Plantronics had released its latest wireless over-ear headphones, BackBeat Pro 2, with a relatively low price point at just under $200.

Plantronics new premium wireless headphones still features its noise-cancelling technology, while keeping the price at a relatively cheap price tag at $199.99. BackBeat Pro 2 still manages to produce an ear-thumping sound quality, as well as a long battery life, Engadget reported.

The electronics company had managed to keep the price cheap, but assures its customers with a feature-laden product. BackBeat Pro 2 also offers consumers a cheaper alternative from other premium wireless headphones, which typically retails at $300.

Plantronics claims that its 15 percent lighter than its predecessor, the BackBeat Pro+, with a redesigned earpiece, which now features an oblong ear-pad design.

Some critics still cite that the design is not Plantronics' best suit, although it does produce a respectable sound quality, noise-cancellation feature, as well as a 24-hour battery life; all the while keeping it low-cost. The headphones also feature sensors capable of identifying whether the user has its on or off, and automatically plays or stops the track.

It is certain that BackBeat Pro 2 far from the Beats Studio Wireless in terms of looks. While it has very similar features, the latter is significantly more expensive. It certainly best suits consumers whom are not particularly design-conscious, according to The Verge.

Plantronics' first venture into premium noise-cancelling headphones was back in 2013, and it is apparent that it has come a long way since. While it may have relatively hit a slump after the BackBeat Pro+ launch last year, wherein users are quite not sure if it suits its $300 price tag.

BackBeat Pro 2 features a comfortable fit as it is padded on all three support points. Critics hail Plantronics' active noise-cancelling technology, as of which were enough to cancel out noise from the street, as well as subway racket, Mashable reported.
