Apple’s new Beats headphones use Apple’s proprietary W1 chip, which Apple claims addresses some of the issues with current wireless technology for listening to music, like pairing to your devices. It’s still unclear what wireless technology it uses, whether it’s Bluetooth or something else entirely.
