Don’t waste your money
First pair failed after 10 months. Kept switching off when walking around. Apple replaced under warranty but only 90 days warranty was given on the replacement set. 5 months later after being super careful not to damage them they now turn off or disconnect whenever the connecting cable is flexed while wearing them.

Don’t waste your money
2 years, 2 times replaced by Apple because they wouldn’t charge and now ready to be disposed as they don’t work anymore and are out of warranty. Otherwise I was asked 120AUD to get a replacement pair. Such a shame Apple is now manufacturing disposable products..... Very disappointed as many others here!

Don’t buy them
I purchased the Beats and after 5 months they wouldn’t charge. I received an replacement and they worked for 8 months. They wouldn’t power once again and I called customer service. They told me they wouldn’t fix the them or replace them because the warranty expired. The warranty starts is from the first pair you buy And not the replacement. I will never purchase a Beat product again.

BeatsX die after a year-warranty gone
Sound was thin without base, aggravating my tinnitus. Music sounded terrible. After 14 months after the battery no longer held a charge. That over $7 a month. Don't by them.

Nice wireless earphone
I use my BeatsX to listen to music. Overall, the sound volume and sound quality is above average. But there is no noise cancellation. So I can still hear background noise which is annoying. This earphone is perfect for physical activities too. Both earbuds are connected, so it can be easily found whenever I need them. Unfortunately, it has short battery life. I will need to charge it after approximately 4-5 hours of continuous usage.

Good little cute earphone
I use it with my computer to listen to music and YouTube. I like the design of BeatsX where both earbuds are connected with the rubberised flex-form cable, making it suitable for physical activities like running because it will not drop easily. It is interesting to find out that the earbud housings are magnetised, keeping them tangle-free. Overall, I like the sound volume and wireless range. I can easily turn the volume up or down using the control on BeatsX. Once I turn it on, it automatically connected to my computer, fast and easy. I would recommend this product.

Unable to charge the headphone
This product has a short shelf life . It is overrated . It fails to charge and can’t use for more than year . If you get it replaced within warranty period, then good for you . Else don’t bother to send for Apple repair . Repair cost is almost the same as buying a new one .
Do not buy this product strongly not recommended . Over price and non durable .

Sound quality and battery not great
Recently bought a pair because I wanted some wireless headphones with a long battery lift and they’re advertised as having up to 9 hours. Finding they are running out after 4-5 hours and the sound quality isn’t great, finding myself re-using my $20 headphones with better sound quality and a similar battery life. They’re also not great for working out, the loop tends to fall off when doing bench.

I don't know where to start from on this.
First I can't wear it while even walking around as it will fall off.
Lame bass and no low bass.
Not fast connection.
Volume is decent but bass literally disappear at high volume.
My suggestion will be to buy something else instead of this.

Got them 2 months ago as my earlier sony ones died. Its easy to connect plus noise cancelling and wireless. sp overall very happy. battery life is quite good as a charge lasts me whole day. best part is it reaches 97% in under 10 mins charge.

I would not buy it for that price
These headsets had great sound but other that that its just useless. I paid around $150 for these and it was a waste of money. The batteries did not last for more than 3-4 hours specially when making calls and the mic wasn't good without bringing it next to your mouth. So I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Pretty pathetic for the price, junk to pair and I have a set of JBL headphones that are better sound quality. For the price, you’d expect better, but then that’s apple for you. Once they get your money they dont give a tinkers.

Now just useless plastic to go in the landfill.
I purchased some Beats x and they paired with my iPhone and iMac and were fine. Then I didn't use them for a while. I charged them last week and turned them on. They would not pair with my devices. I looked the problem up and it was suggested the firmware needed updating. So I downloaded the upgrade. Then when i went to install it I found my software was incompatible and it would not install. My software is up to date. So basically they are now an expensive piece of useless plastic. I am furious and appalled that such a recent purchase is now a throwaway. Shame on you Beats.
So Bad I'd Rather Die
I have owned these headphones for 2 years. In that time I have replaced them at least 5 times, for they constantly break and are made from cheap materials making them not very durable. If you are looking for some high quality daily-use headphones, I would not suggest these. You are definitely paying for the brand not the actual headphones.

Worth every penny
If you are into trance and electronic music and if you enjoy flat bass, this is it. Don't look elsewhere. These are absolutely phenomenal. The only little issue is that battery life is not that great. But the sound quality makes that issue rather pity.

Ok but not great
These headphones are ok if you aren't doing any physical activity (walking/running). I've found that the buds just continuously fall out no matter what buds I use which is a shame but is also a person thing.
The two things I do like is how quick they sync with my iPhone and the quick charge feature (15 minute charge provides roughly an hour of listening). I don't expect full rich sound like 5.1 surround sound but these do the job.
Would I recommend them? Hard to say I would, you defiantly need to try them on before purchasing which would be difficult!

Ok sound, good battery life, comfortable but lacking feature for price and poor value for money
I got these as I was looking for a high-quality wireless headset to go along with my iPhone. I had heard good things and was hoping that they would offer great battery life, comfort and top notch sound quality...given their price tag.
- Comfortable, light weight and well designed.
- Decent battery life....if you remember to turn them off when not in use
- fast charging
- easy 1st pairing for apple iPhone users
- Average sound quality for the price....better sound from Plantronics Go410. It's fairly balanced for a beats, that is not too base heavy, but lacks a wide soundscape and overall, isn't fun and music sounds a bit flat....

Like the product, just didn’t last
I like my beats x very much. Very clear Bluetooth Calls / music in my car. Stopped charging at 15 mths, just out of warranty. But I will buy another pair.
Purchased in November 2018 at eBay for $140.00.
Great sound, poor build
Sound: 4. Call quality: 4. Build 2. Broke after 9 months - simply do not turn on. Apple replaced them, but it's only a matter of time I think until they break again. However features wise it's a great set of headphones. Calls are great, the magnets work well and sound is clear. I only wish it would also power off or pause when the magnets are activated too.

Questions & Answers
Is it with bass? I bought one and returned because I could not feel the bass at all or my one is faulty?
I have the same problem. Beats have a reputation for going overboard with the bass, these seem to be the opposite! Very bright and incredibly fatiguing.
Running through the spectrum there is artificial boosting evident around 700-1400Hz, 5000-8000Hz, and 11,000-12,000Hz. The part I don't understand is response tapers off under 400Hz with almost nothing below 80Hz.
Weird. In summary cheap sound with some boosting to give it the impression of sounding crisp and clear.
I will be returning and buying the Bose Soundsport.
