Apple Updates Beats Fit Pro Firmware to Version 4B65

Apple today released a new 4B65 firmware update for the Beats Fit Pro headphones that came out in November, updating the earbuds from the prior 4B58 firmware that was available at launch.

Apple does not offer information on what's included in refreshed firmware updates for the Beats Fit Pro, so we don't know what improvements or bug fixes the new firmware brings.

There's no standard way to upgrade the ‌Beats‌‌ software, but firmware is generally installed over-the-air while the earbuds are connected to an iOS device. Putting the Beats Fit Pro‌‌‌‌‌ in the case, connecting them to a power source, and then pairing them‌‌‌‌‌ to an iPhone or an iPad should force the update after a short period of time.

Beats Fit Pro are Apple's newest Beats earbuds, featuring flexible wingtips to keep them in the ear, a charging case, silicone tips, Active Noise Cancellation, spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, and an H1 chip for "Hey Siri" support.

If we find notable changes after the firmware updates are installed, we'll share details, but the software likely includes performance improvements and bug fixes.

Love my Beats Fit Pro. PowerBeats Pro have been my buds of choice the last couple years. Don't like AirPods, because they don't stay in my ears. Fit Pros stay in my ears, and have the newer features the PowerBeats Pro didn't.

An article about an earphone getting an update, which we don’t know what is improved. Handy.

If I were to get a new pair of earphones my first choice would be the Powebeats Pro, the Beats Fit Pro or the Beats Studio Buds, their industrial design is far superior to any the unappealing white AirPods, but the way that Apple treats the Beats brand as second class is just disappointing. I'm enrolled on Apple's hearing study and the only valid hearing devices accepted are any AirPods or the wired EarPods, not a single Beats earphone or headphone can be used.

That's basically my review in a nutshell. :) I would add, I like the Beats Fit Pro look better than Airpods/Airpods Pro (I got grey).

The one product I don’t think are worth the price. Hoping the second rev will be better
I've got AirPod Pros as well and I think I like the Beats Fit Pros better- and they are cheaper. The sound and the fit (for active use) are better for me, they last longer on a charge, and except for the extended Find My features the feature set is the same. The main drawback is the case- while it holds more charge, it's bulkier, clunkier, and doesn't support wireless charging.
