The Beats Studio Buds are rock-solid true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation and support for Apple’s Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos format. Battery life with either ANC or Transparency mode turned on is a little short at only five hours (15 hours with the case), and their noise cancellation isn’t exactly class-leading, but overall these are our favorite Beats earbuds in a very long time, and could pose a real threat to the recently crowned new king of true wireless earbuds, the Sony WF-1000XM4.The Beats Studio Buds are available to preorder now, with an official release date to be confirmed – all Apple has said so far is "this summer" – so anytime between now and the end of August.The Beats Studio Buds will cost $149.99 / £129.99. The result is toe-tapping, head-bobbing music that doesn’t fatigue you, but engages you for long periods at a time.As for the noise-cancelling aspect of the earbuds, it’s a great inclusion, and performs moderately well, although Beats still has some work to do to catch up with the likes of Sony and Bose, each of which has years of experience tinkering with the design, processor and noise cancellation algorithm, to make its Buds keep the maximum amount of noise out of your ears.To that end, it feels like the Studio Buds will be a great office companion – keeping the dull roar of office conversation to a minimum, but likely struggling to be heard over the jet engine on an airplane or the ear-shaking rattles of a subway car. Their fun, lively sound quality and support for Spatial Audio has made them our go-to earbuds for listening to Apple Music for the last week and a half, and they seem to hold up pretty well against the class-leading Sony WF-1000XM4.The cross-platform support for both Android and iOS is surprisingly wonderful, and we appreciate the inclusion of active noise cancellation – even if Beats still has some work to do in this area.
