Please note that I paid for these headphones. I hardly ever write good reviews, but on this occasion I wanted to because of the trouble I have had trying to find a great pair of wireless sport headphones.
For the last month I have been bought three other cheaper pairs of bluetooth in ear and around the ear sport headphones from Amazon. Within 10 minutes of opening the packaging and trying them on and just shaking my head and jogging on the spot I knew they were not fit for purpose and this includes alternating the different ear buds to try and get a better fit. They all just fell out and were useless!
The Plantronics BackBeat FIT bluetooth headphones have been a revelation! They look and feel like a well made product and the buttons are easy to use. The loop at the back does not get in the way if I am laying down on a bench in the gym (as they are flexible) and, most importantly for me, the headphones wrap around my ear really well and won't fall out no matter how violently I shake my head. You hardly notice they are there.
The sound quality is very good as well. I know some people have complained that the in ear bits don't have buds and so don't stick right in your ear (there is a work-around for this as you can apparently attach buds from other earphones on to them to help with this fit). Still, this isn't an issue for me as, without going all the way in to my ear, the quality of sound is still very good. I'm at the gym - as long as the music quality is good and the headphones stay on without me having to adjust them to stay in place, which I didn't have to do once with these, then that is all that matters in my opinion. 10/10 - thanks Plantronics, my search for a top pair of Bluetooth sport headphones is now over.
