As per a report GSMArena, the Beats Studio 3 pack in Apple's W1 chip that was introduced by Apple in its AirPods in 2016.

The over-ear headphones also claim up to 40 hours on a single charge, having noise-cancelling turned off.
The headphones also feature Class 1 Bluetooth for better connectivity as well as slightly improved range. In terms of design, the Studio 3 Wireless comes in a little larger than the Solo 3 Wireless and will be offered in a range of six colours among which two are touted to be 'limited edition' variants — the Shadow Grey and Porcelain Gold. The Studio 3 headphones will come with a carrying case, a 3.5mm RemoteTalk cable as well as a USB charging cable.
Apple has previously used the W1 chip in the Beats Solo 3, Beats X and the PowerBeats 3.
The Beats Studio 3 Wireless will be pitted against rival offerings, the Bose QC35 and the Sony MDR-1000X.
