Jabra Sport Coach wireless earbuds

Jabra Sport Coach is the latest release following the PULSE. Like their predecessor, the sound quality is excellent. While there is no noise-cancellation technology, very little outside interference imposes on your listening experience. Using the Jabra Sport Life app, users can create their own workout and let real-time in-ear audio coaching take control. Designed specifically for cross training and HIIT, Jabra Sport Coach uses an integrated TrackFit™ motion sensor and premium Dolby sound to make every workout count. The only fault is the battery life, which falls well short of the advertised 5.5 hours of talk time and 10 days standby time.

Price: £119.99

Perfect for: The gym, jogging or any leisure activity.

The sweat-resistant Powerbeats2 Wireless from Beats By Dre offer a comfortable and secure fit that makes them perfect for your workouts at the gym. What’s more, the strong sound quality makes them a good option to use out and about as well, though bear in mind that they are deliberately designed to let in more outside noise than standard in-ear headphones. The battery life is excellent, providing six hours of playback from a single charge from the provided USB connector. The Powerbeats2, which connect to your device through Bluetooth at a 30-foot range, come in come in a host of different colours to suit your style. They also have an inline microphone so you can take phone calls.

Price: £169.95

Perfect for: The gym or jogging.

Urbanista Boston wireless earphones

Urbanista Boston wireless earphones review

The Urbanista Boston’s battery life disappointedPhoto: Urbanista

The new Urbanista Boston earphones are designed to give users that extra push during a workout, offering strong bass and impeccable clarity. However, they lack the sound qualify of the Jabra range. Wireless and with Bluetooth, sports fans won’t get tangled up in wires while on the go and its comfortable silicon wing on the earpiece provides a secure fit. In fact, despite being half the price of Jabra Sports Coach, the Urbanista Boston are far more comfortable and fashionable. A unique construction also makes them water resistant, so they’re great for using in the rain or when a workout gets sweaty! These wireless earphones do disappointing in terms of battery life. While the Jabra Coach gives fair warning that your battery is low, Urbanista Boston gives three prompt warnings before shutting down in a matter of seconds, which is frustrating.

Price: £59.99

Perfect for: The gym, jogging or any leisure activity.
