PLANTRONICS Backbeat S903 Bluetooth Headset

Martin G., Newegg
19 January 2011
  • Summary: Yes it works, but does cut in and out when your phone is 4 feet away... So yes if you are wearing the head set and the phone is in your pant side pocket if will feel as though you have a cd player and its being tossed around. Sweat proof it is NOT..

Decent design with flaws

Krystian Z., Newegg
27 July 2010
  • Pros: Great concept of a flexible cable going on the back of the neck. Compact. Good for working out. Playback/phone controls. Good weight distribution - weight rests mostly on top of the ears instead of somewhere behind the neck like with Motorola S9. This makes them good for working out. Adjustment o...
  • Cons: Earbud size - too big, keeps coming out. My ears ended up bleeding from constant shifting of the ear buds. Not sweat-proof as often advertised. My set ended up just turning off after 30 minutes despite having full charge. If not used during workout they last much longer. Coworker's set started ac...

Great sound, not very strong

Anonymous, Newegg
20 May 2010
  • Summary: If you want these to listen to music and talk on the phone these headphones have amazing sound clarity. However if you plan on working out they may not be for you as they will more than likely stop working once a drop of sweat hits them.
  • Pros: Very nice sound quality, comfortable design, easy pairing.
  • Cons: Do not like any amount of sweat. Buttons completely stopped working within 30 minutes of cardio.

AVOID

Austin S., Newegg
18 February 2010
  • Summary: I didn't test with my Ipod, and I'm glad I didn't drop the $40 for the adapter. These are going back to newegg and I'll settle for a wired solution. Bluetooth has a long way to go before this becomes satisfactory or viable.
  • Pros: Form factor, light and comfortable to wear.
  • Cons: I was very disappointed by this product. 1) Sound quality was poor. These headphones sound marginally better than a $20 pair of Sonys. I own some $50 Altec Lansing wired buds, and they have much more depth to the sound. These sound hollow and overdriven. 2) Bluetooth connection to my computer was...

Giving it another chance

Anonymous, Newegg
4 November 2009
  • Pros: Pairs flawlessly and easily with the Pre All controls work great and are pretty intuitive. Fits well and sound is pretty good. Very comfortable. Callers said I sounded okay......at least on the one phone call I received while owning them. Haven't tried them outside yet.
  • Cons: I used this device about two days totaling approximately 2 hours and then they died. Maybe they're not designed for athletic use. First time I used them with music only and were fine. Second time I was on the spinning bike watching a movie on the Pre. Controls wouldn't work after about 1/2 hour o...

I take back my previous review

Matt T., Newegg
21 June 2009
  • Summary: The new iPhone 3.0 software may have some bluetooth issues, but since I've only tried this one headset, I'm gonna have to try another brand to see if that's the real issue.
  • Pros: Newegg's shipping rocks! And they are taking these back without an issue.
  • Cons: Initially I thought these were gonna work out good with the iPhone 3.0 software. But now that I've actually had a chance to use them, I've found that if I take my phone even 2 feet away from the headset, it cuts out or just drops the bluetooth connection. This may be more of an issue with the iPh...

Definitely not the product I was expecting.

Visakh Vignesh, Amazon
4 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought these headphones with great expectation and a lot of hope for uninterrupted music during my workouts. And that's exactly the only area where I was disappointed. The Bluetooth connectivity is pathetic. I lost signal frequently while running on the treadmill or working on the cross-trainer.

Problemas de apagado aleatorios.

Pinchos, amazon.es
11 November 2014
  • Summary: Antes de nada, dar un 10 al servicio post-venta de Amazon. Me he puesto en contacto con ellos y se han ofrecido al reembolso o a mandarme unos auriculares nuevos, a pesar de haber pasado más de 1 mes desde la recepción del artículo (me han mandado unos nuevos, tal como he solicitado).
