Jabra’s Elite 65t earbuds have been a decent competitor to Apple’s AirPod Pro and the go-to replacement for people with Android smartphones or whose ears didn’t support the one-size-fits-most AirPod design ever since their release. But Jabra has always tried to provide us affordable alternatives, and in that time, we’ve noticed pretty much every consumer tech firm take a swing at true wireless earbuds.
Jabra has eventually presented an upgrade in the Elite 75t earbuds. With the latest design, enhanced battery life, and remarkably improved sound quality, there’s much more to love about them.
Jabra Elite 75t Earbuds
Jabra succeeded to reduce the earbuds by 20 percent and came up with a design that’s both more detailed and more convenient than the Jabra Elite 65t. The earlier earbuds were fatter and had an inconvenient attachment in some ears that created trouble over time, but we’ve noticed none of that with the 75t. The microphone stem has also reduced in size and no longer extends out as far from the earbuds.
Overall, these earbuds are designed much smoother and more elegant than Jabra’s earlier attempts and should please more people. Aside from getting them smaller, Jabra also reduced the weight of the 75t earbuds so there’s less chance of them coming detached and dropping out of your ear canal. Furthermore, the earbuds are IP55 water and sweat resistant.
Despite the decrease in size, Jabra has improved battery life remarkably. The firm guarantees up to 7.5 hours of regular audio playback, and 28 hours of total running time if you consider the extra charges from the case. That’s prominently more lasting than either the AirPods or AirPods Pro.
Jabra has upgraded the carrying case in some useful ways: it’s more natural to open one-handed — the disturbing hook is gone — and there’s now a USB-C port rather than Micro USB. The case cap closes magnetically, and the buds themselves are also strongly tied with magnets.
The one prominent deficiency is wireless charging, which is something you can get from the AirPods Pro and Galaxy Buds. Another thing Jabra has dropped from these earbuds is active noise cancellation. If you can get a great seal with one of the included sets of ear tips, the 75t does a fine job of noise isolation and calming down your surroundings. But they can’t put you in a private room with your music or videos quite like the AirPods Pro.
It’s accessible to use the Jabra Elite 75t earbuds through conventional Bluetooth pairing and without agreeing to anything. But upgrading the firmware (which usually adds new features), customizing the EQ, and customizing other settings of the earbuds needs Jabra’s Sound+ app for either Android or iOS.
Like its rivals, Jabra incorporates a method to pipe in outside audio for locations where you need the perception of what’s happening around you. A press of the left earbud’s physical button activates HearThrough mode.
One plus point of the 75t earbuds is that they can be paired to two devices simultaneously, so you can have them connected to both your PC and phone in case a call comes in.
Jabra Elite 75t Earbuds are available at $179.99 and come in four colors: Navy, Copper Black, Grey, and Titanium Black.
If you’re not willing to Apple’s AirPods Pro or the likewise costly Powerbeats Pro, the Jabra Elite 75t earbuds are the best and ideal alternate choice. No doubt, there are many other options, but none with the same number of plus points.
