Design and Build quality
The Jabra Elite sports earbuds are pretty simple and they do not have any catchy design on them. It is an all black earbud and they do not look as visually appealing as the Jaybird RUN earbuds. The Jaybird RUN earbuds look more appealing with the Jaybird Logo on them and the black and silver color combination.
Jabra Elite earbuds are built with a comfortable material that makes them really comfy to wear for long hours. The Jaybird Run, on the other hand, comes in two different color combinations and is relatively smaller than the Jabra Elite.
Overall, both the headphones have a good design and build quality but when it comes to which one of these headphones is better than the other, then the title must go to the Jaybird RUN. The design on the Jaybird RUN is definitely much better than any other wireless earbuds out there.
The sound quality on the Jaybird RUN is really good, Jaybird headphones are known for their sound quality and in comparison to the Jabra Elite, I preferred the sound quality on the Jaybird RUN headphones. The sound quality on Jabra Elite is good as well but it falls short by a little when compared to the Jaybird RUN.
On both the headphones you can take up calls with the inbuilt mic. There can be connectivity issues with the Jaybird RUN but I didn’t find any with the Jabra Elite headphones so that is a major win. The Jabra Elite also comes with a few other extra features like the Audio Pass where you can decide if you want to hear your surroundings while exercising.
Both the earbuds come with an app which can be used to tweak the music. The Jabra Elite sports comes with a heart rate monitor as well and an additional feature to control the noise isolation. Overall, both the earbuds have a good sound quality with the Jaybird being slightly better.
The fact that the earbuds are completely wireless makes them really comfortable and easy to use during workout sessions. Apart from being wireless, you can choose the perfect ear tips that give you the most comfortable fit and stays in your ears during extensive workouts.
The Jaybird RUN is lighter and hence gives the perfect fit that you might want when it comes to working out. I personally found the headphones really comfortable and they do not look chunky while worn on the ears. They are perfect when it comes to comfort.
In the case of the Jabra Elite earbuds, once I had chosen the right ear tips, the headphones were pretty comfortable and it was easy to use them in the gym. I did go for a run as well but I must say that you need to reduce the noise cancellation on these when you are outside since they block out all the noises which could be from vehicles and other sources.
The Jabra Elite sports Bluetooth earbuds are waterproof and have an IPX7 rating. The headphones can easily last you pretty long and you can if you drop them in the water you do not need to worry about damaging them as they have an IPX 7 rating.
The Jaybird RUN headphones are sweatproof and waterproof, hence you can splash water on them and they are still going to work perfectly fine. This makes the headphones durable from most of the external factors that would harm an average headphone.
Both the headphones come with a charging case, hence you can keep your earbuds safe when not in use. The earbuds can even work individually hence in the case you just want to use one of them for taking calls, you can do that as well.
The battery life on the Jaybird RUN headphones is 4 hours and the charging case can give you another 8 hours of battery life so that means you get a total of 12 hours of charge if you are outside. However, the battery life of the earbuds on its own is just 4 hours so make sure you have your charging case in the case of long travel journeys.
The Jabra Elite comes with 4.5 hours of battery life along with 9 hours of extra battery life in teh charging in the case which honestly is pretty good considering you have an HRM on these earbuds as well. Honestly, when it comes to battery life, I think the Jabra Elite is amazing.
The battery life of the Jabra Elite is better in comparison to the Jaybird RUN. So if you are someone who chooses their headphones based on the battery life then the Jabra Elite is the one you are looking for in this case.
The Jabra Elite and the Jaybird RUN are pretty good versions of the Apple airpods with a twist of sports Bluetooth headphones to it. The headphones are pretty comfortable and the Jabra Elite comes with an HRM which can be used to track details of your heart and health.
Both the earbuds are completely wireless making them one of the best choices for running and other vigorous activities. If you are considering which one is better than the other then I might give it up to the Jabra Elite as I liked its battery life, HRM feature, durability much better than that of the Jaybird RUN.
I must admit that they are equally good and the Jabra Elite was slightly better than the Jaybird RUN for me. However, if you think otherwise and feel that the Jaybird RUN is better than the Jabra Elite then let us know the reason, in the comments down below!
