Malaysia, 30 April 2012 – Two Jabra products – Jabra SUPREME and Jabra SPORT – were recognized by the prestigious “red dot award: product design 2012,” the Company announced today.
“The most distinguished products of the respective branch of industry faced up not only to the tough competition this year again, but also to the critical eye of the jury,” says Professor Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the red dot design award. “The experts thoroughly examined, tested and evaluated each individual entry applying the highest standards. With their performances, the laureates did not only demonstrate an extraordinary design quality but they also showed that design is an integral part of innovative product solutions. At this high level, the winners are able to increase their potential for success on the market considerably by purposefully using our design prize.”
Jabra SUPREME unites design and usability with its patented Flip-Boom arm. Users simply unfold the arm to switch on and fold to switch off. When not in use, it folds to pocket size for easy storing. Jabra SUPREME also delivers custom comfort for all ears, by letting you adjust the headset to achieve the best fit and placement according to the user’s needs.
The Jabra SPORT takes music-listening while playing sports and exercising to the next level by cutting the cord, providing a secure wearing-style that stays put, while at the same time being discreet. It is an ultra-light and easy to wear headset that provides a secure and comfortable fit during workouts through its flexible, ergonomic behind-the-ear design.
These products join three other Jabra products that have been recently honored by the red dot design award organization – the Jabra JX20 in 2009, the Jabra WAVE and the Jabra FREEWAY in 2011.
