Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100

 

Plantronics' wire-free BackBeat Fit 3100 earphones feature an open earbud design that lets you easily hear your surroundings, at the expense of sound quality.

Rugged and waterproof. Strong mids and high-mids.

In-ear design results in almost nonexistent bass. Poor audio balance.

Bottom Line: Plantronics' wire-free BackBeat Fit 3100 earphones feature an open earbud design that lets you easily hear your surroundings, at the expense of sound quality.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 review: Excellent durability for athletes, plagued by connection problems and poor sound quality

 

Athletes will love the stay-put, lightweight, durable design, but connectivity problems and middling sound quality make these hard to recommend.

Offer great situational awareness ; Lightweight ; Water resistant

Difficulties pairing with audio source during testing confirmed by third-parites ; Limited audio controls ; No on-earphone Siri controls ; Charging case zipper could be of better quality

The BackBeat Fit 3100s are available online for $140. That's a bit high, considering how well the competition performs for just a few dollars more. If these were $110 or $120 I'd say pick them up for your workouts, but at the moment you're better off...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 review

 

A stiffer fit and tougher build, but at the expense of booming playback

Sweat and water-resistant ; Comfy fit ; Ideal for safety

No passive noise isolation ; Audio quality isn’t great ; No accessory replacements
