Jabra, the headset engineering brand of GN Group, has launched a new Elite 85t earbud set, plus an update for its Elite 75t series; an Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) chip is built into both ranges.

Dual chipset in the new Elite 85t earbuds promises strong ANC capability and optimal sound processing. The buds' many features include:

  • Compact design and oval silicon EarGels™ for a secure seal and comfortable fit
  • Dedicated ANC chip
  • 6-microphone call technology and wind protection
  • 12mm speakers for big sound and powerful bass
  • Up to 5.5 hours battery on a single charge and up to 25 with the charging case with ANC on, 7 hours battery on a single charge and 31 hours with ANC off Example 3
  • Example 3 Qi-certified, for wireless charging, and compatible with all Qi-certified chargers

"At Jabra we engineer products for purpose and today we are proud to show that our commitment to ANC is no exception. Users today are looking for great things in small packages, so we are thrilled to be offering our users best-in-class ANC in a very compact and sleek design," said Jabra CEO, René Svendsen-Tune.

We are also excited to take our current users on the ANC journey with us with a free upgrade to their existing Elite 75t products – leading the charge as the first global brand to execute this over-the-air update. For us, ANC now means ‘Accept No Compromise’!” announced Svendsen-Tune.

This update means the Jabra Elite 75t earbuds will come—from October onwards—with Jabra’s standard ANC solution, improving all call and audio listening, while the free upgrade for those already using the 75t earbuds is being made available to users through Jabra’s engineering on Qualcomm technology.

Jabra Elite 85t will be available in selected retailers from November 2020, MSRP (€229/$229). The earbuds will be available in Titanium/Black from November 2020, and Gold/Beige, Copper/Black, Black and Grey from January 2021.
