Plantronics Backbeat Pro


Price: $249.99

Listening Time: 24 hours

The coolest, most unique feature here is that these headphones have a sensor that powers down and pauses your music when you take them off your head and starts it again as soon as you put them back on. On top of that, the right earphone has an easily grippable volume knob that even works with gloves, if you're going to be using these outdoors in the cold. Sound-wise, there's barely any noticeable difference when noise cancelling is on or off. Oddly enough, it comes with "ballistic nylon sleeve" carrying case, though we didn't have any firepower to test what kind of punishment it could withstand.
