Jabra now shipping Elite 85h headphones
The Elite 85H will have SmartSound technology: AI for adaptive sound environments
Jabra is now shipping the newest addition to their Elite range of headsets: the Elite 85h headphones.
The new headphones are engineered with Jabra SmartSound, based on audEERING context intelligence technology and include Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and Jabra's HearThrough technology, which enables users to decide how much of the outside world penetrates through to the listener.
Whether you are commuting, need to concentrate or are in a crowded place, SmartSound ensures the audio of the Elite 85h automatically adjusts to your surroundings to offer the best calls and music experience.
The Elite 85h headphones has a 36-hour battery life (with ANC activated), sound with advanced 6-microphone call technology and 40mm custom-engineered speakers.
Jabra's SmartSound technology tackles noise pollution in a way like never before. Jabra has an exclusive part ownership of intelligent audio analysis company audEERING, the world leader in audio AI technology.
The relationship allows Jabra to include environmental adaptation into the new Elite 85h headphones, creating a personalized audio experience that goes beyond current Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) solutions available in the market.
Jabra SmartSound is based on audEERING's context intelligence technology, which uses real-time acoustic scene analysis of environmental sounds. The technology can detect more than 6,000 unique sound characteristics and uses this to adapt audio output to each specific context.
This means that when moving from a noisy train station into a quiet train carriage, the context intelligence technology will take notice and will automatically adjust the audio to the changed surroundings. It will select one of the three moments: ‘Commute', ‘In Public' or ‘In Private' to guarantee a consistent quality for your audio experience. Users can personalize their calls and music settings even further through Jabra's Sound+ app, which will remember your preferred settings within the mode for future similar situations.
Dagmar Schuller, CEO at audEERING said: "audEERING's AI based audio context intelligence technology empowers the new Elite 85h headphones by Jabra to deliver the best call and music experience on the market. Users can be sure to get the most sophisticated product there is with reliable and innovative AI technology made in Germany."
The microphone solution combined with the Jabra Sound+ app creates a quick Voice Assistant access experience. Users only need to touch a button on the headphones to interact with Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant.
René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra said: "One of the biggest challenges for people on-the-go is consistency in voice, call and audio quality in every environment, whilst ensuring the best voice interaction and connectivity that allows for either total concentration or relaxation. Our Elite range represents the best-in-class products for calls and music. We developed SmartSound, to ensure we can continue to deliver quality calls and music experience wherever you are. The Elite 85h is a revolutionary headset that will change the way we experience sound and cope with noise in the future."
