I’m in love with wireless headphones, have been for years. And I’ve had a few different sets over the years, some better than others. Recently I needed to get a new set because the mic on my old one stopped working well, and then at all. I asked around, and heard that the Jabra Move Wireless Headphones were pretty highly rated. I did a little research on my own and didn’t really find anything much better, at least not in the same price range, so I ordered them.
A day later, I was rocking to my music in the office with my new headphones. They’ve got great sound isolation and good bass, without being too much. The real test began when I took my first call and needed to use the mic. The audio quality was pretty good, not the best I’ve ever had, but I didn’t sound like I was talking from a tin can to my co-workers, and using the mic didn’t cause the audio output quality to drop significantly. It wasn’t the same as if I turned off the mic, but it wasn’t terrible.
Rather than do a long and rambling in-depth review of everything about the headphones, I’ll just give a short list of likes and dislikes.
- The on-ear design hurts after wearing them for a few hours, I generally prefer around-ear headphones to avoid this, but the smaller size and profile is good enough that I can usually ignore the slight pain.
- The adjustable parts are a little stiff and don’t make it easy to re-adjust if I need to, but not a huge deal breaker since I don’t need to often.
- The physical on/off switch is so much better than the press-and-hold button I’ve had on previous headphones.
- The vocal cues for pairing the headphones and letting you know it’s connected (it talks to you rather than a weird set of beeps and boops) are awesome.
- There is a wired option, which is a must if I suddenly run out of battery, or need to connect to something without bluetooth.
- Battery life is pretty good, using them most of the day in the office, I usually only have to recharge every other day or so (which I can usually do overnight when it gets low).
- Clean and modern design means I don’t look like an idiot while wearing them.
