New Wireless Beats Headphones Powered by W1 Chip Announced

In case you are wondering that Apple has simply stopped making rounds in the Media, especially after the launch of the new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, you are wrong. The reason being, the Cupertino giant couldn’t simply stop there. In other news, Apple later decided to woo audiophiles by expanding the portfolio of the Beats accessories with a new line of wireless earphones.


“Beats has always been dedicated to delivering the best possible music listening experience,” said Beats president Luke Wood. “Now that almost everything we consume in media has a sound component, superior audio playback quality is key. With our new product, we are delivering great design, innovation, and sound so that you can hear everything the way the content creators imagined.”

Powered by the W1 chip, the newly announced Beats products include the BeatsX, Solo3, and Powerbeats3. That aside, these headphones also pack Class 1 Bluetooth, extended battery life, and Fast Fuel charge.

The Powerbeats3 wireless earphones are said to be offering an ideal sound experience in addition to 1 hour of playback with only 5 minutes of charging, thanks to Fast Fuel charge. It comes with a micro-USB cable that makes it possible. Once the earphones are fully charged, they can offer up to 12 hours of extended charge.

Not just that, these earphones are also dust and water resistant. The Powerbeats 3 comes in black, white, siren red, shock yellow and flash blue and costs $199.95 (US). However, it will go on sale this Fall 2016.


If you aren’t really happy with the Powerbeats3, Beats has one more surprise on its way. Yes, we are talking about Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear headphones that can offer a whopping 40 hours of battery life, credit goes to Apple’s efficient W1 chip. Some of the features include support for calling, playing music and activating Siri.

The Solo3, however, is capable of offering around 3 hours of audio playback with the help of simply 5 minutes charging. Available in gloss black, gloss white, gold, silver, rose gold and black colors, the Solo3 costs $299.95 (US). These headphones will go on pre-order starting September 7.


BeatsX, on the other hand, is a pair of lightweight earphones that may turn out to be the best fit for the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users. The best part about the BeatsX is its ability to toggle between iCloud-registered devices. These earphones can seamlessly offer around 2 hours of playback in just 5 minutes of charge, which goes up to 8 hours after 45 minutes of charging with the help of included Lightning cable.

Similar to Powerbeats3, these BeatsX earphones will also be available by this Fall 2016 at a cost of $149.95 (US) in black and white colors.
