Plantronics has unveiled the BackBeat SENSE–its latest smart wireless headphones that combines lightweight materials, best-in-class Bluetooth battery life, smart sensors and signature Plantronics audio. The newest member of the BackBeat family is available now for MYR729.00.
How smart are your headphones?
Built-in smart sensors in the BackBeat SENSE detect if you’ve slipped off your headphones and pauses your music. This preserves battery life without you thinking about it. When you put them back on, your tunes gently fade back in.
Intelligent pairing helps make connecting and switching between devices fast and seamless, including pairing two devices simultaneously. Built-in is Advanced Class 1 Bluetooth which lets you control up to two connected smartphones or tablets from up to 100m away.
The BackBeat SENSE delivers important updates on battery life, connection status and more via voice alerts.

Speaking about voice, dual mics enable HD Voice communication–clear calls and voice activated services like Siri, Google Now, Cortana and Skype.
Controls like volume and power are conveniently placed in one earcup making it easier to use.
In terms of battery life, you’ll be able to stream music and media for up to 18 hours on a single charge.
What’s really cool is the unique, patent-pending headband that I’ve seen and experienced with the Voyager Focus UC–the first wireless stereo UC headset with active noise cancellation. The headband is designed to comfortably fit 99% of head sizes and ensures all-day wearing comfort.
A fold-flat earcup design lets you easily store and transport your headphone. There’s even a durable pouch for you to carry your headphone and audio cables.
The BackBeat SENSE doesn’t just look good, it’s also incredibly light. At 140g, it’s about the same weight of a smartphone, and approximately 50% lighter than most on-ear Bluetooth headphones today.
Pillow-soft memory foam ear pads fit your ears like a glove, sealing audio in ear, and also reducing outside audio interference.
Pricing and availability
BackBeat SENSE is available in two styles–Black/Espresso and White/Tan. It retails for MYR729.00.
