Jabra Unveils Special Editions Of Its Wireless Sports Headphones
Jabra extends its range of wireless sports headphones and continues to innovate in the sports audio sector with the launch of two new Special Editions. Just like the existing line-up of Jabra sports headphones (Jabra Sport Pulse, Jabra Sport Coach and Jabra Sport Pace), the new editions offer quality calls, music for motivation and intelligent in-ear coaching to help enhance your training effectiveness, whether you're an experienced runner or just getting active. In addition, these next generation versions deliver innovation in all areas, with passive noise cancellation, a broader choice of fitting options, improved durability and world-first intelligent sports features for fitness enthusiasts of all standards.
Jabra Sport Pulse Special Edition
World's First Smart Sports Features
Jabra Sport Pulse, launched in September 2014, brought in-ear biometric heart rate monitoring to sports headphones for the first time. Two years later, the Jabra Sport Pulse Special Edition takes another innovative step by using the in-ear heart rate monitor (together with the Jabra Sports Life app) to constantly calculate your VO2 Max level – a globally recognized and established test of aerobic fitness – and automatically measure your fitness level.
Whether a seasoned athlete or just trying to get fitter, the personalized VO2 Max data generated by the Jabra Sport Pulse Special Edition allows you to track your fitness development and get the most out of your workout. It uses intelligent in-ear coaching to provide real-time feedback based on your heart rate and fitness level. When you've finished your run, the Jabra Sport Life app provides a range of information to help you improve your fitness level in the future, including distance covered, pace, route, calories burnt and training effect.
The Jabra Sport Coach Special Edition are the world's first sports headphones to feature automatic repetition counting through the TrackFit motion sensor. With in-ear coaching, they give you the freedom to plan, track and concentrate on your workout.
Developed to help you make the most of your time at the gym, the Jabra Sport Coach Special Edition works in combination with the Jabra Sport Life app. The TrackFit motion sensor detects your movement and the app counts and logs your repetitions, and advises when to move on to the next exercise. From launch, the app will be able to automatically count ten of the most commonly performed exercises, including push-ups, lunges and burpees, with updates to the app increasing the number of new exercises available over time.
Enhanced Sound And Additional Fitting Options
No matter what conditions you train in, or how hard you train, both new Special Editions work just as hard. In addition to a choice of different sized ear gels and ear wings, the headphones now come with COMPLY Foam Tips as standard, keeping the earbuds securely locked in-place throughout your workout. They also provide improved sound-quality for calls and music, with passive noise cancellation and enhanced bass.
Just like the existing line-up of Jabra sports headphones (Jabra Sport Pulse, Jabra Sport Coach and Jabra Sport Pace), the new editions offer quality calls, music for motivation and intelligent in-ear coaching to help enhance your training effectiveness, whether you're an experienced runner or just getting active.
Both Jabra Sport Pulse and Jabra Sport Coach Special Editions offer certified dust and water resistance (to IP55 standard) and are tested to US military standards against wind, rain, sweat and shock impact. Reinforced by a three-year extended warranty against sweat*, you can be confident that both sets of headphones will perform, no matter how challenging your workout.
Extending The Sports Audio Range
Together with the existing Jabra Sport Pulse and Jabra Sport Coach, and the recently launched Jabra Sport Pace, the Special Editions reinforce the position of Jabra as a leading expert in intelligent sound solutions, particularly for those with an active lifestyle. As part of the GN group, pioneers in sound from sports headphones to hearing aids, Jabra continues to offer superior sound engineering and unrivalled expertise.
René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra says: "We have made great strides with our sports headphones over the last two years. And from a strong start I'm really excited that Jabra can now deliver next generation sports headphones with better sound, more options for a perfect fit and a host of world-first sports features. Jabra Sport Coach and Pulse Special Editions are evidence of our commitment to lead in the field of intelligent sound solutions."
