Headphones come in many shapes and sizes. There are those that entirely cover the ears, and are great for sitting still, letting the music cover you like a warm, security blanket. Then there are those designed for people on the move. That’s what Jabra has created with their new ELITE line of headphones and earbuds. Take them on the bus, wear them while working out. Listen to your music anywhere, during any activity, and in any weather. Enter this contest and if you may win one of 4 pairs that Best Buy is giving away!

Headphones come in a dazzling array of styles and designs

There are many types of headphones out there to suit everyone’s personal style. Audiophiles and studio engineers gravitate toward the over-ear models, that surround the ear with cushioning, isolating them from outside noises, so the listener can concentrate on just the sounds provided through the phones.

Very similar to those are the on-ear headphones. I use this style at work because they have excellent sound, but allow some of the sounds around me in so that I am aware when a coworker asks me question. They enable me to stay alert to the people around me, which can be important at work.

Then there are a variety of in-ear styled headphones, including wired versions and many styles of wireless headphones.

Wireless headphones are for everyone

Many people think that wireless headphones are for people who have the most modern type of cell phone, one that may not have a headphone jack. Alternatively, many may assume that since the new Jabra headphones have “elite” in their name they are designed for elite athletes. However, these headphones are great for you and me, average people who love our music, want to be listen to our music anywhere, and don’t what our headphones to be destroyed by a little moisture like sweat, or the some dust we encounter on a run around our neighbourhoods or just getting off public transit.

The prizes in this contest will allow you more freedom than you are probably accustomed to with headphones. We are giving away 2 different models from the Jabra ELITE line. My favourite feature is that they do not need to connect to a phone with a wire: they connect to your phone, or tablet, or computer wirelessly using Bluetooth.

The Jabra wireless headphone prizes

The Jabra ELITE 45e noise cancelling headphones enable you to focus on your music and workout, and escape the noisy distractions around you. The flexible neck band allows you to pop them out when you want, while keeping them securely resting around your neck.

The Jabra ELITE active 65t noise cancelling truly wireless earpbuds inconspicuously rest in your ears delivering amazing audio for approximately 5 hours on a single charge—that should be ample time for your commute, or your workout (the ELITE 45e headphones will last up to about 8 hours thanks to having more room for a larger battery). Both Jabra models feature dual microphones, so when you take calls using these, both sides of the conversation will be crystal clear.

I know I want both of these, but definitely I am leaning towards the ELITE 45e as best for my needs. I like the extra battery life, and the fact that I can just rest them on my shoulders when not in use. How about you?


This contest is easy to enter, but you can only enter once. In a comment beneath this article, tell us which headphone style is your favourite and why. Perhaps you are a traditionalist who loves the over-ear experience. Personally, I’ve never tried Truly Wireless so I would like to try a pair to see if the freedom from wires works for me. Let us know your preference and why, and you may win one of these great Jabra headphones.


At the end of this contest we will select four (4) winners from all eligible entries. Two winners will receive a set of Jabra ELITE 45e headphones, and two winners will receive the Best Buy exclusive blue and copper coloured version of the Jabra ELITE active 65t truly wireless earbuds.

This contest runs from July 20th until August 5th.

Remember you can only enter once. However, you must know someone, a family member or friend, who would love a new pair of Jabra headphones. Share this contest with them so they too have a chance to win.

Good luck.
