Few headphone brands carry quite the prestige of Beats

Favoured by sports stars and entertainers alike, the brand’s signature ‘B’ can be seen adorning many a celebrity lobe. And right now you can join the Beats clique for a little less, as John Lewis slashes £30 off the Beats Studio Buds, selling them for £99.

That’s a great price for big-brand True Wireless in-ears, particularly when they boast Active Noise Cancelling. ANC allows you to mute unwanted outside hubbub, so you can better hear your favourite tunes or podcasts.

You don’t have to completely block outside noise of course. There’s a Transparency mode which lets ambient audio in, essential when you’re listening to travel announcements.

Being True Wireless, there’s no twine to untangle, and they store in their charging case till needed. Wireless playback time is rated up to 8 hours, with twice that resident in the charging case. In a hurry and juice running low? A 5-minute Fast Fuel re-charge offers up to 1 hour of playback.

These Beats Studio Buds may be small, but you still get on-ear controls to manage calls and control tracks. They also work hands-free with Siri, or via Google Assistant using the Google app.

Technical specs are high. There’s a novel dual-element driver that sits in a two-chamber housing, designed to give superior stereo separation. Call quality is also said to be high, thanks to clever dual-beamforming microphones able to filter out wind and external noise.
