BeatsX, the neckbuds powered by Apple's W1 chip, are 27% off, grab a pair for $109

Looking to get yourself a great pair of around-the-neck wireless earphones? If that's the case, you might wanna check out Amazon's latest offer for the BeatsX in-ear headphones. The e-commerce site is currently selling the neckbuds in black, blue, gray, and white for $109, a discount of 27% when compared to the price on the Apple store. Now, you won't see the price on the listing as it is lower than the recommended retail price, but adding the item to your cart will reveal it. 

Much like the AirPods, the BeatsX feature Apple's custom W1 chip. These headphones are compatible with any Bluetooth-enabled device, but the W1 chip makes them especially useful if you own products in the Apple ecosystem. It allows seamless pairing and switching between Apple products such as iPhones, the Apple Watch, iCloud-connected Macs, and so on. 

However, the biggest advantage of the W1 chip is that it helps improve battery life. The BeatsX can last up to 8 hours regardless of what device they're paired to. This is almost twice as long compared to Apple's AirPods. Another great functionality is the so-called "Fast Fuel" charging which provides you with up to 2 hours of playback time in exchange for a short 5-minute charge.

If this offer interests you, make sure to follow the above link to Amazon. Make sure to act fast, as supplies are limited.

Got these a few months back. Iam no audiophile, but the they sound good, block out noises,and they fit really well in your ear. I mostly got them because of their unique,slim design. The magnets are not that strong, and the case they come with is pretty useless.

Do these sound better than the Samsung level U Pros? I have the level U pro and was honestly asking from anyone who might have used both so that I can decide to pick these up.

Yes. I have both and they sound way better and also block out ambient noise while on calls better than any other around the neck headphone out there.

These are actually decent headphones. Very lightweight around the neck, sound is good with music and calls, and these block out ambient noise better better than any other around the neck Bluetooth I've had. If you haven't used them then there is no way you can actually have a honest negative opinion about them.

People still buy this garbage? I haven't seen anyone try and floss their Beats in about 2 years. I guess the fad is dead.

I’m not a fan of beats, but you must be blind if you aren’t seeing them everywhere.

That's one of the 21st century illnesses, known as "political correctness"

I'd rather spend my money on something that sounds good.
