What does the Apple One-Year Limited Warranty cover?
To quote Apple directly:
"Your Apple-branded or Beats-branded hardware product ("Product") is warranted against defects in materials and workmanship for a period of ONE (1) YEAR from the date of original retail purchase ("Warranty Period") when used in accordance with Apple`s user manuals."
In simple English, this means Apple will repair or replace your BeatsX headphones if the problem is a defect or issue with the headphones that was caused by the manufacturing process. This means if you cause the BeatsX to stop functioning or do physical damage to it, you won't be covered under the Apple One-Year Limited Warranty.
It's also important to note what the Apple One-Year Limited Warranty says about the battery of the BeatsX headphones:
"This warranty excludes normal depletion of consumable parts such as batteries unless failure has occurred due to a defect in materials or workmanship."
Now, the rechargeable battery in the BeatsX shouldn't fail in the first year — if they do, there's clearly something wrong — but this clause could prevent you from seeking a replaceable just to get a shiny new battery before your coverage is over.
The good news is within one year you shouldn't experience any noticeable drop in battery performance, so none of this should matter in the grand scheme of things.
No extra warranty provided by Apple
If you're used to buying other Apple products, such as iPhones, iPads, and MacBooks, you may be familiar with AppleCare+, which is an extended warranty. However, the BeatsX headphones aren't eligible for the AppleCare+ program.
Some credit card companies provide additional warranty protection when you make your purchase using their card. For example, The Platinum Card® from American Express will extend your warranty by a whole year, if the entire purchase is made on the credit card and so will the Capital One Venture Rewards Credit Card.
Each credit card company is different and has different warranty benefits for some states. Be sure you read and understand these benefits before you decide to rely on them entirely.
Noise cancellation and a customized fit
Apple's cheapest wireless W1 headphones are the best option for users who need a more customized fit for their everyday earbuds and don't mind a wired connection. Eight hours of battery life should be more than enough for most daily use, and just five minutes of charge will give you an additional two hours of play.
