Plantronics Backbeat Go Bluetooth Headset ( Black)

 

That's a challenge Plantronics has endeavored to overcome with its $99.99 BackBeat Go wireless stereo headset, one of the smallest and lightest stereo Bluetooth headsets out there, which features two slightly oversize earbuds joined by a flat,...

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.

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

Plantronics Backbeat Go Bluetooth Headset (Black) review

 

It's hard to design really small wireless Bluetooth earphones because you have to cram a battery and some extra electronics into a compact housing the size of something that's not much bigger than, well, an earbud.

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
