Beats Studio Pro and its key features
Apple has now launched the successor of Beats Studio 3 which is Beats Studio Pro. Beats Studio Pro will be available in 4 colours (Black, White, Dark Blue and Brown) and are priced at $350. Beats Studio Pro is expected to compete directly with Apple’s AirPods Max. AirPods Max is super expensive when compared to Beats Studio Pro.
Although Beats Pro Studio has a similar look as its previous headphones, technology has been updated. Apple uses its latest technology in Beats Pro Studio. This includes Personalised Spatial Audio with a built-in motion accelerometer and gyroscope for dynamic head tracking.
It also uses adaptive Active Noise Cancelling with a dedicated processor and upgraded microphones. Playback correction is added to remove any Active Noise Cancelling artefacts before the audio hits your ears. Along with all of this, a new proprietary transducer design with a custom 40mm driver is also introduced.
Beats Pro Studio delivers 80% less distortion as compared to its previous versions. With Beats Pro Studio Apple is transitioning from lightning to USB-C port. USB-C port is more advantageous than lightning as it is the industry standard for charging. Beats headphones are the first set of headphones from Apple that support Lossless audio. They are the first to have a built-in digital-to-analogue converter that enables lossless audio playback up to 24-bit/48 kHz.
Beats Studio Pro has three connectivity options. This includes Bluetooth, a USB-C port and a 3.5mm analogue. These options provide the option to charge and listen simultaneously and are compatible with a broad range of electronic devices. Users can also switch between three different audio profiles. These are a tonally balanced Beats signature profile, an Entertainment profile for movies and games, and a Conversation Profile which removes bass and optimizes it for phone calls.
Beats Pro Studio’s primary competition is Apple AirPods Max, Sony and Bose. They are performance-driven headphones that are primarily focused on five main areas: sound quality, voice performance, comfort/durability, connectivity and ecosystem compatibility. According to reports, Apple will also be introducing a USB-C port in AirPods Max.
