Apple Says BeatsX Earphones Delayed Until February

Apple has updated its website to indicate its all-new BeatsX wireless earphones will be available in February in the United States, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, and several other countries, after originally saying they would launch in the Fall. Online pre-orders can still not be placed at this time.

BeatsX earphones feature Bluetooth and the same Apple W1 chip used by AirPods, which launched today, enabling users to pair them by simply powering them on and holding them near an iPhone. Unlike the truly wireless AirPods, the BeatsX have a Flex-Form cable that keeps the earpieces tethered to each other.

BeatsX deliver up to 8 hours of battery life on a single charge. With Fast Fuel, a 5-minute charge gives users 2 hours of playback. An in-line Remote and Mic allows for users to take calls, control music playback, and activate Siri. BeatsX cost $149.95 and come in black or white with a pocket-sized carrying case.

The confirmation comes just a few days after Apple reseller B&H Photo Video said BeatsX earphones would be delayed for at least 2-3 months, which indeed suggested availability in February or March.

Apple has already released updated Beats Solo3 Wireless and Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones with the Apple W1 chip.

The future may be wireless, but the present is wirelessless.

If they are going to sound like the rest of the Beats, no thanks. I have the Beats Solo 2 Wireless and the urBeats wired earbuds and they both sound boomy and muddy. To sound-deaf or casual listeners they may sound okay, but for critical listening Beats needs to improve their sound quality a lot.
