Reasons Why You Should Buy Them

  • Beats X is a natural-sounding wireless pair of earbuds with rich bass levels complemented by solid clarity in the treble 
  • The earplugs go much deeper into the ear canal than some other competing models and create passive noise isolation that blocks most of the external noise
  • These Beats earphones are water resistant; you can take them on a sweaty trip to the gym, without fear for their safety
  • In-line microphone and controls are available to answer phone calls, play/pause music, skip tracks, control volume levels, power on/off or reset your headphones
  • Built-in controls and microphone are compatible with all Apple as well as most Android devices
  • Beat in ear Bluetooth have a seamless pairing feature that allows you to instantly pair them with all of your Apple devices that are connected to the same iCloud account
  • The included silicone tips of different sizes ensure that the earbuds sit perfectly in the ear without giving you the feeling that they are about to fall
  • The Beats X have a unique and flexible design that makes them portable and less noticeable than a round-the-neck model
  • When not in use, attach the two buds magnetically to the back and wear them like a pendant to keep them secure  
  • Beats X Wireless Headphone is the first model to be charged with a Lightning cable, now Apple users need to carry only one charging cable 
  • Fast Fuel technology offers up to 2 hours of playback with only 5 minutes of charging time

Reasons Why You Should Avoid Them

  • Beats X Wireless are only available in two colors: black and white. The rest of the Beats headphones are available in different color options
  • The two earbuds are attached by a cable that may seem a little long for some people with smaller necks 
  • These Beats in ear headphones are not suitable for running or heavy exercising, as they keep jumping down your ears
  • The sound quality is energetic and full, but lacks detail and presence, and sometimes sounds a bit sharp 
  • Beats X are expensive pair of earbuds, cheaper options with better sound quality offered by competitors 
  • Due to the non-availability of a dedicated app, Beats X Wireless Headphones are not as customizable as some of the other in-ear models 
  • No “auto pause” feature when take them off, making them a little less convenient 
  • Lack of an auto-shut-off mode means battery will be completely discharged, if earbuds remain connected
  • 8 hours of playtime is enough for a casual day, not for a long weekend
