Jabra has expanded 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, now available in the UAE. 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.
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.
Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra, said, “Jabra’s Elite series has been well-received in the region thusfar, with innovations such as the Elite Sport true wireless earbuds. 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. These earphones provide the best of all worlds – stay-in-place Jabra EarGels™ innovation with an around-the-neck strap for comfortable fit, a 13-hour batter and professional-grade Active Noise Cancelling. We look forward to how this will be received, and hope to keep up the good Elite Sport name in the Middle East.”
