Beats' Powerbeats Pro wireless headphones can now be preordered at Apple.com. They're scheduled to be available in stores next week, on May 10.  

Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products via the link above.

At first, you'll only be able to get them in black. The ivory, moss and navy models won't be available until summer, according to the fine print on Beats' site.

The Powerbeats Pro share some DNA with Apple's AirPods -- Apple owns Beats -- including the H1 chip for Bluetooth 5 connectivity and Siri. But unlike the AirPods, wireless charging isn't in their genes.

Look for our full review in the next few days, but check out the video below for early impressions.
