The Bottom Line There's a lot to like about the BackBeat Go wireless stereo headset, but some notable shortcomings temper our enthusiasm. The inclusion of a charging case as part of this bundle helps the excellent Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 overcome its one serious weakness: short battery life. While its short battery life keeps it from true greatness, the Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 is a superior wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphone. The Jaybird BlueBuds X are impressively small wireless sports earphones that offer a secure fit -- but the $170 price just feels too high. The Plantronics BackBeat 903+ certainly has more features than its predecessor, but the rest of the design suffers from the same problems.
