Exercising while listening to music is awesome. Suffering the indignity of having your earbuds yanked out in public because the wires got caught on something is not awesome. It is the opposite of awesome. Fortunately, Jabra at IFA 2011 has created a new set of wireless headphones just for exercisers, and the benefits extend far beyond the lack of a cord.
The Jabra Sport is a set of Bluetooth enabled headphones. It has a built-in mic, so you can receive calls using the headphones, as well. Users can enjoy a built-in FM radio and enhanced bass performance. More importantly, they’re built to last through anything. The Jabra Sport is US Military Standard Rain, Dust, and Shock Resistant certified, and the mic is wind-shielded. You can also access a complimentary app, the Endomondo Sports Tracker, which gives you updates on speed, distance traveled, and lap times. Better yet, you can track previous running routes using the GPS of any iOS, Android, or BlackBerry smartphone.
If, for whatever reason, you want to stick with the wires, the Jabra Sport-Corded is the same product, just with wires instead of Bluetooth technology. The Jabra Sport will retail for $99, and its corded cousin will retail for $69 when they hit Apple, Sprint and T-Mobile stores and Amazon.com in September.
