BeatsX Full Review and Bonuses: Here's What Awaits ConsumersBy Ava Jones, UniversityHerald Reporter
Apple's AirPods took the headphones industry by storm after being announced in September 2016. However, it is not the only wireless headphone Apple is bringing to the table. The tech company's Beats by Dre version, Beats X, is also expected for release on 10 February at $150.
BeatsX Full Review
BeatsX will have the new custom pow-power Bluetooth chip by Apple. It will also have the W1, which AirPods, Solo3 Wireless and the PowerBeatss3 also have. An important benefit for using BeatsX is its automatic pairing capabilities with Apple devices that run on the company's latest OS, which are the WatchOS 3, MacOS Sierra, and the iOS 10, CNET reported. Another bonus feature that comes with the BeatsX is its capability to charge with a Lightning cable.
Ultimately, the BeatsX is a fresh take -- or really Apple's take -- on the neckband-style wireless headphone that LG made so popular with its Tone headsets and have been copied in recent years by an assortment of other companies. As in the past, Apple and Beats haven't reinvented the mousetrap so to speak, but they have built a better one.
Another notable feature of the new headphone is its Flex-Form cable, which is a neckband with two wires made of very malleable materials like nickel titanium alloy or the nitinol. Its rigidity makes it easier for the user to roll it up and fit it anywhere. Its cord has two bulges that have equal weight where the battery and the electronics are housed.
What Consumers Can Expect
Basically, the features mentioned above are some of the leading reasons why BeatsX stands out from the rest. The flex-form cable means the headphones aren't completely wireless, unlike the AirPods, MacRumors reported. The cables reassure the user that the earphones won't go falling from their ears. The wireless headphones has plenty other impressive features that separates it from the rest of the headphones available in the market these days.
