Plantronics aims to fuel your workout with music

Plantronics announced the launch of two new additions to its BackBeat FIT family, the company’s portfolio of wireless sports headphones.

The new products include the BackBeat FIT 305 and BackBeat FIT 505, which are designed to meet various wearing styles and help inspire any athlete wherever they are on their fitness journey. 

Delivering quality and performance, the new BackBeat FIT 305 and 505 also include the features that Plantronics headphones are known for, comfort, stability and durability.

Peter Petrides, Plantronics director of consumer sales says, “Today’s consumers are looking for wireless listening solutions that can accommodate their particular workout style or level.

“Our new, extended BackBeat FIT sports portfolio offers a variety of options in wearing style from in-ear, to over-the-ear and sweatproof, so that users can enjoy their active lifestyle in varying environments and keep motivated.”

The BackBeat FIT 305, one of the world’s lightest Bluetooth headphones, is designed to easily transition between fitness and everyday life. 

The wireless earbuds offer a discreet, ultra-light, portable and sweatproof design that stays comfortably stable and blocks out unwanted gym noise. 

The low friction cloth cable, six hours of battery life and a patent-pending, secure-fit ear tip design make the BackBeat FIT 305 a perfect match for both active and everyday use while still providing an immersive listening experience.

The BackBeat FIT 505 is for those who enjoy being active and are looking to enter the world of on-ear wireless headphones. 

The headphones provide an immersive experience before, during and after a workout, up to 18 hours of battery life, protection against sweat and comfortable memory foam earcups that block out the noise and help users focus on deep, rich sound.

Plantronics aims to create intelligent and adaptive solutions that support customers’ most important needs, experiencing and facilitating simple and clear communications while enjoying distraction-free environments. 

Their solutions are used worldwide by consumers and businesses alike and are an optimal choice for open office environments.

Both BackBeat FIT 305 and BackBeat FIT 505/BackBeat 505 are available for purchase now.
