    Hi All,

    Would you know when the Beats X will be released in the Philippines? It seems that this is a better choice for me vs the airpods. Its slightly cheaper than airpods too. 150usd vs. 159 usd :)

    Sigh, I'm waiting on the Beats Solo 3 as well.... I can't get any news on the release dates in Ph! UGH! It's killing me :(

    Meanwhile, I'm still torn between the two... my only inclination towards Beats X earphones is that it's available in black. :LOL:

    I wish they produced AirPods in any shade of black. I'm afraid that by the time my decision is made, they'll suddenly pop up in the market and ensue buyer's remorse...

    Actually no, it's not just the colour because I can't be sure if any of the Beats X earbuds will even fit inside my ear. I've tried in-ear headphones before and none of them matched my ear. Meanwhile, the EarPods match mine almost perfectly.

    really? black Air Pods?! and just as shiny in jet black maybe? now that'd be worth the wait if only for the color and compatibility's sake! hehehe!

    I'd mark out so much if they actually announce them in black. In a perfect world, the delay for the AirPods is in part due to the manufacturing of the black variant. :p Unfortunately, they might be looking to manage Beats exactly for this reason: to offer different colours while keeping their official earphones white much like many of their prevailing accessories.

    I'm still wishing though! I mean... who among us with a black unit wouldn't want something like this one? Okay, so maybe it'll be even easier to lose them but still... :ROFLMAO:

    Just tried visiting the Power Mac Center in Robinson's Magnolia today and they had the Beats Solo 3! I'm so happy!
    I wasn't expecting it to be there!

    I would also prefer Beats X over the AirPods. I hope Digital Walker / Beyond The Box would be selling these soon.

    Awesome. I thought that they'd jack the price up since I remember the Solo 2's were much more expensive.

    Wow, Not bad! Hopefully they release the Beats X too. I like the beats solo 3 too but i prefer earphones due to portability. How is the sound quality of the beats solo 3?

    The sound quality is good for me but I'm just a casual listener... I mostly listen to Top 40 songs sooo its so freakin' good! Prior to the solo 3 I was using the Power Beats 2 and man, I ain't going back! :)
