Plantronics Wireless Headphone Sale: Voyager 8200, Backbeat Pro 2, Fit


If you haven’t gone shopping for wireless headphones, you might be in for a shock—they can be pretty expensive. That’s why it warms my heart (just a little) when I see some of our favorite Bluetooth headphones on sale, especially these. Of all the headphones I’ve tested for WIRED in the past six months, the Plantronics Voyager 8200 UC have become one of my favorites. Right now, they’re more than $100 off on Amazon.

The Plantronics Voyager 8200 UC are on sale for $245, $135 off their regular price of $380.

The Black version is also discounted if you don’t care for white and tan.

The Voyager 8200 UC are worthy of our WIRED Recommends seal of approval with excellent 20-hour battery life, great sound with strong (but not overpowering) bass, and two active noise cancellation settings. They’re not the best looking set of cans I’ve worn, but they won me over by working so well and feeling so comfortable. Believe me, if you fly frequently or commute on a noisy train, these will make your life just a little quieter.

They have four microphones in them that cancel noise out as you talk, making them surprisingly good for phone calls. I also like how they auto pause the second you lift up even one of the earcups, then restart when they’re back on. The earcups also have a nice hinge, so you can rest them on your shoulders without feeling like you’re being strangled by a really weak guy. Whether you think the styling’s hot or not, give them some consideration.

$70 off Plantronics BackBeat FIT

Need headphones for running or your regular gym visits? These Plantronics wireless headphones are designed to withstand vigorous workouts, and repel sweat while lasting 8 hours on a charge. Normally $120, you can grab the BackBeat FIT for only $60 right now.

BackBeat Pro 2 Are Also on Sale

The Plantronics Backbeat Pro 2 are also on sale for $157 (Normally $199). They’re virtually identical in all ways, except for color, but they have only one level of noise cancellation and aren’t tuned as well for phone calls in noisy areas. They still sound fantastic and we recommend them.

Other Recommendations

Finally, we haven’t fully tested them, but the Plantronics Backbeat Sense are $60 on Amazon (normally $180). They are on-ear headphones as opposed to over ear, so they’ll rest on top of your ears.
