Singapore – December 11, 2017 – Plantronics, a pioneer in audio and wearable technology, today announced the launch of two new additions to its award-winning BackBeat FIT Family; the company’s portfolio of wireless sport headphones. The new products include the BackBeat FIT 305 and BackBeat FIT 505, which are designed to meet various wearing styles and help inspire any athlete wherever they are on their fitness journey. Delivering Plantronics’ signature audio quality and performance, the new BackBeat FIT 305 and 505 also include the features that Plantronics headphones are known for: comfort, stability and durability.
“Today’s consumers are looking for wireless listening solutions that can accommodate their particular workout style or level,” said Peter Petrides, Director of Consumer Sales, South East Asia at Plantronics. “Our new, extended BackBeat FIT sport portfolio offers a variety of options in wearing style from in-ear, to over-the-ear and sweatproof, so that users can enjoy their active lifestyle in varying environments and keep motivated.”
The BackBeat FIT 305, one of the world’s lightest Bluetooth® headphones, is designed to easily transition between fitness and everyday life. The wireless earbuds offer a discreet, ultra-light, portable and sweatproof design that stays comfortably stable and blocks out unwanted gym noise.
