Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 + Charging Case
With its second-generation BackBeat Go headphones, Plantronics has improved the sound quality while adding sweat resistance. Battery life remains relatively short, which is why it's a good idea to get the model with the charging case bundled in for 20 bucks more.
The good: The lightweight, reasonably priced Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 wireless stereo headset improves upon the Go 1, with better sound quality and a sweatproof design, The step-up BackBeat Go 2 + Charging Case includes a protective case that has a built-in battery for charging on the go.
The bad: Battery life isn't great (4.5 hours), so the inclusion of the Charging Case is an important extra.
The bottom line: 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.
