The Jaybird Tarah Pro Wireless Sport Headphones claim an ‘industry leading 14 hours of battery life’, packaged as ‘durable, adventure-proof compact wireless headphones’. Equipped with unique features geared towards athletes, the headphones provide a ‘secure custom-fit and uncompromising sound, with new Personalized EQ functionality through the Jaybird app’.
Tarah Pro is the first in Jaybird’s Pro Series: a new line of wireless sport headphones for endurance athletes.
“Designed with insights from some of the world’s best endurance athletes, we are extremely excited to announce Tarah Pro, the first wireless headphone in Jaybird’s Pro Series,” said Jamie Parker, CEO of Jaybird.
“We’ve set the bar in the category with 14 hours of battery life. But I must say that I’m equally excited about the never-before-seen features bringing new benefits for runners and fitness enthusiasts, including Switch Fit for a quick transition between over- and under-ear fit, the non-stick sport cord introducing reflectivity and the new Personalized EQ in the Jaybird app.”
Tarah Pro delivers a claimed battery life of 14 hours to accompany athletes on some of their longest runs. Jaybird adds that ‘A quick five minute charge gives two full hours of play time so there’s no excuse to get out and run with your favourite tunes.’
The new Magnetic Snap Lock feature automatically pauses music when the earbuds are snapped together, securing them around the user’s neck. The music automatically restarts where it was left off once the buds are placed back in the ear, helping to preserve battery life.
Featuring a lightweight design, Tarah Pro is waterproof (IPX7) and sweatproof,. Jaybird adds that they ‘can handle any inclement weather you encounter: rain, snow, or even accidental submersion down to 1m for up to 30 minutes.’
Jaybird’s Switch Fit feature allows runners and athletes to rotate between over-ear fit for a secure, sports-specific usage and under-ear for more relaxed situations, while the buds remain in-ear. The non-stick reflective fabric cord helps with visibility. Meanwhile, the new Speed Cinch cord management system helps to adjust the length of the cable quickly. Tarah Pro comes with three different sizes of Jaybird’s combined silicone ear tips/fins for a customized comfortable, secure fit.
The latest version of the Jaybird app allows users to unlock new functionality with Tarah Pro. As part of the set up process, the Jaybird app will run users through a quick hearing test in order to create a personalized EQ setting based on Jaybird’s proprietary algorithms.
The test will help you set a user’s ideal sound profile, ‘meaning a unique, personalized music experience with uncompromised sound quality’. This is in addition to Jaybird’s standard EQ and Spotify integration which allows users to create and share playlists within the app. (Use of the app’s Spotify functionality requires a Spotify Premium account.)
