Jabra 3D HeadsetAt CES 2016, Jabra is presenting the Jabra Sports audio range, a responsive range of intelligent wireless headsets to optimize any workout. The range features Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless, optimized for running and featuring the world’s first in-ear biometric heart rate monitor combined with immersive Dolby sound, Jabra Sport Coach Wireless, optimized for cross-training and incorporating a TrackFit motion sensor, and Jabra Sport Pace Wireless, designed to let you plan, monitor and evaluate your performance via the Jabra Sport Life App.

This specifically designed combination of high-quality music and intelligent in-ear coaching, made possible by advanced sensor readings, enables the award-winning Jabra Sports Range to offer a unique solution in the sports audio market and empower users all over the world to transform their lives.

Jabra is investing in the future of intelligent and interactive audio with its Intelligent Headset Developer Edition, the next generation of headsets. This revolutionary new sound experience adapts to location, head movement, and application. Integrated advanced sensors empower the ‘3D experience’, using GPS, gyroscope, compass and accelerometers to provide head-tracking that instantly and intuitively enable the user’s requirements depending on what they are looking at or doing.

The 3D audio experience is identical to the way humans hear sound, allowing the listener to hear where sounds are coming from. The headsets themselves are also set to drive innovation, as they are already available for mobile app developers to use the intelligence provided by sensor data to create some of the most interactive apps possible.

The headsets are available for developers at present, and are fully certified with free downloadable software development kits. The potential benefits are already being recognized. Microsoft and UK Guide Dogs have selected the Jabra Intelligent Headset for a life-changing application. The new research collaboration will enable people living with sight loss to achieve more independence in their day-to-day lives.

Jarnail Chudge, Product Manager at Microsoft comments: “Intelligent audio is an important underlying technology for the Cities Unlocked project and we’re interested in Jabra’s capabilities in this area. We look forward to exploring this further in future phases of the project.”

Using intelligence from sensors places applications at the heart of future audio innovation. Jabra has already successfully capitalized on the intelligence delivered by sensors in audio devices. Apps are crucial to how this intelligence is used to ensure the mobile and audio experience continues to adapt to changing lifestyles. For example, the Jabra Sport Life app used with the Jabra Sport range, and the Intelligent Headset Developer Edition that is set to be at the heart of mobile app development.

René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra comments: “The future of audio is about adding intelligence. It’s about applying innovation to more aspects of sound than were thought possible before. In the future, sound innovation will be about how you listen, where you listen and why. Sound technology will be at the heart of people’s lives, in more interactive and intuitive ways, and new layers of intelligence will enable that to happen!”
