Jabra Upgrades Elite Earbuds with ANC Improvement, LE Audio Case, and More

Read Time:3 Minute, 24 Second

With the release of the second-generation Elite 10 and Elite 8 Active models, Jabra has rapidly improved its portfolio of Elite earphones. These latest versions have the same outward design, but they have significant improvements in noise cancellation, audio features, spatial sound, and other areas.

LE Audio Smart Case: A Groundbreaking Attachment

A prominent improvement over the Elite 10 and Elite 8 Active is the inclusion of what Jabra refers to as “the world’s first LE Audio smart case.” With the use of this creative case, customers may connect the charging case to any USB-C or 3.5mm socket to provide wireless audio to their earbuds. This capability is especially helpful for TVs, exercise equipment, and in-flight entertainment systems, among other gadgets. The cases are outfitted with a novel technology that aims to reduce latency in LE Audio transmission, providing better sound quality—including Hi-Fi playback—than alternatives found on the market.

Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) Upgraded

The new Elite 10 and Elite 8 Active devices from Jabra have far better active noise cancellation (ANC) features. It is stated that the upgraded earbuds may block “up to twice as much noise” as the original models. By optimizing the internal feedback microphones to more effectively filter mid- and low-frequency noises, this improvement is made possible. Furthermore, new ANC algorithms make better use of adaptable capabilities, which helps the earbuds manage noise from places like gyms and aircraft.

Advanced Mode for Hearing

A significant update has also been made to the HearThrough mode, which lets ambient sound flow through the earphones. According to Jabra, the new Elite 10 and Elite 8 Active include a dedicated Natural HearThrough mode that improves outdoor sound quality and reduces wind noise twice as well as the previous model. Algorithms that increase the typical HearThrough mode’s frequency range enable this enhancement.

Better Call Quality and Spatial Sound

Jabra has worked on enhancing the audio experience with enhanced spatial sound tuning for both the Elite 10 and Elite 8 Active. 95% of Jabra’s “expert panel” who participated in the testing said they liked the new audio profile over the old one. also the Elite 8 Active and the Elite 10, which also gain from the improved tuning, now have Dolby Audio and Dolby Atmos with head tracking. New noise-reduction algorithms have also improved the call quality, guaranteeing clearer speech recognition even in busy settings.

Maintained Features and Runtime

Many important elements from the previous generations have been kept, even if there have been many updates. The Elite 10 retains an IP57 rating (case unrated), and the Elite 8 Active is still rated IP68 (with the case certified IP54). The Elite 8 Active and Elite 10 both have strong battery lives, with the former giving up to eight hours of noise-canceling playback (32 hours total with the case) and six hours of use with ANC turned on (27 hours total with the case). Fast Pair, Swift Pair, Spotify Tap, and Bluetooth multipoint connection are supported by both models. Additionally, the Elite 10 may still establish direct connections with smartwatches that are compatible with AVRCP, A2DP, and HFP Bluetooth profiles.

Cost and Availability

For $279, the second-generation Elite 10 will be offered in brown, blue, white, titanium black, and gloss black. At $299, the Elite 8 Active (2nd gen) will be available in olive green, black, coral, and navy. These costs represent a $29 rise over the initial iterations that were made available last year. Mid-June is when both of the updated versions are expected to go on sale.

The company’s dedication to quality and innovation is shown in Jabra’s improvements to the Elite 10 and Elite 8 Active earphones. These second-generation models provide existing and potential customers with a compelling upgrade thanks to the addition of the LE Audio smart casing, better ANC, advanced HearThrough mode, and increased spatial sound and call quality. Jabra’s Elite earbuds are still a top option for anyone looking for high-performance audio solutions because of the additional capabilities added to its predecessors’ strengths.
