    So I really like the idea of the AirPods, but I only find the EarPods moderately comfortable for any kind of extended use so I am hesitant to drop AirPod money and not be comfortable wearing them long term. I really was hoping the Beats X would be out before or near the AirPods so I could possibly try them both out and decide but the more I read about the AirPods the less I want to wait.

    Anyone else trying to hold out and pick up the Beats X to try first?

    While I purchased a pair of AirPods I'll also be purchasing a pair of Beats X. I have a pair of urBeats and really like them. I'll be using the X for music, movies, games and walks. The AirPods for everything else.

    I had no resolve, ordered some AirPods from Verizon today and will have them Thursday to try out will give it a week to see how I like them before I decide if I should return or if I'll probably just end up with the beats x also.

    I've had my airpods almost two weeks now but I'm definitely looking forward to getting the BeatsX. Don't want to be caught by surprise like I was with the airpods so I'm checking the app all the time!

    I am starting to think these BeatX things are some mythical item....never to be seen. Any update on timeframe for these mysterious EarPods?

    What I missing here. Is amazon taking pre orders? Are those the dates they estimate for release day ? I'm confused lol.

    Edit: Needless today, I ordered them.

    Phone calls/ group chats, podcasts, whenever I'm not solely focusing on the media I'm consuming. I'd like a bit more low end for games/movies and the X can provide that for example. I'm making an effort to switch to in ears except for new album releases and making music. Then I bust out the M50x.

    I went ahead and placed the order. Who knows maybe I'll get lucky! I'm still going to keep checking Best Buy and the Apple Store app just in case they get them first.

    so let me get this straight, you will listen to music, movies, and games on your beatsx, but if you get a call or the itch to listen to podcasts, you will switch to airpods?

    seems inconvenient to me. But hey, do you!

    I am struggling for this very reason because I love the beats X from what I see. But I don't know where I will draw the line on using each -- for the sake of convenience

    I did the same lol. Need another pair for snowboarding. (My excuse) to justify my purchase for another pair of headphones.

    I own multiple pairs of headphones currently and don't find it inconvenient. You're telling me you'd have an hour long phone call with noise cancelling ear buds? That would drive me nuts lol.

    Thanks for posting this. I placed an order as well.

    I have the AirPods, but I prefer the BeatsX. I have a pair of Plantronics bluetooth earbuds that I always use, and the BeatsX have the same style. I like that it's in-ear to block noise and a wire to keep it them from falling.

    I was gonna wait until the beatsx come out next month, but I decided to pick up the Bose soundsport wireless earbuds. I don't think the beatsx are gonna sound as good or be as comfortable as the bose soundsport wireless. I've tried the jaybird x3's and the AirPods. I like the Bose soundsport wireless the best so far.

    How would the Bose be more comfortable if the earbuds are significantly bigger and heavier?

    Are the quality of the Beats something that is still debated, or have they gotten better over time? I have always heard mixed reviews on the sound and build quality.

    I was definitely more interested in these than the Airpods, but from what I have heard in the past I was hesitant to wait on the release and ultimately looked elsewhere. While going completely wireless has been nice, I do miss being able to just pop the headphones out and have them draped around the neck. If reviews are really positive I will probably check these out.
