Jabra introduced the Elite series of in-ear wireless earphones at CES 2018 – they can all talk to Siri, Cortana, Google Now and Alexa – in fact, any major digital assistant.
Jabra’s research shows that the daily usage of headphones by frequent users focuses on calls (58% of users each day), music (53%) and voice control (35%). The Elite series is engineered to meet the needs of these users looking not only for outstanding music quality but also for strong voice capability.
At CES, Jabra is showcasing three new products; Elite 45e, Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t.
Drawing on the GN Group’s long-standing audio, headset and hearing aid expertise, each new Elite product contains unique microphone configurations to ensure users will always be heard, whether you’re speaking to Alexa or your family and whether you’re indoors or out on the street. Also, the companion Jabra Sound+ app allows you to personalise your music to the sound that suits you.
