Plantronics out with BackBeat Go 2 Bluetooth stereo earbuds

Techstination feature for Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Plantronics improves on its Bluetooth stereo earbuds.  I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   They are smaller, lighter, more comfortable and produce impressive sound.   And the BackBeat Go 2 Bluetooth earbuds from Plantronics are also designed to be sweat and moisture resistant.     Senior category manager Greg Miller…

“So with the BackBeat Go 2, we really focused on miniaturization, really providing an earbud solution, but really cutting the cord giving the user the ability to, whether it be exercise, whether it be walking, commuting, relaxing, streaming video from a tablet or their mobile phone.   The ability to do it wirelessly.”

The size and comfort really are key here.  Battery life is adequate but not great.  That can be solved by purchasing it bundled with a charging case for about a hundred dollars.   You can find us with archives, interviews and more at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
