Yes, it’s running earphones day! Check out our previous post on running earphones with the Sennheiser CX680i.
If you are looking for a pair of running earphones, this could be your best bet. The Jabra Sport bluetooth stereo headset is a pair of earphones for running and other sweaty sports that comes with ‘Military Grade’ rain, dust and shock protection (whatever that is).
Still, it’s great to see a bluetooth headset that aims to offer high-quality stereo, virtual surround sound audio, while also providing a mic with wind protection to take phone calls. It also includes a built-in FM Radio. This thing packs a punch.
It’s also meant to stay in your ears while exercising – how vigorously, we don’t know yet.
If you primarily use your earphones for running, then you’ll be happy to hear that it comes with a free download of the Endomondo Sports Tracker, “A fitness tracking application for smartphones that functions as a motivational tool for running, giving quick updates on speed, distance, and lap time.” The sports tracker works with your smartphone and keeps data on your past runs via GPS tracking, so you can do lots of analytics and data-slicing on your jog to the grocery store and back.
The bluetooth earpiece works with iPhone, Blackberry and Android devices.
