Apple Releases New Firmware for Powerbeats Pro, Beats Fit Pro and Beats Studio Buds

Apple today released new firmware updates for the Powerbeats Pro, Beats Fit Pro, and the Beats Studio Buds. The ‌Powerbeats Pro‌ firmware is version 5B55, up from 4A394, the Beats Studio Buds firmware is version 10M2155, up from 10M359, and the Beats Fit Pro firmware is version 5B55, up from 4E64.

Apple does not provide details on what's included in refreshed firmware updates for the Beats earbuds or for the AirPods, so we are not sure 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 in the case, connecting them to a power source, and then pairing them‌‌‌‌‌ to an iPhone or iPad should force the update after a short period of time.

If we find notable changes after the firmware update is installed, we'll share details, but the software likely includes performance improvements and bug fixes rather than outward-facing changes.

Update: Apple appears to have added a Beats Studio Buds
option that allows users to cancel a call by pressing the on-device button once or twice.

The option to end a call with one or two taps has been added to my Powerbeats Pro too if anyone is curious! :)

Just today at the gym I realized the ANC on the Beats Fit Pro got about 60% worse. I could clearly hear people talking, with music at 80% volume.

I guess it’s the sad state of things given they are basically Airpods Pros and Apple had to worsen ANC on them too due to the Jawbone troll laswuit.

I hope the update fixes that, but I won’t be holding my breath for that.

Probably a firmware that downgrades quality and 'forcing' people to upgrade to the new Airpods Pro 2.

It fully replaces it in every way:
Longer batter life,
Smaller carrying/charging case,
ANC + Ambient sound,
Smaller buds that still fit when working out or flips and twists,
Same chipset and features like, Spacial Audio as the AirPods Pro/2.
Better mids & highs than the #3s of your earphones.
the best thing going for the powerbeats pro is the ability to use it during rough movements. the powerbeats pro pretty much fits on almost everyone's ears without shaking or falling out. the beats fit pro is hit or miss.
