True Wireless Jabra Elite 8 Active, “the most resistant in the world”

Jabra presents its latest True Wireless Elite 8 Active headphones, with active noise reduction and unique fit in the ears. The “most resistant headphones in the world” according to its creator.

The Jabra Elite 8 Active wireless headphones are equipped with proprietary Jabra ShakeGrip technology, i.e. unique oval EarGels tips (meaning asymmetrical shape) which perfectly fit the shape of any ear pinna, thanks to the preliminary analysis of the morphology of 62,000 ears (yes, yes!). Equipped with a liquid silicone rubber coating which keeps the headphones in place in the ears, without even the help of fins, the brand specifies that, even when abused by hectic sporting activities (Trek for example), they stay perfectly in place.

The Jabra Elite 8 Active Bluetooth 5.3 LE headphones feature 6mm drivers for powerful sound, coupled with Dolby Atmos spatial rendering. In addition, the Jabra Elite 8 Active features active noise cancellation called Adaptive Hybrid ANC that is up to 1.6 times more efficient than standard Jabra ANC. For its part, the Hear function allows you to hear surrounding noises to prevent danger, for example (in the street). The clarity of audio calls is ensured via the presence of six microphones capable of distinguishing voice from background noise. Of course, active noise reduction is automatically applied during calls for maximum voice clarity.
