Released last summer, Beats Studio Buds have just received a new special edition, this time in partnership with Amsterdam clothing brand Daily Paper. In this version, the Buds have a graffiti-like case with white earbuds and a Daily Paper sign in red.
“Music is one of the most important pillars of our brand because it brings our community together,” said Abderrahmane Trabsini, co-founder and design director of Daily Paper. “Working with Beats has always been on our wish list of collaborations. It’s also an extension of the current SS22 collection which is inspired by hip-hop culture.
Aside from the new housing and stylized buds, the Beats Studio Buds have the same features and sound quality as previous iterations. The Beats Studio Buds feature no rear and are dial-shaped, with a ridge on the outside that features the Beats logo.
These headphones feature active noise cancellation as well as transparency mode. With six microphones, the Beats Studio Buds can isolate outside sound or sound like you’re not wearing headphones at all.
Different from Powerbeats Pro or other Beats headphones, this one does not have Apple’s H1 or W1 chip. This means that while you can easily pair these headphones with your iPhone and iPad, you need to pair them with each device at once. Features like in-ear detection do not exist in these headphones.
Here’s what Beats says about the sound quality of the Beats Studio Buds:
Beats Studio Buds were designed and engineered to prioritize high-quality audio playback and overall comfort, whether you’re listening to music, streaming a movie, or chatting with a friend. The ergonomically angled acoustic nozzle features a laser-cut micro-vent to provide pressure relief to the eardrum.
Its powerful, balanced sound is driven by the proprietary 8.2mm dual-element diaphragm driver, which features a rigid center piston with a flexible outer surround. Combined with a two-chamber acoustic design, the Studio Buds achieve exceptional stereo separation and low harmonic distortion across the entire frequency curve so you hear every note.
This special edition will go on sale May 26 online and at Daily paper stores costs $149.95 / £129.95.
