The Beats Fit Pro True Wireless are the sportier sibling of the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless. Unlike the Studio Buds, they're packed with a few more iOS-centric features like an H1 chip for seamless pairing with your Apple devices, adaptive EQ, which is advertised by Apple to optimize sound delivery to the unique shape of your ears, and Spatial Audio support including head tracking. They also have an adaptive active noise cancelling (ANC) system that automatically adapts to the noise around you. Unfortunately, users have reported a buzzing sound coming from their left bud. It's worth noting that we didn't experience this issue, though.

Our Verdict

7.2 Neutral Sound

The Beats Fit Pro are satisfactory for neutral sound. Their slightly v-shaped sound profile is well-suited for genres like rock and pop, that benefit from a touch of extra thump and punch. Vocals and instruments also sound bright and clear, although some users may find that the treble is a bit harsh. Unfortunately, their app doesn't offer an EQ or presets to help you customize their sound. That said, you can access Apple's Spatial Audio feature when connected to an iOS device, which uses head tracking for a more immersive experience.

Pros
  • Apple's Spatial Audio feature available.
Cons
  • Bad passive soundstage.
7.7 Commute/Travel

The Beats Fit Pro are good for commute and travel. These buds are small, lightweight, and portable, making them easy to store in your pocket or bag on the move. They also hav an ANC system to tackle the rumbles of bus engines and passenger chatter. On the downside, the buds have just over five hours of continuous playback time, which may not last through long trips without needing a recharge. Their fit is also a bit bulky, and some users may find them uncomfortable over time.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Great noise isolation performance.
Cons
  • Sub-par continuous battery life.
8.1 Sports/Fitness

The Beats Fit Pro are great for sports and fitness. Thanks to their stability fin design, they won't fall out of your ears during a run or workout. They're also well-built and are rated IPX4 for resistance against water splashes. However, some users may find their bud shape and fins uncomfortable as they don't fit all ears well. The fins are non-removable, so you won't be able to get rid of them if they annoy you.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Very stable in-ear fit.
Cons
  • Bad passive soundstage.
6.9 Office

The Beats Fit Pro are fair for office use. While these well-built buds have noise cancelling to help block out coworker chit-chat, their 5.2-hour continuous playback time may not be enough to get you through your shift unless you take the time to recharge them up again. They also don't support multi-device pairing, meaning you won't stay connected to your PC and smartphone simultaneously.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Great noise isolation performance.
  • H1 chip for seamless pairing with Apple devices.
Cons
  • No multi-device pairing.
  • Unremarkable microphone performance.
  • Sub-par continuous battery life.
5.2 Wireless Gaming

The Beats Fit Pro are Bluetooth-only headphones. While you can use them via Bluetooth on PCs or use them for mobile gaming, their latency is likely too high to be recommended for this purpose.

5.1 Wired Gaming

The Beats Fit Pro are Bluetooth-only earbuds, and you can't use them wired.

6.5 Phone Calls

The Beats Fit Pro are just okay for phone calls. Their integrated mic has a mediocre overall performance, and while your voice is understandable, it sounds thin, dark, and muffled. The mic also really struggles to separate your voice from background noise, and speech can be drowned out altogether if you're taking a call from a busy street. That said, they have ANC and can help block out sounds around you as you talk.

Pros
  • Well-built design.
  • Great noise isolation performance.
Cons
  • No multi-device pairing.
  • Unremarkable microphone performance.
  • 7.2 Neutral Sound

  1. Updated Jan 23, 2023: We've updated this review and made minor changes to the text to ensure its accuracy.
  2. Updated Jan 18, 2023: We've updated these headphones to the latest firmware and retested these headphones. Our retest resulted in changes to Sound Profile, Test Settings, and Noise Isolation. However, we are currently unable to attribute this to a firmware update due to issues experienced when originally testing this unit.
  3. Updated Oct 18, 2022: We've added a comparison between these headphones and the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro True Wireless in Passive Soundstage.
  4. Updated Oct 14, 2022: We've added a comparison between these headphones and the Sony LinkBuds S Truly Wireless in Battery.
  5. Updated Aug 11, 2022: We’ve added a comparison with the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 in the 'Battery' text. The Beats Fit Pro have fairly typical battery life for truly wireless headphones, but the Sennheiser's longer playback time is favorable if you don't want to worry about recharging your headphones as often.
  6. Updated Jun 14, 2022: We've added a clarification to the Beat Fit Pro's default control scheme. They don't have volume control by default, but you can remap this feature to either your left or right earbud.
  7. Updated Jan 21, 2022: Review published.
  8. Updated Jan 17, 2022: Early access published.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Beats Fit Pro come in four color variants: 'Beats Black', 'Beats White', 'Sage Gray', and 'Stone Purple'. They also come in three skin-toned colorways as part of Kim K's Special Edition collection: 'Moon', 'Dune', and 'Earth'. We tested the 'Beats Black' variant, but it doesn't have a label. If you come across another variant of these headphones, please let us know in the discussions, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Beats Fit Pro are the sportier sibling of the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless. Unlike those buds, though, they're full of new features like Apple's Spatial Audio when connected to an iOS device and active noise cancelling (ANC), as well as old Beats staples like an H1 chip for seamless pairing with Apple devices. They also have stability fins, which ensures that they don't fall out during your run or workout, and are even rated IPX4 for water resistance, making them a solid choice for workouts or runs in the park. However, their design isn't as comfortable as similar sporty choices like the Jaybird Vista 2 Truly Wireless or the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless.

These buds have a sleek in-ear look that's somewhat similar to the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless. However, they also have non-removable stability fins that you can fold to better fit the curve of your ear. The manufacturer's logo is on each bud's button, and they come in four main color variants: 'Beats Black', 'Beats White', 'Sage Gray', and 'Stone Purple'. You can also purchase these buds in the following Kim K Special Edition colorways, which are skin colored: 'Moon', 'Dune', and 'Earth'.

These buds have a fairly comfortable and lightweight fit, but they don't feel as pleasant in-ear as the Beats Studio Buds True Wireless. They have a one-size-fits-all bud shape that's a little bulky, so if you have small ears, they may be too large. Some users have reported their fit to be uncomfortable and that the buds' plastic body can hurt after time, depending on the shape of your ear. The malleable stability fins can become uncomfortable over time, especially as you can't remove them.

The Beats Fit Pro have unremarkable controls. There's a button on each bud, and the controls are easy to use, as the left and right buttons have the same commands. The buttons give you mechanical feedback to let you know when you've pushed the button, and there are also beeps to indicate that you've registered a command. However, there aren't any voice prompts. While there isn't volume control by default, you can remap it via the companion app. It'll allow you to assign the volume up or down controls to either the left or right bud. You'll lose ANC control if you re-map volume controls, though.

On either bud:

  • One press: Plays and pauses audio. Also answers and ends calls.
  • Double press: Skips the track forward.
  • Triple press: Skips the track backward.
  • Press and hold: Cycles between ANC, 'Transparency mode', intended to let you hear ambient sound while listening to audio, and both modes off. You can change this command to activate voice assistant in the companion app.

These headphones have a good case. It's similar to the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless, with the same plastic body with a matte finish. However, it's smaller, and there's a magnet to hold the buds in place. If you mold the stability fins to fit your ears, you won't have an issue closing the case. That said, the case doesn't support Qi Wireless charging.

Build Quality

These buds have a good build quality. They feel similar built to the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless and Beats Studio Buds True Wireless with a mostly plastic design. They're also rated IPX4 for resistance against splashes of water. While they feel like they'll survive a couple of accidental drops without taking too much damage, the tips and fins feel like they could rip over time.

Stability

The Beats Fit Pro have great stability thanks to their stability fin design. Although they don't have ear hooks like the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless, once you have a good seal, they won't move around, even if you have small ears. They'll also stay in place during moderate physical activity, like a run in the park or a workout.

Sound Profile
Bass Amount
-1.18 dB
Treble Amount
-1.31 dB

These buds have a very slight v-shaped sound profile. Their extra bass adds a touch of thump and punch to mixes while vocals and instruments are bright. Some users may find their sound a little harsh, and unfortunately, they lack sound customization features to help you customize their sound to your liking. There have also been a few reports that the headphones sound better with their ANC off. We performed subjective listening to see if there was a difference in sound quality between ANC on and off. When off, they sounded a bit clearer and less boxy. That said, when we did a sweep to compare frequency responses, there wasn't a difference between both modes.

We originally had trouble testing these buds. Their fin design is somewhat large and tends to cause the buds to slowly fall out of our test rig's ears. In addition, they have an adaptive EQ feature, but there are conflicting reports online regarding how to activate it. As a result, we can't confirm whether the EQ is enabled when the ANC is on or off. However, after retesting them, we achieved slightly different results in the treble range than our original measurements, and we're currently unsure whether these changes are due to a firmware update or test variations. That said, we conducted all of the sound tests except for 'Noise Isolation' with the ANC off.

These headphones have outstanding bass accuracy, as the response is fairly flat and even. There's a bump in the low to mid-bass that adds a touch of extra thump, rumble, and punch to your mixes, but it's not enough to overwhelm vocals and instruments. In songs like Vegas by Doja Cat, the bassline is still prominent, but it doesn't bleed into or muddy the mid range.

Dips

The peaks and dips performance is good. A peak in the low-bass adds thump and rumble to mixes, but then the L/R drivers fall out of sync, resulting in a dip in the low-mid, which only affects the left driver, thinning out vocals and instruments, while a dip in the mid-mid only affects the right driver, nudging these sounds to the back of the mix. After this point, the drivers are more in sync, so a peak across the high-mid to low-treble makes the upper harmonics of vocals and instruments sound bright and intense. Another peak in the mid-treble renders sibilants like cymbals piercing.

These buds have a passable imaging performance. Most of Beats' products have good quality control and ergonomics, which ensures that the L/R drivers are well-matched. However, our unit displays a slight mismatch. There's a small peak in the low-bass range of the group delay response, which indicates that the bass is slightly loose. There's some mismatch also present in phase response, particularly in the mid range. However, it's minor and can be hard to hear with real-life content. On the upside, the drivers are well-matched in amplitude and frequency response, which helps ensure a balanced and stable stereo image.

These buds have a bad passive soundstage, although this is normal from in-ear headphones. Like the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro True Wireless, sound can't interact with your outer ear, which is one of the factors in creating an out-of-head sound experience. As a result, their passive soundstage seems small and as if coming from inside your head. Since the buds also have a closed-back design, their soundstage is perceived as closed-off.

The rest of the response falls within good limits, resulting in clear and pure audio reproduction.

When we originally tested these headphones, we encountered issues keeping the ANC on, which affected our noise isolation results. After using silicone to activate the sensors, we could retest this feature. These buds have an adaptive noise cancelling system, meaning they automatically adjust their performance based on the noise around you. As a result, they can block out a great amount of ambient noise, like the low rumble of bus engines. They can also tackle ambient chatter and the high-pitched hum of computer fans. There's a bit of cabin pressure present, as well as white noise, which can be a bit irritating. Their transparency mode doesn't feel as natural as the Apple AirPods Pro Truly Wireless, but you'll still hear your surroundings well.

These buds have a mediocre battery performance. They manufacturer advertises them to last six hours continuously, but we measured just over five. Battery life varies depending on use. Luckily, their carrying case supplies an extra three charges. They also have a five-minute quick charge that delivers one hour of playtime when the battery's low, and you can even use one bud while the other is charging. If you value a longer continuous battery life, check out the Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless 3 instead.

The Beats app is sub-par. Unfortunately, unlike the app that accompanies the Sony LinkBuds S Truly Wireless, it lacks sound customization features like an EQ or presets. You can remap the ANC controls for volume control. You can also manually switch between ANC on, transparency mode, and normal. If you're using an Android device, you can register your buds for updates.

These buds have alright Bluetooth connectivity. They have an H1 chip, which lets you seamlessly pair them with your Apple devices. If you like to stream video, they have low latency on iOS devices, which ensures that your audio and visuals stay in sync. Their latency on Android devices is higher, but it still falls within good limits. However, their PC latency falls out of good limits, so there can be lip-syncing issues present. Keep in mind that some apps and devices compensate for latency.
