It's a love/hate relationship with earbuds. Some people have great luck with them. Other people can never get that tight fit. Plantronics hopes to change this relationship by creating the revamped BackBeat earbuds.

The BackBeat Go 2 earbuds are tighter, sound better, and are all-around great. If you're looking for earbuds that do it all, these come highly recommended.

All About the BackBeat Go 2 Earbuds

Plantronics has created something the company is calling 'P2i moisture-protection technology.' This technology makes it possible to work out with these earbuds without worrying about moisture, water, or sweat damage. But - and here's the really cool thing - these earbuds can also be worn in the rain without concern. Thanks to the moisture technology, no amount of moisture will ruin the BackBeat Go 2 earbuds.

Moisture technology aside, the BackBeat Go 2 earbuds also come with a better handset that just makes a lot more sense than most heandset/earbud combos on the market. Instead of placing some kind of tiny rocket on the handset, Plantronics has added actual plus and minus buttons, so you can change settings just by feeling the handset. Plantronics has also made it possible to leave your earbuds alone for a few months without worrying about losing a battery charge.

Deep Sleep Hibernation Mode

If you don't plan to use your earbuds for six months, you don't have to worry about draining your batter with the new Plantronics earbuds. These earbuds can hold a battery charge for up to six months while in Deep Sleep Hibernation Mode. That's a pretty decent amount of time for earbuds to hold a charge.

So, how do the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 earbuds sound? As well as you might expect from earbuds with this many upgrades and features. Plantronics has managed to create solid earbuds that actually sound great too. These earbuds have a 6mm third-generation speaker that makes bass sound fantastic, but you do have to make sure that your buds are securely locked inside of your ears to hear that sound. Should you buy these earbuds over other options?

Overall Impressions

While most earbuds fall very short of sounding great or being stacked with features, the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 earbuds please all around. These earbuds look great, include that amazing moisture-proof technology, and sound fantastic. Are these earbuds recommended? Absolutely. How much will you pay to purchase some of the best buds on the market?

The BackBeat Go 2 earbuds are a bit on the pricey side at $79.99. You can find cheaper earbuds out there, but these are really a notch above the rest. If you can find a way to test them out before you buy, that's an even better idea. But, if you can't, you can trust me when I say that these earbuds will please anyone on the go that enjoys the feel and look of earbuds over larger studio cans.

You can find the new Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 earbuds on the Plantronics site, in select stores, and through online retailers like Amazon.
