So, I bought these headphones and were quite impressed with how well they worked. Good sound quality, easy to charge (more on that later), paired quickly with my iphone; good purchase...at first. WARNING....they only work for about 4-5 months. Within a few months they started randomly disconnecting from my phone, and they now won''t charge or hold a charge. Terrible set of headphones if you want something that works for at least a year. The crazy part is that they''re not exactly cheap headphones; so for the money you''d expect them to last for a while... *in Charlie Murphy voice* Wrong....Wrong. DO NOT BUY THESE! Save yourself! Do not let my sacrifice be in vain.

I have owned this headset for 7 months. The ear cups (pads) have a small split. I''m at the gym everyday and I think I wore them out. I contacted Plantronics to buy some replacement pads. They don''t make replacement pads -- it''s a whole unit replacement.

In every other way these headphones excel. Battery life is amazing. They are easy to pair. They fit well. They are easy to clean after a workout. But if you expect your customers to buy a whole new headset when the pads wear out, that is insanity.

I was expecting these to be decent Bluetooth headphones with a focus on fitting securely during exercise. They definitely fit me quite well even though my head is a bit large and I need to extend both earcups fully for them to fit my ears well. They won''t fall off no matter how hard I shake my head and I''ve been able to wear them for 4-5 hours straight without any discomfort. I usually find on-ear headphones uncomfortable, but these are a definite exception and feel better than any I''ve tried in the past.

The Bluetooth experience is actually great. I''ve got them paired to my Windows 10 laptop, my iPhone 7, and my Acer Chromebook all at the same time and without any issues. The pairing process is painless and they connect immediately when turned on.

They sound great to my ears. I''m not a basshead by any means, so I enjoy the relatively flat sound signature these deliver, particularly as I was expecting something named "BackBeat" to be very bass-focused.

For ~$80.00, these are the best Bluetooth headphones I''ve seen and, as long as they hold up well (and they seem to based on older reviews), I''ll be using them for at least a few years.

If you''re looking for amazing sound quality and deep bass, then these are not for your.

Instead, if you''re looking for a comfortable over the ear headphone that is sweat resistant and has above average sound (and better bass than your typical in ear headphones), well then this is where it is at. I''ve used this in both workout and travel settings. They stay on while I run and they are comfortable enough to wear on an 11 hour flight. As for the sound quality, as some others have noted the bass is not as great as you might expect but then again, I don''t think these are marketed as an audiophile''s dream. However, they do have decent sound and the bass is not as lacking as some have commented. Overall, I''m very happy with my purchase so far. Ultimately you cannot go wrong with these if you''re looking for over the ear workout headphones.

THESE HEADPHONES STINK. THEY REALLY STINK. THEY REALLY REALLY STINK A WHOLE LOT. The only thing worse than the quality of these headphones is the worthless customer support at Poly. I am on my SECOND PAIR. Why??? Because the first ones QUIT WORKING AFTER SIX DAYS. THAT, OF COURSE, WAS SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE COMPARED TO THE REPLACEMENT PAIR WHICH LASTED THREE REPEAT THREE DAYS. Their customer support team REFUSES REPEAT REFUSES to send me my money back; they can only replace. Which means -- follow this closely -- my THIRD pair is now in transit to me, as a replacement to the SECOND PAIR, which were a replacement to the first defective pair. That''s right....all THREE PAIRS WILL HAVE SPENT MORE TIME IN TRANSIT THAN THEY HAVE WORKING ON MY HEAD!!! DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT DO NOT EVER BUY THESE!!!

For the price (I paid 80 for this at the time) these are very good wireless headphones. Physical controls are intuitive and easy to access (huge plus). Feels very light while wearing -- I primarily used these at the gym, but sometimes at home when doing chores. Sound quality is fine and microphone quality is also surprisingly good as well, or at least I haven''t had any complaints during calls.

A huge downside is the construction of the headband. I''ve had it break after only about 6 months of normal use. One day I would put the headphones on normally, but as I stretched the headphones out to fit my head, I heard a small crack. Thought nothing of it until I noticed it was getting very loose on my head and had it slip off. I don''t believe I have a large-shaped head, and my other wireless headphones have never had this issue, so it''s hard to tell what caused it.

Plantronics was helpful with the warranty process and sent me a brand new pair, but it''s been a little less than a now and the headband''s broken again. This time I probably won''t go through the trouble of doing another warranty cycle and toss it into the donation box.

TLDR: Very good wireless headphones, especially for the gym and doing active things. Doesn''t cancel out too much sound, so keep that in mind. If you think you have a big head maybe the headband will deteriorate over time and break.

Positives:
-Snug fit, suitable for rigorous exercise
-Lightweight
-comfortable

Negatives:
-Plastic is cheap, feels fragile. Not much metal so don’t drop these
-They look ridiculous- will help to ensure Valentine’s Day is quiet

Sound Quality:
Sound is like every other bt headset.. boring. Probably can’t do much better as there are only a few options for non-earbud sport headphones. these do sound a bit better than my old SMS set which had a great build but sound was garbage. Spoiler alert, 99% of headphones on the market use literally the exact same internal components. Like exact- I work in audio in the ce industry. It’s depressing. So don’t hold your breath for the unicorn headset.

Overall, these seem like a good value and functional for exercise, would recommend. PLT should step up the material quality a bit and make the headband round instead of the chastity-headdress design that’s currently employed.

Otherwise they and very lightweight and comfortable. After an hour and a half they are still comfortable.

So, I bought these headphones and were quite impressed with how well they worked. Good sound quality, easy to charge (more on that later), paired quickly with my iphone; good purchase...at first. WARNING....they only work for about 4-5 months. Within a few months they started randomly disconnecting from my phone, and they now won''t charge or hold a charge. Terrible set of headphones if you want something that works for at least a year. The crazy part is that they''re not exactly cheap headphones; so for the money you''d expect them to last for a while... *in Charlie Murphy voice* Wrong....Wrong. DO NOT BUY THESE! Save yourself! Do not let my sacrifice be in vain.

I have owned this headset for 7 months. The ear cups (pads) have a small split. I''m at the gym everyday and I think I wore them out. I contacted Plantronics to buy some replacement pads. They don''t make replacement pads -- it''s a whole unit replacement.

In every other way these headphones excel. Battery life is amazing. They are easy to pair. They fit well. They are easy to clean after a workout. But if you expect your customers to buy a whole new headset when the pads wear out, that is insanity.

I was expecting these to be decent Bluetooth headphones with a focus on fitting securely during exercise. They definitely fit me quite well even though my head is a bit large and I need to extend both earcups fully for them to fit my ears well. They won''t fall off no matter how hard I shake my head and I''ve been able to wear them for 4-5 hours straight without any discomfort. I usually find on-ear headphones uncomfortable, but these are a definite exception and feel better than any I''ve tried in the past.

The Bluetooth experience is actually great. I''ve got them paired to my Windows 10 laptop, my iPhone 7, and my Acer Chromebook all at the same time and without any issues. The pairing process is painless and they connect immediately when turned on.

They sound great to my ears. I''m not a basshead by any means, so I enjoy the relatively flat sound signature these deliver, particularly as I was expecting something named "BackBeat" to be very bass-focused.

For ~$80.00, these are the best Bluetooth headphones I''ve seen and, as long as they hold up well (and they seem to based on older reviews), I''ll be using them for at least a few years.

If you''re looking for amazing sound quality and deep bass, then these are not for your.

Instead, if you''re looking for a comfortable over the ear headphone that is sweat resistant and has above average sound (and better bass than your typical in ear headphones), well then this is where it is at. I''ve used this in both workout and travel settings. They stay on while I run and they are comfortable enough to wear on an 11 hour flight. As for the sound quality, as some others have noted the bass is not as great as you might expect but then again, I don''t think these are marketed as an audiophile''s dream. However, they do have decent sound and the bass is not as lacking as some have commented. Overall, I''m very happy with my purchase so far. Ultimately you cannot go wrong with these if you''re looking for over the ear workout headphones.

THESE HEADPHONES STINK. THEY REALLY STINK. THEY REALLY REALLY STINK A WHOLE LOT. The only thing worse than the quality of these headphones is the worthless customer support at Poly. I am on my SECOND PAIR. Why??? Because the first ones QUIT WORKING AFTER SIX DAYS. THAT, OF COURSE, WAS SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE COMPARED TO THE REPLACEMENT PAIR WHICH LASTED THREE REPEAT THREE DAYS. Their customer support team REFUSES REPEAT REFUSES to send me my money back; they can only replace. Which means -- follow this closely -- my THIRD pair is now in transit to me, as a replacement to the SECOND PAIR, which were a replacement to the first defective pair. That''s right....all THREE PAIRS WILL HAVE SPENT MORE TIME IN TRANSIT THAN THEY HAVE WORKING ON MY HEAD!!! DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT DO NOT EVER BUY THESE!!!

For the price (I paid 80 for this at the time) these are very good wireless headphones. Physical controls are intuitive and easy to access (huge plus). Feels very light while wearing -- I primarily used these at the gym, but sometimes at home when doing chores. Sound quality is fine and microphone quality is also surprisingly good as well, or at least I haven''t had any complaints during calls.

A huge downside is the construction of the headband. I''ve had it break after only about 6 months of normal use. One day I would put the headphones on normally, but as I stretched the headphones out to fit my head, I heard a small crack. Thought nothing of it until I noticed it was getting very loose on my head and had it slip off. I don''t believe I have a large-shaped head, and my other wireless headphones have never had this issue, so it''s hard to tell what caused it.

Plantronics was helpful with the warranty process and sent me a brand new pair, but it''s been a little less than a now and the headband''s broken again. This time I probably won''t go through the trouble of doing another warranty cycle and toss it into the donation box.

TLDR: Very good wireless headphones, especially for the gym and doing active things. Doesn''t cancel out too much sound, so keep that in mind. If you think you have a big head maybe the headband will deteriorate over time and break.

Positives:
-Snug fit, suitable for rigorous exercise
-Lightweight
-comfortable

Negatives:
-Plastic is cheap, feels fragile. Not much metal so don’t drop these
-They look ridiculous- will help to ensure Valentine’s Day is quiet

Sound Quality:
Sound is like every other bt headset.. boring. Probably can’t do much better as there are only a few options for non-earbud sport headphones. these do sound a bit better than my old SMS set which had a great build but sound was garbage. Spoiler alert, 99% of headphones on the market use literally the exact same internal components. Like exact- I work in audio in the ce industry. It’s depressing. So don’t hold your breath for the unicorn headset.

Overall, these seem like a good value and functional for exercise, would recommend. PLT should step up the material quality a bit and make the headband round instead of the chastity-headdress design that’s currently employed.
