Apple just confirmed it's ditching the old headphone jack, and also rolling out upgraded wireless headphones called AirPods. Naturally, its Beats brand is getting in the game, announcing headphones with the same W1 chip inside and slick wireless capabilities when used with an iPhone 7. All three models announced today include Class 1 Bluetooth to work across all kinds of media sources and some form of Fast Fuel charging. On the new BeatsX earphones, that means a promised 2 hours playback based on just five minutes of charging via Lightning cable, or eight hours on a full charge. They'll be available this fall in black or white for $150.

Otherwise, there are newly enhanced Solo3 Wireless cups and Powerbeats3 wireless earphones. The Powerbeats3 Wireless promise an improved fit, plus an hour of playback after 5 minutes of charging via microUSB, or 12 hours from a full charge, at a price of $200 when they arrive this fall.

The Beats Solo3 Wireless can apparently run for up to 40 hours on a full charge thanks to the W1 chip, and play for three hours after five minutes of charging via microUSB. Preorders for those start today, at a price of $300. For more info check out the website here, or video previews of the new audio devices below.
