Can I wear my Elite 8 Active Gen 2 when swimming?

While Elite 8 Active Gen 2 are completely watertight in freshwater even under conditions of prolonged submersion up to 1.5 meters (IP rating of IP68), they do not offer the same level of watertight submersion in salt water or chlorinated water. The Bluetooth signal does not function in water, and we cannot guarantee a stable connection. For these reasons, we do not recommend using your earbuds while swimming.

What is spatial sound?

The Elite 8 Active Gen 2 Spatial Sound is powered by Dolby. Instead of experiencing sound directly inside the ears, you’ll feel sound as if it’s outside your head, making listening on earbuds more lifelike.

What is Natural HearThrough?

Elite 8 Active Gen 2 brings you improved Natural HearThrough so you can stay in tune with your surroundings wherever you’re working out. Doubling the effectiveness of its predecessor, this next generation takes the listening experience one step further. In nutshell, Natural Hearthrough enhances the frequency bandwidth, allowing ambient sounds to come through with greater clarity and a more natural tone. Specially optimized to counteract wind interference, it uses algorithms to monitor wind speed, reducing or shutting down the sound from the feedforward microphones if the noise threshold is exceeded. So, you can stay aware of your environment even when working out in extreme conditions.
