Not solely are the Beats Fit Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends) among the best exercise buds for Apple customers, they’re among the best on a regular basis buds, interval. They have squishy ear ideas and stylish fins (which may be a little bit massive for smaller ears, sadly). They have the Apple H1 chip and pair seamlessly with Apple merchandise, however additionally they have an excellent app for Android that features one-touch pairing, personalized controls, and a match take a look at.
The noise-canceling works extraordinarily effectively, and you’ll click on on a bodily button on the buds to pause and let ambient noise in. The sound signature is remarkably sculptured, in line with WIRED affiliate editor Parker Hall, which means you possibly can get pleasure from music in all genres, motion pictures combined in Dolby Atmos, and get great-sounding Zoom calls. Most necessary, not like a lot of our different picks, they arrive in a signature Beats-style eye-catching purple (they now additionally are available coral, pink, and blue). I additionally wholeheartedly advocate Beats’ earlier, and now cheaper, Powerbeats exercise buds; they work reliably after years of heavy use.
★ Apple Alternative: If you should have Apple-branded buds, go for the AirPods Pro (9/10, WIRED Recommends). They are IPX4-rated so that they’re sweat-resistant, and the sound high quality, match, and battery life have all improved through the years. I particularly like that they now have a speaker, so you possibly can ping them once you’ve misplaced them at your desk or below the sofa. However, I nonetheless do not discover the match as safe as any of the Beats headphones.
