What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Beats BeatsX Wireless In-Ear Headphones
  • Great sound. Wear them around my neck all day When not in my ears and forget they are there
  • Light weight, comes with lots of different ear pieces, tight fitting to drowned out outside noise.
  • These headphones are light weight and easy to use.
  • They fit well out of the box and have several sizes an ear hooks in case they are needed.
  • I love the way they fit together around your neck when not in ears.
  • Great quality. Bad physical fit. Personally I do not like the stiff wire behind my neck.
Apple AirPods Wireless Headphones
  • I was concerned about them falling out, I can't make them fall out fit is great.
  • I really like how they feel secure in my ear! Great sound quality!

  • The air pods fit perfectly. I don't have to worry about wires from the phone or behind my head.
  • Love how it fits and the sound. Last a long time and charges pretty fast.

What customers say about "Features"
Beats BeatsX Wireless In-Ear Headphones
  • They feel like I'm not wearing any headphones while running and the battery life is very reasonable.
  • Great sound quality. I thought the beatsx would be poor quality air buds. The sound proved me wrong + I love the fast pairing with my iPhone.
  • The sound isn’t as strong as I thought and the battery lifespan isn’t as good either
  • The sound on these is fantastic. It truly has noise cancelling at it's finest.
  • I wear mine most of the day for business calls. The Bluetooth has always worked. Setup was easy. Wear it to listen to iHeart and music on walks. No problems.
Apple AirPods Wireless Headphones
  • Has great sound and best feature is battery life. Small,sleek and great fit.
  • I like the sound and lack of wires. These were never proposed to be noise cancelling so the ability to hear surrounding noise keeps me aware of rooms where I should be listening but want to hear the music or in a store.
  • These headphones sound better than the headphones bundled with the iPhone. Great quality and easy set up with all Apple devices.
  • For an in ear nice sound deep base and stays in ear no fear of them falling out.
  • The sound quality of the AirPods is incredible. Battery life is great too.
