A number of YouTubers are already dropping reviews of the new beats studio buds on the same day of its official announcement.

Apple announced the new Beats Studio Buds earlier today. The wireless earbuds are quite similar to AirPods Pro but come packed in a unique design with some notable differences in terms of charging method and connection features.

With two distinct listening modes, you are in total control of your sound. Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) continuously blocks unwanted outside noise using a finely-tuned filter that dynamically adapts to your surroundings. When you need to hear the world around you, switch to Transparency mode at the press of a button. The external-facing microphones mix the sounds of your surroundings back in with your music for a natural, 'open' listening experience.

A number of YouTubers have gotten their hands on the Beats Studio Buds early and have released their reviews today as well. You can check out all of the reviews below!

Beats Studio Buds - "Real Review"


Targeted at both Apple and Android users, the new noise-canceling $150 Beats Studio Buds are in many ways the stemless Airpods we've always wanted. They offer sound that's slightly better than both the AirPods Pro and Powerbeats Pro, a comfortable fit and very good voice-calling capabilities. However, there's one big problem. CNET's David Carnoy explains why Android users may be pleased but Apple users may not be thrilled with what got left out.

Beats Studio Buds - while Lebron was leaking these before they launched I was busy testing an early pair myself and I have to say... for MUSIC these sound better than AirPods Pro (but they aren't perfect).
