Departing from conventionally styled earphones, it looks like a tangled mess of stale wires. But once you slip it on over the first ear, and prep the earphone inside of your lobe, it nestles comfortably, even when at pace.
Thanks to the design, the Sport isn't foiled by intense exercise, staying in place and doing what any good exercise headset should do: be invisible.

Recognising this headset is rain, dust and shock resistant, the Sport needed to be tested by the environment. There's an 8km stretch of ocean-forged rocks by Forrester's beach in the central cost. Water sprays down from nearby crashing waves, and headsets constantly jolt up and down as the rock-track rapidly climbs and descends.
The trek is always interrupted by my headphones popping out one stage or another, but the Sport didn't disappoint in this area. It was incredibly comfortable, light and produced an uninterrupted atmosphere that really motivated me to get on with the workout.
When you first unpack the sports, there's a yellow tag that instructs you to wear your music device (in this case, mobile) on your arm using the included armband. Like most things health and safety, it was quickly dismissed, opting to use my pocket instead.
But it turns out Jabra are concerned about Bluetooth performance, with audio intermittently dropping out every now and then if the Bluetooth device isn't close enough to the headset, and that's disappointing. The purpose of a Bluetooth headset is to evade restricting wires. There's little point in evading wires if you're bound by an arm band.
