I see the 2 on sale everywhere, and Im trying to see if the 3 will even be worth it. Havent seen a true breakdown of the Powerbeats 3 specs to be able to compare.

Not exactly sure but just picked up some white Powerbeats2 at at&t and thought it was worth it for the price

I'm getting tired of my jaybirds not staying in my ear and have considered the powerboats but I've read many complaints about how sweat proof they are not. Seeing as that I sweat a lot I'm staying away.

I believe they have the W1 chip functionality, similar to the airpods. As a result, I think better battery life too.

X2.

It's not just jaybirds it's pretty much all ear bud types that depend on a seal to get a full sound.

As soon as some sweat gets into that seal they'll never stay in while you're jumping around working out
