After several leaks and rumors, Apple’s subsidiary, Beats, has launched the new Beats Studio Buds Plus earbuds. These earbuds are the successor to the Beats Studio Buds, which were released almost two years ago. As a generational upgrade, they come with new and improved features. But the main highlight of the Beats Studio Buds Plus is their design. They are available in a cool new transparent version. The trend of transparent earbuds was initiated by Nothing’s first product, the Ear (1). It appears that even an Apple subsidiary has taken some inspiration from it.
Beats Studio Buds Plus Design
The transparent design of the Beats Studio Buds Plus lets you see the internal components. They also come in black and ivory if you prefer a more traditional look. However, the company has not made any changes to the earbud’s design. The earbuds are in-ear in style and come with an extended stem. Each bud weighs 5 grams and has three sizes of silicone ear tips. They are sweat and water-resistant with an IPX4 rating.
The inside of the earbuds has received some big improvements over the 2021 model. The most notable is the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Transparency mode. Beats say the ANC is 1.6 times better than before. This is due to three times larger microphones and a new venting system. Its Transparency mode is also claimed to be two times better than before.

Although owned by Apple, the earbuds are powered by Beats’ own proprietary chip, called the Beats Proprietary Platform. This chip allows the earbuds to work with both Android and iOS devices seamlessly.
For Apple devices, the Beats Studio Buds Plus support one-touch pairing, Hey Siri, Apple Find My support, and device switching via iCloud. On the other hand, they are also compatible with Google Fast Pair, Google Find My Device tracking and audio switching between a wider range of Android devices.
The Studio Buds Plus have a battery life of up to 9 hours of playback. The charging case provides an additional 27 hours of battery life, for a total of 36 hours. Likewise, a quick 5-minute charge will give you an hour of listening time.
Beats Studio Buds Plus Price and Availability
The Studio Buds Plus are available in three colors: transparent, black, and ivory. They are priced at $179 and can be ordered from the Beats by Dre online store.
