BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Apart from their popular AirPods, Apple will release a long awaited pair of new wireless headphones. Of course, we are talking about BeatsX by Dr. Dre. Last Tuesday, the company announced that they would be launched on February 10th.
BeatsX, the wireless earphones, were officially presented at the same time with the introduction of the AirPods, in September last year. The latter escaped no controversy when their release had been delayed with no further explanation from the company.
Then, the people got their expected wireless earphone set and BeatsX faced a similar situation to the AirPods’, namely they were not released at the scheduled date last autumn and it appeared it would be delayed for an unspecified period of time.
Now, the waiting period of time for the Beats by Dre fans is over. The wireless earphones are soon to be available in stores in a neck-type form for the price of $150. In a few days, fans will be able to pick BeatsX up from the Apple’s physical stores all over the globe, as well as in authorized retail points.
If you don’t have time to go and grab a pair of magical earphones from a store, do not worry. You can order BeatsX from the Apple’s website.
The Beats by Dre earphones have a W1 chip incorporated that allows them to be easily paired with iPhones or iPads. The same chip is also found in AirPods. Thus, those who have used AirPods before know how seamless these BeatsX earphones will be working with Apple products.
The earphones also have a wire that connect the two earbuds. The users can twist this wire around or over the back of their necks. The purpose of the wire is to hold the remote and the microphone and the possibility to have smaller earbuds that those of the AirPods.
They also connect to the device via Bluetooth and each earbud has a magnet attached that is meant to keep them in place and avoid getting lost.
Also, they feature the Fast Fuel technology. This means that, after five minutes of charging, BeatsX can withhold about two hours of playback and a total of eight hours of battery life.
In the end, if you are also interested about the design, the earphones come in the two basic colors, black and white. Gray and blue models will soon be available.
