Plantronics BackBeat Fit: Best in breed Bluetooth sports headphones

 

The $130 BackBeat Fit may not be perfect, but it's one of the best wireless sports headphones you can buy. It ships in April.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit is a lightweight wireless stereo headset (with integrated microphone) that features a sweatproof design and decent sound. It stays in your ears and most people should find it comfortable to wear. It also includes a reflective...

When you're running, the cord (around the back of your neck) does flop around a bit, which may bother some people. Would ideally cost closer to $100.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 6100

 

If you like deep bass and over-ear headphones for exercise, the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 6100 are worth your consideration.

Powerful bass-forward audio performance. Easy-to-operate touch controls. Water-resistant design. Secure fit.

Faint mic signal. EQ presets are pretty extreme.

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit 6100 headphones deliver a very bass-forward experience for those who prefer over-ears to in-ears for exercise. Anyone seeking an accurate sound signature will want to look elsewhere, as the default mode is bass-forward, and...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit Boost Edition

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit Boost Edition headphones may carry an extra charge in their pouch, but are priced far too high for the audio experience they deliver.

Carrying pouch features rechargeable battery. Open design allows you to hear your surroundings. Waterproof.

Subpar audio performance. So-so mic intelligibility. Only ships with one pair of eartips.

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit Boost Edition earphones comes with a cool charging case, but the in-ear fit really kills the audio experience. You might be able to hear your surroundings, but it's at the cost of bass response. Throw in the fact that you...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Fit headphones are just about ideal for the gym, but not quite as suited for day-to-day use.

Rugged, sweat-proof design. Good audio performance. Secure fit doesn't block out external sounds. Includes an armband smartphone case

Uncomfortable after prolonged use. Weak bass

Many Bluetooth headphones tout themselves as being workout-friendly, but they usually try to find balance between good performance at the gym and good performance everywhere else. The Plantronics BackBeat Fit, on the other hand, is a purely...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit review

 

Over the years I've tried a fair number of wireless Bluetooth sports headphones and I've yet to come across one that's truly outstanding. Whether it's their performance or design, each model, even the best ones, tend to have some sort of niggling issue...

Plantronics BackBeat Fit ( Green)

 

Plantronics BackBeat Fit, which comes in blue or lime green, may fall short of being outstanding, but it is better than most wireless sports headphones on the market. Also, it's pretty well priced so long as you find some added value in the inclusion...
