10#Best Selling

Plantronics BackBeat GO 3 - Wireless Headphones - Copper Grey with Charge Case
  • Wireless Earbuds with High-Resolution Sound: Custom speakers and tuning deliver vivid, high-resolution sound, while the earbuds block out noise and seal in a rich listening experience.
  • Stable, Comfort-Fit Eartips: We 3D-mapped the human ear to create comfort-fit eartips that stay put even when you don’t.


  • The headset was especially designed with people who need music to complete a workout in mind! Weighing less than an ounce and made of a rubberized plastic, these Plantronics wireless earbuds are also water and sweat resistant, so you’re free to make even the most extreme moves, since there’s no cable to bother you.
  • After a first look, you will notice that they’re unsealed, so there aren’t any silicone tips to insert in your ears and completely block external noise. In our opinion, this is a big plus, since even though noise-cancelling technologies are awesome, you really need to be aware of what’s happening around you during workouts or when going for a run. Safety comes first, so it’s recommended to be able to listen for oncoming traffic!
  • The Plantronics Backbeat Fit loop over the top of the ear and will remain secure all the time, making them suitable for running, no matter if you’re on track or treadmill. Sure, the cord that gets around your neck might bounce a bit, but you really don’t need to worry about this as they are extremely lightweight.
  • The controls are positioned on the buds, allowing you to easily adjust the volume, change the tracks and pause the music. These are positioned on the left earpiece, while on the right you have the power and phone buttons. Also, on the same right earpiece there’s a micro USB port, that can be accessed by lifting the small cover . Oh, and yes, you do get a USB cable in the box.


  • Like mentioned above, the Plantronics BackBeat Fit bluetooth headphones don’t have a seal, but, to our surprise, this doesn’t affect the sound quality that much. Actually, we were more than just impressed about how good they sound and how loud they can get, reaching 105 decibels.
  • Of course, they do have their minuses. The bass is far from being strong, unlike the top of the class jaybird x2’s. However, the highs, lows and midrange…man, they sound good! In a nutshell, if you’re not an audiophile, you will barely find much to complain about the sound quality of these headphones. For a Bluetooth headset, they sound more than decent for a pair of “open” earbuds. And let’s be honest, most likely, you’re going to wear them while exercising, so you won’t pay 100% of your attention to the sound, analyzing every aspect of it, right?
  • Let’s not forget about the wireless range, since this is also a very important aspect for a Bluetooth headset. From this point of view, the BackBeat Fit performs incredibly well, allowing you to walk up to 100 feet away from your device without the music skipping!

Battery Life

  • Being a light and relatively small pair of headphones, the Plantronic BackBeat Fit are able to provide up to 8 hours of playback, at a moderate volume, which is way better than the Plantronics Backbeat Go 2. Also, when it comes to talk time, they can last up to 6 hours. Of course, the standby uptime shouldn’t be ignored either, as it can reach 14 days. Finally, the headset also has a “Deep Sleep” hibernation mode, promising up to 6 months of battery life.


  • Yes, they have a couple of minuses, but overall, the conclusion of our Plantronics Backbeat review is that these are the best unsealed wireless Bluetooth headphones money can buy right now. With an eight-hour battery life and a really cool case, that doubles as an armband, so you can carry your phone around during workouts, they are one of the best choices an active user can make.
