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.
Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
  • Needless worry, they are very light weight and have the same type of soft yet durable wing that fits comfortably in your ear that the wired ones have.
  • For the price and sound quality it's well worth it. Comfortable and lightweight. If the chord could be a bit longer it would make movement easier.
  • Light weight, fit great, and sound awesome.
  • Great, light weight and a must have for work outs.
  • Comfortable. Fits in my ear much better than my lg pro.

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.
Bose SoundSport Wireless Headphones
  • Long battery life and great sound. Definitely recommend
  • Great sound, average battery life. I bought to connect to Samsung SUHD TV. Wife sleeps and I crank it up. Pairs with TV, but Dish Hopper can't find it.
  • Good sound quality for listening to music and clear for calls, easy blue tooth pairing.
  • Doesn't block external noise (great for walking the dog and not getting hit by cars)
  • Good battery life but not sure they would make it through a cross country flight.
  • Battery life is nowhere near as long as Bose says in the manual or description.
  • Battery life is fine but not so long that you don't have to remember to charge after a work out or two.
