The Beats Studiobuds are a great choice if you're looking for a budget-friendly option with good sound quality and are suitable for exercise, thanks to being sweatproof. They are significantly less expensive than the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3, which may influence your decision if you're cost-conscious. However, the Sennheiser earbuds excel in gaming, TV and video use due to better soundstage and lower latency, and they also offer superior noise isolation quality, which is beneficial for air travel. Additionally, the Sennheiser model has an edge in call quality with a better microphone. If you prefer customization, Sennheiser also offers an app equalizer and app control customization. Both options are wireless, have similar battery life, and are optimized for both Android and Apple devices, with no significant difference in size or weight. Give Feedback

Sound Guys

Chase Bernath | May 2023
"For less than the price of the AirPods, the Beats Studio Buds delivers a good fit, great sound, and active noise cancellation. This is also the first set of Apple-owned Beats earbuds to feature quick pairing with Android devices, albeit at the expense of some key features for Apple users."
