    Powerbeats Pro are now available to pre-order from Apple.com and the Apple Store app in the United States and Canada.

    Powerbeats Pro are Apple's first totally wireless Beats earphones, equipped with the same H1 chip as the second-generation AirPods for hands-free "Hey Siri" and faster connection speeds between the iPhone, Apple Watch, and other devices.

    Like the Powerbeats3, the Powerbeats Pro feature adjustable, secure-fit ear hooks and earbud tips with four size options. They're essentially sportier AirPods, complete with a durable design and sweat resistance. They'll last up to nine hours per charge, with more battery life via an included charging case.

    Powerbeats Pro are priced at $249.95 in the United States and $329.95 in Canada. The earphones will be available at Apple Stores and select resellers like Best Buy on May 10 in those two countries, with other regions listed as "coming soon." Ivory, Moss, and Navy colors will be available later this year.

    Orders placed today are currently estimated for delivery by May 14 to May 21.

    Is it weird that these don’t appeal to me at all?

    These have my attention if they're more comfortable than the AirPods. The hard plastic on the AirPods bother me after extended use. Can't afford them at this time though.

    I was under the impression that they were going to be available in the UK, too. Shame :(

    How is it weird? smh

    Not everything Apple, or any other product, should always appeal to everyone.

    Same, I’m hoping for May 10th delivery though. I’ll be pissed if I wait 11 more days after retail availability even though I preordered.

    It’s all about choices. The AirPods don’t fit me at all and fall out even when I walk. The hooked over the ear design of these literally don’t move an inch on me even if I try to shake my head like a maniac so they are ideal when I work out... or walk lol. I like I get the tech of the AirPods (still the best Bluetooth implementation of any earbud ever) in something that really works for me and what I want to do when listening to music. Obviously they have downsides in size and carrying case compared to AirPods but the upsides make it worth it to many of us.

    I think that’s normal. I don’t think anyone got a May 10 delivery date. I ordered at 7:00:30 AM and it was May 15-23 for me.

    I assumed with a preorder date and then an on sale date a week later it would be like Apple usually does, preorders get delivered on the launch date. I guess not mine also shows the 14-21 date which like means they will SHIP on the 10th. Oh well but a bit disappointing when folks probably can walk into the Apple Store on the 10th.

    Ordered at 10 on the nose. Same message. Hoping it’s just a holder. For 250 plus tax they better arrive on launch day.

    Me too, still have my wired PowerBeats3 but I really like the wireless option, just the 250 price tag scares me. Will probably wait for Black Friday when they will be 200 or maybe lower? Enjoy!

    To each his own. I like them. Look good for working out. Airpods fall out all the time for me.

    Just a heads up as someone who ordered immediately upon launch...

    There were only two options. $8 expedited with a quoted arrival from May 13th - May 20th.
    Free shipping with a quoted arrival of May 14th - May 21st.

    I opted for expedited because I want these as soon as possible.

    All my local Apple stores are currently showing pickup available for May 21st. At immediate 10:00 EST launch there was no option for in-store pickup.

    Perhaps to purchase on May 10th you will need to visit an Apple store.

    I ordered without hesitation. I liked my airpods the last couple years and still do, but other than than the cable always preferred the Powerbeats

    Like several of you, my order is also showing a May 14-May 21 delivery window.

    It will be interesting to see if our orders get pushed up to the promised May 10 release date or if Powerbeats Pro are truly in limited supply.

    For preorders like this, when does Apple actually charge your credit card?
