I had a nightmare scenario last week: I got one mile into my eight-mile run, only to have the batteries of my wireless headphones die. I then had to suffer an hour (who am I kidding? It was more like 80mins) of nothing but my heavy breathing, traffic, rowdy college students and squeaky right trainer to listen to. You see, I have always found that music increases my performance, blocks out any annoying brain chatter and generally just makes my runs more enjoyable.
Chances are you have heard of the Jabra brand. If not, then why not? These guys created the world’s first ultra noise-cancelling microphone, the world’s first Bluetooth headset and the world’s first sports headphones with integrated heart rate monitor. I think its safe to say these guys aren’t comfortable coming second to anyone else.
The Engage 75 Convertible from Jabra is a wireless headset designed for office use, it has been engineered to give more power to your conversations and has industry-leading wireless performance and density. It uses an advanced noise-cancelling microphone for clear audio and reduced distractions letting your focus solely on the person on the other end of the phone, the lightweight headset weighs in at just 18g for all day comfortable wear.
Jabra set expectations high with their description of the Sport Elite headphone by stating, “With 16 years of Bluetooth experience and a unique expertise in sound quality, the Jabra Elite Sport wireless earbuds guarantee superior sound and call quality.” Let’s take a look and see if they can live up to the hype.
