Beats drops three new colors for the Fit Pro, including a eyeball-searing yellow

The Beats Fit Pro, an excellent set of noise-canceling wireless earbuds, now come in three new color options: Coral Pink, Volt Yellow, and Tidal Blue. They’ll be available from Beats, Apple, and various retailers starting February 23 for the same $200 price as other Beats Fit Pro colors.

Unlike its parent company, Apple, which has never strayed from its iconic white color for the AirPods family of wireless earbuds, Beats is no stranger to colorful variations on its products. The brand has a long track record of releasing special limited-edition collaborations with artists, athletes, and brands, some of which have been anything but ordinary when comes to color.

The Fit Pro were launched in 2021 in four colors: black, white, gray, and pink. In 2022, those options were joined by three special-edition colors developed in conjunction with Kim Kardashian and designed to blend rather than stand out: Moon, Dune, and Earth.

In keeping with the Beats tradition of launching new products and colors with celebrities, the three newest Beats Fit Pro colors are being promoted with the help of singer, songwriter, and actress Chlöe Bailey and American tennis player Frances Tiafoe.

The Beats Fit Pro are immediately recognizable because of their curved, integrated ear wingtips, which help to anchor the earbuds in place. This makes them a good alternative to the company’s Powerbeats Pro, which use an around-the-ear earhook design. The Fit Pro also leverage many of the technologies that Apple has been adding to the AirPods family, like active noise cancellation, hands-free Siri, and head-tracking spatial audio.

NuraTrue Pro hands-on review: A sneak peek at the lossless future of wireless audio
NuraTrue Pro earbuds held in hand.

Nura — the Australian company behind the innovative Nuraphone headphones, which measure your ears' unique architecture in order to customize the sound — is working on new first-of-its-kind tech for its upcoming NuraTrue Pro wireless earbuds. The new buds debut today as a Kickstarter campaign. The company says the NuraTrue Pro will be the first wireless audio device (headphones or earbuds) to use Qualcomm’s aptX Lossless codec, the first codec to promise true CD-quality audio over a Bluetooth connection.

Digital Trends was offered an advanced look at the NuraTrue Pro. And while not all of the puzzle pieces are in place just yet, the picture that is coming together looks very promising. Here’s a taste of what’s to come.
Why go lossless?

Creative’s Outlier Pro ANC earbuds have massive battery life
Man wearing Creative Outlier Pro ANC earbuds.

If you need a set of wireless earbuds that can last through an entire workday (and then some) without needing to be recharged, Creative's new $90 Outlier Pro might just fit the bill. With active noise cancellation (ANC), good water resistance, and the ability to run for up to 15 hours before you pop them back in their charging case, they've got more stamina than almost any other earbuds you can buy. They're available starting April 4, 2022, from the Creative online store.

At $90, the Outlier Pro are indeed outliers when it comes to battery life. Creative claims you'll get 10 hours per charge when using ANC, and up to 15 hours when you turn that feature off. When you include the capacity of their charging case, those numbers jump to 40 and 60 hours, respectively. To put that in context, to get a set of wireless earbuds with comparable stamina, you're looking at spending considerably more, with the $149 Audio-Technica ATH-CKS50TW (20 hours ANC off/50 hours total), or the $150 JVC HA-XC90T (15 hours/45 total). Plus, the Outlier Pro offer wireless charging, which is something neither Audio-Technica nor JVC include.
