Priced at $79.99, the Beats Solo Buds feature up to 18 hours of battery life, a USB-C carrying case, and Find My support on both iOS and Android. However, they lack active noise cancellation, and the carrying case does not have a built-in battery and can only charge the earbuds when a USB-C cable is connected to an external power source.

More details about the earbuds can be found in our initial coverage of the Beats Studio Buds announcement back in late April.

Beats Solo Buds will be available to pre-order on Apple's online store starting Tuesday, June 18, ahead of a Thursday, June 20 launch.

They’re rated for 18 hours of battery life on their own. Honestly I’d trade a charging case for battery life like that, I always seem to have to charge 3/4 of the way through a flight ?

18h battery is pretty good. makes sense to have no battery in the case like that.

charging a battery from a battery is pretty stupid anway, if you can avoid it.

I’ll pick one of these up for my work phone. $79 is a fair price for these.
