Apple fans will not wait any longer as the sale of the Apple AirPods continue before the year ends. Earlier this month, the wireless earphones went on sale but stocks easily got sold out causing more delays to the rest of the customers.

Release period

However, it seems that Apple want to solve the issue before 2017 starts as those who pre-ordered the accessory have already received shipping information over the weekend through their e-mail addresses. It may just be a few more days or weeks before they receive their orders. Apple is targeting to release the AirPods until February.

What about the Beats X?

The Apple AirPods was expected to be released a few months before but Apple wanted to make necessary adjustments first to the device before releasing it to the public. If the Apple is already releasing its AirPods, the Beats X wireless earphones is a different story.

Recent reports claim that the new audio accessory may still take about two to three months before it can be released. Apple is said to be making the wireless earbuds available in February 2017.

Selling for $150, the Beats X earphones is considered to be one of the best wireless earphones in the market. It comes with a guaranteed 8 hours battery life which can provide you music for the entire day.

One of its key features is the fast charging capability. Five minutes of charging on low battery gives a user 2 hours of music playback.

Pricey replacement

On the other hand, the Apple AirPods is powered by a W1 chip and can provide music for 5 straight hours with just a single charge. However, users are reminded not to lose one of the earbuds as it will cost them $69.

The AirPods cost $159 but replacing all components of the accessory would cost one a whopping $207. Are you excited to grab your own pair of Apple AirPods?
