    Jabra joins the fully wireless earbud game

    Jabra’s still probably best known for its headsets/teleconferencing devices, but the company’s been making a fairly aggressive push into consumer headphones of late. Of particular interest is the fitness space, leveraging its Bluetooth expertise into rugged, fitness-friendly earbuds. You probably could have seen this next step coming: going fully wireless. The Elite Sport carries… Read More

  • Jabra upgrades its Sport wireless headphones with new fitness features

    Jabra upgrades its Sport wireless headphones with new fitness features

    Just in time (fingers sweatily crossed) for it to start being a little less excruciatingly hot outside, Jabra will be offering up refreshes to its line of fitness-tracking wireless headphones. The higher-end Sport Pulse bring VO2 Max tracking to the proceedings. What, you ask, is VO2 Max tracking? Don’t feel bad, I wasn’t 100-percent sure, either, but the technology has been offered… Read More

  • Jabra is all talk with its Halo Smart Bluetooth earbuds

    Jabra is all talk with its Halo Smart Bluetooth earbuds

    At $80, the Jabra Halo Smart is in a bit of a gray area. It’s hardly what the majority of users would call “cheap,” but it still comes in well below other wireless offerings from companies like Jaybird. They’re not fitness buds, nor are they focused on sound or comfort. Jabra, much to its credit, went a different route entirely, eschewing the focuses of most… Read More

  • Jabra goes behind-the-neck with the Halo Smart Bluetooth headphones

    Jabra goes behind-the-neck with the Halo Smart Bluetooth headphones

    Jabra’s been making moves over the past several years in an attempt to shake up its image as solely an office headset manufacturer. Of course, the Copenhagen-based technology company is still very much in the business of producing devices for call centers and the like, but these days it seems to prefer leading with products like the Wireless Sports Earbuds. The new Jabra Halo… Read More

  • Jabra Solemate Max Review: The Sneaker Speaker Balloons To Basketball Player Proportions

    Jabra Solemate Max Review: The Sneaker Speaker Balloons To Basketball Player Proportions

    Jabra, like Jawbone, used to make Bluetooth headsets back when those were all the rage. Their popularity never extended beyond the ranks of particularly annoying real estate agents and I guess “rainmakers” in various fields, however, and so Jawbone, and later Jabra, turned their Bluetooth expertise to another task: making speakers. Jabra’s Solemate line now has an entry in… Read More

  • Gift Guide: Jabra Solemate

    Gift Guide: Jabra Solemate

    I use the Solemate. That’s the highest recommendation that I can give a product. I use the Solemate around my house. The sound easily fills rooms. I travel with the Solemate to compensate for hotel’s lowly clock radios. With Bluetooth and clever storage for a 3.5mm cable, it always ready for an impromptu party. Plus, it charges from microUSB. This is the best portable speaker for… Read More

  • Jabra Wave Coming Exclusively To Verizon Stores

    Bluetooth headsets are the gel shoe inserts of the mobile world. You rarely think of them but when you find a good one you’re in heaven. The Jabra Wave, coming this week, looks to be one of the good ones. Read More

  • Review: Plantronics Voyager PRO UC Bluetooth headset


    There’s a small market for Bluetooth headsets that come with auto-pairing dongles. Some peeps need a quick and reliable way to use software like Microsoft Office Communicator and Skype and so I tested out the Jabra GO 6430 a few weeks back. While I found the audio superb, it didn’t fit right in my ear. Plantronics heard my cry and sent me the Voyager PRO UC. This boy is comfy. Read More

  • Jabra announces white version of their Stone headset

    When Jabra announced the Stone headset last year (and tormented Matt), we really liked it. John dug the design, and Jabra’s headset’s never lack in the quality department. What they were lacking was color. Well good news, if you’ve been holding out because you wanted a headset that matched your earbuds, Jabra is ready to help you out. Read More

  • Review: Jabra GO 6430 Bluetooth headset

    The Jabra GO 6430 headset has the best audio clarity I’ve ever heard from a Bluetooth headset. It’s unmatched. It’s too bad that my ear and the headset don’t get along. Read More

  • The Jabra Clipper gives the gift of Bluetooth to any 3.5mm headset

    Jabra wasn’t going to be left out of the MWC fun and so the Clipper was announced. The little Bluetooth device features a novel clip for securing to an article of clothing and a 3.5mm jack for your favorite earphones. Bluetooth 2.1 A2DP, EDR, and AVRCP technology gives the clipper everything it needs including the ability to automagically pause media playback when a phone call comes in. Read More

  • Jabra launches two new bluetooth devices at CES

    Good news for Jabra fans; they just announced two new Bluetooth devices at CES. For the traditional headset wearer we’ve got the Jabra Extreme, and for the speakerphone fan we’ve got the Cruiser Bluetooth speakerphone. Both devices use Jabra’s new Noise Blackout technology, to cut down on the background noise issues. Read More

  • An interview with Johan Birger, part of the Jabra Stone design team


    It’s not every day I get excited about a Bluetooth headset but the Jabra Stone is an exception. The headset, in short, looks like a smooth stone. The earpiece fits into a small, portable charging unit and almost disappears in your pocket. The electronics inside are amazingly small and include dual microphones to reduce wind and traffice noises. In order to get to the bottom of this… Read More

  • Review: Jabra Halo Bluetooth stereo headphones

    I love wireless technology and will write-off a lot of its downfalls for the advantages. For instance, it doesn’t bother me that the audio quality of the Jabra Halo is sub-par, because they are wireless and very comfortable. Plus, I can deal with a lot of connection issues if I can eventually get it to connect, but the Jabra Halo headset failed me one too many times. Read More

  • Jabra, you got me good with the Stone headset teaser pack

    So I got home a few minutes ago, grabbed the mail and sat down to watch Michigan sneak a win over Indiana. I noticed a small, black package in the mail, but I didn’t care about it until I was sure that Michigan was going to hold off Indiana. After all, I thought, it was probably just another flash drive with some random press release on it. After Michigan intercepted the ball – and… Read More
