Although the leaks somewhat ruined their launch, Beats’ Studio Buds it amazed us with its pleasing new design, balanced sound and flawless pairing with Android and iOS devices. And according to them, the price was $ 150. But now the buds are on sale for the first time since they appeared in June, so you can buy them for just $ 130 from Amazon. All three colors are discounted, so you can choose your favorite and save $ 20.
Beats Studio Buds we gave a grade 84 and we consider them the best pair of Beats buds for most people. They have a smaller, more comfortable design from which some old Beats headphones and their waterproof IPX4 case will keep them even during your sweetest workouts. The buds emit good sound with strong bass, and they also work with Apple’s Spatial Audio feature. You also get noise cancellation that uses customizable gain control for real-time adjustment, thus blocking out annoying sounds from dishwashers, wind and more. In terms of battery life, Studio Buds should get five to eight hours on a single charge, depending on your use of the ANC.
You might think these are Beats headphones that are designed with Apple users in mind, first and foremost. However, Beats has added a number of new features that make these buds better for Android users as well. They still have the H1 chip inside, so you’ll quickly pair up and switch from your Apple device. But Android users now also have a quick pairing feature that allows Android devices to instantly recognize buds during initial setup. Studio Buds work with Android’s Find My Device feature, so you can use them to display the last known location of your buds.
Beats Studio Buds has a lot to offer, especially at this $ 130 retail price. However, they lack several key features: wireless charging, built-in volume controls, and sound adjustments. We were also not impressed with the quality of their call. But if you’re willing to sacrifice yourself in those areas, Studio Buds remain a solid option for both Android and iOS users who want a reliable, comfortable pair of wireless headphones that won’t break the bank.
