New Jabra Elite 4 Active with enhanced sweat resistance

Jabra Elite 4 Active wireless earbuds are a logical development of the Jabra Elite 3, which was released at the end of last summer. Retaining the recognizable design, Jabra Elite 4 Active enhanced the capabilities of its predecessor. First of all, these earbuds got active noise cancellation, and the mode “HearThrough” for hearing external sounds remained in place.

The novelty still gets a good reserve of autonomy: Elite 4 Active will work for the same 7 hours on a single charge. The earbuds can then be fully charged three times in the rechargeable case. In total, it turned out more than a day – however, wireless charging is not supported in the Elite 4 Active.


IP57 standard

In addition, the Elite 4 Actives are better protected – their water resistance meets the IP57 standard. The settings are still available in the Jabra Sound+ app, as well as communication with the voice assistant. Jabra plans to show the headphones at the upcoming CES 2022, although the headphones have already been seen on sale.

The Jabra Elite 4 Active is already available in the UK for £120.
