Awesome alternative to AirPods (I don't like the way they fit my ears). Also, I prefer the wire between headphone design to prevent me from losing them. Also, I can't find another brand of Bluetooth headphones to work well with my iPhone.
If I could give this negative stars, I would! First, you have no way of charging this item because the plug is not a standard USB. You have to buy a different adapter to be able to charge this! Dumb, dumb, dumb! Then I spent the next ten minutes trying to keep it in my ear. I was so frustrated that I almost got back in my car (within the hour of purchasing it) to return this and the wireless Beats Pro that I bought with it!! Absolute waste of my time.
I currently own BeatsX [Discontinued now] so I am comparing these Beats Flex to Beats X
Comfort - I would say these Yuzu Yellow Beats Flex are overall 'fair' quality. I always have these around the back of my neck hanging down at work and they're not as 'heavy' as my originals. The price difference is about $50+. I purchased my beats X for about $110 + a while back and are now discontinued.
Beats flex are replacement for Beats X So the pricing is understandable.
Quality/Feel - In comparison to Beats X these feel a bit more flimsy [not much] they have a lighter weight/plastic feel to it. The back of the ear buds arent as flat and are more rounded.
Controls -The buttons require a little bit of feeling around for. You have to run your fingers until you feel the '- +' buttons.
Sound Quality - The sound quality for music is really nice, they sound identical to Beats X. I won other brand headphones and these overall are B+
Phone Calls - Ive had some white noise while talking on the phone , maybe that's just me.
I got these for working out at the gym. I wanted a mid quality pair of headphones that would sound decent for workouts but wouldn’t make me cry if they eventually broke from getting covered in sweat all the time. The comfort is pretty good but they fall out more than I’d like. I wish they had an option for some kind of ear hooks even if they were a $10 accessory so they would stay in better but others may not experience this. I occasionally have some trouble connecting with my phone even though I have an 11 Pro Max but I like that I can see the battery percentage from my phone. Overall these do what I wanted them to and have decent sound quality, with a couple of quirks that can maybe be addressed in a updated version.
Had to buy these in store when the shipping monster ate the ones I wanted. I chose these b/c they pair with my Apple products easily and the cord that connects the ear buds is more substantial than similar products from other manufacturers. The amount of different ear pieces (4 pairs) included is nice.
The auto start/stop when you put together/pull apart the ear buds is a nice feature.
I have not made any calls with these so I can't comment on call quality.
It's not explicitly stated in the instructions anywhere but to turn them off hold the button on the bottom of the right side (the one that lights up) for ~2 sec. Once you have done it a few times you will start to understand the "power off" sound.
