CES 2018: Everything Announced By Jabra

With last year’s second-gen Elite Sport true wireless earbuds acting as a solid refinement, 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Jabra. It all starts at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. Usually a playground for sin and vice, the week-long consumer technology mecca sees Vegas become a playground for gadgets, gizmos and everything in-between.

Here’s what Jabra brought to this year’s CES:

Jabra Elite 65t

What is it?

The Jabra’s third-generation true wireless earbuds. This time, Jabra are pitching themselves less at fitness-junkies and more at the professional, office-working, business customers Jabra has successfully courted in the past.

What’s exciting about it?

The 65t includes one-touch access to Siri, and Google Now and Amazon Alexa on-the-go and touts up to 15 hours of battery life (five hours per charge, with two full recharges held by the case).

When will it be available?

March 2018.

How much will it cost?

No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

Has Australian availability been confirmed yet?

The Jabra Elite 65t will be available in Australia and New Zealand from March.

Jabra Elite Active 65t

What is it?

The Elite Active 65t offers up the same 15 hour battery life but tilts the experience towards the kind of fitness-focused customers that Jabra impressed with the Elite Sport earbuds.

What’s exciting about it?

The new earbuds feature enhanced grip, through special coating, an integrated accelerometer for tracking features and IP56 sweat, water and dust certification.

How much will it cost?

No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

Has Australian availability been confirmed yet?

The Jabra Elite Active 65t will be available in Australia and New Zealand in mid-2018.     


Jabra Elite 45e

What is it?

A set of wireless earbuds linked together by a soft neck-band. Though this means it isn’t quite as true-wireless as the others, Jabra insist the Elite 45e still uses the same core tech powering their third-gen Elite 65t and second-gen Elite Sport earbuds.

What’s exciting about it?

Jabra say the new Elite 45e comes engineered to deliver the best voice and music experience for users who want high audio quality without compromising on design and form-factor.

In addition, Jabra say it boasts a unique box microphone solution that delivers the clearest voice communication on any stereo wireless headphone.

When will it be available?

Mid-2018.

How much will it cost?

No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

Has Australian availability been confirmed yet?

The Jabra Elite Active 45e will be available in Australia and New Zealand in mid-2018.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
