Both the Revo and Revo Wireless aim to improve tablet and Smartphone audio quality.
Tinny. Nothing sums up the audio experience of today's mobile electronics more accurately than tinny. Even now, $1500 tablets and laptops are being designed with tinny sound. Jabra knows this, and has spent considerable time with products set around alleviating pathetic sound quality in the pursuit of business applications. With the Revo and its wireless twin, Jabra is aiming to take on the millions of tinny sounded pieces of tech everywhere.
The Revo is Jabra's stylish can earphone option, and the Revo Wireless is its bluetooth equipped twin. The Jabra Vox is the small, in-ear option. These three products are pretty, but more importantly are meant to stand up to everyday use and are focused on stereo sound.
By coupling their headphones with Dolby Digital Plus audio processing and a companion iOS and Android app, Jabra is subtly declaring that the same hardware manufacturers that stick consumers with tinny sound speakers have left something to be desired in the audio processing department.
While Dolby has stressed that their Dolby Digital Plus mobile tech is a game changer, especially when applied to dialogue laden film content, Jabra is offering an aftermarket addition for every mobile device encountered throughout a typical day.
Pricing for the new line has not yet been announced but should be soon ahead of their upcoming expected launch.
