Few things are more frustrating than unboxing a fresh pair of earbuds only to realize that their virtual assistant access feature is dubious at best. Fortunately, the Jaybird Tarah is “Made for Google,” which means that it’s received the stamp of approval directly from Google. This all but guarantees compatibility with Google devices according to this morning’s Logitech press release.

But there’s more to the Jaybird Tarah than meets the ear. Like the Jaybird X4, the included earbuds are IPX7-certified. This allows listeners to submerge the Tarah earbuds in up to one meter of water for 30 minutes. Like the Jaybird X4 and its predecessors, listeners can control EQ adjustments via the Jaybird app.

Additionally, the workout earbuds offer six hours of constant playback and sport an understated design, affording a versatile fit and appearance that’s gym and office appropriate. While it’s inevitable that listeners will forget to charge the earbuds every now and then, the quick charge feature grants an hour of playtime after just 10 minutes of charging. 

The Jaybird Tarah Wireless is available in nimbus gray-jade, black metallic-flash, and solstice blue-glacier and can be pre-ordered now for $99.99.
