Highlight: IPX5 rating
Get it for: Rs 3,999

Headphone jacks are fast disappearing from premium smartphones, driving up demand for Bluetooth earphones. Now, Chinese phone manufacturer Honor has entered the fast-growing but competitive wireless market with Sport Pro.

The in-ear headphones, with a variety of colour gradients, are designed for fitness enthusiasts. They boast of ear tips that are shaped a lot like Apple Earpods. The Honor headphones come with six pairs of silicone ear tips to let you pick the right size.

The Sport Pro has an IPX5 rating which makes it sweat and splash-resistant. This means you do not have to worry about the device not working while working out.

Also, the neckband is really lightweight and the magnetic earbuds go into sleep mode when stuck together and reconnect when pulled apart.

There is three-button control panel attached to the fabric cable and you can use a voice assistant to make calls or play audio.

The Sport Pro offers a satisfactory audio experience but has no noise-cancellation mode. They produce deep bass and clear mids. You can also fast forward or rewind tracks.

However, at a price point of Rs 3,999, you may get better options in the market -- Realme even has true wireless earbuds at the same price.

But the highlight of the Sport Pro is its battery backup. The earphones promise 18 hours of battery life and come with fast-charging support. With just five minutes of charging, you can get 4 hours of music playback.

So, if you like to hit the gym or go running or cycling, you can consider buying the Sport Pro. Or there is the JBL Endurance that offers similar features at a slightly lower price.
