After being delayed for a couple of months, Apple finally released the BeatsX wireless earbud last week. For those who purchase the earbuds or select Beats products, Apple will give customers three months free of Apple Music.
Inside the box of select Beats products has a card with a code on it, the code is good for a three-month trail of Apple Music, and requires customers to register their Beats produce over on Beats By Dre website. After registering their headphones, users plug-in the code to get an Apple Music gift card good for three-months. This offer will apply to both new and existing Apple Music subscribers.
The card is featured in select Beats products such as BeatX earphones, Powerbeats3, Solo3, Studio Wireless, and the Pill+ speaker.
The new $150 BeatsX wireless earbud isn’t entirely wireless like Apple’s AirPods, the earphones have a wire that users wrap around the back of their neck. However, these earphones connect to the user’s phone via Bluetooth thanks to Apple’s W1 chip. The W1 chip, which is featured in the AirPods, allows for easy pairing and better stability with devices.
