When you’re comparing Beats to Beats, it’s always a case of great versus awesome. The brand has long been an innovator in the audio industry, and now that they’ve joined forces with Apple, the sound is unstoppable. Each earbud model has its own strengths and weaknesses, though, and it seems as though Beats is trying to reach different demographics by creating varied earbuds for different types of people. If you’re trying to decide between the two, it’s time to figure out what your “earbud personality” is, so to speak.
Beats Studio Buds vs. Powerbeats Pro: Key differences
Although they come from the same manufacturer, the similarities between the Studio Buds and the Powerbeats Pro are few and far between. As all Beats earphones, both sets charge via USB-C cable with no options for wireless charging. They both support some aspects of spatial audio, they have similar controls, and they come in three different colors. Other than that, you can see all the differences laid out pretty clearly.
