After several months of unexplained delays, Apple’s BeatsX earphones can now be bought from Apple’s online store for $149.95.
Similarly to Apple AirPods, BeatsX are wireless earphones that connect to other devices via Bluetooth, assisted with Apple’s wireless W1 chip which makes pairing a breeze.
The main difference is that the AirPods are fully cable free, while the BeatsX have a remote-equipped cable that goes around your neck, thus (ideally) making them harder to fall out of your ear and perhaps a bit better for use during physical activity.
BeatsX also feature “optimized noise isolation,” 8 hours of battery life, extremely quick and efficient “Fast Fuel” charging, and Siri support.
If you’re unsure whether you want the AirPods or BeatsX, take into consideration that AirPodsare pretty much sold out, with 6-weeks shipping time.
For BeatsX, shipping is 1 business day for all color options: gray, white, blue and black.
