Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 slimmed down Bluetooth headphones

Techstination feature for Tuesday, November 15, 2016

The latest slimmed down Bluetooth headphones from Plantronics.   I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.    Plantronics is out with the BackBeat Pro 2…noise cancelling over the ear Bluetooth headphones that look good, sound very good and are priced at 200 dollars.  That’s well below others in this class.   And one of the biggest improvements is in comfort with the new model significantly smaller than its predecessor.   The company’s Greg Miller…

“So what we did is we were able to reduce the overall size of this product by 35 percent.  As well as 15 percent in weight.”

On top of that…the battery life for the BackBeat Pro 2 is a whopping 24 hours.   There is also a sensor that pauses music when you take the headphones off…and resumes playing when you slip them back on.    The design is impressive too…as is the performance of Class One Bluetooth…which increases the connection range to about 300 feet.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
