Beats Studio Buds pass through NCC with USB-C charging

Ricky, 11 June 2021

Apple-owned Beats is expected to launch a new pair of TWS earbuds. The Beats Studio Buds are a pair of stem-less TWS earbuds that were recently leaked in a recent build of iOS, and famous basketball star LeBron James was also spotted wearing the new buds.

The latest news, as reported by MacRumors shows the same pair of earbuds as they passed through the Taiwanese communications authority. The NCC (National Communications Commission) certified the new buds, and the accompanying photos revealed a USB-C charging cable.

The Buds themselves feature a stem-less design like the Galaxy Buds, with a small body that houses the electronics. A Beats “b” adorns what may possibly be a touchpad for playback controls. The ear tips will be interchangeable and perhaps made of silicone.

Recent Beats products use the Lightning connector for charging just like the AirPods, but perhaps the Apple-owned company thinks it can cater to more Android users by switching to the universal charging connector. Either that or Apple plans to eventually wean all its products away from the Lightning plug. (MacBooks and iPad Pro charge over USB-C). Should that happen (and it’s long been rumored it would), the iPhone would be the very last Apple product to make the switch.

Apple’s successor to the AirPods Pro is rumored to share the Studio Buds general design – one without stems. In any case, we are expecting the Beats Studio Buds to arrive quite soon considering their mention in iOS 14.6.
