CES 2022 is almost upon us, and on the center stage for Jabra is their Elite true wireless range.
Boost fitness resolutions with the Elite 4 Active
Ring in a new year, new you attitude, with the latest addition to the new Elite series, the Jabra Elite 4 Active. Designed for those who love an active lifestyle, including popular workouts like yoga, boxing or running, the Elite 4 Active brings the Elite Active range to a broader audience. It comes with a IP57 rating for dust protection and submersion in water for 30 minutes at 1 meter depth.
Jabra is not stranger to the sports oriented earbuds, and their athleisure design guarantees a unique, secure fit, designed to stay in while you work out.
To ensure maximum focus for the wearer, the Elite 4 Active blocks out noise at the gym with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). In addition to this, the immersive workout music experience is further enhanced via the customisable equaliser. These earbuds also include HearThrough for added awareness. Perfect for urban runs, so individuals can remain safe with an awareness of their surroundings when running.
To keep you moving, the Elite 4 Active has Alexa Built-in and Spotify Tap playback experience. The Spotify Tap playback allows for faster access to music. It also comes with Google Fast Pair, creating a seamless connecting experience to Android devices with instant pairing when switching on.
At AU$179, the earbuds offer a price conscious option for those who are looking for a true wireless solution that does not only support their active lifestyle, but offers great call quality to connect with friends and colleagues. Whilst providing a long battery life of up to 7 hours play-time (up to 28 with the charging case), the Elite 4 Active also boasts fast charge capabilities.
The Jabra Elite 4 Active comes with 4-microphone technology, protected by a special mesh covering for added wind noise protection, so you can be heard loud and clear on calls. Adding to a comfortable fit outside of sports, with a wing-free, ergonomic design.
Jabra also provides something for everyone, as these earbuds come in colour themes consistent with the existing Elite Active range; navy, black and light mint.
Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra said, “We all understand the importance of keeping fit and healthy, but working at your own pace is essential. The new Jabra Elite 4 Active offers a relatable alternative for those who love an active lifestyle but are not looking for the intensity of its more aspirational sister in this range, the Jabra Elite 7 Active. Again, Jabra steps up to offer something that’s just right for everyone’s own personal journey.”

Superior video collaboration in your pocket with the Jabra PanaCast 20

The product offers hybrid workers high-quality, secure video collaboration, no matter where they are, in a beautifully designed, compact, portable and easy-to-use package.
