Apple Working on New Beats Studio Pro Headphones

Apple is working on new Beats Studio Pro headphones, according to code found in the macOS Ventura 13.4 release candidate.

The headphones appear to have an A2924 model number, which is different from the model numbers for the upcoming Beats Studio Buds+ earphones. The Beats Studio Pro name was found by @aaronp613.


Based on the name, the Beats Studio Pro will be a new version of the current Beats Studio3 headphones. The Beats Studio3 are several years old at this point, and there have been no new Beats-branded over-ear headphones launched since 2017.

Apple appears to be developing the Beats Studio Pro headphones in collaboration with Samuel Ross of A-Cold-Wall. The design looks to be largely identical to the Beats Studio3 headphones, but Apple will likely add internal improvements to justify the "Pro" moniker.

There could be an updated Apple-designed chip, as the Studio3 continue to use the old W1 chip, along with improved Active Noise Cancellation and the addition of a Transparency Mode. Apple also plans to add "Hey Siri" support, a feature that is not available in the current Studio3 headphones. The new Beats Studio Pro headphones will likely see a launch later in the year as new Beats often show up in iOS and macOS weeks or months ahead of launch.

People may disagree vehemently, but I still think the AirPods Max is one of the best headphones on the market, at least for me. They fit securely around my ears and have some of the best ANC in headphones. I can also wear them for hours and hours, and I don't have any discomfort when I wear them. They are like a pair of earmuffs. It's great!

Beats Studio3 - My fav wireless over-ear headphones due to their low profile on my massive heeeed!



Sound is good for D&B + Hip-Hop and the noise cancellation is plenty good enough. Battery standby time has been stellar for me. Really dig the colour scheme of the midnight black model I currently own. Will def try an updated set.

God I hope so. We need it. The Max as it stands right now is loaded with issues.

Hopefully they have better cushions. Mine are peeling off all over my face and ears when I wear them and I've only owned them for about 4 years with very little usage.
After three years of wearing them in the gym, mine were worn, too. I bought replacement cushions from Amazon for $15; these still hold up very well.

I've always loathed my Beats and Apple head/earphones but since getting my Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones it's made it even more crystal clear how little quality Apple actually provide for the money you pay.
