Jabra Move Wireless Review

Connectivity


Upon turning it on for the first time, the Jabra Move Wireless is automatically placed into pairing mode. Once it’s connected, we’re able to maintain connectivity to a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for up to 50 feet before losing connection. Pairing it to another device is a simple process too, seeing that the Move Wireless is always set into pairing mode when it’s turned on.

Performance

Favoring the low audio range, much like many other contemporary headphones, bass is well represented.

Let’s start off with its wired quality. Like the majority of today’s youth oriented headphones, the Jabra Move Wireless favors a bass-heavy audio production – so lows are represented in the audio range more than anything else. Luckily, though, it’s not to the point too overpowering, as mids and highs are still able to come off cleanly. Setting the volume to its loudest, there’s never a point where it sounds shrill or straining. Rather, it’s able to maintain its crisp tones.

Moving over to its Bluetooth connection, we’re happy to report that there’s minimal degradation or separation from its wired audio quality. That’s fantastic news, of course, especially when Jabra’s signature DSP continues to deliver the same crisp audio ranges that are so prominent with its wired connection. Yet again, lows are more profound than everything else. This not a bad thing per se, more so when it seamlessly gives the quality a poppy edge.

Naturally, we can use the Jabra Move Wireless for phone calls too. With its ample volume output and the slight suppression we get from wearing it, voices have a strong presence even if there’s a lot of background noise in the environment. Voices have a clear and concise tone through the headphones, but on the other end of the line, our callers complain about the subtle distortion of our voice – plus the nosie that’s picked up by the microphone. Nevertheless, it’s still quite usable and tolerable enough to handle conversations.

Battery


The manufacturer has its rated to offer 8 hours of talk time/music time, and up to 12 days of standby, but in our real world usage, we’re able to get a little bit over 5 hours between charges. Primarily using it is for workout sessions, which are approximately 2 hours long each time, we don’t necessarily require continuous longevity with its battery life. Certainly, our experience is less than its rating, so recharges are required every few days or so. Thankfully, it takes approximately 1.5 hours for its battery to be fully charged.

Conclusion


Its feature set pales in comparison to other headphones we’ve checked out, nor is there really anything too outstanding with its design, but despite that, the biggest attraction to the Jabra Move Wireless is its excellent audio quality and aggressive price point. With a retail cost of only $99, it’s not something that’ll drain your wallets like some of the other headphones in its category. Best of all, though, is that its audio quality is rich with robust ranges, strong volumes, and crisp tones.

Now, this isn’t the kind of headphones that will win audio purists, but rather, it’s a pair we’d recommend to those who prefer a sporty style of headphones for their workouts. With its sturdy industrial design, the Jabra Move Wireless is something that stays firmly in place – even with heavy activity. And at the same time you’re constantly moving, the Move Wireless is sure to keep the tunes flowing smoothly.


Pros

  • Sturdy design makes it durable
  • Stays firmly in place with heavy activity
  • Excellent audio quality
  • $99 is pretty more aggressive than others

Cons

  • Light on the features
  • Battery life isn’t as long as we’d like

These look nice, but I would have to try them out first. Sony has always been my go-to brand for headphones, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
