Look out for intuitive customisable controls and a seven-hour battery life that can be extended up to 20 hours. For phone calls and when using smart assistants, the earbuds, which come in black or white, feature ambient noise reduction microphones to make voice interactions sound natural and lucid.

Jabra Elite 45H


A compact and lightweight wireless headphone, the Elite 45h, which was launched just this year, has a 50-hour battery life with just one charge. This headphone also has an ultra-fast charging feature: 15 minutes of charging can yield 10 hours of battery life (compared to the initial figure of eight hours battery life in 15 minute of charging).

Other notable specs include a large 40mm speaker for superior music experience; a single fold feature that allows the headphones to lie flat, fitting easily into bags; Bluetooth 5.0 for heightened connectivity; and a dual-microphone technology for extremely audible calls even in a noisy environment.
