Plantronics, a noted headphone manufacturer, has launched BackBeat Go 2, its new generation earbuds. These Bluetooth earbuds allow users not only to listen to songs but also to receive calls.
The Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 comes with an innovative charging case, which allows you to charge the Bluetooth earbuds anytime and anywhere. However, for the charging case you have to shell out Rs 1,000 more, otherwise it comes in black and white colours for Rs 4,990.
As per Plantronics, the BackBeat Go 2 has P2i military grade nano coating that protects the earbuds against sweat, moisture and spills. It has a very smallish profile so you can easily keep it in your pockets while the tangle free cable protects it from damage. Moreover, it has three types of ear cushions â€“ small, mid and large.
With full charge, as per Plantronics, the earbuds provide 4-5 hours of music playback and 5 hours of talktime.
