Apple announced the launch of Beats Flex, the company’s most affordable premium wireless earphones to date. The Beats Flex look very similar to their predecessor, BeatsX, but there’s one notable design difference: The inline microphone and control module has been removed and incorporated into a module lower on the cord that rests at the base of the neck. As a result, the earphones should feel better balanced. The magnetic in-ear headphones feature auto-play and auto-pause functions with a Flex-Form cable made of a resilient nickel-titanium alloy designed to provide maximum comfort. Layered drivers deliver deep base and ultra-low distortion to guarantee the sound desired. One tap lets the user share audio with other Beats headphones or AirPods.
Users will get up to 12 hours of playtime per battery charge and a 10-minute quick charge provides another 1.5 hours of listening pleasure. The built-in microphone has wind reduction features to ensure you are heard when making or taking a call. The Beats Flex come with four sizes of eartips and a USB-C charging cable. Beats Black and Yuzu Yellow can be preordered now. Two other colorways, Smoke Gray and Flame Blue, will be available in early 2021.
