Unparalleled Toughness

Jabra is carving a niche in the realm of rugged earbuds with their latest addition, the Elite 8 Active. Designed not just for athletes but for anyone who leads an active lifestyle, these earbuds are crafted to endure pretty much everything life can throw at them.

Military-Grade Durability Testing

With a Military Standard 810H certification under its belt, the Elite 8 Active withstands an array of environmental conditions—from high humidity and temperature to torrential rain and extreme altitude. They’re watertight up to 1.5m, boasting an IP68 rating, which essentially means they’re immune to dust and water. The charging case isn’t far behind, coming in with an IP54 rating, making it dust and splashproof.

Highly Accelerated Corrosion Testing (HACT)

But Jabra didn’t stop there. The Elite 8 Active also successfully navigated the torturous Highly Accelerated Corrosion Testing. Here, the earbuds underwent 11 gruelling test cycles, which included 2-hour exposure to 40°C temperatures and 93% humidity, saltwater splash tests, and even 40°C heat drying tests. All these hoops successfully cement their anti-corrosion capabilities.

Introducing Jabra ShakeGrip

In addition to robustness, these earbuds feature Jabra’s proprietary ShakeGrip™ technology, ensuring that they stay put during even the most strenuous activities.

Premium Sound without Compromise

Dolby Audio Infused Sound

Durability doesn’t come at the expense of sound quality. Jabra’s Elite 8 Active delivers high-quality audio with Dolby Audio technology, ensuring a rich and immersive sound experience.

Adaptive ANC and Wind Neutralising Tech

The Adaptive Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) adjusts according to your surroundings, while the Wind Neutralising HearThrough™ technology eliminates wind noises without impeding your awareness of traffic or other crucial auditory cues.

Expect up to 8 hours of battery life, which jumps to 32 hours with the charging case in tow.

If you’re seeking an unparalleled audio experience, Jabra’s Elite 10 earbuds promise just that. They’re Jabra’s first-ever earbuds to support Dolby Head Tracking, keeping you at the centre of the sound stage as you move your head.

Intelligent ANC Technology

What sets these earbuds apart is their Advanced Active Noise Cancellation that uses infrasonic waves and intricate algorithms to automatically adjust the noise suppression based on your surroundings.

Designed for All-Day Comfort: Jabra ComfortFit Technology

Drawing from their extensive experience with the Elite 7 Pro and Elite 85t models, Jabra’s Elite 10 features their novel ComfortFit technology. Every surface that comes in contact with your ear is crafted from soft silicone, promising less fatigue and a more natural, airy fit.

Feature-Packed for Convenience
