Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 review

 

The BackBeat Go 2 headphones look very similar to the original model, featuring the same two earbuds connected by a single, flat wire with an in-line microphone and music playback controls. The flat wire doesn't tangle and is designed to sit around the...

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 earbuds produce decent quality sound for a reasonable price and are a big improvement over the original model. However, we still long for improved battery life and better quality bass.

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 stereo Bluetooth headset is a small but welcome upgrade to the previous BackBeat Go, and offers a great value despite its light bass output.

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is a solid upgrade to the original BackBeat Go, with good sound quality and a slightly improved design. It only makes small changes and it still has weak bass, but considering it’s $20 less than the original BackBeat Go...

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless earbuds

 

Decent quality sound for a reasonable price, but we still long for better bass

Improved audio quality ; Inline controls provide much better tactility ; Charging case is a nice extra

Battery life could be better ; Lack of bass ; Fit won't suit all users

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2

 

The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 stereo Bluetooth headset is a small but welcome upgrade to the previous BackBeat Go, and offers a great value despite its light bass output.

Useful design touches. Inexpensive, even with optional battery charging pouch. Solid midrange and high-end response.

Weak bass. Microphone picks up street noise.

Conclusion The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is a solid upgrade to the original BackBeat Go, with good sound quality and a slightly improved design. It only makes small changes and it still has weak bass, but considering it's $20 less than the original...

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 + Charging Case Black

 

Well, I'm happy to report that with the BackBeat Go 2 Plantronics has fixed most -- though not all -- of the small flaws found in the original, and indeed, it is easier to recommend at its $79.99 price point.

The lightweight, reasonably priced Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless stereo headset improves upon the Go 1, with better sound quality and a sweatproof design, The step-up BackBeat Go 2 + Charging Case includes a protective case that has a built-in...

Battery life isn't great (4.5 hours), so the inclusion of the Charging Case is an important extra.

The inclusion of a charging case as part of this bundle helps the excellent Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 overcome its one serious weakness: short battery life.

Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 Review

 

Always a trailblazer in the space, Plantronics is hoping that its updated pair, the BackBeat Go 2, will be the go-to companion for hardcore fitness individuals all around. At first glance, it looks very much like any pair of wired headphones, but it...

Compact design ; Superior audio quality ; Inexpensive

Disappointing call quality ; Short battery life ; Minimal software features

Granted that it falls flat in the call quality department, and its battery life is short, the base $79.99 cost of the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is something we can’t overlook. Certainly it’s a tally that we find super inviting since it’s affordable,...
