Jabra ROX review

Happy 60th post!

Honestly I don’t put too much thought into my headphones. My only two requirements is that 1) it drowns out noise (blame NYC) 2) they stay in my ears.

That being said, I’ve definitely had terrible experiences with cheap Duane Reade headphones. Currently I use my Apple headphones for my iPhone and for running.

Enter – Jabra ROX earbuds.

My first thought was “wireless”? Now how does that work?

At first I loved the sound of these headphones, I mean I still do. My boyfriend also agreed that the sound is spectacular.

That being said, just like another BibRave Pro, Angie, I wasn’t completely sold for the first run. It did take some time for me to fall in love with these.  I did a few runs in them and finally figured out which “wings” and buds fit for my ears.  
Another interesting point about these are that they sorta feel like suction cups in your ears which is odd. These work on Bluetooth and are really easy to set up. I had no problems with the connection or the music on my runs and I do love that these really do drown out the sound (not always safe for running but I love it). 
The headphones come with all of the above, a protective bag for the headphones and a charger for the headphones. Remember these are wireless headphones, needs to run on something!
A few more details from their website
  • Talk Time: Up to 5.5 hours
    Talk Time is the maximum time you can talk before a device runs out of power
  • Standby Time: Up to 432 hours
    Standby Time is the maximum time a device can remain powered on
  • Music Play Time: 6 hour

Because I’ve been slacking on marathon training and long runs (thanks law school), I haven’t fully been able to test these on long runs (longer than 5 miles).  All the runs I’ve done in these have been less than 5 miles. 
Have you tried wireless headphones? What do you think?
