Plantronics BackBeat Go Bluetooth stereo headset: Full review

 

There's a lot to like about the BackBeat Go wireless stereo headset, but some notable shortcomings temper our enthusiasm.

The Plantronics BackBeat Go is a compact wireless stereo headset that sounds decent, is attractively designed, and is reasonably priced

Battery life isn't great (4.5 hours); buttons on the inline remote are small; and the LED that indicates when the device is on or in pairing mode is tiny

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...

Lightweight design makes it easily portable, additional tips are included from larger to smaller, crisp call quality, pairing is super easy, makes a great first Bluetooth stereo headset for those new to this type of technology

Music playback quality is decent, but not amazing – exhibited highs, but the low end is lacking

Review: Plantronics BackBeat GO wireless earbuds

 

Going wireless usually involves some level of compromise and with Bluetooth earphones like anything else, it's a question of whether the benefits outweigh the disadvantages. Does the convenience of cutting the cord trump the potential downside of a...

Then there's the US$100 price. You can go out and spend a lot more on high-end earphones and you'll certainly end up with better sound quality, or you can buy a cheaper wired set that will equal the Backbeat GO's audio performance. But that's not the...

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.
