It seems to me that the quality of the battery is poor and causing the problems. Maybe the battery in the Jabra Sport Pulse device cannot handle all types of adapters. But the user manual does not say anything about which adaptors that are useable. And it shouldn't be my job to test which adaptors to use.
After having spend a lot of time on three Jabra sport pulse devices I have lost my passion and I'm now using my old corded headset. Very disappointing since the Jabra Sport Pulse headset was excellent when working properly...
1.The most comfortable sports Bluetooth earbuds after tried Jarv NMotion, Plantronics BackBeat GO 2, Jabra SPORT+ and JayBird BlueBuds X Sport (I also tried Powerbeats2 last month, returned on 2nd day because I had trouble pairing it with my Galaxy S4, and music cuts about every 10 - 15 seconds) . It comes with 3 sets of ear wings (L/M/S) and 4 sets of buds (L/M/S/XS). Once you find the best combination. It just feels so comfortable in your ears. It also come with a carrying case which protects the earbuds very well.
2. Durable and innovative design. Plus, it has a heart rate monitor! The heat rate monitor works with apple health right away. It is also quite accurate. I compared it with Garmin Vivofit heart rate chest band and Samsung Gear fit. The readings are only off by 1 or 2. Now for Sport Pulse, you don't notice anything different while wearing it. But chest band, for me, is a bit uncomfortable to wear during work out. And, Samsung's heart rate sensor requires user to stay steady and its accuracy and sensibility disappear if there is sweat between the watch and you wrist. So, I would say this is the best sports gear with heart rate monitor in the market now.
3. Impressive software. I had it run on both Android 4.4.2 (on At&t Samsung Galaxy S4) and iOS 8.1 (on ipod touch 5th gen). I did not have any crash at all. The distance readings were identical to my fitbit flex readings while working out with both devices at same time.
Cons: I had to put this negative testimony here because it dead on me on the 44th day (got it on Oct. 3rd, working properly till Nov. 14). I tried to stop my music and turn it off after my routine gym work out. None of the bottoms were working. After a few times trying to turn it off by long holding the power bottom, it was finally off. However, when I turned it back on, the led stayed at purple and it just stopped working (Led should flash green when turns on, red when off, and purple after firmware update). Unfortunately, I was not able to find any possible reason and solution on Google. And I have passed the 30 day return period from Amazon. My only hope is Jabra support team would respond to my email asap (I have seen a few reviewer claims that they did not get feedback).
Other thoughts: again this was the best sport bluetooth earbuds in the market. I go to gym twice a day, average 2 hrs. Regular running distance was 2 miles at 9 mph. As a heavy sweater, I was very happy and satisfied that it could stay in my ear all the time without any adjustment and never fall off.
If it is not dead, it is absolutely a FIVE star product.
I'll keep this updated once I have response from Jabra support team. Please also feel free to ask questions.
Update 11/21/2014: Jabra support team responded to my claim with 3 business days. The communication went back and forth, they insisted it was just software malfunction and wanted me to reinstall the new 3.8.0 firmware and factory reset the earbuds. I did reinstallment 4 times and reset several times, but the bottons were still not working except power on and off, and the battery started malfunctioning which was not able hold any charge. Then I sent them a video showing how mine was not working. They finally allowed me to return it, and hopefully I'll get the replacement after Thanksgiving. I will keep y'all posted.
Below is an important fact I found out, please make sure read this and see my pics:
I was one of owners who bought the earbuds right after it came available on Amazon, and I have seen many of the early birds had some similar problem as I had. So I started thinking this might be the first batch Amazon had in stock was not good. Then I pick up one in Bestbuy after I put mine in the mail. The new set I have is working perfectly even with the old 3.5.0 firmware (3.8.0 was released in mid October), and I also noticed that this one is different than the Amazon version. Physically, I don't see any difference. But the accessories and the packaging are totally different. In my picture, the left one is the Bestbuy version and the right one is the Amazon version. You'll see that the Bestbuy one comes with 4 sets of earwings and on the back it says "Powered by PerformTek". In contrast, the Amazon version comes with only 3 earwings and you'll the coloring on the packing for the earwings is different. On the back, the Amazon version does not have "PerformTeck" Logo, but has "DOLBY" and a tiny sticker says "Onlu on Bluetooth smart ready devices. The inside of the packaging is identical except a bit coloring difference. Another difference is on the Barcode the Bestbuy version has "41/M" on the upper left corner and the Amazon one has "37/M", sorry, I did take pic for this since I don't not want to show my S/N, but I am guessing this might be the batch number, so the Bestbuy one is a later manufactured version.
Anyway, if you have the earlier version and already have some malfunctions, I would strongly suggest you to return it and get the newer version.
I hope my review would help you make decision before Black Friday shopping. Again, feel free to ask questions.
Update 11/26/2014: Finally updated video of the malfunction, and pictures comparing Amazon and Bestbuy version.
I really dislike leaving anything less than a very positive review. I'm a tech entrepreneur, and I know the pain that the team behind this project feels when things go wrong. With that said, it's at the same time very useful to hear what users think - so this review is for Jabra as much as it is for interested consumers.
Let me start by mentioning the most critical issue: I've had the headphones for less than 2 weeks, and they no longer retain a charge. I've had them plugged in for multiple days on different cables, and the charging light never changes to green. I can't turn the unit on, either. Obviously, I will be sending these back.
Will I be getting another pair? Most likely not - largely because at $200, they don't provide the value I was hoping for, and they most certainly should not have stopped working after a couple weeks. Also, not to sound like a jerk, but I'm extremely busy and don't like the inconvenience of having to file for a return, repackage, send these back and order a new pair, all for the hopes that unit #2 will work.
I'm a very active athletic user, and purchased these for the sake of 5x weekly gym visits and 4x weekly runs. I was interested in the possibility of having my heart rate tracked while running, and had already given up on the cumbersome & messy heart rate straps.
The headphones fit relatively well out of the box, and are more comfortable than the BlueBuds X. However, I'm not a fan of the gels and would prefer a foam (e.g., Monster Turbine's SuperTips), because I found myself having trouble maintaining an ideal fit. Sometimes I'd put them too deep in and lose all bass. So, I'd adjust them and they'd sound better with a seal, but after 5 minutes of running they'd come loose and I'd have to readjust.
The sound is OK. It's not nearly as good as wired, but I guess that's to be expected with Bluetooth. I tried turning the bass up a little in my Spotify app, and anything more than a slight increase produced choppy bass - the headphones couldn't handle it. I also have the Beats PowerBeats2, and the bass and fidelity is far better. The problem with the beats is that they don't allow for a seal.
I'm not a fan of how the controller's firmware is coded - it doesn't follow convention, which is a 101 mistake in my opinion. For example, skipping a song on iPhone headphones requires a double tap of the pause button; going back a song requires a triple tap. On these, a double tap results in a phone call redial. Really? I know this is Jabra, but how often are people making phone calls nowadays, not to mention, redialing? We're not on Cellular 1 anymore - calls don't drop THAT often! Not to mention, the athlete who got these headphones primarily for the purpose of athletic training won't be making calls, and wouldn't mind looking at their phones the few times that they need to make a call.
Also, the controller is on the right earbud, which took some getting used to, since most headphones have it on the left.
As another reviewer mentioned, a double tap on the left earbud is supposed to announce your athletic stats, but I couldn't get that to work.
I find that the fitness app does not work well. Nor is it powerful enough for a power user, which I presume most users will be if they care to track their heart rates. I could go into detail on all of the fundamental usability issues (Jabra, feel free to contact me, as I'm very experienced with fitness app development), but I think that's beyond the point: I'm sure some would disagree with me on this, but I think a headphone company should focus on what they do best - building quality headphones. The budget that was devoted towards the app should have gone into product refinements, or a lower price point. There are plenty of incredible fitness apps out there that specialize in just that - fitness apps. Jabra will never be able to compete with those apps, so why try? Instead, devote a modest budget to ensuring compatibility with & user awareness of the best fitness apps, and possibly even derive revenue from these partnerships on a referral basis. Or, provide 1+ year premium subscriptions to 3rd party apps. A win-win for everyone.
I also had a lot of trouble getting the heart rate Bluetooth to connect. The headphones worked immediately, but every time I tapped to connect the second Bluetooth device (the monitor), it would time out. On my second day of trying multiple times, it finally worked. I realize that this may also be an Apple issue, so I can't confidently place blame on either party (iPhone 6, most recent iOS update installed).
I'm not a fan of the charging port being beneath the removable rubber wing tips. I suspect that my unit is no longer charging because of sweat that may have snuck into the port, but I can't say for sure - it's the only explanation I can think of for the unit not working in such little time.
With all of that said, here is WHAT I LIKED:
*The heart rate monitor is a huge plus.
*I was happy to find that the heart rate tracking worked on RunKeeper.
*As I mentioned earlier, they are much more comfortable than the BlueBuds X.
*Sound is pretty good. As I mentioned before, the PowerBeats2's sound far better, but don't maintain a seal like the Jabras. I wish the Beats did, as that makes a huge difference to me. The Beats are also a little too bulky for my liking. The Jabra's have a far better form factor.
*Microphone quality is better than any of the Bluetooth units I've used (I'd hope so, from Jabra! :) but living in Manhattan, I find I always need to use my iPhone instead of a headset, because of background noise. If you're indoors or live in a quiet setting, the mic should be more than adequate.
Jabra clearly worked very hard on these headphones, and did a fairly good job. I would have given these...
*3 stars if they hadn't broken;
*4 stars if the earbuds sealed better (yes, I tried multiple sizes) and the bass was deeper, and;
*5 stars if the controller's firmware were programmed conventionally and Jabra focused more on 3rd party app compatibility than on using their own app (RunKeeper, MapMyRun/Ride, Nike+, etc.).
Assuming my defective unit is a fluke, they improve the firmware, improve or abandon the software, and can offer better eartips (e.g., foam), my review will progress to 4 or more stars.
