Plantronics BackBeat Fit Review

Anybody who listen to music during working out then Plantronics BackBeat Fit for you. Plantronics BackBeat Fit presents a superb feature set in a beautiful looking package. For outdoor runners, cyclists and gym freaks, the BackBeat FIT could be an excellent companion due to the wireless component.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit, may fall short of being excellent, but it’s better than most wireless sports headphones available on the market.¬†At 0.74¬†ounces, its light-weight and flexible sufficient to go unnoticed but detailed with a reflective finish for runners’ safety within the night time.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit Design

Plantronics BackBeat Fit is available in a dual-tone colour scheme: fluorescent blue and black or fluorescent green and black. The Fit follows the well-known around-the-head design that many sports headsets.

The accented headband is rubbery, with one side smooth and the opposite grainy. If it were not for the seemingly vulnerable plastic ear buds, the entire headset could be tossed around. The sturdy and flexible rubber lining is built for rough workouts. The band has a reflective surface, assuring security for runners at night time. Although the plastic band that matches over your ears and around your head appears heavy, but the 0.74-ounce headphones quite light.

Buttons on the outside of the left and right earpieces include Power, Audio and Volume Up and Call. Whereas the earphones are powered off, Bluetooth pairing can be set by holding down the Audio button till its bezel flashes red/blue.

The secured slot for the microUSB jack is properly placed in a hidden compartment on the rim of the right ear bud.

The full array of audio is beautiful and bursting with a full spectrum of sound for each track. This makes up for the shortage of a hard-hitting bass and a capped volume. Rock, pop and R&B sounded especially good.

However, you may still hear noise around you, that is a safety feature of the Fit. The se aren’t noise-canceling earphones.

Voice call quality is average, not extremely crystal clear, but audible sufficient to listen to your caller. The battery life of the Plantronics BackBeat Fit at 8 hours for music listening and standby time is rated at 14 days.
