The news: An all-new pair of Beats headphones just dropped with a slew of features comparable to AirPods Pro.
- The main difference between these and every other pair of Beats buds or AirPods is the built-in wing design that bends for a more secure fit inside your ear
- Multiple ear tips, active noise cancellation (ANC), and Spatial Audio compliment the fresh design on Beats Fit Pro…making these quite similar to Apple’s $249 AirPods Pro
- Beats Fit Pro are available to order now for $199 and being arriving on Friday, November 5
Our take: I remember seeing a report a while back that Apple was planning a major revamp for the Beats brand…something that a lot of us were skeptical of considering Apple’s ramped up efforts with AirPods. But over the past two years, we’ve seen the launch of four entirely new products from Beats: PowerBeats Pro in 2019, Beats Flex in 2020 and Beats Studio Buds and Beats Fit Pro in 2021. This isn’t to say I’ve been super impressed with these releases, but I like that the Beats brand is forging their own path alongside AirPods to fit different use cases and serve different customers.
