Rated 1 out of 5 by ATX Entrepreneur from Constant clicking with these headphonesI bought these to have a more natural fit over my ears- my Beats by DRE headphones just barely cover my ears, so I figured that I'd "upgrade" to these. I keep on getting clicking on these (interruptions all of the time)... seems to be a bluetooth issues that all of my other devices don't have (external bluetooth speaker, and the Beats by DRE. ) Bummed to waste money and time on this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hey You is taken from great bluetoothi bought these a couple months ago. they have really good sound considering its playing over bluetooth. i have seen issues with the song stopping and having to start from the device. it happened to me a few times until i realized i was connected to another device at the same time. when i disconnected tje other device the issue stopped. they are comfy but the spring in them is a little too tight or my head is a little too big. either way after a few hours i find myself changing out to something else. hopefully it will loosen up over time. im glad i didnt have to spend $300/$400 for good set of headphones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tantalizingchef from Superb SoundI've had this pair of speakers for over a year now and LOVE them! I've had BOSE, and several other brands prior, but nothing can touch this for just pure sound quality. No overwhelming bass or highs, just clear, clean, powerful sound. Nicely done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bstore from Excellent sound and sync with televisionSince now few months this earphone is great in term of sound spectrum and quality. A plus is the ability to connect to television. I personaly connect it with Aventree bluetooth box everyday .Small point it takes few tenth seconds for connection, be patient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nolan from Very good for the priceI got these because they had all the features I wanted (and then some) and were less than the Bose equivalent. Sensors work well and granted I'm no audiophile, but the bass is deep, and sound is clear.-Noise canceling works great for white noise and phone conversations (won't cover up shouting or loud talking)-Battery lasts surprisingly long, I charge once a week with moderate use-Range is easily 150 feet +-Play/pause/skip functions work great if paired with a phone, but don't work with chrome web streaming. This would be awesome for them to fix-Comfortable over ear cushions, no pressure points that I notice (they are adjustable)Overall a really good set, and definitely worth the price. I think they look cooler than Bose too, but that's just my style.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kdodom from Great sounding headphones with ok noise reductionI’ve been looking for a good set of headphones to wear at work in particular. I’ve purchased several sets; trying to find ones with the right sound, comfort and noise isolation for me.The Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 were a logical choice to try as I purchased the Backbeat Sense (on ear) headphones and enjoyed the sound and features, but wanted an over ear set for more ambient noise isolation. I bought a set of Bose Soundlink Around Ear II headphones and though I like them, the highs have an emphasis on a frequency that I find a little too harsh and although comfortable, they still didn’t block as much ambient sound as I wanted. Since the Backbeat Pro 2 feature active noise reduction I thought I’d give them a try.These headphones sound very good to me. The bass is definitely emphasized, but not so much that it gets in the way. There is some enhanced presence in the high end, but it never gets shrill. The mids seem somewhat de-emphasized, but not too bad. Mids get a little muddy during complicated sections, though not too bad. Overall I’d call the sound modern and fun. I think most people will enjoy the sound. Of note, unlike many bluetooth headphones, these even sound good with the electronics off and plugged in via the audio connection. Not as good mind you, but not bad at all.Comfort is pretty good. Like all over ear headphones, they don’t let in fresh air around your ears to they get hot at times. Though they are well balanced, they are heavier than a lot of modern over ear headphones, and you do notice the weight after a while. The biggest problem I have with the comfort is that the ear cups aren’t very deep, so the outside of my ears are touching the inside of the ear cups while wearing them. It’s not a lot of pressure there, just barely touching. It’s not an anatomy problem; I don’t have large ears and they don’t protrude any more than average. These are over ear headphones, the outside of my ears shouldn’t be touching anything.The active noise reduction is minimally effective. It works pretty well for some sounds, like my refrigerator and for HVAC fan and wind noise. It cuts those out about 75%. Though, just putting on the headphones blocks at least 50% of those noises. Other droning noises that I thought it would do well on, it doesn’t. My lawn mower, for instance, I would have thought it would block out the noise, but it doesn’t. It also doesn’t do well on random background noises like talking and footsteps. I’m very underwhelmed at this feature.The build quality and controls are mostly very good. The controls are laid out well and after a day of use will become second nature. The voice prompts are annoying though, especially switching to the open mic setting. This allows you to hear the outside world without taking the headphones off. Having to wait for the voice prompt to tell me “Open Mic On” is just taking up time. If I switch to that setting, I want to hear the outside world NOW. My other beef with the controls is the volume ring. It’s loose enough that when you turn your head, you hear the plastic parts tapping together. These would easily be a five star product if the noise cancellation worked better. I think Plantronics is on the right track and getting close to perfection. If these are in your budget but the more expensive alternatives are not, then you’ll most likely be pleased with them. Just know that these do not have the nearly magical noise reduction of the more expensive alternatives. You still get great sounding headphones with excellent battery life that sport intuitive controls.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great Sound, Less Great Appearance (See Pics)I adore this product! The sound quality is fantastic, they're easy to use, and the noise cancelling works wonderfully. I have used these on flights, in crowded cities, etc, and I was extremely pleased with the performance. The actual audio part of these headphones cannot be beaten.However, I am sorely disappointed with how the cups have held up. You can see in the pictures I added that the fabric around the ear cushions disintegrated fairly easily; this started just a few months after purchase and worsened from there. Now I don't like using them anymore because I get small black flakes of cushion in my hair. If there were another cover for the cups sold separately I would be happy to buy it, because the audio really is worth it. Sadly, until then, I likely won't be using these anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ecolson from It Doesn't work great when you are on a phone call.Headset is pretty good in audio quality, but it is not working great when i'm using it for a phone call. I Don't know if my mic has a problem or every one else has the same problem that i'm facing Noise-cancellation is good feature.
