Today Jabra launched its new rain-proof, dust-proof and shock-resistant sports Bluetooth headset.
The Jabra Sport is the company's smallest surround sound stereo headset to date and relies on its ergonomic design for a cosy fit that won't be foiled by intense exercise.

In the box, the Sport comes with 3 soft silicone ear-gel moulds for a personalised fit and benefits from wire-free Bluetooth so exercise enthusiasts can benefit from exerting motion and motivating music.
The headset features in built controls that manage music, phone calls and exercising.
Karen Powell, Regional Sales Manager for Jabra Australia and New Zealand said, "Jabra's research has shown that 75 per cent of people claim the greatest drawback of traditional headsets to be the fact that they fall out of their ears when they're on the move. When you combine this with the fact that adding music to your high-intensity workout can increase your endurance by about 15 per cent, the Jabra SPORT is an ideal solution for those who crave a headset that is more robust and rugged than the norm."
Jabra's new headset also comes with a sporting companion, the Endomondo Sports Tracker application. Tapping the Jabra's dedicated exercise button will provide users with a summary of their performance, reading out speed, distance and duration.
"Jabra has designed the SPORT specifically with active users in mind, providing all the ergonomic benefits as well as superior stereo surround sound for music and phone calls. Now we're moving into Spring, it's the time when many Australians will ramp-up their exercise regime and be seeking motivational tools which can keep up. The Jabra SPORT is the perfect partner," added Powell.
Without compromising quality, the Sport is military-grade certified to handle rain, dust and shock-resistant and features a wind-shielding microphone to maintain voice clarity during phone calls.
The Jabra Sport is available soon from Dick smith, Harvey Norman and Telstra with a RRP of $149.99.
