Whether we’re calling a friend, playing music, or even asking Siri for help, we’re almost always listening to our phones. In this world, we’re more or less constantly connected. But we can’t always be attached to our devices. When we’re out running, traveling, or even just hanging out at home, we want a way to stay connected without having it always glued to our hands.
What do we need? A great pair of wireless headphones, of course! So can these BeatsX earphones give us what we want?
Let’s find out in this in-depth BeatsX Review…
We’ll start by taking a look at some of our favorite things about these BeatsX earphones.
Apple W1 Chip
If you’ve ever used a Bluetooth device before, you’ll know how difficult pairing can be. The W1 chip puts an end to that. Just turn them on, hold them close to your iOS device, and there you have it! Almost seamless pairing in an instant.
What else? Well, once they’ve connected to one of your Apple devices, they’re ready to go with all other products registered to your iCloud account. It’s a simple, convenient way to switch devices any time you want.
The chip also provides a better battery life for the earphones, and even extends the range of the Bluetooth connection. You can leave your phone on the other side of the gym and still listen with perfect clarity.
Sounds perfect, right? But is there a catch? Well, yes. This instant syncing only works with iOS. If you’re an Android user, you won’t receive these benefits. Having said that, you do get a great range and increased battery life, so they can still be a good option for non-Apple devices.
Flex Form Cable
With convenient to use inline controls and a built-in microphone, you can effortlessly make calls as well as change or adjust your music.
Worried about losing them? This cable offers great security, resting cozily and safely on your neck. Now hold that thought, because we want to talk about this a little more further down the page.
Quick Charge Feature
This might be our favorite thing about the BeatsX earphones! The quick charge feature provided by the W1 chip is perfect for emergencies, and any time you get caught out or are short on time. The best part? A charge time of just five minutes can provide up to eight hours of battery life.
Variety Of Eartip Options
Offering four different sizes of ear tips for maximum comfort, BeatsX avoids the one-size-fits-all approach you get from other in ear headphones.
So what else? Let’s look at some other aspects of the BeatsX earphones.
Unlike old-school ear covers or expensive over ear headphone designs, BeatsX earphones are connected by the flex form cable we talked about earlier. This might sound as though it could be weighty or awkward. Well, good news! The cable sits snugly but comfortably around the back of your neck.
It is light enough that it does not get in the way or cause any irritation, and makes these earphones almost impossible to lose. And that’s not all. They also have built-in magnets for additional peace of mind and to help avoid tangling.
How About In-ear Comfort?
The range of four different eartip sizes included in the box means you can pick the tips that are best for you. In fact, as far as comfort goes, we think these are some of the best in ear headphones we’ve ever used.
And as for color? While black will always be classic, they’re also available in satin silver or black/red so, you can choose the pair that suits your style the most.

These earphones are a great choice for consumers who enjoy a broad range of musical genres. They offer a medium balance of sound without any distortion or tinny vibrations. Their mellow bass and clear treble give a sweet, natural tone.
Thanks to noise isolation technology, we loved that we could fully immerse ourselves in the sound. This, along with their close fit, helps to block out any background noise.
The sound quality is equally effective when making phone calls. The built-in microphone offers a clear voice pick up, and the earphones themselves allowed us to conduct a clear, interference free conversation.
So, what are we using these earphones for? Are we listening to music during a workout? On the subway? Answering calls while running errands?
Well, actually, BeatsX earphones are pretty great for all of this.
Stuck in traffic or on public transport? No problem! Remember those noise isolation capabilities we mentioned earlier? They separate the sound you’re listening to through the earphones from any outside noise. This lets you relax, ignoring background noise, or any strangers who want to talk with you on the bus!
The fit of the eartips makes them fantastic for the gym. They nestle cozily in the ear allowing the user to go running, cycling, or lifting weights without any fear of losing them. They also have handy built-in magnets, meaning they snap together any time you take them out.
They’re not waterproof. So, a seriously sweaty workout might give you a bit of a problem.
And how about answering calls? Well, the flex form cable helps again here. We can speak directly into the microphone while adjusting the volume for a clear conversation. These controls are also useful when listening to music, as you can skip or rewind songs.

So Many Headphone Choices
We really like these Beats headphones and highly recommend them; but, there may be something that makes them unsuitable for you? If that’s the case, please check out our reviews of the Sony MDR 7506, the Bose Soundlink Around Ear, the 1More Triple Driver, the Bose QuietComfort 25, the Sony WH1000XM3, and the Bose QuietComfort II.
Overall, BeatsX earphones offer any user a great experience. The comfort alone makes them a first-rate choice. Different eartips along with that awesome cable mean that this level of comfort is hard to beat.
