Next month, Beats is set to unveil its first over-ear headphones in five years, the new Beats Studio Pro model. They will receive 40 mm custom drivers that will provide clear sound even at high volumes. An integrated digital processor will also be responsible for playing high-quality sound.
The headphones will offer modes of active noise cancellation, transparency, and surround sound with support for Dolby Atmos and Apple’s Personalized Spatial Audio function. It will be possible to switch between modes using a separate multifunction button.
Beats Studio Pro are equipped with a USB-C port and a 3.5 mm audio jack. The set will include a standard audio cable with a 3.5 mm connector and a USB-C to USB-C cable. When listening via USB-C, three modes will be available: Beats Signature (balanced settings for all music genres), Entertainment (best for gaming and watching movies), and Conversation (for calls and listening to podcasts).
The headphones will not receive a chip from Apple but instead will have a proprietary chip that should improve support for both Apple and Android devices. In particular, there will be support for Google Fast Pair, Audio Switch, Find My Device (Google), One-touch pairing, “Hey Siri”, and Find My (Apple) technologies. The battery life of Beats Studio Pro will be up to 40 hours, or up to 24 hours with active noise cancellation or transparency modes enabled. 10 minutes of charging will add about four hours of listening to music.
Beats Studio Pro will be offered in four colors: black, blue, sand, and brown. It is expected that the cost of the novelty will be $349. The official announcement should take place on July 19.
