The folks at Jabra have released their latest Bluetooth headset. This one is the Jabra Sport Wireless+ and is arriving as a follow up to the Jabra Sport. This latest keeps a similar design, but did bring some key improvements. Perhaps key here though, this is a headset that should appeal to runners or cyclists — or basically anyone looking to ditch the tangle of wires.
Some of the features of the Jabra Sport Wireless+ include a bump in battery life and a new fit clip. The headset also ships with a variety of eargels which should allow for a close fit. Jabra is touting this one as being the “ultimate fitness headset” and aside from being able to get away from the wires — it brings goodies to include the ability to handle voice calls and also audio.
The headset has military-grade protection against rain (sweat), dust and shock. This one pairs with your phone using Bluetooth. Specifically, Bluetooth 3.0. Aside from simply listening, the headset also has a full set of controls which will allow you to raise/lower the volume, skip tracks and take any incoming calls. While this will pair nicely with a phone, it can also be used by itself. There is a built-in FM radio.
Looking outside of the hardware features, Jabra has also partnered with Endomondo and is offering a three month subscription with purchase. Endomondo Premium allows you to track your workout progress with GPS but also includes extra features such as training programs, analysis, workout comparisons and peer benchmarks.
That all being said, Jabra has said the Sport Wireless+ Bluetooth headset should be able to provide up to 4 hours of talk time and up to 120 hours on standby. Those looking to make a purchase will be able to find the Sport Wireless+ direct with Jabra and also with other retailers such as Amazon and Verizon Wireless. The headset is black with yellow accents and currently priced at $99.99.
