  • [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.

      These would be a PERFECT replacement for my Motorola S9 headphones that burned out on me about a year ago. I bought the s9's for about $150 and loved being able to use them at the gym, track and basketball court. I just have not had the money to replace them. These look even more durable and the built in FM is awesome! And just like you, the regular Apple headphones just do not stay put. Once I start sweating they take turns falling out! I need these!!!

      Sounds perfect for my needs. The battery run-time might be a little lacking (I'd use them for six hours at a time), but a small break would be all right.
