Will Reviews: Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2

Wednesday, 7 November 2018

Will here, back for another review on Dungarees and Donuts! Olivia was gifted these Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 headphones are available here from AO.com, they are Bluetooth wireless headphones with noise cancelling technology. As last time when I did a review for Mo Bro's Grooming Kit a lot of you seemed to enjoy it, we thought it would be fun to do another review! Let me know in the comments what you'd like to see me review next.

The Look:
Personally, I'm really picky about headphones. I hate having ones that aren't designed to last, and I really don't like having ones that sound bad either. The issue is there are so many headphones that are poorly designed and poorly designed headphones can actually cause discomfort and a poor experience when listening to music.  The Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 has surprised me, there's a lot of technology going on in quite a small headset. In terms of design, they look nice. There's grip on each earpiece and a nice imitation wood finish on the sides. The black and brown colour scheme is a nice touch, I really like how Plantronics have used different textures in the design of these. I couldn't really complain about how it looks as it looks really modern and sleek.

The Sound:
Music is built up from different frequencies, highs, mids, and lows. Some headphones distort or miss some frequencies, and I really don't like that. From what I've experienced with the BackBeat PRO 2 music sounds really nice and I didn't hear any distortion. When listening to music to test these, The bass was really cool, every thud from a kick drum and every snap from a snare was prominent, and the ring from every cymbal sounded really smooth and clear. It's possible to hear every echo and reverb from sounds through these headphones too, and you can hear layered or hidden elements of songs too. These headphones would be really good for music production.

The Feel: 

The BackBeat PRO 2 has soft padding around the headband and ears. The padding is soft, the headband is very adjustable too, making for a great fit and comfort. They're able to be used for long periods of time without discomfort. They don't feel too loose to wear either, which is another positive. The noise cancelling that these headphones have is good, and probably some of the best I have ever used. When the music is at half volume, any background noise is almost unnoticeable. I can imagine the noise cancellation to be great for trips away or even during a noisy commute on the train.

The wrap up: 
Not to forget, these headphones are also wireless making them great for when you're on the go, you don't have to deal with wires getting tangled and you can take phone calls through the headset. Most wireless headphones have a really bad battery life that doesn't last much longer, but these headphones actually have a very long battery life. From what I noticed, they seemed to last longer than a day's worth of use when wireless.

One of the cons of these headphones is that they aren't collapsible so when you put it in your bag you need to be careful in case it was to break, but they feel very sturdy. The open mic feature can be a bit confusing when you're not using it, as your voice is played back through the headphones but this can easily be adjusted.

Overall, my experience with using these headphones has been really great and I couldn't recommend them enough. I have to say that they definitely stand up to competitors in the market. Absolutely worth the money because you really do get the quality that you pay for!

  7. Sound to me is the most important thing as when you listen to different sorts of music genres like I do you need something that can make it clear. I think these headphones would work well for that
