Apple’s Beats by Dr. Dre introduced the Beats Flex headphones. This happened very timely: just the day before, smartphones of the iPhone 12 family were announced, which, as it turned out, are not equipped with headphones, and the wireless Beats Flex, created on the basis of the Apple W1 chip, are fully compatible with all current Apple products, synchronizing with iCloud. Thus, switching between devices is available, you can also check the battery charge of the headphones and use audio sharing. Android device owners can use the Beats app for the same purpose.
The Beats Flex is powered by multi-layered speakers. They received a two-chamber acoustic design and are located at an optimized angle of inclination. The micro-holes in the case are laser cut. Call quality has also been taken care of – the Beats Flex’s built-in microphone has been fitted with a wind shield for improved voice clarity.
Externally, Beats Flex are similar to the BeatsX model. The headphones are connected by a short neckband with two cable modules. The Beats Flex pauses playback when removed from your ears, and starts playing again when you put them back in. Volume control, playback and telephone communication were placed on the left, and the power button – on the right module. The Flex-Form cable connecting them is lightweight and tangle-free thanks to the titanium-nickel alloy core.
The built-in Li-ion battery will allow the new product to sound for 12 hours after a full charge, and a 10-minute recharge using Fast Fuel technology will add another hour and a half. A USB-C cable is included, as are four pairs of earbuds of different sizes.
BeatsFlex has been announced in four colors: Black, Citrus Yellow, Ash Gray, and Flame Blue. The first two shades will go on sale on October 27th. Secondly, two – at the beginning of next year.
