Beats Studio Buds are the PERFECT Cyber Monday Christmas gift

Now £99, the Beats Studio Buds are an excellent Airpods Pro alternative

If you’re looking for a great deal on true wireless earphones this Cyber Monday, look no further, because Amazon has slashed the Beats Studio Buds to just £99 for Black Friday. Already decent value at their £130 launch price, this a bonafide Cyber Monday bargain if you’re looking to try true wireless earbuds for the first time.

Weighing in at just 5g per bud, the Studio Buds are an altogether more inconspicuous affair than the firm’s Powerbeats Pro. They come in black, white and red and are packed with features that belie their price including active noise cancellation, transparency mode (that makes it easier to stay aware of your surroundings), and IPX4 water resistance.

Despite their diminutive, lightweight design, the buds deliver up to eight hours of playback from single charge and with the pocket charging case, you can get up to 24 hours of use out before needing to charge them via mains.

I’ve yet to publish my review of the Beats Studio Buds, but my early impressions have been very good indeed. As well as being supremely comfortable to the point I sometimes practically forget I’m wearing them, I’ve found them to produce articulate, detailed audio with a nice level of separation between instruments.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Beats Studio Buds when you consider their price, however, is that they come with ANC. The noise cancellation can’t compete with that of much more expensive headphones, but it has a considerable impact both when you want to cut out the rumble of a train or background hum of air-conditioning units at work.

If Apple’s Airpods Pro are a little too steeply priced for you, the Beats Studio Buds represent a well-rounded true wireless headphone package for £85 less. Costing under £100 this Cyber Monday, they’d make an excellent Christmas gift (even if it’s for yourself!)
