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 HEADPHONES


The Jabra Elite Sport are good headphones for running and working out, but they also do well for most use cases. They have a decently sturdy and rugged design with easy-to-use controls but a mediocre layout. They also sound moderately well-balanced...

Stable and breathable for sports. ; Good range and wireless connection. ; Good customizable app.

Not as comfortable for everyone. ; Sub-par microphone.

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


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...

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...
