Jarba Debuts Revo Wireless & Wired Headphones

Jabra is most known for its Bluetooth headsets and speakerphones, and today it has announced its new line of wired and wireless stereo on-ear headphones including a pair of in-ears for good measure. Jabra's Revo and Revo Wireless Bluetooth headphones both emphasis on durability and portability with a collapsible aluminum frame construction, steel hinges and a shatter-proof flexible headband. The Revo and Revo Wireless feature Dolby Digital Plus audio processing technology said to provide enhanced rich, full-spectrum sound.

The latest suite of stereo headphones will excite and impress pop and rock enthusiasts who want massive, high-definition sound clarity as well as serious jazz and classical audiophiles looking to take their favorite recordings to another level of performance and sophistication.

What sets the Revo Wireless apart from its corded sibling are the on-cup call and music playback controls using a "turntable touch control" surface and NFC integration for easy tap-to-pair. On the corded model, you'll have a fully featured 3-button remote and mic.

The small but tough Jabra Vox in-ear headphones are also built from premium materials, feature Dolby Digital Plus audio processing, come with tangle-free reinforced cables with in-line controls and mic, and are thoroughly tested for ultimate durability and performance. Jabra hasn't released any pricing details as of yet, but we know that its new line of headphones will be available in Q2.

JayBird Freedom Sprint JF4 Wireless In-Ear Headphones, Fitness-Proof

JayBird has released a revamped version of its JF3 Freedom buds we reviewed late last year dubbed the JF4 Freedom Sprint. The new and improved Freedom Sprint is a sweat-resistant, wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones with headset functionality that is nearly identical to its predecessor, albeit redesigned to be 40% smaller with a number of minor enhancements. JayBird taunts that it has improved every aspect with the Sprint like a softer tangle-free cable, smaller micro-USB port for charging, hidden notification LED, repositioned top-facing multi-function button for easier reach, enhanced mic for clearer voice conversations and emphasized warm, thumping bass without the fatiguing. Not the most impressive improvements might we add. We do like the new matte black finish compared to the glossy, fingerprint magnet original Freedom.

What hasn't improved is battery life. The Freedom Sprint's battery performance is reduced down to 4.5 hours of battery life from the 6 hours of the original Freedom headset due to the weight loss. JayBird's Freedom Sprint also feature the same secure fit ear cushions and isolating tips for better secure in-ear comfort no matter how hard you push yourself, and are now available for $129.
