Is there a special person in your life that likes to run? I have the perfect holiday gift for them! Enter: Plantronics Backbeat FIT.

As a runner, I find headphones to be one of the most annoying running accessories. The ear buds often fall out of place, the cord gets caught on my arm, and if I drop my phone you can bet those suckers are going to be ripped out of my ears. Ouch! That's why, when I was offered the chance to try these Backbeat FIT wireless headphones, I was ALL ABOUT IT. That being said, there are some pros and cons about this product.

PROS:
They're wireless! This prevents some of the issues mentioned above.

I can set my music, podcast, or audiobook on my phone and not have to touch my phone again until the run is over because they have easy to access controls on the headset. I love that I can adjust the volume or song without having to pull out my cellphone.

They're lightweight. A must!

The backbeat FIT are completely waterproof and even come with a waterproof case for your phone. No more worries about sweat or rain damage!

The battery lasts up to 8 hours. I have used them a number of times since I got them and still haven't had to recharge.

They have an around the ear feature which makes sure they stay in place.

CONS:
This one is more a con of my ears instead of the headphones but I have really small ears so it was pretty hard for me to find the right fit at first. However, the ear pieces are adjustable.

Again, probably a personal problem, but I have found that my ears start to hurt if I wear them too long.

They block out more noise than I would like, but I think that's personal preference. I tend to run with the volume down and that helps. 


Overall, I would highly recommend these headphones for runners. Especially those who have headphone problems like I did.
