“Your first great pair of headphones is something special – it’s an extension of your style, and a constant companion that provides the soundtrack to your life. These days, more and more consumers are choosing to ditch the cord for the first time, but aren’t willing to make any compromises,” said Greg Miller, director of Portfolio Business Management at Plantronics. “BackBeat 500 Series is that perfect first pair of over-the-head wireless headphones, offering the longest listening time in its price range, along with premium design touches and Plantronics signature high-quality audio.”

Whether you’re racing to class or sitting in a packed coffee shop, BackBeat 500 Series brings your music to life without weighing you down. It features 40 mm drivers and a bass tube design for deep, rich sound. Comfortable memory foam ear cushions help isolate sound, while on-ear controls provide easy access for calls and music. Take calls with a wideband-enabled mic and access Siri, Google Now, or Cortana straight from the headphones.

Additional BackBeat 500 features:

  • Stream up to 10 m/33 ft. from compatible smartphones and tablets with Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.
  • Ear cups rotate to lay flat for compact storage in a bag or backpack.
  • DeepSleep hibernation mode helps maintain battery charge for up to six months when your headphones are out of range or left on.
  • The 3.5 mm jack and included analog cable can be plugged in as backup without disrupting your listening experience.
  • Automatically connect up to two devices simultaneously and pair up to a total of eight devices.
  • Bluetooth set up to pair your device is quick and easy with a few simple steps.
