A portable, easy to use and fitness-oriented headset

The Jabra Sport Coach is a bit of a mixed bag, because it does certain things well and other things poorly. Aesthetics and comfort are inadequate in some ways, as are NFC, Bluetooth pairing, and the quality of the companion app that processes the data from the fitness monitor and provides in-ear coaching. However, when it comes to sound, the Sport Coach is excellent, thanks to the Dolby tuning. It provides a fairly neutral sound that can be tweaked to your needs through simple equaliser settings, and is filled with detail, excitement, rhythm and drive.

Perfect for both indoor and outdoor workouts

If you’re looking for a pair of wireless earbuds to mainly use for listening to music, I’d skip the Jabra Sport Coach earbuds unless you also need sweat, dirt and dust protection. If you’re looking for some extra motivation while working out along with music, the Jabra Sport Coach earbuds will give you that, but you’ll have to decide if you’re willing to spend $150 for that feature.

Pumps out music and motivation

The Jabra Sport Coach is essentially the same as its predecessor with a slightly different tack. The motion sensor arguably offers greater flexibility than the heart rate monitor of the Pulse, except Jabra has yet to fully utilize its capabilities. That doesn’t mean it can’t or won’t, only...More

The Jabra Sport Coach is essentially the same as its predecessor with a slightly different tack. The motion sensor arguably offers greater flexibility than the heart rate monitor of the Pulse, except Jabra has yet to fully utilize its capabilities. That doesn’t mean it can’t or won’t, only that it didn’t do more than it should’ve out of the box.

It does have a hefty price tag, but it is definitely worth it

from Technology X

The quality of the audio is solid, providing a strong mid range with a moderate high range and decent bass. While we can’t say that the audio quality is the best part of these earbuds, we can say that we are not disappointed with it. What really blew us away was the comfort of these earbuds...More

The quality of the audio is solid, providing a strong mid range with a moderate high range and decent bass. While we can’t say that the audio quality is the best part of these earbuds, we can say that we are not disappointed with it. What really blew us away was the comfort of these earbuds. We have tested and worn various earbuds/earphones in the past and none of them has been as comfortable as these. We kept the stock earbuds on the Jabra Sport Coach and they felt like they were a perfect form to the ear. This could also partly do to the minimal weight of the earbuds, but the shape and design is spectacular.

Deliver strong Bluetooth audio and some added fitness app functionality

The $149.99 Sport Coach earphones work with an app that motivates you and keeps track of your workouts—it even charts your runs on maps using GPS.

The $149.99 Sport Coach earphones work with an app that motivates you and keeps track of your workouts—it even charts your runs on maps using GPS. It's a simple level of integration, but one that can eliminate the need for added exercise accessories. The audio can almost be viewed as secondary here, but the sweat- and weather-resistant earphones also deliver distortion-free, fairly balanced audio with strong (if not throttling) bass response and clear (if not exceptionally crisp) highs.

Expert Reviews

A great motivator

from Expert Reviews

The main benefit is coming from the revamped Jabra Sport Life app that’s providing the coaching but even that feels like that has a lot of missed opportunities. The headphones themselves are incredibly comfortable, however, and I do find myself wishing they lasted longer.

Those who want exercise-ready wireless earbuds need look no further than the Jabra Sport Coach. These buds provide solid audio quality perfect for in-the-gym and on-the-go listening, and they make it easy to spice up your exercise routine.

Anyone who's looking for new workouts will love the guided routines of the Jabra Sport app, and how easy it is to follow them simply by listening. Ideally, I would like a little more battery life, but the $149 Jabra Sport Coach headphones are still the most exciting and satisfying sport earbuds I've tried.

The Jabra Sport Coach is a refreshing take on wireless headphones and its array of guided workouts are some of the best we've seen. However, the limited integration between the app workouts and the headphones means that you don't really need to fork out for the hardware to take advantage – and there are better wireless headphones on the market with longer battery life.

If a comfortable pair of Bluetooth headphones is primarily what you're after, then these Jabra earbuds will deliver. Their sound output is enjoyable, the fit doesn't irritate, and the controls and app are simple. Those of you after some in-ear updates on the performance of your walks and runs, should find them to be up to the task, and the addition of preset cross-fit workouts means you can get some guidance on incorporating different exercises into your routine, especially if you don't already have a set workout plan.
