Our take on the Beats Wireless™

by David Brown
Beats Wireless headphones

The Beats Wireless headphones feature music and phone controls on the earcup.

Bring the Beats, leave the wires

Get the high-performance Beats sound without getting caught in the cord. Beats Wireless headphones offer Bluetooth® connectivity for easy hands-free control of your compatible mobile device while delivering the thundering bass and detailed highs that Beats is famous for.

Wireless listening and talking is easily controlled with convenient buttons located on the right earcup. Make and answer phone calls, pause and play your music, or skip around between and within tracks while your mobile device remains safely stowed in a pocket or bag. You can even enable voice dialing on supported phones. A tiny microphone on the base of the right earcup —not a cumbersome protruding mic arm — captures your voice and translates it into clear speech for voice dialing and phone calls. Can't go wireless? Then plug the included cable into the minijack and you're ready for wired listening.

Lightweight and stylish, Beats Wireless are built for music lovers who want their music to follow them everywhere. The built-in battery, charged via the supplied USB cable, provides hours of music playback and phone use. Fold them up and stick them in the included touring case to take these headphones wherever you go. But as wearable as these sleek 'phones are, you'll probably keep them on your ears.

Highlights:

  • Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and music playback
  • built-in earcup buttons for phone and music control (talk/hangup, play/pause, next/back, fast-forward/rewind and volume control)
  • USB Micro cable for charging internal battery
  • includes headphone cable with in-line microphone and remote for wired use
  • fold-up design for easy storage
  • padded storage case included
  • anti-microbial cleaning cloth included
  • talk/listening time: up to 10 hours
  • standby time: up to 100 hours
  • Bluetooth range: 33 feet
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Features

Wireless Headphones: Beats Wireless headphones have the same sound quality as the famous Beats by Dr. Dre, but can be used without the headphone cable. You can stream audio from your laptop or any other Bluetooth-enabled device, or conduct phone calls from your Bluetooth-enable phone up to 33 feet away. A standard Beats headphone cable is included to let you use your Beats Wireless in passive mode to listen to your favorite digital music files from your non-Bluetooth devices, or conduct phone conversations from your smartphone.

Bluetooth: Beats Wireless headphones support SBC, APT-X, and AAC Bluetooth:

  • Bluetooth Specification 2.1 + EDR
  • Headset Profile (HSP) V 1.2
  • Hands-Free Profile (HFP) V 1.5
  • Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) V 1.0
  • Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) V 1.0

On-board Controls: When in active wireless mode, you can use the controls on the right earcup to control your music or phone calls. Music controls include play/pause, next/previous song, and fast forward/fast reverse. Phone controls include voice dialing (if your phone has the feature), answer/end a call, mute/un-mute, and switch call from headset to phone or phone to headset.

In-Line Remote Control: The Beats Wireless includes a headphone cable with an in-line remote control and microphone designed for use with most smartphones, including iPhone and Android devices. Playback controls for iPod, iPhone, and iPad include play/pause, next/previous track, fast forward/fast reverse, and volume +/-. Phone controls for iPhone include answer call, hang up call, decline incoming call, use call waiting, and use voice activation features. Playback and phone controls for other devices are more limited than those of Apple i-devices.

Battery: The headphones have a built-in rechargeable battery which provides approximately 10 hours of talk/music playback time, and approximately 100 hours of standby time on a full charge. The battery charges in approximately 1 hour via the included micro-USB cable.

Tri-Fold Design: Beats Wireless headphones are compact, lightweight and ready for your active lifestyle, gym work out, or frequent travel. The tri-fold design allows them to fit into the included compact carrying case.

Natural Fit: Soft, on-ear cushions comfort your ears and form an acoustic seal that keeps the sound in and noise out.
