BackBeat FIT 3100 is a true wireless headset for “sports professionals”, because of its unique, solid design and 15-minute fast charging technology that adds an hour of convenient music listening.
Regarding design, the first “impression” is probably the appearance of the case (charging box) for BackBeat FIT 3100 , it is designed in the form of a zipper, not a magnet like many other companies are doing. In terms of uniqueness, this approach is really quite impressive, and the zipper also helps keep the headphones inside the box more secure, it will be difficult to accidentally fall off the headset.
LED strips for status notification and connection reset are located between the positions of the 2 headsets. There is a small inconvenience of this design that when charging, you can not actively monitor the full charge of the battery for the case, forcing you to open the case yourself to check, a bit troublesome.

Users can actively change the function of this button if in BackBeat application is available on Google Play and App Store .

Speaking quickly about the sound quality, Plantronics BackBeat FIT 3100 is a headset for sports and ear-tip design is not completely soundproof, so the bass of the headset is pushed up by the manufacturer. Bass will create more emotions when practicing more, vibrant and passionate but much bass also encroaches on other bands such as mid and treble.

The Plantronics BackBeat FIT 3100 headset pair has a battery life of about 4.5 hours, and the charging case can be fully charged for 2 more uses. This is not too long, as some of the more advanced sports headphones can provide up to 6 or 7 hours of operation.
In fact, no one practices sport continuously for 4-5 hours a day, so the 4.5 hours of BackBeat FIT 3100 is enough to use or even have leftovers.
