Plantronics has just announced its latest wireless headphones, designed for those with an active lifestyle. The Plantronics BackBeat FIT combines comfort and stereo sound in a lightweight headset. Bluetooth wireless does away with the mess of cords, allowing greater freedom and focus on fitness and one’s workout.

Plantronics BackBeat FIT caseThere are a number of sporty headsets available out there, but Plantronics takes the BackBeat FIT to the next level by incorporating all the best features in one.

The BackBeat FIT features a sweatproof headband that is flexible yet strong. Work out as hard as you want, and the headphones will keep up with you.

In addition to the wireless connectivity, on-ear controls, and a built-in microphone for hands-free phone conversations, Plantronics has added some safety features too. The BackBeat FIT is designed with bright colors and reflective materials, increasing visibility whenever the sun is low. The eartips also allow outside noise to be heard, so people can stay aware of hazards or traffic around them.

The included case doubles as a smartphone armband, which is large enough to fit a gadget along with a vehicle key. If you have a smaller phone, you might be able to tuck a photo ID or some cash in there too. If all that weren’t enough, the Plantronics BackBeat FIT will be able to upgrade its firmware so users will always have the best version available to them.

The BackBeat FIT will be available starting April 2014 in choice of Lime Burst and Electric Blue.
