Some lucky Apple fans who preordered its new Powerbeats Pro buds are set to enjoy early deliveries.

Apple originally stated a delivery date of May 13 for its latest Beats headphones. However, many customers are now expecting to receive theirs on Friday, May 10.

Apple first showed off Powerbeats Pro in early April before unleashing an ad filled with pro athletes. They’re totally wireless, and they steal a number of features from its newest AirPods.

Those features include “Hey Siri” support and Apple’s new H1 wireless chip that allows for faster connectivity. Powerbeats Pro also turn on automatically when taken out of their case.

You’ll be able to buy Powerbeats Pro from an Apple Store for the first time tomorrow, May 10. And those who preordered theirs online will start seeing them arrive on their doorsteps, too.

Powerbeats Pro on the way

Many preorder customers have seen delivery dates change from May 13 to May 10, 9to5Mac reports.

It’s unclear if all preorder delivery dates have been updated, but this is certainly the case for many. If you preordered later you’re likely going to have to wait a little longer.

Powerbeats Pro are priced at $249.95 and come in a number of colors, including black, ivory, moss, and navy. They’re water-resistant, and offer up to nine hours of use in between charges.

Have you ordered yours yet, and if so, when are they scheduled to arrive?
