On Monday (14) Beats announced Studio Buds headphones, the US brand’s latest model for a completely wireless solution that bets on active noise cancellation. The model has IPX4 protection, can be found through the iPhone Search app and promises up to 24 hours of battery life.
This new gadget can be understood as an intermediate path between Apple’s AirPods Pro and the solution offered by Beats, which belongs to Apple. Beats Studio Buds dives into this scenario and promises to offer a completely wireless headphone, with a compact and colorful case and interesting features even for those with Android in their hands.
“When developing a product as small as this headset, the smallest details were considered, analyzed, and selected to improve sound quality, comfort and durability,” says Oliver Chaucer, Vice President of Beats and Apple Music. “although
Studio Buds is the most compact model ever released, and it delivers this immersive audio experience along with the elegant Beats design.
Unlike the previous Powerbeats Pro, there is no support for increased headphone security at the ear connection points. The gadget sticks on its own, just like AirPods Pro, Galaxy Buds, and many more on the market.
Speaking of the Apple model, the case of this new model is very similar to the AirPods Pro, but without the ability to charge the battery case via induction – at least a USB-C connection replaces the Lightning here. Battery life is eight hours straight when noise canceling is off, or five hours if you prefer to isolate yourself from the world.
By using the headphones case to pause and resume playback, the total listening time for music comes to 24 hours. Weighing five grams each and featuring an 8.2mm driver, they promise to deliver as many frequencies as possible and not overdo any of them to avoid harmonic distortion.
For Apple Music users, Beats Studio Buds supports spatial audio on tracks mixed with Dolby Atmos technology. If you’re using an Android smartphone with location sharing enabled and running at least Marshmallow 6.0, just a touch of the phone’s button enables quick pairing the same way Apple does with iOS.
Beats Studio Buds are brought to iOS or Android
The new Studio Buds headphones are the first from Beats to be found with the help of the Search app on the iPhone, along with Find My Device for those with Android. Moreover, even on the Google mobile operating system, the user can get information about the battery level of the case and every aspect of the accessory.
When and how much?
Beats Studio Buds will be available in the international market from June 24 and cost $149.99. They arrive in Brazil by the end of this year, with a suggested price of R$1,799.
