This Sequel Is Awesome and Easy!

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...
