    Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 – True Wireless Sport (Review)

    The Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100 are true wireless sports headphones that allow you to get your workout done truly free of any wires at all. These launched in the fall and since then I’ve taken these bad boys for a couple of spins and here’s the tea on them! Style/Design I have to admit I wasn’t excited when I saw similar ear tips to the BackBeat Fit model but these were actually softer and sit nicer in the earlobe.
