BeatsX wireless headphones landed three years ago as the first Beats product to feature Apple’s W1 chip and Lightning charging port like the original AirPods. The $149 headphones eventually dropped in price by $50, and today Beats Flex are replacing BeatsX for $100 less than their original launch price.
Beats Flex wireless headphones still use Apple’s original W1 chip like BeatsX, although the Lightning port has been replaced with a USB-C port (like the iPad Pro and iPad Air) to better service Android users.
