Plantronics, a brand fairly known for their audio products is back in the Malaysian market, and introducing not one, not two, but five new products that will grace your ears soon.

First up, we have the BackBeat FIT 3100, a pair of wireless earbuds that slots into your ears effortlessly. Weighing at just 22g and IP57 rated, meaning that the buds will be safe when you are running and it suddenly rains. The earbuds can also last up to 5 hours per full charge, but you can charge it with the carrying case for extra 10 hours. According to Plantronics, just 15 minutes of charge allows you to use the earbuds for an hour.
We were then introduced to the BackBeat FIT 2100, also a pair of wireless earbuds but with a neckband to keep it secure along your neck, without fear of dropping. The headphones as previously are wireless and lightweight, and IP57 rated as well, and with a full charge, they can last up to 7 hours, giving you more than enough time to workout even in the gym our outside.
The last product introduced in the FIT family is the BackBeat FIT 350. It is also a pair of wireless sport earbuds that comes with a neckband with a clip at the back to keep it secure. The earbuds are IP5X rated, meaning that dust, sweat and rain will not be an issue for the earbuds. A full charge allows the buds to last up to 6 hours, and it comes packed with Noise Isolation capabilities too. And if you’re at the gym and dislike the music they’re playing, simply plug in the FIT 350 and drown the noise out with your own hype music.
Next up, new to the GO range, the BackBeat GO 410, also a pair of wireless sport earbuds that comes packaged with a neck band as well to prevent them from sliding off when you are jogging or working out. It has Active Noise Cancelling built into the earbuds so you can immerse yourself in your music no matter where you are. Even with ANC on, the earbuds can last up to 8 hours.
Lastly, we have the BackBeat GO 810, and unlike the rest is a pair of wireless headphones that will fit snugly and comfortably on your ears. Although heavier than the rest of today’s entries, it is still a pair of lightweight headphones, weighing at just 189 g. Similar to the 410, it has ANC capabilities that will drown out the outside world, and using its 40mm drivers, can deliver powerful and immersive music to your ears. You can also switch up the EQ on the headphones to give your bass more oomph, or raise the volume of vocals. Even with ANC on, Plantronics mentioned that the headphones will last up to 22 hours on a full charge.
