    I was looking at the Plantronics BackBeat Fit Bluetooth Headphones tonight. The only concern I has is the one size fits all ear buds. If they were interchangeable I would have purchased them already.

    I own them and their a sleeper. Strong bass,10 hours of play time, durable, and a biggie is people can hear you on the phone unlike the other Bluetooth headphones. I'm very happy with them.

    Your post title is which one are you (we) going to use. Not what should I (you) buy based on my budget. Totally different question. :)

    I'd buy the one that had the best (so called) expert reviews and the least 1 & 2 star consumer reviews.

    I purchased the Soundpeats Qy7 and have been using it regularly.

    I will admit that I am not an audiophile, but I have owned earphones in the $200 range. The audio quality on the Soundpeats Qy7 is great, especially at the price point (I paid $27 for it).

    The cost to quality ratio is pretty high on this one. For the price, the audio quality is phenomenal. I own a wired earphone (purchased for around $20) and the Soundpeats Qt7 (even over Bluetooth) sounds in the order of magnitudes better. I use it when I am running.

    Pros:
    - Great cost to quality ratio
    - Great audio quality
    - Stays in ear during exercise (comes with the same stabilizer as the more expensive Jaybird Bluebuds X)

    Cons:
    - Useless manual
    - Useless manual
    - Useless manual ! ! !

    I would like to elaborate on the owner's manual. The Soundpeats Qy7 comes with something called ear hooks or ear stabilizers. Their purpose is to stabilize the earphones so that they don't fall out of your ear during exercise. The problem is that the owner's manual does not mention how to use them. It comes with 2 different kinds of stabilizers. There is a right way and a wrong way to attach them to the ear phones, and the manual does not explain it at all.

    The good news is that the stabilizer that comes with the Soundpeats Qy7 is exactly the same kind as the ones that come with the more expensive Jaybird Bluebuds X. Meaning, you can search for the Jaybird Bluebuds X owner's manual, which will explain in detail how to use these stabilizers.

    A simple picture showing the correct orientation of the stabilizers would have sufficed. This would have saved me some time, frustration and annoyance.

    ---

    I would knock it half a star for the poor owner's manual, but at the end of the day, it's a great bluetooth earphone with great sound quality at a super competitive price, so I am giving it 5 stars. Just make sure to take a look at the owner's manual for the Jaybird Bluebuds X.

    Just a tip, keep an eye out for headphones that suffer from output lag. If you plan to use them with any other device for video, many cheap bluetooth headsets have poor lip-syncing issues

    The SoundPeats QY7s are available under several brand names, and IMHO probably the best use of money if you're wanting to buy these for working out. I think the money saved (almost $100) on these over something like the Jaybirds could be used towards *really* nice headphones to use in non-workout situations.

    I've just bought the PowerBeats 2. I know a guy at work with the Soundpeats and after listening to them I really do not rate them at all.

    I'm by no means an audiophile, but i found the Soundpeats are very tinny sounding and I don't rate them at all for music.

    Day to day I have a set of Yamaha HPH-PRO 500's which are perfect in terms of bass, mids & treble balance. At least I think so. The beats are more bass orientated which is what I've always heard and why I went for the Yamaha's over the beats for my main headphones.

    For running/gym the beats will be ideal. Good quality sound, fits very nice and look good.
