The 2021 Beats Studio Buds are $25 off at Amazon – CNET

We found a lot to love about the Beats Studio Buds when they were first released this past summer. The $150 model is Beats’ first true-wireless offering, which also packs active noise cancellation technology. The icing on the cake? They actually sound a bit better than the AirPods Pro, in our opinion. But right now, the Beats Studio Buds are down to $125 at Amazon. That’s $25 off the Apple Store price, and about $55 less than the current sale price of the AirPods Pro. It’s also the lowest price we’ve seen to date.

So why get the Studio Buds over the AirPods Pro? In addition to the sound quality and similar noise-canceling offerings — including a transparency mode — the Studio Buds come in red and black options, so you’re not just stuck with AirPod white. They’re also a better match for Android owners, thanks to solid Android app support and USB-C charging. The biggest thing you’re giving up versus the AirPods is the lack of iCloud pairing, i.e. automatic syncing and switching with all of your Apple devices.
