In a recent discovery by 9to5Mac, unreleased images of the upcoming “Beats Studio Buds+” headphones were found in an iOS 16.4 beta update. These new earbuds are set to be the second-generation follow-up to the first-generation Beats Studio Buds that were released in June of 2021. The earbuds were also certified by IMDA recently.
Now an Amazon listing of Beats Studio Buds+ has been spotted which reveals more details about its features, including a new transparent colorway, improved battery life, and ANC.
The Beats Studio Buds+ boasts an impressive battery life of up to 36 hours with the included USB-C charging case, which is an upgrade from the 32 hours of the previous-generation model. Additionally, the new earbuds feature a new audio design with 3x larger microphones and new venting to improve ear pressure. Beats claims that the new Studio Buds+ offers 1.6x more active noise cancellation power than their predecessors, along with up to 2x improved transparency mode.
In terms of features, the Beats Studio Buds+ offers automatic device switching, Hey Siri, one-touch pairing, and Find My support for both android and iPhone users.
The earbuds also support spatial audio for immersive music, delivering a surround sound experience that you can take anywhere. Beats' custom acoustic platform provides rich, immersive sound for music or calls, while each bud is equipped with a custom two-layer transducer that flexes to deliver cleaner bass and ultra-low distortion.
Moreover, the Beats Studio Buds+ comes with four different eartip options in the box, including XS, S, M, and L, to fit a wider range of ear sizes and create a solid acoustic seal for the best listening experience. Additionally, with the 3x larger microphones, powerful ANC, and a voice-targeting algorithm, the earbuds filter background noise precisely, delivering crisp, clear call performance.
What's more, the new Beats Studio Buds+ will come in three colors: Transparent, Black, and Ivory, giving users a fresh new look and differentiating them from the existing Beats Studio Buds. The Transparent colorway is particularly exciting, reminiscent of the Nothing Ear 2s with its nearly transparent design, providing users with a glimpse of the technology inside.
According to the Amazon listing, the Beats Studio Buds+ will start shipping on May 18, 2023, and will be priced at $169.95. This new release from Beats offers improvements in battery life, ANC, and overall sound quality, making it a worthy competitor in the market for those who prefer a more sporty alternative to AirPods or use Android phones.
