The unreleased “Beats Studio Buds” have received their FCC approval ahead of an announcement that will likely come soon.
According to a new 9to5Mac report, the Federal Communications Commission has approved the new Beats-branded headphones, which gives a clear path to a subsequent public launch.
Unfortunately, it’s a bare bones FCC filing, so there are no additional details regarding the new headphones. There are no images included with the filing, either.
According to the filings, Beats Studio Buds will be models A2512 for the left bud and A2513 for the right. The charging case will likely be model A2514.
The wireless earbuds will feature active noise cancellation similar to AirPods Pro, offer instant pairing, and work with “Hey, Siri.” Their design is more compact with no stem.
From 9to5Mac‘s report:
According to the internal iOS 14.6 files, Apple is working on new earbuds under the Beats brand called “Beats Studio Buds.” Just like AirPods, these are completely wireless earphones that come with a smart charging case.
Based on what we found, Beats Studio Buds will also feature an Apple chip to offer instant pairing and the “Hey, Siri” feature. Compared to the current Powerbeats Pro, Beats’ new earbuds will be much more compact. The codes also reveal that Beats Studio Buds will have Noise Cancellation.
The new Studio buds will also support the Find My app on your iOS device to locate your the buds with a sound or see them on a map if they are lost or missing.
The Beats Studio buds are likely to house the Apple H1 chip that provides improved connection speed and extended range.
