Newest addition to Elite franchise of headphones comes with both active and passive noise cancellation, ensuring an undisturbed sound experience
London, March 20th, 2018 – Jabra expands its Elite franchise, a family of headphones and earbuds engineered for superior sound to provide the best combined voice and music experience, with the Jabra Elite 65e. These neckband wireless earbuds are engineered for best-in-class wireless calls and music and provide two levels of noise cancellation including Jabra’s leading Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) solution, challenging existing solutions in the market. On top, the Jabra Elite 65e offers incredible conversation quality with three-microphone technology that creates a noise-blocking zone – making sure your voice is conveyed with crystal-clear clarity.
Standing on a noisy train platform? Walking through a busy high street? Cancel out the background sound with Jabra’s unrivalled total noise cancellation solution – with optimised engineering for both the active and passive noise cancellation.
Total noise cancellation solution
The first level consists of the development and design of the earbuds and Jabra EarGels™. The optimal engineering of the mechanical fit and the design of the oval earbuds – developed by Jabra to ensure a better fit in the ear canal – in combination with the eargels for a perfect grip, provide an optimal seal for the passive noise cancellation of ambient sounds. Extensively tested in our sound lab, the eargels help improve the quality of your listening experience – not only adding passive noise cancellation but also refining the bass in your music. You can listen to your music the way you want to hear it and the companion Jabra Sound+ app allows you to personalise your music to the sound that suits you.
The second level is the more known technology of Active Noise Cancellation that digitally removes additional noise levels. Having included ANC in professional headsets for years, Jabra now brings leading business grade ANC to consumers – providing superior total noise cancellation to the wider audience.
Best-in-class voice experience
Drawing on the GN Group’s long-standing audio, headset and hearing aid expertise, the Elite franchise is engineered to meet the needs of those users looking not only for outstanding music quality and voice capabilities, but also for consumers who are using voice assistants. Voice is increasingly becoming the tool of choice in the way we communicate with technology. With the Elite 65e you can instantly connect to Alexa, Siri® or Google Assistant™**, allowing you to quickly get the information you need – whether that be setting appointments, finding nearby events, or having your messages read back to you. Bluetooth 5.0 allows you to seamlessly connect the earbuds to a smartphone. The Jabra Elite 65e can be used all day, wherever you go, as it has a battery that lasts up to 8 hours when using ANC, and an incredible 13 hours with ANC tuned off. And the premium design means that you can comfortably wear Elite 65e for just as long as the battery life.
In addition to the best-in-class voice and music experience, the Jabra Elite 65e comes with the security of a two-year warranty against dust and water ingress and features an IP54-rated design.
Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra said: “The Jabra Elite 65e is perfect for the on-the-go user that wants noise blocked out, allowing great conversations and music. We are well-known for our noise cancellation capabilities in the enterprise scene, and it is this professional engineering that allows us to offer an unrivalled solution for consumers. The voice command capabilities and outstanding battery life, in combination with the comfortable fit, make the earbuds your best all-day, everyday companion.”
