Audio Transitions in Final Cut Pro are a necessity when you need to create a smooth audible change in your project.  If you don't use them, the audio changes are really noticeable and sometimes create "pops" in your audio; using an Audio Transition simply smooths out the change from one audio clip to the next.  The easiest way to do this is to apply a cross fade to the edit point.  Final Cut Pro has two audio transitions: +3 dB cross fade, which is the default, and 0 dB cross fade.  Each cross fade results in a different audio level change as the transition plays.  You basically need to try out both to see which transition better suits your audio change.

To apply an Audio Transition, you can go to the Effects Tab in your Browser window to Audio Transitions.  Twirl down the disclosure triangle to see the 2 types of Cross Fade.  Simply drag the one you want to use down into your timeline right on top of your edit point.

An even easier way to apply an Audio Transition is by right-clicking on the edit point in your audio track where you want to place your transition, and click on Add Transition Cross Fade; much easier.
