Focus on your training without distraction - knowing that Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds are built to take a beating.

Ergonomic Audio Response Science technology ensures a secure, comfortable fit that's lightweight and has a compact design to keep you focused on your training, bringing you one step closer to exceeding your training goals.

Track your workouts with medical accuracy

Jabra commissioned Campbell University in North Carolina, USA to independently verify the performance of the heart rate monitor technology for fitness and active usage. The comprehensive trial included athletes on a treadmill and simultaneously tested Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless against a medical electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. The results clearly showed an extraordinary accuracy with a 99.2% correlation, proving the advanced nature of the Jabra in-ear heart rate technology.

"Jabra has created a single device that can provide accurate biometric information, both visually and audibly, within a piece of equipment that most people who are exercising are wearing anyway -eliminating the need for excess equipment," says Jennifer Bunn, PhD, Assistant Professor and Director at Campbell University in the Department of Exercise Science.

Part of the Jabra Wireless Sporting Family

Sport Pulse Wireless earbuds maintain Jabra's tradition of world firsts, building on our solid heritage of superior sound engineering. They enhance our family of wireless audio solutions for people who are serious about sport, complementing the award-winning Jabra Sport Wireless+ earbuds.

Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless will be on sale in stores* from mid-November at a recommended retail price of R2 399.

"With a demanding South African fitness market, there is no doubt the need for a comprehensive training solution - one that encompasses all facets of understanding your training output - is growing. As a result, we have brought this world-first innovation in sports headset development to the local consumer and believe that it will see a strong uptake in the fitness market," concludes Bhogal.
