The affordable Jabra Elite 4 could have the top wireless buds shaking in their boots

Jabra has just taken the wraps off its latest pair of true wireless earbuds, the Elite 4. Taking the place of the outgoing Elite 3 and slotting in at the more affordable end of the company’s lineup of in-ears, the Elite 4 brings plenty to the table to potentially worry the best budget wireless earbuds.

Notable reasons for our bold claim are the inclusion of active noise cancelation (ANC) and a price tag of $99.99 / £99.99 / AU$139. While we’ll have to hold back our opinion on how they sound, they do appear to share the same 6mm driver that’s fitted to other pairs of Jabra’s Elite earbuds, such as the Elite 7 Pro.

In our Elite 7 Pro review, we did find the audio profile out of the box to be a little bass heavy, although it can be customized by way of a companion app, which is also the case here thanks to Jabra’s Sound+ app. What’s also pleasing to see is that Jabra has included support for the Qualcomm aptX codec, which promises to deliver improved audio quality over Bluetooth when streamed from compatible devices. In most instances, this is likely to be selected Android phones.
