I'm an avid runner who trains outside in the humid summer weather of NJ and so far I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I run about 40 miles a week so I'd consider myself a heavy user. The sound is great, the fit is perfect, the volume is plenty loud and the battery is impressive. I've had other wireless headsets and they either didn't stay in my ear or they stopped working but these show no signs of slowing me down. The only change I would make is to have an option to not purchase the case if it means lowering the price. My phone doesn't fit in the case and I already own a case so it was a throw in that I didn't need.

If I could give half stars i'd give these a 3 1/2. For a 1 size fits all unit, they fit great even on my weird shaped head/ears, love the fitment, love the size, love the usability, easy setup, love the firmware update app, very easy. Ok what I don't like, understand this may not be an issue for most people but a big one for myself, the sound is way too low and no bass, the reason is because they aren't sitting far enough inside your ear, if you push them closer to the inside of your ear the sound is really loud and lots of bass but unfortunately they aren't made to stay that close. Definitely going to keep using because of the connivence of bluetooth, the price I paid for them, and overall these are good set of headphones but if you like listening to hip hop/Pop or anything that is bass/treble driven then these aren't for you...

Unreliable

By 

from San Antonio, TX, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

The headset was very unreliable. It would work, then stop working, then work again. After a year it's stopped working altogether. I had the headset for about 6 months when it began having problems. I have to have a set of wired headphones in my gym bag at all times because I don't know when they will work.

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

My husband bought these for me as a birthday gift..I really liked them as they are comfortable to wear but I only used them 3 times and now they will not charge. The light just stays red while charging and they will not turn on. The battery should not have any issues with such little use. They were expensive to only use them 3 times.

I bought these headphones thinking that they were good and would last but after only using them less then a dozen times they no longer take a charge and don't work. Really disappointed!

Washing Machine-proof

By 

from Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

Bought an older version of these a few years ago in an airport because I needed Bluetooth earphones.
These are the only ones I've found which don't cause aches after a few hours.
Bass is okay, mid and treble are very clear. They allow me to hear what's going on around me while still hearing my music perfectly well. That and the fact they were marketed as 'sweat-proof' makes them well-suited for use while I'm cycling around the city.
What's more, I lost them about a week ago.
Today I found them, in a freshly-washed pair of shorts... and they STILL WORK.
I tried to turn them on right away and was immediately greeted with a full power level reading. Amazing!
I will definitely be buying these again... if my current ones ever somehow manage to die, that is.

I've been using these for almost 3 years now with my old iPhone 4S. During these years I've changed to an iPhone 6 and now iPhone 7. Same problem on all of them...BB Fit are undiscoverable so now way they can be paired.

Great headset, if it lasts

By 

from Denver, CO

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

I loved my headphones, until they stopped working (no sound whatsoever) a little over a year since purchase. We'll see how long this replacement set lasts. Other than that, they're great headphones. They'd be even greater if Plantronics had enough faith in them to offer a warranty beyond the bare minimum (I think it's 1 year).

Great earphones for their price

By 

from The Hague, Netherlands

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

I bought them a little more than a year ago and I was very pleased with them. The sound is great value for money and the controls intuitive and well thought of. If you are sitting in an insulated room listening to a classical concert and trying to distinguish the 2nd violin of the orchestra from the 3rd, they might not be your thing, but if you are cycling on a busy street listening to your rock'n'roll or favorite podcast it doesn't get any better than this at this price range.

I have made daily and rather heavy use of them (well above 3h/day), as I cycle at least 20 km to get to work and back every day and do various other outdoors sports activities in the rainy, windy Dutch weather. In more than a year, both the sound quality and the battery life have shown no signs of deterioration from their initial satisfactory level. A small piece of the coating at the part that goes behind the ear has peeled off, but this has not affected my experience.

All in all, a very solid product, which I would recommend unreservedly. Great customer support too, helpful and efficient. Now that my 2-year old dealt them a lethal blow, I plan to replace them with the updated model -
the new design also looks somewhat sturdier in comparison to the ones I had, which I, as a dad of two (a 2- and a 4-year old) little monsters, appreciate a great deal.

The product worked fine with good sound quality however one year warranty is not long enough I will not purchase again or recommend because the backbeat fit keeps failing

These are so great! I bought them Twice!

By 

from Huntington Beach, CA, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

I had purchased BackBeat Fit about 1-1/2 years ago. So much better than the other headphones I've tried. What I like about them; super light, great sound, long battery life, works perfectly with android, nice looking, and waterproof. I mistakenly put them through a 2-wash cycle when I left them in my gym shorts. (They survived!)
I lost them about two weeks ago and I totally miss them. I finally broke down & purchased a new pair of BackBeat Fit today. They aren't cheap, but they're high quality & worth every penny!

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

Bought these for running and they are working great. Have non sealing in-ear style which allows you to hear the outside environment (essential if you ask me but very few products on market in this style now) Good sound. Waterproof. Fit well. The ear clips are soft and flexible enough to allow wear with glasses/sunglasses comfortably (I tried it)

BackBeat FIT

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

Sweatproof! flexible! comfortable. All these are great features of the product. I haven't used outside running yet we will see later if they can produce enough volume to drown out all the city noise. The one problem I have with the whole setup is the pouch. I have not found a phone yet that will fit in the pouch and are able to still zip it up.

Sports headphones that don't hold up to sweat

By 

from Boston

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

I bought these headphones a month ago and they were great at first. Comfortable, good sound quality, good BT connection and range. Then after a month of regular exercise and sweat the headset started rusting and the buttons started to stick, rendering them unusable. Total waste of money. Please don't call them Sports Headphones if they can't handle a little sweat.

Exactly what I needed

By 

from South Dakota

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

Pros: I drive a forklift in a cooler/freezer warehouse (26°/-6° F) so I have to dress warm. I wear a balaclava under my hardhat and a hoodie pulled over the hardhat. I also wear thick, insulated gloves. The BackBeat Fit are perfect for me because even with gloves and two layers of head ware, I can still quickly and easily operate the controls.

For example, if a co-worker needs to talk to me, I can quick tap the left ear and pause. No need to remove my gloves and try to find the pause button while fumbling with my clothing. Also, I can listen to my music and still be aware of outside noises, such as horns from other fork-trucks warning as they approach doorways and such.

I'm also very pleased that the battery lasts through my shift on one charge. I listen to at least 6 hours every day and have never been short of power.

I have not used the phone features on this yet, so can not comment on that part.

Cons: The first pair of these didn't work, they wouldn't take a charge. I returned them and the new set have been working flawlessly.

The ear buds are a bit uncomfortable for me, but very tolerable. I noticed that when I wear my balaclava, it presses the earpieces closer to my ears and the sound quality improves over when I don't wear it. If I also hold my hands over my ears and press a little, the sound is even better - deeper bases is especially noticeable. So better fitting earbuds would improve my listening pleasure.

Just a few days ago (as of this posting, that is) I discovered that I had somehow lost one of the ear buds. These have to be ordered as you're not likely to find them at a retail store.

The best I've found but could use improvements

By 

from Connecticut, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

I ride my bike daily always with music. I've tried a few different bluetooth headphones and these Plantronic BackBeat FIT are the best I've used. A few bullets:

Pros: Comfortable resting design- not too far in ear- and always fit well on my head. Easy to pair/use with good gestures (ie tap to pause). Solid battery life and durable. Quality sound.

Cons: Main negative is with the volume, it simply doesn't get loud enough. For activities like biking (and mowing the lawn) I have it set to full volume and I'd like it to be louder. Another con is that the profile of unit is a bit large, thus catching wind when riding. These have a smaller profile than other in the market, but I'd still like them to be smaller and more aerodynamic to limit the noise from wind.

The price point is also on the higher end, but they're the best I've found and my previous version lasted over 2 years so overall am happy with the purchase and recommend the Plantronics brand.

Happy with my backbeat FIT

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

I brought this a few weeks ago and am very happy with the performance so fat. I use it to listen to the radio when working out amd walking. Also to make and listen to phone calls. It seems to ne a great improvement on previous models i.e, all one molding with minimum moving parts so less likely to break as the previous DoD. Also the voice info is very useful

Darn Fine

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

Bought these to ski and bike a year or so. Had bought them to "try out" next to some other products. The preferred one wires broke and cover came off the speakers. Now in my third replacement of that unit. Went ahead and reordered the FIT and haven't worn the others since. Only complaint is they can be hard in the ears after a few hours - especially with a ski helmet. Aside from that music is loud and clear and ability to take calls and clear on both the incoming and outgoing side is excellent. Highly recommend.

I don't really understand why this is happening.

By 

from Athens, GA, United States

Verified Buyer

Comments about Plantronics Backbeat Fit Wireless Headphones + Mic:

It is ironic that this product is called backbeat FIT, because it doesn't fit. The earbuds are too big, they hurt my ears. There were no other sizes included and they don't even seem to exist, because I've been looking, the only earbuds for which this seems to be the case. Even skull candy earbuds come with extra sizes. I am completely stumped. This one...this one is a puzzler.
