Well, for my part the choice was made this Christmas. I got the Plantronics Backbeat pro as a gift.
I must say I'm more than satisfied. I haven't tested the ANC in very hostile environments but at work and at home it works very well. Not superb for voices but every constant sound nearly disappears. I'm in love with their control scheme, they are easy to operate, the buttons are well positioned. The battery life is more than impressive. The feature allowing ambiant noises to pass through is magical, and I use it much more than I would have thought. Sound is not quite as warm as my Sennheiser px210BT, but better than the Bose earbuds I have. Certainly among the best I've used. They are very comfortable for my head shape, I can wear them for long periods without discomfort. They seem well made and durable.
Their only "flaw" is that they do not fold, the only way to reduce size is to swivel the ears. That means they are big and take up a lot of space, which could be an issue when traveling.
The case is thick and quite rigid, if looks durable. The cable is high-quality, thick and not at all flimsy. The controls don't do much with an Android phone or computer, sadly.
I'm very happy with that gift, it will get the job done for me.
