Beats today announces Beats Studio Pro, the next generation of Beats’ iconic, bestselling over-ear headphone. With all-new and improved interior components, Studio Pro offers next-level audio fidelity, fully-adaptive Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes, Personalized Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking1, UltraPlush leather cushions, up to 40 hours of battery life2, Lossless Audio via USB-C3 and enhanced call performance.
Beats Studio Pro is available to order starting today in four premium colors, Black, Deep Brown, Navy and Sandstone, for $349.99 (US) from apple.com. Starting tomorrow, Studio Pro will be on-shelf at Apple Store locations and authorized resellers in its beautiful new packaging that was designed with the environment in mind.
“Beats cemented its cultural legacy with the release of the original Studio headphone in 2008. With Beats Studio Pro, we’ve refined the design and completely reengineered the headphone to bring consumers our most impressive over-ear offering yet,” said Oliver Schusser, Vice President of Beats and Apple Music. “Studio Pro keeps Beats’ promise of delivering music as the artist intended, continuing our storied heritage as a premium audio brand.”
“When Beats approached me to bring a new design language to the Studio Pro, my goal was to retain the integrity of the design while creating a more sophisticated look and feel that compliments all of the technological advancements,” said Samuel Ross, Beats Principal Design Consultant. “The result is the perfect blend of design culture, creative culture, and engineering coming together.”
Upgraded with seamless engineered leather, the brand new UltraPlush over-ear cushions provide all-day comfort and exceptional durability. And the premium metal sliders offer a wide range of adjustment to create a flexible fit.
Beats’ custom acoustic platform delivers an immersive listening experience. Each custom 40mm driver has been engineered for optimal clarity, with near-zero distortion even at high volume – an improvement of up to 80% compared to its predecessor. An integrated digital processor optimizes the final frequency response for a powerful, yet balanced sound profile crafted to bring out the subtle details of whatever you’re listening to.
At the touch of a button, two dynamic listening modes let you choose whether to keep the world out, or let it in. Fully adaptive Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) continuously monitors the noise around you in real- time, then creates a precisely-tuned filter to cancel it out. Easily switch to Transparency mode to let the sounds of your environment mix seamlessly with your music when you want to stay present and aware.
Spatial Audio with dynamic head tracking lets you get lost in theater-like sound from your favorite content recorded in Dolby Atmos. You can even personalize Spatial Audio just for your ears using your iPhone.
Upgraded voice-targeting microphones in Beats Studio Pro give you high-quality call performance. These powerful microphones actively filter out background noise to enhance the clarity of your voice – up to 27% better than Beats Studio3 Wireless.
