Headset maker Jabra, a subsidiary company of the GN Group, announced a newly-upgraded version of its Elite Sport hearable device.
Like the original version, the Elite Sport earbuds come fully equipped with a heart rate monitor, music/stereo streaming, in-ear audio coaching with real time feedback, and streaming capability. Aside from the upgraded battery life, software enhancements and an updated app help improve user experience.
“While design aesthetics and features are crucial, we also appreciate that to most users battery is ‘king’. All the features in the world can be meaningless if your battery unexpectedly runs out on you. This is true for most electronics products, such as mobile phones and laptops – and certainly also your headphones. With this upgrade of Elite Sport, Jabra has taken a significant step in boosting battery experience in the true wireless category.” —Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra
According to the company’s press release, the upgraded battery life on the devices was achieved “without adding to the weight or depth of the earphones themselves.”
