They didn't fit my ears at all; even with the smallest buds, they kept falling out.
Thelma M. Watts
I got them to use at the gym because they are sweat proof and they work great for that purpose.
Colin
The only downside to them is the battery life on a full charge is a little more then 2 hours.

I used these for two weeks before I chose to write this review. I am currently overseas and since I've received these they have been far more useful than I was hoping they would be. To negate some of the other comments I've seen, I have taken these headphones on 3,4 and 5 miles runs and there has only been a single time where one of the earbuds have come loose. They fit great. The controls on the wire are very easy to use and the headphones even talk to you and tell you whats happening. It will say "power on", "power off", it will tell you when it is pairing mode, and will also tell you when it successfully connects or if you wander to far from the transmitter and it disconnects. I havent exactly timed the battery but roughly 4 hours is correct. I live in a tent with 5 other people and at first we were fighting over people playing their music or movies too loud or their games too loud or anything else that made noise. These headphones were a blessing. I can put a movie on and still be able to clean and do whatever I need to do away from the screen while it plays. The signal reaches to all areas within my tent so I'm guessing about 25 feet? I start to lose it when I step outside. Whether that be from distance or just line of sight being lost through the tent fabric I'm not sure. I have also tried the "one in one out" with the headphone. I havent while running outside, but on a treadmill or just working out if you tuck the other one away and dont let it bounce around youll be fine. At first I got these to use with my phone(mp3 player) and computer but I ordered a bluetooth transmitter shortly after and now anything that uses a headphone jack can be transmitted to the headset. It is too easy, and it's well worth the money I spent on it.

Style Name: Without Charging CaseProduct Packaging: Standard PackagingColor Name: Black Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm a headphone buff and I've also had more than a dozen Bluetooth headsets over the years. However, I haven't used many Bluetooth stereo earphones, so I was very excited to give the BackBeat GO 2 a try.

PROS:
- Very good sound quality for Bluetooth
- Good bass response
- Easy to pair and use
- Sweat/water resistant
- Pair up to 8 devices

CONS:
- Poor battery life
- Cable can snag on your neck during workouts

COMFORT
The BackBeat GO 2 (BBG2) weighs just 14 grams and is reasonably comfortable to wear. My ears did ache a little and felt itchy after wearing them for a couple of hours straight, but that's not unlike most other earphones. The BackBeat GO 2 uses rubber "stabilizers" to help keep the speakers safely in your ears so if you wear them during your fitness activities, they won't fall out. They're similar to the design used in some of Plantronics' Bluetooth mono headsets. The BBG2 comes with the medium eartips installed as well as another set of small and large tips.

SOUND QUALITY
For a Bluetooth earphone that doesn't support aptX, the BBG2 sounds very good. I enjoyed listening to music with them, including lots of modern music that have lots of bass. Movies were also fun to watch and the good bass response helped in scenes with lots of special effects and explosions. As with any earphone, it's important to get a proper seal to get the best sound quality and the BBG2 is no different. Plantronics stresses this point frequently in their literature.

DESIGN & FEATURES
The BBG2 isn't completely "wireless," per se, because the left and right speakers are attached via a short cable with a remote attached.

The BackBeat GO2's greatly improve upon the first generation of the product.

Pros: While they don't have the full range of my Klipsch earbuds, they are easy to wear, comfortable, and obviously don't get tangled with your activities.

Easy to pair (even with multiple devices). The controls are simple, and it's easy to get a perfect fit.

The charging port is sealed well and sturdy.

Cons: 5ish hour battery life isn't great, but isn't bad.

Overall, I can't imagine the comfort and fit getting any better ever for BT ear buds... expanded dynamic range and better battery life is all that's needed.

It's a winner!

Update 8/29/2013:

After about 3 weeks of use, the headset completely stopped responding to any button command nor would power on. When plugged in to charge, the light would stay red- forever, days in fact. I returned it to Amazon and received a replacement. Still like them, but am concerned about the reliability.

This review compares the following Bluetooth headsets, all of which I have owned and used:

Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Earbuds - Retail Packaging - Black
LG Electronics Tone+ HBS-730 Bluetooth Headset - Retail Packaging - Black
SONY DR-BT150NC-B Black | In-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones (Japanese Import)

The first set I went with was the LG Tone. I didn't like it, for the following reasons:
* The setup was awkward. Wires coming out of a rigid frame looked weird to me, like I was part of some science experiment. And it was not easy to get the earbuds to seat themselves back into the rigid frame. The magnets were supposed to make this easy, but the whole thing was visually and mechanically awkward.
* The sound was tinny. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't great, and I didn't think it was good enough. I'm no audiphile, but I wanted better.

The next pair I tried was the BackBeat GO 2, which I liked a lot better. Here are additional details.
* The sound was better, with better bass.
* The design was much better and simpler, which is very close to what I wanted.
* The controls were somewhat small and difficult to get at, which I was not crazy about.
* The earbuds were not terribly comfortable, which proved frustrating and literally irritating.
