Nearly three years after their highly successful launch, the noise canceling AirPods Pro, of course, have plenty of first-class rivals for the title of best true wireless earbuds money can buy, ranging from Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 and Buds Pro to… Apple’s own AirPods Pro and Beats Studio Buds.
Yes, the Studio Buds (and the more expensive Fit Pro) are manufactured by the same Cupertino-based tech giant and sold through the same Apple Stores as the market-leading AirPods family, which somewhat curiously does not generate comparable demand despite lower prices.
For $149.99 (or less), the The Studio Buds, released in 2021, are nevertheless “the fastest-selling Beats product to date, worldwide”, which is certainly no small feat. In addition to the very latest active noise canceling technology, one can safely assume that native Android compatibility and a wider range of paint jobs than just white contributed to this success story, which continues to this day.
Coincidentally, both the Android functionality and color palette of these popular bad guys were expanded last month and one of the hot new shades is already available at a special price.
Sold exclusively by Apple itself and Best Buy, the Ocean Blue-coated Beats Studio Buds are currently discounted from the aforementioned $149.99 list price to an even more reasonable $119.99 at the latter retailer.
While it’s certainly not uncommon to see the “old” black, white, and red models discounted by the same $30, that’s actually not the case right now, and the Moon Gray and Sunset Pink flavors are only available from Amazon and Amazon respectively. Target (in addition to Apple) are also sold for $150 a pair.
In short, you’re looking at a truly unbeatable deal at the time of writing (probably no more than 24 hours), and it almost goes without saying that it’s virtually impossible to find such standout true wireless earbuds anywhere else at a comparable price and at an equally impressive price. list of features including everything from premium sound to 8 hours of battery life, IPX4 water resistance and class 1 Bluetooth connectivity.
