2. Jabra Elite Active 65t for those who want the same superior sound and connectivity as Elite 65t, with the added features, durability and fit of a sports product – IP56 certification, special coating for better grip and accelerometer for tracking.
3. Jabra Elite Sport – the existing product for ultimate training and biometric enhancement features and even higher durability (IP67) and 3 year warranty against sweat.

The Jabra Elite 65t combines a lightweight design for long-term comfort with up to 15 hours of battery life with the cradle and five hours of listening time in one charge making the earbuds the perfect everyday solution. Elite 65t will be available in lead color Black/Gunmetal and also in Black/Copper and Light/Neutral 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 special coating, integrated accelerometer for tracking features 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 two-year warranty against sweat and dust. Elite Active 65t will be available in Navy/Copper color.
“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.
