Apple iPhone 12 lineup won’t include power adapters and EarPods wired earbuds, Apple offers an alternative for EarPods – the Beats Flex.
Beats Flex are Apple’ first Bluetooth earbuds with a USB-C connector, they are fairly cheap, entry-level earbuds for both Android and iOS users.
Beats Flex sound better than BeatsX – Beats’s aging neckband Bluetooth headphones, AirPods true wireless and another competitor the – Bullets Wireless Z that we’re going to compare.
Head to head comparison between Oneplus Bullets Wireless Z Vs. Beats Flex – two neckband Bluetooth earbuds which one is better?
We compare those two pairs: price, specs, sound quality and call quality performance.
The new released Beats Flex is priced for $49, Bullets Wireless Z is a bit more expensive.
Winner: Beats Flex
Fit and Comfort
Even though, the Wireless Z earbuds housings are a bit larger they are still very comfortable to wear and they even sit more securely in the ear than Beats Flex earbuds. I prefer the Wireless Z since Beats Flex sometimes slip out.
Beats Flex features flat cable more sporty, flashing design.
Bullets Wireless Z’s neckband appears to be more sturdy and thicker and it sits on the neck more even than Beats Flex
Music pauses when earbuds clip together
The Beats Flex gets an nifty feature that when earbuds clip together it automatically pauses your music, and if you take them back in the ear they will resume the music. This feature relies on the magnetic mechanism rather than built-in sensor for in ear detection. The Bullets Wireless Z’s pause/resume feature when earbuds magnetically snap together/release only work with OnePlus 5/5T – to active go to Settings > Sound & vibration > Earphone mode.
Beats Flex sounds definitely better overall, bass performance is stronger.
Winner: Beats Flex
Both have clear voice call, with reasonable noise reduction capacity Beats Flex supported by Apple W1 noise reduction tech while the Wireless Z supported by Qualcomm QCC3024’s cVc Tech.
Which One Should You Buy?
In terms of features, Wireless Z have better quick charge and multipoint features. It also have solid call performance and while their sound isn’t on par with Beats Flex, their neckband construction is more solid and durable, so if you need a pair for the sound pick Beats Flex otherwise Wireless Z is also great for features packed in and appealing design.
