Plantronics announced earlier this week that the BackBeat PRO, BackBeat FIT, EncorePro 510/520 and EncorePro 540 have won the prestigious International Forum (iF) Product Design Awards 2015 in the Audio/Video category. Plantronics

products have previously been honored with iF design awards, including the Voyager Legend CS and RIG Gaming Audio System (2014), the Voyager PRO Bluetooth® headset (2010) and EncorePro headset (2009).

For more than 60 years, the iF design award has been recognized around the world as a label of design excellence. This year, the high-profile, international jury evaluated more than 5,000 entries from 53 countries in order to determine who would receive this coveted seal of excellence. Products were evaluated based on criteria including innovation, functionality, design quality, material, ergonomics and environmental compatibility.
