I love listening to music when I workout. Whether its to pump me up for the workout or distract me from the pain, its a necessity. However, you need to have headphones that can face the conditions of a fit lifestyle. During training sessions my headphones must endure getting caught onto objects and tolerate the sweat. In addition, they have to survive the wet conditions when I run in the rain. Also I have not been able to find a pair that stays in my ears.
I have been through my fair share of headphones. It seemed that I would always have to get another pair every couple of months. Yet, then came the Plantronics BackBeat Fit headset. I’ve had this headset for a few months now and they have exceeded my expectations.
I am by no means a sound expert, but the sound is great for me. I have the volume at about half max volume because any higher will be too loud for me. They don’t completely block outside noise, however that is great when I am running outdoors. If you wanted to block outside noise, they are able to.
The BackBeat Fit headset wraps around the back of the head and wraps around the ears. On each ear are buttons for certain functions, such as pause/play, volume, calls etc. The range is around 40 feet. But, if there are objects between you and your phone it will cut out a bit. Otherwise it has been no problem. They are easy to use and the best part is that they remain in my ears during any workout!!!
There have been no issues, durability wise, since I got these headphones. Because of the wireless design, these headphones are unlike to get caught on something in the gym. Also, they are designed to outlast the sweat and any wet training conditions. After numerous workouts, my headset still looks brand new!
The battery lasts for 8 hours and only takes around 2 hours to recharge. A great feature is every time you turn on the headset it informs you on the time you have left. 8 hours is plenty of time to get a few workouts in. Also, after having the headset for awhile now, the battery does not seem to be degrading what so ever.
I can not be happier with a headset. Finally, I am able to listen to music while training and not have to fumble around with them constantly. I thoroughly recommend the Plantronics BackBeat Fit headset.
