Plantronics BackBeat Go 600 review
Sounds useful for the cash, and comfortable as well
The Good / The Plantronics BackBeat Go 600 are lightweight, agreeable over-ear Bluetooth earphones that sound respectable and function admirably to make calls. You can flip between more nonpartisan or bass-helped sound modes.
The Bad / Bass does not have a little definition. The earcups can demonstrate scratches.
The Bottom Line / Don’t expect a “goodness” from the lightweight, agreeable Plantronics BackBeat 600, however they’re as great or superior to anything a considerable measure of earphones in this value extend.
A year ago Plantronics put out reasonable remote on-ear earphones called the BackBeat 500 Series that sounded average and fit easily – for an on-ear show at any rate. Presently the organization has conveyed a similar esteem idea to an over-ear outline with the BackBeat Go 600, which costs $100 or £90 and comes in four unique hues. (We’re anticipating Australian evaluating, however £90 is about AU$130 changed over.)
They feel like premium shoddy earphones, which sounds like an interesting expression, however I’m adhering to it. They appear to be genuinely tough and have some metal in the headband for additional robustness. The plastic complete on the earcups, be that as it may, will indicate scratches after some time in case you’re not watchful.
They overlap level, which is great, and slip into a thin, nearly paper-like conveying pocket. A line for tuning in wired mode is likewise included.
While the list of capabilities is pretty nitty gritty – there’s no dynamic commotion dropping, for instance – the BackBeat Go 600 has two evening out modes. You can substitute between Bass Boost and Balanced with the press of a catch. It is anything but a colossal distinction, yet Bass Boost gives you somewhat more. It’s additionally simple to skip tracks forward and back utilizing the controls on the left earcup, where you’ll likewise discover volume controls and the USB charging port.
I thought they sounded very useful at the cost. They’re more open sounding than the on-ear BackBeat 500 and have a lot of clearness with sufficient however not overwhelming bass (in Balanced mode). In both listening modes I thought the bass did not have a little definition – all the more so in Bass Boost mode – and by and large the earphones aren’t exactly as understandable, dynamic or rich sounding as higher end models. So they’re great, yet not that great.
As you may anticipate from Plantronics earphones they do function admirably to make calls, in spite of the fact that they don’t have a sidetone include that enables you to hear your voice in the earphones as you talk. Battery life is great at around 18 hours at medium volume levels.
For the cash, I loved these earphones a considerable measure. They’re lightweight, agreeable to wear, sound better than average and function admirably to make calls. They didn’t overwhelm me, however they’re as great or superior to anything a considerable measure of remote earphones in this value go.
