The Christmas holidays are just around the corner and the lucky ones who will actually leave the big city to spend them with their loved ones somewhere far away are probably right now out in the market looking for ways to improve on that experience either by checking all the latest camcorder and digital camera models. I on the other hand am continuing my never ending quest to find the best earphone set to accompany me pretty much whenever I’m not at home including these holidays (which i intend to spend on the mountain with friends and family). Unfortunately due to the size and technology used with earphones most of the times you have to choose between one with very crisp and accurate mids/highs or one with good bass levels. There are certainly some special earphone sets in the market that offer both but because of their "hefty" price tags it's a good bet that most people will never get their hands on those. It seems however that Jabra wants to bring the best of both worlds in the market with their latest VOX Dolby-Digital in-ear earphones which we've been using for slightly over a month now with impressive results.
Jabra is the brand of GN Netcom, a subsidiary of GN Store Nord A/S (GN) - listed on NASDAQ OMX. Jabra employs approximately 850 people worldwide and in 2011 produced an annual revenue which amounted to DKK 2,106 million. Jabra is a world leader in the development, manufacturing, and marketing of a broad range of hands-free communications solutions. With a reputation for innovation, reliability, and ease of use that goes back more than two decades, Jabra’s consumer and business divisions produce corded and wireless headsets, plus mobile and in-office speakerphones that empower individuals and businesses through increased freedom of movement, comfort, and functionality.
After having tested countless headsets and earsets i know that the specifications of such products are not always what matters mainly because of the different components used both in terms of type and quality so although two such devices may be similar in specifications the end result can be worlds apart. Regardless the VOX earphone set comes wearing two 8.6mm dynamic drivers that have a frequency response of 20Hz-20KHz, 16 Ohm impedance, 120dB sensitivity and also features an Omni-directional microphone paired with an in-line controller for use with compatible Apple devices (iPhone, iPod, iPad). The VOX also features liquid crystal polymer reinforced tangle-free cables and can also be used with Jabras android/iOS DOLBY DIGITAL app for improved full spectrum sound. All these sound really nice but the time has come to get really close and personal with the latest VOX in-ear earphones by Jabra.
