A great alternative to AirPod Pros
I used to have Airpods Gen 2 and currently had AirPod Pros. My Pros started to crackle and since they were out of warranty Apple was charging me to replace the faulty one. Anyways, venturing to look for headphones that were wireless, had active noise cancellation, and played well with the Apple ecosystem was kind of slim pickings. Thankfully these Beats Studio Buds fit my lifestyle perfectly.
What works? They’re nicely designed albeit kind of odd looking. But once they’re in the ear they’re really comfortable. Sound quality isn’t as good as my Pros but they’re still not shabby - they’re loud and bass-y. The “b” as a button control is pretty dope and it has become second nature after having these for a few days. Then the connectivity, brilliant. They connect just the same as AirPods do - open them up near an Apple device and it’ll connect. Oh, and it’s in the “Find My” app. Active noise cancellation works quite well too, though I haven’t really tried out transparency mode since I don’t like it in general. Finally, they do stay in the ear quite well. I’ve only gone on walks with these but I’m sure they’ll fit quite snug while I’m on a run.
What doesn’t work? At this price point, it kind of makes sense, but it’s lacking the feature where when you take it out of your ear it pauses. It’s a small gripe, and something I do miss, but it’s not a dealbreaker. Then the case… it’s poorly made and plastic feeling. It’s also really slippery. If one day I drop these and they go down the sewers, well, I wouldn’t be all that surprised. It’s too bad that there’s no wireless charging either. But I guess it’s fine at this price point.
All in all, this will hold me over quite well I imagine while I wait for the AirPod Pros 2. I would recommend these in a heartbeat.
As someone who has owned both the AirPods Pro and these particular Beats, I can say the Beats are the closest you can get for almost half the cost (when on sale). My AirPods died on me and I was consider getting another pair. But I saw these on sale and thought I should give them a shot.
PROS: Great Battery Life, Small and stylish, Haptic Controls, Punchy EQ, Apple exclusive features, USB-C charging.
CONS: Case is bulky, Hinge on the case seems weak, connects to my phone while in the case sometimes, bass can be much for softer genres of music, Transparency mode is very weak.
Obviously something like Sony or Anker would be competitive enough but they lack one thing which is Apple compatibility. Being able to set specific settings, such as the Find My feature and pair with ease with no delay are important to me.
Do they sound better than the AirPods Pro? The short answer is no. They get close to the sound signature but are punchier on the lows. Bass is heavy which is great for hip hop and dance music but for rock or acoustic it is grating sometimes and drowns out the vocals. Setting the EQ to flat is a good suggestion BUT remember that now it become average for hip hop. I do love the sound overall, just wish they weren’t so punchy.
The battery life is better on the Beats with ANC on and off then the AirPods Pro. They use USB C which is WAY BETTER than using lightning. Speaking of ANC, these are shockingly close in terms of the AirPods. The AirPods Pro so a better job at both ANC and Transparency modes, but they’re definitely better than most mid range competitors.
Overall, I’m gonna have to say this is the first pair of Beats I approve anyone to buy. They’re great replacements and worth saving the extra bucks.
The Dr. Dre - Beats Studio Buds Totally Wireless Noise Cancelling Earphones are absolutely AMAZING. The sound quality compares to being in a sound studio. The noise cancelling makes wearing these while running or working out, seem like you are in a world by yourself. And the final fabulous quality: I finally have a pair of earphones that actually stay in my ears. Once you put them in the correct ears (the buds indicate L and R for left and right), and turn the b lever, it is like they magically lock into your ears. The case is a WOW factor as well. Each bud fits perfectly in its own section. The buds stay put as they are held in the case via magnet. I am in love. The BEST Best Buy purchase for earphones.
These are a step down from the Powerbeats Pro. The music quality is great but the phone compatibility features are lacking. There is no volume control feature on the buds themselves. There are a lot of phone features that comes with the Pros that are not here with the studio buds. You have to have your phone within arms reach. These are strictly for the music. I need to have the best of both worlds; great music and phone features. I jumped on them because they were new but back to the Pros for me.
The new beats studio has that beats sound giving you a reminiscing sound however what I don’t like about is that one piece specifically L side keeps falling out. I would recommend still but would warn those to see if it fits and stick before purchasing. I still have my but I try to avoid using the L side only because I like them
I would recommend this to a friend

Beats Studio Buds
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
I like the product The sounds sound so great the only thing I don't like it when you on YouTube music you keep popping up telling you your left and right percentage it's annoying constantly... How much percentage battery life you have ears buds... Other than that it's a great beats buds...
A:AnswerThat’s hard to say, since Ive never had issues with AirPods or AirPods Pro falling out of my ear, but I can say that these are very comfortable. They come with three different sizes of rubber tips so you can find a fit that works for you. But I think the design of these are great and they shouldn’t fall out.
