We were mightily impressed with Jabra's last sporty earphones - check out our 4 star Jabra Sport Pulse review - and now the Danish company is back for a second bite of the virtual coaching cherry with the Jabra Sport Coach.

Claiming to be the first wireless headset with cross training coaching and music, the Coach earphones don't pack the heart rate sensing tech of the Pulse; instead they focus on specific exercises and movement tracking using the TrackFit motion sensor.

This sensor, combined with data from the Jabra Sport Life app, allows you to record metrics from over 40 different exercise types; counting reps and the like, making them the ideal fit for cross training and hight intensity workouts.

Like the Pulse headset, the Coach (as you may have guessed from the name) offers a virtual coach in your ear, combined with your tunes, in Dolby-quality audio transmitted over A2DP Bluetooth.

"For sports, we are committed to delivering innovative audio solutions designed to enhance the training experience for fitness enthusiasts," explained Jabra's CEO René Svendsen-Tune.

"We started by specifically targeting runners and now we are taking the next step by delivering a solution optimised for cross trainers. We see clear possibilities for in-ear audio solutions combined with biometrics."

The Jabra Sport Coach earphones offer a 10 day standby lifecycle, with 5.5 hours of playback. They go on sale later this month, costing £119.99.

Wareable will be plugging the Jabra Sport Coach headset on next week for an intense training session, be sure to check back on the site to see how we got on.
