Road warriors get another weapon to make travelling easier

Carrying off from where its predecessor, the Jabra Speak 510 left off, the Jabra Speak 710 builds on the 510’s foundation and adds new features.

Some of the new features include upgraded omni-directional microphones for up to six ‘in-room’ attendees, 15 hours of battery life, and HiFi grade speakers, promising crystal clear conferencing and music on-the-go.

Connection to a smart device or laptop is simple through Bluetooth, USB or for PCs, the enclosed dongle. Once connected, users will have a 30-meter range for laptops or 10-meter for smartphones.

It also adds easy connection to a host of smart devices via a smart button that enables users to connect to their Personal Digital Assistant such as Siri, Google Now and Cortana to activate designated apps, while also allowing the possibility of storing speed dialing options for your phone.

It also switches between music and calls allowing it to be a music speaker after work hours. Simply connect to an online music streaming service or music library on the mobile device. Trying the device at the launch we felt that while it couldn’t compare to dedicated speakers like those from Bose or Shure, the Speak 710 performed more than adequately over different music genres.

The Jabra Speak 710 SGD$525 (US$299) will be available from selected retailers in April 2017.
