Beats Fit Pro Hidden Features Explained
To help you maneuver your way easily around the Beats Fit Pro wireless earbuds, we have explained what the smart features are for and how you can use them.
1. Ear Tip Fit Test
This feature is designed to you find the best fit of the 3 available ear tips (S, M, and L) for your ears, to augment sound quality and comfort. If you’re an iPhone user, go to your earbuds’ Bluetooth settings, tap the “more info i” icon there, and complete the test. If you’re Team Android, you can get it done on the Beats app after pairing it with your Fits Pro.
To perform the Ear Tip Fit Test, the earbuds should be properly inserted into your ears. During the test, you should hear a series of tones through the earbuds. The earbuds use built-in microphones to measure the sound levels in each ear.
Based on the results of the test, Fits Pro will recommend which of the included ear tips is the best fit for each of your ears. Overall, this Ear Tip Fit Test will help you find a comfortable fit that can improve sound quality and secure the earbuds from falling out during use.
2. “Find My” Fit Pro
This feature is often underappreciated until the Fits Pro gets lost or misplaced. The “Find My Beats Fit Pro” feature lets searching for your tiny earbuds become easy. Fair enough, the feature is available for both Android and iOS devices.
The Find My app on your iPhone will let show you the last known location of your wireless earbuds, even if the battery is dead. You can also use the map and other tools to locate your earbuds.
Android users, however, have to use the Beats app — just search for Locate my Beats, tap it and the last known location will show up.
3. Simple Toggle between ANC, Transparency Mode, and Spatial Audio.
For clarity’s sake, let’s go through each. ANC – meaning Active Noise Cancellation – is a feature that helps reduce background and surrounding noises. Transparency Mode, once turned on, lets outside sound in, so you can hear what’s going on around you. Spatial Audio enables you to hear audio in 3D, giving you that theatre experience.
The fun thing about these three features on the Beats Fit Pro is that you can switch them easily with a toggle. On your iPhone’s Control Center, you can long press on the volume slider, and the button to toggle to Transparency Mode or tune back out with Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) would show up. From there, you can also activate Spatial Audio if the playing audio supports it.
Team Android again has it all on the Beats app, and it’s super easy!
4. One-Touch Pairing
It’s just amazing how the Beats Fit Pro seamlessly pairs with all of your iCloud-linked devices immediately after it’s out of its case.
Not only that, it lets you automatically switch between these devices, say your iPhone or MacBook, easily. But if you’re an Android user, launch the Beats app, and connect with the Beats Fit Pro via Bluetooth.
5. Customize Control
This feature gives it all to you in terms of flexibility. For instance, you can customize what pressing and holding on the Beat Fit pro earbud does. You can choose to use it as a volume control – say left earbud to reduce volume, right to increase.
If you don’t like that, you can use it to activate Siri or even toggle on ANC. To customize, go to Settings > Bluetooth > Beats Fit Pro > Press and Hold.
6. Headphone Accommodation
Beats Fit Pro Accommodation feature allows you to amplify vocal clarity and even adjust specific frequencies to suit your preference.
To access this feature on your iOS device, Search “Headphones Accommodation” in Settings. Should you want to customize audio for movies and calls so you can hear more audio detail, tap “Custom Audio Setup.”
7. Automatic Ear Detection
Your Beats Fit Pro can sense (using skin sensors) when they’re in your ear and receive the audio from your device. Beats Fit Pro also pauses and resumes playback when you remove one of your earbuds. When you remove both, it will stop playback —and won’t resume.
Note that audio will play through your device’s speakers when you’re not wearing your earbuds, and you have Automatic Ear Detection turned on.
When you turn off Automatic Ear Detection, audio will to your connected Beats Fit Pro whether or not you’re wearing them. To turn it off, go to Settings > Bluetooth > More Info button next to your Beats Fit Pro > Automatic Ear Detection.
