Apple takes a page out of Nothing’s book with the new transparent Beats Studio Buds+

Apple sound quality for un-Appple prices

Transparency is the new norm and while it is Nothing new (forgive the pun), Apple has decided to go transparent with its latest earbuds, the Beats Studio Buds+. That said, like all things Apple, it's causing quite a stir. The new earbuds come with a host of upgrades, including the option for a transparent design that allows you to see the inner workings of the earbuds.

The Beats Studio Buds Plus are quite similar to their predecessor, the Beats Studio Buds, taking Appe’s if it ain’t broke don’t fix it approach. That said, the new variant does bring a few hardware updates. These earbuds have three new vents that are specially designed to relieve pressure and improve audio precision. So, not only will you be able to hear your music but you'll be able to go hours listening to your favourite jams without the pressure building up in your ears. Similar to the AirPods Pro.

But that's not all, folks. The battery life of the Beats Studio Buds+ has been extended to 9 hours on a single charge, which means you can now listen to your favourite tunes for an extra hour. You know what we say, an extra hour of music a day keeps the doctor away. And let's not forget about the improved microphones, transparency mode and ANC. With the Studio Buds Plus, you can now hear your surroundings and reduce background noise by 1.6 times.

Overall, the Beats Studio Buds+ is a great addition to the Apple family. They're compatible with Android, have touch controls, and come in three variants – Black/Gold, Ivory and Transparent. The buds are priced at a pretty reasonable $169.99 (₹14,000 approx.) so they may be the budget alternative for the AirPods from Apple.
