Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds with Alexa are Available Exclusive at Best Buy

Jabra announced at CES 2018 wireless earbuds with voice assistant integration.

At CES 2018, Jabra unveiled the Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t, the company's third generation of true wireless earbuds, built for a consistently stable wireless connection and up to 15 hours of battery life (with cradle). The Jabra Elite 65t is available for pre-order on BestBuy.com and available exclusively at Best Buy in February for $169.99. The MSRP for the Elite Active 65t is $189.99.

Best Buy has though no exact shipping date for the Jabra Elite 65t and also is not offering the Active 65t version yet. The Jabra Elite 65t are a valid alternative to the Apple AirPods with a design that is less goofy and Alexa integration. For those who prefer using voice commands, the new products allow voice support for all major voice services, now including Amazon Alexa on-the-go. Jabra is among the first movers to enable this mobile feature, providing customers with access to Alexa directly from the earbuds. With Alexa, users can ask to play music, hear the news, check the weather, control smart home devices, and much more.

"With Jabra's earbuds and Alexa, customers can ask Alexa thousands of things while on-the-go," said Pete Thompson, Vice President, Amazon Alexa. "Customers can find and play music while on a run, check the news on their commute, manage their to-do list, and more, simply by asking Alexa."

Building on the success of the Jabra Elite Sport the new devices are engineered to deliver an better voice and music experience and come with new design and color choices.

Engineered for superior sound, the Elite 65t brings together unique technology features to deliver best-in-class quality for voice and music. It is built to ensure a stable wireless connection and deliver the best call and command (voice) quality. The innovative four-microphone solution, combined with an optimized acoustic chamber, enables advanced noise suppression and voice enhancement for every type of environment. The earbuds also allow music to be personalized using a music equalizer accessed from the Jabra Sound+ companion application.

The Jabra Elite 65t combines a lightweight design for long-term comfort with up to 15 hours of battery life (five hours initial and an extra 10 from the charging cradle), making the earbuds the perfect everyday solution. Elite 65t will be available in 'Titanium Black,' 'Copper Black' and 'Gold Beige' color versions.

The Jabra Elite Active 65t is aimed at those who want the features of the Elite 65t, but whose priority is being able to use the earbuds in an active environment. The earbuds are fully enhanced for sports use with a more secure fit (through a special coating), an integrated accelerometer for tracking activity in the Jabra app, and IP56 sweat, water and dust certification. The Elite Active 65t has five hours of listening time on one charge and 10 additional hours from the charging cradle. The device has a two-year warranty against sweat and dust. Elite Active 65t will be available in 'Copper Blue' and 'Copper Red' colors.

"Our third-generation earbuds are testament to our industry-leading engineering capabilities, stemming from our GN Group heritage, for both daily on-the-go and sports use. This is a whole new range of superior sound products based on our vast knowledge and customer feedback from earlier true wireless generations," said René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra. "The Jabra Elite 65t has unique microphone positioning that ensures the best voice and music interactions on the market, as well as signature sound, voice capabilities and interaction support. It is already a category leader, having been named a CES 2018 Innovation Award honoree." Find out more on BestBuy.com.
