Bluetooth ranges per class:

  • Class 2 – 10 meters (33 ft.)
  • Class 3 – 1 meter (3 ft.)

These are the ideal ranges, but inside buildings, range will be reduced due to reflections and obstacles such as walls, furniture, etc.

What is Fast Fuel?

This quick charge feature gives your Beats two hours of battery life from a five-minute charge.

What is RemoteTalk?

This low-profile three-button remote makes it easy to do everything you need to with your Beats. Control audio volume, answer and end calls, decline them if you don’t want to talk, place calls on hold or activate voice commands.

You can also play and pause songs, or skip forward and backward through your playlist.

Fully compatible with iOS devices, but functionality on others may vary.

What is LED Fuel Gauge?

Tapping the power button activates the Fuel Gauge, which shows exactly how much charge remains in the battery. Don’t get caught tuneless.

What is a Beam Forming Microphone?

By using multiple microphone elements, an area or beam is created, focusing the received voice or audio and rejecting sound from outside the beam. This results in much clearer audio with much less interference.

What is Dual-Mode Adaptive Noise Canceling?

Microphones pick up sounds from the environment, then the headphones produce a cancelling frequency (out of phase) to reduce or eliminate the offending noise. The intensity of this created output is monitored by the circuit in order not to affect sound quality. When you aren’t listening to music, the circuit increases intensity to block all outside noise.

What are W1-enabled headphones?

The W1 chip is a Bluetooth implementation created by Apple. First, pair it with your iPhone, then use iCloud to sync to your other Apple devices. Using the Class 1 Bluetooth standard, W1 greatly increases both battery life and wireless range.

Beats Solo 3, Powerbeats 3 and Beats X all have the W1 chip. Although created by Apple, W1 is compatible with all brands of Bluetooth-compatible devices.
