The BeatsX in-ear headphones were released in early 2017 and they were significant at the time because they were the first wireless headphones — bar AirPods — to feature Apple’s W1 chip, which allowed them to quickly pair with any iPhone. They were also sweat-resistant, which AirPods weren’t (and still aren’t), so it was much safer to run or workout them. The problem, however, was that at launch the BeatsX were priced at $150, making them a hard sell considering the truly wireless AirPods were just a few bucks more expensive.
Apple has since lowered the price of the BeatsX to $100, which is a pretty good deal for wireless sport headphones as it is. And while you can still get them for $100 on Apple’s website, there are ways of getting an even better deal. For example, eBay is selling new BeatsX headphones for just $75. Even better, you can buy a refurbished pair for less than $40.
