The Tagg Spotrts+ is only available in black colour
With most of the handset manufacturers eliminating the 3.5 headphone jack from their smartphones, Bluetooth earphones are getting popular. And with so many options out there in the market, it is very difficult to find a perfectly suitable accessory for yourself. With that being said, let us introduce the Tagg Sports+.
The India-based brand has a decent history of making good quality Bluetooth headsets. The Sports+ wireless earphones were introduced at a price tag of Rs 5,999 last year, which are now available exclusively on Amazon for Rs 3,499. We have been using the device for over a week and here is our experience.
The Tagg Sports+ comes with a tangle-free 21.6-inch cord, which stayed without messing up in our jeans pocket and even in a backpack. Its makers have done a good job in making the earphone small and lightweight. The company features a black colour case inside the box, which can easily house the unit, provided micro USB and pair of two extra earbuds.
Tagg has provided stabilisers with the headset that works to some extent in keeping the earpiece well in place even while you run or exercising in the gym. The Sports+ comes with a nano-coating which makes the earphone sweat proof. Further, it comes with the built-in magnets, which lets the person locks the earpiece together around the neck whenever they are not in use, to avoid losing.
In terms of comfort, the earphone surely gives a packed fit, which is easily able to block maximum ambient noise, but the level of comfort varied a lot, as we had issues while using it for long hours, and results in pain in our ears.
The earpiece definitely offers good sound quality and there are no distortions even at full volume. To pair the device, one will have to long press the play/pause button to activate. The search for the device on our smartphone was shown by the name of "Tagg Sports+". It is worth noting that pairing the earphone to a new device is a time-consuming process, as we took 7-8 attempts everytime we tried to connect it with the different gadgets.
Once connected, the LED light on the microphone will turn Blue, and can even hear the computerised voice in the earbuds, which will announce that it is “Connected”. You will love the music playback through this headset as the audio spectrum offered is quite vibrant.
In terms of call quality, the earphones are not able to provide an optimum hands-free experience. As we had to hold the microphone closer to the mouth so that receivers on the other side can hear a clean and clear voice.
Further, the microphone has the volume controllers, which are placed at the corners, while the play/pause button is in the middle. With a single click on the middle button, one will be able to play, stop, accept and end calls, however, the long press will reject incoming calls. Other than this the volume rockers can also be used for changing tracks. With a long press on “+” button, you will be able to change to next track and the previous form “-”.
Moving to the Sports+ battery department, we had noticed no difference with the official claimed audio playback time, which offers more than eight hours. The micro USB port for charging is at the top of the microphone unit. Furthermore, there is an LED light on the earplug, which blinks red indicating that it is low on charge. Once charged fully, which takes just around two hours, the LED light turns blue.

The TAGG Sports+ definitely gives impressive sound output and is definitely among the best we have used so far. It has sweat and waterproof earbuds and a tangle-free wire, which are ideal for GYM use. With 8 hours of Battery Backup, the earphone surely adds some plus points to its portfolio. However, paring to new devices and using for long hours is really a pain.
