Going Wireless: Jabra Rox Review
Confession: I can't run or workout without my music. It helps me to get in the groove and push through when the going gets tough. My biggest issue has been finding headphones that stay in, or what do with with all the excess cord. So the most logical move: wireless headphones!
I currently have been using Yurbuds. Great headphones, don't get me wrong, but they don't "lock" in as great as I would like, but they are sufficient. But they still have a long awkward cord. So wireless seemed to be the best option.
Thanks to my ambassadorship with BibRave.com, I got the hook up with Jabra Rox headphones and was so excited to try them out!
Jabra Rox work via bluetooth with your smartphone. It was super simple to set up. There's even voice activated instructions to help you with setup (besides the written instructions). And I have an iPhone 4s, so you don't have to have the most up to date smartphone for them to work.
I found working out with the wireless was so awesome! Didn't have to worry about shoving excess cord into my armband. And the toggle switch made skipping tunes super easy. Also, you do have to charge them but that too is simple. You plug the usb cable into your computer and connect the headphones via behind the left bud.
Now, here comes the sticker shock. They run $129.99. Pricey I know, but I spend that much on a good pair of running shoes so why not for a good pair of headphones? Jabra does have a few other options though.
|These run $99.99. A little different style though.|
|These run $199.99. But have an integrated heart rate monitor. So it's a 2-in-1 deal.|
So here's the breakdown.
--Easy to use
--No tangled/excess cords
--Toggle switch for volume/scrolling
--Easy to charge.
--Multiple accessories to find the perfect fit.
--A little pricey.
--Bluetooth can run down battery power on phone (just prob wouldn't use for a 3hr+ run)
All in all I do love the Jabra Rox headphones. And love going wireless! I highly recommend them. Go check 'em out! http://www.jabra.com
