The BackBeat Fit 305 are not there to do in delicacy. Failing to be discreet and neat (large braided cable, imposing remote control, cheap looking plastic chassis ), these intras actually have the merit of being light and of offering good robustness. During our few weeks of daily use, the Fit 305 showed no signs of weakness, whether during sports, in the rain (IPX5 certification) or in less trying conditions. A small clamp is integrated on the cable to ensure good support and especially to avoid losing intras. In order to best protect them when they are not being worn, a fabric carrying pouch is also provided
When it comes to feelings of comfort, the BackBeat Fit 305 do the job. They fit easily, find their place quite naturally and hold securely in place. On the other hand, we clearly experienced less intrusiveness. Indeed, the feeling of pressure is quite important: instead of sinking very deep into the duct, the flange of the tips closes it almost hermetically. If you are particularly sensitive to this effect, this model may not be suitable for you. And contrary to what one might have thought, this phenomenon does not drastically accentuate the passive insulation, which remains simply satisfactory. You will still be able to hear some sounds around you.
This pair of sports intras ranks in the good average in terms of autonomy. Indeed, it promises 6 hours of use after a full recharge, which we were able to verify without any problems during our test. We have even been able to exceed this promise by an hour on several occasions.
The BackBeat Fit 305 are also not in finesse when it comes to the listening experience. The sound reproduction is particularly colorful and is not really controlled.
This pair of intras emphasizes both the extreme bass and the second part of the audible spectrum, from midrange to treble. The first boost, very accentuated between 20 and 60 Hz approximately, provides a large seat and provides great depth to the bass. It could have been interesting if and only if the membranes behaved well in this area, but this is not really the case. We can correctly perceive the attacks (if they are not too close to each other), but we cannot really describe or distinguish the elements operating in this area: it is as if we were facing a mass. The masking effects are therefore very present, and the timidity of the bass and low mids really does not help to restore definition to the whole.
Regarding the power, there is nothing to complain about. The distortion is relatively calm over the entire spectrum, even if we note its tiny presence around 3.5 kHz.
The communication latency is correct with this pair of intras: less than 150 ms. You will therefore be able to follow your videos with a minimum of comfort. If you can, however, and if your reader allows, do not hesitate to narrow this gap.
The BackBeat Fit 305 do offer essentials for athletes looking for a listening companion. However, it is clear that some competing solutions are more worked and especially offer better sound performance. We think in particular of the Jaybird X3 , the Freedom or the Bose SoundSport Wireless , very close in terms of price.
