Due to their names, reputations, and market shares in other industries, companies like Samsung, Sony, OnePlus, and even Amazon tend to frequently join Apple in the spotlight when it comes to true wireless earbuds releases.
The Jabra Elite 3 are available today
At a recommended price of $79.99, these “noise-isolating” bad boys are obviously not designed to replace the aforementioned Active 75t, which normally go for $179.99 a pair, or directly target the likes of the hot new $150 Samsung Galaxy Buds 2
Instead, the Jabra Elite 3
are undoubtedly meant to eclipse the best cheap wireless earbuds
out there with a truly impressive list of features including everything from “rich and full bass” to a grand total of four microphones promising crystal clear calls, as well as powerful 6mm speakers, “class-leading” sound customization options, HearThrough technology, IP55 “rain” protection, and perhaps most importantly, a battery life of up to 28 hours.
That last number is naturally made possible by a formidable charging case nonetheless billed as “sleek” and “pocket-friendly”, but the earbuds themselves can keep your tunes going for an excellent 7 hours with no outside help.
Although Amazon lists the Elite 3 as equipped with active noise cancellation, that would simply be too good to be true considering all of the above, so as Jabra clarifies on its own official website, bargain hunters looking to spend just 80 bucks right now on these Echo Buds 2
rivals will need to settle for passive noise isolation technology.
Both the Elite 7 Pro and Elite 7 Active come with adjustable ANC
come” is probably a better way to put it, as Jabra’s two new active noise-cancelling AirPods Pro
and Galaxy Buds Pro
alternatives are not up for grabs yet. You’ll have to wait until October 1 if you’re interested in purchasing any of the two models, with the higher-end Pro version priced at $199.99 and the sportier Active product set to cost $20 less.
As you can imagine, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro
promise to deliver the “most cutting-edge call technology on the market”, as well as “rich and powerful” sound for an “incredible music experience.”
Of course, the Elite 7 Active
are also no pushovers, seemingly mimicking the adjustable active noise cancellation and HearThrough features of their slightly more expensive siblings while vowing to “boost your workout” with a top-shelf overall audio experience of their own.
In order to handle the most strenuous workouts, the Active-branded Elite 7 buds integrate a unique proprietary technology called ShakeGrip to achieve the “ultimate fit” in even the most challenging conditions and environments.
Focused more on (minimalistic) style and “revolutionary” call performance, the Elite 7 Pro
do not have this ShakeGrip thing going for them, rocking instead a different proprietary feature dubbed MultiSensor Voice to make sure you’ll hear and be heard flawlessly regardless of how much noise surrounds you at any given time.
Believe it or not, Jabra claims both the Elite 7 Active and Elite 7 Pro can go a whopping 9 hours between charges even with ANC enabled at all times, a number that goes all the way up to an AirPods
and AirPods Pro
-crushing 35 hours of endurance when also taking their bundled wireless charging
case into consideration.
