Jabra isn’t focusing so much on new products at CES 2024 as the company is on significant upgrades for popular existing ones. This includes the Elite 8 Active and Elite 10 true wireless earbuds, which are being updated with new noise suppression algorithms for more powerful ANC, clearer calls, and better awareness of your surroundings with HearThrough.
The initial updates, which will be available in January, will include an easy-to-use on/off toggle for Adaptive Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), HearThrough, and Sidetone features, as well as new voice tone prompts. This enables enhanced interaction so you can tailor the earbuds to your individual preferences. Additionally, you will be able to customize the device name of the earbuds, a nice little personal touch.
By March, there are new features coming to the Elite 10. There will be improved call clarity for noisy environments like offices, restaurants, and busy streets. Jabra’s latest noise suppression algorithms are designed to identify and diminish background voices, says the company, to help ensure uninterrupted conversations.
Jabra’s improvements on the Adaptive ANC on Elite 8 Active paired with HearThrough will be more effective in windy conditions, says the company, thanks to upgraded wind noise detection technology.
“Our commitment to our customers is unwavering,” says Ehtisham Rabbani, Head of Consumer Products at Jabra. “We actively listen to market feedback, which fuels our drive to continuously enhance user experiences. We deliver ongoing improvements throughout the lifespan of our products, so that our users always experience the best of Jabra.”
These updates will be available in two waves, the first in January 2024 and the second in March 2024. Updates are via the Sound+ app, and will be available over-the-air to all users, existing and new, at no cost.
