Review: Jabra SPORT PULSE Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Earbuds with Built-In Heart Rate Monitor

If you’ve ever gone jogging with cheap headphones or earbuds then you know how annoying it is to get low quality sound, have them falling all over the place, and even breaking if they fall off and hit the ground. With the SPORT PULSE wireless Bluetooth earbuds from Jabra you’ll be singing along with your favorites while you work up a sweat no problem.

These earbuds offer a wealth of useful features, probably the best of which is its easy to use wireless Bluetooth capabilities. Any Bluetooth connective device sets up easy and starts transmitting high quality audio right into the Dolby sound enhanced earbuds. You can hook it up to your phone before you jog and control your calls and music with the in-line controls no problem.

These aren’t your run of the mill earbuds either, they are tested for their strength, ability to withstand a drop, and are even dirt, humidity, and water tested all up to military grade standards. You won’t find a tougher pair of earbuds out there, these will be with you rain or shine.

They’re good for more than just playing your music, too. The Jabra wireless Bluetooth earbuds also have biometric in-ear heart rate monitoring that you can sync with the Jabra App on your phone. You can use the app to calibrate the earbuds for fitness and heart rate measurement, training management, and even three fitness tests all included.

They also play well with others, working just fine with a wide range of popular fitness apps for iOS and Android devices if you already have a favorite that you like to use. It also works with non-fitness apps like Spotify so you can listen to your favorite music with one app while still getting your fitness information at the same time.

Unfortunately as with all electronics there are some potential issues with the Jabra earbuds. Despite an average of five hours on the battery life (which is exceptional on its own) there are some reports of the battery occasionally not lasting as long as advertised or even going out. Other users, albeit rarely, have reported disconnects with their phone and the in-line controls becoming nonresponsive. In many cases Jabra customer support has worked to resolve the issue but the issues themselves are few and far between.

As far as earbuds go, the Jabra SPORT PULSE earbuds aren’t on the low end of the price scale. At a regular price of about $200 they can be a bit spendy but with their high quality, fitness features, and overall toughness you’re definitely getting what you pay for.

Overall they’re a great choice if you’re tired of cheap earbuds and headphones that fall out/off and offer subpar quality.
