Bluetooth wireless sport headphone maker Jaybird has launched its Tarah Pro model, which can hold a charge for 14 hours, the company claims.

In a statement, Jaybird said a five-minute charge would allow use for two hours, and a new Magnetic Snap Lock feature would automatically pause the music being played when the earbuds were snapped together and secured around the wearer's neck.

Jaybird chief executive Jamie Parker said the new model had been designed with insights from some of the world's best endurance athletes.

"We are extremely excited to announce Tarah Pro, the first wireless headphone in Jaybird's Pro Series," he said.

"We've set the bar in the category with 14 hours of battery life, but I must say that I'm equally excited about the never-before-seen features bringing new benefits for runners and fitness enthusiasts, including Switch Fit for a quick transition between over- and under-ear fit, the non-stick sport cord introducing reflectivity and the new Personalised EQ in the Jaybird app."

jaybirdThe Tarah Pro is water- and sweat-proof and uses double hydrophobic nano coating on the buds. The earphones' Switch Fit allow they to use them either under-ear or else over-ear.

The headphones come with three different sizes of combined silicone ear tips/fins and are claimed to have a customised comfortable, secure fit.

As part of a simple set-up, the phones will run users through a quick hearing test in order to create a personalised EQ setting based on Jaybird's proprietary algorithms.

The Tarah Pro will be sold on the company website and JB Hi-Fi from today for an RRP of $229.95.
