BeatsX wireless earphones will be released on February 10

Announced back in September, at the same time with Apple's AirPods and iPhone 7 family, the BeatsX wireless earphones are now finally ready to hit shelves in the US - following a delay of over a month. Beats (an Apple subsidiary since 2014) today announced that the earphones will go on sale this Friday, on February 10.

For the beginning, the new earphones will be sold only in white and black, with two other color options (blue and gray) coming at a later date. Priced at $149.95, the BeatsX will be available from Apple's online shop, in Apple retail stores, and via authorized retailers.

Using the same Apple W1 chip found inside the AirPods, the BeatsX wireless earphones can seamlessly connect to your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac. The earphones provide 8 hours of battery life, and, thanks to what Apple is calling "Fast Fuel" charging, you can get up to 2 hours of playback time after just 5 minutes of charging.

Unlike the AirPods, which are completely cable-free, the BeatsX earphones feature a Flex Form neckband - many users may actually prefer this design, instead of what the AirPods are offering.

Why do these new Beats X earphones only have 8 hours, when other earphones can have up to 25 hours. Jabra has 16 hours, LG Tones Plus has 17 hours. Not to mention a number of them are lower in price.

Indication that they put in a smaller capacity battery that wear out sooner than the rest.

Because it's not about the longevity of the usage or quality of the sound. It's ripping people off. Even sol republic is way better than any beats outs there.

Beats and Apple is a perfect marriage. Beats is good, but not the best by far. It's all about name recognition. Get Beats.. they must be great! I see the name everywhere!!!

You can get far better for less money.

WireLESS? Dont make me laugh. As much wireless as wire'LESS' charging. Wires all over the place and you call a product wireLESS... Inferior product to ordinary wired ones.

This makes absolutely no sense. They should release all 4 colors at the same time since these headphones were delayed so long. I've been waiting so long for these and now I have to wait longer because I want the gray ones. *insert Jackie chan meme*

I am a fan of beats but 8hrs of battery life is piss poor. Jabra makes a similar headset with 16 hrs of battery life. Hopefully the sound makes up for the battery life...

So many other options other than beats. Beats are just OK headphones. This video is a little dated but the point still stands.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsxQxS0AdBY
If you buy these...that's you're fault.

LG Tone Platinums are the best..and are a cheaper price tag.

The only thing with the platinum's is they pick up way to much background noise... I've spoke with numerous people that have them and they say the same thing. for $200 they should block out a lot of the background noise like they claim to do.

Only they look ridiculous around your neck.
The airpods also look stupid when wearing them.
