The Beats Studio Buds Truly Wireless are lightweight in-ears with active noise cancelling (ANC). Unlike most other headphones from this manufacturer, they have a neutral sound profile instead of one that's bass-heavy, making them versatile enough for lots of audio content. Their comfortable and well-built design also comes in a couple of sleek colorways to match your style. However, they lack an H1 or W1 chip, so you can't seamlessly pair them with your Apple devices. Their ANC system also offers a disappointing overall performance, and they only last around five hours on a single charge, although their case holds roughly two additional charges.

Our Verdict

6.7 Neutral Sound

The Beats Studio Buds are okay for neutral sound. While they have a fairly neutral sound profile, they have an underemphasized bass, so mixes lack thump, rumble, and boom. A dip in the treble range also hurts the clarity of vocals and lead instruments. Unfortunately, they don't have an EQ or presets to help you customize their sound. Due to their in-ear design, their passive soundstage feels small, closed-off, and as if coming from inside your head.

Pros
  • Comfortable, well-built design.
  • Very consistent audio delivery.
Cons
  • No sound customization features.
  • Bad passive soundstage performance.
7.2 Commute/Travel

The Beats Studio Buds are decent for commute and travel. Thanks to their small and lightweight design, you can easily throw them into your pockets or bag when you're on the go. However, their ANC struggles to block out the low rumbles of bus or plane engines. They also provide roughly five hours of continuous playback time, which may not last through long trips without pausing to recharge them again.

Pros
  • Comfortable, well-built design.
  • Don't leak a lot of audio at high volumes.
Cons
  • Disappointing ANC.
  • Bad passive soundstage performance.
8.0 Sports/Fitness

The Beats Studio Buds are great for sports and fitness. They're comfortable, well-built, and are rated IPX4 for water resistance. They're also lightweight and very portable. However, they don't have stability fins, and they may fall out of your ears with more intense head movements.

Pros
  • IPX4 rating.
  • Comfortable, well-built design.
  • Very consistent audio delivery.
Cons
  • Bad passive soundstage performance.
6.7 Office

The Beats Studio Buds are fair for office use. They have a comfortable fit and don't leak much audio at high volumes, so you shouldn't bother people around you if you want to crank up your favorite tunes. While they have ANC, it offers an okay performance cutting down office noise like ambient chatter. Their roughly five-hour continuous battery life may not last you throughout your entire day without pausing to recharge them either.

Pros
  • Comfortable, well-built design.
  • Don't leak a lot of audio at high volumes.
Cons
  • Disappointing ANC.
  • Bad passive soundstage performance.
5.4 Wireless Gaming

The Beats Studio Buds aren't suitable for wireless gaming. You can use them with a Bluetooth-enabled PC, but their latency is likely too high for gaming. They aren't compatible with PS4, PS5, or Xbox consoles.

5.3 Wired Gaming

The Beats Studio Buds are truly wireless headphones, and you can't use them wired.

5.8 Phone Calls

The Beats Studio Buds are sub-par for phone calls. Their integrated mic has a sub-par recording quality, so your voice sounds a bit distorted, thin, and lacking depth. It also struggles to separate speech from ambient noise, so you may be drowned out if you're talking in a moderately loud environment like a busy street. Their ANC also struggles to block out background noise, so you may have trouble hearing your conversation.

Pros
  • Comfortable, well-built design.
Cons
  • Disappointing ANC.
  • Sub-par overall mic performance.

Style

The Beats Studio Buds have a unique, glossy design. The front face of the buds looks like small, flat stems, and they have a small logo printed on the lower side. They come in three color variants to help you find the one that best suits your style: 'Black', 'White', and 'Beats Red'.

The Beats Studio Buds are comfortable earbuds. They don't put too much pressure on your ears, and registering commands using the physical buttons doesn't hurt either. They come with three pairs of differently-sized tips to help you get the best fit.

Additional Controls Voice Assistant

These headphones have mediocre controls. There's a physical button on both earbuds, and they're easy to use since the left and right buttons have the same controls. The buttons have mechanical feedback, but they're not very clicky. There are also beeps to let you know when you've registered a command, but there aren't voice prompts. While they didn't have volume controls when first launched, firmware update 10M359 allows you to enable volume controls through the companion app's reconfiguration settings.

On either bud:

  • Single press: Plays and pauses audio. Also answers and ends calls.
  • Double press: Skips the track forward.
  • Triple press: Skips the track backward.
  • Press and hold: Cycles between ANC, 'Transparency mode', which is intended to let you hear ambient sound while listening to audio, and both modes off. You can change this command to activate voice assistant in the companion app.
  • Single press on the side of the button: Adjusts the volume. However, your headphones need to be updated to the latest firmware and you need to enable this control via the companion app.

The Beats Studio Buds have a decent plastic case. There's one small light near the bottom to indicate that it's charging. However, the lid is a bit flimsy, and it closes very easily.

7.5
Design
Build Quality

The Beats Studio Buds have a good build quality. They feel similarly built to the Beats Fit Pro True Wireless and have a mostly plastic design. Overall, they feel durable enough to survive a couple of accidental drops without taking damage. They're also rated IPX4 for resistance against water splashes, which is handy if you want to wear them during your run or workout. Unfortunately, the silicone ear tips seem like they can rip over time.

7.0
Design
Stability

These in-ears are decently stable. Unlike the Beats Fit Pro True Wireless or Raycon The Fitness Earbuds True Wireless, they lack stability fins to hold them in place when you're on the move. While they shouldn't fall out of your ears if you're listening to audio at your desk, they can move around during workouts or runs. On the upside, they come with three pairs of differently-sized ear tips so you can get a good fit.

The Beats Studio Buds have a somewhat neutral sound profile, which is a little unusual for this manufacturer as they're otherwise known for their bass-heavy, boomy sound. Even though they lack a bit of bass and sound veiled, they're versatile enough for most audio content. Unfortunately, their companion app doesn't have any sound customization features like an EQ to help you tweak their sound. Unlike the Beats Fit Pro True Wireless, they also lack an adaptive EQ that automatically adjusts their sound to your unique ear shape.

The Beats Studio Buds' frequency response consistency is outstanding. Once you achieve a proper fit and air-tight seal using the assortment of tips that come with the headphones, you should achieve consistent audio delivery each time you use them.

The bass accuracy is decent. It's relatively flat, although completely underemphasized across the range. The bassline in songs like Telephone by Lady Gaga and Beyoncé lack warmth and thump, punch, and boom.

The Beats Studio Buds have good mid accuracy. The low to mid-mid is underemphasized, so Lizzo's voice in Juice seems thin and nudged to the back of the mix. The high-mid is very flat, so vocals and lead instruments still have clarity and intensity.

The peaks and dips performance is great. A bump in the low-bass adds thump and rumble to mixes, while a dip between the high-bass and low-mid thins out vocals and lead instruments. Another dip in the mid-mid nudges these sounds to the back of your mix, while a bump in the high-mid to low-treble makes the upper harmonics of vocals and lead instruments harsh. The uneven mid-treble makes sibilants like cymbals alternatingly dull and sharp.

The Beats Studio Buds have outstanding imaging. The group delay falls slightly above the audibility threshold in the bass range, but it shouldn't be noticeable, resulting in a tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. Also, the L/R drivers are well-matched in terms of phase, amplitude, and frequency response, so objects like instruments should be accurately placed in the stereo image. That said, imaging can vary between units and can indicate a manufacturer's quality control and ergonomics.

The Beats Studio Buds' passive soundstage is bad. To achieve a large and spacious soundstage, the outer ear has to activate with sound resonances. However, in-ear headphones completely bypass the outer ear. They produce a soundstage that seems small and as if coming from the inside of your head rather than from speakers placed around you. Since they also have a closed-back design, their passive soundstage seems less spacious than open-back headphones.

The Beats Studio Buds have poor noise isolation. They have an active noise cancelling feature, but it can be hard to hear the difference between ANC on and off. They hardly block out any bass-range sounds like rumbling bus and plane engines and are just okay at reducing office chatter. The ANC does a better job of reducing high-pitched sounds like a humming A/C unit. However, the headphones block out more of this noise if you turn the ANC off.

Note: We noticed that when the ANC is on, you can sometimes hear more white noise when you're in a quiet environment. If you've experienced this issue, let us know in the discussions.

The Beats Studio Buds' leakage performance is outstanding. The audio that escapes is concentrated in the bass range, so it sounds somewhat full, but it's not very loud, so even if you're listening to your music at high volumes, it shouldn't bother people sitting nearby.

The mic's noise handling performance is sub-par, and it performs worse than that of the Beats Fit Pro True Wireless. The mic struggles to separate your voice from moderate ambient noise around you. If you're taking an important call, it's best to do so from a quieter environment so that your voice isn't drowned out.

The Beats Studio Buds have a sub-par battery performance. They have roughly five hours of continuous playback time, which likely won't last throughout your workday unless you pause to recharge them. Battery life can vary depending on your use, though. Luckily, the case holds an extra two charges, making it easy to top up their battery when not in use. You can also use one bud while the other one is charging, and they have a 'Fast Fuel' feature that gives you one hour of playback from five minutes of charging. Thanks to firmware update 10M359 in January 2022, iOS devices now show the battery status of the buds if the carrying case is close by and open.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Beats Studio Buds come in three color variants: 'Black', 'White', and 'Beats Red'. We tested the 'Black' variant, and you can see our model's label here. If you come across another variant, let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Beats Studio Buds are sleek noise cancelling true wireless headphones. These in-ears stand out from other Beats products as they have a more neutral sound profile rather than one that's thumpy and bass-heavy. It makes them a bit more versatile for different kinds of audio genres. Their ANC's performance falls short of the Beats Solo Pro Wireless, and they struggle to cut down the low rumble of bus and plane engines. Another uncommon thing about these headphones is that unlike the Beats Fit Pro True Wireless and Beats Flex Wireless, they also lack an H1 or a W1 chip, so you can't seamlessly pair them with your Apple devices.

See our recommendations for the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds, the best wireless earbuds for running and working out, and the best noise cancelling earbuds and in-ear headphones.
