I've had mine for about three months. At first I liked it a lot, but two problems have cropped up, and I'll soon be replacing this with another brand/model. #1: I usually keep these in my pocket, and often, when I take them out, the rubber earpieces fall off. It's easy to put them back on, but that shouldn't happen. (This never happened with other headsets I've used.) #2: There's no strain-relief where the wires connect to the remote, nor where the wires connect to the plug. After just three months of use, the wires have become loose at both spots, exposing the inside wiring and leading to unwanted "clicks" of the remote.

Doesn't work with Kyocera Kona Flip Phone

By 

from San Francisco, CA

Comments about Plantronics BackBeat 216 Stereo Headphones With Mic:

Plantronics recommended this unit. I returned the headset as it did not work, at all, with my Kona flip phone. Bad recommendation. It might be fine for an Iphone, but not my flip phone. Volume control did not work, and the microphone did not work so the caller could not hear my responses.

So Rad!

Comments about Plantronics BackBeat 216 Stereo Headphones With Mic:

A friend got me a pair of these and I love them. The sound quality is awesome and they stay in my ears when I skate. They also are great at blocking out outside noise.

Bright light headphones

Comments about Plantronics BackBeat 216 Stereo Headphones With Mic:

Silicone ear buds great for latex sensitive individuals! The ear buds are not contoured so they do not stay in the ears...pop out during routine activity

Backbeat 216

By 

from Santa Rosa, CA, United States

Comments about Plantronics BackBeat 216 Stereo Headphones With Mic:

I purchased this item a couple of years ago. While it delivers excellent quality sound, after about a year or so, the shielding that covers the copper wiring began to buckle, exposing the inner wiring. Additionally, the wiring became exposed at the point where the plug connects to a device. I have a replacement unit now and I hope the problem has been solved.
