No Cords, No Compromise

Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 wireless earbuds and charging case deliver immersive audio for your non-stop life with up to 14.5 hours of use on the go. Once you experience the rich bass, crisp highs, and natural midtones, you’ll want every minute the charging case offers so you can lose yourself in the soundtrack of your day.

BackBeat GO 2 earbuds are designed to seal in the bass and block out the noise — so lose the cord, free your music, and still take that call. There are three sizes of eartips and two stabilizers to provide a secure, comfortable fit.

Thanks to the protective soft charging case, you’ll get up to 14.5 hours of listening time with the BackBeat GO 2 wireless earbuds (from fully charged case).

Moisture Protection

You can rely on the BackBeat GO 2 to work as hard as you do — through rain, sweat, and the inevitable coffee spill. BackBeat GO 2 earbuds are protected against sweat and moisture damage by P2i technology. The nano-coating is applied during the manufacturing process, resulting in invisible liquid repellent properties that also makes the earbuds more reliable, wherever your busy life takes you.
