Summary

The design also creates a bit of separation between the on-device controls and your ear canal, so when you go to pause a track or turn on active noise cancelation, you won’t be jamming the earbuds deeper into the side of your head at the same time.Each earbud gets one physical control button, which can be used to play, pause, and skip tracks; cycle between the Studio Buds' noise-canceling and transparency modes; and answer phone calls. This limitation is somewhat understandable given how little space the Studio Buds have, but it’s still unfortunate: having to pull out your phone to turn things down runs counter to the idea of an “untethered” device.The case also charges over USB-C instead of Apple’s proprietary Lightning port, which means Android users aren’t left out in the cold the way they are with AirPods. Other true wireless earbuds like the Jabra Elite 75t and Jaybird Vista 2 are technically more resistant, but the Studio Buds should still be able to withstand workouts without going haywire.Like other Apple headphones, the Studio Buds are a breeze to use with iOS devices. On Mac and Windows, the earbuds pair like any other Bluetooth device, though they didn’t give me any noticeable trouble getting synced up.From there, the Studio Buds have kept a consistently steady connection in my testing.
