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