Plantronics announces new 300 and 500 Series headphones range, partnership with PEAR


Plantronics has extended its range of wireless sport headphones and announced a new partnership with the PEAR personal coach app.

New products include the BackBeat FIT 300 Series, the BackBeat FIT 500 Series, as well as the BackBeat FIT Training Edition and BackBeat FIT Boost Edition.

The BackBeat FIT 300 Series wireless earbuds offer an ultra-light, portable and sweat-proof design with six hours of battery life and secure-fit ear tip design while the BackBeat FIT 500 Series provide up to 18 hours of battery life, protection against sweat and memory foam earcups designed to block out noise.

What’s more, a new partnership with PEAR Personal Coach App means users can now take their workout to the next level by bringing together wireless freedom and ultimate stability with interactive, on-demand coaching with the BackBeat FIT Training Edition and BackBeat FIT Boost Edition

According to the National Federation of Professional Trainers, an experienced trainer can cost upwards of £40-£50 an hour, making PEAR Personal Coaching App an ideal complement to the Plantronics BackBeat FIT, claims the manufacturer.

Led by renowned coaches such as Andrew Kastor, elite Olympic coach, and his wife Deena Kastor, Olympian and world-record runner as well as author and triathlete coach Matt Dixon, users will have unlimited access to 12 workouts and six-month access to the entire PEAR workout library.

Says Greg Miller, director, Portfolio Business Management at Plantronics:

“The BackBeat FIT Family provides a variety of styles and features designed with sport in mind.

“There’s a sweat-protected, stable and comfortable pair of BackBeat FIT headphones that’s right for any level of fitness – whether you’re looking for a dedicated sport headphone with on-demand coaching, or just want something comfortable and stylish to wear throughout the day.”

The BackBeat FIT 300 Series will be available towards the end of October in four colours (black/grey, dark blue/blue, grey/lime green and grey/coral) and in select retailers for £89.99.
