Review: Plantronics BackBeat Go2

$159 (earphones only); $199 (earphones with charging and storage case)

If you hate untangling your earphone cables, try the new Plantronics BackBeat Go 2.

It connects to your smartphone or tablet wirelessly via Bluetooth for listening to music and taking phone calls.

It has a nano coating that protects the earbuds against rain, perspiration and even coffee spills.

Its inline control makes it easy for you to take calls and adjust volume. The earphones come with three eartips sizes, so you can find one that you are most comfortable with.

The BackBeat Go 2 has a battery life of about 4.5hours of listening time. However, using the portable charging and storage case, which provides two additional charges, will triple the battery life of the earphones.
