When it comes to wireless bluetooth headphones, I’m of the opinion that one model reigns supreme as being the biggest bang for your buck: Beats Flex. Unveiled in September 2020, the new style made waves for being Beats’ most affordable offering to date. Normally $50, I have good news for anyone in need of a headphone upgrade as Amazon currently has the new Beats Flex headphones on sale for the first time ever for a low price of $39.99.
Having jumped at the opportunity to test a pair back in September, I can attest to Beats Flex being a game-changer in design functionality and overall quality. Boasting 12 hours of battery life, crystal clear sound, a super comfy feel, and the ability to get 45 minutes of charge in just 5 minutes, I’d go as far to say that Beats Flex are some of the best headphones I’ve ever tested (and the team at Men’s Health agrees). I’ve worn my yellow pair on long runs, work zooms (they have a built-in microphone), eight-hour flights (without needing to juice up once), and during HIIT workouts where they impressively always stay in place.
Earning their moniker, Beats Flex headphones are flexible as well. The earbuds are magnetic, which not only prevents tangling nonsense, but functions to automatically pause what you’re listening in just a simple tap.
Beats Flex headphones come with four different size options of ear tips, a warranty card, a quick start guide and a USB-C to USB-C charging cable. Note: Just in case you don’t have a compatible USB-C
