Plantronics BackBeat 500 review: Budget headphones have a new challenger

I am not an on-ear headphones person so it's difficult for me to review them objectively without saying how much I dislike the idea and pressure they exert on my ears. Oddly, that's not the case with the BackBeat 500, the newest release from Plantronics. I don't hate them and I can manage wearing them for a couple of hours without wanting to rip them off my head.

[Deal Alert] A Popular Deal Returns - V-MODA Crossfade M-80 On-Ear Headphones Only $80 Today On Amazon And BestBuy, Down From $150

The V-MODA Crossfade M-80 is an exceptionally well built set of noise isolating cans with superb sound and distinctive styling. We loved them here at Android Police when we reviewed them after they launched back in 2012 and that adoration has only grown as the price has decreased over the past of couple years.

Today you can grab a pair of these sweet headphones for just $80 at Amazon or BestBuy, about half of what they normally sell for. That matches the best price we have ever seen on the M-80 and is a killer deal. If you need some new headphones (or just really want some) you shouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.
