At CES 2022, Jabra unveiled the newest True Wireless earbuds in the Elite series – the Elite 4 Active, designed for those who want earphones for a number of different workouts, including running, yoga, boxing and more.
The earbuds pack an IP57 rating, making them waterproof and sweatproof. They come in a choice of three colours: navy, black and light mint. In addition, the design of the buds is ergonomic and wing-free, so they’ll fit securely in the ear, even if you’re moving around.
The Elite 4 Active earbuds feature ANC (active noise cancellation) for complete audio immersion, as well as HearThrough technology to filter outside noise in, should you need to be aware of your surroundings. The buds feature a customisable equaliser, perfect for making workout music more immersive.
There’s also 4-microphone technology with wind-noise protection to ensure that phone calls are clearly audible. Buds can also be used on their own with mono mode.
Jabra claims that the Elite 4 Active earbuds can last up to seven hours on a single charge, which can be extended up to 28 hours if used with the charging case. In addition, the case supports fast-charging technology.
Software wise, the Jabra Elite 4 Active buds support Google Fast Pair on Android 6.0 or higher, making the pairing process much quicker for users. There’s also built-in Alexa for voice support and Spotify Tap playback for quick access to music and playlists.
With a price of £119/$119, these buds are quite an affordable option for those looking for ANC and decent waterproofing. You can currently buy them from John Lewis and Amazon in the UK, and Best Buy and Amazon in the US.
Alongside the Elite 4 Active buds, Jabra also announced that Bluetooth Multipoint will be coming to the Elite 7 Pro earphones, allowing users to connect two devices to the buds at the same time. It also revealed the PanaCast 20 personal camera for hybrid working and the Jabra Enhance Plus for people who need assistance with their hearing.
Samsung and LG had some big TV reveals at CES 2022, and we expect more tech news from the likes of Nvidia, AMD and Intel.
