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.


If you've used ‌AirPods Pro‌ before, Studio Buds will be immediately familiar, with the same one-touch pairing and simple button presses to cycle between standard mode, ANC mode where the noise around you is actively canceled out to provide a more isolated listening environment, and Transparency mode where the sounds around are actively piped through the earphones and mixed in with your audio so you can hear what's going on around you even with the earphones sitting firmly in your ears.


US officials said that while the situation does not currently pose a serious safety threat to workers in the factory or residents of nearby areas, it is unusual for a foreign company to unilaterally reach out to the US government for assistance when its Chinese state-owned partner has not yet acknowledged a problem.


"Framatum" said in a brief statement, Monday, that it "supports the resolution of the performance problem at the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong Province, China."



She added, “According to the available data, the station is operating within safety standards. Our team is also working with relevant experts to assess the situation and suggest solutions to address any potential problem.”


Radiation levels in Hong Kong, 135 km from the station, were normal on Monday, according to the Hong Kong Observatory, which monitors radiation around the city.
