Travel Gadget Review - Plantronics BackBeat Bluetooth Headphones

Travel Gadget Review - Plantronics BackBeat Bluetooth Headphones

Disclosure: I purchased this product for my own use. I am reviewing it on my own initiative and my opinions are my own. I am not being compensated for this review.

I have been going back and forth about wireless headphones for a few months, probably ever since I had iPhone 5S and loaded it up with music. Though once I got the iPhone 6 with much more memory, I have been considering it a lot more. I research most of my gadgets decisions and same goes for this purchase. Some of the wireless headphone on the market have strange designs or headpieces. I also wanted one that could withstand daily use during a city commute, occasional jog, and would not have to taken off in the rain.
My search resulted in these, and with a sale (currently 30% Off), I made the jump:

These headphones have easily accessible on-ear controls let you keep moving while you control your music or calls. BackBeat FIT continues to function through rain, sweat, and even the splash of a drink. Headset battery meter automatically displays onscreen for iPhone when it is connected. Plus every time they turn on, they let you know if the battery level is high, medium, or low. You can wirelessly update your BackBeat FIT using a free smartphone app. No connection to a computer or internet is needed to use the actual app. Moreover, the app has a Find MyHeadset feature, similar to Find My iPhone, that would help you locate your headset if it is misplaced.
Why good to have on a trip:
- Waterproof, sweatproof
- Long battery life - around 8 hours
- Easy to charge via USB cable or with USB travel USB charger adapter
- Flexible earbuds and band - can be folded to fit into pouch or pocket
- Receive and answer calls via headphones
- Adjust volume and playback all from the headphones without taking out your phone
- GPS type of tracker to find headphones if they go missing

Litelok Bike Lock
The lock attaches easily to both your bike and your backpack. Litelok® is made from lightweight material that makes it significantly lighter than every other secure bike lock currently on the market. It is also more flexible that those locks which means it’s easier to secure around a much wider array of fixed objects such as tree trunks, lamp posts, concrete posts, fencing, railings, and sign posts. The Litelok can withstand sustained attack from all of the tools commonly used by bike thieves such as cable cutters, bolt croppers, hacksaws, jacks and hammers.

Electric bike capable of recharging itself
This bike is chainless yet powerful enough to provide riders of up to 16mph of speed via an integrated alternator that converts mechanical energy to an electrical energy designed to supplement the power of the rechargeable battery. All you have to do is pedal to recharge the battery. Plus it folds to 1/3 of its size so you can bring it anywhere with you.

Baidu will test a self-driving BMW later this year
"the vehicle should be smart enough to operate itself, but enable you to take command as and when necessary. We would make a joke about that being what a lot of people thought the "Cruise Control" button was for"
