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:...

BeatsX Wireless In-Ear Headphones Review


Beats has been killing it lately. Their Powerbeats3 and Solo3 wireless headphones both earned Chip Chick Picks for being top notch wireless headphones in their respective categories. After a delay, their lightweight BeatsX in-ear headphones are finally...

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.

Beats X bring Apple’s wireless headphone tech to a tethered form factor


It's hard to say precisely what took Beats X so long to arrive. Unlike Apple's own house-branded AirPods, the company didn't really start from scratch. Sure, it's a somewhat new form factor, but the wireless earbuds don't stray all that far from the...

At $150, the Beats X are just a hair under the AirPods. In spite of the company’s big “No Strings” ad campaign, they’re ultimately not as flashy as Apple’s primary offering, lacking some of the more refined interface and noise-canceling design. They’re...

Expert review by: avec Karyl AIT KACI ALI (



Avec leur design séduisant, les BeatsX sont des écouteurs sans fil type bandeau qui offrent pas mal de la magie des AirPods d'Apple dans une configuration plus conventionnelle et propice au sport.

Confortables, légers, résistants à l’eau, offrent un son de bonne qualité, l’ergonomie des oreillettes, l’appairage avec les terminaux Apple est instantané, se roulent pour être rangés dans une pochette de transport, se chargent rapidement via un port...

Des basses et médiums un peu trop prononcés, les cordons que certains utilisateurs trouveront un peu longs

Bien qu’ils ne soient pas parfaits, les BeatsX offrent une bonne part des avantages des AirPods, du moins pour les utilisateurs de produits Apple : la connexion automatique et la charge par connecteur Lightning. Leur design compact permet de les ranger...

Beatsx: Apples nya trådlösa smiskar Airpods på de flesta punkter


Den hårda plasten som Apple brukar använda sig av i sina egna hörlurar är ärligt talat inte särskilt bekvämt att ha i öronen. Beatsx har däremot kuddar av silikongummi, vilket känns betydligt skönare. Du får fyra olika storlekar med på köpet, så det är...

Inte beroende av Siri ; Bekväm passform och bra ljud

Är inte lika trådlösa som Airpods

Great quality from Beats


This is the second set of Beats in ear headphones I've owned and the sound quality is great in comparison to the older pair. Very easy to pair with your device and a great design all round.

Broke after two weeks


There has been many complains of these braking after two weeks, (read the Apple website) I hadn't seen this before I purchased them, and mine did Infact only last two weeks. I'm now on my second pair. But beware, Argos won't replace them, they have to...

Amazing for iPhone 7


I have got the iPhone 7 and I can finally charge and listen to my phone at the same time. Good sound but just odd shape of the ear phone
