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...

Jabra Elite Active 65t: Better sound than AirPods, for a bit more money

 

The sporty version of Jabra's already wireless earphones have a few extras that put it over the top.

The Jabra Active Elite 65t are fully sweat-resistant truly wireless earphones that fit comfortably and securely. They sound excellent, perform reliably and are great for making calls, with two microphones in each earpiece. Battery life is decent at 5...

The relatively tight, noise-isolating fit isn't for everyone. Motion sensor doesn't have much use at this point.

The Jabra Active Elite 65t truly wireless earphones are the best alternative to Apple's AirPods, but the stepdown non-Elite model will save you a bit of cash.

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: Worthy AirPod rivals are like a Fitbit for your ears

 

Jabra's Sport Elite is a totally wireless waterproof headphone that features two separate cord-free earbuds and an in-ear heart-rate monitor.

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 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...
