Design

1.has stereo speakers
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
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 903+
Resistance to sweat makes it ideal for use while doing sports.
3.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
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.
5.is dustproof and water-resistant
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
6.has an in-ear form
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
7.has a tangle free cable
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The cable is designed to minimize tangling.
8.cable length

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
9.Has a coil cable
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
A coil cable offers more flexibility, as it can be further extended when in use, as well as retracted to take up less space when not in use.

Sound quality

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.
2.has passive noise reduction
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The device sits tightly in place, creating an acoustic seal which reduces background noise and prevents your music from leaking out.
The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
4.has a neodymium magnet
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
Devices with neodymium magnets are lighter and more powerful than those which use ferrite magnets. They also have more bass and clear high notes.
The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
The driver unit is the component that produces sound in the device. Bigger drivers are more powerful and can produce better bass.
Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
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.
9.diaphragm size

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The diaphragm moves air back and forth to create sound. The bigger the diaphragm, the more bass it can produce.

Microphone

1.has a noise-canceling microphone
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
These microphones are designed to filter out background noise from the desired sound. Especially useful in noisy environments.
More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
3.Has a wind noise reduction microphone
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
A wind noise reduction microphone is designed to reduce wind interference, providing sharper audio in windy situations.
4.mic sensitivity

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

It's the 'loudness' of the sound that the microphone can pick up.
5.lowest mic frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The lowest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording bass.
6.highest mic frequency

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The highest frequency that the mic can pick up. Better for recording treble.
7.has a removable microphone
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The microphone can be attached or detached if necessary.

Power

1.Battery life

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The device's battery life (when in use) as given by the manufacturer. With a longer battery life you have to charge the device less often.
2.has a rechargeable battery
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
3.has a battery level indicator
Plantronics BackBeat 903+

4.charge time

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The time it takes to fully charge the battery.
5.has wireless charging
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
It supports a wireless charging standard such as Qi. To charge the device, you simply put it down on a compatible charging pad.
6.battery power

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

Battery power, or battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy that a battery can store. More battery power can be an indication of longer battery life.
7.Battery life of charging case

Unknown. Help us by suggesting a value.

The battery life of the charging case as given by the manufacturer. A charging case with a longer battery life allows you to recharge your headphones on the go multiple times before having to recharge the case itself.
8.has a removable battery
Plantronics BackBeat 903+
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
