FLAT NOTE

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

Plantron­ics lat­est of­fer­ing, the Back­Beat Go, is aimed at mu­sic lovers and has stun­ning looks.

The con­nect­ing wire be­tween the left and the right ear buds has a small con­trol mod­ule. Along with the vol­ume con­trols, there is a small key for call­ing. Paired eas­ily with most smart­phones, this head­set is easy to op­er­ate.

While play­ing mu­sic, the head­phones of­fered a de­cent ex­pe­ri­ence, but the bass was lack­ing. Shock­ingly, the voice wasn’t clear while talk­ing over the head­set. Many com­plained that our voice was not au­di­ble and it felt as if we are talk­ing over a speak­er­phone, not a head­phone.

Com­fort­able to wear over long du­ra­tions, the Back­Beat Go comes with two pairs of ear buds that can be changed any­time. The shar­ing time is around two and half hours. It stays alive for close to four hours.

BAG IT OR JUNK IT?

Looks good, sounds bad.
