Jabra Elite Active 45e Wireless Headphones

Engineered for Life: Jabra Elite Active 45e Wireless Headphones

Sometimes in life, you have to make adjustments. Whether it’s something big like spending habits or diet, or something small like beauty products or changing their headphones. For us, the increase in temperature meant we had to put away our over-the-head headphones for a pair that’s a bit more non-overheating. We always stay active and use our headphones for music and calls, so we needed a pair that was engineered for our life. We found exactly what we needed in the Jabra Elite Active 45e wireless headphones.

Jabra Elite Active 45e Wireless Headphones

Not only does this Bluetooth earhook fit comfortably and securely over our ears, but it also boasts a battery life of up to 9 hours on a single charge. We can listen to our music and take calls with being completely unaware of what’s going on around us (safety first, always). Other features of the Jabra Elite Active 45e include 2-microphone call technology which allows us to seamlessly switch between listening to our music and making calls, with crystal-clear sound. Another aspect we love is its voice command capabilities. If you so desire, you can seamlessly and instantly connect to your Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant. Go from listening to music to a phone call to setting appointments, having your messages read to you and more.

Comfort-wise, the Jabra Elite Active 45e is wonderful. It fits comfortably around our ears and our heads with no need to adjust. We don’t have to worry about it shifting while we’re in motion and of course, we’re not left overheated. Love to run in the elements? These boast IP67-rated waterproof durability, with a 2-year sweat and dust warranty. The Jabra Elite Active 45e pairs easily with any smartphone and can be customized to your needs with the Jabra Sound+ app. Making adjustments like accessing your most-used widgets or selecting your preferred voice assistant can be done with a touch of a button.

Small Size, Big Sound: Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones

To quote Eric B and Rakim, “this is a journey into sound.” The evolution of wireless sound that is. Several weeks ago, we were lucky enough to be invited to view the latest tech launches from Logitech. One of the products we were introduced to was a newly acquired sports headphone and wearables company, Jaybird. This buyout officially places Logitech into the wireless audio wearables market. Not only is this a great move for Logitech, Jaybird is a great brand to expand into the exploding market with. You’ll see why, when you get to know the products from Jaybird. Here are the reasons we were immediately enamored with the Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones.

Freedom_Wireless_Bluetooth_Headphones_www.mylieonandofftheguestlist.com

These amazing Bluetooth headphones are smallest wireless buds ever to provide an insanely big sound. The Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones was created to bring music to your active life in a stunning, patented, secure fit, sweat-proof, and ultra-comfort metal design. The technology and design behind the Freedom headphones combine sophisticated style, incredible sound and increased comfort in the smallest, most advanced wireless earbuds ever.

Freedom_Wireless_Bluetooth_Headphones2_www.mylieonandofftheguestlist.com

Other in-ear sport Bluetooth buds have traditionally used all plastic materials, as metal is said to inhibit signal performance, but Jaybird’s innovative design has allowed them to reinvent the manufacturing process. Using high-quality injection molded metal parts, the Freedom boasts stunning fashionable metal accents with a premium iconic feel, without affecting signal performance. In fact, the Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones’s all-metal housing gives the earbuds the added benefit of removing distortion, giving you an incredible sound never before heard in a wireless in-ear bud.

The Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones comes in four colors, Carbon (black), Gold (white/gold), Blaze (red), and Ocean (blue), is compatible to wear with helmets (no matter how tight), and its innovative bud size ensures a truly universal comfort fit. As a long sufferer of earbud slippage, this beauty is a godsend. We’ve always had issues with ill-fitting earbuds that slip out with the slightest movement on our part. This is why we usually go for on-ear headphones but with the Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Headphones, it’s not an issue.

Freedom_Wireless_Bluetooth_Headphones3_www.mylieonandofftheguestlist.com

Each headphone comes with a specially designed charging clip to keep you charged on-the-go, and giving you eight hours of playtime with the ability to charge even longer. Just clip the lightweight charger on while driving to the gym or during your workout and 20 minutes gets you an extra hour of playtime.
