Apple's BeatsX headphones are just the right fit

Wireless & Bluetooth Speakers
[MUSIC] Wireless earphones have been around for years. But if you're an iPhone 7 owner, cutting the cord is now basically a must. So why spend $150 on the new VTechs? Well, for starters they're made with Apple's W1 chip. Which means stronger Bluetooth connection, better range, and seamless compatibility with other Apple devices. Just turn them on and start using. It's a one-click deal. And it will never forget a pair of beats. Same with the Apple Watch. You'll just have to unpair to release to other devices when you're done. And though they pair wirelessly, they still have a giant wire holding them together which turns out isn't as bad as I thought, especially if you're on the go. Unlike other clunkier models, the soft rubber on the Beats feels light around the neck, even when you're bobbing up and down. They'll stay around your neck all day, whether you're mid-plank at the gym, running the trails outside or just out grabbing coffee. At one point I actually tried to break free but I found they fit more snuggly in the ear than the average ear pods as long as they are in all the way and they are in the right ear because te signage is microscopic. Even if you are not an in the ear kinda person they come with a wide range of accessories. So there is a good chance you will find your perfect it. Adding the wing tips when I ran made me feel more confident that they would not fall out even though I did not really need them Sound quality is great and they're amazing at drowning out ambient noise. But perhaps too amazing. Noise canceling is convenient at the office or on a plane, but when you're out on a street, you wanna remain at least somewhat aware of incoming traffic. Because they have exceptionally good range, you could leave your phone nearby and go about your routine with full control of your music You can pause, skip a track, take a call, or summon Siri right from the side button. Just don't go too far. We got about a quarter of the soccer field away from the phone before we had connectivity issues. And as I approach the half-way point, I just can't hear anything anymore. They held up beyond the eight hours of playback time that's promised on the box. But they often times didn't turn off on their own, so they could have gone even longer. And when they do run out, they're super easy to charge, especially if you're already an Apple user. Lightning cable that's lightning fast. You won't have to worry about knots, but, dirt does seem to be an issue. So take advantage of the darker color options to avoid having to wipe them down every other day. Most of the time, I forgot I was even wearing them. They're comfortable, low maintenance, and I would argue less embarrassing-looking than the ear pods. But just because they're sporty doesn't mean they're cheap, and at the end of the day, you're still paying over $100 for an accessory. [MUSIC]
