Fitness junkies, there’s a new pair of wireless earphones just for you


If you’re a fitness junkie and a bit of an audiophile, you want to take a look at this — the Jabra Sport Rox Wireless.

Developed from the same base as the Jabra Rox — one of the best and reasonably priced wireless earphones you get right now — the new Sport Rox Wireless packs all the features you’ll ever need in a sports-oriented wireless earphone and more. You get Dolby Digital Plus sound, NFC, automatic on and off via magnetic earphones, larger sound drivers for impressive sound and bass, and about 5 hours of music playtime (the device requires 2 hours to charge from empty to full).

Just the like the Rox, the Sport Rox Wireless is built tough with metal earphones and Kevlar reinforced cables. In addition to that, the Sport Rox brings IP54 ingress protection rating so you can use the them in your next run whether its rain or shine.

To make sure the earphones don’t fall off while you’re completing your 10km run, the Sport Rox comes with a selection of Jabra’s EarGels earbuds and EarWings that lets you lock the earbuds in place so you can confidently focus on your workout. And naturally, you can take calls with the Sport Rox thanks to the built-in noise cancelling microphone.

Jabra say the Sport Rox Wireless is the best premium wireless headphones you can get, if the performance of the Rox is anything to go by, the Sport Rox might just be the standard by which all other sports-oriented earphones are measured.

The Jabra Rox Wireless will be available at the following stores now for RM469.
