Jabra at CES 2023

Jabra, a world leader in personal sound and office solutions, is showcasing its extensive true wireless range at CES 2023 with the latest additions to its Elite and Evolve series. The latest additions are Jabra Elite 5 and Jabra Evolve2 Buds.

The Jabra Elite 5 is the newest product to Jabra’s flagship Elite line-up, featuring Hybrid ANC and 6-mic call technology for powerful calls and music from anywhere. As for the Jabra Evolve2 Buds, they are the newest product in Jabra’s Evolve series, the earbuds are designed for flexible, hybrid and remote working.

Both products have been named honourees in the 2023 CES Innovation Awards under the audio and headphones category.

Jabra Elite 5: true wireless earbuds with Hybrid ANC   

The Jabra Elite 5 is the latest product in Jabra’s Elite range that features the new Hybrid ANC technology, powered by the Qualcomm QCC3050 Bluetooth chipset. The Hybrid ANC uses feedback microphones on the inside of the ear, and feedforward microphones on the outside. This makes the ANC less sensitive to the positioning in the ear, ensuring a more reliable noise cancellation across a wider range of frequencies.

This all-round hero is made for those needing to take calls from anywhere and is great for enjoying media during leisure. This is thanks to 6-microphone call technology with external mics that are constantly active, as well as internal mics that give your voice a helping hand when it’s windy outside.

Jabra Evolve2 Buds: pocketable earbuds for hybrid working

Designed to boost concentration and improve collaboration, the Evolve2 Buds are perfect for professionals working on the go. The true wireless buds are certified for leading virtual meeting platforms, including Microsoft Teams and Zoom, and use the latest technology to reduce disruptive background noise and enable clearer calls.

The Evolve2 Buds enable users to have high-quality conversations with Jabra MultiSensor Voice™, which uses a unique combination of four microphones, bone conduction sensors, and advanced algorithms to block out as much of the surrounding noise as possible.

Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra said, “We are delighted to be back in Las Vegas to showcase the newest products in our true wireless line-up. In the past year we have brought several unique additions to our offerings, with earbuds engineered for hybrid work. CES marks the start of yet another exciting year of innovation to come.”

Jabra launched Elite 85t powered by advanced ANC

Jabra recently launched Elite 85t, the latest addition to their family of true wireless earbuds series, in Singapore. The Jabra Elite 85t true wireless earbuds is powered by Jabra’s latest and most advanced Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) chip which silences background noise effectively.

From my coverage and review of Jabra true wireless earbuds series, the Elite Active 65t to Elite 75t, the Elite 85t brings great interest to the true wireless earbuds world with its advanced ANC feature. In my earlier article coverage, Jabra introduced free ANC upgrade for Jabra Elite 75t true wireless earbuds range. With the introduction of Elite 85t, users can feel and hear Jabra’s latest and most advanced ANC in action.

The ANC has a dedicated chip allowing users to control their ANC experience in five different levels to determine the ideal amount of background noise they would like to be blocked. At the same time, users can also control how much background sound they would like to hear while having the earbuds on by adjusting the HearThrough function within five levels.

The combination of Jabra’s ANC and HearThrough, their convenient and comfortable features are going to make it a great combination for users to control the transition between places with different background noises while having the earbuds on. For example, users can turn the HearThrough on when crossing a busy road to be aware of the dangers. They can also turn the ANC on when they want to focus on their work while at a café.

The Elite 85t true wireless earbuds has a new oval ear gels and semi-open design, specifically designed to provide enhanced comfort for users. The oval ear gels and semi-open design improve the seal on the ear when the earbuds are put on and follows the natural shape of the inside of the ear to make the fit comfortable. These new features let users enjoy their music and calls comfortably for extended periods of time.

Xuanling Lu, Jabra’s Regional Product Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific, said: “We are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to our award-winning Elite range of true wireless earbuds – now with Jabra’s most advanced ANC technology. The Elite 85t is a result of our dedication in listening to our customers’ needs for ANC in our earbuds. On top of delivering premium sound and call quality, the Elite 85t lets users determine their ideal ANC experience by letting them control the ANC within five levels.”

Jabra’s advanced ANC technology

The Jabra Elite 85t is powered by a dedicated ANC chip which lets it dedicate more processing power to noise cancellation. With the chip, the strengths of the noise cancellation and Jabra’s HearThrough functions, which lets users determine how much environmental sound they can hear while they have the earbuds on, can be adjusted in five levels. The difference between each level is approximately 3 decibels, which is the minimum sound level change that most users will be able to perceive.

Users can adjust the ANC and HearThrough levels on the Jabra Sound+ app.

The Elite 85t’s 6-mic technology also help to provide improved noise cancellation. The two microphones on the outside, which are called feedforward microphones, detect and cancel noise from outside the ear (e.g. voices, a moving train, rain). The microphone on the inside, which is called a feedback microphone, detect and cancel noise from inside the ear (e.g. excess noise that has made it past the feedforward microphones).

A more comfortable fit

The shape of the Elite 85t is based on Jabra’s fit simulation model made from thousands of ear scans and the vast database of ears from sister company GN Hearing. This allowed Jabra to squeeze in a lot of tech in the earbuds while maintaining its compact size and comfortable fit.

The 12mm speakers in the Elite 85t lets it produce a big sound and powerful bass while still providing comfort and relieving ear pressure with its new semi-open design. Jabra has also adapted the ear gels to an oval shape to provide a better sealing in the ear. This means that the tower of the Elite 85t does not sit as deeply within the ear, giving users a more comfortable earbud, while maintaining a very secure fit.

Key features and specifications

  • Compact design and oval silicon EarGels™ for a secure seal and comfortable fit
  • Dedicated ANC chip which is more efficient in removing surrounding noises
  • 6-microphone call technology and wind protection for superior calls wherever you are
  • 4-microphone ANC using mics on the inside and the outside of the earbuds
  • 12mm speakers for big sound and powerful bass
  • Semi-open design with natural hear through
  • Adjustable ANC with dual sliders from full ANC to full HearThrough
  • IPX4-rated durability and 2-year warranty* against dust and water
  • 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
  • Qi-certified, for wireless charging, and compatible with all Qi-certified chargers
  • Customisable equaliser in the Sound+ App makes your music sound even better
  • Voice assistant enabled. Elite 85t works with Alexa, Siri® and Google Assistant™.
  • ‘MyControls’ to define button settings and Jabra MySound for individualised sound

Pricing and Availability

Priced at $348, the Jabra Elite 85t will be available in Titanium Black from all authorised Jabra resellers from 19 November 2020 onwards. Gold Beige, Grey and Copper Black (Amazon exclusive) will be available in the first quarter of 2021.
