ElectroManiac Anyone here own the Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2?

Would like to hear your thoughts on this one.

I'm looking for a headphone that I can use it wired on my PC for competitive gaming and wireless Bluetooth with my phone and TV for casual music, gaming and anime.

The BackBeat Pro 2 seems like the only that fit this. With their support of aptX LL would be good for casual wireless TV/Gaming.

speed_demon Anybody know of any mods for the Senn 650? I was just thinking the headband could be improved as even the cheapie models have the nice cushy band. Really I am just bored and want something to mod.

Searching the interwebs didn't bring up a whole lot. Did find this but it doesn't look to be much of a difference from the stock setup.

This looks very interesting . A couple of mods i have seen dont go all the way to remove the whole headband , so because the top part where the elastic band is attached is glued , they end up with a pretty ugly ( working nonetheless ) result. Thanks for the idea !

It seems this is so common on these headphones it's almost guaranteed I will have the same problem again. I use them as daily driver and use them more than 5-6 hours a day so that might lead to even faster wearing down than average. I would rather mod them myself and end this story once and for all even if that might lead to warranty void.

PS: I don't even have any other headphones for the one month RMA period. This is a pain in the arse.

Ps2: I was also thinking of grabbing a second pair for Christmas present to myself :3 im also considering X2HR or HE4XX
