​Plantronics BackBeat Fit 300 Review: Wireless, Sweatproof, Sport Earbuds

Posted on 20 October 2017 Tags: Exercise, Feature, Wearable Tech

Plantronics has introduced a new set of headphones called the BackBeat Fit 300, which they claim that it is the world’s lightest Bluetooth headphones ever. According to them, you can easily use them during your fitness routines and when you are done with it you can enjoy them much like any other headphones.


The BackBeat Fit 300 headphones are design simple and plain with integrated loops and are a bit oval in shape, to perfectly fit your ear canals. The fit is quite snug and firm, which means you can easily perform your morning cycling or jogging routine and not worry about having to continuously adjust the headphones.

They are designed to isolate the noise in a way that it covers the ear canal. I tested them during my normal and tough fitness exercises and I found them to be really secure, they didn’t come off the ears easily.

The headphones have a pretty nice sound, the bass quality is above-par and the music you listen to is delivery with clarity and zero-distortion. The brand can easily compete with Beats X, which is more pricier than the BackBeat Fit 300. The battery life on the headphones is reasonable enough, it can last up to six hours, which is not great, but not bad either. I really didn’t like the inline remote; its slightly bulky and takes away the feeling of being an ultra-light headphone set. The inline remote contains the battery and USB charging port.

The inline microphone won’t disappoint you either. While jogging I answered few calls and the receiver did not complain of any background noise even though I was jogging in a rather crowded park.

I think the BackBeat Fit 300 is good for recreational use. It does somehow cancels ambient noises, providing you with a much clearer and crisp sound experience.


If you are really on a tight budget, but want to enjoy a crisp and bass-riddles music listening experience, it is a good idea to opt for the BackBeat Fit 300. You can get them under $80.
