Apple's Upcoming Beats Studio Buds+ Earbuds Spotted in FCC Database

Apple is working on a new version of the 2021 Beats Studio Buds called the Beats Studio Buds+, and a launch could be nearing based on the fact that Apple has submitted FCC filings for the device. There are two listings, one for each Bluetooth-enabled earbud.

We first heard about the Beats Studio Buds+ in March following the launch of the iOS 16.4 release candidate. The Beats Studio Buds+ look similar to the Beats Studio Buds and will have similar functionality, according to details obtained by MacRumors.

The earbuds will continue to use a Beats chip, but Apple is planning to add improved Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency to the Beats Studio Buds+.

There is no word as of yet on when Apple plans to launch the Beats Studio Buds+ or what the pricing will be, but with potential advancements over the current $150 Beats Studio Buds we could see them priced a bit higher.

Powerbeats Pro are about to turn 4 years old and are still being sold by Apple. Just update those! And no I don't want the Fit Pro's. I need ear hooks!
I too value the earhooks.
Buds without them are a no go for me.

I'll never understand why the Beats brand is still around.
Hmm... I wonder if it's because they still sell

Global TWS (true wireless stereo) shipments grew 17% in Q1 2022 to reach 68.2 million units, according to the latest Canalys data. Market leader Apple’s TWS shipments were up 14%. Apple’s AirPods line grew 3% to reach 19.3 million units, while Beats by Dre, Apple’s audio sub-brand, contributed more significant growth, increasing 553% to reach 2.4 million units. Beats’ strong performance was driven by the popularity of its Studio Buds and the recently launched Fit Pro.

Yeah, they are still my go to for running since they stay put, but getting them to charge has become a bigger issue as they've gotten older. Fingers crossed that they will release an update with an H2 chip, ANC, USB-C and an updated case (bonus if it is more compact) with more reliable charging. ?

It’s probably the bestseller though
How can that be? They don't come in Moon, Dune, or Earth colors like the Beats Fit Pro
