    I've had 3 pair of the Backbeats. I can qualify for 2 $25 refunds for the older 2 pair. If you've previously sent a written complaint re: battery life or water/sweat resistance, you're eligible for $50 ea. for up to 2 sets. I think I can get an extended warranty on the newest pair, too. Probably won't bother, as the kid and I now use Aftershokz (my biggest beef with the Plantronics were that they blocked too much external noise).

      If you're concerned about external noise why do you wear headphones? I wouldn't expect someone wearing headphones to be worried about external noises because they're actively blocking them using headphones.

        Because it is nice sometimes to be able to both listen to music and still be aware of surroundings.  It is a balance, and it doesn't have to be either-or.

          Yes. It's the primary reason I now wear Aftershokz headphones. And I wore Sennheiser's sport headphones for years...until they kind of stopped making them for a while and didn't offer any sport models with bluetooth. Noise-cancelling headphones are nice on a plane or while in the hospital, but I otherwise don't want to block out all ambient sounds.
