Jabra made a big show of introducing their Sport Bluetooth music/phone earbuds at CES this year, even bringing in triathlete celeb and Ironman champ Craig Alexander to flaunt the buds while he sweat away the miles on a stationary bike. Unfortunately, the Sport has been plagued by reports of abysmal Bluetooth connectivity (possibly due to range) and poor fit ever since it shipped.
Jabra’s response is their new Sport Wireless+, the successor to the Sport, which Jabra says has made everything better.
Specifically, Jabra says they’ve improved the connectivity, enhanced the fit by adding eargel and boosted battery longevity. There’s also a new clip that keeps the cord from resting on the back of the neck, another issue users complained about.
To sweeten the pot, Jabra has also included a three-month premium subscription to fitness site Edmondo.
The Sport Wireless+ is available now for $99 (unchanged from the original Sport), from Amazon or Verizon.
