Why We Like It

A solid pair of headphones are a must-have for any international travel. The hours spent waiting in terminals, sitting on planes, or even just relaxing after a day of exploring, zoning out to your favorite music helps the time to pass a little quicker. After doing a fair amount of research I landed on the BeatsX because of their compact size, quick charge feature, and seamless iPhone integration. While I have only had these headphones a few months, I have not been disappointed. They sound great, provide good noise isolation, and take up almost no space in my bag. The only qualm I have is that the main control button can be difficult to press sometimes.
