    Great workout solution, likely eclipsed by watch

    I have been using this headset for several months now and enjoy it, but can't say I love them. I bought it for the ease of having the integrated heart rate sensor and automatic data readout, both great features. However, I still need a mobile phone to synch it with for GPS, app and data storage and wearing a phone on your arm isn't nearly as natural as a watch. Integrate a medical-quality HR sensor into a watch along with GPS and synch to bluetooth headphones, like these, that perform readout from the app, and you're golden. So, while these headphones perform their job well, they are short-lived. The Jabra sports app doesn't let you log into a website and see your data, and its export to other apps is limited. You can use this app with Runtastic and a few other services, however some functions are missing, such as the automatic readout. The bluetooth tends to disconnect from the phone a couple of times every 120 seconds or so, and if you don't tie back the connecting wire on the back of your neck, the slapping of the wire creates a banging noise in your ears that can be annoying. Overall, I'm happy with these headphones, but only until the perfect running watch comes out (the Garmin Fenix 4 with built-in HR sensor), then I'll just use them as bluetooth running headphones.

    Great for those who love to work out

    The sport plus headphone are pretty sweet. They do exactly what they claim to do. Being an athlete, i love to keep track of my heart rate to get the actual burned calorie amount. You can also press a button that tells you what your heart rate is at, how many miles your at, and the time which is pretty neat. Pros: detects your heart rate accurately, looks pretty stylish,and i like the app that syncs with it. (is very easy to use.) Cons: Sound quality. The only thing i really dont like about these headphones is that the sound quality is terrible. They have the same quality of the apple headphones that come with an iphone. When im running, i want to hear the deep base that other headphones can produce. They also hurt your ear after an hour of working out (when you take them out or adjust them) Other than that, i would recommend them for those who love to workout. However for weight training, i think the lack of quality in sound becomes apparent.

    Great fitness/music combo headset

    I know there are "better sound quality" headsets, but first of all, if the customer is using the headset while doing physical/cardio activities, having a "better sound quality" headset might not be what one wants due to the better sealing of the headset to ear canal surface area; thus hard to hear any outside background noises that might help alert the customer of dangerous situations. Using this headset, the sound quality suffers a little due to hearing background (outside) noise, but still sounds good. And the fact that you can obtain your heart rate at any time is awesome, especially for the cardio enthusiasts. Kind of a give and take situation for these headphone set. If I needed a headphone set that I can use in the gym or outside for cardio or physical exercises, this is an awesome headphone brand set. If I am using a headphone set to hear great sound quality (tremble/clarity/bass,ect), and dont mind not hearing outside background noise, them I would choose another headset brand.

    Good, but not amazing

    Good: Connects to phone via Bluetooth fast Good sound quality after having gone online and downloaded the latest headphone drivers (actually not very hard to do) Stay in the ear very well (when running and exercising) So far the hear rate works fairly well Bad: Battery life 3-4 hrs (usually can get 2.5 workouts in on a charge) Sound quality was bad until did driver update (or at least it seemed like) Was hard to get the buds to say in at first ( there are ears that come out of the buds that you have to put underneath your ear, once you do that they stay in very well) Overall: Get them is my recommendation, however make sure the get the geek squad protection with them just in case (go it on mine). Well worth the money for the heart rate feature. Probably the "best bang for your buck" Bluetooth workout headphones.

    Good product with a bad iPhone app

    I have been using this product for a month and it works perfectly. Much better than using a chest strap heart monitor. The sound when playing music is decent and the earbuds stay in place unlike the other product that had problems with. I however don't like the Jabra sport app that is used with this product. The app keeps loosing the heart rate and that too in the middle of the run. This happens particularly when i wear a hoodie or something to cover my head and face as i run early in the mornings. But the Strava app that i also use for my runs still keeps the connection to the earbuds. You cannot edit the activity too once it is done. And the apps keeps warning me that the data has been corrupted and closes the app. This happens overtime i use the app. It works perfectly when i open it the second time. Except for the app, the earbuds are an excellent product.

    Great music, good heart rate, mediocre app

    The earbuds take a little getting used to- they are definitely a snug fit. I find it easiest to rotate them back and forth until they are well-seated in my ear. Pairing wasn't seamless, but wasn't too bad either. It took a minute or two of fussing with it. The heart rate performs pretty well compared to a chest strap. The app is generally pretty and the getting started process was pleasant. The in-run app was a little annoying with the breathy voice for pace and heart rate info. By the end of my run, I just wanted her to "spit it out already!" The GPS pace was way off, but I think the distance was right. Fortunately the weaknesses of the product are with the app and could be fixed with updates. The price is a bit steep for the features, but overall a good product.

    Amazing and durable headphones

    These are everything you want in a pair of Bluetooth headphones. The sounds is of a pleasant quality and the volume is great for others like myself that work in noisy environments. I had a one other pair that survived being ran over by a vehicle in a parking lot(glued the pieces back together and they worked like day 1) and dropped in a hot tub(let dry for a few hours; no damage). My only issue is the lack of a mini potato chip clip to clip the cord to the back collar of my shirt. Having this would make a game changing experience for me as the cord will try to grab my neck when I turn my head pulling at one of the buds. Also, I usually only have one ear bud in so the loose one will weigh down and pull at the bud in my ear.

    I returned mine but may work for some.

    I returned these because the ear tips were really uncomfortable. It may be an issue specific to me however I found them uncomfortable after just a few minutes of wear. Pairing was easy and sound was OK, but not nearly as good as JayBird BluebudsX (owned prior) or Powerbeats2 (swapped these out for the Beats). If your into sound, I'd suggest either Bluebuds or Powerbeats. If that's not as of big as concern than likely these will work great for you. If the tips were more comfortable and the sound was more rich and full I'd have kept them. But @ $200, I expect a little more.

    Better than Beats Byfar

    Ended up getting these when I took my beats blu tooth ear buds back. Those had way to much base that cause them to sound distorted. These are by far superior to those. Sound quality if good and can be great when you get a tight fit and use their app vs itunes. Don't really care for their app because it has to resync each time you open it, but does improve the sound quality. Fit is good, still trying to get the perfect fit using all of the different options. Fits snug without falling out due to fit and weight. Havent lost signal while using. Overall very happy.

    Jabra - Sport Pulse Wireless Earbud Headphones

    Pros: Measures heart rate accurately, done this by measuring myself on the treadmill while wearing the earphones. The speakers from the earbuds is more than loud enough to hear in a crowded gym. The bluetooth signal never gets cut off when my phone was next to me. Cons: Battery life only when comparing to the JayBirds BlueBuds X (8hrs battery life), but the 5hrs from the Jabra is pretty long still. On two occasion the heart rate monitor does not detect my heart rate I had to re-adjust the earphones or get my heart rate up for it to work again.

    The sound qualiity is pretty good. They don't slip out of my ears. However, the heart rate monitor is not as accurate as I would like. I've had this for about a month now and there were at least three times that I had to reset the headphones to get an accurate reading on my heart rate. Plus, the app goes to sleep mode. My other fitness app that I used with my Mio watch was constantly on so you can see your heart rate all the time. I would recommend this only if you don't care to see a steady reading of your heart rate.

    Heart Rate Headphones

    The heart rate monitor is ok, just to have to wiggle the headset to start monitoring. Able to use as headphone and the receiver don't seem to have any problems. The bluetooth is ok, you can't really go far away from the phone and sometime, it skip a beat even though the phone is next to you. I like how the cord is long enough that I look like I am wearing a headset connected to the phone. Overall, I am content of functionality especially I am able to use the protection plan if there is any problems.

    Great Headphones AND Heart Monitor

    Fit perfectly, stay in during workouts, and have great sound quality. Only criticism I have is a lack of volume - I'm not hearing impaired, but like it LOUD. They just don't quite reach that level. I tried two other models of bluetooth sport headphones before these and they were awful in comparison. As for the heart monitor, what can I say? It works great and the Android App is very handy to track progress.

    I'm not much of a music guy when it comes down to sound quality. I just wanted a pair dependable and wireless noise canceling headphones. It does a great job in doing so. It took me a couple tries before finding one that fits perfectly. It doesn't fall off when I use it for running and lifting weights. The battery life on these are about four hours. The Jabra app you have to download works great and read my heart rate accurately.

    Have lasted longer than any Bluetooth headphones I had in the past. Jay buds would last me about a month before exchange. I've jabra sports for two months with no issues. Battery life is the only downfall so far as they only last about 4.5 hours. The heart beat tracking is nice but after a month of use I turned it off. It would be nice if it worked with nike plus running app. More positives than negatives for this headset!

    High Potential for Great Use

    This item has a neat app that can keep you working out. I've had a few issues with weird Bluetooth dropping out and I'm not sure the app is tracking miles when one is on a treadmill, but the device lasts plenty long and is a no hassle head set. The heart beat tracking feature is great because the headset will periodically tell you when you need to up your game. Worth the price even though it's expensive.

    I have tried almost all blue tooth ear buds. They all claim to fit perfect but so far these are the best fitting ear buds i have ever used. Sound quality great but not enought base for my taste. If you want ear buds that will stick to your ears like glue through your workouts with pretty good sound quality, then this is the perfect product for you.

    Awesome sound, HR didn't always keep up

    Ear phones provide awesome sound but the HR monitor has to be positioned correctly at all times In order for it to get a reading. Sometimes when jumping or running I guess it move just enough for it to not be able to receive a good reading. But nevertheless it is an amazing product, and along with the Java app it helps take your work out to the next level

    These are great headphones. I find them to be much more comfortable than beats and the Jaybird X2s. The heart rate monitor is very accurage and this also works well with Runkeeper. I give it 4 stars because I had to make a warranty return due to a malfunction with one of the buttons. Haven't had the issue again though.
