    Changing Beats

    I got these for free with an iPhone X order with EE (UK). I wouldn't have bought them myself, because of my past experiences with Beats headphones but they have replaced my existing earbuds.

    To me they are great. Far more neutral (still not completely neutral) sounding than the other Beats headphones I've spent time with. All the expected amount of accessories included. They're not my SE535s, but they serve a different purpose altogether. Pairing with Apple products is seamless.

    Overall, a showcase of what happens to a product when Apple gets involved in R&D.

    Sound quality great, but they keep disconneting!

    I love the sound beatsx give, but while they’re connected obviously. I’ve had my beats for about 2 months majority of the time they keep disconnecting from my iPhone 7. The software is up to date so I have no clue whats wrong

    Great for Music but not for Phone Calls

    The BeatsX, when used with proper choice of plugs and the little plastic piece that keeps it in the ear, is great for music. Deep bass, good tonal quality and easy to use. I like the neck band with magnets that keep it in place. However, when used as a microphone, it must be loosened from the ear or else you feel as if you are talking into a chamber with no feedback from outside. This makes it difficult to switch between music and phones. The other problem is the weird positioning of the on-off switch that makes it difficult to connect and turn off to different devices. That was just one star off. The second star off is that with the pair I got and with my iPhone 8, switching between Apps (Music to FaceTime or Music to Phone) sometimes does not work at all. I am sending my pair off for repair and I hope it gets fixed. I think I am getting AirPods.

    Sounded great when it worked

    These earphones are actually better than i expected when i bought them and they worked great for the 6 months i have owned them but earlier last week the earphones began to malfunction, when i tried to turn them on the power light just flashed white 3 times and won't switch on so i plugged it into power thinking it ran out of juice but the red light started flashing red and white so i thought to unplug it but then it wouldn't switch on altogether, but then for some odd reason they started working after a while but just today it stopped working again. All i am trying to say is that it would be great for a device that cost 129.99 to be built to a higher standard but I've owned beats products that have lasted me a shorter amount of time.

    Bad Earbuds

    I really don't like these, I had another set before and it might just be that I have odd shaped ears but I just can't seem to get them to stay in. I got these for running and they fall out when I'm just sat still so no chance when I actually run. Very disappointed

    Outstanding Product. Outstanding Sound.

    I have avoided the Beats headphones for years because the traditional, over-the-ear type is really not my style. However, I was not thrilled with the headset that comes with the iphone. I wanted a product that I could use for music as well as for making calls. Enter the Beats X. I bought it, tried it and loved it. Fits snugly in my ears, has awesome sound and provides a call experience on par with devices made specifically for that. The price tag may seem steep, but if you consider the cost of purchasing both a headset for music and a device for taking calls, the Beats X is a bargin. Love the product so much, I bought one for my husband.

    Great, but now won't turn on!

    I've had my Beatsx since August (3-4 months). I really love them. However, they now won't turn on after charging. Did a quick search of the web, and finding this seems to be a problem with the product - just check the forums. Expect better quality for the price paid.

    Easily damaged by moisture

    My second pair now being sent back awaiting replacement. Use these most of the time running here in the Pacific NW and with the rain and sweat the moisture gets in through the power button. These buds sound great to me fit well and don't fall out / snug and have very good life on each charge but it appears I'm not going to be able to use these in workout situations indoors or out. Too bad.

    Worked for less than a month - ... very poor product

    After just one month of use the device does not turn on any longer. Tried a few resets,after finding the method described on the internet without any effect. Complete waste of money! For such an amount you expect something that works!

    LOVE LOVE beatsX

    I've had a few wireless/bluetooth earphones and by far, this beatsX surpasses them all. Right off the bat, sound quality is amazing, connectivity is instant and this is the first that fits my ears so well with very little work. I love the case that it comes with. I've only have it for a few hours and I definitely love it ... I don't think I will go back to any other. I can't wait to pair it with my iPhone X!!!

    Wireless headphones are a game changer

    got my beats in may of 2017 it is now November and use them everyday. the sound quality is amazing and the accessory ear piece helps to hold them in my ears when go for a run! the right earphone randomly stopped working recently and so chatted with a customer service rep online and they are sending me a box to ship them back and they are going to fix them all for free!! great customer services can’t wait to start listening again!

    beautiful but lacking important feature

    BeatsX is a beautiful product and the sound was amazing. Unfortunately, I returned mine for one very simple yet important reason... when Beats created the product, they didn't build into it the ability to be connected to two devices at one time! So may competitors offer this simple feature and into days mobile and often remote user, being connected to my laptop and my phone at the same time is critical. Too bad too. it is otherwise the best choice out there in my opinion. Hopefully they will "fix" this missing feature in the next upgrade.

    WIll stop working after 2-3 months

    Just frustrating going back to the apple store to have them shipped in to receive a replacement 2-3 weeks later. Tired of always having to replace them for christ sake!

    Real Life review

    I am a regular everyday user, when i was looking at the options i knew these were not bass heavy but decided to take the plunge anyway, i am not disappointed in anyway, their sounds are clear link up to my iphone 8 plus effortlessly, i advise using their wing tips and their ear plugs that suit your configuration. I use them on my train commute, walking and in the train. Its not very bass heavy but for all types of spotify music it works great and its a great everyday use item Comfortable beyond belief and i even use them in the gym no problems what so ever.
    For a chance purchase it has turned out to be a piece i will hold onto for a very long time
    charges with your standard apple lead and lasts for hours and good microphone so all in all it gets a thumbs up from me

    Best Wireless Headphones, on par with AirPods.

    It has great audio isolation, even when audio is not playing. Great battery Life of 8 to 9 hours of continuous Podcast & Spotify listening on my iPhone 6 Plus.No dropped connection going from one end to another in our 2400 sq ft concrete house. Charges within 30-45 mins.
    I plug it ,through lightning, when I go to the Bathroom, or eat lunch or dinner. I love the fact that unlike AirPods it has physical controls that work with Windows ,pre iOS 10, and also Android. I don't use these platforms myself. But not having to continuously rely upon SIri is great.
    It feels very comfortable, and on days when I do not need audio isolation, I switch out my tips.
    Combined with the extra 3 hours of battery life, and physical controls they are better than AirPods. But for folks who don't use the headphones heavily (6-10hrs) ,AirPods are a good choice.

    Fantastic

    The beats quality is very well known but I was afraid about the bass, so I did some bass test and I still in shock, definitely I would recommend it

    It needs improvements

    The sound quality is good.There two things I really dislike. The first thing I dislike is that the power source is open. There nothing to cover it when it rain. The second thing , the power button is beside your neck . It bother me because I not able to see if It on or off. So sometimes I need to take it off to pair it with my iPhone all over again.
