The newest Beats earbuds have been released. The Beats Fit Pro has been finally launched, following some early clues in iOS 15.1. This pair of earplugs looks identical to the Studio Buds from earlier this year, but with an extra fit wing, or “wingtip,” as the brand refers to it. The $200 Fit Pro is well-suited for exercises, but it’s also packed with the biggest qualities from Apple’s new AirPods for all-day use, thanks to an IPX4 rating.
The Beats Fit Pro has Apple’s H1 chip, which allows for hands-free Siri use, one-touch pairing, iOS’s latest Find My features, automated device switching, and audio sharing. Apple’s new fancy skin detection sensor, which enhances automatic pause accuracy, is also included. H1 also drives the ear tip fit test that’s embedded into the earbuds’ settings via iOS, according to Beats. Like the latest AirPods, the Beats Fit Pro has Adaptive EQ, which microprocessor based audio and in-ward facing mics to continuously scan and adjust low- and mid-range frequencies. The Beats Fit Pro also has spatial audio and dynamic head tracking, which are major features of Apple’s new earbuds. This allows you to listen to music in Dolby Atmos or watch movies and series in Dolby Atmos.

With active noise cancellation, the Beats Fit Pro go above and beyond the new AirPods (ANC). The ANC system, according to the business, “continuously adjusts in real time,” scanning and altering up to 200 times per second to compensate for variations “in fit and movement.” There’s also a transparency mode that lets you hear what’s going on around you. Adaptive EQ takes over when both ANC and transparency are turned off to maintain things sounding as good as feasible.
New bespoke transducers and exhaust systems, according to Beats, have improved overall audio quality. There’s also a new acoustic design that promises “impressive dynamic range and clarity across the frequency spectrum,” according to the manufacturer. On the outside, on-board controls allow you to listen to music and make phone calls without having to reach for your phone. If you prefer simple access to noise control, Beats allows you to configure the full press action for on-board volume control (ANC, transparency and off). During calls, beamforming microphones focus on your speech, while internal microphones and an accelerometer filter out background noise, according to the business. The Beats Fit Pro will not have spatial audio in Group FaceTime at launch, but it will be available in a future update.

With ANC or transparency mode turned on, Beats claims up to six hours of listening time, plus another 21 hours in the charging case. When you disable them and use the Fit Pro in Adaptive EQ mode, you can get up to seven hours of battery life on the buds and another 27 hours in the case. Although the case does not support wireless charging, it does have a Fast Fuel feature that allows you to play for an hour in just five minutes. While the Beats Fit Pro comes with everything an iOS user needs, Android users will need to download the Beats app. One-touch pairing, the fit test, the option to change listening modes, and customization of the long press action are all available in the app.
Pre-orders for the Beats Fit Pro are available now for $200 via Apple’s website and other retailers in the United States. Black, white, grey, and purple are some of the color possibilities. The earphones will be available in China in early December, with shipping starting on November 5th. The Fit Pro will be available “in other regions” next year, according to Beats. With the purchase of the Beats Fit Pro, new users will also receive six months of Apple Music.
