On this occasion, where they did want to "innovate" these Jabra is precisely in the range of colors, where in addition to the classic black and light gold, we will be able to access a version in navy blue and another in quite light purple. eye-catching. ANDThe model analyzed in our case is black, which includes in the package: Six silicone ear cushions (counting those already attached to the earbuds), the charging case, the USB-C cable, and the earbuds.

Technical characteristics

In line with the aforementioned, it has four MEMS microphones that help us maintain clear conversations, something common also in Jabra. The bandwidth of the microphones is between 100 Hz and 8 kHz, as we have seen in the details regarding the bandwidth of telephone calls.

Autonomy and opinion after use

Jabra has provided us with reliable data regarding the mAh of the battery, something common in the brand, however They predict 7 hours of autonomy with a charge and up to 28 hours if we include the charges made with the case. The firm also promises us that with just ten minutes of charging we will get approximately one hour of use. These data are reproduced almost entirely in our tests, especially considering that they lack active noise cancellation (ANC) and as long as we do not use the HearThrough mode already available in almost all Jabra devices of different ranges.
