The Beats Studio Buds has finally arrived, it does not have an over-ear hook, unlike Powerbeats Pro. The product has an in-ear design like Airpods Pro minus the stem. The Studio Buds has a physical button on each side of the ear even with the stemless design.
The Studio Buds has an Active Noise Cancelling mode where it filters the noise from the outside. If you long-press the physical buttons, it will toggle between the Active Noise Cancelling Mode and Transparency Mode. Straits Times breaks down the specs included in this latest product by Beats.
The Studio Buds do not include auto device switching, ear detection, or auto-pause/play functions since they use a special chip rather than the W1 or H1 chip. You’ll be able to pair your Apple and Android devices with a single touch, and you’ll be able to activate Siri hands-free simply by saying “Hey Siri.”
ANC and Transparency Modes
Because of an algorithm that “monitors the source file while concurrently correcting and cleaning audio-compromising artifacts at up to 48,000 times a second,” the earbuds should block out unpleasant environmental sound while still ensuring that your music sounds clear in ANC mode.
On the other hand, if you long-press the “b” button and the Transparency mode is accessed, it will allow you to hear the sounds in your background using an external-facing mic that brings the sound of the environment with your music on the play.
According to Beats, dual microphones can also be used during phone calls, it can filter wind sounds and reject external noises for greater clarity on your phone calls.
Other specs of the product are its USB-C charging, sweat and water resistance, Spatial audio support and Apple’s Find My app.
For fitness enthusiasts, Studio Buds are designed to withstand a little sweat and rain while jogging or working out with its IPX4 water resistance, although you can’t take them to your bath.
It can also play Spatial audio for files created with Dolby Atmos, providing you with an enveloping audio experience via cinematic audio playing through your earbuds although this feature is only available so far with Apple Music uses.
According to some audio tests, Studio Buds produces a buoyant sound that highlights both high and low frequencies of audio for an enjoyable result, this is in contrast with previous Beats headphones who only burst with high bass sounds.
When it comes to battery life, on a single charging session, Studio Buds can last up to eight hours of listening time. Its housing case however cannot be charged wirelessly but it can give two extra charges for up to a day of listening time.
When you turn on either the ANC or Transparency mode, the battery life is shortened to five hours or up to 15 hours connected with the carrying case. A quick recharge of 15 minutes can provide at least an hour of listening time.
That’s hardly the best battery life we’ve seen for noise-cancelling earbuds; the new Sony WF-1000XM4, for example, offers eight hours on board and an additional 12 hours from the charging case.
High Quality but Affordable
These sleek-looking buds come in red, white, and black and include silicone ear tips, a lightweight design, and a tilted acoustic nozzle with vents to relieve pressure on the eardrum.
The Studio Buds cost $219, which is much less than the $379 AirPods Pro and $299 AirPods with Wireless Charging Case. It comes in three different variants: white, black, and red.
The Beats Studio Buds is really a good investment for audiophiles out there, if you like to have a high-quality experience in online gaming that you never experienced before, opt to experience it at an online casino.
