    Overpriced junk with connectivity issues

    I am on firmware 7.0.3, the latest version. My iPhone 6 is running iOS 11.0.1, also the latest version. My BeatsX randomly refuses to connect to my iPhone when I power it on. I have to kill the headphones and attempt 3 times or so to get it to connect. It's incredibly frustrating. I'm not buying any Beats products again.

    Poor sound quality

    Pros: Holds a long charge and comfortable
    Cons: Very poor sound quality and basically if your earphones are for listening to Music and Videos avoid this product, they are not worth the price.

    Do not buy!!!!!!

    Do not buy had these for less than 6 months they will not charge. They stopped working after a workout looked for solution online and so many people are having the same issue. They are not worth the money or hassle. Do not waste money on inferior tech priced high!!!!

    Discouraged

    I was so happy to purchase my beats x but as soon as 3 months hit they started acting up. This will be my third pair and last try to see if they stop messing up after 3 months . Every 3 months I call apple for a replacement because they stop working . And the case that’s provided for them is not a good case it should be changed to like a small pouch or purse or a hard case because this case really sucks and can be part of why they get damaged as well .over all they sound great just don’t last longer than 3 months before you have to report it to Apple .

    Amazing!

    Just got these a couple of days ago and they are wayyyy better than I expected. If you're looking for new headphones you need to get these. Sound is great, battery life is great and they charge so fast and the bluetooth range is unreal.

    Worth it

    When Beats first came out, I was not a big fan. I have never been a big fan of big, bulky headphones. Later Beats introduced their earphones and I was all for it. They had the nice bass expected from the Beats brand. They were nice and convenient. I later got into fitness and wanted something wireless, something that wouldn’t get in the way, but wasn’t bulky. Beats introduced the Powerbeats, but I felt like it was too bulky around the ears, so I stayed away. I stayed with my beats earphones, the wired ones. When Beats introduced the Beats X, I jumped right on it. I love the earphones. They are very convenient and easy to use. I am a third-year college student, which means I am broke. When the Beats X came out for only $150.00, I didn’t even think about it. I drove to Best Buy and got one for myself and my girlfriend right away. I use it daily. It has an 8-hour battery life. When the battery is running low, all you need do is charge it for 5 mins to get 2 hours of battery life and when you want a full charge, all it takes is 45 mins. It is nice and flexible, and it sits tightly, but not too tight, on the back of your neck. The part that sits on the back of the neck is made of rubber to prevent it from slipping. The Beats X is also the only Beats product that uses a lighting charger, like the iPhone. I am an iPhone user and the fact that I can use the same charger as my phone made it more convenient. The Beats X comes with a lighting charger, and to be honest, mine is still in the box. My phone charge works just as well. There are a few downsides. The Beats X came with “removable secure-fit wingtips” in two different sizes. I put them on the day I got them and lasted like 4 to 5 months before one of them broke. I now use them without it and they still stay on. Also, when I first used them, I did not get that bass that you’ll expect using a Beats product, but it is still much better when compared to its competitors. Another plus, since Apple is now a part of beats, I got a 3-month free trial to Apple Music when I purchased my Beats X.

    Great sounding earphones with some tweaking

    I did a lot of research on the Beats X and there are some comments about the mid's & high's sounding a little bit tinny. But you can really get the overall sound quality a lot better with some tweaking. Using the right sized ear tips is key. I ended up using Comply memory foam tips which really creates a good seal in the ear canal and enhances the overall sound quality. The bass wasn't quite where I wanted it to be so I messed with the EQ settings on my iPhone and solved that problem. Now my Beats X sound awesome. If you're an iPhone user, the Beats X are what you want to have.

    Rubbish

    This product is rubbish. Wireless was really liberating at first, but its sound quality is absolutely abysmal. It’s worse than the standard Apple EarPods. I did not get a faulty product; it’s just bad. Your music will sound like an airy, metallic disappointment. It’s sound reminds me of Apple’s earphones before the EarPods. The slightest brushing movement of its ‘neck’ wires against clothing creates a nettling whishh-washh noise. Your steps will immediately be amplified, like in an echo chamber, with these earphones on. What bass? Deep tones? Nonexistent! I’m an ardent Apple fan. I actually loved the EarPods. They’re easy to maintain; no flimsy rubber ear tips; they happen to fit me perfectly. I’d say buy the AirPods if you want something wireless. The only redeeming quality of the Beats X are its colours and the way they easily clip into place when you hang them around your neck. But earphones are earphones: First and foremost, they must sound good. The Beats X does not.

    'Scuse Me, I'm Sorry

    But there's NO WAY these Beats X are better than the standard Apple Headphones. I've been using both the Beats X and the headphones that came with my iphone 6 and there's a stark difference between the sound. Beats X can't pick up any bass notes and it's not as clear. I couldn't figure out how to change that quality.

    The apple headphones make you feel like you're surrounded in the music. Beats X feel like I'm listening to music through someone's telephone. As if the music is playing on their TV in the background. It's distant.

    Praises that they are Bluetooth/wireless. The earpieces fit well, the packaging was great but the sound on Beats X does not compare to the standard apple headphones. No Lie

    Try Again Beats X

    For the price you would think...

    They would last longer than 2 weeks. Today the power light started flickering and acting spastic. Connected to Apple chat support which itself is a pain - three sessions disconnected in the middle (used two different browsers, I think it was on Apples end). They are definitely toast - tried to make a call and they disconnected half way through (yes the battery is charged). I'm thinking the power switch is faulty based on the way the lights are flickering. Oh yeah and to go in and exchange these $150 ear buds I have to make an appointment at the "Apple Support Bar". First available appointment is Sunday 4 days from now. What a joke - I should just be able to go in and exchange them. Apple is driving me nuts.

    good design but Poor quality

    I really like the design of this product and the quick charging of it. However, this earphone always has some problems in turning on/off. Within eight months, I already have three of them failed to turn on or connect to devices anymore. Actually, I do not use it often and I am very careful to this small delicate product. So I guess it must be the quality problem.

    For the third one, I only use once and It is failed to turn on. Really angry about the bad experience on beats products! Right now, it is still in the warranty time, and the only thing I can do is contact Apple and change to new one. I really worried about the time after the warranty. I feel like that I bought a shXt!

    The fit makes all the difference.

    At first I didn't care for these because I didn't like the flat sound. However that was due to using the wrong ear pads. The key is getting a good seal. Every since I found the right fit, I was hooked. The fast charge is great. Super light weight. W1 chip allows a quick pairing and it already shows on all your iCloud connected devices. Really pleased so far after owning for a month now.

    Beast Beats!

    Awesome lightweight headphones, with cool features like W1 chip and fast fuel charging! Sound is clear and good. They stay in my ears pretty well, even when running or just hurting up somewhere. Now the note for the workout lovers! This product doesn't claim any kind of sweat or water resistance, but I haven't had any issues with BeatsX while working out or putting them in sweaty or wet bag after workout or under the rain. So it is at your own risk to use them when working out or under the rain for reason being that if they will get water damage, the warranty won't fix it, you'll have to buy a new pair of headphones.

    Great sound and clarity!

    Well the first pair I had went bad after a month as they would not charge and had a blinking red light on them every time I went to turn them on. I even went online to find out how to reset them and saw that I wasn't the first with this issue. Seeing that I am a loyal apple/beats customer I decided to try to return then which I had no problem doing and I am a big believer in second chances. I decided to buy them again after the return as I loved them from day one and so far I am going on about 2 months on this pair and love them. No problems and they sound amazing!
