While Apple made a large number of customers happy this morning with news that the company’s much-anticipate AirPod earbuds are now available for deliver before Christmas, it has disappointed possibly an equal number of customers by confirming its all-new BeatsX wireless headphones have been delayed until February.
The BeatsX headphones had been expected to debut in the Fall, but Apple’s website now shows “Coming in February” as the expected time for the product to hit shelves. The $150 wireless headphones connect to Apple devices via Bluetooth, and use the same Apple-made W1 chip used in Apple’s AirPods wireless earbuds. Unlike the completely wireless AirPods, the BeatsX earbuds are tethered to each other by a Flex-Form cable.
The BeatsX headphones are expected to offer up to 8 hours of battery life on a single charge, and offers a “Fast Fuel” feature that will provide 2 hours of listening on a 5-minute charge. The headsets offers an in-line Remote and Mic, which allows users to take calls, activate Siri, and control music playback. They will be available in black or white, and include a pocket-sized carrying case in the package.
Earlier today, Apple confirmed its much-anticipated AirPod wireless earbuds could be under your tree on Christmas morning. They are now available in the Apple online store, and are currently showing free delivery for December 21st.
