Let me say this upfront - I'm a light runner.
And when I say light, I mean not even bringing my house keys.
So when I heard about the Jabra Sport Bluetooth headset, I was not impressed with the thought of having to run with my iPhone strapped to my arm.
Just looking at it, I was sceptical. There were three interchangeable earbuds but I've been known to have odd shaped earholes and none of them really fit mine.
But I must admit that this problem was mostly solved by the snug fit of the earpiece.
It hugged the curvature of my ear and on a whole, showed no signs of falling off no matter how many cute guys I turned to look at while running.
Out on the street, the phone weighed me down.
The iPhone isn't exactly the smallest and lightest phone around.
But once I stopped being grumpy about it, I quickly got used to the weight.
The turning point for me came when I turned it on.
The sound was pretty darn good for a wireless gadget.
It has a powerful bass sound that motivated me to run faster and further despite the humid weather.
The built-in FM Radio was a plus when I grew tired of listening to my usual songs, and voice clarity during calls were amazing.
But when it came to classical music, I was severely let down.
Vivaldi's Storm sounded like a drizzle.
The gloriously furious piece was airy on the Jabra Sport and I must say it was upsetting that car noise was not cancelled out.
Then again, not many people listen to Rachmaninoff while trying to complete a 10km run.
At the gym, the Jabra Sport was definitely more attractive to me. Once I didn't need to have my phone strapped to my arm and my surroundings were much quieter, I loved it.
With my phone in the treadmill bottle-holder, it became my best friend as I didn't have to worry about my flailing arms getting tangled in earphone wires.
My nitpicking aside, the Jabra Sport meets the needs of a sportsman - it's stylish, functional and can give you the bass you need to accompany you on that heart-pumping run.
