Plantronics BackBeat Fit Boost Edition

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit Boost Edition headphones may carry an extra charge in their pouch, but are priced far too high for the audio experience they deliver.

Carrying pouch features rechargeable battery. Open design allows you to hear your surroundings. Waterproof.

Subpar audio performance. So-so mic intelligibility. Only ships with one pair of eartips.

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit Boost Edition earphones comes with a cool charging case, but the in-ear fit really kills the audio experience. You might be able to hear your surroundings, but it's at the cost of bass response. Throw in the fact that you...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit headphones are just about ideal for the gym, but not quite as suited for day-to-day use.

Rugged, sweat-proof design. Good audio performance. Secure fit doesn't block out external sounds. Includes an armband smartphone case

Uncomfortable after prolonged use. Weak bass

Many Bluetooth headphones tout themselves as being workout-friendly, but they usually try to find balance between good performance at the gym and good performance everywhere else. The Plantronics BackBeat Fit, on the other hand, is a purely...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit: Best in breed Bluetooth sports headphones

 

The $130 BackBeat Fit may not be perfect, but it's one of the best wireless sports headphones you can buy. It ships in April.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit is a lightweight wireless stereo headset (with integrated microphone) that features a sweatproof design and decent sound. It stays in your ears and most people should find it comfortable to wear. It also includes a reflective...

When you're running, the cord (around the back of your neck) does flop around a bit, which may bother some people. Would ideally cost closer to $100.

That Plantronics BackBeat Fit may not be perfect, but it's one of the best wireless sports headphones available.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit, which comes in blue or lime green, may fall short of being outstanding, but it is better than most wireless sports headphones on the market. Also, it's pretty well priced so long as you find some added value in the inclusion...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit review

 

Over the years I've tried a fair number of wireless Bluetooth sports headphones and I've yet to come across one that's truly outstanding. Whether it's their performance or design, each model, even the best ones, tend to have some sort of niggling issue...

Plantronics Backbeat FIT sports headset review

 

Plantronics is no strangers to Bluetooth headsets. Their lineup includes several wireless varieties, so the options within their offerings alone are impressive. Does their BackBeat FIT do the lineup justice, though? We go ears-on (on ears?) to find out...

For $129.99, you’re getting some great earbuds and an arm band for fitness use. If you were to buy these types of items separately, it would likely cost about as much (if not more), so consider that when you are looking to buy these. The arm band is...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit HEADPHONES

 

The Plantronics Backbeat Fit are above-average sports headphones but mediocre for more casual everyday use cases. They have a sturdy and flexible build quality and stable ear-hooks that will prevent them from falling, even during more strenuous...

Stable fit for sports. ; Lightweight and flexible.

Poor noise isolation, by design. ; Poor sound quality consistency. ; Bass and treble delivery varies significantly across users.

Plantronics BackBeat FIT Review

 

Even a dull, tedious exercise routine can be transformed into a pleasurable workout by turning some motivational music on. And you know what, Plantronics has just the thing – the BackBeat FIT stereo Bluetooth headphone set. It is sweat-resistant,...

Sweat-proof material ; Can accept calls easily ; Secure fitness-oriented ; Neoprene arm-band included in the box

Pricey ; Call quality leaves something to be desired ; Bass reproduction is almost non-existent

At $129, the Plantronics BackBeat FIT is a tough sell, and it doesn't help that the included neoprene armband is intended for use with Apple's iPhone 5s – nudging in a 4.5 to 5-inch Android device is often impossible. But the FIT has its niche with the...
