    First impressions? How snug is the fit? Any customizable earpiece options to get that perfect seal?

    When you have them around your neck do you feel like the neck part swings around or does it pretty much stay in place?

    Also, compared to the AirPods how far away from the phone can you get before you get broken audio?

    Do they have that annoying ever present bass presence the Beats headphones have?

    I literally just exited the Apple Store with my new AirPods. With that in mind, how different are the BeatsX in comparison, primarily in overall performance?

    I saved this from an article I've read about the w1 Chip.


    Just noticing now it doesn't cover the BeatsX, but you get an impression anyway.

    I wonder why there is such a difference in range with the W1 chips. I've got AirPods and the PowerBeats3 at home. I'll have to test them out this weekend. I haven't really tested much as far as the range is concerned between the two.

    I guess it has to do with the antenna. The AirPods are smaller, thus have a smaller antenna build in.

    I just got a pair and the inline controls do not seem to work. I have done power cycles on both the headphones and phone trying to unpair and repair. Rene you seeing any problems with the inline controls ?

    That's what I would have guessed.

    I like that they have the tether, but I really like the features of the AirPods. Curious how the sound is compared to them, as well as the overall durability which Beats seem to suffer from.

    I don't have beats x but I've never had an issue with PowerBeats holding up.

    Sound is just like you typical beats. Good base, etc...I like the thickness of the wires. Im used to the LG ones and these look like they will take more wear and tear. You have to use them around your neck otherwise the weight thingys on either side will make them feel like they are pulling them down. But Once you have them wrapped around your neck you don't even realize they are there.

    I haven't been listening to music yet for a long period of time. (That's a non-no on a construction site), but when I get off work I'll make a phone call to my wife, my girlfriend, my ex and also listen to music on my hour drive back home. I'll report later.....

    Got mine yesterday. Great quality headphones! These headphones sounds great all around. They are not your typical bass heavy beats but what you get is a more balanced highs, mids, and bass. I'm coming from beats urBeats and these are hands down way better.

    Listening to music on my lunch break. Rich base, nice treble. Typical beats performance ( which is very good, IMO).
    Don't even feel them around my neck and ears

    So these have less of that omnipresent bass hum than the UrBeats? That's makes me feel better about them.

    Yes these are well balanced and still has a nice punch and more bass than EarPods / AirPods. The urBeats bass was stronger but that affects the mids and highs in a bad way. Very nice acoustics on these. The w1 chip is a major plus. My only complaint is that they don't auto power off.

    You had me at less bass than UrBeats and you're losing me at more bass than EarPods. EarPods are overly bassy, in a bloated nasty way. Guess I'm still on the fence then.
