance these Bluetooth earpods would be mine. All mine…Muhahahaha! Okay. I’ll stop now.

These earbuds are definitely a home run for Sony. They are comfortable, leek and sound amazingly awesome.
