At first glance these wireless earphones are compact, light, and comes with an awesome carrying case. The carrying case serves dual purpose as a case and if you flip it inside out it is also a arm band. Unfortunately my phone is too large to fit in it, but it is a great design!!
Wearing the earphones, i was nervous about the one-size-fits all, but ear piece fits so well! I absolutely love this being Bluetooth and not having a wire attached to my phone while running. The buttons on each ear piece are multi-functional, which makes it easy to have less buttons. The voice notifications are nice as well in addition to the light notifications to tell you when it is on/off and connected. I also like that when you turn the headset on it tells you the battery life as well.
While on a run the earphones really stayed in place for me no matter how sweaty I was. The sound was clear and crisp, but I was also able to hear what is going on around me, which I liked. I don't like having all the sound be my music, I like to be aware of whats going on around me since I do most of my running around the city. I would definitely recommend these to fellow runners and friends as a go to Bluetooth earphones.

Since upgrading my phone, I've been on the market for wireless headphones. I received a few recommendations from my fellow Concrete Runners but nothing that I really wanted to purchase and/or try. I am an avid runner and train in all conditions from boot camp to the gym, from outdoor to indoor running - I need something that will accommodate my lifestyle. So I was surprised to hear that Plantronics had a line of wireless headsets. I have used Plantronics for work and was never disappointed in their products. So I couldn't wait to try the BackBeat Fit headphones.
I received them last week and, so far, I am very pleased. They are light, comfortable and hold its charge for a very long time. Most earpieces are either too large or too long so I was surprised on how well they fit and how comfortable they are. The outer hooks provide stability while running or working out. Music is clear without any reverberation and does not need any adjustments while running. I typically run with my phone in hand and having the wireless headphones allows me to have a smoother run. The setup to my phone was also easy. I've only had these for a week so I can't wait to try the other features.
I would also like to add that I attempted to use the headphones at work, since I've used other Plantronics products for conference calls. At first, I was a little hesitant to use it as I haven't figured out the location of the mic; nonetheless, using the BackBeat Fit headphones for my call was a success.

The headphones have a rubber feel that’s durable and flexible. The fit is very secure and lightweight while running. The control buttons are very easy to work. The left side you can start and stop music selection. On the right side you can answer and drop calls, there is a built in microphone.
The product comes with a charging cable and a case that turns into an arm band. I never run with an arm band so it’s really on used as a case for me.
Product comes in three different colors options: Blue/Black, Grey/Black and Black/Green.
- Sound sounds great
- Sweat resistant
- Easy to setup Bluetooth pairing
- Fit is very secure
