Jabra has just unveiled two new pairs of True Wireless Earbuds, both embedded with cutting-edge features and trendsetting technology. The Elite 8 Active has been deemed the world’s toughest earbuds* while the Elite 10 are Jabra’s most advanced earbuds yet. As a leader in personal sound and hybrid work solutions, Jabra has a knack for delivering top-of-the-line audio products so we’re feeling good about these! Whether you need top-notch earbuds to keep up with your active lifestyle or for business and personal use, the latest true wireless earbuds from Jabra are some hot contenders. 

Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra, said, “Jabra has been successful by identifying user needs and then applying our unique audio engineering capabilities to meet those needs. For Elite 10, we focused on comfort and calls and music performance to meet the need for all day use from music to meetings. For Elite 8 Active, we meet the need for users to be confident to use their earbuds, wherever they are, from work to work-out.” Let’s take a closer look at them!

Elite 8 Active - The world's toughest earbuds*

The latest addition to Jabra’s active range is the Elite 8 Active. These true wireless earbuds are designed to be incredibly durable with an unshakeable fit. Jabra ShakeGrip™ technology offers a secure fit in a wing-free, sleek design, meaning these are made to stay put even when you’re running, jumping, or skipping. They’re capable of taking a thrashing in many ways because they’re also durable and rugged.

The Elite 8 Active earbuds have surpassed the U.S Military Ruggedized Electronics Standard (810H), which involves a range of tests including exposure to high humidity, temperature extremes, and rain. They boast an IP68 rating, meaning they’re dustproof and waterproof up to 1.5m. The charging case, with an IP54 rating, is also dust and splashproof. Successfully enduring the Highly Accelerated Corrosion Testing (HACT), the earbuds also have proven anti-corrosion credentials. This test saw the earbuds passing 11 full cycles of testing, including enduring 2 hours in 40°C temperatures with 93% humidity, going through a 15-minute splash test in salt water, and surviving a 15-minute 40°C heat drying test.

Just because they’re tough, it doesn’t mean they sacrifice sound quality and aesthetics! Jabra Elite 8 Active are designed to amplify workouts with immersive sound, made possible by Dolby Audio, which provides clear, lifelike audio for extended and more enjoyable listening sessions. Adaptive Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) intelligently adjusts to your surroundings, optimising sound performance for every environment. These earbuds are also equipped with a 6-mic technology and wind-protecting mesh for pristine call clarity. Additional features include reliable smartwatch connectivity, Google Assistant, Fast Pair, Swift Pair, and Spotify Tap. With a battery life of up to 8 hours, extendable to 32 hours with the case, these earbuds effortlessly transition from work to workout, without compromising on any aspect - performance, design, or functionality.

Elite 10 - Jabra's most advanced earbuds

If you’re not necessarily after earbuds for an active lifestyle, the Elite 10 are a stellar pair of earbuds to consider. Jabra's top-of-the-line option presents the perfect synergy of comfort, sound performance, and call quality that’s perfect for both business and personal use. These earbuds stand at the forefront of immersive audio technology, incorporating Dolby Atmos optimisation and introducing Dolby Head Tracking for the first time in Jabra's product line. Dolby Head Tracking provides an immersive sound experience, placing listeners at the core of an evolving sound stage that responds to their head movements. Paired with Dolby Atmos content, this technology amplifies clarity and details for an unrivaled Dolby Atmos auditory experience.

Equipped with Jabra's Advanced Active Noise Cancellation, the Elite 10 smartly adjusts to your environment using infrasonic waves that measure the ear canal and algorithms which detect noise leakage and wind conditions. As a result, the earbuds will automatically switch to the highest ANC gain in noisier environments and reduce the gain in quiet places. Additionally, the Elite 10 has introduced Jabra ComfortFit technology to Jabra’s wireless earbuds range. This technology, coupled with a semi-open design that alleviates ear pressure, ensures a natural, comfortable fit. The surface touching the ear consists of soft silicon, significantly reducing wearing fatigue during all-day use while accommodating various ear shapes and sizes.

The Elite 10 earbuds also come with a 6-mic call technology that provides crystal-clear calls, a battery life of 6 hours extendable to 27 hours with the case, a compact charging cradle optimal for wireless charging, Bluetooth Multipoint connection, hands-free voice assistance, and easy pairing, truly enhancing the audio experience to the max.
