A class action lawsuit has been filed against Apple for inflating the battery life of Beats Powerbeats Pro true wireless headphones. According to the plaintiff, New Yorker Alejandro Vivar, the headphones do not work for 9 hours, as claimed by Apple.
The lawsuit alleges that a poorly designed charging case, in which the earbuds easily lose contact while charging, is partly to blame for the problem. It is also reported that the sweat and water resistance rating of IPX4 is not true, since sweat damages the charging contacts. This is exacerbated by the fact that sweat damage is not covered under warranty.
Vivar insists he used Apple’s marketing claims when selecting the earphones, expecting the battery to “last the promised time, that both earbuds charge and hold a charge the same way, are not affected by sweat, and that the ability to charge will not be adversely affected by product design.” “. He also states that Apple made a lot of profit at the expense of consumers because it decided not to talk about problems with Powerbeats Pro.
The suit is supported by users from various states, including New York, Georgia, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Virginia.
In Russia, these headphones cost 18,990 rubles.
