If you can excuse the Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2s for the small hiccups — and you should (as most pertain to their physical build rather than performance) — this purchase could very well help you be more productive in the workplace and more zen on your commute home. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better middle-tier ANC headphone on the market right now that checks as many boxes.

A traveler’s best friend

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 offer insane battery life, great sound quality and good active noise cancellation for the price. It may not offer the best noise cancellation in the segment but they’re an undeniably good value for what you’re getting.

RTINGS

Versatile headphones for most use cases

from RTINGS

They have a solid and durable design, an excellent wireless range and battery life and they sound balanced enough for most casual and even more critical listeners. However, they're a bit bulky for working out and only have an average isolation despite being noise canceling headphones.

What Hi-Fi

Decent price and plenty of features, but unchecked bass drags the sound down

The Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2s are cheaper than their perceived rivals, and have the benefit of extra features that many will appreciate. However, the Backbeats’ positive sound characteristics are dragged down by unchecked bass and, ultimately, that spoils the sound.

Active noise cancellation on a budget

from TechHive

Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 can be had for $150 less than Bose’s class-leading QC35 ANC headphones. But their low price comes at a cost of audio fidelity and middling build quality. If this is a trade-off you can live with, they could be a great travel or commuting companion.

Solid great-sounding deal worth checking out

from Pickr

Thanks to the use of Bluetooth multipoint and the jump between paired devices, the open mic mode to let you hear the outside world, and the automatic pausing when you take the headphones off, the BackBeat Pro 2 reveal themselves to be a stellar value, and an absolute bargain at $299.

Brilliant audio from the Bluetooth king

from Pocket-lint

As an overall package, the Plantronics have a lot to offer. Despite the plastic build, the BackBeat Pro 2 feel well made and are very comfortable to wear, even for extended periods. Combined with the brilliant range of features, ease of use and overall decent audio quality, they're a very good pair of headphones.

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 wireless noise-cancelling headphones are a very good pair of headphones, that lasts ages between charges, have good controls, solid active noise cancelling and a sound profile that will please many. They’re comfortable to wear for prolonged listening and have some nice touches such as auto-pause-play when you remove them from your head. But those looking for balanced sound and the very best in noise blocking should look else where.

Another masterful blend of good looks and sound

from HardwareZone

It handles all genres of music well, is comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time, and has a great 24-hour battery life to boot. You won't get the last word in clarity with these headphones, but for just S$319 you’ll be hard pressed to find better sounding headphones that offer the same feature set.
