    The Best Beats Are Here

    Since the merger I have been waiting for a product that could show the quality that both companies are capable of making. Tried the power beat 3, and the solo 3 models and wasn't honestly impressed. Beats X is what I have been waiting for all the quality plus lightning charger compatibility! Love everything about these headphones!!! They have taken the spot of my bose soundsport headphones!!

    Almost as awesome as Studio wireless 2.0

    Pros: Comfortable, lightweight, easy to pair, charges quickly, fantastic sound quality, and beautiful. Cons: Can only control volume on smart devices. No independent volume control. Will max volume for standard Bluetooth transmitters in TVs and sound systems.

    Worth the wait

    When I bought my new iPhone a few weeks ago I researched the different wireless earbud options. I wear glasses so I didn't want an over the ear type and the Apple ones are uncomfortable and wouldn't stay in my ears. I wanted great sound and the ability to answer calls and use Siri, too. I was so excited to find these. They had everything I was looking for. What? Wait. They're not available yet? Well, it was only a couple weeks and I survived. They're so awesome and definitely worth the wait. The sound is incredible. I can't wait to use them at work on Monday.

    Solid clarity, excellent comfort, good looks, lightning input, solid W1

    Airpods are great but fit isn't for everyone. When moving around, they have a sneaky way of becoming disloged. Enter BeatsX, which have supremely balanced sound (not the usual bloated Beats bass of the past), excellent comfort (the rigid neck cable is infinitely better than a hard plastic one), battery life solid for a continuous day of use (8 hours or so), and quick charge via a lightning input so you don't have to carry an extra cable. All together, this makes for a great package, particularly with the W1 chip also in the other "3" series Beats headphones and the AirPods. Range is my entire apartment without a drop, and quick pairing to all my Apple devices. The 3 months of extra Apple Music ($30 value) included is just a great perk. Worth buying, especially with Apple's 14 day return policy.

    Dont Bother

    I've had the wired Bose in ear headphones for a couple years now. I wanted to try bluetooth and went with these BeatsX. I couldn't return them fast enough. The music (compared to Bose) sounded like I was listening through a tin can. Please heed my warning....

    Love this product.

    Noise isolation, in-line controls and great sound make these a far superior choice to AirPods. Also, you do not look like a complete moron wearing these. The product is well-made and the Bluetooth performance with the W1 chip is amazing. Bluetooth range is awesome, I have no issues anywhere in my house. Call quality is very good, people on the other end of the line do not complain and can hear me just fine. Also I love that please charge with the lightning cable. My only complaint is I wish they would automatically go into standby mode when you are not wearing them.

    Finally!

    Great Sound. Love the choice of earbuds. Only concern is when the magnetic earbuds connect around my neck, the music does not turn off. I don't want my music to continue playing when it is not in my ears.

    Great headphones

    They sound great! Connect to my phone/watch/iPad with ease. Would definitely recommend them!

    Bad Sound quality

    I am kind of disappointed with Beats. Even though the built in software is very well developed together with iOS 10, and all the cool stuff like quick charge and long battery life they just not do well what they are supposed to. I was hoping that they would have the same sound quality as any Beats, however, later on I found out that they did not. The sound is very sharp and really not soft, specially when playing music that have bass on it, and considering the price $200CA after taxes it does not really worth it.

    Best Budz to date!

    Perfect in every way, for my use so far.

    Awkward for stretching, abs, & bench workouts....

    Loving the Beats so far, but workouts that put you flat on your back (abs, stretching, benches) make them fall off your neck. Wish they worked in every position!

    Good Earbuds

    I've been waiting for these to come out since they were announced. They're my first pair of Beats so wasn't sure what to expect. Overall I'm happy with them. The sound is great. They're light and comfortable and I really like the magnetic earbuds that stay together when they're not in your ears. However, the one major disappointment is the wingtips. There isn't a single earbud ever made that will stay in my ears without using wingtips. The two included with the BeatsX are pretty much useless. They're both too small and provide very little security. I wish there were larger options as well a bit more durable to help stay in place.

    Holy Cow!

    So I was one of the lucky people to order and receive Apple AirPods shortly after launch. But that fit... boy was I disappointed, just didn't fit my ears... So after many months of waiting, I pulled the trigger on BeatsX minutes after they were put on sale. I'm SO HAPPY! -- the W1 chip is awesome, pairing with Apple devices is just pure joy but the most important parts... 1) Sound: INCREDIBLE and I own multiple Bose headphones which I loved the sound on. I have to say for wireless, these are THE BEST sounding wireless headphones, period. 2) FIT: AMAZING! The customizable ear tips make this perfect and in fact if you pick the right one, they create such an amazing ear seal that I feel these are just as good if not BETTER than my Bose noise canceling earbuds... LOVE THEM! Well done Beats & Apple, home run.

    Better than Powerbeats

    BeatsX fee like I'm wearing nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all, while Powerbeats can sometimes get uncomfortable. I'm really enjoying the new W1 chip in Apple's new wireless headphones, the power regulation and stability of bluetooth connection are both unequalled in my experience. If you are trying to choose between these and Powerbeats, choose these, unless the few extra hours battery life or water resistance is especially important to you.

    Woohoo! Pure Music!

    I had been stalking these headphones online for a while now and I couldn't decide which pair to choose between the solo 3, studio wireless and these. I chose these because they happened to be smaller and they looked very good. I am listening to music while writing this review, and let me tell you, the sound is almost the same as the Beats Studio. Mids and highs are very good, and the bass has got a nice kick and definition and is there without being overwhelming. But it is there indeed ! Couldn't be happier ! Give them a try, you'll like what you hear ! Better than the powerbeats! They look super good too!

    Beats X review

    The quality of the beats x sound pretty good, coming from the UR Beats earphones this was a downgrade, (as for the volume) the bass has definitely been turned down a lot as well. I was thinking about turning these back in but I can't beat the fact that they have the class 1 Bluetooth and the apple W1 chip.

    Great

    I really love these. I was some surprised at first to find there was no forward and reverse, but the controls that are there, are all intuitive. The sound is by far the best of any wireless device I've used. The bass is excellent, as one might expect from Beats. They are comfortable, and as you've no doubt seen in reviews, the W1 chip makes connection to snap.

    So so

    Ok sound not great, not Apple like design overall. - Wingtips poorly designed - Do turn off when not in use (earbuds linked magnetically) idiotic flaw - Too rigid cable uncomfortable

    Glad I bought them (worth the wait)

    Pros:
    – Now that I've gone wireless, I don't think I can ever go back. It's ridiculously convenient.
    – Excellent battery life & charge speed
    - Sound quality: Well-balanced "warm" sound with solid bass, much better than the stock AirPods. Probably due to the air seal they create in your ears. But still, the difference is major. I listen mainly to audiobooks, podcasts, and electronic/EDM music. Voice comes in very clearly, and electronic music has great bass and clear mids. The highs aren't as crisp as some other earbuds, but at this price point & with the other features BeatsX has I'm willing to make the compromise (which probably isn't even noticeable unless you're an audiophile)
    - Pairing: Couldn't be easier. Turn them on next to the iPhone, and done. I love that the headphones then show up in the Bluetooth menu on my Macbook Airs (work & home) automatically. I haven't experienced any skipping or any difficulty pairing, after having used them heavily over the last 24 hours.

    Cons
    - Wish they had an auto-off feature, as sometimes I forget to turn them off. But that's probably just part of getting used to wireless headphones.
    - The highs aren't as crisp as some other earbuds, but probably not noticeable unless you're an audiophile.

    Recommendation: Buy

    Love at first listen.

    Loved how simple they were to pair. They've been working perfectly for both work and running. Time will tell if they hold up, though.
