Jabra Elite 4 Active headphones arrive with sporty ANC design and without wings


Danish company Jabra has introduced a new pair of sports headphones designed without the wing tips common to this particular genre of wearable clothing, giving active consumers a more minimalistic audio option. The Jabra Elite 4 Active True Wireless Headphones offer a number of features at a relatively low price, including Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).


The Jabra Elite 4 Active, as the name suggests, is designed for use in active situations, including while cycling or training. The ANC function filters out most ambient noise for a highly isolated audio experience, while the HearThrough mode allows external sounds to reach the user’s ears when needed for safety or convenience.

The mode supports Android and iOS with connectivity provided via Bluetooth 5.2. The model features an angular block design constructed with IP57 resistance against water, including sweat. Four built-in microphones allow users to make and take calls, while an included “special mesh” cover for the microphones reduces wind noise. The model contains 6mm drivers.

Users can expect up to 7 hours of use per battery charge, which increases to 28 hours when factoring in the charging case. The case supports fast charging, providing one hour of play time for 10 minutes of charging. The model supports the use of only one earbud, which means that one earbud can be used while the other is left in the case to charge. Other notable features include Spotify Tap, voice access to Alexa, and support for Google Fast Pair.


Although Jabra launched this model ahead of CES 2022, some details are still missing and it is expected that we will know more once the electronics fair kicks off. Currently, the Jabra Elite 4 Active is listed on the company’s UK website, Amazon UK, and Australian retailer JB Hi-Fi; however, they have yet to appear on the company’s U.S. website or Amazon, as well as other markets. The price sits at $ 179 in Australia, indicating how much consumers in other markets can expect to pay.

Jabra is a well-known and respected audio brand, but it’s not the only one offering premium headphones for people who enjoy listening to music and podcasts while working out. Beats, for example, has a pro model designed for users who are on the go often, as do other notable manufacturers and brands like Bose, Jaybird, and JBL.
