Back­beat pro

If you’re go­ing wire­less, th­ese cans will be mu­sic to your ears

Mac Format - - RATED -

I am a clumsy, clumsy man. Dropped plates and knocked over cups are a reg­u­lar oc­cur­rence in my life, while it’s safe to say that MagSafe was an ab­so­lute god­send for me. So when it comes to head­phones, go­ing wire­less was a no brainer, for rea­sons of per­sonal safety if noth­ing else.

The Plantron­ics Back­beat Pro head­phones are a top choice, and not just be­cause they won our group test back in MF288 (and de­servedly so). The sound qual­ity re­ally is su­perb and the Blue­tooth sig­nal is ex­cel­lent, so you can am­ble around your house in a sonic reverie with­out fear of dropped con­nec­tions.

The clever on-ear con­trols feel to­tally nat­u­ral and are very quick to grasp – turn the right ear­piece to ad­just vol­ume, the left ear­piece to skip tracks or push in the left ear­piece to play and pause songs. Sim­ple.

Aside from th­ese nifty fea­tures, the bat­tery life of th­ese ’phones is sim­ply stu­pen­dous. I use mine on my hour-long com­mute ev­ery day, and they last al­most three weeks of solid use with­out need­ing a charge. And you won’t mind keep­ing them on for hours at a time either, as th­ese are some se­ri­ously comfy cans.

So, if you’re look­ing for some wire­less mu­si­cal manna, the Back­beat Pros hit all the right notes.
