Jabra unveils its new true wireless headphones, designed for athletes and users in a bit of a hurry.
In just a few years, wireless headphones have established themselves as the allies of choice for music lovers. Much more practical than wired devices, which promised to get tangled at all times, or helmets that are sometimes too large and heavy during physical activity, earbuds are positioned as the best alternative today for running or just a workout at the gym.
But to really establish itself in the segment, the iterations of the various brands in the sector must show off and integrate increased resistance to sweat. Because yes, this can greatly hamper the durability of the devices, if they do not include a sufficiently high certification. A subtlety well understood by Jabra, which unveils the latest generation of its Elite Active range.
While it has only just unveiled its Elite 3, the brand is not idle and presents its Elite 4 Active. An improved version of the previous model, with some new features that are more popular with athletes. The Elite 4 Active now benefit from an IP57 water resistance certification, compared to IP55 on the Elite 3. This allows them to withstand fine rain during outdoor sessions, but also the user’s sweat for intensive sessions. .
Active noise reduction to immerse yourself in your session
Indoors and out, the Jabra Elite 4 Active promise to block out unwanted sound to allow users to fully immerse themselves in their music. For running sessions in town, where it is necessary to remain vigilant and have a complete knowledge of the outside world, the Heartrough function makes it possible to transcribe the surrounding sounds thanks to the microphones present in the headphones.
Moreover, under the hood, the Elite 4 Active have 6 mm speakers that promise to adapt to a wide range of frequencies (between 20 and 20,000 Hz) when in music mode, against 100 at 8000 Hz in voice mode. The device supports Qualcomm aptX and SBC codices.
The 4 MEMS microphones promise clear and enhanced voice calls through noise reduction. It will also be possible to personalize your audio experience using the Jabra Sound + application. Finally, the headphones are compatible with a majority of voice assistants on the market, starting with Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant.
For users who still have their headphones screwed to their ears, Jabra announces a battery life of up to 7 hours with the headphones alone and no less than 28 hours with the charging box. Ten minutes in the case promises to offer an hour of continuous listening. For those in a hurry, it is possible to take advantage of the mono mode to charge one earpiece using the other.
The Jabra Elite 4 Active are already available in France. They are marketed at 119.99 euros and available in three colors: black, blue and mint.
