Jabra Sport Review
The Jabra sport is built with a rugged rubber shell which is water resistant and dirt proof. It holds out to that claim as through our tests we were able to use the headphones in all scenarios of life. The buttons work great even when are attacked by water, sweat or dust.
The sound quality in the headphones is good, the peaks are great and do not clip. The Mid levels and Bass levels are accurate and are easily justifiable. The bass is not as deep because the ear gels don’t seal of the ear canal, so a lot of bass and audio is leaked out. Good reproduction of sound means that the headphones will hold up to their name.
There is also active noise cancellation, which according to us is decent, and one cannot expect it to eliminate the ambient noise, but it does add some benefits.
Apart from the active noise cancellation, the headphones also have a FM tuner which will stream FM directly to the headphones, using the net band cable as an antenna. The quality of FM is questionable, while it works great outdoors, the reception indoors receives a lot of static. Tuning the FM can also be a task as you have to literally assume what channel you are on.
Design and Comfort
While the material on the Jabra sport is soft touch and feels good initially, some might complain about the design of the headphones as they might easily slide off the ear. If your ears are small you may be one of the first to complain about this.
The headphones are lightweight and do not hurt even after prolonged hours of usage.
The Build, Sound and Design are all good, But at a price of Rs. 4999 they seem overpriced. The bass levels are a tad bit lower than wow and audio would have improved several notches only if there would have been in ear gels in the package. The dual device connectivity, stereo A2Dp and active noise cancellation put them in the premium range. The fact that they are water, sweat and dust resistant make them a worthwhile option for those who are active and like outdoor sports.
