    Could be better

    Purchased on 5/9/2017 and today 5/25/2017 they wont turn on or charge. Ive tried to reset them and still nothing... $150 is a lot of money to waste on a product that is supposed to be a top of the line product.... now I have to be inconvenienced by sending them back to apple and wait for them to do something about it. BTW the battery life does not give 8 hours of playback I was only getting about 4 hours before they died on me.

    Sound is great - fall out of my ears though

    I love the sound, the overall idea, and how well it works with Apple products, but the part that goes in your ear constantly falls out and/or I am constantly pushing them back in. I've tried all of the different sizes. Almost wish they made a hard ear bud instead of these rubber ones. Maybe accessories down the road?

    No Bass Whatsoever

    I wanted to love the Beatsx so much- even trying them out multiple times in the store, but I just couldn't take the sound quality. These earbuds have NO bass whatsoever. I am shocked at those who are stating that the sound quality is awesome- because it sounds like you're hearing music out of a tin can- the music sounds hollow! As far as comfort and design, these are great. But there are earbuds that are a lot cheaper and sound 10x better. Returned them after 1 day. Would give the 2 1/2 stars if I could.

    Fantastic w/ iPhone, not so much w/ MBP

    I bought a pair of BeatsX to solve a problem: Not being able to lean back in an office chair when a wired pair of headphones are connected (not possible when MBP is on a stand hooked up to a monitor). To be completely fair, BeatsX works fantastic when using with my iPhone 7, e.g., battery life is great, noise canceling, definitely a step up in sound quality from the stock earbuds, but those weren't the goals with this purchase. Improving my office experience was. When connected to a 2015 MBP retina, there's a very noticeable failure in sound every other second. The best way I can relate this experience is by comparing it to listening to a heavily scratched DVD. If you're buying to use this product with an iPhone, I totally recommend, but if you're buying for office use with a Macbook Pro, I recommend looking at other Apple (because of W1 chip) products.

    Somewhat Disappointed

    The earbuds look great very minimal & sleek. They fit in my ears very well too. My only issue is the sound quality. I expected it to be louder & have more bass boost especially for a new product

    BROKE AFTER A MONTH

    These would have been really great headphones with great sound quality and design. However, after about a month, the right ear stopped working. I paid £130 for a product that only has a lifetime of a month. Pathetic! Of course I took care of them (given the price) and stored them in the case provided but they aren't durable enough to survive that! Great shame as they are very good otherwise. I would only recommend these if you rarely use them. Maybe they can survive that. After both of my Beats products breaking (Solo2 Wireless did too), I think I may have to switch to a brand that can cope with usual day-to-day use.

    Great design, tinny sound

    I do pretty intense workouts and really need wireless headphones connected by a little cable. These hit all the marks: sleek gray, easy connection to iphone, great battery charging and life. Except...the sound is super tinny and has zero base. The default iphone headphones that come with the phone have a far more balanced sound than these. Adjusting the equalizer created even more distortion and severely limited the volume. I listen to them because the form factor really works for me, but eventually I'll probably get tired of the sound and get some Jaybirds.

    Great sound and connectivity

    The sound quality and ease of connectivity is superb but the mic and connection during phone calls is questionable. Audio randomly switches from the headphones back to the phone and the mic does not pick up well. I do recommend the headphones but if you talk on your phone often, this might not be an ideal choice.

    I can hear my footsteps echoing

    Never understood the hype about beats - still don't after buying these. They're fine if you're sitting down, but I don't know how all these athletes in the commercials are working out with them because I hear every single step I take when I'm walking with them. Even with the smallest ear caps my ears get sore after awhile. I've had them less than a week and have I mentioned an ear cap has already popped off and gone missing?

    Not Recommended for Northerners

    My fully charged BeatsX earphones quit working about 5 minutes into my walk this morning. It was 10 degrees F. Apparently the battery cannot take the cold. That's a bummer for those of use who live in New England, because they cannot be used during outdoor activities in the winter.

    Otherwise the only real problem with them is some cable noise ("microphonics"). I guess that's one advantage of the Apple AirPods.

    Overall, they deliver as promised. They don't sound as good or as accurate as my trusty Sony MDR 7506 ($90) but they are more convenient.

    Beats X Need Improvement

    They have great sound and are comfortable but do need improvement. I purchased these headsets but when talking through the headset the person on the other end keeps telling me they can't hear me. Can't seem to switch from my iphone to ipad to ipod. This needs to be fixed or at least tell me where I can find how to do this. The Bose wireless are great, they switch from one device to another seamlessly, can always be heard when taking a call. I love the voice that tells me what I am connected to, when to charge, etc. Apple should design a headset more like the above.

    It's only ok

    I expected BeatsX to impress me with good sound quality and exceptional battery life. The output doesn't sound stereo like. I have a 6+ and tried switching out the equalizer trying to find the best sound but to no avail; I still haven't found the best sound output for these earbuds. I also switched out the earbud pads that came with it maybe that'll help but it didn't.

    The flexible neck band is very nice for workouts and running so that's a plus. The battery claim of up to 8 hours is hit or miss. I use it all day at work for a good 10-12 hours and I'm yet to see it go past 6 hours. The Fast Fuel does help after charging it for 5-10 mins, it'll give you at least 2 hours or less, so that's accurate. There's a problem with overnight charging though. After charging it overnight, I noticed a "trickle" discharge even if the earbuds are turned off. I noticed this a few times after turning it on, it displays either 98% or 97% on the battery meter. This is somewhat accurate but I can't say for sure because of my experience of less than the advertised battery life of up to 8 hours. Overall, it's decent enough to get 3 stars from me.

    Battery stand by time.

    I've been waiting awhile for BeatsX wireless available since announced in last Sep 2016.

    Finally this BeatsX arrived. After few days play around with it, my concerns for this product is stand by time.

    I have several BT earphones such as Sony SBH-80, Samsung U Pro ANC, etc. With those BT earphones, stand by time quite good when not in use.
    Let's say you charged them, use them for 1-3 hours and leave them alone for few days, then pick them up and use in couple hours. And during stand by period, battery drains out very little. let's say 5-10% in few days.

    Apple claimed 08 hours battery life but didn't mention about stand by time. My BeatsX last less than 02 days in mixed use and stand by.

    Anyone please give me some update about stand by time when you using BeatsX.

    Thanks,

    Not Worth it for the price

    To begin with I feel these earphones are overpriced & should be no more than $100. The W-1 chip isnt that special & connect to my iPhone just as fast or a bit slower than my SOL Republic shadow wireless earphines. Next the volume is low on these earphones. I find myself having to almost max out the volume to get a desirable sound. These dont sound bad at all but these have more of a flat sound. I feel there are better earphones on the market for a cheaper price such as the SONY EXTRA BASS earphones ($99 wireless) ($29.99 Wired versions) that sound so much better & louder than the beatsx & definitely have more bass! If you are a bass head like myself your will absolutely love those earphones over these, and also save money as well. Definitely a better bang for your buck. After discovering the Sony extra bass earphones, I returned the beatsx the same day. For the beatsx you're mainly paying for marketing and Bluetooth connectivity features.

    Bad Sound quality

    I am kind of disappointed with Beats. Even though the built in software is very well developed together with iOS 10, and all the cool stuff like quick charge and long battery life they just not do well what they are supposed to. I was hoping that they would have the same sound quality as any Beats, however, later on I found out that they did not. The sound is very sharp and really not soft, specially when playing music that have bass on it, and considering the price $200CA after taxes it does not really worth it.

    Beats X review

    The quality of the beats x sound pretty good, coming from the UR Beats earphones this was a downgrade, (as for the volume) the bass has definitely been turned down a lot as well. I was thinking about turning these back in but I can't beat the fact that they have the class 1 Bluetooth and the apple W1 chip.

    Can't multi-task, how much juice u got?

    Where to begin? Pretty basic specs left off. At this price range, I expected better. I will be returning mine this weekend. 1. Where's the battery indicator or level? 2. Can't pair to two devices at the same time? No ipad gaming or movie streaming and still being able to hear audible notifications or answer phone calls on your iphone. Epic FAIL. Maybe they should have studied any of the plantronics backbeats models. Jaybird X3 anyone? 3. No mute button or ability to mute call. 4. $.50 cost neoprene earbud case. These dopes couldn't even design a case large enough hold your pods w/o having to take a pHD course from Ikea Orgami University. Dust and lint magnet too. Great case for picking up the dog or cat hair on your couch or clothes. 5. 3 month delay and you couldn't have thought about a solution for items #1 or #2? Buyer beware!

    Earbud/Eartip Issues

    The Earphones are great, don't get me wrong. I am enthralled with the neck design, the connectivity, and audio. All that is completely diminished for me by the ear tips alone. I have tried all the sizes that come with the Beats X, which is great that they offer several sizes, but they all hurt my ears too much to make this a satisfying purchase. I have ordered Comply replacement ear tips, so I'm hopeful that the investment in these Beats X Earphones are worth it after all. I was always comfortable wearing the EarPods, but I really didn't like the design of the newer AirPods. I'll update when I get the replacement tips in.

    Terrible eartips

    I was really happy about this earphones. Connection to iPhone is seamless, BUT they won´t connect to my Apple Watch and also eartips broke first time I tried to take them off to replace them with different size. Terrible build quality :-/

    Sound quality is disappointing

    I'm coming from the urbeats, which I thought would be a great advancement being that these look like them but are just wireless. The quality of base is terrible. The wired versions to these sound 10x better. And there's no adjuster for the wire. Love the new look but these could've been a lot better sound quality wise.
