BeatsX Earphones – : Disappointing that these no longer come with wingtips

I previously owned a pair which i thought were great. Unfortunately i lost my first pair and so had to replace them. Very disappointed to find that they no longer come with wing tips. Without these, the headphones constantly fall out. Now i’ve had to purchase the wing tips separately. Still, the headphones are great, just a let down that they have taken something out so small that makes such a great difference.

This item does not include the wing tips or carry case. Returned mine and amazon said they would update the description to reflect what is really in the box. (i understand this product description discrepancy to be a supplier error. )the headphones themselves are great, but if those accessories are important to you then you may want a different purchasing option.

For £120 you can get a much better pair of headphones in terms of sound quality. I bought these because they are lightweight, ergonomic, are perfectly compatible with my iphone and sound reasonably good. The soundstage is not fantastic but it is not terrible either. Music sounds great, the battery life is very good, and it is handy that is uses a lightning cable to charge. They do not come with wingtips or a carry bag anymore which is disappointing since you pay quite a premium. These headphones are ideal for people who travel or commute since they are lightweight and not bulky. If you want something to listen to at work or home i do not recommend these. The sound quality is better than the anker soundbud slim, but if you are just after a simple pair of bluetooth headphones and on a budget you could buy a £30 set rather than these.

Battery on my pair was crap, but they were nice, with the apple w1 chip, they are seamless. My first pair had an issue, and not even a genius at apple’s genius bar could sort them. Then i returned those in exchange for a second pair, which the battery life was horrendous. J could only get about 30 minutes of music, from ‘100%’ to ‘0%’. I have sent them off for a full refund. I think i will buy the airpods, but if you get a good pair, when they work, they great. Good sound, and on my first pair, when they worked, good battery life: it all depends on the pair you get.

This is my second pair of beats x headphones; i initially purchased a pair in february 2017 but the right ear bud gave out after 13 months (so just out of warranty). Surprised to see that, despite the price i paid reducing by only £1. 90, they no longer come with a carrying case or wing tips which i know some people find help them stay in their ears. If you predominantly use apple devices, as i do, then the functionality of the w1 chip in these headphones really does make a great deal of difference to utility of the earphones. You get convenience comparable to apple’s airpods but with a more ergonomic design, better sound quality and far superior sound isolation. 8 hours of claimed battery life is accurate and perfectly reasonable, and the marketing doesn’t lie when it says you can get a couple of hours worth of battery with a 5-min charge which is great when you’ve forgotten to plug them in. I’ll be happy as long as this new pair doesn’t develop a fault after another 13 months. Recommended for apple users; for android/pc users, there are similarly priced alternatives with better sound quality.

The beatsx have so far been a great purchase – the sound quality is very good, i can’t imagine being able to get more out of that size; the battery life does get to the advertised 8 hours and has been at least 6. 5 hours which is more than similar bluetooth gear. The only minor complaint is that the earplugs are not the best size for me (tried the spare ones as well) and gradually come out of my ears, and i need to press them in every so often. Not a massive issue though as it does not happen too frequently.
