New Plantronics BackBeat SENSE: Reimagined Wireless Stereo Headphones

Ultra-light, smart Bluetooth® headphones deliver sublime audio, all-day listening on a single charge, and intuitive smart sensor technology Manila, Philippines – Plantronics (NYSE: PLT), a pioneer in audio and wearable technology, today unveiled the BackBeat SENSE: smart wireless headphones that redefine stereo headphone apabilities, comfort and audio excellence. Whether you want to get lost in a playlist, podcast, or movie, BackBeat SENSE combines barely-there lightweight materials, best-in-class Bluetooth battery life, smart sensors, understated style, and signature Plantronics audio. BackBeat SENSE is available today in the Philippines.

“From sunrise to sunset, people are indulging in streaming media on-the-go. They need headphones that don’t just keep up, but actually optimize their experience,” said Lori Langona, Director of Consumer Marketing, Plantronics. “With BackBeat SENSE, we’re bringing a new breed of headphones to the market that are equipped with intuitive sensor technology to help make the most of today’s always-on, content-rich, music-first reality.”

What makes BackBeat SENSE so different? Built-in smart sensors automatically pause your music when you slip off the headphones, preserving battery life when they’re not being worn, then gently fading in your tunes when you put them back on. Intelligent pairing makes connecting and moving back and forth between devices fast and seamless, including pairing with two devices simultaneously. Whispered voice alerts provide important updates on battery life, connection status, and more. Centralizing the headphone controls in one earcup makes the headphones easier to use and more intuitive, and battery life gets a serious boost with the ability to stream music and media for up to 18 hours on a single charge.

BackBeat SENSE also takes an innovative approach to design, ensuring all-day wearing comfort for everyone. Its unique, patent-pending headband is designed to comfortably fit 99% of head sizes and evenly distribute the weight of the headphones, extending wear time by eliminating pressure that can cause fatigue and discomfort. 

At only 140g, about the same weight as a smartphone, BackBeat SENSE is approximately 50% lighter than most on-ear Bluetooth headphones available today (* Internal testing has shown BackBeat SENSE weighs at least 50% less than a comprehensive list of competitive on-ear Bluetooth headphones.) Pillow-soft memory foam ear pads conform to the shape of the listener’s ear, improving audio performance. The headphones’ compact form and fold-flat earcups make BackBeat SENSE comfortable and convenient to wear around the neck when not in use.

Additional BackBeat SENSE technologies and benefits include:

• Signature Plantronics audio and dynamic drivers create the optimal balance of rich bass, crisp highs, and natural midtones to let you enjoy your music to the full, and hear every detail in your media.

• Advanced Class 1 Bluetooth lets you control up to two connected smartphones or tablets from up to 330ft/100m away—the length of a football field (* Requires a Class 1 Bluetooth device).

• Dual mics enable HD Voice communication for clear calls or interactions with voice applications such as Siri™, Google Now, Cortana and Skype.

• OpenMic™ technology for those times when you’ll occasionally need to hear the outside world. With OpenMic, you can do so with the touch of a button, and without missing a beat.

• Fold-flat earcups makes BackBeat SENSE easy to transport and store, and a durable pouch is included with a handy pocket for charging and audio cables.

Plantronics Award-Winning BackBeat Family

Make your vacation photos stand out in social media

Even if you haven’t seen a friend in ages, you’re most likely still going to hear about her vacation adventures because of those perfectly timed postings on Instagram or Facebook. Friends’ vacation photos seem to account for most of the photos that appear on an average person’s timeline. Obviously, people love to share how they’re discovering new places, savoring new cuisines, and embarking on new adventures with the rest of the world via their social media accounts.

Not all vacation photos, however, merit a second look. For sure, you’ve ignored some social media postings made by friends who have posted bland or cliché photos that anyone would instinctively gloss over. Who’s interested in a grainy photo of the sky or a view of the beach that could have been taken anywhere in the world? How many times have you seen that image of an airplane wing taken from inside the cabin? And will you really stop to look at an obligatory tour group photo taken in front of the bus?

If you’re planning to go on vacation anytime soon and intend to keep the world apprised of the highlights of your adventure, you may want to think of ways to come up with distinctive photos that will not only remind you of the great moments you’ve had, but will also merit a second look and lots of likes when you post them on social media.

Of course, the first step to getting great photos is to have a good camera. Fortunately, you don’t need to lug around a bulky SLR camera to take picture-perfect images, especially if you have a cutting-edge smartphone such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. With its 5-megapixel front camera and 16-megapixel rear camera, with F1.9 lens and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), you can take picture perfect images of your vacation highlights. On the other hand, its 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display on its seemingly borderless dual-edge screen offers unprecedented multimedia capabilities: its deeper screen contrast and superb detail will translate into thumb-stopping images that you and your friends will rave over.

Here are some reminders to help you come up with good vacation shots that you would be proud to post on your social media account:

Don’t take mediocre photos. Compose a good photo in your mind so that you don’t end up taking a pile of blah shots that’s best deleted from your phone. Don’t limit your photos to popular landmarks that everyone has probably seen on the internet anyway. Who needs to see another shot of the Golden Gate bridge or the Eiffel Tower? Capture moments that show ordinary but quirky scenes that you don’t see in all tourist traps. Be quick to snap those photos. The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ has a Quick Launch feature that lets you capture moments in under a sixth of a second (0.6 second) – by just pressing the home button twice.

Play with lighting. Lighting can add drama to your photos. Don’t limit yourself to daytime shots; the camera of the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ also offers Auto High Dynamic Rage (HDR), letting you take clear photos even in low light conditions. Take photos of the horizon at different times of the day. Just as you’d like to remember how serene the beach looked at sunrise, and the changing colors of the sea throughout the day, you would also want to remember the glow of the lanterns that lit the island at night.
Capture & Share live moments using video. Take videos of one-of-a-kind moments that are worth documenting—your daughter squealing in delight as she rides the mini train, or your dog emerging from the water with the trout he has captured. If you are using the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, you can make use of its Shake-Free Video feature, which helps create sharp, crisp 4K videos on the go, making it easy to shoot clear videos even if you are on the move. You can even share those great moments in real time. The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ has the Live Broadcast feature that lets you do a live streaming session on YouTube® directly from the smart phone’s camera.

Strike a pose. Whether you’re feeling sexy in a bikini or have been dying to wear boots, and scarves, take advantage of the moment by snapping a selfie. Afraid that your trip has made you look a little tired? Enable your phone’s Beauty Face for a quick fix. And if you’re feeling a little camera shy, drag in as many friends into the frame! Samsung’s wide-angle camera turns selfies into groufies with its 120 degree wide-angle lens.

Use catchy captions. Come up with witty captions that would draw people’s attention to your photos. Captions serve as a good hook and let people understand your photos better.

Be creative. Play with your images. You can post process your photos with the built-in features and filters of the Galaxy S6 edge+ to add depth to photos or make them more interesting. Make sure to crop unnecessary images in the background to remove any distractions.  

Experiment. Create colorful collages of photos. You can also use the Video Collage Mode to record and edit short videos easily in various frames and effects.

Simply put, if you want your vacation photos to truly stand out, you need the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ that offers the next level camera that allows users to capture brighter, blur-less photos and shake-free videos, all perfect for photo sharing, video-collages and live broadcasting. Not to mention its biggest dual edge display feature that offers the best viewing experience one can ever have.
