Beats X


Beats X review: Bluetooth earphones, with Apple's iPhone-loving W1 chip for a smoother wireless ride.

Great general wireless performance ; Extra easy for iPhone owners ; Fun sound

Unrefined upper mids ; Not that detailed

iPhone owners will find the Beats X a dream to use, but you can get better sound at the price.

Beats X: the best neckband earphones money can buy?


Apple's W1 chip comes to these fashionable neckband headphones - they're not for running, though

Super sound quality ; W1 pairing is ace ; They don't tangle

The neckband bounces around everywhere

Beats X review


Energetic and full - as you'd expect from Beats - but you can get better at this price

Great wireless performance ; iPhone-tailored hardware ; Smart, simple look ; Energetic sound

Limited detail ; Shouty midrange

A fine Bluetooth performance, but the Xs' energetic delivery lacks insight

Beats X headphones review: Bass marks the spot


Big bass as you'd expect ; Comfortable fit with multiple tips ; Quick charge feature is great ; W1 chip connectivity is super easy ; Bluetooth range is great

Awkward fit with shirt collar ; Lightning charger means Apple focus ; Bass might drown things ; Magnetised fit out of ear doesn't stop the music

The Beats X headphones offer all the cool connectivity functionality of the Apple AirPods in a more conventional form factor.

Beats X Wireless Earphones review


Eight-hour battery life and a balanced sound signature on a pair of Beats? You better believe it.

Snug, comfy fit Quick Charge feature Balanced sound signature

Relatively expensive Lacking in clarity

The BeatsX are a solid pair of in-ear headphones. They might not have the highest clarity out of all the headphones we've tested, but that’s something they make up for with supreme comfort, smart iOS integration and a surprisingly effective Quick...

BeatsX review: The best Beats, or the worst?


Beats headphones have always divided opinion, and in this sense BeatsX are the most “Beats-like” yet

After my first listen, I was prepared to bury the BeatsX under a hailstorm of criticism. Yet after using them for a couple of weeks, they’ve become my headphones of choice. Yes, I would prefer it if the sound was a better, although for the majority of...

  (Rating Hidden)

The BeatsX in-ear headphones are a wireless Bluetooth pair released in early 2017. With a claimed eight hours of battery life and fast-charging technology, could we finally be seeing a good pair of wireless earphones that will last a full day? Read on...

Beats X review: The perfect earbuds for young cyborgs with cash to burn


The best wireless earbuds yet?

Good sound quality ; Effortless pairing with Apple products thanks to W1 chip ; Comfortable in all situations, including workouts

Fairly pricey ; Audio isn't 100% perfect ; Gross carrying pouch

Thanks to their more universal design and smooth sound, the Beats X earphones are arguably better than Apple's AirPods, but they don't come cheap.

Beats Solo Pro review: Better Beats


Beats' latest entry to its most popular line of headphones is the Beats Solo Pro, succeeding the Solo 3 Wireless. It now sports active noise-cancellation.

Comfortable for most users ; Active noise-canceling works well ; Turns off when folded ; Better sound than prior Beats
