Amazon to challenge Apple's AirPods with first Alexa-powered wearable

Anker Power Port Wireless 10 Wireless Charging Pad

"Powerbeats are already the #1 fitness headphones in the world and they are now untethered, with all the benefits of the Apple H1 chip", said Luke Wood, president of Beats.

Powerbeats Pro cost $250 and will be available this spring.

All of that is according to a new report from Bloomberg, which notes that Amazon is teeing up a pair of wireless earbuds that include Alexa access built in for later this year.

The two focus areas for the Powerbeats Pro earphones are sound and fit, two areas that most users care about. With the wireless case, though, you can put the AirPods down on a Qi-compatible charging pad and do it that way instead.

In terms of functionality, the Powerbeats Pro behave a lot like the Apple AirPods. Given the improved sound isolation offered by these Powerbeats Pro, there's an argument to be had that these may be the better option for many people.

It's not clear whether bilateral wireless charging on the new iPhones will work with non-Apple gadgets. The buds are also sweat-and-water resistant. The headphones will be cordless and sit in users' ears similarly to the AirPods. Certainly, my ears can't really spot any significant difference between the first- and second-generation buds, though AirPods 2 seem to get louder at the top end.

The H1 chip allows for speedier connectivity, 50 percent more talk time compared to the original AirPods, as well as hands-free "Hey Siri".

AirPods 2 last for 5 hours on a single charge. The yet-to-be-named headphones will even look and feel like AirPods. It stays firmly in your ears thanks to its ear-hooks, and unlike the AirPods, it comes in four different colors - Black, Ivory, Moss, and Navy.
