Plantronics Backbeat 906 review

 

The sleek Plantronics Backbeat 906 is a replica of the Altec Lansing Backbeat 906 which was launched a year ago. It is just the rebadged version of the Altec Lansing Backbeat 906 by Plantronics (which is the parent company of Altec Lansing) as it...

The Plantronics Backbeat 906 is a good Bluetooth stereo headset that has nice set of features, good design and performed satisfactorily as a handsfree device. However, its steep price tag and middling performance as a music headphones make it just...

Plantronics Backbeat 906

 

Ergonomically designed stereo bluetooth headset from Plantronics that works with your cell phones, MP3 players and your laptops.

Call sound quality is good ; Comfortable headband design ; Foldable design great for portability ; Works with non-bluetooth enabled device ; Good battery life

Not the best control placement ; Music sound quality is average ; Expensive

Well designed Bluetooth stereo headset that works not only with cell phones but also for non-bluetooth devices, thanks to its Bluetooth adapter. It has very good call sound quality but not so much when it comes to music.

Nice headset

 

These headphones work well for what they are. They last a good amount of time and sound like what they are. These are not audiophile grade, but they get the job done if all you want to do is listen to some background music. The only problem I have...

Surround sound!

 

Add on adapter is well worth the extra, you can use these on any device.

I've had these for 5 months now and I LOVE them. Best sound quality available today, sounds like the whole room is filled with sound. Nuances of songs I've never heard with any other headphones. Adjustable for almost any head,(little extensions come...

Volume control is a little delicate, but I treat them gently, kinda hard to put on, but once there, they stay and are comfortable

Awesome

 

Since these can from PA and shipping sucked bad, it didn't even come in a box, its more like a paper bag from HEB glued together. I mean i bought this a memory card, the card came in 2 days while this headphones came in 1 week :{.. these can get real...

With my Sprint EVO it works great i can walk around the room and still hear the music no cut offs or skips. I run and jump with them at the gym they dont move at all ; I also use for Raiding (WOW) or talking smack (black ops)

When using it around my apartment everyone has a wireless device that might cause some skipping. Fiting can be tiresome but soon it will be fit like a glove

Great Headset but definitely not Sweat resistant

 

What I liked the best:1. Light weight, doesnt bother your ear even after wearing it continuously for more than 3 hrs.2. Quick pairing - No issues with pairing with any device.3. Sound quality - is far better than Motorola HD -S9 or Nokia brand...

Backbeat 906

 

I like the Backbeat 906 for 3 reasons:1. The flexible wire behind the neck. I used the motorola s9 prior and the hard plastic behind the neck feature caused problems with some workouts like bench press etc....2. The adaptor. I use the adaptor when I...
