Software Update Notes

PLEASE NOTE:  DO NOT update firmware using a "Virtual Machine," such as Windows running in a Linux environment, etc.Updates must be done on a true Windows machine, otherwise the installation may cause problems that would require the headphones to be shipped to us for reprogramming.

When installing your new firmware, you may get a warning message that this software is not from a recognized developer, since this is an early version of the software. If this happens, please click "More info" at the top, and then "Install anyway" near the bottom to continue with the installation.

Visit the AUDEZE SUPPORT CENTER for a step-by-step tutorial on how to setup and use the Audeze HQ App.
