Oprah's favorite Beats Studio Pros are just $200 — that's nearly 45% off: 'The best of the best'

What are they?

We've just gotten our eyes on Oprah's Favorite Things 2023 list and they went straight to her Beats Studio Pro shoutout: "I love all things Beats," she said. "Some of us are over-the-head-headphone people, and if you know one of them, these are the best of the best.” And when is Oprah ever wrong? Indeed, these headphones provide fantastic audio quality and are always a popular choice. If they're not quite what you're looking for, there are also other Beats on sale too.

Aside from being Oprah's favorite cans, the Beats Studio Pros come with one-touch pairing, up to 40 total hours of battery life and fast charging capabilities.

Why is this a good deal?

Audio gear is generally a "you get what you pay for" kind of situation. Sure, you can snag cheaper headphones, but they won't last as long or provide you with the same experience that these will. Just released this year, they're already popular and already at a great discount — nearly 45% off — so it's worth snatching these up while you have the chance.

Why do I need these?

Because Oprah said so. But seriously, the Studio Pros bring a lot to the table. There are three different sound profiles so that you can fine-tune your listening experience, and you'll get lossless audio through the USB-C connection. There is also active noise canceling as well as a transparency mode — this means you can choose to block out the world or stay aware without losing your tunes.

One-touch pairing combined with a wide range of features for both Android and iPhone users make these a great choice no matter your preferred operating system. There is also personalized spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, and those aren't just buzzwords — the music can actually move as you move your head to make it feel as though you're watching your favorite artist on stage.

When it comes to making calls, these cans don't skimp. There are voice-targeting microphones that filter background noise of any ambient sounds, providing you with a clear call quality whether you're asking a smart assistant for help or hopping on a Zoom call.

What reviewers say

A No. 1 New Release, these Beats Studio Pro headphones have only been out since July 2023 but the positive reviews are rolling in.

"Noise-canceling technology has been a game-changer for me. I am able to handle riding the underground trains much better now that the screeching of steel-on-steel can be mostly muted by the magic of technology. I've read that others do not like how tight these headphones are on their heads. I love this aspect of the fit. For me, it feels good — like a hug or (if this makes sense) like how 'calm' feels. They also physically protect my very, very sensitive ears very well," one fan raved.

"Great noise cancellation," wrote another user. "Can’t hear anything but music even if it’s not turned up loud. Very comfortable and fits tightly to the head. Long battery life as well."

Another five-star reviewer said, "I’m really happy about the sound quality. These are probably some of the best headphones I’ve bought in the last 10 years. The only negative is they could be a tad louder, but they are really crisp."

The active noise canceling can block out the world around you and let you focus solely on the sound of your music or whatever else your ears desire.
