Plantronic BackBeat 500 Review
Plantronics have recently launched a rather fabulous new pair of wireless headphones, the BackBeat 500 series – the perfect balance of sound quality, comfort and style, all for £89.99.
As well as being rather gorgeous to look at they have some brilliant features that we love.
Most importantly to me they are really lightweight and very comfy. Bulky, heavy uncomfortable headphones just do not work for me, I just want to take them off!
Most importantly for my OH you get a lot of listening time for your battery – 18 hours of listening time (the longest yet in its price range) batteries running out quickly can be very irritating!
It also has super easy to access on-ear controls which lets you play/pause, skip tracks, adjust volume, and take/end calls. This is so convenient particularly if you are busy. My OH was gardening last weekend and chatting away at the same time it made me giggle.
The BackBeat 500 Series is available in three funky colours – white, dark grey and grey with lime green ear cups – they look as good as they feel. You get an expandable head band and memory foam ear cups.
You can also pair up to 8 devices and connect two and you can access Siri, Google Now, or Cortana with a touch of a button. Now that’s pretty cool right?
We think these are the very best headphones we have ever tried and I have a very hard time getting them off my OH to use myself!
The BackBeat 500 cost £89.99
