Of course, that band does serve a purpose: to keep them in your ears even when you’re exercising, and we can confirm that recreational joggers and sprinters-for-the-bus will appreciate that.

Lovers of rock, hip-hop and dance music will be especially pleased, but the truth is that the Powerbeats have the accuracy and control to turn their hand to just about any genre.
