Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Headphones

Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Headphones

The Jabra Elite Sport is a rival of the Apple AirPod in many ways, but it also wins over the AirPod in certain aspect. Battery life, for one, is a huge win for Jabra. Where Apple's offerings only net you 2 hours per charge, the Jabra Elite Sport has an estimated battery life of 4.5 hours, which is more than double its rival. The accompanying case comes with at least two more charges of the same length amounting to 13.5 hours of total playtime.

Being a sports earphone, the upgraded Jabra Elite Sport is fully waterproof. It also comes with its own built-in heart-rate monitor. Pretty much everything about the headset screams must-buy. It's everything the previous version of the Jabra Elite Sport had and more. It has a longer battery life and tons of added features. It also works just as well used as single as it does with stereo buds and boasts excellent compatibility with third-party fitness apps and Jabra's very own companion fitness app. The only problem with it, probably, is its price.

With a retail price of $250, the Jabra Elite Sport is not cheap, especially when you compare it to its direct competition, the Apple Airpod, which sells for $160 in retail stores. The added $90 premium is a deal breaker, even with double the battery life. It's also a bit too bulky for most people; if it doesn't fit right in your ears and get a tight seal, you'll lose sound quality, which is not good. But, if you're looking for a dedicated fitness wireless sports earphone that will last longer than your entire morning workout with a single charge, the Jabra Elite Sport is at least worth a look.
