Santa Cruz, Calif. – April 6, 2016 – Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a pioneer in audio and wearable technology, today unveiled BackBeat GO 3: wireless stereo earbuds designed from the ground up, and ear out, to provide stunning audio quality and sound performance. BackBeat GO 3 delivers vivid, high-res sound from a small, portable form factor that is as attractive as it is comfortable to wear – setting a new standard for what people should expect from wireless earbuds. BackBeat GO 3 is available in the US in April and will be available worldwide in May 2016.
“For many people music is an essential part of life: a way to energize, focus, escape and be inspired. With BackBeat GO 3, we’re providing the performance your music deserves,” said Lori Langona, director of consumer marketing, Plantronics. “Cutting the cord no longer means compromising on audio quality. BackBeat GO 3 delivers a groundbreaking audio experience unmatched by anything else in its category, all wirelessly.”
When it comes to music, people simply don’t like to compromise. The vivid, high-resolution audio delivered by BackBeat GO 3 lets users go wireless without losing audio fidelity. Every millimeter of BackBeat GO 3 was designed purposefully – from the custom speaker drivers to the precision tuning of the sound – to deliver a best-in-class listening experience. Six-millimeter drivers in each BackBeat GO 3 earbud result in a wider sound stage and range of frequencies to deliver natural sound and perfectly balanced highs and lows.
In addition, the discreet and stylish BackBeat GO 3 lets people control their music and their calls, without rummaging around for their phone. Skipping tracks, adjusting the volume, activating Siri or Google Now, even taking a call, can all be done with a touch of the inline controls. Designed to seal in sound and block out noise, BackBeat GO 3 includes three different size earbuds to ensure a comfortable, stable fit that stays put on the go, while giving you up to 6.5 hours of listening time on a single charge.
Additional BackBeat GO 3 technologies and benefits include:
- Vivid, high-resolution audio provided by Plantronics custom drivers and proprietary audio codec lets you hear music the way the producer intended, with texture and richness not previously possible from Bluetooth® earbuds.
- Sweat-proof protection from Plantronics exclusive P2i nano-coating means the music keeps going even in humid conditions, a sprint to make the train, or a light rain.
- Convenient charging case (available with some models) gives you up to 13 extra hours of listening – two full back-up charges—from its built-in, rechargeable battery.
