Yesterday, Apple finally released its long-awaited ‘Beats X’ earphones, five months after their unveiling. The £129.95 ‘Beats X’, designed by Dr. Dre, have up to eight hours of battery life and are available in four colours: white; blue; grey and black. They also have quick charging that gets you two hours of playback in just five minutes. Perhaps best of all, though, the earbuds utilize the same Apple-designed W1 chip found in the AirPods for quick and easy pairing with iOS devices and Macs — BeatsX is still fully compatible with non-Apple devices, however — and come complete with a tangle-free Flex-Form cable, magnets that attach the buds together when they’re not in use, and a carrying case.
Apple is also offering three months of free Apple Music with a selection of its music accessories, including the Beats X. The “flex-form” cable that links the magnetic earbuds let them sit around your neck without the fear they’ll fall off at a moments notice, a concern that still hangs around the Apple AirPods.
Apple claims the Beats X audio is apparently clearer than former over-ear models designed by Dre. The Beats X focus on bass-centric beats for improved clarity and, what former products lacked in terms of noise-isolation, the latest design by Dre is said to be able to adjust to the frequency of music and background noises to offer a crisper sound.
‘Beats X’ are currently available at Apple stores and online. You can order them here.
