Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100 (2019) review

 

Even if they don't reach the same heights that some of the more premium entries in the category do, I get the sense that the BackBeat 5100 are probably going to sound good enough for most people.

Snappy design ; Good battery life ; Competitive price

Not very isolating ; Plastic feel

Plantronics' BackBeat Pro (review): The value alternative to Bose QuietComfort 35

 

Don't want to pay big bucks for a 'premium' wireless noise-canceling headphone? The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 may be your best bet.

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 sounds very good for a Bluetooth headphone, is comfortable to wear and offers decent noise cancellation and strong battery life. It performs very well as headset for making cell phone calls, includes a carrying pouch, and...

While the design has been improved, the headphone is still a little heavy and its aesthetics may not appeal to everyone; noise-canceling isn't quite as effective as Bose's.

The BackBeat Pro 2 is an excellent full-size wireless noise-cancelling headphone that costs nearly half as much as comparable models from Bose, Sony or Sennheiser.

Plantronics BackBeat Pro (review): A more affordable alternative to Beats and Bose with an office slant

 

The BackBeat Pro may not be the sexiest looking headphones, but they sound decent, are comfortable and include noise-canceling to help you shut out unwanted office chatter.

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro features both wireless Bluetooth and noise-canceling in a sturdy, comfortable design. The headphones sound decent, are packed with features, have excellent battery life and come with a nice carrying pouch.

Design has a little too much of an office vibe to it; fairly heavy at 360 grams; bass and treble may be a little too hyped for some people.

Despite some small drawbacks, the feature-packed Plantronics BackBeat Pro is an intriguing option for those looking for a wireless headphone with active noise-cancelling.

Review: Plantronics BackBeat Pro headphones

 

Headphones that cut out the noise from the outside world generally require you to be tethered to your phone, but not a new pair of cans from Plantronics, as the company brings its expertise with wireless audio technology to the field of big headphones.

Wired and wireless, it's your choice; Controls on the side of each ear are very easy to remember and get used to; Tactile volume control; Supports active noise cancellation; Includes Near-Field Communication; Supports aptX and high-resolution audio...

Big; A retro look that not all might go for; Headphone controls don't work when cable is used;
