Jabra’s answer to the Apple AirPods is now available for pre-order

Jabra‘s got a brand new pair of wireless earbuds called the Jabra Elite 65t and you can pre-order them right now. But, unlike normal pre-orders, the company is actually encouraging you to give them a try out first before placing your pre-orders.

The Elite 65t is designed to be an improved version of the company’s previous truly wireless earbuds, the Elite Sport, especially when it comes to the vocal experience in calls and music. This is supposed to mean that it’ll deliver superior audio quality.

That’s great because despite this improvement in audio quality, the Elite 65t is actually more affordable than the Elite Sport when it launched last year. However, this cost saving comes at a price — the Elite 65t doesn’t have fitness tracking capabilities as it lacks a heart-rate monitor.

Still, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing especially if what you’re looking for is just a pair of truly wireless in-ear headphones for music and calls. The Elite 65t features a “four microphone solution” with an “optimised acoustic chamber” which enables “noise suppression” and “voice enhancement” for a variety of different environments. Sounds like a good set of features.

Battery life is rated at up 5 hours per charge of the earbuds with the case capable of topping things up to a claimed listening time of up to 15 hours.

As good as all these specs sound, the most crucial thing with in-ear headphones is the fit and if you’re like me, it’s not easy to find one that will fit your ears. That’s why I think it’s great that Jabra will let you test them out first at major retailers like All IT Hypermart (IPC Shopping Centre, Digital Mall, Suria KLCC) and Harvey Norman (IPC Shopping Centre, Sunway Pyramid, Pavilion) before placing your order.
