Plantronics Announces BackBeat PRO

Plantronics announced BackBeat PRO, wireless active noise-cancelling headphones with battery power to outlast the playlist. The latest addition to its award-winning BackBeat stereo product family, the over-the-ear BackBeat PRO headphones offer Plantronics signature audio performance and design for all-day wearing comfort at home, in the office, and on the go. Bluetooth wireless freedom cuts the cord, and advanced active noise-cancellation (ANC) technology minimizes background sounds so one can fully immerse yourself in the music. BackBeat PRO is available now in the US and will be available worldwide starting October 2014. Host a personal concert for one, even in a noisy office or a busy flight, with BackBeat PRO headphones' signature rich, brilliant audio and advanced active noise-cancellation technology. Using a unique dual-mic solution, the headphones draw in background noise and eliminate it, tuning out external sounds and resulting in clear, life-like audio. Alternatively, if one wants to hear what is going on around you, with a touch of a button the adjustable OpenMic feature pushes the music to the background and amplifies environmental sounds; have a conversation with a coworker, listen for the boarding call, or answer a fellow commuter without having to remove the headphones. Plantronics innovation in power management gives the BackBeat PRO up to 24 hours of listening time on a single charge, and an included 3.5mm cable serves as a backup, allowing to plug in and keep enjoying the music in the unlikely event that one run out of battery. Used alone, its active noise-cancellation is capable of eliminating background noise for up to 60 hours -- enough to tune out airplane noise on a flight around the world. BackBeat PRO is always ready for action, with up to 21 days of standby power, and up to 6 months in DeepSleep hibernation. Additional features include: Uncompromising audio performance: With 40mm dynamic drivers and Plantronics signature audio technologies, BackBeat PRO delivers rich bass, crisp highs, and natural midtones so one hears the nuances of each instrument and voice; Unleash the music: Advanced Bluetooth technology lets one stream music from up to 330 ft/100m1 away from the smartphone or tablet, well beyond the usual 33 ft/10m; Truly "smart" headphones: Sensors on BackBeat PRO automatically pause the music when the headphones are removed and resumes when put them back on, and will unobtrusively whisper updates on connection status, battery life, incoming calls and more; Make music anywhere: The exceptional ergonomic design and portability (with fold-flat earcups and durable nylon travel sleeve) makes BackBeat PRO ideal for all-day use wherever life takes you; Clear communication: From phone calls to voice applications such as Siri(TM) and Skype, BackBeat PRO dual-mics directly on the headphones enable clear communication on smartphones and tablets for mobile professionals; Works seamlessly with mobile devices: BackBeat PRO features NFC pairing with Android devices, and one can easily move from listening to music on the smartphone to watching videos on the tablet with multi-device Bluetooth connectivity.
