What We Liked
During testing, we noticed that the headphones work over a pretty long range so if you’re worried about damaging your phone in your pocket (while lifting weights for example), you can leave your phone in your bag on the other side of the room, and still listen to music! I was able to stream music to my Jabra headphones from the other side of the house when my phone was downstairs!
The Jabra Sport Pace Wireless Headphones connected to all devices in our home. While I was happy at how quickly they connected to my phone, my husband went a little crazy testing these headphones and tested them with every device in our house. I’m happy to report that the Jabra headphones connect well to our Moto X smart phone, Asus laptop, Mini Mac, Samsung Galaxy S3, iPhone 3, and hp Pavilion laptop.
The Jabra Pace headphones come with a fitness app (Jabra’s Sport Life), but also work with popular apps like MapMyFitness. I use the latter and was pleased to get my pace and distance updates while cross country skiing and listening to music.
Ease of Use
I was able to connect the headphones to my phone and use them without referring to the instructions. Once your headphones are charged via USB cable, put them on so you can hear the setup prompts, but don’t turn them on yet. Next, turn on Bluetooth capability on your phone, THEN turn on your headphones. Hold the multi-use button down for 5 seconds (until it is blue) and within seconds, your phone should detect the headphones. Select the Jabra headphones on your phone. Some phones may require a password; follow the voice prompts from your headphones.
The multiuse button allows you to turn music on or off, or answer the phone. A double tap allows you to redial the person you spoke to last.

The Jabra headphones are light (only 22 grams!) and comfortable despite being bigger than earbuds. I hardly notice them!
The Jabra PACE wireless headphones come with 3 sets of eargels (small, medium and large) so you can get the perfect fit. Since I have tiny ears, the mediums wouldn’t stay in my ears, but after changing to size small, the eargels stayed where they were supposed to be. The loops fit comfortably over my ears and held the headphones in place even when I was wearing sports sunglasses and a toque. Sweat and moisture resistant materials prevent slippage for a secure fit throughout your workout.
I love the look of these headphones! The reflective strip across the back is a nice safety feature. Choose red, blue, or yellow for a pop of color!
