Altec Lansing Backbeat Pro Earphones Review
10 July 2009
Summary: For $99 I was pleased with the Altec Lansing Backbeat Pro earphones. The neoprene case and extra ear tips make it a nice package. The earphones don't overextend themselves and provide a pleasing sound that is surprisingly full and rich for in-ear models. Their bass is slightly over-accented, but it's not what I would consider to be boomy. To the contrary, music just sounds... well, enjoyable.
Pros: Light, Comfortable, Great bass response, Detailed midrange
Cons: Significant cord noise, Truncated high frequency response
Excerpt: In recent years, there has been a tendency for the media to lambaste earbud headphones because they can damage hearing, as they sit further away from the ear canal, causing the user to turn up the volume more. In ear headphones (also called canalphones) are one answer to this, and today we look at a pair, the Altec Lansing BackBeat Pro. How do they stack up to the popular Etymotic Research ER-6i or V-Moda Vibe earphones? Read on to find out.
Pros: Comfortable., Fairly affordable.
Cons: Bad bass response., No foam earpieces are included.
