Released in June, the Beats Studio Buds are the only Apple earbuds with a stemless design. They feature ANC and Transparency modes, plus USB-C charging and some Android-friendly features. And they’re on sale for the very first time—down from $150 to $130.
Feature-wise, the Beats Studio Buds straddle the line between AirPods and AirPods Pro. They feature great sound quality, a comfortable build, and a total 24-hour battery life with the charging case. But as you might expect, the Studio Buds lack wireless charging, and the headphones’ ANC mode is a bit underpowered compared to AirPods Pro.
But those minor shortcomings are very easy to overlook at $130. Again, the Beats Studio Buds aren’t an AirPods Pro killer, they’re Apple’s mid-tier wireless earbud offering. And they feature the same quick-connect software as AidPod-branded products, so you can quickly link the earbuds to your iPhone, iPad, or Mac.
Now’s your chance to grab the Beats Studio Buds for $130 at Amazon. It’s not a massive discount, but it’s the best deal we’ve seen yet, and a similar discount may not come along until this holiday season.
