Beats Studio Buds Now Available to Order in Many European Countries

Apple has opened orders for its Beats Studio Buds on the other side of the Atlantic, with the wireless earbuds now available in several European countries including France, Germany, Spain, Italy, and the United Kingdom. Additional retailers like Amazon and John Lewis are also selling them.

Launched in the U.S. and Canda last month, Beats Studio Buds feature a compact round design without any "stems" dropping below the ears. Like the AirPods Pro, the Beats Studio Buds feature active noise cancellation, and when you need to hear the world around you, you can switch to Transparency mode by pressing and holding the Beats logo button on either earbud.

While the Beats Studio Buds support one-touch pairing for both Apple and Android devices via Bluetooth, they don't include Apple's H1 or W1 chip, so they're missing some AirPods features like automatic switching between Apple devices.

Other key features of the Beats Studio Buds include up to five hours of listening time per charge with active noise cancellation turned on, hands-free "Hey Siri" support, IPX4-rated sweat and water resistance, Find My support, and a USB-C charging case.

Beats has been a complete nightmare for me (and my local Apple Store)... based on my experience my "theory" int that the Apple audio team grabbed all the top talent from Beats, leaving the Beats team with the bozos they for some reason couldn't get rid of... my history (note I purchase Beats for working out... weights at gym and 5-20km runs):

PowerBeats 2: Went through 6 pairs in 8 months... after pair 6 the Apple Store (with folks I grew to know with these visits) said "you're just too serious about working out" and exchanged for a pair of Boses (which my wife uses to this day)... "too serious"? So I guess LeBron is doing wimpy workouts?

PowerBeats Pro: 1st pair died after 2 months... current pair has always had charging problems (you put them in, gives feedback it's charging, but when you take them out one side is empty)... also getting both sides to pair take 2-10 times of putting them in and out of the case (every blue moon they pair the first time)... so that adds a few minutes to the pre-run prep... Apple support answer is to do a hard reset (which sometimes sorts it out for a day or two)...

It's odd as my AirPods Pro and AirPods Max have none of these issues (and should be using the same connectivity solution).

Net: If you purchase Beats for working out ensure you keep a spare pair in your bag to ensure you'll have a set that's charged and working... (I keep my Jabras which pair much better than the PB Pros... but don't sound quite as good)...

I just hope Apple comes out with a AirPods Sport.
