Found 10th May 2015
This doesn't become active until tomorrow because they've messed up the promo code with Amazon, their twitter suggests it will become active from tomorrow and will be active for a week...

Promo code: "Hackney1"

Source: twitter.com/Pla…368

Original price: £63.43
Reduced price: £28.43

Reviews look pretty good, am thinking of getting a pair to replace my Yurbuds (which are fantastic, but lack audio controls)

BackBeat FIT at a glance:

- Flexible design fits comfortably and stays put for all levels of exercise
- Rugged design with P2i sweat‐proof coating
- On-ear controls for calls and music
- Included neoprene armband secures your smartphone and reverses to store headphones
- Powerful speakers deliver the heart-pumping bass and crisp highs of your music
- Up to 8 hours of listening time, 6 hours of talk time, 14 days of standby time
- DeepSleep hibernation mode activates when out of range from your phone or tablet, keeping headphones charged up to six months

UPDATE: Amazon have messed up the promo code validity, hence why it is still saying 'expired' at 00:10 on Monday. (It was meant to go live Sunday!)

It is likely that some manual action is needed by their head office staff before the site will accept the code. Assuming the typical office job starts at 9am, expect it to go live from around then.

!! - Code is expired due to Amazon technical fault! It will go live later today. - !!

Planatronics, on their Twitter, said that it should be up from tomorrow. Presumably waiting for Amazon head office staff to get in on Monday morning to fix it

As it was meant to go live today (Sunday) to coincide with the Hackney half marathon, and it hasn't worked, it may not become active exactly at midnight. I would assume somebody somewhere has an email waiting for them when they get in to the office in the morning.

It's now 15 seconds past midnight and the code still isn't working. I'll just sit here clicking Apply until it does.

Currently not working?? 00:02

00.01 promo code expired

Code lasts one week and will be working soon. From Plantronics twitter:

"Amazon are fixing this problem now. The code will be working tomorrow and will last 1 week."

Is it definitely the right code?

Hmmmm...tempting

How do they stack up against JayBirds Bluebuds X? Bluebuds are excellent, but I can't seem to be able to get a good fit with any size of the cup, so I'm hoping these may be better?

These sit inside your ears and are supported by the hooks on each side that wrap around the outside of your ear, unlike the JayBirds which are traditional in-ear earphones that create a kind of suction to keep them in place, but block out a lot of external noise by doing so.

the code ain't working.

I'm getting this error message in red:
The promotional code you entered has expired.

No dice, for those trying to order nice and early....

Put a note in the title that it's still to be activated.

Off to bed now! Hopefully they'll have stock when I can get around to logging on tomorrow.

Apologies to anybody that is a bit disheartened it's not active yet... Thought it better to post sooner than when I got home from work tomorrow evening

These are great headphones, I spent ages waiting for a good deal and found some on eBay for £50 about 3 weeks ago...wish I waited now.

please expire
