The portability of smartphones and MP3 music players has created an interesting sub-category of sports tech, with dozens of smartphone apps dedicated to tracking workouts, recording the distances you cycle, managing your calorie intake and supporting you towards a workout goal. This in turn has tech designers thinking about gym junkies and marathon runners when creating new products, with the Jabra Sports range fitting snugly into this category.
The design of Jabra's corded sports headphones is the standout feature here. The ear buds sit on the end of curved ear loops, securing the buds at the entrance of your ear canal even while you jerk, bob and weave during exercise. We found this design comfortable, but wished that the ear buds could be manipulated so as to fit a little tighter.
