Your Beats Fit Pro has three different audio modes that can be adjusted accordingly as per the user’s preference.

The audio modes include “Noise Cancellation”, “Transparency” and “OFF”.

The reasons why the noise cancellation is not working on the Beats could be related to a variety of different factors.

So, it’s best to check everything before the troubleshooting to learn more…

Here’s why the noise cancellation on your Beats Fit Pro is not working:

  • You’re wearing the incorrect-sized earbud tips.
  • Your noise cancellation feature is not enabled.
  • The noise cancellation is only “on” for one bud.
  • The Beats earbuds were not updated in a while.
  • There is a system-related issue with your Beats.

That’s it. There is nothing in addition that can prevent the noise cancellation from working if we exclude the possibility of a defective pair.

So let’s go ahead and address all the possibilities…

Beats Fit Pro Noise Cancelling Not Working – Quick Fix

Tip: We recommend following the steps and solutions in order!

1. Perform an Eartip Fit Test

The first and simplest step to attempt whenever the noise cancellation on your Beats Fit Pro is not working would be to perform an ear tip fit test.

The goal of this method is to determine whether the tips of your Beats Fit Pro are the correct and fitting size for your ears.

This is quite important because if the rubber tips of your earbuds are too small or larger than necessary for your ear, the noise cancellation won’t work properly.

Note: You will need the “Beats” app for iOS (App Store) or Android (Google Play Store).

Here’s how to perform an ear tip test on Android or iOS with the Beats app:

  • First, open the Beats app on your Android or iOS.
  • Tap on the hamburger menu to reveal the settings.
  • Then, locate and select the Beats Fit Pro earbuds.
  • Scroll down and locate the “Eartip Fit Test” option.
  • Select the option and follow all the on-screen steps.

The ear tip fit test will help you determine whether you’re using the correct silicone tip size and will provide you with the necessary suggestions. 

Note: Your Beats Fit Pro arrives with different tip sizes, so keep reading to learn more!

2. Equip Different Size Tips

Your Beats Fit Pro buds come with small, medium, and large silicone tips, that can be replaced easily by pulling them out and inserting a different size.

So, after the ear tip fit test, you will know the best match for your ear, so we recommend equipping different size tips and trying the mode.

To replace the silicone tips of your Beats Fit Pro earbuds, you must be gentle when pulling them out to prevent ripping them apart.

Additionally, when fitting the new tips, you must verify that no debris, hair, or other particles will get behind the tips and obstruct the inner speaker of the buds.

Tip: Test the noise cancellation of your Beats Fit Pro with all three different silicone tip sizes!

3. Update your Beats Fit Pro

As per numerous discussions online about the noise cancellation feature on Beats Fit Pro, a big portion of users with the same issue as you, claim that firmware update is the solution.

Thus, we recommend updating your Beats Fit Pro to the latest version, in which, this issue does not exist.

  4. Connect the charging case to an electrical socket.
  5. Verify that the Beats Fit Pro earbuds are charging.

When all the conditions are fulfilled (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Charging), your Beats Fit Pro should start updating automatically.

There is one important thing, which is the firmware version of your device (iPhone, iMac, or MacBook), which should be up to date for your Beats Fit Pro to update.

Note: You can check the firmware version build of your Beats through the Bluetooth settings by pressing the “i” icon and going to the “About” tab.

If your Beats Fit Pro is paired with an iOS device, you should know that the noise cancellation option can be managed through the settings.

The options also provide the opportunity to switch between the three different audio modes on each bud separately, so it’s quite essential to check.

Here’s how to adjust the noise cancellation on iOS devices:

  1. First, tap the “Settings” app to enter the options.
  2. Then, enter within the “Bluetooth” menu section.
  3. Locate the connection of your Beats Fit Pro buds.

  7. Ensure that the “Noise Cancellation” is enabled.
  8. Next, go to the “PRESS AND HOLD” options tab.
  9. In there select the Left and then the Right earbud.
  10. Separately, select “Noise Cancellation” for both.

This should guarantee that the Noise Cancellation is actively working and turned “ON” on both your earbuds, so play some music to test.

Try enabling and disabling the mode to check if there is a difference, which may show if there is an improvement.

Quick Tip: Turn on a TV or any background audio to test whether the noise cancellation has now improved or if it's still not working.

  3. Push and hold the “System” button for 15 seconds.
