Plantronics BackBeat Go 2

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 stereo Bluetooth headset is a small but welcome upgrade to the previous BackBeat Go, and offers a great value despite its light bass output.

Useful design touches. Inexpensive, even with optional battery charging pouch. Solid midrange and high-end response.

Weak bass. Microphone picks up street noise.

Conclusion The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is a solid upgrade to the original BackBeat Go, with good sound quality and a slightly improved design. It only makes small changes and it still has weak bass, but considering it's $20 less than the original...

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 + Charging Case Black

 

Well, I'm happy to report that with the BackBeat Go 2 Plantronics has fixed most -- though not all -- of the small flaws found in the original, and indeed, it is easier to recommend at its $79.99 price point.

The lightweight, reasonably priced Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless stereo headset improves upon the Go 1, with better sound quality and a sweatproof design, The step-up BackBeat Go 2 + Charging Case includes a protective case that has a built-in...

Battery life isn't great (4.5 hours), so the inclusion of the Charging Case is an important extra.

The inclusion of a charging case as part of this bundle helps the excellent Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 overcome its one serious weakness: short battery life.

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 2 Wireless Earbuds Review

 

The $59 Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless earbuds are a strong value-priced option. They're light around your neck, with ear inserts that stay put during exercise, and they offer good overall sound quality. However, for $40 more, the Sol Republic...

Secure and comfortable ear inserts ; Audible battery-level notifications ; Inexpensive

Could have stronger bass ; Short battery life

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless earbuds are inexpensive music makers with good audio quality and a supersecure fit, but they could use longer battery life.

Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Bluetooth Headphones Review

 

The Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 ‘s pretty much have it all. They're durable enough to withstand sweat and the gym, and not having a hanging cord keeps your phone out of harms way. They're comfortable enough for every-day and all-day usage. Plus, best of...

Sound great, Charging case, Sweat resistant / water resistant, ControlTalk with Microphone, Comfortable, Durable, Affordable

Ear stabilizer could be better, Carrying case could be larger–requires finesse to get headphones in, Battery is only 4.5 hours

Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds

 

While small Bluetooth wireless speakers have appeared at a brisk pace over the last year, small Bluetooth headphones have been slower to evolve -- despite expectations that the category would surge forward after Bluetooth 4.0 chips became common. Based...

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless earbuds

 

Decent quality sound for a reasonable price, but we still long for better bass

Improved audio quality ; Inline controls provide much better tactility ; Charging case is a nice extra

Battery life could be better ; Lack of bass ; Fit won't suit all users

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 earbuds produce decent quality sound for a reasonable price and are a big improvement over the original model. However, we still long for improved battery life and better quality bass.
