Danish wireless headset maker, Jabra, just announced a generation of in-ear wireless headphones that is specifically design for active people. The Jabra Sport Coach Special Edition might look like any other headphones on the market, but there's more to the design and technology than meets the eye.

The key feature of these new sports headphones is its ability to automatically count reps, which is made possible with the TrackFit motion sensor embedded in the left earbud. At the moment, the sensor only recognizes 10 activities, including dumbbell-based and bodyweight exercises. In addition to counting reps, the sensor can also track steps, distance, and calories burnt during a workout.
