The headphones market is pretty saturated, so its a bit of a surprise that the relatively quiet Plantronics would be the brand to present one of the smartest innovations of the year. Aside from representing a more fashionable foray for the Santa Ana-based brand, the BackBeat SENSE wireless headphones feature a sensor that automatically pauses your music when you remove the headphones from your ears. There are no extraneous motions; the BackBeat SENSE is one of the most, well, sensible features that we were surprised to find out wasn’t popularized yet. Aside from that, the headphones feature an impressive 18-hour battery life and the ability to pair with multiple Bluetooth-enabled devices simultaneously. The best part? You can pick up these rarities now for $179 USD on Plantronics’ website.
