(SPONSORED) It’s been well over a year since we last saw a pair of true wireless earbuds from Beats, but the company has been hard at work to create a new take on the form factor that’s sure to delight even the most discerning of listeners: enter the Beats Studio Buds.
Beats has always been known for its attention to rich, bass-driven sounds, but for the Studio Buds, greater care has been afforded to bring every layer of a song into the fold to create a portable sound stage that needs to be heard to be believed.
It doesn’t matter if your favourite tracks mash together a drum machine and a synthesizer or a keyboard with vocals, each aspect comes through clearly courtesy of the 8.2mm, dual-element diaphragm driver found in each earbud.

When it comes to listening to music on the go, sound quality is just one half of the equation however, which is why the Beats Studio Buds also pack blissful Active Noise Cancellation in their design. Nothing makes a daily commute worse quite like missing your favourite bits of a song due to a loud train journey, but the Studio Buds are able to dispel any unwanted sound in real time, whilst also scanning songs up to 48,000 times a second to ensure that playback isn’t compromised by the ANC.
Of course, there are times when paying close attention to your surroundings is essential, whether it’s in simply crossing to the other side of the street or listening out for an announcement – in either scenario, the Studio Buds’ Transparency Mode has you covered. With Transparency Mode activated, the Studio Buds allow the sound of the outside world to pass through, all without stopping the track you’re listening to. Gone are the days of needing to take out your earbuds every time you needed to hear something.
In fact, if you have an iPhone paired with your Beats Studio Buds, you won’t even have to take your phone out thanks to Siri support. All you have to do is say ‘Hey, Siri’ when you’re out and about, and you’ll have immediate access to all of the tasks that Siri can perform, such as setting a reminder or offering up an answer to any question that might pop into your head.
Fear not, Android users can still get in on the action with simple one-touch pairing available for both Apple and Android smartphones – getting you up and running in no time. Speaking of which, the Beats Studio Buds have been designed with fitness fanatics in mind, with an official IPX4 rating ensuring that the Studio Buds can withstand sweat and splashes of water without missing a beat.
If you need to make or take a call then the Beats Studio Buds have your back. The dual-beam forming microphones on both earbuds isolate your voice and dispel any ambient noise to ensure that the person you’re speaking to gets a crystal clear recreation of what’s being said. Class 1 Bluetooth performance also comes into play, giving the Studio Buds a stronger and more reliable connection than most wireless earbuds on the market, keeping dropouts to an absolute minimum.
In spite of their heavy feature set and lightweight frame, the Beats Studio Buds can still keep up with your day, thanks to a battery life of up to eight hours on the Buds themselves, increasing up to 24 hours if you include the extended battery life offered by the accompanying charging case.
The Beats Studio Buds are available to buy right now from Currys PC World, all for the low price of just £129.99. For a premium pair of true wireless earbuds that beat the competition on price, it can only be the Beats Studio Buds.
