Beats Revamps Wireless Headphones Line-Up
The Dr. Dre-founded Beats has introduced a brand new range of wireless headphones -- including the new BeatsX, Powerbeats3 and Solo3 Wireless. All three boast Bluetooth connectivity, while using Apple's specially designed W1 chip -- the same one found in the AirPods, allowing "Fast Fuel" charging for each.
The tiny BeatsX offers eight hours of battery life and about two hours on a super fast five-minute charge; the Powerbeats3 offers an hour of playback after five minutes of charging time and up to twelve hours of playback when fully charged; and finally, the Solo3 boasts a whopping 40 hours of battery life and three hours via a five minute Fast Fuel charge.
The BeatsX, Powerbeats3, and Solo3 Wireless will retail for $150, $200 and $300 USD, respectively. All are coming soon, but the Solo3 is already available for pre-order via Apple.com.
