I've had no issues with mine so haven't been concerned with firmware. What issues are you having? Regular or Pro?
I have the Pro's... I tried it months ago so I'll have to dig up the instructions and try it again. I remember it being a fairly complex process... Did it make any difference when you did the firmware? If the sound is the same I probably won't bother :)

Yeah, sorry, I meant I haven't updated the firmware, haven't felt a need to. I have the non-Pro, maybe that's the difference.

Hopefully, they aren't merely a tweak if the Galaxy Buds+ with ANC. Looks like battery life is last-gen at about 5 to 6 hours (without/with ANC).

Don't the Buds+ have a dual driver? These seem to be a 8.2mm single dynamic. What was in the first Galaxy buds?? The AKG are IPX7 and have their own design and colors. Seems to be more different than the same.

They have a metal sound tube as well as we can see...

I recently got the M&D MW07, and I don't like the sound. The bass is bloated and treble is harsh (shrilly treble) like I saw of the response. I don't know how people can rate the sound higher than APP. Tonality sucks. Boosted treble doesn't make more details. It's V-shaped with not enough mids presence.

Evidence that SQ is subjective. I love my APP but there is absolutely no comparison SQ wise to the MW07. APP sound like $20 buds if you go back to back with them. My ears must be old because I don't hear the treble spikes in the MW07 and I also don't find the bass to be nearly as boosted as other TWS such as the Sony, Senns or Ankers. Compared to the APP which are very mid-centric, sure. In any event, different strokes I guess. My Senn2s arrive tomorrow. I don't really need them given I am quite satisfied with my APP, LP2 and MW07 Plus but why the hell not? Sitting in my basement 12 hours a day working warrants some new toys. If they have fixed the dreaded battery drain and if the ANC is decent, they will be winners.

Compared to the Galaxy Buds+

Pros:

IPx7 waterproof
ANC
Swipe control (not programmable)
Included Comply foam tips
Bigger driver

Cons:

Battery life & charging speed
Heavier
No scalable codec
No gaming mode
Double tap control is not programmable
No notification support
No Spotify integration
Master/slave configuration (?)

Looks good, but the placement of the buds in the case could be inverted. Also no aptx I believe
