Fitness monitoring through headphones and an app

In addition to the options for suppressing ambient noise, for playing back audio and for making phone calls, these sports headphones live up to their name thanks to their diverse sensors. Among other things, namely the user's pulse measuredso that the training can be better evaluated and the app can indicate upcoming breaks. Also comes a biometric motion sensor for use, which among other things helps to record and count individual training units. So there is a lot of technology in the little plugs and, coupled with the app, they are extensive training aids.

Conclusion on the new Jabra sports headphones with fitness support

An all-encompassing and equivalent alternative to the Apple AirPods is not offered here either; for athletes, however, it is the ideal offer, I would think. These headphones sit securely, offer good performance, many useful features such as noise cancellation and a decent data sheet. If you want to compare the Jabra models with cheaper, but less extensively usable headphones, then you will find it here another article about the Syllable D900 MINI headphones.
