Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.
2.sweat resistance
Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weight

11.6g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
5.travel bag is included

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

20Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

20000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.has passive noise reduction

The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
4.has active noise cancellation (noise control)
Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100
This type of device allows you to listen at lower volume levels, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. Ideal for plane rides and morning commutes.
5.sound pressure level

94dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
6.impedance

16 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.
