Sweat-Proof, Durable Design

You can rely on the BackBeat FIT to work as hard as you do  through rain, sweat, and even the splash of a sports drink. BackBeat FIT headphones are protected against sweat and moisture damage by its design and technology. Then, an invisible, protective nano-coating is applied during the manufacturing process, resulting in invisible liquid repellent properties that also make the earbuds more reliable, wherever your busy life takes you.

Stay Moving Longer

You'll enjoy a week of workouts with up to 8 hours of listening time. When the BackBeat FIT is out of range from your phone or tablet, the DeepSleep power-saving hibernation mode kicks in to keep the headphones charged for up to six months.

Track Battery Levels

Keep track of the battery life of your BackBeat FIT earbuds with a handy headset battery meter that automatically displays onscreen for iPhone and iPad. For Android smartphones and tablets, the free Plantronics Battery Meter app displays a headset battery meter and can provide on-screen alerts when your battery is low or fully charged.

Gets Better with Time

Wirelessly update your BackBeat FIT using a free smartphone app  no connection to a PC or Mac is needed. You will be automatically notified when new firmware is released, and both iOS and Android platforms are supported.

The band that goes behind the neck is comfortable enough that you do not notice it.

Color Name: Blue Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Well, it took a little time to get used to both the fit AND and the interface, but I finally feel ready to properly review the Plantronics Backbeat Fit headphones. Previously, I have been using the Jaybird Bluebuds X. As many reviewers of the Jaybirds have indicated, they are pretty nice earphones that sound more than acceptable when inserted correctly. But, I've had a lot of issues getting them to stay in my ears despite trying many of the varying adapters and different-sized earbuds. Unfortunately, if a good seal isn't maintained, the sound quality of the Jaybirds deteriorates dramatically. Lastly, I don't really love the the long neck strap/cord on the Jaybirds. It bounces around regardless of whether place in front of or behind my neck, or even inside my shirt. I tried the cord fasteners but they didn't really resolve the bouncing issue.

So, that brings me to my quest for an alternative. Enter the Plantronics Backbeat Fit. Let's get right down to it....

FORM
The entire headset (note, they are not earphones) is molded from a very flexible, rubbery material. It looks exceedingly durable and is nicely accented with reflective blue to aid visibility while running while dark out. The Backbeats are a little tricky to put on, though, because the ear supports are somewhat snug and I found it difficult to get them on around my ears. Who knows, perhaps I have bigger ears. However, after doing it a few times, it got easier and I can now throw them on and off without thinking about it. Moreover, the headset stays comfortably in place while exercising (running, lifting, etc). The individual earpieces also have a small rubber wire that's used to help keep the speaker snug next to the auditory canal. It's not sealed as with earphones but it keeps the speaker close.

I used these headphones for about 2 weeks and this is what I thought of them. I review many devices as a living so my opinions may be a little more critical than the average user, but I like to think I am very honest. For more of my reviews check out my youtube channel "MrStatusTech"

Okay, after having so many versions of its predecessors, this one, the Backbeat Fit, Plantronics figured it out. I rarely have these out of my ears. Took about a day of use to get used to the fit and now I forget I have them on. They don't tangle up, the battery lasts all day, the stereo sound is AMAZING yet I can still hear what is going on around me. I'm glad they are using a standard micro USB, so I don't have to lug around yet another charging device. The sport case arm band, can I just say, NAILED IT. Store your headset or turn it inside out and strap to your arm and out for a good run. Ingenious to put these two together, yet so basic I can't believe this hasn't been done before. This is definitely a music first device. It does a great job with audio for calls as long as your in a quiet environment. It pauses your music right where you left off and when the call is over, it starts playing again ... love this feature.

So I had a Motorola S9-HD Rokr running headset for years and last week, it fell out of my gym bag in the locker room and vanished. After spending a day or two checking with the front desk staff at the gym, I decided to buy a replacement but to my dismay, the S9-HD is no longer manufactured. The replacement Motorola headsets all had mixed reviews so I was hesitant to plunk down money for something I wouldn't be totally happy with (I'm picky about my workout gear).

Eventually I settled on this headset. Sure, it was a little more expensive but the reviews were fantastic so I figured "what the hell" and pulled the trigger. Unsurprisingly, as soon as I bought the new headset, the gym found my old one the following day. Seeing as it was too late to cancel the order, I figured I'd just eat the restocking fee and return the Plantronics headset once it arrived. The box showed up and I opened it and figured, "well, might as well check it out before I return it"...

I won't be returning it.

-It fits perfectly and is much lighter than the old headset I was using

-It power on easily and a disembodied voice cheerfully tells you your battery level and announces when it pairs with my phone.

-The sound is rich, deep and amazing. Night and day compared to my old headset. I actually can't play this thing at full volume or it hurts my ears.

-Battery life is about the same. It lasts through about 3 two hour workouts before it needs to be charged again. Whoever said it lasts a week was wrong.

-The controls take a little getting used to (tiny, tiny buttons) but once you figure out how everything works, it's fine.

These headphones are great for the gym. I had tried other Bluetooth headphones (Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Earbuds - Retail Packaging - Black and JayBird BlueBuds X Sport Bluetooth Headphones - Midnight Black) but the over the ear design of the Backbeat Fit really helps to keep them in place. I had been using Klipsch Image S4 -II Black In-Ear Headphones for years, but wanted something wireless. When exercising, the cord would get tangled on the gym equipment or something else and pull the headphones out of my ears. Larger headphones that go over the top of my head were not an option, too big to run or do other cardio with. When I saw that Plantronics announced the Backbeat Fit at CES, I was checking for their retail release almost daily. They sound great, are loud enough for the gym and are very comfortable. The buttons are easy to operate while working out, and the Fit speaks the battery level when turning them on or pressing the power button which helps to know when they need a charge.

UPDATE:
After using the Backbeat Fit for many cardio sessions at the gym I can say these headphones are awesome! Not having a cord that gets tangled and pulls the headphones off my ears is very nice. I can just put the Backbeat Fit on my head and forget about them while working out, no need to constantly adjust them.
