Apple shows grace: New headphones now with a German release date

So far, Apple has kept its German customers waiting, because in this country you can not yet buy the new "Beats Fit Pro". In the end, only the Americans and Chinese had this privilege. But now the manufacturer is showing mercy, the headphones are finally coming to us.

Update from January 12, 2021: Now there is finally a German release date for the new Beats Fit Pro. So far, the new Apple headphones (as a reminder, Beats has been part of the iPhone company for several years) could only be bought in the USA and China since the end of last year. This will change from January 24th, from then on Apple will accept pre-orders, and deliveries will then begin when sales actually start on January 28th (source: Beats via Twitter).

Officially, Apple charges 229.95 euros for headphones. They are available in different colors. The AirPods Pro from Apple are certainly an alternative. They don't have "wings" for hold, but they have a MagSafe-compatible charging case. Although they normally cost just under 280 euros, in the open market we only pay a little more than 200 euros (currently for example 205 euros, see on Amazon).

Original article:

Apple recently introduced new headphones with the 3rd generation AirPods, but the Beats subsidiary also has something new to offer. Kim Kardashian had already been caught with the Beats Fit Pro - a calculated PR measure, obviously. Now Apple is officially making the new earbuds and is disappointing international customers right away.

Apple introduces the new Beats Fit Pro: initially without a European start

The Beats Fit Pro will initially be available for US $ 199.99 in the US alone , and then in China at the beginning of December. The rest of the world won't get the headphones until the New Year (source: Beats). When exactly? As the owner of Beats, Apple is still keeping a low profile, probably also depends on the general supply situation - keyword: chip crisis. Accordingly, there is currently no price for the European market. According to the current exchange rate plus VAT, we would have to reckon with around 205 euros.

Speaking of chips: In contrast to the Beats Studio Buds presented earlier this year, Apple has given the Fit Pro an original Apple H1 chip . In addition to noise suppression (ANC), there is also support from Spatial Audio (marketed as 3D audio in Germany). The special thing about the new beats are the small wings for a better hold. Customers can also choose between different ear tips for an optimal fit. We can find out more about the design of the new headphones in the following video:

Furthermore, the Beats Fit Pro are certified according to IPX4, so they can also sweat and co. The small earbuds should run for 6 hours in one go, and there is still a "supply" of 21 hours waiting in the charging case, which makes a total runtime of 27 hours .

Apple wants to appeal to Android users

Good to know: In contrast to the AirPods, Apple also aggressively markets the Beats headphones to Android users. Extras are waiting for these customers, because the Beats app for Android gives them additional functions such as one-touch pairing, user-defined controls, battery status, firmware updates and a fit test. This helps to find the best sound and the best fit for your earphones.

At the same time as the introduction of the new headphones, Apple is taking several older models out of the range . As of now, the Powerbeats, Beats Solo and Beats EP are no longer available. Remaining stock in the free trade should of course still be found.
