Bought these to replace an earlier pair which I lost at the airport due to TSA hassling. It took losing them to fully realize how much I had come to like them. Mostly they are paired with my TomTom exercise watch. I primarily listen to podcasts but their sound is good enough to fully enjoy the music feature of the TomTom — and pairing them with my cell phone is no problem either. The battery life does seem to be 1-2 hours longer than the earlier ones but otherwise they seem identical — which is a good thing. (NB: I haven’t yet tried out the coaching feature.) It takes awhile to understand what the various buttons do — that could and SHOULD be much better documented — but after the initial learning curve they provide a good operational flexibility, though I still miss the fast forward and double time listening features that I had on the iPod Nano. Still, the ergonomics and sound quality are first rate. Considering that the price has come down considerably since the first pair I bought, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse.
These headphones are super easy to configure and use with your smart phone. They fit securely. They are loud, but not super loud. I wish Plantronics would make an easy extender for the ear buds so as to be able to increase the loudness for when you really want to rock out.
I bought my first version of these 2 years ago.
This is my second pair. When I lost my first, I looked around for another brand, thinking I could ‘upgrade.’
Love these earphones. They work very well, have good battery life and pair with no issues to devices. I also like the pearsports app. It’s like having a personal trainer with you to guide you through the workout. Keeps me motivated so I get the most out of my workouts.
This is the best thing I have ever bought!!! Works amazing battery is great doesn’t move when running or sprinting or anything else. Only con is that it fees a bit strange in the ear canal at first.
While they work perfectly, I was a little disappointed there was no case to keep them in. As much as these cost, there should come with some sort of carrying case.
Gift for my wife. She sweats profusely when working out and wanted something with good sound that could withstand the sweat. After trying many many headsets these fit the bill. I’m happy because she is happy.
The previous model of Backbeat FIT is much more comfortable and the controls are better.
Had these headphones for about a month now and the are amazing. They don’t move at all, can still hear my surroundings so I am safe, and I love how small they are
