Design and Build quality
Being one of the best wireless headphones the Plantronics Backbeat has one of the most comfortable designs and excellent build quality. You can feel they are good quality headphones from the comfort and the fit is excellent as well.
The headphones are made up of a really comfortable material which is ideal for working out. They are designed in such a way that you would be able to hear the sounds from the surroundings and would not be completely isolated from what is happening around.
The Plantronics Backbeat Fit headphones have a really great design and pretty amazing fit, these headphones are light and really comfortable making them one of the best headphones under $100.
The headphones have a really great sound quality and it has the perfect bass to give you that extra oomph you need in your workout sessions. I think these headphones are value for money when you look at the sound quality aspect of it.
The headphones do let sound from the outside seep in, so the noise cancellation on these headphones is not that great after all. These headphones are perfect for running and cycling which are activities that appreciate the NO noise cancellation features on these headphones.
The overall sound quality on these headphones is pretty great and impressive for the given price range. I think for the price Plantronics offers them, these headphones are the best. They do offer a pretty good price/feature balance which would be more evident from the other features that we would mention below in the rest of the review.
These headphones are water and sweat resistant. They are pretty durable and if taken care, they could last for a couple of years as well. Many customers have been pretty satisfied with its durability and how well it works even after a long term usage.
The headphones have a mic so you can even take up calls on them without any trouble and the headphones are designed to give you a much more stable experience during your workout sessions. In order to increase the durability of these headphones, it is necessary that you look after the maintenance and upkeep rather than just throwing it around after using them.
Trust me, once you start keeping them in a dust bag or a case, you would be able to see that their life automatically increases. Headphones which are thrown around and not taken care of usually get spoiled due to loose wire connection.
These headphones are pretty comfortable and they fit tremendously well. They do not fall off even if you jump while wearing them and that is something which makes your entire workout session smooth. They are comfortable and would easily fit according to your comfort level.
They even have bright reflective colors in the case you plan to go out for a run or a jog in the night time then it is much safer because of the headphones being colored in bright reflective colors. The headphones are simple and really comfortable to wear. They fit in my ears perfectly and I think that is one of the best features about them that I liked a lot. I had these headphones but now I have switched over to the JLAB Audio Epic 2.
These headphones last for about a good 8 hours and I must admit that it has an above average battery life and would last really long. The charger comes included in the box and a 15 minute of charge should give you a good enough battery life for one workout session. This is pretty impressive about these headphones because it has happened many times that I have forgotten to charge my headphones and then skipped gym saying to myself that there is no charge in the headphones and without music gym gets boring.
With these headphones, even if you forget to charge them, you could just plug it in for 15 minutes anywhere and by anywhere I mean you could even charge it in your gym and then start using it after 15 minutes of charging.
These are one of the best headphones under $100 and you should surely check out the amazon reviews. If you are out for buying a sports Bluetooth headphone then I do not see a reason why you should ignore this one.
The Plantronics Backbeat headphones are pretty impressive and you should purchase it if your price range matches the headphone’s price. The headphones have a pretty amazing sound quality along with battery life giving it two best combinations that one would look for in a Bluetooth headphones.
If you are looking for great quality Bluetooth headphones under $100 then the Plantronics Backbeat is the best choice and you would not regret buying these headphones. It is comfortable while working out and can last really long with minimum maintenance. It would really pay off for the money you invest in it and hence if you are planning to go for this pair of headphones then I suggest you should go for it!
