Last year, Apple announced its new BeatsX wireless earphones alongside the iPhone 7/ 7Plus and the new AirPods. The new BeatsX were previously expected to be released in December 2016, but for reasons still unknown, Apple pushed back its release date to this February. True to its words, Apple today announced that its BeatsX wireless neckband-style earphones will be available for sale this Friday, February 10 following a delay of over a month.
According to Apple, users will be able to buy the new BeatsX wireless earphones from Apple’s online stores, authorized re-sellers and Apple physical stores this Friday. In the US, the new pair of wireless headphones will be priced at $150, while you get it at 130 GBP in the UK. Initially, the new BeatsX wireless earphones will hit stores in White and Black with other two colors expected to come out next month.
For some background, the BeatsX wireless earphones feature the new W1 chip that includes the ability to seamlessly connect to your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Mac. The new earphones offer up to 8 hours of battery life and up to 2 hours of playback time with 5 minutes of charging. However, the new BeatsX earphones are not waterproof, so don’t bring them along when it rains. Unlike the new AirPods, which are cable-free, the BeatsX earphones include a Flex Form cable which is specifically designed to make the new earphones rest comfortably around your neck. Besides, the BeatsX can attack to one another magnetically when not in use.
This year, Apple is expected to release the new iPhone 8 with an overhauled design and impressive features. There have been a lot of rumors hinting at the new iPhone 8’s specs and features ranging from A11 chip, iris scanner to OLED displays and wireless charging.
