When Apple announced that their iPhone 7 smartphone would not have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack included, many wondered what they would use with the new smartphone. It did not take long for manufacturers, however, to come up with wireless headphones compatible with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Apple's own Beats by Dr. Dre headphones have been pretty busy focusing on developing headphones for use on both devices.
After a series of delays, Apple is finally to release its BeatsX earphones. The BeatsX earphones were originally announced in September last year alongside the iPhone 7 and AirPods wireless headphones. During its unveiling, Apple said the earphones would be available in Fall 2016. Throughout fall, Apple kept pretty mum about its release date though. And ever since then, the release date of the earphones have been pushed to a later date. Early this week, there were rumors that the BeatsX earphones would finally be released and Apple is proving true with its promise.
The BeatsX earphones feature a neckband style in-ear wireless headphones. These earphones feature the same W1 chip that's seen on the AirPods. Thanks to this technology, the earphones are able to instantly pair with an iPhone device without the lengthy manual process of setting up the pairing. And that is not all, after this initial pairing, the earphones also connect to the other devices that are signed into the iCloud account it paired with. This means that if you have an iPad, Apple Watch, or a Mac signed into the same account, it will automatically be paired with the earphones and you can use it with either of these devices.
Apart from a W1 chip, the BeatsX earphones has the ability to last up to eight hours on a single charge. It also comes with a Lightning cable and fast charging technology. When you need a quick charge and you only have five minutes to spare, it will already bring you two hours of music playback.
The earphones come in a total of four size options along with removable secure-fit wingtips. You can now order the BeatsX earphones for $149.95. This will already allow you to choose from one of the four color options available -- black, blue, gray, or white. The blue and gray colors have just been announced, along with the release date. According to Apple's official announcement regarding shipping times of the BeatsX earphones, it could range from one day to three weeks, depending on your chosen color.
