The long wait for Apple’s new BeatsX wireless earbuds is finally over and based on our first impressions, it was totally worth it.
We got our hands on a pair of the precious new BeatsX buds today and are mighty impressed by the big sound Apple managed to pack in such a small package. Like the AirPods, the BeatsX earbuds pack a custom W1 Bluetooth chip to pump out better performance and connectivity. Unboxing the tethered buds has been love at first sight.
Let’s dive in!
The new earbuds went on sale today. There are four different color options — black, white, gray and blue — but the last two colors aren’t shipping for another week to 10 days.
Beats put a Lightning connector on the buds for quick recharging. A five-minute charge is supposed to deliver two hours of battery life. Total battery life is about eight hours. You can pick up a pair online or from your local Apple store for $149.99.
