Jabra is shipping the latest addition to the Elite Active range, the Elite Active 45e, a set of sports earbuds that it announced at CES 2019. These waterproof earbuds provide an improved earhook design that not only promises a secure fit but also ensures long-term wearing comfort. Up to nine hours battery life gives users the ability to do a week’s worth of workouts on a single charge. This is one of the strongest wireless sports headsets in the below £100 category.

The Jabra Elite Active 45e earbuds are engineered for wireless music, calls and sport. Whether going for a run, cycle ride or your favourite exercise in the gym, they allow you to enjoy the audio quality of Jabra wireless, with earbuds designed to stay secure and comfortable thanks to Earhooks and Earwings that hold firm. The earbuds are the perfect outdoor fitness buddies as you can stay aware of your surroundings, thanks to an open-ear design that lets ambient sound in. Having awareness of your surroundings while running outdoors is a highly requested safety feature for many users.

With the Elite Active 45e, you can instantly connect to Alexa*, Siri® or Google Assistant™, empowering you to get many things done quickly with voice commands, including setting appointments, finding nearby events, or having your messages read to you. The earbuds’ two-microphone technology gives you effective noise reduction on calls that ensure conversations are incredibly clear, and advanced 12mm speakers that offer a richer, more powerful audio experience.

With up to nine hours of battery life on a single charge, the earbuds power a week’s worth of workouts, keeping the music playing and the calls answered. They also have a 15-minute fast-charge feature for those times when you really need an extra hour.

The Jabra Sound+ app allows you to customise your music profiles, choose your voice assistant, track battery use and more – giving the best personalisation during your workout.

Calum MacDougall, SVP at Jabra said: “These new sports earbuds are engineered for those who want a comfortable and secure fit whilst exercising.
