Jabra Elite Sport review

 

Jabra's Elite Sport Upgraded isn't really a new version of the company's sports-oriented totally wireless earphones, but they do feature one important change: A brand-new battery that provides 50 percent more battery life (4.5 hours instead of 3 hours)...

The Jabra Elite Sport Upgraded is a set of totally fully waterproof wireless sports earphones with a built-in heart-rate monitor that sounds quite good. Battery life is 4.5 hours, and the case delivers two more charges of equal length. Works very well...

May be a tad bulky for some people's ears; pricey; you lose some bass (and sound quality in general) if you don't get a tight seal.

With its improved battery life, the slightly evolved Jabra Sport Elite Upgraded remains one of the stronger early entries in the totally wireless headphone arena.

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.

Consistent audio quality ; Plenty of fit options ; Impressive sweat and waterproofing ; 3-year warranty

Takes perseverance to find a perfect fit ; Fear of loss never goes away

The Elite Sport are a culmination product, in some respects, as Jabra has evolved its sport earbuds into a solid product that fits well and leaves the cords behind, but you pay a price for the result. At $250, they are expensive, especially when...

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 Wireless Earbuds [Review]

 

A common factor that I think we can all agree upon when it comes to our fitness is that a good workout seems to go by a lot quicker and easier when we have some solid tunes to listen to. Whether it be with your phone's speakers, headphones, earbuds, or...

Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Earbuds Review (2nd Gen)

 

Usually, a refreshed device that simply tacks on a little battery life and nothing else wouldn't be all that exciting, but it's just that little tweak that has taken the Jabra Elite Sport true wireless earbuds from a great product to a potential...

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.

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...
