Ergonomics

The Jabra Sport Coachne is an “ear hook” that reminds us of the Beats PowerBeats 2 Wireless . This IP54 certified design seems very robust. They are resistant to sweat, shock, sand and dust, resistance perfectly confirmed in the field by our test. The absence of a hook to place in the ear offers a certain comfort and the support remains very good.

The cable between the two intras (40 cm) includes a hands-free kit / remote control that allows you to adjust the volume, take a call, turn on the power, give the battery level, play a song or skip to the next track. . There is also a clip to best adjust the length of the cable. We have noted that this cable is very insensitive to friction, impacts of steps on the ground, etc.

On the left atrium there is a final physical touch which activates the Sport Life application. Pressing for one second starts or pauses the training session. It can also be used to deactivate the audio indications by double tapping on it. 

Transmission takes place via Bluetooth (no NFC chip on board) which, weary thing, does not keep in memory the devices which have already been connected. An indicator light indicates the different phases of pairing with its terminal. 

Unlike the other products in the range, the Sport Pace in-ear headphones do not incorporate any activity sensor, an absence which seriously limits the Jabra Sport Life application . However, this application – free and available on iOS and Android – allows you to activate voice announcements in French indicating the pace, the distance traveled or the effort time (see below). After the effort, we can record our performance (distance traveled, time, average, maximum and minimum speed as well as the calories consumed). 

Audio

The Sport Pace undoubtedly sign a “V” sound. This equalization which usually highlights the bass and treble – the latter being here finally high mids – is often used because flattering to the ear. However, very present bass also allows to gain in insulation, which can be practical in outdoor use. This rendering in the bass remains too present, especially at high volume, causing them to lose precision. The bump between 2 and 5 kHz visible below highlights the high mids. 

When listening, this translates into a punchy and slightly more garish sound, with a well-focused accent on voices, guitars and cymbals. In return, we also have sibilants that go up a lot with “ts”, “pf”, “s” … very prominent; which is particularly tiring during a long listening session, especially for people sensitive to these frequencies. These effects are accentuated moreover when one pushes the volume a little. 

The stereophonic field is quite wide and makes it easy to identify the different elements present on the sound stage. The insulation is rather average and you will have to increase the sound if you want to listen in a gym, which can be harmful to the ear. Conversely, it is more reassuring if you want to use them in the city and thus hear the surrounding noises.

We can say that the distortion is almost absent from the spectrum – since the frequency response starts at 30 Hz -, in any case below the audible limit of 1%. Nothing to say about the power, the Jabra Sport Pace require only a small 128 mV to reach a level of 94 dB. They are therefore perfectly suited to mobile devices and will offer a very satisfactory listening volume.

CONCLUSION

The Jabra Sport Paces will easily support athletes in their activities thanks to their comfort, robustness and even the possibility of rinsing them after exercise. On the sound side, these intras give pride of place to the bass and voices but suffer from considerable sibilance at high volume. Not very insulating, they are thus rather reassuring for an urban use. At less than 100 €, they are a good option for lovers of sports.
