    Imbalanced sound

    The sound in the right ear is about half the left side. I know it isn't me as my wife noticed the same thing. They sound eerily similar to the free headphones that come with your iPhone. Very disappointed. They will be going back to the store.

    Excellent connectivity

    The connection of the headphones to the iPhone couldn't be easier. Also, outside (where bluetooth always seems to fail), these did not cut out once on a 7km walk in the city. These are the first bluetooth headphones I have used that can say that. They fit well, but I could see some people not liking the look of the long cords down the side of your head, but that is minor. Only gripes, sound could be better (though are much better than the wired pods that come with your phone - they just aren't top tier quality, but good regardless). Also, the button for the pause/play is recessed, which when wearing gloves, makes it difficult to press properly (minor issue and I have an Apple Watch, so it's not a huge deal). Next generation, if the headphones were able to pause/sleep when magnetically held together, slightly better sound and raise the button - it would make it a 5 star in my books.

    GOOD...But could be greatly improved...

    First thing, packaging is great as always, Comes with plenty of ear-tips/wing tips. And carrying case, although it feels a little flimsy.

    Earphones feel great, and are very comfortable, although I find the neckband/wire feels far too long, when in my ears they hang down very far by the side of my face, which can be a little annoying.

    Great battery life and connectivity with Apple W1 chip.

    Great Sound

    I have only had them for a few hours. They are not quite as loud as I thought they would be however, I have a listened to about six different genres of music in the dynamic range is very good. They seem to block out all of the background noise and you just hear the music. I have had a few conversations on the phone while driving down the road and nobody seem to know that I was on a Bluetooth device. Hook up was quite easy On my iPhone 6 Plus. So far I am very pleased.

    Nice sound, very comfortable headphones

    As a long time iPhone owner I always wanted an Apple wireless headphone set that was light, easy to pair with all other devices, the Beats X is exactly what I was looking for.

    I'm not an audiophile, I mostly listen to pop, salsa and podcasts, not necessarily in that order, the Beats X now allow me to get off my car and seamlessly go from my car's bluetooth to the headphones without missing a beat.

    I am sure there would be plenty of discussion about the price, sound etc., but if you are looking for good sound, ease of use and not a bad price, these are the headphones for you or at least the Apple fan.

    Best wireless earphones on the market!

    I've gone through plenty of wireless headphones over the past year. Once these were announced I was very excited. Beats have always had a great balanced sound and the bass is amazing. These earphones are possibly the best wireless earphones on the market. Compared to the other earphones out currently, they have a nice clean sound and fit insanely comfortable. Now I'm not sure about how long they'll last but the build quality seems great. If you'd ask me I'd recommend them to anyone who is in market for wireless earphones.

    Not sure about the 8 hours battery!

    I've been listening music for 2 hours and I already have 49%.
    I don't know what they mean by 8 hours of battery life.
    Other than that, I love them, very light, you can't even feel that its around your neck. Sound quality its as usual GOOD. Depends what size eartips you wear you will notice a difference on sound and bass.
    They are very steady in my ears, perfect for jogging or gym work outs.
    Easy to pair it with your Apple devices.

    Early days yet but...

    I've been waiting for these for months but well worth the wait... easy set up with all my apple devices but more importantly the sound is amazing and really comfortable. I was looking for a go between of casual all round day-to-day use and also good for the gym (even with out the wing tips for stability) these as suspected are perfect. Stoked.

    Love the features

    I had been waiting for these headphones for a long time. I liked the concept that these would easily connect to all my apple products without any effort on my part. What really got me going was the 5 minute fast charge, which saves me from having to remember to charge these before I go to the gym (I can wait 5 minutes for a 2 hr charge). Even better, they charge using a lightning connector, so once less cord to carry with me when I travel.

    I also like the heavy duty cord holding the headphones together. It feels like they will last a long time and will not get tangled when I shove them in my pocket.

    In terms of sound quality, these are an improvement over the headphones that come with iPhone, but I would not call it an earth shattering difference. Obviously the noise isolation nature of these helps improve the sound and I think they've compensated for any loss of quality over the bluetooth connection. I'm happy so far and would recommend them.

    Very comfy,but sound just like my earpods,I don't understand what's different with them and I have perfect hearing,I had rha 750i which sounded not much different than earpods which are free,and these two costs 150$ ,but the difference is hardly noticable!
    Wtf guys,maybe they should like play for a day or two to be better?But anyway.
