Plantronics BackBeat 903+ Review

For those who love listening to music while doing their usual rounds of jogging or workout, the Plantronics BackBeat 903+ may be a good option to consider when looking for Bluetooth headphones.

 

The Plantronics BackBeat 903+ is visually unappealing. Looking at the two earpieces which are connected through a cable, it seems quite chunky. Also, it feels a little awkward when you are wearing glasses. However, as a Bluetooth earphone, it does meet audio expectations. Despite being unattractive, the Plantronics BackBeat 903+ lets you adjust it for better comfort. The earpiece itself, the ear buds, and the silicone are flexible. The earpiece on the right side has the play and pause button for control over your audio preference.

 

The left earpiece on the other hand features the call button. Near the edge of the Plantronics BackBeat 903+, you will find the Power button along with dual-function buttons. The dual-function buttons are for lowering the volume or otherwise, and for skipping from one track to another. You just have to tap the dual-function button once if it’s the volume you want to change, and tap it twice if you are going for the skip track. The Plantronics BackBeat 903+ also sports a micro-USB port for charging. It is located behind the tiny rubber cover hence indistinct.

 

The call button works under a tap system just like the dual-function buttons. You only have to tap it once for calling or ending a call, and twice for last call redial. It is also notable how the play or pause button automatically activates the earphones’ bass boost feature when you press it for two seconds. The Plantronics BackBeat 903+ Bluetooth boasts of a good 10m range. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about running low on battery without your knowledge as the earphones provide the necessary voice alerts.

 

It only needs three hours for charging, and it can last for up to seven hours of talk time or playing music. However, it does not provide an AC adapter; hence, there is no alternative for the micro-USB port for charging. The two distinct features of the Plantronics BackBeat 903+ are the dual mics and the unique digital signal processing; the latter allows you to make calls when situated in busy environments. Regarding the audio, the Plantronics BackBeat 903+ undoubtedly gives a good value for money.

 

At its price point, its audio quality is considerably superb. It can even compete as the best among its competitors. It works pretty decent upon phone calls, and does a better job at streaming music. The open mic feature can pause playback to make way for ambient sounds. This means that you do not need to remove it from your ears if you have to talk to someone. However, it is still quite lacking in terms of support.

  • The Good :
    Affordable, Lightweight, Good Sound Quality, Comfortable
  • The Bad :
    Subpar Call Quality, Can Be Fiddly Hooking Them Over The Ears, Doesn’t Fit All
Our score:
4 / 5
