Expert Reviews

Decent for mixed usage. The Plantronics BackBeat Go 810 have great audio reproduction that is versatile for all types of music. Unfortunately, their ANC feature isn’t impressive and won’t be great for commuting, but can be passable if you play your music at higher volumes due to their low leakage. Also, they have a comfortable and stable build for sports, but you might sweat a bit more than usual. They are a decent option for the office, as they do okay at isolating ambient chatter and their battery will last you long enough for a workday. However, like most Bluetooth headphones, they won’t be great for watching TV and gaming because of their high latency.
