Jabra Elite Active 75t Review

With the Jabra Elite 75t, the Danish brand offers high-quality true wireless headphones. Moreover, they offer music playback, phone calls, and active noise cancellation (Active Noise Cancellation, ANC). This makes them one of the strongest competitors of models like the AirPods Pro or the Sony WF-1000XM3. We have taken a close look at the completely wireless in-ears and have summarized the results of the Jabra Elite 75t in the test for you.

  • Feels less sturdy than the Elite Active 65t

Sound – How good does the Jabra Elite 75t sound?

The Jabra Elite 75t does a very good job in terms of sound. Especially the bass can be heard. This is particularly noticeable in our test song Pray For Me, with its strong bass by The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar. There you can also experience the powerful sound with the small True Wireless headphones. However, these do not overdrive so that other aspects of the song can also be heard well.

In Do not Stop Me Now by Queen is less important to the strong bass and a lot more to the song’s balanced and wide-fanned representation. This is where the Jabra Elite 75t does a good job as well. The piano can be heard clearly from left to right, and the stage is presented broadly, even if it works a little better with one or the other competitors.

The third test song is Johnny Cash’s Hurt. Here the Jabra shines with a detailed representation of the two guitars. The headphones are also very suitable for audiobooks and podcasts and ensure a pleasant listening experience. Especially fans of hip hop and electronic music with many basses get their money’s worth with the Jabra Elite 75t. This makes streaming music a pleasure.

Practice: How are the battery life and wearing comfort of the Jabra Elite 75t?

Ideally, it should be possible to reproduce the strong sound over a longer period. Therefore, a tiny but powerful battery is required for Bluetooth headphones. In the Jabra Elite 75t, this lasts up to 7.5 hours with the ANC switched off and up to 5.5 hours with the ANC switched on. These are very good values ​​for true wireless headphones.

If you are on the road for a long time, the mobile charging case kicks in, charging the headphones three more times. The case is simple and handy and fits perfectly in every pocket. The quick-charge function also enables the headphones to be charged in just 15 minutes for up to 60 minutes of listening time. If you use the phone continuously, the battery life is reduced.

Comfort

Another important aspect of daily use is comfort. The Jabra is designed in such a way that, thanks to their comfortable fit and low weight, they do not press on the ear even after several hours of non-stop listening to music. In addition, different in-ear attachments are included in the scope of delivery for the different ear sizes.

With the Jabra Elite 75t, you can, of course, also record voice messages and make calls. The microphone used for this is of good quality to still have an intelligible conversation even with ambient noises such as car noise. In addition, the True Wireless headphones are very well protected against water and foreign bodies under the IP55 standard.

Operation – The setting options of the Jabra Elite 75t in the test

Like almost all true wireless headphones, the Jabra Elite 75t has touch fields that enable operation on the earbuds. This works even when the touch fields are touched lightly. However, it would help if you were careful not to press too hard against the fields, as this can be very loud in the ear.

However, the control of the playback works very well via the fields. Songs can be started, stopped, and skipped. The playback mode can also be changed using the touch panel. To create even more key commands or to change existing commands, Jabra relies on its app.

There you can set a lot more. The very versatile app offers a clear equalizer, which enables the individual adaptation of the listening experience. Less enthusiastic users can fall back on helpful presets such as “Language” or “Soft.”

The listening modes, such as the transparency mode, can also be adjusted individually. In addition, the Jabra can be very conveniently connected to the devices via the app, and the battery level of plugs and charging cases can be checked. Jabra offers a wealth of setting options and is one of the best true wireless models on the market in this regard.

Bluetooth connection of the Jabra Elite 75t in the test

Jabra uses the Bluetooth 5.0 standard for its True Wireless headphones. This ensures a stable connection. The Jabra Elite 75t also relies on multiple, simultaneous connections. So you can connect different devices with the headphones and switch at the push of a button. In the test, this worked very reliably with both the Apple iPhone 11 and various Android smartphones.

Active NNoiseCanceling – How well do the headphones suppress ambient noise

Noise-canceling has been around for a long time in the over-ear area. In the case of classic headphones, it means that the listener suppresses outside noise so that you can enjoy music and podcasts undisturbed without turning the volume up to the maximum. For some time now, a lot of true wireless headphones have also offered the corresponding feature.

The slider for setting the noise suppression can also be moved in the other direction, and so you can activate the transparency mode. This lets through a lot of ambient noise to be attentive in traffic or a conversation with the earplugs in your ear.

Design: How well does the Jabra in-ears look?

True wireless headphones are so popular, not least because of their wireless and, therefore, great design. In that regard, the Jabra Elite 75t does a good job. The plugs are subtly designed and not as bulky as some True Wireless competitors. The charging case is of high quality and makes an attractive and handy impression. Of course, whether you like the design is a matter of taste, but Jabra is definitely on the right track.

Conclusion on the Jabra Elite 75t

The Jabra Elite 75t are high-quality headphones that impress their strong sound, ease of use, and plenty of setting options. The noise cancellation is also solid, and the connectivity is very stable. In addition, the battery life is impressive, and the wearing comfort is also very good. Overall, the Jabra Elite 75t gives you high-quality true wireless headphones, and that at a great price-performance ratio.
