  • [GIVEAWAY] Jabra SPORT Wireless Headset


    Headphones are something I do not take for granted. They play a big role in my day to day activities, whether itís at home, at the office, or while travelling. I even use different kinds, depending if Iím going to be talking on the phone or not. I have a more expensive pair for purely listening but when I want to talk on the phone I usually switch them out for the stock Apple headphones with the in-line mic.

    Unfortunately, while doing any sort of physical activity, neither of them is suitable. The Apple headphones just donít stay in my ears and I donít want to damage my more expensive pair by getting them sweaty. Ideally, it would be nice to exercise, listen to music and if need be, take a callÖÖenter the Jabra SPORT headset.



    The SPORT headset has an over-the-ear design, which makes it more likely to stay in place during physical activity. It has US Military grade rain, dust and shock protection. These might be one of the only pairs of earphones I would be comfortable using in a heavy rainstorm. They are ultra lightweight to the point where you might forget youíre wearing them.

    The best thing is the fact that the area where the earphone connects to the main body is made of a bendable silicone, which should allow for a good fit on many different types of ears. The cord connecting the two earpieces together also has a rubbery coating on it which, again, should withstand the elements, including all that sweat you build up during a good workout.



    Letís talk a bit about the audio quality as, letís face it, these are headphones! The SPORT communicates to your iPhone through A2DP and also has AM3D bass audio enhancement and a wind-shielded microphone. The sound quality was very good and the bass really was the star, if bass is your thing. The call quality was quite good, in our testing the caller on the other end could tell it was a Bluetooth, but Iíve found the same to be true with many other brands of Bluetooth headsets. Conversation was easily understandable. The SPORT also has a built in FM radio.

    As we all know, all ears are not equal, and can range from tiny to large. Thatís why Jabra has included multiple ear attachments which should be able to fit comfortably in whatever size ear you may have. In our testing, the SPORT remained in the ear comfortably for over an hour and didnít fall out during physical activity. Connecting it to the iPhone was a snap. Jabra claims the battery can get through 3 hours of music and 4.5 hours of talk time. While we did run the battery out with music and found it did indeed last just under 3 hours, we did not have a 4.5 hour conversation.



    There are buttons for play, pause, forward and backward skip on the earpiece itself which is nice feature as the point of these is to not have to touch your iPhone while using them. Overall, these are great if you are looking for durable, quality sounding earphones that can absorb the beating that comes with intense physical activity. You can pick up a pair on the Jabra website for $99.99. Jabra has been kind enough to provide us with an extra pair that we will be giving away to one lucky member.

      Really need something to be flexible and take a beating have found nothing to stand up to cross training workouts. Usually one week and headphones lose something.

      That looks like a great set for basketball. Because right now I use a single in ear bluetooth when I shoot around, and don't have a secure pocket! I would love to have theses! And for my morning runs! Hook it up!

      I hope they come in different colors eventually. Not a big fan of yellow and black, but I can deal with it. I love to run a lot, but the problem is, that my headphones don't stay in, maybe this will be a practical solution.

      I really like these Headphones having been given such a close-up inspection of them with the highly detailed photographs. I was dubious about having a flexible cord connecting the earpieces simply because of durability. Now having seen them closely I feel much more confident that the flexibility is more an asset than a liability.

      Its about time someone released some quality, and functional wireless headphones! I could really use something like this for running, getting wired headphones yanked out of your ears when you're trying to work out is a major pain.

      These would be amazing, the pair I have right now gets really annoying because I always end up getting my arm caught on the stupid wire while running and rip the headphones right out of my ear. Not fun. These would be awesome, especially since I'm finally back into running every day after tearing my Achilles tendon.

      These also have a mic and are waterproof? Whaaattt?!!? Warm rain is the best type of running, and these headphone would be more than perfect. The ones I have right now SUCK in the rain and the left side always cuts out. These are awesome possum fo sho.
