What customers say about "Key Specs"
Jabra Elite Sport
  • The sound quality is good and when tested for phone calls I was told they could hear me clearly though I did have to speak louder than normal. I am soft spoken though.
  • Definitely within the top tier of true wireless Bluetooth earbuds. I've tried many of them, and this is arguably the best on the market right now. Strong, tight bass, solid mids, and good highs that are not peaky (especially when you need to turn it up for the gym).
  • Excellent sound quality. The app could use some better features, such as better tracking for weight lifting or more exercises in general. They rarely lose track of my heartbeat, and are very secure in my ears.
  • Much better sound than other bluetooth in-ear headphones I tried, the connection is pretty solid too, no dropouts. The fit is not the most comfortable but it's ok and they do not fall out.
  • When I received the Jabra earphones, I set my expectations low and expected to return them. I was very pleasantly surprised at the quality of these earphones. Their sound was excellent.
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White
  • I like the sound and lack of wires. These were never proposed to be noise cancelling so the ability to hear surrounding noise keeps me aware of rooms where I should be listening but want to hear the music or in a store.
  • These headphones sound better than the headphones bundled with the iPhone. Great quality and easy set up with all Apple devices.
  • The sound quality of the AirPods is incredible. Battery life is great too.
  • The sound is good. The pods feel like they might come out during exercise, but they don't. They let in a lot of background noise but that's good if you are walking in the city.
  • This is the best cordless headphone, sound outstanding nice and clearly between high and low frequency is great. I recommend to get this headphone sound better then the one with the cord.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Jabra Elite Sport
  • Great light-weight wireless earbuds. Stay in place for all kinds of exercise and have a built in heart-rate monitor.
  • Weight and comfort for long day wear, exceptional. Sweat and water, probably better than their rated for.
  • The convenience is awesome. No cords to get caught on weights or machines.
  • It is very comfort to wear it for over 3 hrs and you will not notice due to the light weight.
  • Do not just place them anywhere, they are very small and easily lost. I got my left earbud run over by cars within two weeks :-(
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White

What customers say about "Features"
Jabra Elite Sport
  • Finally, this is the one. I had forgone all my wireless audio experiences until today. The Jabra Elite is definitely the one I have been waiting for. Fit's good, Looks good, and sounds good.
  • The product is really nicely designed, with some great features. I liked the different ear foams for the ear. It really fits nicely on in my ears, and had no discomfort at all. Sound quality was also very good.
  • Lots of size options for not only the ear bud pad but also the outer ear rubber lips.
  • Rock solid connection, not just in distance, but with the other earbud. Quite impressive, since all of the others I've tried have had drop outs to varying degrees.
  • I couldn't get a good fit, so sound was not great. When using the Elite Sport for software phone on my computer, other people reported that my voice cut out a lot. I really like the idea of this technology, but it didn't work for me. I sent it back.
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White
  • Has great sound and best feature is battery life. Small,sleek and great fit.
  • If you are looking for a bluetooth headset... I would say these are about the best I have used. They pair easily and even on devices that are not apple, and apple devices that are not all on the same iCloud account on them.
  • When I bought this I did so after talking to several people about the Bluetooth, but being a truck driver I haven’t found a great Bluetooth that can be heard over the engine, until now.
  • These have been the best Bluetooth head phones I've owned. They sync up so easily.
  • I hated rating the AirPods 3*, because the sound quality is on par with the best. But, like all apple ear buds, they fit horribly, and fall out any time I do any physical activity or exercise.
Battery Type
What customers say about "Power"
Jabra Elite Sport
  • Battery life is great for my morning/afternoon commute and some listening while at work. Haven't had any issues with the earbuds' or case's batteries dying while I was using them.
  • Battery life is amazing I never run out. I used to run through bluetooths for calls or music. this thing does both magically
  • Fits very securely and the battery always lasts signifcantly longer than the stated 3 hours even at high volumes and while using the fitness tracking features.
  • Sound quality is ok at best. Neither battery lived up to their claim of 3 hours (headphones) & an additional 6 hours (charging case) as advertised.
  • Neither battery lived up to their claim of 3 hours (headphones) & an additional 6 hours (charging case) as advertised.
Apple Airpods (curr) Wireless Bluetooth Headset for iPhones with iOS 10 or Later White
  • These Bluetooth headphones are great for many reasons one main reason is the battery life
  • Battery life is awesome. The case lasts for about 3 days and the AirPods last for like 3 hours with only 15 minutes of being in the case after they are dead. I love them
  • They offer great sound quality and battery life, they stay in the ear quite well and the storage and charging case is a nice item to round out the package.
  • Battery dies quickly. Use one AirPod at a time to prolong battery life.
  • Love how they fit in my ears but the battery life is very low. I'm not on the phone much at all but by 3 pm they are dead.
