Jabra Sport Wireless Headset Review!!

Hey everyone, today I want to share a really neat product that is also super-useful. Let me start by explaining that whenever I exercise, I want to have music on. Whether I'm taking a brisk morning walk, doing an exercise dvd in my room, or using the treadmill at our local YMCA, I always have my iPod or phone with me. One problem, however, is finding some earbuds that don't fall out if I move into a jog. Or a common disaster, my arms get tangled up in the wires. So, when I heard about the Jabra Sport, I knew this was a product that would be a winner.
The Jabra Sport is a wireless bluetooth headset that gives you the ability to not only enjoy your music -wirelessly- while exercising, but also take any important phone calls! It connects to iPhones and other smartphones, so practically anyone can use this. My smartphone (I have a Sony Ericcson Vivaz right now) also doubles as an MP3 player, so the Jabra Sport was perfect for my needs.

When the Sport arrived, I was very impressed with the design, quality and comfort of the headset. A small band connects your earpieces, so it keeps them from falling off during your active moments. 

I am very picky about my earbuds (okay, picky is an understatement; I use over-the-ear headphones because it's rare to find an in-ear or around-ear set that I can wear without discomfort). So, I was extremely pleased with the comfort of the Jabra Sport! No uncomfortable fit, no pinching or tugging; just a pleasant headset that you almost forget is even there! 

A closer shot
The Sport was easily paired with my phone, and from there I checked out all the neat features. You can adjust the volume, skip tracks, and accept or decline calls, all with the headset; there's no need to pull your phone out! I use an armband to hold my device while exercising, and have it in a side "holster" the rest of the time. With both of these, the Jabra Sport works beautifully, and I have uninterrupted music the entire time of my workouts! It's so much easier than trying to pull my phone out to play with the volume or go to a certain song while jogging! 

I am very pleased with the Jabra Sport, and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a better alternative to the average earbuds. This is superior in so many ways, and makes life just so much easier!

"With the Jabra SPORT you get exceptional music and call sound quality. It has A2DP, AM3D Power Bass audio enhancement and a wind-shielded microphone and Virtual Surround Sound audio enhancements. It also has a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to your favourite station while you work out. 

The Jabra SPORT is ultra-light and easy to wear. With a choice of different ear gels and a flexible behind-the-ear fit, it stays firmly Eargels™ and comfortably in place. It’s also tough. With Military Grade Rain, Dust and Shock Protection it is fit for any challenge, indoors or outdoors.

The Jabra SPORT comes with a free download of Endomondo Sports Tracker, a fitness tracking application for smartphones that functions as a motivational tool for running, giving quick updates on speed, distance, and lap time.  Endomondo allows users to visually see past running routes on their smartphone via a GPS tracking feature.  The Endomondo Sports Tracker app is designed to work with 
iPhone®, Android or BlackBerry® handsets."

  1. I dont really need wireless for sports but it would be great to have some so the wire doesnt get in the way all the time.
    It would be great for my kids too.
