Excellent wireless earbuds for the gym

from GeekSpin

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 are one of the best gym headphones around thanks to their water-proof design, secure fit, all-day comfort, and “stay aware” safety design. Since ambient noise is not always appreciated, we’d emphasize while these are amongst the best gym headphones out there, they aren’t the best everyday headphones.

A stiffer fit and tougher build, but at the expense of booming playback

from TechRadar

If you're a runner who actively enjoys hearing background noise while wearing earbuds, the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 is a perfect fit for you. If any part of that sentence doesn't ring true, or if you want a pair of earbuds that focus more on audio quality, you should consider something else.

Excellent durability for athletes, plagued by connection problems and poor sound quality

from Macworld

Despite their sturdy build quality and the amount of situational awareness they afford, I can’t recommend the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100. Their sub-par battery life and spotty connectivity are impossible to ignore.

A comfortable, secure pair of totally wireless headphones that is ideal for exercise

Completely wire-free, these in-ear headphones have ear hooks that are easy to adjust and ensure the earbuds stay put during use.

Completely wire-free, these in-ear headphones have ear hooks that are easy to adjust and ensure the earbuds stay put during use. They're sweat and waterproof too, which makes them perfect whether you're exercising indoors or outdoors. Admittedly, we found the bass was overbearing sometimes, but they're a great buy if you want a pair of earphones for workouts.

The Plantronics BackBeat FIT 3100 earphones are ideal for those who want respectable sound while they’re working out, but also wish to retain situational awareness. That is, they want to be able to hear approaching traffic. Another advantage of this system is that if you simply pause the music, you can hear what people are saying pretty well as clearly as if you were wearing no earbuds. No need to pull them out.

A nice pair of workout earbuds for the gym

from G Style Magazine

I like the design of the PLT 3100s with its various color palettes and reflective panels on each bud. Battery life on them with the occupied case is a plus especially for truly wireless earbuds.

I like the design of the PLT 3100s with its various color palettes and reflective panels on each bud. Battery life on them with the occupied case is a plus especially for truly wireless earbuds. My two major gripes just would be I wanted more thump out of them especially using the PLT 410s and the Bluetooth connections could be better resulting in less cut out of audio.

Poor audio balance

Take it to the pool or the streets

from Android Authority

Swimmers and runners in the market for true wireless earbuds should consider the Plantronics BackBeat 3100. Adorned with flat, holographic panels, the earbuds are as functional as they are eye-catching. While connectivity could be improved, it's par for the course with true wireless technology.

If you're a swimmer or runner who also happens to be a die-hard true wireless fanboy, then the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 is a great choice. The attractive flat panels on each earbud are functional and the ear hook design promotes a stable fit. Although connectivity isn't as reliable as we'd like it's par for the course when it comes to truly wireless tech and can be overlooked.
