Here's a quick review of the BeatsX wireless earphones I've just purchased from the online EE Accessories store. EE sell the black and white versions.
These wireless earphones use the new Apple W1 BlueTooth chip which allows quick connection to any Apple device (iOS 10 or higher, MacOS Sierra or higher or Watch OS3 or higher)
In the box you get 4 different sized ear pieces along with 2 secure fit wing-tips (they help hold the earphones in during exercise etc). There's also a carry case along with a short lightning to USB-A charging cable.
They are very easy to connect and pair. The first time you turn them on and hold them close to your iPhone you get the following:
You simply click the connect button and you are done:
They will then be automatically linked to any other Apple device you have that uses the same iCloudID. My iPad and Macs both show the earphones automatically.
They come with a fast fuel charge where a 5 minute charge gives you 2 hours of playback. A full charge only takes 45 minutes giving 8 hours of playback.
The earbuds are magnetic so you can secure them around your neck when not in use. All the iPhone call functions work through the earphones as well.
You can adjust the volume for both calls and music using the buttons on the BeatsX. You can answer calls using the buttons on the earphones too. You can also play/pause using the buttons.
The sound quality is excellent both both music and calls and they fit very well and do seem to stay in your ears. They feel nice and light too when wearing them.
You have the option to update the firmware when required by downloading a small piece of software on either a Mac or Windows from the Beatsbydre website. You simply plug the BeatsX in using the included lightning to USB-A cable.
You also currently get a free 3 month AppleMusic trial with all Beats headphones.

I can’t wait to get mine they should be arriving on Monday 20 November, hopefully they’ll work as well as yours on my new iPhone X...

Thanks for a thorough review. It seems like mine are faulty because, compared to the regular apple earphones, the sound quality is really bad
I guess I have to go through the whole process of trying to get a new one. sigh.

Good morning @abi101
Thank you for coming to see us
I'm sorry to hear that you are having difficulty with your headphones.
Did you get them from EE, if so when and where from I.E. Store, online or over the phone.
Have you noticed a change in sound quality gradually or has it always been this way?
Have you got an iPhone?
Check Settings >>> Music >>> EQ
See if changing the EQ helps the sound, mine is on Late Night.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I’ve stopped using my BeatsX wireless earphones because they no longer connect to my iPhone X, or any of my other devices...

Hi @Raffaello2017 and welcome back.
Have you tried the following headset reset?

@Lee_H Hello Lee_H, well thank you for your advice, it worked automatically on my iPad Mini 3, unfortunately not so on my iPhone X. It took several attempts for it to connect on that, and once connected was fine for a while then it disconnects which is annoying when you’re having a conversation with someone. Trying to reconnect again is difficult and then the call gets disconnected, so it’s quite frustrating and unreliable to use.
