Jabra has released new TWS earbuds, the Elite 4. They’ve added $20 to the price compared to their predecessor (the Elite 3 cost $79.99), but they’ve also received a technical upgrade.
Two significant innovations can be singled out. The first is a system of active noise cancellation. The second is the technology of simultaneous connection to several sound sources. Thanks to the latter, it is much more comfortable to switch between different devices to listen to music or answer a call. Jabra also added support for Microsoft Swift Pair technology to quickly connect the earbuds to Windows computers (plus there is support for Google Fast Pair, just like its predecessor).
The rest of the features remained almost unchanged. Elite 4 are equipped with 6 mm drivers, and also offer similar battery life as Elite 3 – up to 7 hours of operation from one charge and up to 28 hours, taking into account recharging in the case. However, with the ANC system on, the figures drop slightly — up to 5.5 hours of battery life and up to 22 hours including the case. Also, the earbuds have four microphones and have IP55 moisture protection. There is support for aptX and SBC codecs, as well as voice assistants Siri and Google Assistant.
Jabra Elite 4 are offered in four colors: gray, navy, lilac and beige. The cost is $99.99.
