    Great product at an affordable price

    I just bought these tonight and I already love them. I came from UrBeats and it was a pain because I couldn't listen to music and charge phone at the same time. Now I can finally do that and these earphones are great quality and are affordable. They fit perfectly and come with plenty of eartips and wingtips. Easy to pair and very comfortable. One of the great design cues with these are the magnetized eartips so when not in use they stick together and don't swing as your walking. There is no other product that I have purchased that were this good! Bass is fantastic and the noise isolation is perfect

    Amazing

    I thought they were sold out near me but something told me to check in person. So to my surprise when I went in they had full shelves so I just grabbed them. The connection process was so easy it took no effort at all. I just turned them on and pressed connect when the prompt came up, this was my favorite part at first. Then, I pressed play on my music, that's when the real magic happened! The sound quality on these things is insane. Especially the bass, It's magical. If you're debating on buying these stop and just buy them.

    like beatsx, but...

    i love the beatsx. great earbuds; greatly enjoying them & highly recommend them. however, there are a few areas that could be improved: 1 - they are difficult to turn on, it's hard to tell when they are on/off and pairing is smooth, but not as smooth as it could be; 2 - can't listen to them while they are charging; 3 - while they are charging, my iPhone doesn't detect them so I don't how charged they are until i disconnect from the charger. over time, i hope apple/beat by dre fixes these minor issues. but i love the buds -

    Clarity & authenticity indeed! I'm loving these!

    I love the excellent sound quality! The ad touts the clarity, and authenticity and clear and authentic is exactly how I would describe them. I listen to all kinds of music, popular, jazz, classical, and they all sound excellent on these. I think the people who are rating them badly for sound haven't experimented with the different eartips. I ended up using a bigger set of tips for better sound.

    They are comfortable, easy to connect and charge. When you first open them the wire is coiled up, but they straightened up and became comfortable, and trying to get them in the case takes some getting used to, but not a big problem.

    I love that you can charge them for 5 minutes and get a couple hours of play. I tried all the features, pause, play, phone, Siri, they all worked well. I'm very pleased!

    Interesting product, but not quite there yet

    W1 chip features and easy pairing REALLY made me want to like this product ... BUT, alas the bad outweighed the good. The mic doesn't function well outside, with a breeze easily interrupting function during phone calls. The earbuds themselves sealed the ear canal really well, but over long periods of use these became uncomfortable. Also, the length of the cords and location of the battery lend the design to move A LOT during exercise.

    I've used Bose products for years and would love to switch to Apple to gain additional easy of use, like those offered by the W1 chip. I think the form factor of this product needs to evolve.

    I returned my purchase after 1 week of use.

    Finally!!! :D

    I purchased the powerbats3 while waiting for these but returned them few days later. As an "apple everything" person, you really can't beat having bluetooth earphones that charge via lightening cable. NO MORE MICRO USB!

    I wish the battery lasted a bit longer but I can get through a full day+ with constant use. The trade-off is the lightweight design. Classic Beats sound. Durable. Efficient. Stylish. Yeah, all that.

    Next time, Apple... ship them ON TIME :D

    Easy to use. Good sound

    VERY easy to use with any IOS device. Sound is good. Not as good as my Bose over the ear headphones, but these are earbuds and cost $200 less.

    Fantastic Bluetooth headset

    Been waiting a while for these to come out, just love how easily they pair up to my iphone, how easy it is to charge, and the fact I never get a dropped signal unlike my prior bluetooth attempt with the Bragi Dash earphones.

    Haven't gotten a chance to try to use the microphone yet, but otherwise just loving it. To be fair, I only really listen to podcasts with it, so I can't argue at all about the quality of music with them.

    Not very good.

    I'm surprised Apple allows this product to go out. It felt like I bunch of rubber bands fighting my face. The design is on the right track by having a wire around the top your neck with the volume and mic like traditional ear pods. The audio quality was acceptable, but I think normal ear pods sound better. I kept it for one day and returned. Way over-priced. Feels more like a product from a $10 lightning deal on Amazon.

    Best in-earphones ever!!

    I've been itching to get my hands on these little beauties since before Christmas. Just received delivery today and got to say they've been well worth the wait. I was tempted by the extended release date to pick up something else but I'm glad that I've waited for the beatsx. Straight out of the box and they've instantly paired with my iPhone 7plus. I was worried I'd lose bass compared to the Bose soundsport which I picked up last year. I needn't have worried. The bass is incredible. Sound quality is better than anything I've ever heard before. How can they be this good? I haven't charged them yet but there's no issues with battery level and I've been listening to music on a pretty high level of volume for about 4 hours without any issues.

    If you're thinking of investing in earphones which will blow you away- beatsx are for you. Incredible.

    Average

    For me a lack of Bass let's these down and if I could return them I would... worse bass than standard headphones. It's like there's no bass and all treble....!

    Good Looking, Clever Design, Ordinary Sound

    Gray one is really beautiful, and the overall design is nice - especially the lightening charge, very convenient. But the sound is average.

    They're Real, and They're Spectacular

    The best Bluetooth earbuds I've tried. Full spectrum sound. Great for jazz and classical music. Solid bass without the boom. I love Apple’s W1 chip. It facilitates a rapid Bluetooth pairing process. Beats X appears to have extended the effective BT range to 100 feet. Also, I haven’t noticed any of those annoying BT glitches and sound drops so prevalent in previous BT versions.

    Great Headphones But...

    I was waiting in anticipation for these new BeatsX headphones and after expecting a long three week wait via the online store, happened to find them being unpacked at my local Apple Store. They're as slick and smooth as they look - they're made well, they fit well, they look great, they connect seamlessly. But I found the volume on them a little low. Don't get me wrong, when maxed out they are pretty good, but walking around the city with traffic everywhere, I was a little surprised they couldn't go louder. I've tried different seals to get that better experience, but they're still a little "quiet" for me. The neckband is great too but will take a little getting used to. The cord is rigid and if you're wearing a collared shirt, its not a problem, but I found that with a t shirt it started to bother me after a while. They're the only two things I could "fault" with them.

    Great Beats.....but the case

    Got my pair today.

    1st impression

    Sound Quality: they are really great, good Bass from these set. As a EDM fan i always look for rich Bass without distortion

    Build Quality: Seems really sturdy for now, my concern is if these would be great for work outs. Apple doesn't state they are sweat proof or splash proof.

    Fit: Fit has always been a issue for me, having small asian ears and even smaller ear canals. So with that said I have put peoples children through college at Comply for their foam tips. So far so good, with the initial sizing, and haven't fallen out while walking the dog tonight.

    Pro: Magnetic connection is amazing. Traditional head phones i dangle around my neck either end up falling or end up tucked into my t shirt like I'm charging a pacemaker or something.

    Con: It comes with possibly the worst made "carrying case". its hard to describe..... its a rubber bean shaped thing where you squeeze it open, and your supposed to stuff your headphones inside. Im OCD about my electronics, I've tried to fold it like in the video and its looks like a stuffed empanada. its doesn't offer any protection. I think I'm gonna steal my bf PowerBeats2 case. that at least you can open and close that and gives you a sense of protection. Removing the headphones from its "rubber bean" isn't easy either. You have to yank them out. you can't even turn it upside down, shake them out onto your palm. This is no bueno.

    All in all its a good value and 4/5 stars. The rubber non-closure bean, squeeze to open thing is a miss on so many levels.

    Ignore reviewers.

    They do not sound flat, they have an incredible sound and bass.
    To be completely honest, the only thing they should've improved is the length, they're too long in my opinion, but they won't get in your way. They just look a little weird.
    They are amazing and you should definitely consider getting these.

    Beats X

    I have to say when I bought my Beats X and put them on the sound quality on them are really, really, really bad, I try to give them a chance playing around with the setting on both my phones and I couldn't stay with the for the life of me. when I say it's really bad, I mean it. I myself am a d.j. I was looking forward to the great sounds out of them. I had a pair Powerbeats 2 and they sounded great but not the Beats X. Don't waste your money on them, wait for the second version they might them sound much better than the 1st version. Sorry, Apple you missed the ball with this one. And for those of you say they sound great and giving it 5 stars you must have a hearing problem because they are really, really, really, really bad. When I returned my pair one of them associate told me, four other people before me had returned theirs

    By far the best bluetooth earphones I've used.

    I've been using a pair of Jaybird X3's for six months, and before that a pair of Jabra Rox Wireless for a year. Both had relatively good sound, but poor battery life and constant wireless interference when walking down the street in New York. Since getting the BeatsX a week ago, I've had zero interference issues. Walking through intersections where my audio would completely cut out, I have no issues. Sound is pretty good, and so is battery life. The only issue I have is that the power button is on the narrow edge of a lozenge shape, so it's awkward to use.

    FINALLY!

    So far so good! Sound is fantastic, build quality is great, and pairing....well the W1 is fantastic! Mac, Phone, iPad, Watch.... seamless! It plays a nice switching noise when you initiate the source change. Now I can stop being jealous of my EarPod owning friends!

    Disappointed after the long wait

    Waited a long time from these being announced before I could get my hands on them and sadly I don't think they were worth it. Firstly, the good, they were a great fit straight out of the box for me, very comfortable and secure in the ear, the isolation is excellent letting very little noise in on my commute.
    But, whoever designed the cable needs a talking to, it's way too long and so rigid it either sticks out like a pair of wings on the side of your head or the remote is slapping you in the face as you walk. Sound quality is a very personal thing so I'll only say it didn't overly impress me, can’t exactly put my finger on why but you’ll need to judge that for yourselves. I can't see the case doing much to help the longevity of the earphones given the contortions you have to go through to squeeze them in.
    I expected and hoped for better but alas they’ve been returned.
