During a recent West Indies tour, cricket superstar Virat Kohli caught the attention of fans and fellow cricketers by sporting a pair of unconventional earbuds. The moment became even more special as it marked Kohli’s 500th match, during which he showcased his exceptional skills by scoring a remarkable century, receiving accolades from cricket legend Garry Sobers. However, Kohli’s choice of earbuds sparked curiosity and intrigue in the cricket world.
Known for his preference for Apple products, Kohli surprised everyone by opting for a different brand of earbuds during the tour. Instead of the familiar Apple AirPods Pro or AirPods Max, he chose the Beats Powerbeats Pro TWS (True Wireless Stereo) earbuds. The stylish and functional earbuds immediately captured the attention and left fans wondering about the brand and model he was using.
The Beats Powerbeats Pro earbuds are priced at $249.95 (approximately ₹20,000) in Apple’s official US store. They come equipped with adjustable and secure-fit ear hooks, ensuring a comfortable and stable fit during various activities. This feature makes them suitable for intense workout sessions and athletic activities.
Moreover, the Beats Powerbeats Pro earbuds boast an IPX4-rated sweat and water resistance, making them durable and reliable even in demanding conditions. Their robust build and resistance to sweat and water ensure they remain functional and comfortable throughout extended usage.
What adds to the intrigue surrounding Kohli’s earbuds choice is that the Beats Powerbeats Pro is not officially available in India. This rarity makes his decision to don these earbuds even more special and fascinating for fans and tech enthusiasts.
During the West Indies tour, Kohli had the opportunity to meet with the mother of West Indies wicketkeeper-batter, Joshua Da Silva. The heartwarming encounter was captured in pictures and videos that quickly went viral, adding an emotional touch to the tour.
