The new Beats Fit Pro from Apple’s audio brand may be the best exercise true wireless noise cancelling earbuds for Apple and Android phones.
The just announced Beats Fit Pro are something of a cross between AirPods Pro with their compact design, active noise cancelling and smart features, and the Powerbeats Pro with their secure design. We saw Beats’ first take on noise cancelling earbuds back in June. While a great option at under $150, many still preferred the Powerbeats Pro for their secure fit thanks to the hook. One of the most surprising features of the earbuds from Apple’s audio brand was full compatibility with Android via the Beats app, unlike the AirPods range. Beats Fit Pro thankfully have many of the same cross-friendly features, making them suitable for both operating systems.
Beats Fit Pro lock in your ear and provide all-day comfort and stability thanks to the flexible, secure-fit wingtips on each bud. Simply twist the earbud back and tuck the wingtip into the upper ear. This makes the earbuds a great option for sports or just those that struggle with the fit of other true wireless earbuds. Find more on the design from Beats here. The buds are IPX4-rated sweat and water resistant.
