Jabra specializes in sports-focused wireless earphones. The Jabra Elite Sport earphones ($250) are the company’s magnum opus of sorts, with built-in sensors to measure heart-rate and VO2 Max fitness, and providing a voice in your ear that coaches you through your workouts. More importantly, these are Jabra’s only truly wireless earbuds. Originally announced in late 2016, Jabra updated the Jabra Elite Sport earphones this year to double its battery life (each earbud now has a 4.5-hour lifespan). And because they’re still IP67-rated, these earbuds are actually designed to handle a workout. AirPods, on the other hand, are not.
No truly wireless earbuds are cheap and the Jabra Elite Sport earphones are no exception. You can find them on Amazon or Best Buy for $250 (wow), but you can also rest easy knowing that you’re getting the best sport-focused wireless earbuds you can buy. However, if you pounce now you can get these same earbuds for $90 on eBay — that’s 64 percent or $160 off.
Note: These headphones are “manufacturer refurbished,” which can be a red flag for some. If you need some reassurance, it comes with a one-year warranty and a 30-day return policy.
