Beats and Airpods are two of the most popular headphones on the market. Each of these devices have its own features and benefits. Let’s compare the two and see which one is better.

Beats by Dre are owned by Apple, and have stylish design and power. These headphones were developed by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Lovine. Many athletes favor Studio Pro Beats because of the features they hold.

They come in various models, including the Solo, Studio, and PowerBeats Series. Each version caters to different needs and preferences. These headphones include features like noise cancellation, long battery life, and Bluetooth.

These headphones offer elite listening for both casual and professional use.

“I think beats are better because they produce a louder bass production and sound quality,” said Darren Mears, sophomore. 

On the other hand, Apple’s Airpods have had a large impact on the wireless earbud market since they were released in 2016. They’re also known for its compactness and convenience of the headphones pair well with all iPhones. 

The AirPods lineup includes the regular AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max, offering different options based on your preference.  All of the AirPods lineups are earphones except for the AirPod Max which are over-the-ear headphones.

These headphones have many features: active noise cancellation, spatial audio, and hands-free Siri access. Airpods provide an excellent listening experience for everyone.

“I think that AirPods are better than Beats because they tend to be more comfortable when you’re working out or doing anything that involves being active. Especially if you have piercings, they won’t squeeze your ears like Beats do,” said Allex Williams, senior.

When comparing Beat and Airpods there are many factors including design, sound quality, comfort, and price. While Beats have a bold and stylish design, Airpods are known for their comfort.

The price range between the two is very similar ranging between 150-600 dollars. The most expensive of the two is the Airpods Maxs and when compared to Beats Studio Pros they are the same headphones with a different design for double the price.

If you are looking for something more convenient, Airpods are the way to go but. If you are looking for comfort, Beats are the way to go. Which headphones do you prefer?
