Wires are the limits for music. We are unable to listen music properly while doing exercise as wires comes in our way. It’s time to break these limits and cut the earphone chords. Today, we will be taking a look at the Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Earbuds Headphone.
Jabra is a well-known brand for their wireless headsets and speakers. They launched the Jabra Elite Sport True wireless headphones last to last year (September, 2016).
These headphones were truly made for athletes. They offer some extraordinary features like heart rate monitoring (HRM) and accelerometer for tracking footsteps while running and walking.

They are not cheap at all. We will be taking a look at all the aspects of these earphones including build quality, design, fit, connectivity, features, battery backup and sound. Let’s get started with the build and design.
Build and Design
Jabra Elite Sport True wireless headphones are huge in size. They might be one of the biggest ones that I have seen so far.
They are built with high quality material. They are Ip67 certified. It means that they are sweat proof and waterproof up-to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
They have got a black and minimalist look to them. These headphones don’t use touch sensitivity.
They do have physical buttons on both the earbuds. On the left earbud, you get volume up and down buttons.
Whereas on the right earbud, you get turn on/pair buttons. The buttons are pretty tactile but you will have to push your ear whenever you need to access the buttons.
Fit & Comfort
The headphones come with 3 different sizes earbuds. You will have to choose your fit by yourself.
Once you choose the right fit, you are good to go. The headphones are quite comfortable but you will notice some pain after 1 hour of usage.
The headphones are made for athletes. So, 1 hour of usage is enough. They won’t fall while doing activities like running etc.
Sometimes while pushing the buttons you might feel pain in ears. You can even use single earbud to listen to music or calls.
Although large size makes for a potentially difficult fit.
Jabra Elite Sport True wireless earbud has its own application which is available for both android and iOS platforms.
The applications have a lot of features. You can set up a goal and it will notify once you achieve it. You can activate features like heart rate monitoring (HRM) and have a look on them directly through the application.
The headphones do not come with an inbuilt gps but it will connect via the gps in your smartphone.
You can make it guide you. It will give you voice commands of directions. You can simply set up the location in the application.
The user interface of the application is very simple and easy to understand. It’s very easy to pair both the earbuds together through the application.
This is the best reason to buy these pair of headphones. It offers a wide variety of extraordinary features like heart rate monitoring (HRM), accelerometer and Ip67 certification.
You can monitor your heart rate, footsteps, calories with these earphones. These features make it really cool fitness earphones.
As it is made for athletes, they can enjoy music while exercising and can have an eye on their health statistics.
These features make it more than just a music accessory. The accuracy of heart rate monitor in this headphone is really good but it’s still not 100% accurate.
You can even swim with these earphones while listening to music.
Battery Backup & Compatibility
The battery life of Jabra Elite Sport True earbud headphone is just average. The company guarantees battery backup of 3 hours.
You can easily get battery life of two and half hours in a full charge. Jabra Elite Sport True takes 9 hours to charge completely.
It is 2 times more than the guaranteed battery backup. It comes with a lifesaving feature called fast charge.
It helps you to charge the headphones for 1-hour music playable time in just 15 minutes.

Now let’s head over to one of the main aspects of a headphone which is obviously the sound. The sound of these Jabra elite sport is really impressive.
The quality of sound is good. They handle bass-heavy tracks remarkably well. It gives the music a bass boost.
We can’t compare the sound quality of these earphones by any other wired earphones. It sounds very good while doing activities like exercising but it can’t be your primary headphone to listen music.
The headphone comes with a lifesaving feature to play sound from the mic to the speaker. While exercising in gym or jogging in the garden, you must be aware.
This feature will help you to be aware at all the times while listening to your music. You can switch this feature on/off via application.
