Jaybird has long been known for making great earphones that are great for training. The Tarah Pro is no exception – these sturdy and comfortable buds are pretty much everything in the checklist that's perfect for training.
When it comes to choosing a solid set of wireless workout earphones, three things are important: fit / comfort, build quality, and last but not least, sound quality. These are the things that we focus on in this test.
Fit and Comfort: Once you've found "your" fit, they're amazing
My biggest complaint about feeling on most earphones – especially for use during exercise she just does not feel well. Or the fit is shit. Or they do not stay in my ears. Seriously, I use the same Bluetooth earphones for the last five years five . I destroyed a sentence with sweat, so I bought a second one. Because these were the best I've ever had when it comes to fit and comfort.
The fit is the most important aspect of any training ear piece. They sound amazing, but if they hurt themselves, do not stay or are generally just uncomfortable, I will not wear them. Period. When I train, I want to focus on … training and not on my earplugs.
When I tried the Tarah Pro for the first time, I was not very impressed with the fit. Then I tried to train with them – I'm a cyclist, so I tested them with indoor training (for safety reasons, no earplugs on the road!), Where I sweat a lot – and I was even less impressed. They slipped on, did not stay inside and frankly just annoying.
I've tried several tips (they come with three different sets of different sizes), but that did not help either. So I turned to Jaybird and asked what I did wrong, and they sent back the Tarah Pro Fit Guide. Let me tell you something: This is a Game Changer .
After looking at the Fit Guide, I discovered that there are two ways to wear the Tarah Pros: over the ear and under the ear. I had been trying to get them to work with the "under" method all the time, wishing they were over the ear. When I found out that you can either do or was, my mind was blown.
So I watched the video on how to set it up for use over the ear. The design here is so freakin 'cool: You can literally turn the "Ear-Gel" in a different direction, which puts the bud itself in the right position for use above the ear. The cable is then routed around your ear. Here it is.
After finding out my perfect fit, I fell in love with these buds. The over-the-ear fit kept them perfectly in position no matter how much I sweat or how hard I worked during training. They did what good workouts should do: they ran out of the way, let me enjoy music and focused on my training.
Simply put, these are my new favorite earphones for workouts. After years of using some rather outdated buds, the Tarah Pro has finally replaced them as my first choice.
Construction Quality and Design: Tough Built
So I admit that it took over three years to destroy the buds of my other athletes, and I had with Tarah Do not spend nearly as much time, but they seem to be very solid in the six or so weeks that I used them.  They have some thoughtful features that I believe will definitely increase the life of these buds like the plaited cable. It's not a sticky rubber coating, but a much more robust and practical cloth-like material.
The earphones themselves also feel first-class. They are "heavy" in the right way – light enough to stay in your ears, but just so big that they do not feel cheap. They also have magnets on the back for them to stick together. That's cool!
When you wear the buds, the in-line remote control on the right hangs down, which can cause them to weigh on this side if the timing belt is not tightened. If you wear the annual buds, the remote will stick snugly to the head when the strap is tightened. I find that very convenient for quick use and extremely convenient. It's a win-win situation. (I'm a big fan of the over-the-ear format.)
Finally, I'll briefly discuss two more features: the app and battery life. Like so many other Bluetooth headphones, there is now an app that can be used for a handful of different things, such as: For example, setting the EQ or finding new content. It's pretty simple stuff and, frankly, nothing you need to use the headset .
There is an advantage for Android users, whoever: If connected, the app displays the battery life of the Tarah Pro on the Internet at Notification Field / Bar. So you always know how much juice is left. Cool, cool.
When talking about battery life, Jaybird claims that the Tarah Pro can have 14 hours of playback time, which, quite frankly, is quite a bit of running time for something without much battery space , I used them exclusively for indoor training, which I do five times a week for 60 to 120 minutes a day (sometimes longer on weekends), which averages six to eight hours a week.
Tarah Pro I had to charge her about once every two weeks, which goes along with Jaybird's estimate. Of course, that will change depending on the situation – if you use them with a higher volume or in more extreme weather conditions (like Texas Heat, ugh) you will probably get a little less. Nevertheless, the battery life is stable.
Here is also the charging situation to discuss: The Tarah Pro uses a proprietary charger and pogo pins on the back of the remote control. It's kind of awkward and annoying that you can just use a standard microUSB or USB-C charger, but it also makes sense to keep the design rational. And since they have such a good battery life, she is not a total deal breaker.
Sound Quality: Full and Defined
What's good is a set of earphones / headphones / face speakers if they do not sound good? Not very, I would say. I mean, there's always the argument for "these are just for training," so they do not have to sound that good (that's the argument for the earphones I've been wearing for years). The good news? The soundkiller of the Tarah Pros.
If you've found the right tips for your ears, this should be a good seal. This means that there is a good bass response in your head that provides a lot of depth. But not so much that they are muddy! There is such a good balance between lows, mids and heights with the Tarah Pro, I was very impressed as soon as I joined them and started jamming.
I'm not going to deal with the Tarah Pro sound All you need to know is that they are very balanced – great lows, clear highs and enough mids to keep things full. Thanks to their clarity, they are great for both music and podcasts.
Overall, these are excellent earphones. Once you've found your fit, they're incredibly comfortable, they sound great and look pretty sturdy. As the headline says, these are my new favorite sports earphones. You are fantastic.
