Design & Features
Jabra Move is an On-Ear wireless Headphone using 4.0 Bluetooth Technology with 40mm dynamic speaker and frequency range of 20Hz to 20kHz. It has a great, edgy and minimalistic Scandanivian design made of premium materials which make it very solid and durable. The headphone measures H 172 x W 146,1 x D 59 mm (6.77 x 5.75 x 2.87 in) and weighs 5.59 oz. Very light and portable. Got a durable stainless steel headband covered with dirt resistant fabric for life on the move and it can be easily adjusted for better head fit of any types. Comes in 3 different nice colors; Black, Red and Cobalt. Selection is in your hand.
The headband is very flexible and adjustable for comfortable wearing while it could be a bit pressing when using it for longer listening and you would surly need some breaks. The headphone does not fold up, while it’s light weight and compact size still make it easy for portability. The earcups are covered with soft padding that make them super-friendly with your ears for longer listening and the earcups also house the device’s control buttons. There are the Left & Right indicators in the earcups.
On the left earcup you can find the 3.5 mm audio cable slot, the Volume Up and Down buttons and the multi-function button which is located just right in the middle of volume Up & Down buttons for accepting and rejecting calls. By pressing the multi-function button once it plays your tracks and the double press will dial the last number on your phone call history. Also, the volume rocker doubles as navigation to skip and backtrack to a previous song with a longer hold of each button. On the right earcup you find the Micro USB charging port, On/Off button and the Bluetooth and battery indicators. Very simple and straightforward. The headphone can operate in the temperatures of up to -10° C to 60° C (14 F to 140 F).
There is a 3.5 mm Audio Cable included in the box to convert the headphone into a wired device when you run out of battery. A big plus for it.
Sound & Performance
Thanks to the 40mm dynamic speakers that make Jabra Move sound excellent. It produces balanced sound with highs and Mids while it more favors the Lower range. The only little concern is the noise Isolation which is a bit weak but it still avoids the outside unwanted noises for a real and natural listening experience. The wired and wireless modes both deliver almost the same quality sound. Overall, the audio quality is great and the headphone sounds excellent with any types of music and has the highest customers rating and reviews on sound quality and performance.
Battery & Connectivity
Jabra Move has a built-in battery and the company claims 8 hours of music time and 12 days of standby time, while it could roughly last up to 6-7 hours listening to different types of music with mid and high volume level which is a bit disappointing. Our only concern is the battery life which is lesser comparing to some of the other competing wireless headphones in its price range but the good thing is that you can still continue to listen to your music with the included 3.5 mm cable when it runs out of the battery. The headphone can be fully charged in approximately 2 hours.
Pairing is very simple, it switches to pairing mode as soon as you turn the device on. The Move uses Bluetooth 4.0 version technology and also supports auto-pairing. Unfortunately it does not feature the NFC function. The operation range is up to 33 feet which is a normal Bluetooth coverage range and it can connect to all Bluetooth enabled devices – phones, computers, tablets and more. Please make sure to have the optional cord with you while traveling so you can use your headphones on flights. The connection is great and works very good.
Jabra Move has a sporty look and design with great sound quality and features though it still lacks some advanced features that the noise cancellation could be one of it. Built with great materials and has a solid construction that make it durable and strong. The device would be a budget buy wireless headphone with its great design and outstanding sound quality. If you are ready to buy a multi-use wireless headphone with balanced sound and nice look then you can count on it. It really worth for the given price tag.
