    I have AirPods Pro for work, Powerbeats Pro for riding the Harley and just got the studio beats because the AirPods Pro couldn’t make it through a full work day and my power beats could make it every day easily so I wanted to try the new beats studio buds. Just my opinion the studio buds seal better than the air pods pro, the noise cancellation is better than the AirPods Pro but transparency mode is no where near the air pods pro. If I had to choose outta all 4 counting the original airpods which honestly are just on such a lower level than the others mentioned I would pay the money and get the AirPods Pro. The studio beats are a close second but you can just tell the quality is no where near the air pods pro they just look cheep made, case and all but preform really well. But the AirPods Pro look very nice and can tell a lot more goes into manufacturing them. Not to mention they have the H1 chip and wireless charge just spend the extra few bucks and get the best.


    I don’t care for wireless charging at all, I gotta say im very satisfied with my studio buds. They’re great when i’m at the gym and they stay in place extremely well 👍

    The worst thing that Beats made is seling the company to Apple. Now every Beats products might good but it will never as good as Apple's earphones and stuffs. Apple made them cheap quality so their own pods and headphones can sell better. Beats deserves to have a betterpremium quality product.

      @prazuprazu And I used Apple earbuds, they sound like sh-t, Audio is for sound, I don't need nor want earbuds to take or make calls, I use a phone for that, so computational is for lazy people who are too stupid to pull a phone out of their pockets to take a call, or look up something on google, thats the problem this day and age, everyone is walking around talking in the air like morons, and yes, they look like morons.

    • Ross Hotard
      Ross Hotard

      @prazuprazu You are sooooo full of crap, I have Beats, I have Sony's, and I have Bose Audio all over my home, ear buds, and noise canceling headphones, so I've experienced all, confirming you don't know crap about true Audio sound buddy, so until you've experienced the best, don't call me out.

    • prazuprazu

      @Ross Hotard Hi traditionalism and love for nearly vintage brands don’t go well with electronics and computing. Bose is zero in Computational audio. Before commenting, I checked out the no. of patents Apple has in computational audio technology. Bose soundsport free I used and regretted. These brands are good at making speakers and to some extent headphones. Spatial audio of Apple is inimitable says all CNhavers. It’s technology vs classic brands.

    i listen to twitch streams audio only with my airpods pro’s (i work for parks) from around 7:00 am to 11:30 am (lunch) with one earbud mostly and that earbud will be at around 20% by the time i eat so they have some pretty great battery life for someone who works 10 hours 4 days a week! i just ordered the airpods max’s so i’m excited to compare them!!!!!

  • 3LI PALM3R

    Man with these reviews I respect the full comparison, but at the end of the day I only care about the fit and the sound. The size of the case means nothing to me.

  • Darkness3600

    Mfs always talking about battery life when most people that buy ear buds only use them I. The car or at the gym, or when your in a crowd l, even then I would have them out cause I feel weird not being able to hear everything, basically what I’m saying is people use earbuds for short periods of time with few chances of using them cause nobody is gonna use them all damn day, definitely not at home

    I returned my buds and exchanged for Airpod Pro. That M1 chip has alot of quality of life features and just work better for iPhone. Beats are great for android but there are MANY better options for equal or less value

  • Ckreyetif

    the single press to play feature on the beats means when you take one out to listen to someone and you put it back it, itll play soon as you do ^^

  • Ckreyetif

    just got them and own pros. put the beats on 'late night' eq to make em somethin to talk about (iphone). the circles tips are more comfortable then the pros tips ovals. and the transparency and isolation modes only work with the beat buttons and not the iphone volume interface. the color is banging. the lid seal isnt as clean. the bass is much bigger. but w a good eq thats more potential to refine it into something masterful.

  • Richard

    They are good for a budget earbuds but I will never trade my AirPods Pro for that. I like the call quality on my AirPods Pro much better wireless charging and all the extras you get with it. I don’t like that cheap feel of the case of the beats buds however if I was looking for a budget friendly pair of buds with decent sound I will get them but I’m too spoiled with AirPods Pro I don’t like the feel of the beats case. I do like my beats solo pro tho

  • Vlad G02

    Tip about the normal airpods: you can also tap on the stem for touch controls

  • Eli

    In my opinion, the Beats Studio Buds are no competition to the AirPods Pro. I don’t think the Beats Studio Buds are worth $150, if anything they should be sold for around $100. After I returned the Beats Studio Buds I went to buy the AirPods Pro since I needed an upgrade from my 3 year old AirPods. The noise cancellation is way better in the AirPods Pro, as well as sound. I’ve had no issues with them at all, plus I use them to workout and they don’t fall out or anything. If you are on a budget get the Beats Studio Buds, but don’t expect really good quality. I highly recommend getting the AirPods Pro at this time since Target is selling them for $200, the $50 difference is worth it.

    If you love beat's design, go for beat studio buds. Other than that, there's no better than Airpods pro. Airpods pro gets price off very often so those two models don't have much of a price difference.

    These Beats Studio Buds do spatial audio. You mention they do nit at the end of the video. Great review. They do not have accelerometers though like the AirPod Pros but I don’t see that as a big deal. We will see these probably in the Apple AirPod Pros 2 que n a similar form factor with accelerometers for exercise tracking, next year.


    Do one with Marshall mode II

    This guy doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He said that you would save money getting AirPods, but the beats are the cheapest option. He said that the battery life would be five hours with ANC, but that is even better than the AirPods which have five hours without ANC. It also has better battery life than the AirPods Pro. I also think that any headphone fits better than AirPods. You wouldn’t believe how annoying it was when they fell out every other day.

  • chiptaker1099

    Been using the new Beats for a week now and absolutely love them, the sound is awesome, wear one in my ear all day at work and never have they felt like they’re going to fall out of my ears, even while working out, very comfortable in my ears, they may not have all the features as the AirPod Pro’s, but for music especially rock I think they’re great!!

    • chiptaker1099

      With noise cancellation & transparency off I’m getting 7 1/2 hours on a charge, 5 if one of them is on, I usually keep off but sometimes it gets turned on by mistake by tapping on the earbud,l or maybe while setting in your ear by holding to long.

    Sorry but the Beats were not great. The fit and finish was VERY cheap, for the case and ear buds. The Pros are definitely better and the features outweigh the cost IMO. ANC was not great on these buds. The stem was better to control. I think the sound is overall more rich in the Pros, too! This is highlighted if you pick up the Pros on sale.

    I got Airpods Pro for 180 bucks (CHF). So only 30 bucks more compared to the new Beats is a very good deal I think. And the Beats are not even available yet.
