Jabra outs high-performance wireless earbuds with heart rate monitor
Wireless earbuds and earphones have changed the face of audio entertainment for good. Now, earbuds such as Samsung Gear IconX and the recently launched Elite Sport by Jabra are putting equal focus on audio and fitness. Designed with a near accurate heart rate monitor within, Jabra Elite Sport features an intelligent voice coach that helps you train better and enjoy music simultaneously. The waterproof earbuds promise three hours of playback and come with a carrying case that doubles as a charger to enhance playtime to nine hours.
Jabra has earned a name for delivering earphones with immaculate sound quality. The company retains great audio quality in the Elite Sport as well. According to the company, the noise cancelling earbuds offer amazing sound when it comes to receiving phone calls. The earbuds have a pair of microphones in each side and have a unique audio passthrough feature, which lets you hear noise from outside when you want.
Receiving a phone call with earbuds in the ears is amazingly cool with Elite Sport. You can pick a phone call with voice command.
For fitness, the earbuds come with a heart rate monitor and an audio coach. The coach uses Jabra Sport Life app and the heart rate monitor to gauge your workout and give your real-time input on when to speed up and when to slow down.
Jabra Elite Sport will start retailing on 30 October for a modest $250 price tag. If you are more than eager for the earbuds, you can pre-order them now.
