We’ve been seeing the newest truly wireless earbuds with the Beats branding for a bit of time now. First as a leak, and then caught out in the wild in the ears of NBA superstar LeBron James. But now they’re officially official.
Today, the Apple-owned Beats unveiled the Beats Studio Buds. The new truly wireless headphones offer a unique design from the other wireless headphones Beats offer. They are available in black, red, and white color schemes — with the charging case color matching.
As far as the design is concerned, there aren’t any ear hooks to help keep them in place. No stem, either (so no going after the AirPods design). These new headphones should be plenty light and comfortable in the ears for daily use. What helps with that, too, is the IPX4 water and sweat resistance.
The new Beats Studio Buds are available to pre-order beginning today for $149.99. They are available directly from Apple, as well as from Best Buy and Amazon. Pre-orders are available in the United States and Canada.
The new Studio Buds also feature Active Noise Cancellation. Beats says that the earbuds will last for up to eight hours on a single charge. The charging case has a USB-C port to give it extra juice. Just keep in mind that the charging case does not support wireless charging.
One of the more interesting elements of the new Studio Buds is the fact that Beats isn’t shying away from Android support with these headphones. They work with Android’s Find My devices feature right out of the box, as well as the mobile OS’s Fast Pair feature. Of course, the headphones also support Apple’s Control Center and the fast set-up process.
Here’s how Beats describes the listening experience:
Beats Studio Buds are engineered to deliver powerful, balanced sound in a compact design, through an entirely customized acoustic platform. The result — immersive sound that pulls the emotion of music from the studio to your ears to keep you going all day long.
The new headphones officially launch on June 24, 2021.
