Elite 8 Active

Nothing Tougher




Extreme environments are no match for Elite 8 Active: the world’s toughest earbuds*.

Rigorously tested to withstand huge clouds of dust, whether biking up the dustiest mountain trail or a sandy beach, they will always go the distance.

Military Tested

Tested to meet US Military Standard for rugged electronics (passing 9 durability tests*), these earbuds tough it out no matter how extreme your workout environment.


Dust-tight earbuds

Elite 8 Active have maximum level of dust protection (with an IP rating of IP6X) so a jog on the beach or going dirt biking on gritty terrain is always on the cards.

Dust-protected case

Even the case is dust-resistant (with an IP rating of IP5X) so bring it along for any adventure where you might be kicking up some grit.



The weather can be unpredictable but our earbuds aren’t.

Completely waterproof in all environments, they can endure rugged conditions in any weather no matter if you’re kayaking or on the side of a mountain in a storm.

They’ll even survive being fully submerged in up to 1.5 meters of water.

Fully waterproof earbuds

Completely watertight earbuds, even under conditions of prolonged submersion up to 1.5 meters (IP rating of IPX8). Rinsing underwater, splashing during water sports or getting soaked on a rainy day won’t stop them.

Splashproof case

The case has full protection from splashed water from any direction (IP rating of IPX4) so you can take it with you no matter what the weather forecast is saying.


Tested against saltwater splash so a run on the beach or a particularly high impact workout is never a problem.


Jabra ShakeGrip™

No matter how extreme your exercise, our revolutionary Jabra ShakeGrip™ technology means these buds stay put.

Whether you’re running a marathon or just running to catch the bus, the silicone coating provides a strong secure grip, without the need for ear-wings.

Completely wing-free design. No more tweaking and twisting of ear wings or hooks, as these buds stay firmly in place without them even during your most rigorous workout.

The closed earbud design fits firmly and snugly in the ear, forming a tight but comfortable seal for an ultra-secure fit.

Our Liquid Silicone Rubber compound covers a large area of the earbud. It holds the buds more securely in the ear and is soft and supple despite its firm grip. Perfect for staying put during a long workout.

With our revolutionary Jabra ShakeGrip™ technology, these buds won’t budge. The Liquid Silicone Rubber compound holds the buds more securely in the ear, no matter how much you put them through their paces.

What are IP Ratings?

In a nutshell, the IP rating indicates how much protection your electronics have from dust and water.

The IP Rating itself is made up of ‘IP’ (Ingress Protection) and then 2 digits. The first digit indicates the level of protection from solids (e.g. dust) and the second digit indicates the level of protection from liquids (e.g. water).

There is a scale of protection, with 0 meaning there is no protection whatsoever, all the way up to 6 for solids and 8 for liquids which is the maximum level of protection (even when submerged).
