"Excellent Value & Sound, Average ANC"
5 stars"

I bought the non SE where the only difference is the colour and case so functionally the same. After about a year with them I am very happy with the BBPro2 and would thoroughly recommend them unless noise cancelling is the primary feature you're after. What I like;

  • Very comfortable for long stretches of wear and feel sturdy. I've not noticed anything to give me concern about quality. They are closed so of course ears get warm and sweaty if exercising.
  • Battery life is great, especially if you can use the wear sensing feature that automatically disconnects when you take them off.
  • Microphone voice pickup and isolation is excellent (as expected from Plantronics) and phone conversations are a breeze – just takes some time to get used to.
  • Audio quality for music listening is great for the price. I know there's going to be better if you spend more but for this price range they are very good.
  • Bluetooth range and quality seems good but I'm not listening to lossless music so…

My only gripes;

  • On-ear sensing doesn't always work for me as I have small ears. This can lead to situations of the headphones cutting in & out as they disconnect and reconnect. Likewise, if you wear a beanie over your head and ears that will stop the feature working. I've had to disable the feature and that really hurts battery life if I forget to turn them off.
  • ANC is nothing like what you get from a pair of BOSE QC35 (my only other quality reference) as the noise cancelling on those is staggering. My $80 pair of wired Sony MDRZX110NC on ear phones are about equal to the BBPro2. Without anything playing, with noise cancelling on I can still have a conversation with people and hear some ambient office noise. On a long distance flight they are helpful but if that's what you're buying ANC for I'd look elsewhere.

"Great headphones, pretty meh noise cancelling"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The headphones have fantastic audio quality and some pretty amazing features like On-ear sensing and Open listening.

Even with all the positive things I have to say about these head phones they are pretty lacking in the noise cancelling department if noise cancelling is the main reason you want to get these headphones save a couple of hundred dollars and get the WH-1000XM3.

"Comfortable, sounds amazing, packed with features"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape


  • Some of the most comfortable headphones I've ever worn. Extremely soft, not too tight. I can wear them for hours.
  • They sound fantastic. The bass could be tighter, but other than that the sound is crystal clear, with a nice wide soundscape.
  • Noise cancellation is great. Not perfect, but great. Doesn't block out voices completely but the very loud air conditioning in my office is completely erased while ANC is turned on.
  • Lot's of great quality-of-life features, such as pausing music when you turn your headphones off, and Open Listening to hear your surroundings through the mic.
  • Fairly small for over-ear headphones so you don't look like a tosser wearing them while commuting.
  • Build quality feels very solid. Not a huge fan of the wood pattern on the ears, but it looks a lot better on the Special Edition than the original. Other than that they look great.


  • As mentioned, the bass is a bit thick, not as punchy or balanced as it could be. This is only even worth mentioning because of the very high quality of the audio overall.

Conclusion: What a fantastic pair of headphones, especially for the price. If it weren't for the mildly overbearing bass, I would give them a 10/10.
