Today, Jabra launched not just two, but three products within their Elite series – the Elite 45e and Elite 65e, wireless and equipped with a neckband to prevent it from falling, and the Elite Active 65t, a truly wireless pair of earbuds. Jabra even invited Patricia K, a well-known television host and radio DJ to be the emcee of the day, introducing us to the myriad of products that Jabra has under their belt.
First up, we have the Elite 45e, a pair of wireless earbuds that comes packed with a neckband that is made of memory wire that offers a lightweight and comfortable solution that allows the neckband to be fitted comfortable around your neck. The Elite 45e is capable of running for 8 hours from a full charge to provide you a day’s worth of music and calls. It only takes two hours to fully charge the earbuds, and if you wish, top it up for 15 minutes and you will get an hour of music time. The earbuds are also IP54 rated, and comes bundled along with Amazon Alexa, Siri or Google Now for all your voice assistant needs.
The next product they showcased is the Elite 65e, also a pair of wireless earbuds with a larger neckband to give you that extra sense of security. It is also packed with two different levels of noise cancellation – Active and Passive noise cancellation. The earbuds are also equipped with a three-way microphone system that ensures your voice is crystal clear to the person that you are talking to. It can last up to 8 hours with the ANC on, and a whopping 13 hours if you leave the ANC off. The earbuds are also IP54 rated, so sweat and water will not be an issue.
Saving the best for last, the Elite Active 65t. Following the success of the Elite 65t that was launched not too long ago, the Elite Active 65t provides users with a truly wireless listening experience, even when working out. The device is IP56 rated, so water, sweat and dust will not be an issue for the earbuds. They also boasts a 15 hour battery life with the charging case included. On its own, it can last up to five hours in a single full charge. For those who integrated voice assistants into their daily life, Amazon Alexa is available on the earbuds.
As for pricing and availability, the Elite 45e is priced at RM399, while the Elite 65e is priced at RM949, and the star of the show, the Elite Active 65t, is priced at RM849. All three products are available to pre-order from online marketplaces such as Lazada, 11Street and Shopee. The devices will be officially available to purchase after the 4th of July.
