Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Review

Jabra Elite Sport True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds Review

I love the freedom of Bluetooth earphones, but I am getting a little fed up with the tangle of wires, the fact they get stuck on the back of my neck and the mass of cables when charging them. So I thought I’d give these Jabra Elite Sport Earbuds a go, they are “True” wireless, which means they are single earbuds for each ear.

They are also the best reviewed true wireless earbuds I have seen around. After attempting with 4 other different brands, these are my last ditch attempt.

They arrive with a modern looking charging box. This has a non-slip plastic top, which when opened shows the two earbuds. They each have connectors, allowing them to to be charged in the box! This means I can carry and charge them with me. The box is charged via micro-USB, using the cable included.

There are two green LEDs to indicate that the earbuds are charging. I was disapointed to see no magntics in the box, which means that if you open it upside down, they will (and have) fall out.

The box itself can hold 4 charges, and as the headphones have 180 mins of battery each, that’s a lot of battery power. Then when at home I can just click them in the box and charge them, and the box.

They fitted in my ears really well but came with additional buds encase I had any fitting issues. These use the Bluetooth 4.1, which I think helped with what I think has been the best conenction for any true wireless earbuds I have used. They had a snug fit in my ears, and I could move my head all around, walk into a room, and still here the smooth sounds of The Spinners.

The sound was pretty good too, with very little sound bleeding.
