The Powerbeats Pro earn a 1 out of 10 on our repairability scale (10 is the easiest to repair):
The battery is a fairly common button-cell, and is only lightly soldered in place, meaning battery swaps are technically possible with the right tools.
The earbuds’ opening procedure is not totally destructive per se, but it will likely lead to at least some cosmetic damage.
The earbuds’ internal circuitry is all connected with fragile ribbon cables that do not detach, so a full disassembly can only be accomplished destructively.
The charging case is a nightmarish bucket of glue, making potential battery replacements unnecessarily difficult and destructive.
