    The best and the worst

    1. Great sounding headphones. I have owned everything from jaybirds to Bose. These have a really good sound. The Bose are a little more rich in sound. 2. Battery life - they have a good battery life. I can listen to music at the gym for a couple hours then use them as hands free talking the rest of the day. They charge quick. 3. Durability- epic fail. On my 3rd set. Apple has stood behind them and replaced each pair but I expected better quality I guess. The inline volume begins to control itself and can’t be used by the user. The play / stop button is the first to stop working. Then the power button stops responding. You can turn them on but you cant turn them off, then you can’t do anything with it. I bought these in March and the first set lasted until September. Here it is December and on my third set as of today. 4. Love the ability to charge with my lightning charger.

    Not that good

    This Bluetooth Headset is looks very nice, easy to pair and connect, battery life is great, good sound clarity........., But if you are looking for special sound effects don’t buy this product, bass is is very poor

    Sound quality great, but they keep disconneting!

    I love the sound beatsx give, but while they’re connected obviously. I’ve had my beats for about 2 months majority of the time they keep disconnecting from my iPhone 7. The software is up to date so I have no clue whats wrong

    Great for Music but not for Phone Calls

    The BeatsX, when used with proper choice of plugs and the little plastic piece that keeps it in the ear, is great for music. Deep bass, good tonal quality and easy to use. I like the neck band with magnets that keep it in place. However, when used as a microphone, it must be loosened from the ear or else you feel as if you are talking into a chamber with no feedback from outside. This makes it difficult to switch between music and phones. The other problem is the weird positioning of the on-off switch that makes it difficult to connect and turn off to different devices. That was just one star off. The second star off is that with the pair I got and with my iPhone 8, switching between Apps (Music to FaceTime or Music to Phone) sometimes does not work at all. I am sending my pair off for repair and I hope it gets fixed. I think I am getting AirPods.

    beautiful but lacking important feature

    BeatsX is a beautiful product and the sound was amazing. Unfortunately, I returned mine for one very simple yet important reason... when Beats created the product, they didn't build into it the ability to be connected to two devices at one time! So may competitors offer this simple feature and into days mobile and often remote user, being connected to my laptop and my phone at the same time is critical. Too bad too. it is otherwise the best choice out there in my opinion. Hopefully they will "fix" this missing feature in the next upgrade.

    It needs improvements

    The sound quality is good.There two things I really dislike. The first thing I dislike is that the power source is open. There nothing to cover it when it rain. The second thing , the power button is beside your neck . It bother me because I not able to see if It on or off. So sometimes I need to take it off to pair it with my iPhone all over again.

    Not bad overall.

    Pros: -Comfortable -Lightning -Fast Charging Cons: -0 Bass -Lack of sound -Fast Battery Loss Overall not a bad earphones but if you love bass do not even consider buying this earphones they are tremendously bad at bass. Simply it just doesn’t have bass.

    Great sound, falls out of ear though.

    The sound quality is obviously excellent with Beats, but for some reason the left ear of my headphones never stays in my ear. Tried all different sizes and it still falls out. More frustrating that anything. Great headphones other wise.

    Discouraged

    I was so happy to purchase my beats x but as soon as 3 months hit they started acting up. This will be my third pair and last try to see if they stop messing up after 3 months . Every 3 months I call apple for a replacement because they stop working . And the case that’s provided for them is not a good case it should be changed to like a small pouch or purse or a hard case because this case really sucks and can be part of why they get damaged as well .over all they sound great just don’t last longer than 3 months before you have to report it to Apple .

    good design but Poor quality

    I really like the design of this product and the quick charging of it. However, this earphone always has some problems in turning on/off. Within eight months, I already have three of them failed to turn on or connect to devices anymore. Actually, I do not use it often and I am very careful to this small delicate product. So I guess it must be the quality problem.

    For the third one, I only use once and It is failed to turn on. Really angry about the bad experience on beats products! Right now, it is still in the warranty time, and the only thing I can do is contact Apple and change to new one. I really worried about the time after the warranty. I feel like that I bought a shXt!

    Not loud enuff

    Not loud enuff. The cord needs to be longer for different sizes for different people. I lift weights and have a thick neck so they pop out. There needs to be small medium large x-large length of cord. easy to use. Feels great. Looks good but still not loud enuff.

    Good sound, bad fit

    I was pleased when I saw that the package came with multiple sizes of earbuds and even wingtips to help secure the headphones in your ear. I have smaller ears, so I use the smallest size of ear tips, which DON'T FIT with the small wingtip. So I can either wear ear tips too big with wingtips or ear tips that fit and fall out. At least the sound is good.

    BATTERY LIFE

    Overall good sound but horrible battery life.. it's 2017 beats and apple should not make products unless their top shelf.. 10 hour minimum should be standered...

    Nice fit but controls are a little off

    Fit well and great for mountain bike. I also use these for call, too. First pair quit working after a few months. I little difficulty getting them replace but a cooperative staff at the Apple store and a couple of weeks and I have a replacement. Controls work better, too.

    Apple support is pretty good. I have numerous Apple products and never had an issue, just with Beats X but they took care of me.

    They STINK!

    This headphones are way too expensive for the poor quality of sound, I'm so disappointed on them I gave them up and went back to the regular apple headphones, my advice: Don't waste your money on this, the only good feature is that they are wireless, that's it. ������������

    No Sound notification while Call Connect or Disconnect

    Hi All, BeatsX Headphones after my 12 days of extensive use are missing the following: a) Sound Notification for Call connect or disconnect b) Information on the amount of battery remaining (no light indicator, as its next to impossible to see the indicator while you have the Beatsx Headphones on you) c) Allow connecting atleast 2 Bluetooth devices at any time (Bose and other leading Bluetooth headphones allow connecting to 2 Bluetooth) It's a bit frustrating to connect every time when I swap between my iPad and Android phone. d) An application that allows to perform soft level customization. Beats team to enlighten my knowledge if you already have solution to the above.

    Good quality and easy pairing. Some drawbacks

    As expected the material and quality of the headphones are high. The easy pairing with iPhone and my MacBook Pro a dream as well. Two draw backs however give them a rating of 3 stars from me. Microphone is very wind sensitive, almost annoying and considering giving them back. Although not targeted for runners I gave them a try and the design with the neckband doesn't always work for me. Sometimes (mostly in head wind) the neck band falls out of place.

    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.
