Plantronics BackBeat Pro review: The Bluetooth headphones look plain, but they deliver lots of extras

Sarah Jacobsson Purewal | Sept. 16, 2015
What these headphones lack in style they make up for in nifty features.

The BackBeat Pros have a lot going for them: excellent sound, tons of features, intuitive controls, and a price tag that often doesn’t even get you active noise cancelation. One feature that I found to be a little over-hyped was the Class 1 Bluetooth. Class 1 Bluetooth lets you maintain a connection from up to 100 meters away, but this only works if both devices have Class 1 Bluetooth. Because most smartphones and music players only have Class 2 Bluetooth (10 meter range), most users will find this feature useless.
