Jabra Rejiggers Its Lineup of Full Wireless Earbuds, Adds Alexa, Lowers Price Points
Jabra today announced two additions to its range of fully wireless earbuds, the Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t. The earbuds take the basic approach set by the high-end Jabra Elite Sport and break apart the features into two separate products. Importantly, they add support for Amazon's Alexa, something few other headphones offer at the moment. Both devices share similar design and build, with a new shape for better in-ear fit and new materials for added comfort. The Elite 65t is for those who want the best possible sound for calls and music, but don't need fitness functionality. For example, it has a four-microphone array and hardened wireless performance for call clarity. The Active 65t is aimed at those who may use the device during fitness activities. It has special coatings that provide IP56 certification against sweat and rain. An accelerometer helps people track workouts. Both the Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t offer 5 hours of listening per charge, and the included charging cradle produces up to two additional charges making for a total of 15 hours. The Jabra Elite 65t series will be available for pre-order on BestBuy.com on January 8 and in stores by February. The 65t is priced at $170 and the Active 65t is priced at $190.
The Elite Active 65t are part of Jabra's third generation of fully wireless Bluetooth headphones. The Active 65t focus on providing a solid music experience while also supporting your lightweight workouts.
Jabra has refreshed its Elite Sport wireless Bluetooth earbuds with improvements to battery life and sound quality. Like the originals, the new Jabra Elite Sport are aimed at fitness-minded people thanks to fancy tools such as a heart rate monitor and in-ear coaching.
