Jabra Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t, which have just won the CES Innovation Award 2018 is coming to Malaysia very soon. Looking at the pictures, these earphones (Jabra calls them earbuds) are so tiny and easy to carry around. Furthermore, having a wireless earphone saves you from the hassle of tangled wires too. Since the earphones are so tiny, is there a chance to misplace them? Well, if you place them into the cradle that is given together with the earphones, then it is unlikely for you to lose them. Another good thing about the cradle is, it has built-in battery which gives up to 15 hours of battery life to your Jabra Elite 65t / Elite Active 65t. On a single charge (without depending on the cradle), the earphones can last for up to 5 hours with continuous usage.
Speaking about the music and call quality, Jabra claims that the Elite 65t / Elite Active 65t delivers amazing quality, which is no doubt because from my experience, Jabra branded earphones are generally one of the best wireless earphones that I’ve used. So I assume these 2 new models will not disappoint you.
Next, the Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t can integrate with virtual assistants like Siri and Google Now……as well as Amazon Alexa (which is only available in US, UK and Germany ). So to those who uses Siri or Google Now a lot, you can ask questions without even taking out your phone.
What is the difference between the Jabra Elite 65t and Jabra Elite Active 65t? Basically the ‘Active’ version is more suitable for outdoor environment e.g. sports, gym etc. It is enhanced for sports use with a more secure fit through special coating. It even has an accelerometer built-in for which can be used for tracking related features (these features are accessible via the Jabra app). The Elite Active 65t is IP56 sweat, water and dust certified.
The Jabra Elite 65t will be available in Malaysia starting March this year. Price will be RM 799. The Jabra Elite Active 65t will be sold for RM 100 more and this version will be available starting May this year.
