The rumors are true! Beats Fit Pro earbuds are real and they're going to ship on November 5 priced at $199.99, the company has confirmed.
Beats says the new earbuds are its "its most advanced earphones to date" and they certainly sound like they should have all of the features and functionality you could want — and they might just give AirPods Pro a run for their money. Features include Apple's H1 chip for instant device pairing and switching as well as active noise cancellation technology that includes Transparency mode.
Beats today announces Beats Fit Pro, its most advanced earphones to date, engineered for an active lifestyle with remarkable sonic performance and an innovative wingtip design. With its incredibly secure and comfortable fit, Beats Fit Pro represents a breakthrough in all-day fitness earphones, while delivering three listening modes, auto play/pause, sweat- and water-resistant earbuds (IPX4) and all the magical features enabled by the Apple H1 chip.
Unlike AirPods Pro, the Beats earbuds come with a wingtip design that should ensure they don't move around when you do, something that could be important for people who like to use their earbuds in the gym, for example.
With its flexible wingtip design, Beats Fit Pro stays secure in your ear all day—even throughout your most rigorous workouts—ensuring consistent, high-quality acoustic performance. The unique wingtip was digitally modeled using measurements from thousands of ears to achieve the perfect combination of soft, pliable material around a rigid core for a comfortable and stable fit on any ear shape or size.
Early reviews are positive, too.
In terms of battery life, Beats Fit Pro offer up to 6 hours of listening time per earbud while the USB-C-equipped charging case offers up to 27 hours of combined playback. Enable the Adaptive EQ Mode and those numbers increase, however.
