CES 2018: Everything Announced By Jabra

With last year’s second-gen Elite Sport true wireless earbuds acting as a solid refinement, 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Jabra. It all starts at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. Usually a playground for sin and vice, the week-long consumer technology mecca sees Vegas become a playground for gadgets, gizmos and everything in-between.

Here’s what Jabra brought to this year’s CES:

Jabra Elite 65t

What is it?

The Jabra’s third-generation true wireless earbuds. This time, Jabra are pitching themselves less at fitness-junkies and more at the professional, office-working, business customers Jabra has successfully courted in the past.

What’s exciting about it?

The 65t includes one-touch access to Siri, and Google Now and Amazon Alexa on-the-go and touts up to 15 hours of battery life (five hours per charge, with two full recharges held by the case).

When will it be available?

March 2018.

How much will it cost?

No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

Has Australian availability been confirmed yet?

The Jabra Elite 65t will be available in Australia and New Zealand from March.

Jabra Elite Active 65t

What is it?

The Elite Active 65t offers up the same 15 hour battery life but tilts the experience towards the kind of fitness-focused customers that Jabra impressed with the Elite Sport earbuds.

What’s exciting about it?

The new earbuds feature enhanced grip, through special coating, an integrated accelerometer for tracking features and IP56 sweat, water and dust certification.

When will it be available?

Mid-2018.

How much will it cost?

No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

Has Australian availability been confirmed yet?

The Jabra Elite Active 65t will be available in Australia and New Zealand in mid-2018.     


Jabra Elite 45e

What is it?

A set of wireless earbuds linked together by a soft neck-band. Though this means it isn’t quite as true-wireless as the others, Jabra insist the Elite 45e still uses the same core tech powering their third-gen Elite 65t and second-gen Elite Sport earbuds.

What’s exciting about it?

Jabra say the new Elite 45e comes engineered to deliver the best voice and music experience for users who want high audio quality without compromising on design and form-factor.

In addition, Jabra say it boasts a unique box microphone solution that delivers the clearest voice communication on any stereo wireless headphone.

When will it be available?

Mid-2018.

How much will it cost?

No local pricing has been confirmed yet.

Has Australian availability been confirmed yet?

The Jabra Elite Active 45e will be available in Australia and New Zealand in mid-2018.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

Luke Hill

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

Emily Tyson

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

Laura Johnston

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
