Jabra Sport and Jabra Sport Corded are two new stereo headsets combining Bluetooth compatibility for streaming music and taking calls, with rugged build designed for sport.
Jabra Sport comprises of two earpieces which hook onto each ear and are connected by a non-stick band around the back of the neck.
Tap the play button on one earpiece to accept an incoming call while running and use the rocker to adjust the volume, a neat extra is the FM transmitter which searches for radio stations for you to listen too.
Suitable for use in rain and general outdoor use, Jabra Sport complies to US Military Standard Rain, Dust and Shock certification, although it isn’t aren’t waterproof. Jabra anticipates you’ll get around 3-6 hours talk time and 8-10 hours of music per charge.
Interesting Jabra has partnered with sports training app Endomondo, offering a free download of the app, extras verbal updates on the distance covered by voice through the headset, along with words of encouragement sent by fellow Endomonodo users.
Jabra Sport-Corded offers very similar features to the Sport, including conforming to the same standard of ruggedness. However the ear pieces are a lot slimmer and instead of being wireless, the cable plugs into the 3.5mm jack of your mobile phone, with short and long lengths to choose from.
Both headsets include three ear gels to help provide a comfortable fit whatever your ear size and an arm band for your mobile phone.
Available in standard and Made for iPhone versions, the Jabra Sport and Jabra Sport Corded cost £99 and £59.99 respectively and will be available from Amazon from the end of September. We’re currently trying out both pairs of headsets and will bring our findings as soon as possible.
