Jabra Sport Review
The Jabra Sport is a Bluetooth headset designed for those who like to listen to their music and pick up calls while doing an exercise or just be active outdoor. It streams stereo audio wirelessly and lets you take important phone calls, while shrugging off spills, dust, and drops.
Featuring a built-in FM radio, A2DP streaming audio technology, AM3D Power Bass audio enhancement and Virtual Surround Sound audio enhancements, the Jabra SPORT provides an exceptional music with a wider variety options and easy-to-use controls. Most of the necessary functions to control your phone or music player are built into the Jabra Sport: volume control, next/previous track, an answer/end call button and even an FM activation button.
The stereo headset also features a wind-shielded microphone on the back of an earpiece and is US Military Standard Rain, Dust and Shock Resistant certified, ensuring that you don't need to hold back during your workouts on account of your headphones, and still get an exceptional call sound quality.
The Bluetooth headset has a flexible behind-the-ear fit with ear hooks so that it can stay firmly and comfortably. With a choice of different ear gels and a flexible behind-the-ear fit, it stays firmly and comfortably in place. You'll get up to 4.5 hours of continuous talk time or 3 hours of continuous music playback.
The two earpieces are joined by a flat coated cable that makes it tangle-free and easy to wipe and clean.
The buttons on the earpiece are both weatherproof and well positioned on the back, and are different shapes, letting the runner identify them without resorting to trial and error prods. Buttons are covered in the same silicon layer that coats the earpiece, which means you can rinse them off without worrying about water getting under the switches and into the electronics. Finally, there is a micro USB socket under a flap, through which you can charge the headset.
The ergonomic Jabra Sport is ultra-light and easy to wear. Size, weight and durability are prime factors in all sport headphones and the Jabra Sport headset weighs a mere 25g, and the earpieces are unobtrusive yet secure on the ears.
Another notable feature of the Jabra Sport is that it has a multi-use function which allows it to connect to two devices simultaneously. It can automatically stop the music from one device if there is an incoming call from another device, and resumes the music after the call.
There is also a free Endomondo Sports Tracker application to keep track of your running, cycling, walking, or other distance-based outdoor sports. The app is very useful if you want to know how far you’ve run, how much calories burnt, and even the route you took. With the Endomondo app, you will also get instant feedback with your workout status read aloud through your headset, and you can pause Endomondo from tracking your workout with the press of a button.
When using indoors, you can place your Bluetooth-enabled mobile device anywhere within up to a 30-foot radius of where you're working out. For optimal reception when wearing outdoors, you should place your mobile device above the waist and on the right side of the body (the recommended placement is on your right arm using an optional arm strap).
The Jabra Sport wireless headset is a great, sturdy highly functional solution to the hassle of cords. With a good battery life, quick charge time and a battery indicator on the phone it is really easy to keep the headset going all day.
