The Beats Fit Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) aren’t just one of the best fitness buds for Apple users, they’re also one of the best everyday buds. They have squishy ear tips and cute wings (which can be a little big for little ears, unfortunately). They have an Apple H1 chip and pair seamlessly with Apple products, but they also have a great app for Android that includes one-touch pairing, custom controls, and a friendly test.
The noise cancellation works very well and you can click the physical button on the buds to pause and let the ambient sound in. The sound signature is impressively sculpted, according to WIRED associate editor Parker Hall, which means you can enjoy music from all genres. Movies mixed in Dolby Atmos; And Get the best zoom calls. Best of all, unlike our other picks, they come in an eye-catching purple color like Signature Bits (now they also come in coral, pink, and blue). I also wholeheartedly recommend Beats’ earlier, and now cheaper, Powerbeats workout buds; They work reliably after years of heavy use.
★ Apple’s alternative: Hey you should They have Apple-branded buds, go for the AirPods Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends). They’re IPX4-rated so they’re sweat-resistant, and sound quality, fit and battery life have improved over the years. I especially like that they now have speakers, so you can ping them when you lose them on your desk or under the couch. However, I didn’t find it as secure as any other Beats headphones.
