Travel Gadget Review - Plantronics BackBeat Bluetooth Headphones

Travel Gadget Review - Plantronics BackBeat Bluetooth Headphones

Disclosure: I purchased this product for my own use. I am reviewing it on my own initiative and my opinions are my own. I am not being compensated for this review.

I have been going back and forth about wireless headphones for a few months, probably ever since I had iPhone 5S and loaded it up with music. Though once I got the iPhone 6 with much more memory, I have been considering it a lot more. I research most of my gadgets decisions and same goes for this purchase. Some of the wireless headphone on the market have strange designs or headpieces. I also wanted one that could withstand daily use during a city commute, occasional jog, and would not have to take off in the rain.
My search resulted in these, and with a sale (currently 30% Off), I made the jump:

These headphones have easily accessible on-ear controls let you keep moving while you control your music or calls. BackBeat FIT continues to function through rain, sweat, and even the splash of a drink. Headset battery meter automatically displays onscreen for iPhone when it is connected. Plus every time they turn on, they let you know if the battery level is high, medium, or low. You can wirelessly update your BackBeat FIT using a free smartphone app. No connection to a computer or internet is needed to use the actual app. Moreover, the app has a Find MyHeadset feature, similar to Find My iPhone, that would help you locate your headset if it is misplaced.
Why good to have on a trip:
- Waterproof, sweatproof
- Long battery life - around 8 hours
- Easy to charge via USB cable or with USB travel USB charger adapter
- Flexible earbuds and band - can be folded to fit into pouch or pocket
- Receive and answer calls via headphones
- Adjust volume and playback all from the headphones without taking out your phone
- GPS type of tracker to find headphones if they go missing

It looks like a wand but it is actually an antenna. Antenna that can keep you connected even in the most secluded parts of your travel.
GoTenna is a device that lets users create their own virtual network on which they can communicate with friends and family. It connects to your phone via BluetoothLE. You will have to keep it within a certain range (20 feet) of your phone for it work well. The average range for the connection to work is around 2-4 miles. You would use GoTenna's app to type out a text message or share a location. Your smartphone will send the message to your GoTenna, which will then shoot it out, via long-range radio waves. The app also offers free offline maps and full messaging capabilities.

awesome design for travel
We got caught in a downpour while in Mykonos greek islands. Thankfully, we did have rain gear with us, which was a couple of ponchos. Though as anyone who ever used them knows, they can be quite cumbersome to put on. They stick and when they get wet its hard to put them on or takeoff. This backpack is an awesome design for travel and those situations.  with pull out jacket is a great concept for those times.

Its summer time, the sun is out and time to lie down and get a tan while listening to music or reading and web surfing, but you run low on batteries on your device. There is now a great solution - a solar bikini.  It is covered with solar panels. These panels provide current similar to that of a USB drive on a laptop, that will provide power for iPods and other devices. The bikini will cost upwards of $1,000 and the inventor says that he is working on a version for males that will cool off beer.
