Don't listen to the comment about the ANC, the ANC on theses headphones almost got me killed by my mother, she spent 10 minutes screaming for me, did not hear a thing, love theses headphones to bits

This is a month usage review of these headphones, and before I had it as a 4 star and I have to change it to a 5 star. Despite the slight ear pressure around the ears, the sound of these are simply fantastic. The bass response is the clearest, deepest and smoothest room filling effect I have ever heard. I thought my JBL S400BT's were amazing, but these Plantronics knock them out of the park. These headphones are for bass heavy listeners, not for clear or flat sound listeners. I cannot recommend these headphones enough, especially being R3k cheaper than a pair of Bose QC35's.

Amazing sound, battery life, comfort and BT range. Very comfortable and not too heavy. Noise cancelling works well enough for office and travel purposes. Hands free calling is a bit weird, but works fine if you get used to it. Can also connect to multiple devices at once.

Don't listen to the review above about no ANC. The noise cancelling on these is fantastic and you can check multiple reviews on line to confirm that. Definitely the best headphones for the price. Alternatively spend 8k on the Bose QC but they have shorter battery life and worse bass.

Absolutely perfect compete with the top headphones for half the price, and amazing delivery.

I have only had the headset for 2 days and I must say that I am impressed. It is still early to say anything with regard to durability. The headset does however look well built. The sound is crisp and I'm also happy with the bass, it is not overwhelming, just what I want.

I could not be more in love with these headphones. The battery lasts forever, they are comfy to wear for hours and hours at a time, the sound is very impressive and the noise cancelling does the job - you can still hear outside noises if you listen for them but they are generally muted enough not to be distracting. I use them for sitting on the couch reading while my hubby watches TV.

The sound quality is absolutely outstanding compared to any wired connection, even though this runs through Bluetooth. Crisp mid-range and high-range, and deep and thick low range capabilities!

I have a massive issue with music playback though, in that it keeps making choppy and cracking sounds and dips in playback every 15 to 60 minutes, which is insanely frustrating (and often breaks concentration when used for work/studies). I have tried on 2 different phones, 2 different laptops and a desktop, all give the same issue. I had the headphones replaced for a new unit, and this one does the same thing. If this issue wasn't present, it would be a no-brain 5-star from me, no doubt!

All that being said, it is super comfortable, and battery life is abundantly long, which is excellent. Keys and controls on the cans are also really simple and handy. In fact, it is so comfortable and good, especially with the long battery life, that I am thinking of just learning to ignore the problem I have so as to not have to give these headphones up.

In terms of Active Noise Cancellation, I would not say that it drowns out all sound, you can still hear stuff around you to some extent, if they are fairly loud and directed towards you, and some high-pitch sounds may come through, but it is definitely noticeable in effect, and does drown out the vast majority of background noise.

All in all, I would highly recommend these if you have this kind of cash flow, but would definitely point out the issue mentioned above.

Fantastic sound Quality. For some they may be a little heavy on the bass side but I listen to a fair amount of EDM so its all good.

Active Noise Canceling is not great at all. I got these to replace my Samsung Level Overs and the noise canceling on there is probably 5x better.

Ignoring the terrible noise cancellation, this is a great set of headphones with amazing battery life.

Go for it. Get them.

I have had these headphones for 6 months now. They are amazing, brilliant sound quality, good anc and they just feel really good. They also have a great battery life 24 hours

Overall 9/10.

I've owned the first BackBeat PROs and I didn't think they could improve on much but these headphones far outperformed the older model in both aesthetics, design and audio quality.

The ANC works very well (Tested it against multiple sources of environmental noise e.g. airplane flights) so I'm not sure what the first reviewer is referring to when he says it doesn't work.

Sidenote - The return policy and handling of Plantronics products through headset solutions is magnificent to say the least.

Fantastic headphones in every way!
Great styling and finishing. The carry bag that comes with it is very well made and super soft on the inside to protect the headphones. The active noise cancelling works well even when no music is playing, and the microphone option allows for hearing the conversation in the room without removing the headphones which is great in an office environment. Very comfortable to wear, even with glasses on. Amazing battery life, lasts a full week using them at work almost constantly. Can't fault them

Great product.

Great value. Great service

Awesome!! Comfortable, ANC works extremely well, all round winner.

I enjoy these headphones, they work really well, much better then most

Great value for money!

Awesome product, simple to setup and use! The sound generated is incredible and have certainly found a place in my travel bag. Noise cancelling is key for flying and this does the trick!

I have been using these for a few months now so I can safely say they are fantastic! Battery life is looooong, comfort is great and they sound very very good. Everytime I put them on, I just enjoy my music all over again. And because they have a decent amount of base, they are great for watching movies on my laptop or 24 incher. For the money, you simply cannot go wrong with these.

dont waiste your money if you're looking for ANC!!!! no difference being on or off!!!

Excellent battery life. Good price for the product. Bluetooth can sometimes do some funky things. Comfortable. ANC is good, especially noticeable on a plane. Not the sexiest looking headphones though.

A quick foreword: I am basing my review off of the 24 hours or so that I have had the headset and with comparisons made to the Backbeat Pro first gen, which my partner owns.

Build: The build quality, design aesthetics and overall feel of the headset has vastly improved from the very plastic-feeling first gen. It is more sleek than its obnoxiously bulky predecessor.

Comfort: The more sleek design does have a drawback, being comfort. The elliptical shape of the ear cups (versus perfectly round on the 1st gen) and the suede-like finish on the cushion around the headband leave me tugging at the headset after relatively short sessions, mostly due to the head cushions slightly tugging at my hair. Neither of this is present in the first gen, though it is slightly heavier. The comfort issues are not severe enough to think less of the device, however.

The battery life of both devices are fantastic, but on paper the second gen trumps the 1st gen (I haven't charged mine since taking it out the box and it still has "high" battery according to the voice prompt after many hours of listening to music, watching movies and gaming).

Sound: Last but not least, the sound has been greatly improved. The ANC (which makes a noticable white noise when activated) of the 1st gen caused a dampening of the low end, and the entire headset feels more muffled and flat, whereas this headset has fixed those issues entirely, with sound being crisp and clear, even with ANC activated.

Overall this was a fantastic buy and the headset comes highly recommended.

Very good headset, amazing sound, noise cancelling works good and amazing battery. I'm very satisfied with this product. Maybe bose is slightly better, but they are almost double the price!

Overall happy with my purchase.

Very good

Awesome headset. Good sound and 24 hour battery life.

These are Amazing!!!! Great sound quality, Great Build quality, feature rich, Super comfortable!

The quality on these headphones are absolutely superb. Great bass with mind blowing highs and mids. Would recommend this.

Good value for price
