Altec Lansing Backbeat (Black/Gold)


The Altec Lansing BackBeat Plus 206 earphones offer a comfortable fit; impressive sound for the money; and a durable, cloth-covered cord.

When the BackBeat Plus 206's cloth cord rubs against your clothing, you can sometimes hear that rubbing sound if your MP3 player is set to low volumes or during the silence between songs; no carrying case is included.

Although Altec Lansing's BackBeat Plus 206 earbuds may be a slight step down from the BackBeat 326 earphones, they offer very good sound for the money.

"ditto on cords rubbing -annoying...but otherwise good"


Great phones...good price...terrible cords that transmit sound to earphones.

Great Sound, good price point for iPhone mic and contro. Fit is good for me too.

DUH ... The rubbing cords that transmit sound to the ear pieces. Come on guys..who let that pass?

"Great sound quality at good price."


great headphones at a good price, huge improvement over skullcandy's in the same price range.

Great sound that's engineered by Ultimate Ears.

When the cord rubs against clothes at low volume, you can hear it.

"I'd rather use the Headphones that came with my ipod"


I bought these earbuds last night to hold me over until Eytomtic could replace my Ety ER4's under warranty. I know that Ety ER4's are in a completely different class, but for $50 I expected headphones that were halfway decent.

The only good thing about these headphones is that the headphone jack fits into an EDGE IPhone without an adapater.

Muddled base, undefined highs and unimpressive mids hiding underneath all of that...

"better than standard headphones"


good full sound

the plastic in the earpieces is too large and can cause some discomfort
