#IFA2017 – Wireless headphones seem to be the trend at IFA this year, and the folks at Jabra are certainly helping it along as the company has recently announced the Jabra Elite 25e. As you can see in the photo above, these are “true” wireless headphones unlike the Beoplay E8, but rather they are also known as “neckbuds”.
However they are wireless and the cable only serves to sit around the back of the user’s neck, which might be a more preferred setup for those who want to use it for more vigorous activities and don’t want to risk the earbuds falling out and losing them. According to Jabra, the company is boasting a very impressive battery life for the Elite 25e at 18 hours of use. Of course whether or not you’ll be able to get those numbers remains to be seen.
They are also IP54 certified meaning that they are water-resistant to a certain degree, so using them while you workout should not pose a problem. There is also a dedicated voice control button that lets users activate Siri or Google Assistant, and also switch between calls, read messages, control music playback, and so on.
The best part is that they’re not particularly expensive either at $79. They will be made available early October so do keep an eye out for their availability if you are interested.
