Do Beats Fit Pro have active noise canceling?

Best answer: Yes, the Beats Fit Pro do feature active noise cancelation (ANC), and they also offer a Transparency mode.

ANC like the AirPods Pro

Just like the AirPods Pro, the Beats Fit Pro feature ANC, which means they can help you tune out the world around you so you can focus on what you're listening to. Some of our favorite noise-canceling headphones come in the form of earbuds, and the Beats Fit Pro might just be the kind of ANC earbuds you're looking to pick up.

How does it work? In short, the Beats Fit Pro uses microphones and software to detect noise coming from around you and then creates sound (that you can't really hear) to block it out. The result? A totally serene listening experience, and it can make the world seem like it's disappeared.

Transparency is good when you need it

The one problem with ANC is sometimes it can dull your sense of hearing so much that it can be dangerous depending on your environment. That's why Transparency Mode exists.

When activated, this mode lets you listen to your music (or talk to a friend or colleague) while simultaneously listening to the background noise in your environment. So, if you're walking along a busy street or want to be able to hear when someone calls out your name in the office, you'll still be able to do that.

You don't need Transparency Mode on something like the AirPods 3 because they don't have ANC to block out the noise, not to mention they don't sit in your ear as firmly without ear tips.
