    Stopped working one week after opening

    I cannot tell you how much I hate the BeatsX earbuds. I have owned Beats Studios and Beats Solos, but these are HORRID. I wanted something light in weight and easy to run with so I bought these. Within one week of me opening the box they would not work. I have already sent these back for a return!!

    Lasted 6 months

    The product itself was good - high quality cordless headphones. I go to the gym every morning and Bluetooth headphones are the way to go. However, after daily use the wire that connected my beats began to tear and no longer played music out of the right headphone. This was also happening in the same spot on the other side, so I knew it wasn’t from me accidentally tearing them. I took them back to Apple (because they are still under warranty) and they told me that was it not covered. While the products original design is not faulty, the product failed to perform for a year after purchase.. They asked if I would like to replace but why would I pay $79 for headphones to last 6 months? The damage is from regular use, so I can only imagine a new pair would do a similar thing. Both customer service reps I spoke with were nice, but can only work in the bounds of Apples warranty. Needless to say I will not purchase another pair of headphones from Apple and if you want your product to last, I would not either.

    Awesome Headset

    Purchased in November 2017. I listen to music at work everyday for a sold 6 hours. I usually need to charge the headset every other day. I've never had an issue connecting the headset to my iPhone 6 or staying connected. Sound is very clear and balanced for both music and phone calls. The freedom of wireless is unbelievable and I'll never go back to wired headset. Very durable headset considering I use them for workouts, cutting grass and I have two small kids that think they're really cool too.

    Mehhh... They're Okay!

    Sound quality = 4 stars -- These sound okay but are not superb to other high-end brands. I have a pair of two-year old [corded] Beats in-ears that sounds just as good (if not better) than the BeastX. The bass isn't the best; although, I don't know if I need too much bass with in-ears -- I like bass!

    Weight = 5 stars -- These are VERY light weight to the point that I forget that I'm wearing them. They don't get in the way and the magnets are perfect for keeping them from falling off without me being aware.

    Easily switch between devices = 3 stars -- I have another pair of over-ear premium headphones that makes it very easy to switch between synced devices directly on the ear cuff. Even though I use my BeatsX with Mac and iOS devices [four to be exact], it requires too many steps to switch between devices. Their manual claims that it's easy to switch by referencing the option while using Apple Music; however, not all apps that create audio have that option readily available on the main user interface. Therefore, I often have to open Settings, then Bluetooth to connect to my [already synced] BeatsX. This poses a real problem when needing to quickly switch between devices!

    Battery life = 3.5 stars -- Apple/Beats claims an 8-hour battery life; however, I haven't experienced that length of availability while streaming music for an 8-hour work day [minus one hour for lunch]. They consistently reach 7% remaining battery (the first low battery alert) at about 7 hours in. I've let them die completely a few times, which clocked in at right about 7.5 hours... Maybe they're rounding up for the "8 hour" battery life claim. I will commend them on the fast charging battery though. Assuming you're able to recharge; you should be good to go with a full battery in about 45 minutes.

    I also noticed that the battery seems to drain a lot faster when they're on, but not in use; therefore, remember to turn them off if you're not actively using them or they'll be 'dead' when you need them. I'd like to see them add an auto shut-off feature [like my other high-end brand of headphones] to conserve battery when not in use!

    Favorite purchase all year

    I got the BeatsX after I upgraded to my iPhone X. I’ve never had wireless headphones but with no headphone jack I figured I had to. I expected to be annoyed by having to keep my earbuds charged. Being able to charge these with a lightning connector makes it super easy. They charge quick and hold a charge. I’ve had them for 6 months. Plug them in for 10 minuets in the morning and they’ve never come close to dying on me. I keep them around my neck with the cool magnets that hold them together and they never get lost. I’m pleasantly surprised my how much I love these earbuds. It’s my favorite purchase all year.

    Clearly a marketing gimmic.

    Dre should be ashamed to associate with such terrible sound. OMG they sound like an am radio from the 70s. If they won’t take them back I will throw the two pair I bought today...away. Sad sad sad. Feel good look good, sound BAD !!! Apple ear pods are 5x the sound. Shame on you all!!!

    Very dissapointed that my headphones stopped working after 1 year.

    I was very pleased with the quality of the headphones but was very disappointed when they broke down after having them for only 1 year. I purchased on 5/10/17 and they stopped working on 5/14/18. Now I have been told that I need to purchase a new pair or replace the pair for $80.00 which is ridiculous since I take very good care of my headphones and they stopped working due to something defective with their product. The fact that they stopped working after a year does not make me feel confident in purchasing or replacing because how am I guaranteed that they will not break down after a year again.

    Should last longer than 14 months

    Honestly these were the best earphones I had ever owned until they decided to stop working in the right ear just after the warranty expired. I'm very gentle with my electronics. I used them yesterday morning and they were fine. In the afternoon audio was only coming out of the left ear. They still charge fine and every other thing functions except I get no audio from the right earphone. 150 bucks is a lot of money to have to spend on wireless buds once a year. I'm really bummed about this. If you're lucky this won't happen to you. I was hopeful about these. They seemed sturdy.

    Don't last

    Bought these, used them for about 4 months and then the led was flashing red and they stopped working. Worked great with my iPhone 7plus, untill they broke. Very inconvenient.

    So much potential...

    I bought my Beat's X headphones for myself around Christmas time, and don't get me wrong, I do love them - however, they need some serious improvements. After about 6 months with the Beats x and working out around 5/6 times a week with them, I have steadily noticed the decline in sound quality - and that quality was NOT great in the beginning. However, the fatal flaw for me, is the length of the cord that goes around my neck! IT IS WAY TOO LONG. It hangs too far, and when doing horizontal workouts, the earbuds pull right out of my ears (ouch) because the long wire is pulling them. There is so much potential here for the Beats x, but I would not recommend them for working out - especially weight lifting.

    Just blinking

    Worked fine for a while and suddenly start disconnecting and end up by blinking 3 times and going off, and the warranty worth nothing, the agent just resetting it and denying any problem

    Completely floored with the BeatsX!!! πŸ˜‹πŸ€—πŸ€˜

    Best pair of wireless headphones yet!! I'm not a big Beats fan at all, but now I'm a true believer! Still a little skeptical of the Portable Speakers, but for these, are the Bee's Nee's...

    Not as good as it look

    I have this when it was first release but it just went dead after 1 month of normal usage. Luckily it was covered by warranty and i was given a replacement. Now after a year of usage, it just went dead again. No abuse just normal usage. Went to the store and was told that i need to pay to get a replacement that only provide 3 month warranty. No way i am going to spend that kind of money on something not reliable. Do a search on the internet and you will see all the problems associate with this product.

    I've been through several of these in a little over a year...

    The Beats X unfortunately do not hold up. I have had to replace mine several times in the last 14 months and my latest pair just became defective within a month.

    Pair #1: Stopped charging after about three month. Replaced by warranty.
    Pair #2: Sound on one side dropped about 50%. Replaced by warranty.
    Pair #3: Same as above.
    Pair #4: OK, I lost this one.
    Pair #5: Some sort of pinched wire situation in under a month (movement, touching the cable, etc. causes static/sound cut out).

    It's a shame because I found the sound quality excellent and loved the fact that it uses Lightning to charge.

    Terrible..stay away !!

    Short version of this review, it’s terrible in every sense of the word!

    The long version:
    (1)- battery life: they lied as they claimed it will stay at least 7-8 hours on a single charge , in my testing on full charge 50% volume it only stayed for 5 hours and 30 minutes, I went back to the store, no one gave me any sort of attention and they said it’s just alright!!
    (2)- the control button is so laggy!! You can press double clicks to ff a song, its not responding, instead it plays or pause or trigger siri or whatever!!
    (3)- 3 months after I bought it, the battery literally died, I sent it to be repaired, they examined it and told me there’s a scratch on the inner frame which means it’s now damaged it’s out of warranty. They didn’t repair it and asked me to pay +80 dollars without the taxes to be repaired!!
    (4)- spoiler alert: That was the second one as I bought one 1 week ago and it kept draining so fast like 30 minuets after a single full charge and replaced it for me!!! They said it’s very common manufacturing defect !!!
    (5)- it’s classic beats headphones.. which means over priced tech, garbage quality.. literally garbage quality, it’s no way compared to other headphones out there and half the price!!

    Stay away

    Good connectivity, adequate sound

    If you have $150, and you want (reliable) bluetooth connectivity, a sleek design, comfortable ergonomics, and a brand name bluetooth earbud, this is it. The Beats X has the best bluetooth connectivity I've ever had in a pair of earbuds. The battery is adequate for the slim size, and the around the neck fit is perfect. I had a neck collar device at one point, not cute. These, are. The sound quality is meh, but the feature list for the price is very good. If you want pure sound quality for $150, get a wired pair from a lesser known brand.

    P.S. just use common sense...if you have had bluetooth issues before and hate bluetooth, don't buy these. If you run a lot with these, don't cry when they break (not workout buds), if you don't like cords, but a pair of all wireless, if you can barely afford them, don't buy them. You'll be wanting better sound quality, which you can get with cheaper wired buds. If you don't like beats, these won't impress you.

    Do not buy.

    I tried to give the beats the benefit, they worked for two weeks and I had connection problems after being fully charged. Get the Apple wireless earbuds, it a little more expensive but worth.

  • 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not reliable

    Like others, I enjoyed these headphone while they worked. My first pair lasted less than two weeks. The battery died and I was unable to recharge them or reset the headphones. The second pair lasted about a year but then the right earbud suddenly stopped working. It has no sound at all. I treat these very well. They are in the case when not used and I typically only use them at the gym 3 times a week.

    If they didn’t keep breaking, I’d give them 4-5 stars. The sound quality is good. They come with a variety of earbud and wing tip sizes to customize your fit. However I think the cord is too long, there’s a lot of extra cord hanging around the neck, and the case it comes with is not very easy to use or protective.

  • 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not Worth It

    Chord is too long, gets in the way. For the buds to fit comfortably secure in my ears I had to press them in such that I felt pressure. They very easily popped out when I was lifting weights and every time I adjusted the volume the bud would pop out. Not worth $120 (bought them on sale.) Used them 3 times before cuz I wanted to give it a chance and by that time I wasn't able to return them. Rip.
