Beats by Dr. Dre today announced a host of new wireless products, expanding the brand’s portfolio to include a new line of wireless earphones called BeatsX along with the introduction of Powerbeats3 Wireless earphones and Beats Solo3 Wireless headphones. As a collection, these new products include the Apple W1 chip, Class 1 Bluetooth, Fast Fuel charge and the sound fans around the world have come to expect from Beats products.
BeatsX is a new line of earphones, featuring a simplistic, light design and nearly unnoticeable while wearing. Compatible with both iOS and Android devices, BeatsX features Class 1 Bluetooth connectivity. For iOS10 users, the Apple W1 chip provides an one-step Bluetooth connection and the added ability to toggle between iCloud-registered devices. BeatsX sets a new standard for battery efficiency with Fast Fuel, which provides 2 hours of playback after just 5 minutes of charging and up to 8 hours after just 45 minutes of charging via the included Lightning cable. The RemoteTalk allows you to take calls, play music and activate Siri. The Flex-Form cable and variety of eartip and removable wingtip options provide a flexible and comfortable fit during use. When you’re not using the earphones, magnetic ear buds keep them tangle-free around your neck, and they coil to fit into a carrying case.
BeatsX will be available this Fall 2016 in black and white for $149.95 (US). At launch, BeatsX will be available in black and white, with additional colors to follow.
