Plantronics BackBeat 903+ Bluetooth headphones review

The BackBeat 903+ is a set of Bluetooth headphones that make an immediate impression. They can be considered contemporary and sleek or big, bulky hearing aid wannabe’s.

The style straight out of the box is subject to opinion, but slip the earpieces over the ear and opinion changes. They sit comfortably and securely on the ear and in the ear helping to eliminate a lot of external noise.

The right earpiece boasts all the music controls, while the opposite earpiece boasts the call button. The relative controls are on the outside of the earpieces and are not the easiest to operate. They are small and not immediately instinctive. However, after using the units for a while the operations become second nature.

Getting connected, via an iPhone, was quick, simple and straightforward. Plus, a neat battery level indicator icon appears on the iPhone giving a quick visual on headphone power.

Primarily the Plantronics are a set of headphones for music playback. The default sound output is strong and there is a bass boost to give the audio an extra kick. The headphones switch seamlessly to incoming calls and the sound, while not as sharp as music playback, is perfectly acceptable for a conversation.

      I struggled with these headphones for three months, finally got sick of all the problems with them and returned them to Amazon.
      Would not charge, would not pair, intermittent sound drop out and if you have small ears, after a while, very painful. Went back to using wired ones and have had a much better experience, cheaper too.
