The Altec Lansing Backbeat Plus is a pair of entry-level in-ear headphones released in early 2009. Also known as the Plus 206, this pair is differentiated from the similar Classic 106 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 Plus 206s have a frequency response of 30 Hz-18.5 kHz compared with 40 Hz-17 kHz for the 106s. The 306s have a broader frequency response of 10 Hz-20kHz. Design wise, the Plus 206s are a step up, with an increased 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.
