Beats Studio Buds + Bring Improved Battery Life & Updated ANC

Beats its stepping up its true wireless earbuds game by offering Studio Buds +, a pair that looks the same but gets major upgrades.

The Studio Buds + get some excellent design improvements, including IPX4 water-resistance rating, side-mounted acoustic vents to reduce inner ear pressure and increase comfort over long hours, custom-built transducers that provide a clearer, more balanced, and “cleaner” sound, and improved transducer air flow that improves sound quality and active noise cancellation.



Also upgraded are the microphones (300% larger than the original version), the headphones’ battery (which now lasts 16% longer, up to 3 hours with ANC active), and the charging case’s internal battery (two full extra charges). Even the integrated “b” button has been retooled to decrease the risk of accidentally pressing it when trying to adjust the headphones.
