Jabra unveils next-generation Coach Special Edition wireless sports headphones with world-first automatic rep counting.
A study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise suggests that listening to music during intense yet unpleasant exercise such as high-intensity interval training (HIIT) makes the workout more enjoyable and pushes you to work out harder. When participants listened to music while cycling they increased their power output more than participants who biked in silence.
Wireless headphones have been around for a while now, helping you push through those final reps, but Jabra have just dropped a brand new spin on the humble earbud with not only a quality music listening experience – but the ability to count your reps whilst in the gym!
The Jabra Sport Coach Special Edition wireless headphones are the first of their kind with automated detection and tracking of repetitions, giving you the freedom to concentrate on your workout. The first headphones to feature automatic repetition counting, using TrackFit motion sensor guides, along with in-ear coaching.
It’s perfect for a gym session, and you can combine cross training with running because the integrated motion sensor will also measure distance, pace, steps, cadence and calories burned.
The idea is to workout with the Jabra Sport Life app on your smartphone, which will provide intelligent in-ear coaching for the ideal motivation – becoming a trusted training coach for your personalised workout. The headphones offers guided exercise routines, counts the number of reps and advises when to move on to the next exercise. This all happens automatically without the need to look at your smartphone or touch your headphones. Integrated training management through their Sport Life app means you can build a customised workout and analyse your performance throughout.
Studies show that listening to music can increase the amount of serotonin, a neurotransmitter in the brain that regulates mood, appetite and sleep. Listening to pleasant music resulted in a boost in serotonin levels in platelets, according to a 2000 study published in the European Archives of Psychiatry and Clinical Neuroscience.
As can be expected from a quality audio brand like Jabra, nothing is spared in terms of providing a quality experience:
- The headphones now come with COMPLY Foam Tips, keeping the ultra-light earbuds locked in place for the perfect fit. It also ensures a more powerful sound with passive noise cancellation and enhanced bass.
- The headphones have also been upgraded to IP55 certified water-resistance in accordance with US military standards to resist wind, rain, storm, sweat or shock impact.
- Lightweight (16 grams), up to 5 hours of talk/music time and a three-year extended warranty against sweat.
