The Altec Lansing Backbeat Classic is a pair of entry-level in-ear headphones released in early 2009. Also known as the Classic 106, this pair is differentiated from the similar Plus 206 and Titanium 326 by about $10 each. Every pair aims to provide a good value for the money with every step up. While the differences between the pairs aren’t enormous, they are significant enough to warrant careful consideration. The Classic 106s have a frequency response of 40 Hz-17 kHz compared with 30 Hz-18.5 kHz for the 206s. The 306s have a broader frequency response of 10 Hz-20kHz. Design wise, the Classic 106s are a step down, with a cheaper build quality when it comes to the buds. The cord measures 46” long and is mesh covered, opposed to being rubberized. The plug features a straight design that will fit into recessed headphone jacks. Also included is a set of 3 silicon tips, which gives users a choice when it comes to finding a comfortable fit.
