The Beats Fit Pro comes at a price of $199. The earbuds are launched in global markets but not in India at the time I’m writing this review.
Beats Fit Pro is available in four different colour options: Beats White, Beats Black, Stone Purple and Sage Gray.

Before we talk more about the earbuds, let’s see what on-paper specs look like:
- Connectivity: Bluetooth
- Supported OS: Android and iOS
- Weight: 55.1 grams
It’s small enough to fit in a pocket and has a nice, smooth finish. The matte finish, rounded edges, and magnetic earbud alignment make it look good.
The Beats Fit Pro earbuds are surprisingly small for the number of features they pack, thanks to the soft silicone wing tips that help keep the bud in place. You will find three sets of ear tips included with the earbuds to help you find the best fit possible.

When it comes to fit, these earbuds do a fantastic job of staying inside your ears. However, the perfect fit did put a little bit of pressure on the ears, which I felt after wearing them for some time.
In spite of their small size, the earbuds have a small button tucked under the Beats logo. The music controls can be a little sensitive, so just be careful while putting and taking out the earbuds.
If you’re a fitness freak, you’ll appreciate the IPX4 water-resistant rating of the Beats Pro Fit earphones which makes them sweat-proof.
Beats Fit Pro earbuds have 9.5mm drivers and the very same Apple H1 chip as the AirPods Pro. The Fit Pro earbuds have excellent sound quality, especially for workout purposes. They have a sound that is well-balanced and fully rounded, making it suitable for a number of different music genres.
Despite the fact that these earbuds are designed to be worn while on the go, working out, or at the gym, there is still a decent amount of bass. The bass is deep and surprisingly punchy, making it ideal for trendy hip-hop music.
Importantly, the deep bass doesn’t overpower the warm mids or crisp highs that give the vocals a clear, crisp sound.
Noise cancellation also plays a significant role in the overall sound. With ANC enabled, you can get a really good seal, turn on the volume, and just focus on yourself in a gym without worrying about the background noise.
Apple Music offers thousands of tracks that have been mixed in Dolby Atmos, which, when listened to with true wireless earbuds, create a spatial audio experience that sounds fantastic. However, it’s important to note that this is an iOS-only feature, so Android users will be unable to take advantage of this amazing experience.
The Beats Fit Pro uses five of its six mics to deliver great call quality, and the results are generally good.
Beats claims that the Fit Pro could last for up to 6 hours with ANC on, and the case gives you an additional three charge cycles (18 hours) for a total battery life of 24 hours. The earbuds will last even longer if ANC is turned off.
But what if you lose charge mid-workout? This is where Fast Fuel technology comes in, which lets you listen to music for up to an hour after only 5 minutes of charging in the charging case.
Overall, the battery life is comparable to other noise-cancelling earbuds, which is good, but shorter than other TWS earbuds without ANC.
The fact that the Beats Fit Pro does not enable wireless charging is the only real letdown; as a result, you’ll always have to use a USB-C charging cable.
Although Beats developed the Fit Pro to function with both iOS and Android devices, Android users will not be able to access the whole array of features. To be more specific, they will not be able to use the spatial audio.
If you are an iPhone user, you’ll get AirPod-inspired features like audio sharing, automatic device switching, and finding the buds if you lose them. If you have an Android device, just download the Beats app from Play Store, and you will have access to a variety of features. Some of these features include one-touch pairing, customised controls, and battery levels.
Touch controls are located on the outer region of each bud and lets you play, pause, and skip tracks. With a long hold, you can activate the ambient listening mode, which turns off noise cancellation and then turns it back on with a second long press.

The Transparency mode, on the other hand, makes use of the microphones to bring in ambient sound to your ears so you are aware about your surroundings.
The Fit Pro comes with an automatic ear identification feature that employs skin sensors to detect if you are wearing your earbuds. This feature ensures that the earbuds do not mistake your pockets for your ears.
The Beats Fit Pro offer a similar experience to the AirPods Pro at a lower price. They have a lot of features, like ANC, spatial audio support, and hands-free Siri on iOS, but Android users won’t get the full experience.
There are three different sizes of eartips inside the box in the box to ensure the best fit possible. The good sound quality, transparency mode, active noise cancellation (ANC), and decent battery life all combine to offer a great experience.
Overall, the Beats Fit Pro are a good alternative to Apple’s top-of-the-line true wireless earbuds for people who like to work out.
