Plantronics BackBeat 500 raises the bar for cheap on-ear Bluetooth headphones

 

Plantronics is trying to attract younger users with its $80 BackBeat 500 Series, an affordable, stylish on-ear model that performs well for the money.

Plantronics BackBeat 500

 

The Plantronics BackBeat 500 offer surprisingly good audio quality for sub-$100 Bluetooth headphones.

Affordable. Crisp high-mids and highs with full low-mids. Comfortable. Includes carrying pouch and 3.5mm cable for passive listening.

Sub-bass response could be stronger.

The Plantronics BackBeat 500 headphones are impressive for $80. They don't boast the style of the BackBeat Sense or the noise cancellation of the BackBeat PRO 2, but they're less than half the price of either pair and deliver clean, full sound with a...
