Sponsored Review #1: Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Wireless Earbuds

 photo PB010017_zpsdd53cfe3.jpg

As you all know may know by now, I love music (gotta emphasise the love here haha). Good music puts me in a happy place, which is why I enjoy going to gigs/concerts so much. Cos not only do I get to see and watch my favourite artist/band perform live, I also get to dance and sing with others who enjoy the same music too. It's quite an amazing feeling really. And some of these strangers, are now my friends! Music truly does bring people together and that's one of the things I love about music too.

So, of course it's important that I own a good pair of earphones. What's the point of good music when you're listening to them with crappy ones? With crappy ones, you won't be able to hear the sexy, groovy sound of the bass; the oomph and punch from the drums; the crisp sound of the guitars; all the other instruments and how well the mixing/arrangement is done. Basically, you won't be able to hear how good the track really is. (provided it's good to begin with la haha)

Which is why, I want to introduce to you guys, the Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Wireless Earbuds!

Now, this pair of earbuds are slightly different from your usual earphones. How so?

This is the portable charging case, which comes in a very nifty size!

This case allows you to charge and protect your earphones. The striking black and red colours make it easy for you to locate it in your bag. (for me especially because I love roomy bags, and sometimes it can be hard to find the smaller stuff in bags like that haha)

I'll show you how this case charges the earbuds in my next Plantronics post, so look out for that! ;)

And yes it isn't very long, so no excess wire length!

All snug and comfy in my ears! Yay to having no annoying wires hanging in front of me, which means it wouldn't get in the way of whatever I'm doing. I've ever had the wires of my earphones getting caught in someone's bag on the train/bus and/or having it yanked out of my ears at the same time. And then, doing that awkward and hasty attempt at unhooking it from said person's bag before the train door closes. :/

This post is just gonna be a teaser on what the Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 Wireless Earbuds is about. Look out for my next post because I will be telling you more about them and also, why these earbuds make such a fantastic audio companion. :)

  1. Hi Shanice,
    Just want to confirm, is it really has 14.5 hours listening time for music player?
    Cause I check on Plantronic website, they only claim it has 4.5 hours listening time
