Pick: Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones

Since Apple's new wireless AirPods won't be shipping for awhile, Rene Ritchie's pick of the week on MacBreak Weekly 532 is the Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones. These earphones contain the new W1 chip so it will have the same kind of instant pairing and automatic propogation to all of your devices as the AirPods will. It also will intelligently switch between them depending on which one is doing the audio streaming at the time.

The Powerbeats3 also are a good alternative to those who don't like the design of Apple's AirPods. These have a much different shape, and also have the loop that goes around your ear. They're ideal for working out and stay in your ear very securely. They can get up to 12 hours of battery life, and a 5-minute charge gives you 1 hour of playback when the battery gets low. They also are sweat and water resistant.

- Buy Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones ($199.95)
