There is a big ad in L.A. at the corner of Sunset and Vine, showing a photo of the Powerbeats Pro we previously saw, with the text “Totally Wireless.” In the distance, part of a billboard for the headphones can be seen, which reportedly says “Coming Soon.”

Powerbeats Pro will be truly wireless, without the connecting wire that Powerbeats 3 have. It’s likely to include Apple’s new H1 chip that appeared in AirPods 2, which enables the hands-free “Hey Siri” feature along with faster pairing between devices.

We don’t know the price yet but we think it will be US$199. Current Powerbeats 3 headphones are US$99, although they had an original retail price of US$199.

Update

Official announcement. They will be US$249.95.
