    Do you think the Powerbeats3 Wireless will be updated soon?

    No, Apple will be rarely updating the Beats line up anymore. Maybe some chip updates or new colors. Apple is gonna be pushing AirPods, and their soon to come over ear headphones to distinguish from their Beats line up as the more premium option. Just like it's been pretty much 6 years since the last Beats Studio redesign. Just minor internal tweaks from now on.

    Have you seen info about over the ear headphones?

    I personally don't like AirPods since they hurt my ear. PowerBeats have been perfect. I just wish they had a different charging port. The Beats X would be even better if they had longer battery life. I'd get another pair of Powerbeats wireless before I get any AirPods.

    There have been multiple rumors on here and 9to5Mac about the over ear headphones in the past year. No for sure date on when they might drop but considering the Beats line up was updated last in 2017 it could be a couple more years until they touch their headphone lineups. If you're looking to buy another pair of Powerbeats now is a safe time. You could also try soft silicon tips that go over AirPods, I have them myself and others have reported they improve comfort and grip in your ear. New AirPods coming this year.

    So there is an "update", but I'm not a fan of the wireless idea. This sucks, but oh well. I will be getting another pair of 3's.

    Why not a fan of the upcoming Pro's?

    I’m just not a fan of 100% wireless headphones. They will be lost within the first month. Also, I don’t really like the button situation and how big they are.
