With Apple’s music released early this year, it took the music industry to a whole new level. Before apple music made its way into the market, Spotify and panda are the only two rules of an entire music industry. When apple made entry into the music industry, there was a big shift from Spotify and panda to Apple music. Apple’s music service became reputed for offering premium quality bit rate at minimal subscription plans.
Apple music service paved way for the collaboration with other services and products that take advantage of the music service. One company that benefited the most from the collaboration is Beats by Dr. Dre. Beats were very well noted globally for offering the best quality earphones and headphones. Beats advertising strategy played very well in promoting its products to the world. The company approached reputed musicians in the industry and asked them to endorse their product. In such a way beats became well verse.
Apple’s BeatsX headphones

There were rumors that Apple iPhone 6 successor models, 7 and 7 plus will not have 3.5mm headphone jack and it’ll be replaced with USB type-c lightening cable. When iPhone 7 and 7 plus was first announced in September this year, it became the much-anticipated phone. The rumor of iPhone 7 and 7 plus not having headphone jack was finally confirmed when a keynote was made. Soon headphone manufacturing industries redesigned their products that can take advantage of USB type-c lightening port on iPhone 7 and 7 plus.
Like LG, Bose that manufactured headphones and earphones with USB type-c connector instead of 3.5mm jack, Beats too manufactured listening devices that are compatible with the latest iPhone version. The problem with these headsets is that they are only compatible with fewer versions of smartphones. While the entire mobile industry is taking small steps towards the shift, the transition rate is not as expected.
This is where users expected a new design of ear and headphones that can be compatible with both USB type-c and 3.5mm jack paired devices. That’s when Bluetooth earphones and headphones made their way into the market and seen a huge success in sales.
While there are plenty of Bluetooth ear and headphones to choose from, like Jaybird freedom, Jaybird X2, BeatsX from Beats remained the favorite for everyone.
