BeatsX vs AirPods vs Jaybird Freedom Wireless Headphones Comparison [VIDEOS]

Apple is set to launch their BeatsX wireless headphones February 10 in the U.S., and we expect them to debut in Canada as well, priced at $179.95 CAD ($149.95 in the USA).

BeatsX wireless headphones are $39.05 cheaper than AirPods in Canada ($219 CAD), so what exactly are the differences?

YouTube channel Jonathon Morrison got his hands on an early release pair of BeatsX, and shared how they compared to AirPods in a variety of tests.

Morrison says both sets of wireless headphones stayed in his ears during running and basketball. Sound quality saw BeatsX offer more bass due to its in-ear design. But he did like AirPods due to their charging case and the potential for all day battery life, versus 8 hours for BeatsX.

Here’s another video from Austin Evans, who also got an early pair of BeatsX as well, and tries to answer the question “Are the $150 USD Beats X Worth It?”, comparing them to Jaybird Freedom wireless headphones, and AirPods too.

As noted by Morrison, BeatsX headphones also come with a free three month promo for Apple Music.
