If you prioritize sound quality and noise isolation for a variety of situations including air travel, the Beats Fit Pro is likely a better fit, plus they offer an adaptive sound feature and spatial audio support, but only with Apple devices. On the other hand, the Powerbeats Pro excel in comfort and are designed with secure ear hooks that may be better suited for intensive exercise, although they do not isolate noise as effectively. Both have similar audio quality, are optimized for both Android and Apple devices, and are sweatproof. The Powerbeats Pro have a longer battery life both on the earbuds and the case, but they are larger and less portable compared to the Beats Fit Pro. Give Feedback

Lili Katz | January 2024
"The Beats Fit Pro is just as easy to use with an Android device as it is with an iPhone. It seems Apple-owned Beats is trying to appeal to a wider market, and it works. The Fit Pro fits like a pro with the ear tip fit test and multiple ear tips. Sound quality is sure to please most athletes, but the Fit Pro is just at home in the office as it is in the gym. The main factor holding the Beats Fit Pro back from gold is the price."

"Sweat resistance, actual noise isolation, and a secure fit in your ears make these the true wireless earphones you want in Apple-land. Android users may find other options they like better, as these only support AAC."
