Apple’s BeatsX Headphones Launching February 10


BeatsX headphones will finally become available on Friday, February 10th, after first being announced alongside the iPhone 7 last fall.


The headphones come with Apple’s custom Bluetooth W1 chip, also found in AirPods, which allows for quick charging (Fast Fuel gives two hours of playback with just 5 minutes of charging), plus easy pairing and connections across devices connected to the same iCloud account. The headphones come with an 8 hour battery life.

When Apple finally started shipping AirPods, the company announced the BeatsX debut would be delayed until February 2017.

According to CNET, the headphones will debut in the U.S. with two new colour options as well: grey and blue (to go with white and black).

Canada will most likely see BeatsX launch here on Friday as well, priced at $179.95 CAD (AirPods launched simultaneously in the US/Canada). Stay tuned to Apple’s website this week.

AirPods are still hard to find, as only 21 Apple Stores have stock as of writing, with 8 of these being in Canada, according to tracker IsInStock.

    Hoping these will be available more widely unlike AirPods. Personally not a big fan of in-ear earbuds but this is the second best thing after AirPods if one wants the benefits of W1 chip. So will definitely give these a go.


    Definitely will NOT buy a piece of junk beats, my last wireless pair broke in half after 3 months

    I like my AirPods, had issues with fit, but fixed that with the hack with the ear covers. I wish there was an in ear version. but do not like beats in general
