Plantronics Backbeat Fit 2 – Bluetooth headphones

Now, I like music.  I like working out to music. Whether it be pop, rock, rap, RnB, Classical, Country (unless they are singing about their girlfriends leaving them and taking their dogs) or reggae, I will listen to it all and I find that corded earphones just don’t cut it when I am trying to throw tin around in my local gym or pretending I am Eliud Kipchoge by hitting the streets (while listening to beats….see what I did there).

Enter Backbeat Fit 2

These things are just cool. With a range of funky colours available, I have found them to be stable and comfortable while doing a variety of vigorous activities – running, sprinting, box jumps, even burpees (I know, burpees are the most horrible exercise ever invented, but probably the best for testing earphones) didn’t see them budge at all and I was able to continue listening to Taylor Swift as she urged me to “Shake it off“.


I sweat.  I sweat a lot while exercising.  It’s gross. It’s wet. It’s human, get over it.  But does it affect my Backbeat Fit headphones?  No.  Apparently, these bad boys are sweat-proof.  Not waterproof though, so I can be blasting “Wrecking ball” while jumping into a swimming pool.

She cannae take it captain! We need more power!

Surely even Elon Musk would be impressed by the staying power of these headphones.  Almost as if you have your own personal Energizer bunny drumming away inside, keeping them charged, you’ll have “Power” to keep running and listening to whatever you want for 8 or so hours.

You may have guessed from how enamored I am with these headphones that I like them.  Yes, I bloody well do.  I have purchased numerous Bluetooth headphones over the years.  Some were uncomfortable (seemingly crafted for ears that would belong on Roald Dahl’s BFG), were unstable (constantly falling out), lasted for approximately 5 reps of the first exercise after a warm-up at the gym or could not be heard when making a phone call – I even owned one pair that would disconnect when my phone was in my pocket (the effective range being approximately 40 cm).

My Backbeat Fit’s?  No problems at all.
