    Can't wait! Wish there was a more specific release date.

    If only they would put more effort into the quality of their products rather than the power of endorsement but then that doesn't sell the product does it?

    We don't know for sure though?? This is the first new design since Apple took over. Everything else has been around for a while.

    I just like the idea of having a lightning port so I don't have to look for my micro USB cable to charge.

    But yes... Old Beats were crap.

    First I have heard/seen of the BeatsX. I was waiting for the Jaybird X3's to replace my BlueBuds, might get these instead.

    These are basically urBeats, which are the worst and cheapest Beats headphones and only one step up from the ones that come in the box.

    Oh cool, you have come to that conclusion based on access to a pre-release pair? Tell us more!

    The W1 chip is what makes all the difference. Sure, you could get some comparable brand that probably has the same sound quality as the X's, but if you listen to music on multiple Apple devices then the W1 is a good investment.

    Do you think the sound isolation will be better on the beatsx than powerbeats?

    Yes, me too.

    At first I was all over the Airpods, now I'm considering the BeatsX. I've always used the stock Apple earbuds, but now want wireless. I mostly use them for conference calls, working out (running) and some music. Which ones would be more practical and useful for me?

    I've been back and forth too. This will be my first set of wireless headphones. I will use them mostly for podcasts, a small amount of music and phone calls when at home.

    Moderate to low sound quality easily achieved on multiple devices is not that big a seller for me. As others said, first the quality must be in order, a first for Beats, then we'll see.
    But the same sound-related reservations make me want to not buy the Airpods.
