Plantronics announce two additions to wireless sport earphone range

31 Oct 2017

Audio and wearable technology company Plantronics today 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.

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

“Today’s consumers are looking for wireless listening solutions that can accommodate their particular workout style or level,” says Peter Petrides, Plantronics Australia and New Zealand national retail sales manager.

 “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 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.

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 ear cups that block out noise and help users focus on deep, rich sound.

The BackBeat FIT 305 is available November in four colours – black/grey, dark blue/blue, grey/lime green and grey/coral at JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman, Rebel Sport and Officeworks for $129.95 AUD.
