Thanks to many handset OEMs ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack, over the years we’ve seen a sharp rise in the popularity of wireless headphones, in particular true wireless earbuds that have done away with the need for connecting cables completely.
That being said, the folks at Beats have recently unveiled their latest product that comes in the form of the Beats Studio Buds +. This is essentially a slightly upgraded version of the Beats Studio Buds that comes with some new and improved features while also boasting a transparent design.
Some of the improvements made to the Studio Buds + over its predecessor include new acoustic vents, which the company claims will help with overall comfort. There will also be a new “proprietary two-layer transducer” that will help reduce distortion. There is also support for spatial audio, and an improved version of active noise-cancelation that is said to be 1.6 times better than the previous model.
Beats has also included improved microphones combined with an “intelligent voice-targeting algorithm” that will help deliver better call quality while filtering out unwanted background noise.
What’s also interesting about these earbuds is that it comes with support for Google Fast Pair and Audio Switch, which means that Android users will be able to enjoy the same quick pairing method that Apple users have enjoyed all these years from the brand. As for battery life, the Beats Studio Buds + will up to 9 hours on a single charge, and up to 36 hours with its included charging/carrying case.
The Beats Studio Buds + is priced at $169.99 and will be available for purchase directly from Apple. Alternatively you can check out the regular Beats Studio Buds below if you want to save a bit of money.
