Apple Reportedly Planning to Launch Three New Colors for Beats Studio Buds

Apple is planning to launch a trio of new color options for the Beats Studio Buds, including gray, blue, and pink, according to leaker Jon Prosser.

A video on Prosser's Front Page Tech YouTube channel claims that Apple is planning to deliver all-new "Moon Gray," "Ocean Blue," and "Sunset Pink" color options for the Beats Studio Buds. Since their launch in June 2021, the Beats Studio Buds have only been available in red, white, and black.

The Beats Studio Buds are very similar to the AirPods Pro, featuring in-ear silicone tips, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), Transparency mode, quick pairing, Hey Siri support, and Spatial Audio, for a price of $149.99. The Beats Studio Buds are $100 cheaper than the ‌AirPods Pro‌, but they lack the H1 chip, dynamic head tracking for Spatial Audio, wireless charging, and a design with stems.

Earlier this year, Apple introduced a firmware update that added new functionality to the earbuds, including instant pairing via iCloud, easier access to battery status, and more control over volume.

Apple often introduces new color options to refresh various products, but this would be the first such refresh to come to the Beats Studio Buds. The three new color options are simply said to be in the works to launch "soon."

If the Beats Studio Buds had the Apple H1 chip, they would have been an instant buy for me at its price point. Its obvious Apple purposely withheld the H1 chip, in order to not cannibalise the Airpods Pro.
What other benefits are there for having the H1 chip?
The latest firmware update added instant iCloud pairing.

I tried them and they were pretty good, but they have no stems and it was difficult taking them out of the case a lot of times. I finally returned them and bought a pair of Anker Life P3 for half the price instead. The Anker sound quality was noticeably superior and easy to maneuver because of the stems. It's not as integrated with Apple OSes but in actual usage the difference does not bother me.

Or is it possible they withheld the H1 since the Beats products tend to be aimed at use with Android products as well, and the benefits from H1 only come when paired with iPhone/iPad? Although looking through what devices have the H1, the Beats Fit Pro (around $200) has it, so maybe it's both target audience and price point? I dunno.

I have had these since launch day, have used them with foam tips, and use them for exercise everyday. They have been great.

I think this is why we will never see AirPods in different colors.

Basically pairing is instant, lower latency, higher bandwidth, incredible signal strength, efficient battery management and overall better sound quality in tandem with the AAC codec. The audio quality is better than wired ear pods that's for sure.
