Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 review

 

A traveler's best friend

Incredible 24 hour battery life ; Multi-point Bluetooth ; Amiable sound

Bass overwhelming at times ; Styling not for everyone

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 offer insane battery life, great sound quality and good active noise cancellation for the price. It may not offer the best noise cancellation in the segment but they’re an undeniably good value for what you’re getting.

Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2

 

The Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 are one of a growing sea of over-ear wireless headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC), gunning for the same space as the Bose QuietComfort 35.

Solid wireless over-ear headphones that won’t be beaten for value.

Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 headphones beat most competitors for half the money

 

We review the latest noise-canceling, wireless headphones from Plantronics.

Tons of features ; Solid noise cancellation ; Good sound ; Great price ; Very comfortable

Sometimes overly bright sound ; Minor design quibbles

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 sound better and are cheaper than their predecessor, and basically every other competitor, while offering every option imaginable. Great value for money.

Consumer review by: Deviot (productreview.com.au)

Very handy

 

Great sound quality and extra features especially for its price point. Very comfortable on your ears. Noise cancelling great feature but still doesn't drown out all the excess noise in a busy office space but surprisingly worked well for that purpose...
