Headphone users no longer have to make a choice between great music headphones and headset designed for voice and calls as Jabra has launched new headphones that feature both quality music and strong voice capability.
At a press conference this week, Jabra launched four newest members of the Elite series in the Philippines – the Elite 45e, Elite 65t, Elite Active 65t, and Elite 65e, all modeling the best-selling Jabra Elite Sport, the most technically advanced true wireless sports earbuds which set the standard for the Elite product suite by incorporating innovative audio technology.
Each new Elite product contains innovative microphone configurations to ensure users will always be heard, whether you’re speaking to voice assistants such as Alexa or your family, and whether you’re indoors or out on the street. In addition, the companion Jabra Sound+ app allows you to personalize your music to the sound that suits you.
In addition to the outstanding voice and music experience, the new Elite products also come with the security of a two-year warranty against dust and water ingress (two years for the Elite Active 65t also including sweat ingress). While users will experience the great voice and music experience that Elite products offer, they will also be able to choose the wearing style that suits them best.
The Elite family includes true wireless and soft neckband variants with the suffix letter signifying the styles clearly using ‘e’ for earbud and ‘t’ for true wireless.
For those who prefer using voice commands, the new products allow voice support for all major voice services, now including Amazon Alexa on-the-go. Jabra will be among the first movers to enable this mobile feature, providing customers with access to Alexa directly from the earbuds. With Alexa, you can ask to play music, hear the news, check weather, control smart home devices, and much more. Elite 65t delivers a 4-microphone array and superior sound.
