What experts say about Jabra Sport Coach - SE - with automatic rep counting
With a better fit and seal, the earbuds sound better. But going beyond that, according to Jabra they have added extra bass and improved the overall sound experience of the Special Editions. And I have to agree, the overall sound experience is better than the originals.I was surprised when the Jabra Sport app informed me I was in only AVERAGE shape for my age. This took me back a bit, I workout at least 5-6/wk and do my best to eat right, get a good nights sleep, not imbibe too much, etc. But this one moment was as if the Pulse Special Editions were throwing down the gauntlet and letting me know old age and slackness were winning. Since this wake up call, I have been running more and working on getting back into true shape.
Jabra's Sport Coach Special Edition headphones are aimed squarely at fitness fanatics. They even let you plan High-Intensity Internal Training (HIIT) routines and will count the number of repetitions of an exercise for you! They offer good sound quality, but the headphones do lack punch and clear low-end notes, so it's those that want the fitness features they will appeal to most. The built-in rep counter tracks how much of the exercise you have done and alerts you when it's time to move on, but you do need to make sure you perform the exercise in the starting position that is detailed on the app for the counter to work.
The Sport Coach fits quite comfortably and aren’t quite as finicky to deal with like the Beats Powerbeats2 but they will get in the way of certain exercises. They are one of the better sounding wireless headphones that we’ve used which is great and Jabra has built an interesting app to use with these bluetooth headphones. The only thing that was disappointing with the Jabra Sport Coach was our unmet expectations of the TrackFit Motion sensor.
