    BeatsX in grey

    • Written by Anson M from Oakland

    In-ears are not for everyone as some of the reviewers have experienced. Unless you get a tight seal the sound quality will be horrible. Once you do, however, the BeatsX deliver a quality sound experience, somewhat V shaped, definitely not flat, but fun! To my ears they are very well well priced, especially at the low street price. Again, to my ears, they also sound way, way better than AirPods, but I've always felt this way about decent in-ears vs any type of bud that just sits there. Because physics, and acoustics.

    If your ears can get a good seal and you need reasonable – better than AirPod but not great – battery life, very good sound isolation in a wireless package then I highly recommend the BeatsX. My only negative is the overall length of these. I would prefer if they were a good 6 to 12 inches shorter as they hang down far too much IMO, leading at times to microphonics as they bang around on my jacket when walking. Also, if you are on the phone 8 hours a day at the office, these are not for you. 4 to 6 hours spread over the day, sure, as they have a quick charge that will add 2 hours in just minutes.

    I believe there is a feature missing from the BeatsX that other wireless headphones may have: ability to mute the phone from the earphone control. In my experience, the BeatsX can't do this, so it's a miss in this respect.

    they've changed

    • Written by julie K from TORONTO

    I have 2 pairs of the original BeatsX (one of which had to be replaced) and both came with ear wings to keep the buds secure and a case. These do not although they are the SAME price. I never used the cases so I don't care but I do use the wing tips on my other pairs...hopefully I will not need them on this new pair. Maybe they have redesigned the fit subtly so they no longer need the tips?
    Anyway, I just assumed I was buying the same product BeatsX as I already had as there is no mention of a "new" version (just a new colour- Satin Silver...so I thought people might want to know those 2 accessories are no longer included.

    Great quality!

    • Written by Cameron H from Columbus

    I have had these headphones for about 10 months now and they have worked perfectly! The sound quality and noise cancellation has worked great and not gone down over time. My one issue is the battery life, it only lasts for about 6 hours for a full charge, which is a decent amount of time and works fine for me every day, but you have to remember to charge them nightly!

    Not worth it

    • Written by CHRISTEN S from Buffalo

    Sorry, but these are not worth the price. I'd rather have the Apple AirPods. The sound quality is total garbage. They are awkward fitting as well. Glad I got them free with my purchase of a MacBook Pro.

    Im absolutely disgusted and shocked with these Beats. I spent 200$ on them and they barely last 1 year and a half. I was constantly having problems connecting them with my iPhone X, I had to press the power button at least 3 times to pair them up. They stopped working all of the sudden because the battery wasn’t working. The light didn’t turned on and that was that. The reason why theses headphones deserve a star is because the sound quality wasn’t too bad. I don’t know if this is some strategy from Apple to make more money but this is sad. Hopefully, they will find a way to make Beats will last longer than expected.

    50/50 - Not as good for Business use good or kids for music

    • Written by John G from Macomb

    Good: Sound quality
    Good: Magnet to hold when not in use around my neck
    Good: Look and feel
    Bad: Disconnecting during calls - re- pairing etc...
    Bad Battery life - is not optimal for day long business use.
    Bad: Durability: Just less than 1 year and I had to send them in for repair/replacement which apple handled the way that Apple does so that's cool I guess.

    Summary: I expected more for the price and the fact that Apple was the one selling the product.
    Perhaps I just bought the wrong type of earbuds for my needs. I bought a pair for my 15 year old and he has not complained to me - he has not complained so I'd say 3 stars depending on your needs.

    Very bad product

    • Written by Shabir K from Singapore

    Bought 1 year ago, had to go to apple care 3 times to get a replacement. 4th time it worked for a few months longer than the previous times but ended spoilt again. Tried apple care again and could not get it repaired as warranty expired. Would not recommend anyone to buy.

    Is apple cost cutting again ? Please respond publicly Apple

    • Written by MILES K from Brockenhurst

    So apple are a great company we know who don’t want to waste environmental sources

    The beats x wireless now come in a plain shop box rather than the big box with the plastic see through front we are used to seeing,

    I hope apple �� come clean or just say it’s for the environment as the old pouches are made of rubber silicone so I know apple are trying to help the environment but to still have a picture showing the case is still included is slightly misleading but not by apples intentions according to customer relations!

    So for anyone wanting these new beats x wireless

    They are now called (beats x)

    Included in the box is the earphones

    1 set of changeable tips

    And charging cable

    No pouch
    No wingtips for sports /: that one is a downer however I’m sure it will be made public soon enough

    Brilliant sound and great using of minimal packaging

    Great headphones. Stay in your ear, unlike the beats that are $80 more and wrap around your ear, ironically. Sound quality is great and they block out a lot of noise.
