What customers say about "Features"
Plantronics Backbeat Fit 500 (210701-99) Headset - Teal
  • They work with every Bluetooth device I've tried, pairing is also pretty reliable.
  • They do seem pretty sweat resistant and are pretty easy to clean.
  • I love these! I recently started running a lot and needed something that was wireless, would stay in place, and could handle my sweat.
  • I like these for traveling bc they are sweat/water resistant and can take a beating.
  • Not foldable - I thought foldable is the golden standard. It sucks not to be able to fold it.

  • The controls themselves are high quality, they feel good and work well.
  • I've got mine connected to more than one device and it switches between them with no problems. I haven't had a single drop-out in the month I've been using them.
  • Its ability to pair with multiple devices is seamless and you can be listening to music on one device, answer a call on another, and after the call your music will continue.
  • Good fit, allows connection to 2 devices which is hand when watching something on a tablet and your phone rings.
  • As soon as I put the phone in my pocket, the connection immediately disappears.
