Jabra history

The Jabra brand has its roots in a company which has been uniting people and continents since 1869. The founding firm of the GN Group, GN Store Nord, laid the first telegraph cable between Europe and Asia in 1870, pioneering the global communication infrastructure.

The Jabra brand embodies and continues that pio¬neering spirit. Every Jabra product is designed to help achieve our constant goal of optimizing communications and connecting people across the world.

“The development of the world is dependent on communications” - C. F. Tietgen (1829-1901), founder of GN Store Nord
