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...

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.

These things suck!

 

Don't buy them.

They're great if you only need them for a few uses

These things suck! but can't link with anything! No harsh abuse either...I'm pretty rough with my devices but took extra care of these. Thought they would last a lot longer, very disappointed

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...

Very good for music

 

I bought this bluetooth headset to make my life easier while I\'m driving. It worked very good for music connected to my Iphone 3GS but for incoming and outgoing calls the volume is very low. I drive a diesel truck and I could barely hear the person on...

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
