    The best pair of headphones I've owned in a long time.

    So I recently bought a pair of apple AirPods which I love. But they don't cancel any outside noise so in a crowded place so you can't hear anything. Now the beats X are a different story. Although not "wireless" it helps you not losing them. It has incredible noise cancellation for earbuds. Its not very hidden but makes you look normal as the AirPods make you look like an alien. In the package includes different types of earbuds and hooks for your ears. As it has bluetooth it has the W1 chip installed. This allows for easy pairing with an iPhone. It charges through a lightning port but does not include a brick for the usb, it takes roughly 3 hours for a full charge. There is a case included with the earbuds, but it does not help whatsoever. You may as well stuff them in your pocket. For $10 less than the AirPods its a pretty good deal. If you want noise cancelling, good looking and great sounding earbuds then look no further.

    Returned

    received the item today and returned it today.

    Don't like the string around my neck.

    The sound quality not quite as I expected. When return it in the Apple Store, I tried the new AirPods which is much more better in sound quality than this Bests X. I have order that instead.

    It gradually grows on you

    First when i got my headphones i was not happy with the sound, i guess it was because i was used to Marshall headphones. But after a week with it, the convenience of it, the gradually adapting sound and the easiest pairing. After a week the sound changed i guess it adapted the songs i had in my playlist, i don't know what but it now feels good. yes it not that bassy but its natural. I would like to say that if u are looking for a bass heavy headphones don't go for it but if u want a casual everyday natural sounding bluetooth headphones with the convenience offered it is definitely worth it. BLUE is the way to go.

    Beats X earphones

    These headphones were easy to set up and great sound quality. I'm happy with this expensive purchase.
    By the way they come with a 3 month free trial to Apple Music.

    Waited but now disappointed

    I waited a long time for these to be introduced. I ordered them immediately and upon receiving them was somewhat disappointed. I had several issues with them dropping calls. Then when I was listening to music no matter what the volume was, when a call came in it the ring would be full blast and blow out my eardrums. The tone quality was less than I expected, I have a pair of the corded beats and the tone quality is much better. Tried to work with AppleCare in rectifying the problem with no success, so I sent them back.

    Nice headphones, They do everything I want

    I've had these a few days and I really like them. The new W1 chip is a deal breaker over any other bluetooth device. Pairs instantly and easily with all of your Apple devices and switching is extremely easy. I was thinking about the Ear-pods but I don't like the fact that they only have one button to either stop music or activate Siri. Beats X has volume control and play/pause/ Siri control. Sound is very good, They are very lightweight and you can carry them around your neck all day and forget they are there with the back to back magnet connection. Battery life is as advertised for 8 hours and they fully charged less than an hour.

    only ok, SO overpriced

    the sound is flat & tinny. there isn't a battery level indicator when connected to my iphone. today was the first day i had them for work & the fully charged battery lasted the whole work day (for me) & fully recharging did take less than an hour. these fit well and are extremely comfortable in my ears; the hard plastic apple earbuds chafe my ears to the point of bleeding so this is a nice change for me. they don't shift on my neck too much so they are less annoying than my $13 wireless pair in that aspect. i only use 1 bud at a time (so i can hear what's going on around me) but the shape of the airpods literally make my ears bleed so i couldn't get those. if apple made the AirPods shaped like beatsx i totally would have bought them instead so i could use 1 at a time while the other charged without having the annoying rubber band around my neck. the sound on my cheap-o wireless earbuds is WAY better than these, but a full charge only lasted about 4 hours and they shift on my neck a lot. i guess the trade off is subpar sound for not having to recharge during my work day.

    Best wireless earbuds and cool looks

    Absolutely easy pairing especially if you have a iOS device, sound clarity was good, great fit with various sizes of earbuds and ear wings, decent amount of battery life and fast fuel charge 5 min=2 hrs battery life makes life easy with lightening port, definitely recommended.

    Decent Pair of Bluetooth Earphones

    I have been using the BeatsX (blue) since taking delivery from Apple.com several days ago. My initial impression is positive. The Xs paired flawlessly with my iThingies and volume never had to be raised greater than mid-level. Phone call clarity is good. The phones fit well and are comfortable. The design is balanced with one apparent flaw: the Lightning jack is exposed inferring potential damage from sweat or water. They offer reasonable passive sound isolation--even while riding the NYC subway--as long as the earpieces are set properly in the ear canal. Bass response is somewhat tamed compared to most Beats products but still adequate even for EDM fans. Unfortunately flatter bass response appears to have resulted in an increase in simbilance. Vocals however never sound harsh. Overall, sound appears somewhat veiled and sounds clearly heard on my reference wired phones (Shure 846) are subdued or laid-back on the Xs. Soundstage is decent with instruments and vocals sufficiently placed in space. Although far from perfect, the BeatsX offer an overall pleasant musical experience across my eclectic mix of music including EDM, Alternative, Adult, and Pop. As long as you are aware of the limitations of the current state of Bluetooth technology and the hefty premium you must pay for wireless over a comprable sounding pair of wired phones, the BeatsX is highly recommended.

    Excellent Fit, Great Sound, Long Battery

    I was very excited when these were first announced. I was sad that it took so long for it to finally come out... Before they did, I got a chance to try the AirPods. They sounded good, but I could hear everything. On my commute, the noise of the train overtook the noise of the music. That, and in my quiet office, people around me could hear the music leak if I had the volume set to anything higher than 4 out of 10.

    Then these came along. They create a wonderful seal that blocks noise; "noise isolation" is what it's called. They sound crisp. They are comfortable. They don't bother those around me, and honestly, you can't feel them when wearing them.

    I highly recommend people give these a try. They are fantastic and well worth the wait.

    WOW!!! Fantastic sound

    wow, These things are off the hook , very loud, crisp and very comfortable in the ears, can not even tell you wearing them, i have 6 pairs of head phones and these are far ahead of all of them (bowers, B&O, R.H.A , jaybirds, apple ear bud) these beat all those. Was able to go about 60 feet without any static and there was walls in the way so the sound does not drop at all, very easy to pair with apple equipment, did not try on android cause i am bias towards apple! i wold pick these of the airs pods only cause they are more comfortable and they have the color i like!

    Worth the Wait!!

    I was in the market for wireless earphones and was tempted for many products. But then when I heard about Beats X, I thought let's wait to see what it has to offer. And then I was amazed. The sound quality is amazing, it has the bass and the Noise Isolation is noteworthy. It has the best in eat fit and I have tried it while on a treadmill and they don't fall off. The neckband is a little rigid, but the sound quality lets you totally ignore it. If you are looking to get wireless earphones, I would Beats X is your answer. Trust me I have done a lot of research on wireless earphones.
