      Stylish, comfortable but poor sound quality.

      After thorough research and as per my preferences, I decided to purchase this pair. I took the refurbished one as it was affordable. I really liked the design and the way it sits on your neck. The cable stays straight and does not tangle. So, if you are a commuter and need a comfortable wireless pair and are not really bothered with sound quality then this is the one. I got disappointed with the sound quality because it has a lot of bass which ruins all the rhythm and softness of a song. If you only listen to hip hop and rap stuff, this should sound great to you. But if you are a soft listener (like me), you will not like the sound quality. Moreover, beats audio should introduce an app like jaybird where you can tweak the settings and get the desired result. Unfortunately, there are no pairs in the market with such comfort and great sound quality so I have to trade off sound for comfort. I thought of returning it and get a jaybird x3 but after getting reviews, I came to a conclusion that jaybird x3 is specifically focused on active use. It does sound good (I mean really good!) but it is not as comfortable if you want to use it while traveling on a bus, train or just taking a walk. And as far as performance is concerned of a refurbished product, it is working fine up till now. Connectivity is great. Though, I am an android user but haven't experienced any problem yet. But it doesn't connect to two devices simultaneously so I have to connect it every time when I switch from my cellphone to laptop. One more thing, I really like the magnet tips so you can just stick them together and form a beats necklace when you are not using them so it remains safe and you don't have to worry about losing it. Hope this helps. Take care!

      I have difficulty in general finding earbud designs that will stay secure in my ears AND be comfortable at the same time. With the growing trend to wireless sets from the traditional wired designs, I didn't want to do an extensive search for a set to use during working hours and a different set to use while exercising. Enter the BeatsX. I realize these have been out for quite some time but I have a tendency to arrive fashionably late to parties anyway. I found a Geek Squad refurbished deal, and thought it was worth a try. Pairing with my iPhone 6S+ was a breeze (my first experience with the W1 concept) and within a couple of days I'd already had several calls under my belt for work related purposes. I prefaced each call with a request that if anything sounded "off" on the other end, to please let me know. No one ever did. I also finally dabbled in listening to some music and audio books, and the sound was pristine to me on those as well. I especially love the buds being magnetized so that when I'm not using them, I can easily connect them and tuck them under my shirt so they're out of the way. Charging via Lightning cable rounds out the convenience of these. I'm not a huge audiophile these days like I was in my younger years, but I definitely love the sound on this set for phone calls, music and audio books. Battery life seems to be about what's promised as well.

      These earphones purchased via Best Buy's refurbished sales have been excellent. Set up with my iPhone was extremely easy. The phone detected them right away and popped up a selection asking if Wanted house them, and it was done. Via Apple's iCloud service, that was sent to all my other Apple devices, so the earphones were immediately available to them, also. Very handy! Sound on these is decent. The earphones comes with three different styles of rubber tips so you can customize the sound type to your liking. The cone type sounded more treble to me, while the larger ones I use provide more bass sound. Wingtips are also provided to put on also to make them more secure in your ears. The rubberized cord feels nice around my neck, although it seems to hang weirdly when I'm listening -- but I don't have to look at them, so, whatever. :) Well worth the sale money!

      Missing Items!!!

      I bought these Refurbished Beats X due to the price. When I received the package, I opened it, noticed that there were the stock ear pieces missing, no biggie, I usually use the other ear tips anyways due to my weirdly shaped ears. But, I was also missing the lightning to USB cable! How the heck am I supposed to charge my beats! Beware of these so called Refurbished items, most of them don't even come with everything in them. Also, the carrying case was a bit dirty, looks like Geek Squad aren't so clean nor care about how the package is packed because everything was out of place. I will return these and no longer buy anything "Geek Squad Refurbished."

      I needed small headphones for my wife and I that would work great in my motorcycle helmet and these are great for that. I also like how balanced they are and I don't have to continually shift the cord around on my neck. These little headphones are great for their size if and only if you use the largest ear buds you can to seal the sound in. I originally used the medium buds and the sound from these was pretty terrible. I then did some research online because I couldn't believe that they would put out a product that produced such bad sound. I found that if you use the large buds then the seal on your ear is true and the sound produced from the headphones is represented much MUCH better. I was going to return these until I did this, now I love them.

      i think my title speaks for itself. i, like an idiot, lost these headphones by dropping them on the ground. i spent the money to re-purchase them immediately after. if that isn't a testimonial, i don't know what is. yes, these headphones are costly, but they're worth it. i ride public transportation every day and its very loud, very crowded, and always busy. these headphones pretty much cancel out every sound in the universe. the battery lasts a pretty good amount of time. i ride the train for 1.5 hours daily and these last for me for days on end without being charged. initially i was under the impression that these headphones really wouldn't be good; i think it was all the celebrity hype and them being expensive. but i really can't live without them now. i loooove these headphones and will continue to purchase beats!

      I expected them to be more base heavy, knowing Beats reputation, and I like bass, but the nicely balanced sound I am getting is fine. I like the sturdy construction. I like the neck wrap part. I like the little silicone case, it’s very cleverly designed. One thing I don’t like is that the on button is small and shallow, so it is a bit difficult to find with my fingers. It does not give a very positive click when pressed, so I am never really sure if I pressed it. Then, there is a haphazardly delayed period before the unit gives a series of tones saying it is on, or paired, whatever, so I am often finding myself repressing the on button, perhaps turning the unit off again. Seems like shoddy design, considering it is coming from Apple. Apple usually thinks through interface problems like that, I thought.

      Not Bad!

      I’m growing to like this headset. I had a pair or wired Beats earbuds that I absolutely loved but they died. I bought these to replace them and was a little disappointed but they’ve grown on me. The older earbuds fit straight in the ear canal, these new ones go straight in but the bud body angles slightly. I like the magnet backs to keep around my neck. I’m not too fond of a wire still if it’s “wireless” but it isn’t too bad. My wired earbuds had a LOT more bass than these wireless earbuds. I will say this is my primary disappointment! I listen to a wide variety of music but the tones don’t sound as complete since the bass contributions are lower. The charge holds for a long time and there is an audible alert when the battery is low. Pairs like any other Bluetooth device without issue. I’ve connected this to my 2 phones and iPads without issue.
