From The Manufacturer

Escape with the BackBeat GO 410, wireless, active noise-canceling (ANC) earbuds. Its lightweight design provides comfortable all-day listening, while dual-mode ANC makes it easy to control how much noise you tune out. When you want to hear your surroundings, patent-pending magnetic smart sensors latch to conserve battery power by disabling ANC and disconnecting your earbuds from your Bluetooth device. Bluetooth is automatically reconnected and ANC is turned on when the magnets are unlatched, so they’re ready when you want to listen to music or need to take a call.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Its USB charging cable has an integrated 3.5mm cable so you can plug into in-flight entertainment systems on planes. That's a big plus because one of the reasons people buy noise-cancelling headphones is to drown out plane noise when they're traveling.
The microphone works. It does an all right job minimizing background noise and parlaying the speaker’s voice well.
The headphone’s strong, reliable connection thanks to the inclusion of Bluetooth 5.0 that prevented the headphones from skipping or dropping out in our daily use.
Plantronics claims an eight-hour run time when listening via Bluetooth with the noise cancelling on; listening wirelessly with ANC off will net you 10 hours of use.

What reviewers didn't like

This headphone doesn't have the excellent voice calling performance of the Voyager 6200. But it's a Plantronics headphone so voice calling is still decent, just not great.
Mic position makes it easy to brush mic against clothes.
ANC is average, blocking out a good amount of noise but not as much as class leaders from Bose or Sony, due in part to its size but mostly the algorithm and hardware plantronics implemented in its approach. What's worse, however, is that there’s also a noticeable hiss when ANC is activated.
The BackBeat Go 410 earbuds are sweat-resistant, but the collar can bounce or slide around during vigorous workouts.
