Be ready for anything
Whether you're listening to music, taking calls or scrolling your social feed, always be ready for what's next with Beats Flex. Never miss a thing with earbuds that automatically play music when they’re in your ears and pause when they’re secured around your neck(1). And the Flex-Form cable and choice of ear tips will make sure you’re comfy, all day long. Don't worry about knotted wires at the bottom of your bag – the magnetic earbuds keep Beats Flex tangle-free ready to grab and go for next time.
Make the connection
Used to your headphones cutting off halfway through your commute? Or in the middle of a long shift? Beats Flex is powered by the Apple W1 chip, so you can be sure they won’t let you down with seamless connectivity(2). And with up to 12 hours(4) of listening time, you'll be able to binge your favourite box set wherever you are. Need a little boost on the go? Get up to one and a half hours of power, when you charge your Beats Flex for just ten minutes.
