The Plantronics Backbeat Fit 305 is an exciting new headphone option that is very lightweight and comfortable, yet still sturdy and durable. It has Bluetooth connectivity, an excellent battery life, and a noise-canceling built-in microphone. The Fit 305 works for cycling, walking, or lifting; however, many runners have reported that the bulky inline remote was no fun to run with. And the fact that the headphones seal out noise so effectively actually becomes more of a detriment—the noise-canceling properties could make things dangerous. But the headphones have plenty of good points, they’re sweat- and water-resistant, the battery charge lasts for even longer than Plantronics advertises, and the sound quality offers a great balance between the bass response and the upper frequencies.
