(The Gear Loop) - Jabra has announced that it is to expand its Elite range of running and fitness-focussed true wireless headphones with the introduction of a more affordable Elite 4 Active model.

These join the Elite 7 Active - the flagship buds we have already rated for their snug fit and great sweat resistance - as well as the more entry level Elite 3.

The latest product in Jabra’s true wireless range has been designed with for heavy usage in mind and as such comes with an IP57-rated water and sweat proof durability, which has been tested to the point of temporary submersion in water and is dust protected, so should withstand even the worst winter runs and muckiest trails.

The latest additions to the Elite family come packed with plenty of premium features, such as a seven hour battery life and fast charge capabilities, as well the ability to make and receive calls with a paired smartphone.

Pinching tech from its more expensive Elite 7 Active sibling, the 4 Active also features Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which is great for blocking out noisy gym environments, as well as HearThrough technology that allows ambient sound to enter for better awareness of surroundings, such as when running out in busy areas.

The overall design is neat and compact, with a familiar rubber coating adding extra protection from the elements and improved grip. The buds themselves are free of any additional wings or ear loops, with Jabra claiming the ergonomic shape is enough to keep them in the ears during intense bouts of exercise.

Alexa Built-in and Spotify Tap playback are also supported, as is Google Fast Pair. The addition of Bluetooth 5.2 also means they will pair effortlessly to most compatible devices and can be up to 10m from the music, podcast or audio book source before cutting out.

The headphones are available to buy now.
