Beats Solo Pro hands-on review: Noise gets canceled

 

Beats' latest entry to its most popular line of headphones is the Beats Solo Pro, succeeding the Solo 3 Wireless. It now sports active noise-cancellation and smart features like the ability to turn on automatically when you unfold the headphones. It...

Extremely comfortable ; Active noise-canceling doesn't feel jarring ; Turns off when folded ; Uses recycled materials, comes with a felt case ; Audio sounds great

Beats X review: Apple's neckbuds for the everyday

 

The new $150 Beats X wireless earbuds have taken a backseat to Apple's AirPods ever since both products were announced at the same event last September. The truly wireless AirPods got a Jony...

Comfortable enough to wear all day ; W1 chip makes life simpler for Apple customers ; Fantastic noise isolation

Average sound quality ; Cable between earbuds is too long ; Terrible lint-magnet carrying case

Apple's other wireless earbuds might be a better fit for you than the AirPods

BeatsX review

 

Like 'em or hate 'em, Apple's AirPods have been the talk of the headphone world ever since they were announced alongside the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus back in September 2016. But there's another Apple wireless headphone from the company's Beats by Dre...

The BeatsX is a comfortable, lightweight, water-resistant, neckband-style Bluetooth headphone with a secure in-ear fit and good sound quality. It pairs instantly with Apple devices, rolls up to fit in an included carrying case, and charges quickly via...

Slight treble push; cords may seem a bit long for some users.

The slickly designed BeatsX is an appealing neckband-style wireless headphone that offers a lot of the "magic" of Apple's AirPods in a more conventional, sports-friendly design.

Beats BeatsX

 

The BeatsX Bluetooth earphones from Beats deliver strong audio performance and excellent wireless connectivity, aided by Apple's W1 chip.

Powerful audio performance with rich bass and clear highs. Includes W1 chip for fast, seamless connection with iOS devices. Excellent wireless range.

No auto power-down or sleep mode. Sculpted sound signature not for audio purists.

Of all the earphones and headphones we've tested with the W1 chip thus far, the BeatsX are our favorite. You get all the benefits of the chip, along with a secure fit and a refreshingly reasonable price (for Beats, that is). But mainly, it's the...

Beats Beats X HEADPHONES

 

The Beats BeatsX are above-average, mixed-usage headphones for everyday casual use. They have a great wireless range and a well-balanced sound. They're lightweight, portable and unlike other around-the-neck designs, they can be crammed into your...

Portable and stable. ; Good, passive isolation. ; Minimal leakage.

The in-ear fit and around-the-neck design are not for everyone.

BeatsX Decade Collection review: Clean design, new Beats sound

 

Since Apple's purchase of Beats there have been many changes and for the better. This is the BeatsX Decade Collection review.

The BeatsX earbuds have a clean design with new Beats sound that doesn’t kill you with bass but makes the bass more of a foundation to the other frequencies. A mushy power button is probably the worst part of these earphones. Overall, these are a good...

Beats Solo Pro review: Noise cancelling makes all the difference

 

Fantastic noise cancelling, the H1 chip, and very good sound quality make these the on-ear wireless headphones to beat—for iPhone users.

Lots of available colors ; Excellent noise cancellation ; Very good sound quality ; H1 chip for hands-free Siri and easy syncing

Expensive ; Doesn't fit very large heads well

Great sound and the H1 chip make this an easy, if pricey, choice for iPhone owners.

Beats Turned a Corner With Its New Noise Canceling Headphones

 

Just four short years ago, we were warning you about Beats. Folks were tearing apart old sets of Solo headphones to find bad build quality and extra metal pieces that were seemingly there only to make the headphones a little heavier. Rude! As Beats...

Sturdy design, solid sound quality

Tight fit for big heads, too pricey

Beats X Review: Are Apple's Premium Earbuds Worth It?

 

The $149 BeatsX headphones are certainly not going to blow away audiophiles with their sound, they should work fairly well for most folks, especially Apple fans. The flat, tangle-free, balanced cable is more comfortable than the designs of other...

Good fit and noise isolation ; Weighted battery/electronic pods on cable ; Comfortable earbuds and flat cable for all-day usage ; Quick-charge functionality

Cable is too lengthy ; Awkward pairing procedure using Android and Windows ; Treble and midrange are lacking

The BeatsX wireless headphones deliver a comfy fit, quick-charge functionality and decent audio.

Review: BeatsX are Apple's most affordable W1 wireless headphones

 

With BeatsX, Apple takes the best of Beats by Dre's line of minimalist earphones in-ear monitors wireless, incorporating the new W1 chip, top-notch materials and unique Flex Form neck strap into a consumer-friendly design.

Overall, BeatsX is a well-made, decent sounding earphone that works in a variety of environments. Add to that an easy pairing process and solid wireless connection thanks to Apple's W1 chip, and the package becomes even more appealing.
