Jabra Malaysia is kicking off the second half of 2019 in style, with new additions to its Elite and Move audio gear. Headlining its next-generation offerings is the Jabra Elite 85h active-noise-cancelling headphones; Jabra Elite Active 45e waterproof earbuds; and Jabra Move Style Edition , stylish ultra-light headphones.
The latest range combines Jabra’s expertise in sound and product engineering with artificial intelligence (AI).
Jabra Elite 85h
Whether you’re onboard an airplane, in your office or chilling in a cafe, there’s in increasingly prevalent health concern: noise overload. Based on a study by US-based UCI Health in 2018, an estimated one in five people under 20 years of age experience some sort of hearing loss due to noise pollution from modern sources.
The Jabra Elite 85h was engineered to keep distracting external noise out, so you can enjoy your music better. The headphones incorporate eight microphones that can identify over 6,000 external noise contexts like a packed train or quiet office boardroom.
You’ve got to hear it to believe it, and thanks to Jabra SmartSoundm Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and HearThrough technology, the headphones adapt audio output and delivers optical audio experience across diverse environments. This is possible through Jabra’s partnership with aduEERING, the world leader in AI-based audio analysis, and its context intelligence technology.
The Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose QuietComfort QC35 II are the reigning class leaders in the premium ANC headphones segment, but the Elite 85h might just rattle the throne.
One aspect where the Elite 85h trumps the Sony and Bose is battery life. The Elite 85h sets a new standard in battery life, delivering up to 41 hours (without ANC) and 36 hours with ANC on.
The headphones are also IP52-certified, meaning it offers rain resistant durability and comes with two years’ warranty against water and dust damage.
There’s one-touch connection to Alexa, Siri and Google Assistant.
With Jabra’s Sound+ app, you can customise and personalise your audio experience with the Elite 85h.

Coming in Titanium Black, Gold Biege and Navy, the Move Style Edition now offers 14 hours of battery life, a solid six hours more than its predecessor.
Jabra Elite Active 45e
For sports lovers, the Elite Active 45e offers IP67-certified waterproofing and a two-year warranty against dust and sweat.
