Beats X Wireless Earphones review


Meet some good-sounding earbuds that can charge in five minutes

Snug, but comfortable, fit ; Quick Charge feature ; Balanced sound signature

Relatively expensive ; Lacking in clarity

The BeatsX are a solid pair of in-ear headphones. They might not have the highest clarity of any earbuds we’ve ever met, but that’s something they make up for with supreme comfort, smart iOS integration and a surprisingly effective Quick Charge feature.

Beats X review


Energetic and full - as you'd expect from Beats - but you can get better at this price

Great wireless performance ; iPhone-tailored hardware ; Smart, simple look ; Energetic sound

Limited detail ; Shouty midrange

A fine Bluetooth performance, but the Xs' energetic delivery lacks insight

Beats X review: Apple's neckbuds for the everyday


The new $150 Beats X wireless earbuds have taken a backseat to Apple's AirPods ever since both products were announced at the same event last September. The truly wireless AirPods got a Jony...

Comfortable enough to wear all day ; W1 chip makes life simpler for Apple customers ; Fantastic noise isolation

Average sound quality ; Cable between earbuds is too long ; Terrible lint-magnet carrying case

Apple's other wireless earbuds might be a better fit for you than the AirPods

BeatsX review


Like 'em or hate 'em, Apple's AirPods have been the talk of the headphone world ever since they were announced alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus back in September 2016. But there's another Apple wireless headphone from the company's Beats by Dre...

The BeatsX is a comfortable, lightweight, water-resistant, neckband-style Bluetooth headphone with a secure in-ear fit and good sound quality. It pairs instantly with Apple devices, rolls up to fit in an included carrying case, and charges quickly via...

Slight treble push; cords may seem a bit long for some users.

The slickly designed BeatsX is an appealing neckband-style wireless headphone that offers a lot of the "magic" of Apple's AirPods in a more conventional, sports-friendly design.

BeatsX earphones may be the cheaper, better AirPods alternative you want (hands-on)


The funky wireless AirPods got all the attention when Apple unveiled it alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on September 7, but it was only part of the company's new headphones lineup. It also showcased three new wireless headphones from its Beats brand:...

The BeatsX in-ear headphones are a wireless Bluetooth pair released in early 2017. With a claimed eight hours of battery life and fast-charging technology, could we finally be seeing a good pair of wireless earphones that will last a full day? Read on...

Beats by Dr. Dre BeatsX Review


Top notch clarity makes for a great listening experience, as long as you're not working out

Incredibly crisp audio, comfortable

Bass relatively weak compared to other high end models, not great for athletics

The Beats by Dr. Dre BeatsX aren't great for sports, but they deliver incredibly crisp audio for general use. If you want to hear all the nuances of a Robert Krulwich monologue, these are the earbuds for you.

Beats X review: The perfect earbuds for young cyborgs with cash to burn


The best wireless earbuds yet?

Good sound quality ; Effortless pairing with Apple products thanks to W1 chip ; Comfortable in all situations, including workouts

Fairly pricey ; Audio isn't 100% perfect ; Gross carrying pouch

Thanks to their more universal design and smooth sound, the Beats X earphones are arguably better than Apple's AirPods, but they don't come cheap.

Review: BeatsX are Apple's most affordable W1 wireless headphones


With BeatsX, Apple takes the best of Beats by Dre's line of minimalist earphones in-ear monitors wireless, incorporating the new W1 chip, top-notch materials and unique Flex Form neck strap into a consumer-friendly design.

Overall, BeatsX is a well-made, decent sounding earphone that works in a variety of environments. Add to that an easy pairing process and solid wireless connection thanks to Apple's W1 chip, and the package becomes even more appealing.
