Beats Fit Pro reviews Sporty AirPod Pros with greater audio
Beats has been very busy. After it launched their Studio Buds earlier this year, now the brand owned by Apple is returning with its more expensive Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds. It’s rare to see two brand new Beats products Beats within a single year, but maybe they’re trying to prove that it’s not sitting on the sidelines and being a second-class citizen with Apple’s AirPods and AirPods Pro. The Fit Pros, which cost $200, Fit Pros prove that Beats has finally found its niche.
They’re beautifully designed headphones that offer superb sound quality. They come with an integrated remote for easy navigation through music and calls. Their battery lasts up to 10 hours per charge. Same spatial audio and active head tracking. The same Adaptive audio EQ. They also feature the brand-new skin detect sensor which has was just introduced in the third generation of AirPods.
There have been a lot of questions regarding the way Beats can fit into Apple’s future plans. As far as we know, no products can give us a definite answer. However, The Fit Pro provides some evidence that the Beats brand isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
- Fits snugly and comfortably.
- Very good noise cancellation as well as transparency mode.
- All the Apple ecosystem features you’d want to see
- There is less support for Android features than Studio Buds.
- Wireless charging is missing
Great Apple’s AirPods Pro Alternative
The Fit Pros are a great alternative to Apple’s AirPods Pro. They’re similar in size and shape, but offer better sound quality. You can also charge your Fit Pros wirelessly using the included charging case. If you want to save some money, consider buying the cheaper version of the Fit Pros instead of the pricier Powerbeats Pro.
The Earphones themselves are made well enough so that they’re comfortable to wear for extended periods of time.They fit snugly into the ears without feeling uncomfortable at any point during their usage.There were times where I had to adjust the size of the buds slightly because they felt too small for my ears but once I did that everything worked fine.As far as sound quality goes, these headphones aren’t anything special.While they offer decent volume levels, they lack bass response.However, they’ll get the job done for most people who just want something cheap and simple to listen to music on the go.If you need better audio performance then consider looking elsewhere. The lid is a bit more play than I’d liketo see, however, I’m not nitpicky about this kind of thing.
Despite having some minor design flaws (like not including a built-in battery) and missing features like wireless charging, Apple’s new $249 Beats Solo 3 Wireless Headphones offer better sound quality than any previous version of the company’s signature headphones.They’re even easier to set up thanks to their updated Bluetooth connectivity. And since we already know how well these headphones perform with iOS devices, let’s see just how good they sound on mac OS too!
The buds, they have an unique style due to their permanent bent wings tips. Beats sells the buds in gray, black white, and pinkish purple. The purple and gray versions are the most popular from the Verge staff. With 5.6 grams for each earbud they are slightly heavier than AirPods Pro but lighter than other fitness-focused buds like those from Jaybird’s Vista. The latest Jaybra Elite 7 Active buds weigh smaller at 5.5 grams. However they weigh, the Beats are very comfortable and are also equipped with microventing to ease pressure on the ear.
Beats is extremely satisfied with the amount of features it squeezed inside its Fit Pros, which have the smallest enclosure of the company and that’s not even including the wing tips, evidently. They’re 30 percent larger in parts than Studio Buds and the transducer has a 15 percent greater capacity. Three sizes of ear tips made of silicone are included in the box as well as a shorter USB-C cable.
But what are the tips on the wings?
They’re supposed to help the earbuds to stay in place. However, I’ve noticed that with some earbuds like that of the new generation Pixel Buds they have tips of the wing and numbs may cause discomfort as you wear the earbuds, which is why there’s an issue with Beats making the wing tips a permanent part to the overall design. However, the company claims that it sweated over the details of the shape of the wing and its material. In the course of trying these Fit Pros – often for hours at a time, I haven’t felt any discomfort.
The tip of the wing is elastic and flexible enough that it doesn’t press against the ear’s concha in a painful way. It will be felt during prolonged listening I’m not saying that it’s unpleasant however, it only causes a slight itch instead of more severe irritation. It’s possible to alleviate it simply by changing the earbuds.
In my experience, the Fit Pros worked well for me. I let a few friends try them out and they had similar experiences. They passed the fitness test and did not feel even a little loose while running. They stayed inside the midst of meals and didn’t feel any discomfort. These Fit Pros are certified IPx4 for sweat and water resistancy. That’s good for workout use but they fall below the IP57 of the latest active buds.
These headphones have the same features as the Studio Buds, except for the ability to remap the long-pressing volume buttons to adjust the volume instead of changing the sound cancellation function. I appreciate being able to change the volume without needing to go into the settings menu.
However, there’s a unique feature that is it’s the first time it’s possible to change the mapping of a long-press to change the volume instead of adjusting the sound cancellation function or calling Siri. It’s possible to do this within the iOS settings menu, and is something Apple’s AirPods Pro can’t do, as can the Beats Studio Buds. I appreciate having this option to change the earbuds, even if chose to stick to the default earbuds. Add that remapping feature to the other earbuds you have, Apple.
The new Beats Pro Powerbeats have a better sound quality than the previous model. However, they aren’t as powerful as the AirPods Pro, but they still fit well into my ears. I also really enjoy the design of the new buds. The new buds are lighter than the old ones, making them easier to carry around. And the new buds have a better battery life than the older models.
Beats has upgraded its new earphones with 9.5mm speakers. It’s not the over-inflated bass Beats of the past: the company shook off that image in the past few years. They’re the Fit Pro. If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about these new buds, it’s their ability to play louder. I found myself turning the volume way down so they wouldn’t disturb others at parties or events where music plays loud enough for everyone to hear. However, even though the max volume seems lower than previous models, the fit pro buds were just as powerful.
They didn’t seem to lose any power when playing loudly but did lack some bass compared to the older version. If there’s one flaw I’ve observed, it’s the maximum volume. The Fit Pros appear to be able to reach a higher volume limit than other Fit Pros and, therefore, if you tend to turn up the volume to get motivation while running or during your exercise routine, you may be disappointed.
Compared to the Studio Buds, the Fit Pro has better sound quality because they use an upgraded version of Apple’s EarPods (H1) instead of the older ones used by the Studio Buds. They also offer additional features like noise cancellation and sweat resistance.
- Spatial sound technology allows for dynamic head tracking with 3D positional audio.
- Automatic device switching between an iPhone, an iPad, and a MacBook Pro
- Automatically syncs across all your iOS devices.
- Sharing audio files online
- Find My integration
- Hands free “Siri” voice command
It’s true that both devices support fast pairing for Bluetooth headphones, but they don’t offer the same level of convenience.The Studio Buds allow you to pair them without having to open an application first, whereas the Fit Pros require you to launch the Google Play Store before connecting.They’re similar when it comes to accessing music controls, which means that if you want to change songs, skip tracks, adjust volume, etc., then you’ll need to go through the Google Play store.There are some differences between the two models though, so let’s take a look at each individually.
Active Noise Cancellation Technology
If you turn off Adaptive Noise Cancellation, you get six days of continuous listening time — but if you don’t mind sacrificing some audio clarity, you could easily listen for seven hours straight without worrying about running out of power. With Transparency Mode enabled, the headphones offer 26 hours of playtime and they charge via USB-C, so there’s no need to worry about plugging them into any wall outlets. You can even charge the whole setup at once by using the included cable.
It includes the new Skin Detect Sensor, which was originally introduced in Apple’s new Airpods.The sensor uses infrared light to distinguish whether an object is fleshy (skin) or hard (like fabric).It then adjusts audio accordingly so that no sound comes through if there isn’t anything nearby.
If you’re using an iPhone XS Max (or newer), you may be able to hear others better than before thanks to Apple’s new “beamforming technology” which uses multiple microphones to focus sound into specific directions.On older iPhones, however, the audio quality was noticeably worse when compared to the previous generation — even though they were plugged directly into their phones.
The Fit Pros effectively bridged the gap between normal and exercise-oriented headphones by bringing back Apple’s whole suite of tricks for the ecosystem, including its new in-ear detection technology. They were also designed to fit better than previous models, making them perfect for exercising. However, despite these improvements, they weren’t without flaws; namely, the lack of an option for wireless charging (which would otherwise solve one problem) and the fact that they didn’t come with any kind of case. Still, if you want to get the most out of your workout sessions, then these might just be worth considering.
If you already own any Apple earbuds or even purchased the Studio Buds before, these aren’t necessary purchases.The Beats Fit Pro might be the perfect replacement if you were hoping for a pair of wireless headphones that look like regular ones but offer better sound quality.They come with a charging case and a set of interchangeable silicone tips so you won’t need any extra accessories.You’ll get up to 5 hours of battery life when using them at maximum volume.
