.......$149.99....first Beats earbuds to compete with AirPods (functionally).......


Beats Studio Buds Debuting Today With Active Noise Cancellation, Stemless Design, and More for $150

.....We've seen a lot of teasers about the Beats Studio Buds over the past month since they first showed up in Apple's beta software updates, and today they're finally official. The Beats Studio Buds are available to order today in red, white, and black ahead of a June 24 ship date, and they're priced at $149.99.

The Studio Buds are the first Beats-branded earbuds to truly compete with AirPods thanks to their wire-free design that fits comfortably in the ear without the over-ear hook seen on Powerbeats Pro.

In many respects, the Studio Buds are competitive with AirPods Pro at a lower price point, with a diminutive design that's slightly lighter than the AirPods Pro while still offering features like Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Transparency modes.


I've been using a pair of Studio Buds in "Beats Red" for the past week and a half, and I've come away impressed with their performance, especially given their price point. I'm a heavy AirPods Pro user on a day-to-day basis, and the Studio Buds stack up well against them in most respects........




Beat(s)......ing.........off......?!

These look great if the build quality is better than beats in the past.

Since they're available in black and red as well as white, maybe we can get away from the There's Something About Mary "hair gel" look that regular AirPods impart.

I bet your interpretations of Rorschach patterns are a hoot.

(LOL)

I like the design, as with AirPods and AirPods Pro, I don't like the disposable aspect vs cost of wireless earbuds.

However, if memory foam tips become available I might be tempted.

I'll have to read reviews.

Bass-heavy is not a metric I appreciate and for casual listening, I find AirPods to be really decent.

I do like the way they fit between the AirPods and AirPods Pro. But will they stay in while running. I like my Bose with the silicone ear holders.

I vote no, and if they do, that would be the exception, not the rule.

At least in my experience, not with running but walking, because ears sweat.

I'd give memory foam a shot, if/when available.

The Powerbeats Pro fit me better than the AirPods Pro, because I shape the hooks, but I still can't get one quite right.

Memory foam tips might fix that, but they're a little to pricey for me to take a chance.

I like the over-ear hook on my PBsP.

Makes them great for running.

Air Pods Pro don't stay in.

Air Pods Amateur need the silicone covers to be secure.
