Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Earbuds - Retail Packaging - White Reviews

This Sequel Is Awesome and Easy!

Posted

Pros: Decent iPod sound quality, EASY pairing with iP5, intuitive controls, good iP5 call quality (both ways); Much better sound than a single BT earpiece

Cons: Must remove an earpiece during calls (drum effect); Ear pieces are very large; Length of charge is short at ~4 hours or so

I took a leap of faith with this purchase. There were only 9 reviews on Amazon, but the avg was 4.5. I don't usually expect a lot of credence in most Amazon reviews, but people are critical of bluetooth headsets in general. I am, too.   My initial testing, though by no means extensive, indicate that this BT stereo headset is a capable little item. I had a range of over 20' several times, which means I don't need to carry my iP5 around my office. Callers say it sounds, "good," "normal," "like a real phone" (whatever that means). And the tunes on my iP5 sound as good as entry-level earphones. I haven't tested it outside or in my car, yet. I don't expect any surprises in the car,...

Great pair of BT earphones

Posted

Pros: Fast pairing process, Light, Great noise-cancellation, Great sound output

Cons: Earpiece isn't the best design, Vibrations heard when the wire is hit/tapped against

Overall I have given the BBTGO2 4.5 stars due to it being a fantastic product with a few annoyances. The battery life is fairly good given the form factor and will last me a solid 5.5 hours of listening time between charges. It is easy to determine the battery levels, whether the sound-over voice reports the battery levels, or whether I look at my iPhone with a nice little battery-indicator at the top corner of the screen (nice integration, Apple!). I generally use this at the office where it can get quite loud and at the gym; both of which allow me to immerse into the music itself without any interference. The length of the cable is good enough to sit behind your neck, or in front tucked...

Great Sounding Headset

Posted

Pros: Very clear. Sound all rounder jack of all trades. Best for vocal and live music.

Cons: Battery doesn't last

First of all I want everyone to understand that I'm a AKG 701 user and I pair with my pico dac (underpowered) on my pc for years so I'm picky with sound quality and unused to listening to a lot of bass.  Now that's out of the way, here's my review.  These plantronics headset surprised me with sound quality.  The clean and clear sound from these headset made me worry each time whether I have my earbuds on.  I had to take them off each time to check whether my speakers is on or my headset is when I'm playing music.  Its that clean, clear, and has really nice detail to background sound.  It has very nice highs especially vocals are clear might be a bit sharp for...

Jack of all trades, but master of none, a great earphone for daily use.

Posted

Pros: A good all rounder, very practical, quite durable even when exposed to some abuse

Cons: It's BIG, battery life can be better, doesn't include line setter for Over the ear use. Wind noise is apparent

It's a fine earphones, and a great Bluetooth one for that matter. For the period of time since i bought it, I always wear it around my neck like a necklace, and it hasn't broke since... nowadays i use it as backup earphones whenever I think using my IM 50 a hassle, when It's raining, or just forgot to bring it... and Plantronic can make up for it in sound too, to explain it: A jack of all trades, but master of none, fine for any genre of music, but that's it. This will be a great headset for exercising and it durable to boot, what do you need more?

A great pair of mid-priced BT in-ears for active users with only a few minor issues

Posted

Pros: Good all-round sound, bass is better than most BT in-ears when out and about, excellent wire free freedom, light weight, case with built-in charger

Cons: Battery life could be better, design means wind noise can be slightly intrusive

To quickly set the scene, I've never really spent much on iem's of any nature until recently, and still probably only have one high-end pair to speak of (Sennheiser ie8's), but part of my recent quest for in-ears has been split between commuting and exercising. And it is this second area that brought me to trying out the Plantronics Backbeat Go 2's.   These in-ears are part of my long hunt for the perfect pair of iem's to accompany me only my daily morning ride (roughly 18 miles). And because I ride when listening to music, I am always cursing wind noise and lack of bass response that many a pair of iem's create when out and about.   So, introductions over, let me share with...
