While Jabra may be a brand better known for its excellent Bluetooth headsets, the Copenhagen-based company appears to be making more of an effort to make a mark as a headphone manufacturer.

The company launched three new headphones, the Revo, Revo Wireless and the Vox. The first two are on-ear headphones while the Vox is a pair of in-ear headphones. While both Revo models sound similar, the wireless version comes with Bluetooth connectivity and has a touch-sensitive jog wheel for adjusting volume and skipping through tracks. The Vox, on the other hand, are in-ear models with a durable cord and magnets near the earpieces that keep both sides together when they're kept in a bag.

Another selling point of these headphones is the Dolby Digital Plus software enhancement you get via a free Jabra Sound App. The app, which will be available soon for iOS and Android, will allows users to add Dolby "surround sound" to music or movies, lending to a more spacious sound, while also featuring a built-in equalizer to further tweak the sound output.

Chris McCarney, ANZ Channel Sales Manager at Jabra, said Jabra has designed this new range of stereo headphones for pop and rock enthusiasts who want rich, high-definition sound clarity as well as serious jazz and classical audiophiles looking to take their favourite recordings to a higher level of performance and sophistication.

“The global adoption of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices means more and more people are communicating on the move and taking their music with them. This ‘always on’ wave of mobile users is consuming an ever-increasing amount of entertainment, which increases device wear and tear – particularly with headphones.”

The Revo and Revo Wireless will retail at AU$199.99 and $299 in Australia, respectively, while the Vox has been priced at $129. The headphones are expected to hit Telstra stores and other selected retailers from late March 2013.
