Jabra Move Wireless Headphones Brings Wireless Music on the Cheap

You could call the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones “cheap” but you would be wrong. These sub-$100 wireless headphones are inexpensive, but there’s little about their comfort and sound that would qualify as “cheap.” When I first saw them I wasn’t expecting all that much. After using them I was surprised and impressed enough that I can highly recommend them.

Available in three colors the bright pair I was sent for review would probably be better suited to someone quite a bit younger. Thank goodness I don’t have to see myself when I’m wearing headphones.

The sub-$100 price means you don’t get a lot of bells and whistles. There’s no included carry bag and the cables are thin, simple deals. If these cost a lot more I would have been upset, but considering the price I didn’t find it problematic in the least.

Video Review of the Jabra Move a wireless Headphones:

As noted in the introduction, the headphones are far more comfortable and sound far better than I expected. Their lightweight design translates to a minimal amount of fatigue as you wear them for extended periods of time. The controls are fairly simple, and that translates to an ease-of-use that is a pleasure. Flip and hold the power button to put the headphones into pairing mode; pairing takes just a few seconds. From there it is as easy as starting your music and adjusting the volume using the volume controls on the earcup.

And while the headphones offer a decent amount of playback time — 8 hours — it is nice that they can also be used in wired mode.

The headphones adjustments are a bit tight. That means it took me a bit of effort to get them adjusted to the degree of comfort I wanted, but it also meant that once they were adjusted properly they stayed put.

The fit is tight enough that the soft earcups seal well and block out a good deal of ambient noise. The pressure they exert is not, however, so much that they are uncomfortable.

As for the sound? I was impressed that these $99 headphones sounded as good as they do. The sound is good enough that I would highly recommend these for anyone looking to buy wireless headphones for under $100. You can learn more here.
