• Jabra STEEL™ is Jabra’s toughest wireless headset ever
• Comes with unique 5-year warrantys
• Dust, water and shock resistant to US military standards
• Supreme call quality in rough environments
Copenhagen, 13th October 2015 - Jabra, the leading manufacturer of innovative audio solutions, has launched Jabra STEEL, a Bluetooth® headset specifically designed for rough working environments. The superior, state-of-the-art headset has been developed using Jabra’s 145 years of R&D expertise in delivering audio innovation.
Following an extensive examination of the daily needs of trade professionals and craft workers, Jabra has created a highly durable headset to meet the specific needs of those with the toughest jobs, whether on-site in high winds, covered in dirt or under a kitchen sink. Jabra STEEL has been tested rigorously, by exposing it to high drops on to hard surfaces, testing it for water (and other liquid, such as paint) and dust ingress, as well as vibration, temperature and squeeze testing; all of which make it the right tool for rugged environments.
Better sound equals better business
Jabra STEEL is just right for noisy environments. The headset offers HD Voice with dual-microphone noise cancellation technology that listens to the surrounding environment and isolates your voice. Missed calls will become a thing of the past and stopping working to take a call is no longer necessary. All-important calls can be taken on the spot and clearly heard.
“This is for anyone that does not sit at a desk but still need to take important calls, as the next contract may not call back,” says Darcy Clarkson, Head of Mobile Division at Jabra. ”We know that a specific headset for these kinds of situations is in demand, as standard headsets won’t address the challenges of rough conditions. You don’t worry about breaking your hammer when you are using it, and you shouldn’t have to worry about your wireless headset.”
The Jabra STEEL offers a robust audio solution for workers with the added freedom of wireless. Its extra-large buttons have been specifically designed so that they can be used with wet, or even gloved, hands. It also gives easy access to Siri/Google Now and allows voice activated call pick-up, as well as message readout (Android phones only).
The custom designed earhook also provides a secure fit regardless of the task being undertaken. Whether a job requires upside-down work, bumpy rides or safety gear, Jabra STEEL offers a compact, battery-efficient solution that remains securely in place all day.
Throw It, Drop It, Trust It
With a hard casing for shock resistance, water-ingress protection and safeguarded against dust, Jabra STEEL has been tested to cope with challenging workplace environments. For those working in particularly windy conditions, a special windsock ensures clear communications when outside.
The toughest headset demands the most durable materials and extensive research has ensured that all bases are covered. In fact, it’s so tough that the Jabra STEEL comes with a 5-year warranty.
Equipped with a unique MicroPOWER battery, the Jabra STEEL is lightweight and comes with a talk time of over 6 hours, as well as a power nap feature for extended standby time.
Teamed with the Jabra Assist Application, the Jabra STEEL offers extra services including a handy set-up guide and access to a battery status.
