Jabra Elite Sport review

 

If you want more than just cord-free music, the Elite Sport deliver in a way other wireless earbuds don't.

Jabra Elite Sport

 

With boosted bass response, a heart rate sensor, and a waterproof design, the Jabra Elite Sport is a quality wire-free earphone pair aimed at athletes and exercise buffs.

Powerful audio performance with boosted bass. Waterproof design. HearThrough lets you to monitor your surroundings while listening to audio. Built-in heart rate sensor and accelerometer.

Expensive. Short battery life. Audio not for those seeking a crisp, defined response.

Sonically, the Jabra Elite Sport is a bass-forward earphone pair that could use a little more high-mid presence to make things pop, but it will likely appeal to those motivated by deep lows while exercising. In terms of fit and design, the Elite Sport...

Jabra Elite Sport review

 

No, the Apple AirPods aren't the only "true wireless" headphones you can buy. Several other competitors have trickled into the market for standalone left and right earbuds in recent months, including the Motorola VerveOnes , Samsung Galaxy Gear IconX ,...

The Jabra Elite Sport is a set of totally fully waterproof wireless sports earphones with a built-in heart-rate monitor that sounds quite good if you can get a tight seal. Works very well as a headset as single or stereo buds. Compatible with leading...

May be a tad bulky for some people's ears; pricey; battery life between case charges is only three hours.

Despite some small drawbacks, the Jabra Sport Elite is one of the stronger early entries in the totally wireless headphone arena.

Jabra Elite Sport Earbuds Review: Overpriced Underperformers

 

Jabra packed plenty of features into its Elite Sport earbuds, but they're not upper-echelon. They deliver great sound, and their Bluetooth connection is steady and strong.

Maintains a strong Bluetooth connection ; Good audio quality ; Guided cross-training workouts ; Lots of ear sizing options

Bland, chunky design ; Buttons are hard to press ; Syncs only with Strava ; Inaccurate heart-rate monitor

The Jabra Elite Sport earbuds pack in a ton of features, but inaccurate heart-rate readings and poor ergonomics mar the experience.

Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Earbuds Review

 

In short order, we've been hit with a huge number of true wireless earbuds — wireless earbuds that lack even a cord to connect the two buds. Generally, true wireless earbuds are one of two types. The first are purely for audio, and tend to be smaller...

Review: Jabra Sport Elite Bluetooth Headphones

 

Jabra's take on cord-free Bluetooth headphones are the Elite Sport. These earbuds handle music, phone calls, and fitness thanks to an included heart rate monitor and phone-based coaching software. The Elite Sport fare well in this nascent category of...

Jabra Elite Sport wireless review: one day, these buds could replace your current tracker

 

Fitness buffs will love how much they can do with them, but $250 is still steep.

Comfortable design with multiple bud tip and ear wing options. ; Can track cardio and strength exercises. ; Charging case helps fuel the buds when they've run out of battery and helps keep them from getting lost. ; Jabra Sport Life app is easy to use...

Heart rate monitor consistently under-reads pulse during high-intensity exercise. ; Battery life is pretty short.

If you buy the Jabra Elite Sport headphones, you'll do so because they're convenient. The earbud form-factor is convenient for fitness tracking, since most people listen to music, podcasts, or other forms of audio entertainment while working out. Jabra...

Jabra Elite Sport review

 

A near-perfect pair of wireless headphones

Large range of exercises ; Long enough battery life ; Automatic rep-counting

Uncomfortable fit over time ; Expensive ; Heart rate data not perfect

An excellent set of AirPod rivals in many ways, and massively powerful in terms of the amount of exercising you can do. A touch too expensive perhaps (a lower price and they'd be a must-have), and the heart rate monitoring could be more accurate, but...

Jabra Elite Sport

 

Jabra has now entered the truly wireless earbud market market with its Elite Sport earphones. However, not content with ditching wires altogether (each bud is an independent unit with no cables connecting them), Jabra has also added a heart rate...
