    I’m considering getting one of these products (right now leaning towards Beats X). However, I don’t see any info on the wireless range. Anyone come across this info?

    I'm interested in this too, if you've found anything.

    On the BeatsX product page they state that it uses class 1 Bluetooth. So, if connected to another class 1 device it can theoretically have a range of 100 meters. http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MLYF2LL/A/beatsx-earphones-white

    No idea about the airpods though, as they just mention they are Bluetooth.

    Since they are both using the W1 chip I'd assume it's the same. But only a guess based on my own logic... don't sure if Apple will agree with that logic.

    Noticed the class 1 BT too, unfortunately very few other devices support it. I would expect both items to have average BT range. 10-15m.

    Well that's disappointing... but not terrible. Usually BT is 30 feet.
