    incredibly shocked

    I always thought people bought Beats just to have the brand name Beats by Dr Dre as a status symbol or to be cool. But i tried my friend's new BeatsX heaphones and i was so impressed and in awe i immediately went and bought a pair for myself. I'll never go back to non-Beats brand

    Great design, tinny sound

    I do pretty intense workouts and really need wireless headphones connected by a little cable. These hit all the marks: sleek gray, easy connection to iphone, great battery charging and life. Except...the sound is super tinny and has zero base. The default iphone headphones that come with the phone have a far more balanced sound than these. Adjusting the equalizer created even more distortion and severely limited the volume. I listen to them because the form factor really works for me, but eventually I'll probably get tired of the sound and get some Jaybirds.

    Poor base

    I just bought these earphones and Im really disappointed with the sound. Its very tinny with very little base. Ive been sitting all night with a pair of Apples normal supplies headphones and comparing the sound and they beat the beats hands down. The 2 stars I gave only reflex the comfort and the magnetic tips which are great however the sound of these beats is painful. Im return them tomorrow.

    Now I can justify spending hundreds on headphones

    Before I bought my black BeatsX, I found it preposterous that people were spending hundreds of dollars on headphones. I was content with my EarPods, but seeing that the future of no wires is dawning, and that the EarPods didn't fit me too well, I decided to bite the bullet and purchase these headphones.

    These stayed in my ears, the noise cancellation was superb, the sound quality was better than anything I had expected, and the pairing process was actually magical (thanks to the W1 chip). Don't like how they sound? No worries - change the EQ settings and you are good to go! These really complete the "all Apple" package; don't have to have my phone on me, anything I need to do I can do using the inline controls or my Apple Watch (for example to pick a particular song without using Siri).

    I expect these to be delivering my tunes for many years to come. Good work, Apple!

    Disappointing

    i mainly bought this for the gym and it doesn't worth the money. when you lean down, the sound changes, when you wipe your sweat and your ear is slightly pulled back, half the sound disappears, when you are on the treadmill and the wire is rubbing against you, the sound changes. it is a shame you have to pay 200 dollars before you are allowed to try and see if this is any good for you.

    Wow!

    I've been looking for a bluetooth earphone for a few months now until I saw the announcement of beatsx getting released. I've been skeptical about beats but beatsx totally changed how I look at it. Easy to connect to my iphone & mac, super light and comfy on neck and in-ear, lighting charging is fast, crisp sound quality and the bass is just right, good noise isolation while I still can hear what's going on when I'm outdoors. The bluetooth connectivity blew me away. I walked around 25-30 feet away from my phone going out of my room passing through a few walls and it still works!! It will probably go more if I'm in an open space. Really impressive. Although it's at a pricier end, I'm really satisfied with my purchase.

    stay away until the Dr improves them

    Needs work on sound quality lacks bass, but I love the tech W1 chip is awesome. So until then i"ll stick with the Apple Airods

    Wires short circuits when twisted and crashes the earphones

    I love these earphones and the sound is great (when it's not brushing against you). I would genuinely give this a four star if it wasn't because of it's built quality. The wings I received didn't fit well, they will come loose when you wear them, so they were no use. Secondly the plastic / rubbery wire housing is just a bit too rigid, it just doesn't feel comfortable, it sticks out and doesn't really look good.

    The worst is that now it short circuits itself when you fold and twist it back into it's pouch. Once you put it into its pouch, it somehow crashes. So I tested it by twisting it and see what happens. When I twist it while it was still on, it will switch off. If I then straighten it out, it turns back on searching for devices to be paired. If it doesn't find a pairing, it switches off itself. OK, now once it switched off itself, you can not turn it back on manually anymore. Unless, I plug it back to the mains and it resets itself or I have to twist it again and straighten it out again and it will automatically turn on.

    Now I can't return it any more, I have to go back to Apple Store and get it repaired or replaced.

    Beats X is stunning!

    I usually don't write a review for Beats by Dr. Dre. I was fell in love of Beats X. It's what I use for moving around in home or out home. Apple W1 provided quickly access Bluetooth on startup. The best part about them is that you can adjust your ear tips, add ear hook (No fell off).

    Very Impressed!!!

    I bought a pair of these three weeks ago and have used them pretty much every day. They are a joy to use and this is mainly due to their elegant, streamlined design. They fit my ears perfectly, never fall out and never feel uncomfortable. You can just sense that a lot of thought went into designing these earphones and as such they feel quite special. The pairing process is way beyond effortless as is the charging. It is so great that you can use a Lightning cable as this just helps to make life just a little easier. This is a great pair of earphones, don't hesitate to get some!!

    Surprisingly pleased with the BeatsX - Initial Review

    I wanted a pair of wireless in-ear monitors, as the wire on my ATH-IM02 tends to get tangled as I'm walking. I have always been skeptical of the Beats headsets, as they are known to overemphasize low frequencies. I tried out the AirPods, but my ears are unfortunately not engineered to fit them very well. So I thought I would give the BeatsX a whirl.

    Pairing them with my iPhone 7 was super simple - they popped up; I clicked connection; and we were set to go. They also showed up thereafter in the Bluetooth settings on my Mac (not connected) - I haven't figured out how to have the BeatsX switch from my iPhone to my Mac yet.

    The fit is alright, but I expect that fit and isolate sound even better with some tips from Comply.

    I haven't experienced any connectivity drops yet - both for listening to music as well as on phone calls. This was one area concern for me.

    In terms of sound, I am going to reserve judgement (will write a follow up review). But I am pleasantly surprised that they don't seem bass heavy!

    Looking forward to seeing how they perform over time - good job, Apple!

    Worth getting

    I've tried other brands of headphones and doesn't beat the clearity of music and calls and doesn't beat the quality and comfort I found it after receiving them they are well worth the price and recommend getting them

    Outstanding

    These are the most comfy earphones from Beats to date. They connect flawlessly and sound as good as high end earphones that are currently on the market. I've spent a fortune on head and earphones and these are without a shadow of a doubt the best there currently is from Beats. I recommend these to all who are in the market for some really good/excellent ear hardware. Buy them now!!!

    Cant listen while charging

    I thought I would be able to continue listening while the earphones were charing but was completely surprised when the stupid headphones would not play music when connected to a lightning chord. WHY DO THIS??? I bought these to replace all my other headphones, I don't want to have another wired pair for when I am at my desktop after a whole day of use. WHY WHY WHY???

    5*

    I've been looking at the Airpods, but also heard a ton of bad things about it. A few days ago, I've the Beats X, just running through the Apple Store. They're cheaper and look nice too. I've read a few reviews, all great. I'm very happy with it. It's very easy to use and to set up. Charging is very very quick and last thing, the sound is pretty good for the kind of music I listen to (neo metal/metal/rock). They are also very easy to use on the Mac. Just one little bad thing : I didn't find how to turn them of.

    Hitting all the right beats (mostly)

    Positives
    - simple to pair
    - good quality audio ( Comparable to similarly priced non Bluetooth headphones )
    - comfortable design with minimalistic elements
    - fast charge
    - long battery life
    - flawlessly compatible with apple devices on native os

    Negatives
    - minor hiccups when pairing with a windows 10 Mac (boot camp partition ) ( output volume is lowered too, trying to find a fix )

    Great product ..

    I m coming from Tour 2 and i must say the beats x are very good headphones ... the bass is not that bad at all (like mentioned in lots of reviews) it is not as punchy as it was on tour 2 but bass is still there.. it is much more balanced clear sound . If u want more bass just turn on bass booster in equalizer... it does the job . Battery life really is 8 houres .. which is great.

    Great sound and connectivity

    The sound quality and ease of connectivity is superb but the mic and connection during phone calls is questionable. Audio randomly switches from the headphones back to the phone and the mic does not pick up well. I do recommend the headphones but if you talk on your phone often, this might not be an ideal choice.
