    Very helpful, thank you. I have the Beats X, and interested to hear how they compare, sound quality wise.

    I have the Pro since Friday (I was one of the few who are able to receive a week from the pre-order without expedited shipping) and have been using them since then during my workout. I could attest the sound quality is awesome, much superior than AirPods. The Powerbeats Pro is indeed the best EarPods Apple has released. The high price justifies the sound quality, ear ergonomic, sweat proof plus the new AirPods new technology capabilities. No wireless charging is not a big deal, hence not a deal breaker.

    Hmm, I bet with comply foams these would isolate enough for planes....

    Got mine yesterday and have been using them for about 6 hours in a few different conditions. The sound isolation is lacking with the stock earbuds. I’ve always used Comply eartips when I used to have IEM in the past. I seriously hope you’re correct. My Comply eartips will he arriving tomorrow so I will year it out then.

    Just happen to get off a one hour flight. I tend not to have the volume very high when wearing earbuds to protect my hearing and had to have the volume up half way to get decent volume on my pop music. The noise isolation using comply tips was good enough to muffle discussions nearby and I could still hear announcements in the terminal, at the gate and on the plane. However, I did hear the whirring of the plane in flight and thus had to increase the volume a bit. Again this is subjective so others might have a better experience than me.

    Edit: used it for 2 hours and battery showed 87% remaining. Overall very comfy including the ear hooks and I wear glasses.

    I just got my Comply eartips and I'm still not getting enough volume on my Powerbeats Pro. I basically have to turn the volume almost to the max just to get decent volume. How far do you turn the volume on for normal listening?

    Hmm, I doubt my unit is defective because I had the same issue with the Airpods. They weren't loud enough either so I was listening to near max. I was hoping these were different since they are in-ear buds. I hope more people can get a hand on them to see if other people have the same opinion.

    Thank you so much. My main concern was compatibility with Comply foam tips. You cleared that right up for me

    I doubt not much. I also have them and don’t see them being too much of a difference. I want louder but I’m not holding my breathe.

    Ya I turn mine up all the way on beatsX, I figured it would be the same. Just no pesky wire.

    I’ve had my pair since yesterday and I’d say I’m usually at 3/4 of the way up so not total max. Definitely not enough sound isolation so perhaps the comply tips will work to solve that minor issue for me. Also some rubbing on my left ear because of the ear hook but none on my right. Maybe I’m not getting a perfect fit there? Otherwise they sound great and fit for the most part has been good. I will try the foam tips and see how they sound.

    I'm going to try some silicon triple flange tips I found on Amazon. I used them when I had some Etymotic IEM and they sealed very well.

    I am completely fine with 67-75% volume with the medium tips on the NYC subway. It’s not a complete seal but retains bass; don’t forget, these are workout headphones likely designed to allow some ambient noise so a truck doesn’t hit you on a run. It’s sufficient for drowning out gym noise as well while allowing some attention.
