The Executive Headlines
Brand new reports said over the weekend that Apple’s Beats Studio Buds launch was imminent.
The existence of the secret headphones — which Apple sleuths have been excitedly expecting since 2014 — was at last confirmed on Monday when they also became available to order. The sleek new ear gear costs $149.99 on Apple.com and comes in the classic Beats colors of black, white and red. They will begin to ship on June 24 and are also available on pre-order via Amazon and Walmart.
“Studio Buds is our tiniest, most subtle form factor to date, yet keeps Beats’ promise of delivering an immersive sound experience in a beautiful design,” said Beats and Apple Music vice president Oliver Schusser in a press release. “In building a product this small, every minute detail was considered, analyzed and selected to optimize for sound quality, comfort and durability.”
The Buds feature one-touch pairing, have up to eight hours of battery life and two listening modes, active noise canceling mode and Transparency mode.
The new Buds come with ear tips in three size options in the box, and they’ll ship to buyers beginning June 24th. Apple explains on the Beats website that the new earphones are “engineered to deliver powerful, balanced sound in a compact design, through an entirely customized acoustic platform.”
The Beats Studio Buds work with both Apple and Android devices. On Android, they’ll require the Beats app to unlock certain product features.
