On the off chance that you’re participating in an extreme triathlon or have one heck of a hazardous commute in Malaysia , you’ll appreciate what the newly launched Jabra Elite 8 Active earbuds have to offer as they’re claimed to be the world’s toughest earbuds at this point in time .

What are the Jabra Elite 8 Active earbuds?

To wit, the Jabra Elite 8 Active are arguably the toughest wireless earbuds in production. According to Jabra, the Elite 8 Active has survived all extremes of temperature and extreme altitudes as they are built to MIL-STD-810H levels of durability while also packing an IP68 dust and water resistance rating which means they are able to shrug off fresh water immersion like that in a swimming pool up to 1.5 metres deep for up to 30 minutes. They’re also rated to be drop resistant for up to a metre.

The provided charging case in most competing earbuds typically isn’t as well protected but Jabra isn’t leaving anything to chance and even the case itself has an IP54 dust and splashproof resistance rating in the off chance you encounter an impromptu shower of rain or a spilled cup of coffee.

Just to add extra icing on the cake, Jabra has also put the earbuds through the proverbial meat grinder in a Highly Accelerated Corrosion Testing (HACT) regime that has it go through 11 gruelling cycles of tests that include a 15 minute splash test in salt water, two hours in 40°C temperatures with 93% humidity and more.

Fortunately, the Jabra Elite 8 Active has all the acoustic capabilities that the brand is known for and has 6mm drivers in each earbud tuned with Dolby Audio for clear sound along with six microphones protected by a wind noise reduction mesh and adaptive hybrid active noise cancellation for clear audio calls.

On top of being able to survive almost anything that would turn other earbuds into art deco sculptures, Jabra has also taken great pains to ensure that the earbuds don’t fall out with extremely secure ShakeGrip tech that ensures it sticks in your ears even with extreme sports. 

The earbuds also have Google Assistant support and are rated for up to 8 hours of battery life on a single charge with an additional 24 hours of juice in the case which is more than enough for any triathlon.
