Amazon prematurely released a sale listing for the suspected Beats Studio Buds Plus on Tuesday night. The page provides every minute detail about the buds, including changes like enhanced air venting, a more transparent mode, and active noise cancellation that is stronger than the original Studio Buds.According to Amazon, the Studio Buds Plus will cost $169.95 when they go on sale on May 18. When compared to the Studio Buds that were released in 2021, that is a $20 premium. The casing and buds have very similar designs to the first set of headphones. The Studio Buds were at least incredibly comfortable, even if I didn't enjoy their sound quality or think the ANC was particularly effective.
The Amazon ad mentions larger microphones, four sizes of included ear tips, including an extra small set, 36 hours of overall battery life, and larger microphones (which potentially might increase voice call quality).
Spatial audio will be supported by Studio Buds Plus. Similar to the first pair, though, these are being advertised to both iPhone and Android users. These lack the Apple-branded chip found in the AirPods and the more expensive Beats Fit Pro. However, they do share several capabilities, including hands-free Siri, Find My, and others.
