I insist on wearing headphones everywhere I go. I can't take my morning walks, run errands or board a plane without my buds playing my favorite podcast or the same five songs I listen to daily.
Because my earbuds get so much wear, I decided years ago to invest in a quality pair: the AirPods Pro. Because I already had (and loved) a lot of Apple products, I felt they were well worth the price tag.
A few months ago, I accidentally stepped on my pair and they haven't been the same since. Every so often, I'll hear a loud static sound in the left earbud. Don't even talk to me about constantly forcing them back into my ear. It's an uphill battle wondering how long it will take until I have to readjust them for the 187th time that day.
I love my AirPods, but I knew it was time to purchase a backup pair: the Beats Fit Pro, a visually stunning set of headphones that can do everything the AirPods Pro can, but (in my opinion) slightly better. And right now, they're on sale at Amazon for $180. If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll also score free shipping. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
I've had the Beats for about a month and it's safe to say that they've become my preferred gadget of choice. Read on to see why.
Small but mighty, they check all the boxes. Right off the bat, the secure-tip wingtips had my heart — they make the buds so comfortable, I often forget I'm wearing them. Because audio sounds different depending on if you're watching a movie or listening to a book, the Beats Fit Pro come equipped with three distinct listening modes: Active Noise Cancelling, Transparency Mode and Adaptive EQ. Become immersed in the latest release or listen to your faves with minimal interaction? It's your choice.
Other reasons I love them: They boast up to six hours of listening time (up to 24 hours when sitting in their pocket-sized charging case) and feature on-device controls to quickly toggle between play, pause and fast forward. Last but certainly not least, they allow you to audio share with fellow Beats or AirPods owners.
You have a choice of four colors: black, white, green/grey and the pair I own, purple.
Whether you're casually searching for an alternative pair like I was or looking to make a big purchase, check out the Beats Fit Pro and thank me later.

Katie Holmes is notoriously private, especially when it comes to her love life, but she's slowly stepping out with her new boyfriend, Broadway musician Bobby Wooten III. The "CODA" star was first spotted taking a romantic New York City stroll with her new beau in April before the pair made their red carpet debut at the Moth Ball's 25th anniversary gala the following month. Most recently, the pair attended the Tribeca Film Festival, which premiered Holmes's new movie, "Alone Together." Prior to Holmes's most recent relationship, the actor and mother of 16-year-old Suri Cruise, her daughter whom she shares with Tom Cruise, has been linked to a handful of her former costars (including Alexander Skarsgård and Josh Hartnett), but only a few have actually confirmed romantic ties.
