Like AirPods, Apple’s BeatsX wireless earphones were first announced at the company’s iPhone 7 event in September. Unlike AirPods, however, they have yet to be released. That could change very soon, according to iStockNow.
Long popular with customers looking for the latest iPhone, iStockNow offers live inventory tracking for key Apple products including AirPods, MacBook, and Apple Watch.
According to the site, Apple’s online store is “all ready” for the BeatsX product launch. Additionally, they’ve noticed “some activity” for the product on BestBuy’s U.S. website.
The $149.95 BeatsX wireless headphones feature the Apple W1 chip, which is also found on AirPods. Other features include:
- An eight-hour battery with Fast Fuel, which gives you two hours of playback from a five minute charge
- RemoteTalk, allowing you to take calls with a built-in mic, play music, adjust volume, and activate Siri
- Launching in black and white
- Lightning charging
Unlike AirPods, BeatsX earphones use a wire between each bud. They also feature an in-ear design similar to the one found on the company’s UrBeats wired headphones.
We’ll continue to follow this story and let you know when BeatsX wireless earphones finally launch.
