Communications and audio solutions manufacturer and amazing promotional picture taker Jabra, have taken it upon themselves this festive CES season to transform people’s life through the power of the force sound.

The company presented the new Jabra Sports audio range which comprise a responsive range of intelligent and wireless headsets in order to optimise any workout such as the Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless, Jabra Sport Coach Wireless and the Jabra Sport Pace Wireless

Jabra Intelligent Headset Developer Edition

In order to invest in the future of audio, Jabra introduced a new sound experience that 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 recognised. 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.

Using intelligence from sensors places applications at the heart of future audio innovation. Jabra has already successfully capitalised 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.

Rene 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!”
