    Comfortable, accurate heart rate, & good audio

    Posted
    EverydayFella

    I've bought a couple of these devices so far (one for me and one as a gift#. I must say that I'm superbly impressed with them. To date, I've evaluated numerous optical heart rate monitors, and I am especially fond of companies that use PerformTek as the basis for their heart rate monitoring, as I've found this technology to be by far the most accurate and reliable. Several companies have been using PerformTek in their earbuds, and at least one company #Scosche# has used it in their arm bands. But I must say that when it comes to earbuds using PerformTek, Jabra got it right. I'm quite impressed with what Jabra brought to the table with this product -- incredible European engineering in audio, ergonomics and user experience. Also, they made sure that this biometric sports headset works with not only their own native app #which is surprisingly quite good# but also with leading mobile fitness apps #such as MapMyFitness, Runkeeper, Endomondo, Strava, etc.#. Likes: 1) Jabra's ergonomics are quite impressive -- especially considering that they needed to find a way to fit in the heart rate sensor into the earbuds while still having it be comfortable and have good audio. Also, they have several options for ear gels, and they even provide a "fit test" on the mobile app so that you can see which ear gels work best on your ear. 2) Audio quality -- fantastic. 3) Size & weight -- this is the most sophisticated, high-compact sports computer I've ever tested. Jabra packs a lot of power in these lightweight, tiny earbuds. 4# Mobile app -- I have an iPhone, and so I can't speak to the Android implementation. But so far, I've had not a single app crash testing with Jabra's app or anyone else's app paired with the device. Jabra's native app #which is not required for you to use since their device works with all the apps# is surprisingly good as it has a number of built-in fitness tests and a cool feature that allows you to setup your own workout with voice prompts. 5) Extra features -- Jabra added a button on the left earbud that, when you press it, tells you your instant heart rate, cadence and what ever other metric you program it to state. Also, the charge port is hidden in the right earbud. 6) Phone call feature -- I've found that the microphone is quite good and convenient for phone calls. In fact, sometimes I just leave the headset on me post exercise and use the headset as my phone. Dislikes: 1) Cable -- the cable is quite nice, but I do wish it moved more freely over my shirt. 2) Color -- I'd prefer a sportier color, but I understand that this their 1st product. 3) Really, I'm struggling for dislikes, as this is an amazing feat of engineering by Jabra. Bottom line: The Sport Pulse is the most sophisticated, comfortable, accurate and easy-to-use audio sports computer ever developed. If you like to exercise listening to music, and if you like tracking your heart rate zones, you'll love this product: good audio, great comfort and fit and supremely accurate continuous heart rate monitoring.

    Love Them

    All I can say is wow. The only reason why I purchased these was because I had to return my Lebron PowerBeats 2. They would consistently disconnect while working out or just listening to music. I purchased the 2 year warranty on them and when I went to exchange them the Customer Service person said that I could exchange them for the same ones but they do not offer the 2 year extended warranty anymore. "Too many returns"... So I had to find an equivalent valued blue tooth headphones and I found these. I knew jabra had goo blue tooth headsets for calling but wasnt sure how good they were for music which is what I use these mainly for. Sound quality is fantastic and phone calls are clear as a whistle. Oh and these also have the heart rate monitor and work out trainer App which works flawlessly. One thing I did not like about the Powerbeats 2 was that they were not noise canceling and used a hook around the ear to keep them from falling out or moving while working out. These use an in ear hook which comes in different size. There was one that fit my ears perfect. I can work out without these budging and best of all is these are noise cancelling. I also ride a motorcycle and these work great since they do not have the outer ear hooks so I can wear my helmet and listen to my music and answer calls while riding. My only gripe would be I wish they were good for 8 hours of listening to music instead of 4.5 hours

    Where do I begin.... When I bought these, I was on the hunt for some great headphones that would last and not die on me. So I had done no research on any up to the time of my purchase. But I did spend about 1 hour in the headphones aisle until I settled on the Jabras. I already had a smart watch (until I bought these headphones). I found it extremely useful to have the fitness features (distance count, cadence, HR monitor, and music etc) in the headphones and app. The app is extremely simplistic and attractive as well as EASY to use and figure out. I tested the Jabra HR feature against my smart watch and I found that it was accurate; what a relief. Then that part of me was leaning towards the buyer's remorse. But I am over that feeling now, and I am more than happy with my purchase. I love that I can tap a button on the headphones to start my work-out, double tap to call last called, the battery life is great, and the sound quality is great for the bluetooth technology. I've heard decent (sound quality) bluetooth headphones, but these are great... And I love that now my wrist is free from a device during my workout. I feel like I gained some motion back? Any who, these are worth the money. They come with a sturdy case to carry them in as well....

    Perfect - exactly what I was looking for

    I went wireless to run on a treadmill. I have knocked my phone off the base before because the wires just got all tangled up. I switched to Bluetooth a couple of years ago but never really got the experience I was looking for. These are perfect. You can tighten the cord so it doesn't dangle and dance. They fit tightly in your ear so their is no need to adjust. I can also lay down to do weight training without losing these. The app is great. I have used it to track my fitness outdoors and record using the gps as well as establish the right cadence so it tracks pretty close even on the treadmill. Only negative is the calorie count is way off. You will find that comment on the Jabra website as well. It is about half the calories the my fitness app calculates as well as what my treadmill calculates. The sound settings are great as well - these sound like high end headphones as well.

    First off let me say that I didn't want them at first of course I wanted the beats. But there is no comparison to these when it comes to what you get besides quality sound, which they kinda suck in comparison. They tell you how far you ran, heat rate, stays in your ear, how many calories you burn, what area of intensity u are in, map of area u ran or walked GPS the area and give u a map and show which part/area you intensified your workout.You can tweet or FB your results and take a memorable picture and save your results. You gets lots of battery life, these are fn awesome!!!!! I have taken my workouts to whole new level with these. So yeah, the Beats are for music and these are for working out and knowing what, where and how to train & what heart rate to maximize.... Love em!!!!! Love them!!!!

    Jabra Sport Pulse for the win!

    These Jabra Sport Pulse bluetooth ear buds are by far the best sounding most comfortable I have owned and the battery life is awesome! I've tried the Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth buds in the past and recently the Jaybird BlueBuds X Sport and they just don't compare, they're not as comfortable and don't have the cinema like sound even when sealed in your ear. The clarity and nice deep bass the Jabra Sport's puts out is amazing and the free app works great with my HTC ONE phone when working out at the gym. They also have a better design so they stay in your ear unlike the Jaybirds and other less expensive brands. Buy these Jabra buds, you get what you pay for!

    Best earbuds I've used

    Posted
    Ryno

    I have very uniquely shaped ears. As a result, very few earbuds work for me, especially wireless earbuds. With all the different options available to customize how they fit, these work perfectly. The app works seamlessly and can be launched and managed using the button on the side of the earbud rather than unlocking your phone and launching the app manually. The app tracks everything you would ever need to know and it seems very accurate. It gets more accurate as you perform the fitness and heart rate tests. These are by far the best wireless/fitness earbuds on the market. I HIGHLY recommend them.

    Best Headphones I ever owned

    These are awesome. I use them 4 times a week both at the Gym and running or cycling. The noise cancellation is too good, so extra caution when running. Perfect for the Gym. Heartbeat monitor works better than my moto 360 watch. Battery, I only have to charge once a week and i get about 3 to 4 solid hours of battery life. I also got the best buy replacement plan because they are portable and anything can happen. Great Value for the money. I paid about $250 all in with device and replacement plan. I would buy these again.

    Weird at First, but then Great

    The ear-buds started off weird. They wouldn't sense my pulse, despite the different configurations I used with regards to the ear pieces. However, after a couple weeks and since the ear-buds have been tracking my pulse consistently. They have been fantastic as they have really provided me a minute-by-minute tracking of my pulse, and the sound is really nice too. The Bluetooth works seamlessly, and was super easy to set up. Not sure what the issue was at first, but they've been awesome. I usually run on a treadmill, and configuring the headphones to track distance properly was easy. LOVE THEM!

    I have been looking for a pair of workout headphones that work for android.I own power beats by dre not impressed.So I started my journey I Found the Jabra sport pulse, after reading review i gave them a chance, wow sounds way better than my beats. The sound is top of the line almost as good a Bose.The reasons why I chose these over Bose was Bluetooth headset and heart rate monitor. It's awesome to not have a cord plunged into your phone.These are worth every penny!! And they stay in your ear were my beats didn't.

    Many ear buds don't fit me and are uncomfortable. These fit like a glove. Being able to monitor my heart rate during exercise has been very helpful. I now know when I am exercising at a level.that is going achieve results. Great for interval work and to gauge if you are burning fat. The monitor tells you what heart rate zone you are in and you can set up on the app how often it provides audio updates.

    I have been looking for a good set of Bluetooth earbuds. It was a real bonus to get these that have a built heart monitor. Normally you have to wear a smart watch (expensive) to monitor heart rate while working out. In the ear heart monitoring is less expensive. The audio quality is excellent, and the app is way more robust than smart watch apps. Great value.

    I bought these because to use when I run. They work great! I'm a heavy sweater and they stayed on my ears with no problems. One night I got caught in the rain and they still rated in my ears and they didn't have any problems staying connected or just saying on. The battery is long enough for me. I typically charge these after a couple of uses vs waiting for the battery to totally die down.

    Best headphones I've ever owned for running. They stay in your ears and yet are very comfortable. It is easy to change songs and adjust the volume without breaking stride. In the amount of data big job or a provide you about your workout is phenomenal. I would recommend these earphones to anyone who loves to run and is interested in tracking their pace,heart rate, and workout intensity.

    Expensive but a Great Set of Wireless Buds

    Returned Harman Yurbuds Leap Wireless and bought these. Holy smokes - night and day compared to the Yurbuds. VERY comfortable and secure. Lightweight and connects easy to device. Sound is great for wireless earphones, though doesn't have deep bass (they're not Beats after all). Includes downloadable apps for working out which I haven't explored yet but seem interesting.

    This was a great purchase. By selecting the correct silicone included attachments these headphones are very comfortable. They are extremely light and very useful. Jogging, walking, working out in anyway I have come to enjoy my music again while working out. And when I receive a call everyone says they can hear me great, even with wind and cars buzzing by.

    I was hesitant to invest so much money into a pair of headphones, but I'm glad I did. They sound great, and the heart rate workout monitor is actually quite useful. The best part is the nice snug fit in my ears. First pair of headphones I've ever owned that didn't have a problem coming out of my ears. Very happy with the purchase.

    These headphones are amazing. I use them all the time for working out. The only 2 complaints are 1) No option for indoor treadmill running. This is only an issue when receiving distance feed back while running on treadmill. The distance shouldn't try to calculate. 2) Iphone connectivity through Bluetooth. This is an issue with the Iphone ....not the headphones

    I've owned powerbeats2 and jaybird bluebuds x. By far, the design, quality, clarity and bass easily surpass their competitors. The battery life is descent. The heart rate feature with the complementary app is amazing. They actually look cool and small in your ears unlike the jaybirds and the beats. These ear buds have a perfect balanice in my oponion.
