The Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds could be imminent
It seems like the AirPods 3 aren’t the only pair of wireless earbuds Apple is set to launch this year, as the rumored Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds may not be too far behind.
And with the eventual existence of the AirPods Pro 2 still up in the air (we heard nothing of them during the October 18 Apple Unleashed event), we’re now looking towards Apple’s Beats lineup that could well launch sometime in November.
Here’s everything we know so far about the Beats Fit Pro, including price, release date, rumors, as well as what we’d love to see.
While we’re certainly expecting an AirPods Pro follow-up in the near future, especially after this recent price leak, fans looking to buy a potentially cheaper pair of noise-cancelling wireless earbuds before then will likely want to read on about the Beats Fit Pro.
Beats Fit Pro price and release date
A recent report by 9to5Mac suggests that the Beats Fit Pro will be announced in the first week of November, likely between November 1 – 5, and shipments will follow soon after, meaning we should be able to get our hands on these new (as of yet unofficially announced) wireless earbuds fairly soon.
In terms of price, there’s nothing set in stone for the Beats Fit Pro just yet. However, we expect they will land in the price range of their predecessors, the Beats Studio Buds, at $149.99 / £129.99 / AU$199.95 – or perhaps just over that sum given the reported inclusion of Apple’s advanced H1 chip.
Beats Fit Pro rumors and details
Apple’s H1 chip included
According to the 9to5Mac exclusive report linked above, the Beats Fit Pro will be powered by Apple’s H1 chip, which would allow for voice assistant integration with Siri, faster pairing with devices and – best of all – better active noise cancellation, which would certainly be a boon after the Beats Studio Buds’ middling effort with the feature. Battery life
The Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds are said to pack six hours of battery life with active noise cancellation (ANC) enabled, which stretches to seven hours if you opt to enable Adaptive EQ instead. Combined with the charging case, the Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds will apparently deliver between 27 and 30 hours of battery life. That’s roughly the same as the AirPods 3 and about standard for the best wireless earbuds you can buy.
