Jabra is introducing three sets of earbuds to its true wireless earbuds lineup. The Elite 7 Pro, Elite 7 Active, and Elite 3 are each designed to target the specific needs of different earbuds users.
Elite 7 Pro
The Elite 7 Pro boasts the new MultiSensor Voice technology, which is designed to ensure crystal clear call quality in most environments. The technology consists of four mics, a bone conduction sensor, and algorithms to aid in optimisation.
Of note is the bone conduction sensor, which, instead of being used for listening to audio, here it is used to transmit voice to whoever is on the other end of the call. These earbuds offer professional-grade audio with adjustable Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and are really meant for those who may be expected to work from anywhere, even when call quality is paramount.
To further support the idea of the earbuds being designed for the professional, Jabra is also promising nine hours of non-stop play time while having ANC enabled, with a total of 35 hours battery life when the charger case is taken into consideration as well. That is very impressive, especially when the earbuds are 16% smaller than the Elite 75t, the Elite 7 Pro’s predecessor.
The Elite 7 Pro comes in three colours – Titanium Black, Gold Beige, and Black.
Elite 7 Active
The Elite 7 Active is designed for people with an active lifestyle and want to have their earbuds on while exercising. Like the Elite 7 Pro, these earbuds have the same adjustable ANC, impressive battery life, four mics, and size improvement. The difference is that the Elite 7 Active doesn’t have the MultiSensor Voice technology.
Instead, Jabra calls the new technology at play here the ShakeGrip. The ShakeGrip technology consists of the liquid silicone rubber coating, and a shape that was decided on after 62,000 ear scans. This is because the Elite 7 Active is meant to be a snug, comfortable fit even when users move around a lot.
The liquid silicone rubber coating increases the in-ear friction, making sure that the earbuds will not loosen easily if at all. And while there is no true one-size-fits-all device when it comes to earbuds, Jabra believes that they have come very close to that with the 62,000 ear scans done during the design process.
The Elite 7 Active comes in three colours as well – Navy, Mint, and Black.
Both the Elite 7 Pro and Elite 7 Active have an IP57 rating, which means they are dust resistant and waterproof for up to 1 metre.
Jabra stated that the Elite 3 is the option designed for those who desire a high quality listening experience without needing the earbuds to be held up to professional-grade or rigorous exercising standards.
While the Elite 3 doesn’t have the ANC feature of the other two models, Jabra stated that it has excellent noise isolation. It also still has four mics, which means call quality isn’t fully compromised in the design of the earbuds. Not only that, the battery life, while a step down, is still robust, being able to last for seven hours and up to 28 hours with the charger case.
It is also able to give a bassier, punchier sound to improve the music-listening experience. For those who don’t like the more powerful bass, the sound quality can be customised through Jabra’s Sound+ app (which can be done on both the Elite 7 Pro and Elite 7 Active as well).
With an IP55 rating, the Elite 3 is dust and water resistant. It is shaping up to still be an outstanding pair of earbuds worthy of its place in Jabra’s true wireless earbuds lineup.
The Elite 3 comes in four colours – Dark Grey, Navy, Lilac, and Light Beige.
The Elite 7 Pro, priced at S$318, and Elite 7 Active, priced at S$268 will be available from 15 October 2021 onwards.
The Elite 3, priced at S$128, will be available from 8 September 2021 onwards.
