This new pair of wireless headphones features smart sensors and generous autonomy to provide the best uninterrupted audio experience.

Last week, audio and wearable technology pioneer Plantronics unveiled the BlackBeat SENSE, a pair of smart wireless headphones that can "deliver sublime audio, all-day listening on a single charge." According to the official press release, these headphones "redefine stereo headphone capabilities, comfort and audio excellence."

BackBeat SENSE has the following highlights:

  • signature Plantronics audio and dynamic drivers
  • advanced Class 1 Bluetooth connectivity with improved coverage
  • HD Voice-capable dual mics with optimal performance for Siri, Cortana, Google Now, and Skype
  • OpenMic technology
  • fold-flat earcups design (a durable pouch with a handy pocket for cables included)

These headphones weigh less than 0.31 pounds and the patent-pending headband "is designed to comfortably fit 99% of head sizes." The two color combinations available are black/espresso and white/tan.

BlackBeat SENSE can be purchased already for $179.99 USD from authorized Plantronics retailers in the US, including Plantronics.com and T-Mobile. Worldwide availability is expected in August, international pricing being €179.99 EUR or £149.99 GBP. For more details, please check the press release below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
