Jabra introduced Elite 85h headphones and Elite Active 45e earbuds at CES 2019 in Las Vegas, two new wearables equipped with cutting-edge technical specifications that will be placed on the market in the next few months at $299 and $99 respectively.
Jabra Elite 85h
Elite 85h wireless headphones position in the top band of the market and are able to guarantee battery life up to 32 hours. Their main characteristic is the presence of the integrated system based on SmartSound artificial intelligence to independently modify the sound experience according to the surrounding environment.
The system allows users to customize the three levels (Commute, In public or In private) of the Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which will then be managed in a completely automatic manner. The 8 microphones implemented on Elite 85h are used by SmartSound to detect background noises (it recognizes over 6,000 different sounds) and to also manage the volume of your voice during a phone call.
Elite 85h headphones have an IP52 certified body, therefore protected against rain and dust, and promise exceptional musical clarity under any circumstances using the two 40 mm speakers.
The Jabra Elite 85h will be available in Black, Titanium Black, Gold Beige and Navy colors, and will set you back $299 when they become available in stores in April, and for pre-orders in March.
Jabra Elite Active 45e
Jabra Elite Active 45e is wireless earphones mainly indicated for those who practice physical activity since they offer an IP67 certification and have convenient bows to stay well-eared even when on the move. The declared battery is equal to 9 hours of use with a single charge and can also be used to make and receive calls.
Both new Jabra products interface seamlessly with the Jabra Sound+ Android and iOS smartphone app through which you can manage all settings, check the battery status and select the voice assistant to use.
While the Jabra Elite Active 45e has been priced at $99 and will be available online later this quarter.
