Apple Beats announces Beats Flex headphones with USB-C and 12-hour battery life
Apple announced this Tuesday, October 13 the Beats Flex Bluetooth headphones, which arrive to replace the BeatsX and have the proposal to offer a relatively affordable price. The gadgets promise 12 hours of battery life, with charging via USB-C. There are four color options: black, yellow, gray, and blue.
The new Flex Beats are equipped with the W1 chip (the same as the first AirPods) and can be quickly paired with iPhones and iPads. However, they are not compatible with “Eh Siri” voice control, which is only available for headphones with an H1 chip, like the Beats Solo Pro, nor with active noise cancellation.
The headphones feature a new layered driver and dual-camera acoustics that promise balanced and clear sound. There’s also an advanced digital processor to deliver personalized bass, along with mic-level enhancements that should allow for better quality calls.

The Flex Beats is compatible with audio sharing, which allows you to share audio from an iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV with other Beats or AirPods. During the process, each user can operate the volume control separately on their own device.
Beats Flex has a lightweight cable that connects the two headphones and stays around the user’s neck. Beats promises the freedom and comfort of listening to music even without the TWS design, and there are four rubber tip options to choose from to choose the one that best suits your ear.
It is also more convenient to listen to or pause a song: when the headphones are hung on the neck, the sound is immediately interrupted. Playback is automatically activated when the user places the headset on the ear.
The Flex Beats promises up to 12 hours of battery life, plus a quick charge that should play an hour and a half of music with just 10 minutes of charge.
