Jabra has just introduced two premium additions to their Elite true wireless earbuds range. The Jabra Elite 8 Active, tested to be the world’s toughest earbuds, and the Elite 10, Jabra’s most advanced earbuds for work and leisure, offer clear calls, all-day comfort, and an immersive Dolby Atmos experience with Dolby Head Tracking.
Jabra Elite 8 Active
The Elite 8 Active redefines durability and fit, designed to withstand any activity or environment. These earbuds meet the stringent requirements of the US Military Standard for Ruggedized Electronics (810H), ensuring they endure humidity, high temperatures, rain, and even high altitudes. They are fully dust and waterproof, with IP68 rating, and the charging case is rated IP54, making it dust and splashproof. The earbuds have also passed Highly Accelerated Corrosion Testing (HACT), proving their anti-corrosion credentials. The Jabra ShakeGrip technology ensures a secure fit during any activity.
While durability is a top priority, the Elite 8 Active also delivers exceptional sound quality. Powered by Dolby Audio, these earbuds provide lifelike, clear sound for a comfortable listening experience. Adaptive Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) automatically adjusts ANC performance to your surroundings, while Wind Neutralising HearThrough technology filters wind interference without blocking external sounds. With 6-mic call technology, wind noise protection, smartwatch connectivity, Google Assistant, Fast Pair, Swift Pair, Spotify Tap, and up to 8 hours of battery life (32 hours with the case), these earbuds are ideal for work and workouts.
Jabra Elite 10
The Elite 10 earbuds are designed to offer the best combination of comfort, sound, and calls for work and leisure. Optimised for Dolby Atmos content, they provide an immersive experience with Dolby Head Tracking. This feature keeps users at the centre of the soundstage as they move their heads, creating a more natural sound experience.
The Elite 10 boasts Jabra Advanced Active Noise Cancellation, which auto-adjusts to your environment. Infrasonic waves measure the ear canal, and algorithms detect noise leakage and wind conditions, allowing the earbuds to automatically switch to the highest ANC gain in noisy environments and reduce gain in quieter places.
Jabra ComfortFit technology provides a natural, airy fit and less occlusion with its semi-open design, relieving ear pressure and enhancing comfort. The earbuds are designed to accommodate various ear shapes and sizes, with soft silicon surfaces for reduced wearing fatigue. They feature 6-mic call technology, 6 hours of battery life (27 hours with the case), wireless charging, Bluetooth Multipoint connection, hands-free voice assistance, and easy pairing.
