    When you are using both the airpods, audio comes to both pod.
    But 1 mic is only used when talking. You can set it to automatic or you can set it manually (always left / always right) in the settings using your iphone.

    it really depends on the user. if we are talking sound quality hands down beat X will eat the airpods alive.
    but having an earphone without any wires is a very big plus for the airpods...

    it all boils down to preference. if you like the freedom of having no wires but the sound quality is just so so then go for airpods
    but if you like the bass and the sound quality then go for the beat X.

    in my opinion i like the airpods because of it being true wireless since im not really a sound freak guy. but BOTH are good buys still!!

    My wife has the Beats X and I have the Airpods. She likes the isolation on the Beats X but I hate its muddy bass.

    for me right now, it's Beats X < Airpods < ATH M50x

    The sound of the Airpods depend on how well they fit your ears

    i have both beats x and airpods, the beats x is great while commuting, while the airpods is great while watching at home... both work great for casual runs. In terms of sound quality, i'd say they are both above average for a bluetooth headset, and a great alternative when you are in places you cant use or are not comfortable bringing out and using your expensive earphones/headphones. Both serve different purposes, but if i had to choose only one, i would have to go with the beats x because it is just more versatile. I still love the airpods though and is definitely a keeper, there's just something "high tech" with literally having no wires, plus its battery life is great and connection is seamless as always when taking out of the case.

    Awesome opinion guys! Since I won't be upgrading my phone this year. Might as well just buy Airpods then and keep both :)
