September 2018: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Plantronics, Inc. for allegedly falsely marketing its BackBeat FIT wireless headphones as “sports headphones” that are “sweatproof” and “waterproof” when, according to plaintiffs, they are neither sweat proof nor water proof. In addition, plaintiffs claim that the company misleadingly markets the headphones as able to provide “up to 8 hours” of wireless listening when, according to the complaint, the headphones do not last that long because they have a defect that prevents the batteries from holding a charge. (Shin et al v. Plantronics, Inc., Case No. 18-cv-5626, N. D. N.D. Cal.)
