Plantronics BackBeat Go Review - Almost the Perfect Bluetooth Earbuds

 

A few months ago at the Samsung Galaxy S 3 announcement event, I noticed another mobile editor wearing a pair of Bluetooth earbuds that were unlike any other I had previously seen. For a while now, if you wanted to use Bluetooth A2DP to listen to...

Plantronics BackBeat Go

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Go is a comfortable, extremely unobtrusive, wireless stereo Bluetooth earphone set that works equally well for voice calls and music.

Comfortable. Lightweight. Excellent voice quality and noise suppression in both directions. Tangle-free cord really works. Clear midrange and high-end when listening to music

Ultra-soft earbud tips make it difficult to get the right fit. Some cable thump when walking. Thin bass response

Plantronics offers MyHeadset, an Android app that adds a battery headset meter when connected to Android 3.0 (Honeycomb) tablets or Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)-powered phones. The BackBeat Go also added one automatically to the iPhone 4 I tested...

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 Review

 

Always a trailblazer in the space, Plantronics is hoping that its updated pair, the BackBeat Go 2, will be the go-to companion for hardcore fitness individuals all around. At first glance, it looks very much like any pair of wired headphones, but it...

Compact design ; Superior audio quality ; Inexpensive

Disappointing call quality ; Short battery life ; Minimal software features

Granted that it falls flat in the call quality department, and its battery life is short, the base $79.99 cost of the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is something we can’t overlook. Certainly it’s a tally that we find super inviting since it’s affordable,...

Plantronics BackBeat GO

 

The BackBeat GO from Plantronics is simple and moldable, designed with a cord that stays out of your way whether you are working in the yard or working out. If you want to switch between devices, you need to re-pair the earbuds each time you switch. We...

Digital signal processing isolates noise and keeps the sound crisp and clean, even during phone calls

These earbuds can only be paired with one device at a time, and they don't recognize devices you've already paired them with

These earbuds pair well with almost any device and give you clear, distinct sound on both music and calls.

BackBeat Go

 

While they may not impress when it comes to top-end audio quality, the Plantronics BackBeat Go wireless in-ear headphones offer plenty of convenience. The sound produced isn't the loudest and bass lacks punch but the real impressive feature here is the...

Sit conveniently around your neck Easy to set up and use Decent battery life

Not the loudest volume Bass lacks punch No multipoint Bluetooth

Plantronics BackBeat Go review

 

A stereo Bluetooth headset for users who prefer a more svelte setup

Comfortable ; Great call quality ; Easy to use

Bass response is lacking ; Volume is too low on certain devices

Expert review by:

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2

 

While its short battery life keeps it from true greatness, the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is a superior wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphone.

Lightweight ; Reasonable price ; Sweat-proof design

Battery life isn't great ; No charging case included

Plantronics BackBeat Go

 

The BackBeat Go headphone set is fine for use as a hands-free accessory, but we can't recommend it for music playback over cheaper, wired alternatives.

Convenient wireless design ; Easy to use ; Audio is fine for calls

Sound over Bluetooth is too flat for multimedia

The problem lies in its lack of flexibility. We accept that Plantronics is stuck with the audio limitations of Bluetooth, but it doesn't offer an alternative for those of us who want convenience sometimes, and awesome sound at other times. A wired...
