If you’re already struggling to maintain your January fitness, Jabra just gave you a helping hand – in the form of its new Elite 4 Active wireless headphones. The new buds have just been announced at CES 2022.
Priced at just $ 119 in the US and £ 119 in the UK and offering active noise cancellation as well as training-friendly features like IP57 water resistance, it seems like a great addition. to what is already enviable – albeit more and more complicated – the Jabra range.
Based on price and specs, the Elite 4 Active will fall below the $ 179 Jabra Elite Active 75t – # 1 on our list of best wireless headphones – and the recently released Jabra Elite 7 Active ($ 179 ), and well above the far more basic Elite 3 ($ 79.99).
A quick glance at the specs shows that the Elite 4 Active has almost everything we would want in a pair of true wireless headphones. For starters, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) is an unusual feature to get at this price point, and it’s worth noting that in this regard, it exceeds the 75t, which only has passive noise cancellation.
Battery life of up to 7 hours (28 with the charging case) also puts the Elite 4 Active slightly ahead of the 75t, although just behind the Elite 7 Active by 8 hours, while a charge Quick will give you an hour of juice in a mere 10 minutes. We’re also impressed that it comes with Google Fast Pair for instant connection to Android devices, as well as Spotify Tap playback for quick access to your songs.
the Jabra Elite 4 Active is available now in three colors – navy, black and light mint – and we’ll be revising it very soon; stay tuned to see if Jabra has found another winner. Check out our CES 2022 live blog for all of the biggest product announcements from the show.
