There it is, the surprise. Amazon has done it again and revealed various details about the Beats Studio Buds Plus a little early.
All the details of the Apple subsidiary’s upcoming headphones were briefly glimpsed on a product page. The site was taken down fairly quickly, but the internet never forgets.
That’s in the upcoming Beats Studio Buds Plus
The Plus version is said to be clearly superior to the conventional Studio Buds in some respects. Stronger active noise suppression, improved ventilation and an improved transparency mode are said to be on board.
With the transparent components, the design is slightly reminiscent of the Nothing Ear 2 headphones. If Beats or Apple copied something from the design of Nothing, that would probably be a compliment for the London-based company.
One or the other may also feel reminded of the transparent Gameboys and Playstations that were in vogue many years ago.
Of course, they don’t deviate too much from the usual Beats design.
The Amazon listing lists a 36-hour battery life, larger microphones that could theoretically improve the quality of phone calls, and four sizes of included ear tips, including an extra small set.
The Studio Buds Plus will also reportedly support spatial audio and will be offered to both iPhone and Android customers.
Unlike the AirPods or the higher-end Beats Fit Pro, the Studio Buds Plus don’t have their own Apple chip, but they do offer a few features like hands-free Siri, Find My integration, and more.
According to Amazon, the Studio Buds Plus will be available on May 18th, priced at $169.95. This makes them $20 more expensive than the Standard Studio Buds released in 2021.
The listing also reveals that the Studio Buds Plus will be available in white or black. It will likely disappear at any time.
We are excited about the new headphones from Beats. Do you think they’ll get close to the Air Pods Pro? Will you try them out when they come out? Of course, they have to be officially announced beforehand. Would you like alternative designs better? Write it to us in the comments!
