Beats is a well-known company that produces attractive and comfy headphones and earbuds. While they were once known for their overly bass-heavy sound characteristics, their current models are surprisingly well-balanced. Here are some of the best products from Beats:
Beats Fit Pro
Beats Fit Pro supports Spatial Audio as well as dynamic head tracking for immersive music, movies, and gaming. These earbuds come with comfortable and secure-fit wingtips that bend to fit your ear and three soft silicone ear tip sizes, making it simple to get the correct fit. Furthermore, they have Active Noise Cancelling and Transparency functions, just like other popular earbuds. These earbuds deliver up to 6 hours of listening time and an extra 18 hours of charge time thanks to their pocket-sized charging case.
The Powerbeats Pro earphones include an ear-hook design that keeps them stable and secure, whether you are running or working out. They’re well-made, comfortable, and water-resistant to IPX4. They also have an H1 chip, which allows them to be easily connected with other Apple products. Their very neutral sound profile also lends itself nicely to a broad variety of audio files. They give around 11 hours of continuous battery life, and their cases offer approximately one additional charge, which is handy in an emergency.
Beats Studio Buds
Beats Studio Buds are engineered with a totally tuned acoustic platform to produce powerful, balanced sound in a compact design. You can block unwanted external noise with the Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) feature, or you can switch to Transparency mode when you need to hear the world around you. These earbuds provide an 8-hour listening capacity with two extra charges given by a pocket-sized charging case, for a total of 24 hours of playback.

- Make sure that the two gadgets are within easy reach of one another.

Do you only hear sounds in one ear? Check to see whether both sides are charging. This issue frequently happens when the contacts are not correctly positioned within the casing.

To reset Beats Fir Pro and Powerbeats Pro, put both earbuds in the case, and hold the Bluetooth or power button until the light flashes.
