Apple's New Beats Studio Pro Expected to Launch in July With USB-C, Improved Sound, and More

Apple is planning to release new Beats Studio Pro wireless over-ear headphones on July 19, according to details shared by Myke Hurley on the Apple-related podcast "Connected" last week (via Reddit). Hurley said he obtained the details from an anonymous source who previously shared accurate details about the Beats Studio Buds+ earbuds.

Hurley's source claimed that the Studio Pro will be available in four colors, including Black, Navy, Sandstone, and Deep Brown, and leaked images from @aaronp613 show the headphones will have a very similar design as the Beats Studio3. The headphones are said to feature a USB-C port for charging instead of micro-USB, upgraded microphones, optimized sound profiles, a new carrying case, and support for Android features such as Fast Pair and Find My Device. The headphones will retain a 3.5mm headphone jack, the source added.

Like the Studio Buds+, it is likely that the Studio Pro will also feature improved active noise cancellation and longer battery life.

An early reseller listing indicates that the Studio Pro will retail for around €399 in Europe, which would be the same price as the Studio3. This suggests the headphones will likely cost around $349.95 in the U.S. at launch. The Studio3 are equipped with Apple's W1 chip, but it's unclear which chip the Studio Pro will use.

Evidence of the Studio Pro already emerged in macOS 13.4 code and in an FCC filing in recent weeks, but Beats has yet to officially announce them. The headphones would serve as a long-overdue update to the Studio3, released in 2017. More information should become available closer to the rumored July 19 launch date.

Hells yeah. For those wondering why not get an Airpod Max or Bose or Sony: I want a decent over-the-ear that I can wear to the gym but still connects seamlessly to Apple devices (Mac, phone, TV). And one that isn't over $400. Current Beats Studio are dated but have been doing an okay job. Need audio upgrades and USB-C!

Don't know how much longer I'm willing to wait for the Airpods Max Gen2. Might soon end up just getting the Gen1. I've seen them on Amazon for as low as $449.

Wow, I never thought I’d see one of my Reddit posts featured in a Macrumors article. I’m still dying to know whether the Studio Pros will use an H1/H2 chip or use a custom Beats chip.

A number of people lately have suggested that the Studio Pros would feature a Beats chip. I don’t know if that’s speculation or if it’s based on informed sources.

Based on the betas which confirm that the Studio Pros support audio sharing, I’ve assumed that the Studio Pros would feature an H1 or H2 chip.

Do we know if this will support data over USB? As in when connected via USB-C to a MacBook does it show as a wired audio device?

Wireless is great most of the time but still has a delay and some environments have too much electromagnetic noise for a reliable signal.
