Where i live it seems that people have just invented the "art" of running both at the gym and outdoors so i see more and more of them every day wearing wired and wireless earphones while running and of course while exercising. Now the ones who are really into running and exercising have actually invested quite a bit of time, effort and money in them so they always seem to use the most popular secure fit models by most of the leading manufacturers in this industry like SONY, Panasonic, Philips, Jabra and BlueAnt and since I’m always looking for a good pair myself i decided to check and see what's really selling in the market today. Well after visiting a few local stores i noticed the ROX Wireless earphones by Jabra and since i liked their design and quality quite a lot i emailed our friends over at Jabra who a few months back send over a pair for me to test.
Jabra is the brand of GN Netcom, a subsidiary of GN Store Nord A/S (GN) - listed on NASDAQ OMX. Jabra employs approximately 850 people worldwide and in 2011 produced an annual revenue which amounted to DKK 2,106 million. Jabra is a world leader in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of a broad range of hands-free communications solutions. With a reputation for innovation, reliability, and ease of use that goes back more than two decades, Jabra’s consumer and business divisions produce corded and wireless headsets, plus mobile and in-office speakerphones that empower individuals and businesses through increased freedom of movement, comfort, and functionality.
The ROX Wireless in-ear buds by Jabra feature Bluetooth v4.0 connectivity (support NFC, A2DP v1.2, hands free profile v1.6 and AVRCP v1.4), IP52 protection rating (dust and water resistant) and offer full stereo sound via two 6mm dynamic drivers (20Hz-20KHz frequency response with 92dB sensitivity and 16 Ohm impedance) connected together by a 55mm long cable. To complete the "package" Jabra has also made use of a MEMS (MicroElectrical-Mechanical System) microphone with a frequency range of 100Hz-8KHz 14dB sensitivity (+-3) and a lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack capable of powering the ROX Wireless for up to 5.5 hours. However we mostly care about how they look and sound so let's get a much closer look at the ROX Wireless in-ear stereo buds.
