BackBeat SENSE is a wireless bluetooth headphone, available in two color combinations, designed for mobile phones and tablets. Thanks to its unique, lightweight over-the-head design, it offers hours of wearing comfort. Pillow-soft memory foam ear pads conform to the listener’s ear, improving comfort and audio performance. The efficient power management ensures up to 18 hours of audio streaming on one charge and intelligent sensors automatically pause the music when the headphone is removed. OpenMic allows users to amplify external sounds with one touch of a button. Voice alerts and centralized controls in one earcup allow an intuitive handling.
