5 out of 5 eggsMy Favorite BT Headset

Pros: All day battery; excellent volume; A3DP; full-featured, including a bass-bost setting

Cons: I did not like the included tips and found adapting a pair of stepped silicone earbud tips helped both sound and fit. After about 2 years of use, the rubber on one ear just disintegrated. I used electrical tape and wrapped it up. Looks ghetto, still works great!

Other Thoughts: I own more than six BT headsets including the BackbeatGo. I like these the best. The backbeatGO volume at max is no where near what this pair can put out.
If you like bass, there is a settting for bass boost, read the instructions carefullly. There is a mute function as well.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for Work

Pros: I work in construction and have put my headset through some tough wear, broken the adjusting extensions and super glued them fixed and unmovable. These things are pretty tough, I can answer my phone while on a ladder with both hands occupied with my shoulder. Jam out to music when I want. Voice commands and button functions work great, never have to take my phone out from it's holster, noise cancel from wind works great. Battery life is awesome one charge last me the whole work day. Very comfortable have fallen asleep with them on not realizing. They work as a hearing aid when you pause your music to help hear the person better, yet you can still hear very well with them on. The cone ear piece injects the sound so no need to force them in your ear.

Cons: May be a little heavy for some people. Cuts music in/out if you jog with phone in your pocket. Need to have the shoulder phone strap.

5 out of 5 eggsGood product

Pros: The Plantronic Backbeat 903+ Bluetooth Headset are great item for the price. The sound quality is above average and has a nice base. It may have 5 buttons but each with multiple functionalities. Each button has 2 options. Most Bluetooth devices as well as iphones will work with these. They have around 8 hours of battery life (even though it advertised at 7) and the recharge time from dead to full is around 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Cons: 1. The Plantronic Backbeat 903+ Bluetooth Headset has a fixed rubberized ear loop which may not align with your ear canal.

2. These headsets are not water resistance, so sweat or swimming must be avoided at all cost.

Other Thoughts: I do recommend these headphones to everyone that are looking to a bluetooth enable headphones. Call quality is very impressive and loud both in-coming and out going calls. The battery life is ideal for those that want to use it for music on the go. It is advertised to be 7 hours of continuis usage and in my experiensed closed to or over 8 hour mark which is impressive for the time it was released. These headset have tracking, volume controls, pause and play as well as calling and ignore call options. the only downside I have encounter with these particular device is that the ear loop may not place the speaker directly on to your hear canal like most ear buds does, however do to it rubber earbit having a peace sticking out it rest by your ear, so you can listen to your music. You still will listen to background noise (not noise cancelling) so might have to raise the volume up to ignore most ambient noises. Overall if you are on a drive, at an office or anywhere that noise isn't an issue these are great. If you are planning to jogging around, sweat or be near water I urge you to avoid it. I do admit they do hold in place and often forget they are even on as they are very light and comfortable to wear.

3 out of 5 eggsListen to the Reviews

Pros: Works as intended and sound quality is decent.

Cons: Range is not good on the headset and any form of sweat will cause them to stop working.

Other Thoughts: I bought these to workout with and read the reviews. I should have listened to the reviews of the product. The first time I worked out with the headset, it stopped working. Apparently the headset really does not like any sweat at all. If you do use them for workout and they stop working you will need to plug them into a computer (not the wall charger) while holding the power/pairing button to hopefully get them reset. The other bad thing about the headset is that if you place your phone in your pocket, the sound will cut out on you. If you place the phone on a table in an open room, the range is pretty decent. Final thoughts on this is you get what you pay for!!!

4 out of 5 eggsNice Stereo Headset for the price

Pros: The audio quality when listening to music or audio books is excellent.
Also not very expensive.

Cons: The headset has issues maintaining connection to the transmitting device when in motion unless its kept within 2 ft. The audio for calls gives feedback but only when I talk.

Other Thoughts: I Purchased this thinking it was the same as a headset I had recently tried at a friends house. Turns out though that his was a 906 model. The audio quality for listening to music is the same. But, the call quality in this model is not anywhere near that of the 906. The connection issue doesn't really bother me because I keep my phone in my shirt pocket most of the time. I gave minus one egg for the call quality but that doesn't bother much either because I bought this primarily to listen to books and music while i work.

4 out of 5 eggsI like these headphones.

Pros: These headphones are pretty comfortable, Ive never had a behind/over the ear set of headphones before and I really like the style. The battery stays powered up for a good amount of time (never had it run out on me) and I love having no cords!

I use it for music at the gym.

Cons: A little pricey but I knew that going in.

I have occassionally used these headphones to watch netflix while on long drives. I had trouble hearing the dialogue on Breaking Bad. I am using an Iphone 5 Verizone in a 4G LTE area.

Let me be clear, I have an insanely LOUD car with tires that are extra loud and seem to be made for loud. I only have problems when Im traveling at high speeds. I think if you have a normal car it won't be a problem and I can't say for sure it's these headphones.

1 out of 5 eggsDo NOT buy these!

Pros: Look good. Light weight.

Cons: completely worthless pieces of junk! The maintain a solid audio signal if you keep them right next to the device and keep the device absolutely still.

I went on a jog with my device in my pocket of paper thin nylon shorts, they couldnt maintain a signal longer than 3 seconds. I then tried to hold my device in my hand while running, just the slight movement of my hand broke the signal on every step. I could force it to maintain the signal if I held my device up and absolutely steady while I jogged. Complete worthless pieces of junk!!

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY!!

2 out of 5 eggsNot impressed...

Pros: Solid build quality. Easily accessible support.

Cons: Terrible battery life, mediocre sound quality, lots of noise interference.

Other Thoughts: I never leave reviews, but having owned several pairs of bluetooth headphones I felt it my duty to report that these are by far the worst. I bought these to replace a pair of Motorola S9's that I had for two years and absolutely loved. These had excellent reviews and a similar feature set so I thought I would give them a try. My first complaint is the battery life. I followed all the protocols for charging and initial use and I've never once got more than 4.5 hours of playtime at 50% volume. That would be acceptable if I felt like the sound quality was worth the drain. However I find that the sound on these is really disappointing. Absolutely no bass, even with the boost feature enabled. The sound does stay very clean at high volumes, but I find that the treble is too high and tracks come off as tinny and hollow. Also, they are not designed to fit snugly into your ears so there is a ton of outside noise interference. Walking on a busy street you'll have to crank the volume up to 100% just to hear things. I listen to podcasts and radio shows all day at work and so I ended up having to buy a backup headset just to make it through the day given the terrible battery life on these. I settled on the Kinivo BTH220 because they were on sale for $21. Those were soooo much better than these that I felt it necessary to leave this review. I routinely get 12 hours of listening time on those and the sound quality is far superior. Do yourself a favor and buy two of those rather than wasting your time with the Backbeat 903+.
