Beats Studio Buds+ 'blows Apple out of the water' — grab 'em on mega sale

What are they?

When it comes to headphones and earbuds, everyone knows the name Beats. Amazon has gone full slasher-flick on prices, dropping discounts as much as 43% on different options — including one of Oprah's favorites. Right now, the Studio Buds+ are down to just $130 (from $170).

Also available in black and gold, Cosmic Silver, and Ivory color optoons, the Studio Buds+ boast up to 36 hours of playback time, voice-filtering microphones, and multiple listening modes for a superior audio experience.

Why is this a good deal?

Beats is one of those brands that's worth the high price tag, but that doesn't mean you want to pay it. Although this discount is only around 25%, it's one of the lowest prices on record for these miniature cans.

Why do I need these?

To start with, the sound quality is outstanding — easily on par with AirPods Pros. You'll get nine hours of charge time per bud, with a total of 36 when combined with the case. These earbuds also have one-touch pairing with both Android and iPhone, so you'll get the full set of features regardless of what platform you choose.

And phone calls? Bring it on, wind — the three sets of voice-targeting microphones work to filter out ambient background noise to ensure your voice is clear and coherent even in noisy environments. That's where the Active Noise Cancelling comes in handy, too. If you're working in a coffee shop, you can block out the sound of nearby conversation just by activating the feature.

If comfort is a concern, the Studio Buds+ come with four different sets of silicone ear tips to help you find exactly the right size for your ears. And yes, you can mix and match, just in case your ear hole sizes are different.

What reviewers say

"I love these earbuds! They fit into my ears perfectly and stay put for the most part, unlike most of the other earbuds I've tried that fall out of my ears after almost any activity. The sound quality is excellent, even while using the setting allowing you to hear surroundings, which is my preferred setting. The charge super quickly in the case and the case charges quickly when plugged in. I do wish the battery lasted a little longer, but I still get 4 hours or so of use out of them before they need charging. Highly recommend," one reviewer raved.

Another customer wrote, "These EarPods are the best I have purchased. The sound quality is tremendous and blows Apple's product line out of the water."

"These are well worth the price, everything works well . The only downside is personal, as my ears are very small and while I'm moving and grooving, they do tend to fall out no matter the size I put on the actual bud," another shopper said.

Other Beats deals

With flexible ear tips for better comfort and stability, the Beats Fit Pros deliver great sound and have up to 24 hours of playback time. They also come with an extra listening mode in the Adaptive EQ setting, which is something the Studio Buds+ do not have.

Oprah voted these her favorite headphones of 2023, and that's saying something! They have up to 40 hours of battery life on a single charge and can give you an extra four hours of play time with just a ten-minute top-up. Built-in microphones clearly filter your voice, and you can adjust the sound settings to fine-tune your audio experience.
