The BeatsX headphones are Bluetooth using Apple’s W1 chip, but in a different way than the AirPods. BeatsX are tethered together with a neck cable and come with a Lightning charging cable. The headphones also ship with four interchangeable ear tips in different sizes and removable wingtips if you decide to go running with them.
The headphones will give you up to eight hours of music playback on a full charge. You can get two hours of playing on only five minutes. You’ll also enjoy optimized noise isolation for an “immersive listening experience.”
