em>Introduces Three New Products
Designed Specifically for People on the Go, Music Lovers & Athletes
Copenhagen August 13, 2010 - Earphones always falling out? Lacking sound quality? Don’t worry, Jabra has the answers. Three new products announced today bring the company’s expertise in sound quality, comfort and design to the corded headset market. The Jabra CHILL and RHYTHM, are now available at retail stores nationwide with a third product, the Jabra ACTIVE, to be released later this year.
As the adoption of multimedia phones – including the iPhone and other smartphones - continues to rise, the demand for corded stereo products designed for both listening to media - music, podcasts and audio books - and talking on the phone has increased. Created by GN Netcom, a world leader in innovative headset solutions, the Jabra CHILL, RHYTHM and ACTIVE are designed with users’ needs in mind - whether they are always on the go, listening to music or engaging in athletic activities. With a user-friendly design, the new portfolio focuses on sound quality and an ergonomical design that follows the contours of the ear for a perfect look and fit.
The new portfolio of products includes:
• With a secure, comfortable fit, Jabra CHILL is perfect for listening to music and talking on the go. Jabra CHILL is the first corded headset on the market featuring Jabra Ultimate-fit Eargels™, ear gels that both stay securely in the ear and deliver a great sound experience. The headset seamlessly connects to smartphones, including the iPhone and Blackbery devices, and features a microphone with an easy-to-use button to answer and end calls.*
• Love getting lost in music wherever you go but still need to stay on top of your calls? Then Jabra RHYTHM is for you. Featuring premium stereo sound, noise isolating ear buds and microphone wind-noise reduction technology - rich, vibrant music and clear, crisp calls are assured with Jabra RHYTHM. This new stereo headset is designed to ergonomically fit ears, so it not only meets the delicate curve of ears, it looks stylish too.
• With Jabra ACTIVE, athletes and active users will be able to listen to music and train hard without worrying about adjusting their ear buds. Ergonomically designed for sports, the Jabra ACTIVE features Jabra Active Eargels™, sweat and water-resistant ear buds that securely and comfortably “lock” into the ear so they won’t fall out. The headset offers superior sound quality, microphone wind-noise reduction and comes with a neat carrying case making it easily portable.
The Jabra CHILL, RHYTHM and ACTIVE all include a unified control box that allows users easily skip tracks and answer calls from the microphone so there is no need to fidget with your iPhone or mobile device.* The devices all feature a 3.5mm gold-plated plug, ideal for the transmission of premium music quality that works with industry standard smartphones, including the iPhone.
The Jabra CHILL and RHYTHM are currently available at retail stores for a suggested retail price of xx and xx, respectively. For further information on Jabra, please visit: www.jabra.com
