There are a number of Bluetooth headphones on the market that promises a lot but none compare to the Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 that fits perfectly with gym, travel or your work lifestyle. The Backbeat is the ultimate headsets that definitely immerses you in the music. Once you put them over your ears turn up the volume, that’s it, you’re in a world of your own.
I got these headsets about a week ago and I find myself wearing them everywhere. The gym was by far the best place to use the headset. My gym’s got a horrible selection of music that they play over and over again and again. Being able to listen to my own music and not hear any of the nonsense is perfect. I can also take my calls without touching my iPhone and still running on the treadmill.
It takes up to approximately 3 hours to fully charge. It was fully charged straight out the box. Once I switched them on, the lovely female voice notified me that I had a full charge. The charging LED lights on the side of the headset also let me know how much charge I have remaining. A full charge provides up to 24 hours of listening time. If you want to hear the precise battery status all you need to do is hit the call button which is on the right ear.
The headphones have sensors built in so when you put on your headset you can resume paused music or answer incoming calls without hitting any button. Taking the headphones off will automatically pause the music. I love this feature. The memory foam earcups work great by creating comfort and blocking background noise.
I’ve got an iPhone and pairing it with the Backbeat Pro was extremely easy. the first time you power on the headphones, it’s in the pairing process. I had my iPhone paired in approximately a minute. The pairing process works just the same as you would pairing any Bluetooth devices to your phone. Plantronics have apps that you can download to get a better experience with your headphones.
The Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 in Graphite grey cost £249. I got mine from AO.com where you can purchase the headsets and many more tech and gadgets.
