Amazon reportedly creating AirPod-like earbuds with Alexa integration

The latest Powerbeats Pro in-ear music makers have just been revealed by the United States firm and they look set to offer a range of upgrades including a smaller and lighter design, better sound and 9-hour battery life.

The new PowerBeats Pro is 23 percent smaller and 17 percent lighter than the wired Powerbeats 3. In other words, the Powerbeats Pro earbuds can do everything the new AirPods can-but better. Now we're enjoying the second generation of the AirPods, but Apple looks set to get some new competition from one of the biggest players in the smart device category: Amazon. That means that voice-activated "Hey Siri" support is also included in the new Powerbeats Pro, too.

Apple is going to include reverse wireless charging tech in its upcoming 2019 iPhones, due to be unveiled this fall.

Apple's popular AirPods, which debuted more than two years ago, range from $159 to $199.

The Powerbeats Pros aren't entirely a surprise.

In addition, Galaxy S10 is capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously, while connected to a regular charger, enabling you to leave your second charger at home while on a trip.

It's not the first time when a device is being updated to a certain level to work as a wireless charging pod remotely.

With the over-ear design, there's a little more to them than AirPods, but you won't have those awkward ends sticking out of your ears.

The Powerbeats Pro is more expensive than the AirPods 2 but it offers a secure fit, longer battery life, better sound quality, and a water-resistant design.

Powerbeats Pro act like AirPods, with no power button. They turn on when you pull them out of the slightly bulky charging case and connect to your phone or watch or whatever as soon as you put them in your ears. You can pause and play music when removing or wearing the earphones. That's up on the 5 hours of the AirPods, which is impressive. They come in Black, Ivory, Navy, and Moss color options and will be available from May 2019.
