There are times when you want or even need to take in all the sights and sounds around you, like the CES 2020 showroom floor in Las Vegas. Other times, you’d want to just listen silently to your music and podcasts no matter where you are. Jabra has got your ears covered, both figuratively and literally, with two new audio accessories that block out the noise when you want to immerse yourself in sound whether you’re out for a jog or sitting at your desk.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t is 22 percent smaller than its predecessor, the award-winning Elite Active 65t. Built with a durable coating providing optimized grip, the earbuds are also dust and sweat-resistant, while simultaneously extending battery life by 89 percent (up to 28 hours). The earbuds also boast an increased IP rating from IP56 (of the Active 65t) to IP57, making them waterproof, including a warranty of 2 years.
Noise isolation and MySound
The Jabra Elite Active 75t truly wireless earbuds take after the Elite 75t and adds some sporty goodness to its feature list. That includes IP57 waterproofing, up from the Elite Active 65t’s IP56, and a durable coating that protects the buds from dust and sweat.
Despite being the sporty kind, the Elite Active 75t doesn’t skimp on the audio quality. Even without active noise cancellation, the earbuds’ shape promises optimal passive noise reduction. Jabra MySound and MyControl software features allow users to customize and personalize their listening experience. All of these for a rather pricey $199. The Jabara Elite Active 75t will arrive in February bearing colors of Navy (February), Copper Black (Amazon exclusive, February), Titanium Black (Best Buy US exclusive, February), Grey (April), Sienna (April), and Mint (April).
Also available from Q2 2020 is Jabra MyControls, users will have the option to use just one earbud, allowing for added freedom and extension of battery time. Through the Jabra Sound+ app, users can configure the functions on the left and right earbud to meet their personal preferences.
René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra, said: “We are proud to be taking audio to the next level with our most optimal true wireless earbuds yet. The Elite Active 75t is a testament to Jabra’s engineering expertise and is proof that we are committed to creating the best user experience in the market. And Jabra MySound is a first step in harnessing the expertise of both GN Hearing and Jabra to deliver not just outstanding sound but individualized audio experiences.”
