Plantronics debuts BackBeat Go 2 wireless sport earbuds
By Phil Dzikiy | 07.23.13

Plantronics has launched its BackBeat Go 2 stereo earbuds ($80). The lightweight, wireless Bluetooth earbuds feature listening time up to 4.5 hours or talk time of up to 5 hours with the included microphone. Plantronics’ DeepSleep hibernation mode keeps the BackBeat Go 2 earbuds charged and ready for use for up to six months. The BackBeat Go 2 is also sweatproof for moisture protection.


The earbuds feature an iOS-ready battery status meter, and voice prompts that alert users about remaining charge and device pairings. Three eartip sizes are included. An alternate version sold for $100 includes a charging case, capable of adding an hour of listening time after only 20 minutes of charging, in addition to offering up to 14.5 hours of listening time when fully charged. BackBeat Go 2 is available now in black or white.

i wonder how these compare to JayBird BlueBuds X. I’ve had JayBirds before and loved them. My last pair went through the wash so now I need another set of wireless headphones for the gym/running. These are $70 cheaper. Would not buy without the charger so I’d be getting the $99 headphones.
