    Go Get These!!!! Business People and Casual Users

    Posted .

    -=First Impressions=- Typical Jabra presentation with secure and simple packaging. My first thoughts were "these look so business/corporate, they could replace my Plantronics Voyager Edge". Fitting took some getting used to, but once I found the right tips they did not fall out or move at all. Initially, you may feel discomfort while trying to find YOUR proper ear tips, but that goes away fairly quickly. These are pure quality and built to last! The Elite 65t buds are a little bigger than a nickel. The case is pocket sized and fits nicely in the palm your hand although it takes some practice for one handed operation. I wish there was a way to get more accurate battery representation for the case in app or a light bar/indicator. Sound isolation is very good and I think these are the most well balanced for music and voice calls. The best part is you will NOT look like Frankenstein with these in your ears! I love the low profile build of these. Things I like: +Bluetooth 5.0 - these are the ONLY ones on the market with Bluetooth 5.0 as of this review 2/13/2018. +Total Wireless Solution - no wires bouncing on your neck or sticking to you when you work out. No more accidental tugging to annoy you when you are running. Lightweight and can go hours without noticing them. +Built Quality/IP55 - splash proof and dust proof. Offers 2yr warranty on IP55 protection! Built like tanks! +Fit - the fit was perfect and not one single movement during my run or workout. I ran about 5 miles and then did my weight routine. Not a single wiggle. Great job Jabra! +Quick Charge - a quick 15-minute charge provides up to 90 minutes of play time! +Case - has battery reserve of 2 charges. That means 10 hours in the case and 5hrs on the headphones for 15hrs total. +Battery Life - I can probably get a week's worth of use before needing to recharge the case. Easily makes it through a few gym sessions. +Sound & EQ - nice balanced sound. Not too bass heavy and not sharp in highs. I would say it is a sound profile similar to Jaybirds. These have great sound isolation though. EQ available through app. +Mono/Stereo - these can be used in stereo or mono. Use only the right side if you want to have a single Bluetooth experience +Call Quality - in stereo these are amazing. Callers cannot tell if I am using a Bluetooth or not. +Pass Through Sound - these use the on-board mics to allow sound in so you can hear around you while listening to music. +Sound Synced - there is no latency between video playback and audio in my ears. It is perfect and not a complaint in this department. +Look - looks nice, business/executive styling. Very subtle and no not attract much attention. Things I would change: -No aptX - no support for aptX or aptXhd. Sound quality is good, but this should be standard for all wireless headphones with BT5.0 -Button Placement - after some practice, I have figured out where things are. The left ear controls are difficult to find and press. -Buttons - the left side buttons are very stiff and require a LOT of pressure to activate. This make the earbud uncomfortable since you press into your ear to activate. -Charging - you're only able to charge in the cradle. If anything happens to it, you will probably have to shell out more cash as they require a proprietary pin charger. -No Tracking - there should be some sort of way to blast sound to these in case you lose them. An alert with last known location should be an option when out of range. -No USB C - it's unbelievable we are still using micro USB in 2018. I worry I may break the connector since everything I own now has USB C. -App - the app is excellent with regards to features but these do not get stored once you put them away. -Lost Settings - I would incorporate some way of storing last used settings to the ear buds so you don't need to use the app to reactivate them each time. -Range - these are advertised as BT5.0. That means you should get around 120ft range with them if you have a phone that also supports BT5.0. Not the case here. I seriously doubt these are actually BT5.0 being that the range is around 30ft like BT4.0. -Case - I would like to see a light bar or indicator LCD that shows battery level. One light isn't good enough for me. Also, it is tough to use with one hand. It takes practice but can be done. Maybe wireless charging in the case would be nice as well. -Voice Commands - there is a terrible delay in the time you say "answer" and the time the call is answered using voice commands -=The Verdict=- These are a great release from Jabra. Audiophiles, these are not for you since you know only a wired listening device produces the best sound. If you want new Bluetooth headset, these are a buy. They offer versatility without sacrificing call quality and music quality. These are built to last.

    Great Wireless Earbuds, AirPod Slayer For Many!

    |
    Posted .

    I stayed away from wireless earbuds for quite some time. All of the ones I had tried previously had horrible battery life, dropped the signal all the time, were way too obtrusive in my ears, and worst of all they usually sounded pretty bad. The first pair of wireless earbuds I kept and loved were the Apple AirPods and I still think they are a great choice for many people, but they do have some serious issues for some folks. They don't block out any outside noise, are not IP rated (so can't be counted on to keep out dust and moisture), and can easily fall out of your ears if you are doing anything other than sitting or walking casually. They have some pretty great benefits as well with great connectivity to Apple devices, very good sound quality, great battery life, multiple charges from the storage case, and they are small and compact. The great thing about the Jabra Elite 65t earbuds is that they match or surpass most of the best qualities of AirPods and solve all of the problems I mentioned. Let's break this down shall we? Looks: While I appreciate the Apple aesthetic, many people have commented that they thought the AirPods looked weird. Perhaps because they don't look like 'normal' earbuds or because they are so jarringly white. The Elite 65t looks sharp and professional. The black and gunmetal gray are unobtrusive and since they hug your ear rather closely, some people may even miss that you are wearing them. Big win goes to the Elites. Sound Signature: Here I would call it a tie. I enjoy the sound from the AirPods and I think the sound is phenomenal from the Elites. While some people such as myself like the fact that the Jabra Elite app allows for fine tuning the equalizer settings, most won't care about this or even know that they can do this. I'm going to give the Elites the win on this one too, mostly because of the sound options not necessarily over quality of the sound signature. Isolation: This is an easy victory for the Elites. AirPods have virtually none unless you have REALLY small ears and have them jammed in there. The Jabra Elite has traditional earbud tips that come in three different sizes and provide a nice seal that passively blocks a lot of noise. This lets you enjoy your music a bit more and you can listen to it at a lower volume since it isn't competing with other noise. The good thing about the different size tips is that you can mix and match with them. I have a small tip on the right earbud and a medium on the left since my ear canals are different sizes. That being said, many people don't like earbuds with tips that go into your ear canal because they find them uncomfortable, I am usually one of those people (which is one of the reasons I like the AirPods) but these tips seem to be soft enough and well sized and I haven't had any problems so far. You get a good enough seal without having to really cram them in your ears so that is a nice plus. Active Use: Another win for the Elites. Apple AirPods stay in my ears better than I thought they would but I have had them fall out many times while doing yard work, exercise, and sometimes just walking around. The fit of the Elites is snug enough that this is not a problem. I have yet to have them come out even when cranking hard on an elliptical machine (which is probably the most jarring of the activities I do on a regular basis). Also, the Jabra Elites are IP55 rated that gives them considerable dust and moisture resistance. Now I wouldn't wear these in a dust storm and you sure a heck can't submerge them but they can take the elements far better than AirPods. If you have always wondered about IP ratings I have attached a handy little graphic that breaks it down for you. The Sport version of these are IP56 so they are a bit more moisture resistant. Charging Case: This one goes to Apple. The AirPod case is smaller, holds more of a charge (24 hours), and therefore can recharge the earbuds through more cycles. That being said, they Jabra case is much smaller than I expected and has one really good feature and that is the snap lock. The magnetic latch on the AirPods sometimes doesn't keep the headphones tightly set and I've had several times where one of the AirPods doesn't charge while the other one does. The lid on the Jabra Elite case holds the earbuds down on their charging connectors consistently and well so this is not a worry. While the Jabra case may not hold as much juice, what it does have is going to reliably charge your Elites. Call Quality: This one is a tie. My wife says that I sound better through both the AirPods and Elites than I do just talking though my phone normally. The sound isolation on the Elites though makes it easier to make out softer talking from those calling you. Bluetooth Connectivity: Again, a tie. Both have solid connections to my iPhone and other devices and I have yet to have a dropped signal from either. The AirPods seamlessly hook up to all of my Apple devices without any work from me but the pairing with the Jabra Elite is easy as well (it's just not 'magical' like the AirPod sync). The Jabra Elites are on the new Bluetooth 5 spec but I have yet to determine a difference between it and the version 4 on the AirPods but perhaps as more devices support it (my phone does not), it may be more of an issue. Controls: This one is a win for Apple. This is only because there is one glaring problem with the Jabras and that is that they aren't gesture control or just touches but are actual button presses. The buttons can sometime be hard to actuate and have the unfortunate side-effect of forcing the earbud into my ear. For someone who really does not like that sensation, it can be a problem. That being said there are a lot more controls that are available through the button presses than are available for the AirPods. Also, I have an Apple Watch and control my AirPods with it, so that has always been really seamless for me so I have to give this one to Apple. This would be different if Jabra would change from actual button presses to taps. I would be ok with the loss of some control features to not have to push the Elites into my ears to get a good actuation. Overall: The Jabra Elite 65t is probably they best wireless earbud out there now and it is going to take a lot for anyone to push them off the top of that hill. Across the board they either meet or exceed the quality of Apple AirPods and absolutely destroy any other wireless earbuds that I've tried. These are an outstanding choice for anyone and I highly recommend them. I think it would almost be impossible to be disappointed in them. I don't say that about many things.

    Truly the ELITE Earbuds

    |
    Posted .

    Jabra Elite 65t Setup/Testing/Conclusion I have to first say… I am quite impressed with Jabra on creating the Elite 65t. When I first saw the box I really liked the packaging. Jabra made the box standout with the yellow color that you’ll typically see with other Jabra products. Some of the text on the box is silver so it gives it that “premium” look. Jabra didn’t overdo it because they only made the Elite and one side of the box text silver. Once you break the seal on the bottom of the packaging and pull the yellow box out, you’re prompted with a little grey tab to pull out which discloses the “Welcome to Superior Sound” card. On that card you’ll be able to see the earbuds through a hole. Once you remove that card you’ll gain access to the Elite 65t, the charging box, need help contact sheet, get started booklet, usb charging cable, and of course extra ear gels. For those of you that require different size ear gels; Jabra provides you with a small, medium, and large (medium installed by default). I personally didn’t have any problems at all with the already installed medium ear gels. Getting started was honestly pretty simple and straightforward. I took a look at the get started booklet for reference but found that I got a better understanding of how everything works after downloading the app. The app you want to download is the Jabra Sound+ app. After, you’ll be able to download the Jabra Service app. Please note that the Jabra Service app is not a standalone app! Make sure you download the Jabra Sound+ app. After downloading the two apps I paired the Elite 65t with my Google Pixel phone without any issues whatsoever. Within the app, you’ll be able to set the voice assistant which is on default or you could select Amazon Alexa. When clicking on Audio experience you’ll be able to change settings of HearThrough, Auto Pause, and Headset Prompts. HearThrough basically gives you the ability to have it off where no audio from your surroundings will be transmitted to your headset. Or you can set it to Mix or on and customize the way you want it. AutoPause works where if you remove one earbud from your ear, audio will pause. Headset Prompts basically gives you verbal headset prompts, pretty straightforward there. Other things you can customize is the call experience like call audio, caller ID or even the Sidetone. If you don’t know what Sidetone is, it’s basically where you can hear your own voice when on a call; I set mine to off. The last thing you can customize is the Equalizer. Don’t forget! If you need to change the language for guidance; Jabra gives you the ability to change it to either Deutsch, English, Francais, or Chinese. I must say, the Elite 65t is definitely customizable. I like the fact that the app can control so many things. But what helped me out the most personally is having the ability to reference the actual user manual within the app. So instead of looking at a paper instruction manual or downloading the PDF manual online, I was able to reference to it within the app at any given moment; which I did quite often. Using the Jabra Elite 65t was fantastic. The earbuds fit into my ear snug and didn’t cause any discomfort at all. My coworker mentioned that it looked just a little bit bulky in his opinion. I personally felt like it wasn’t a problem at all. The sound quality when playing music was fantastic. The earbuds did a great job with blocking out people around me (when working in an office). I tested the Elite 65t by making a couple calls and the receiving end said that I was clear and could barely hear any noise around me. I tested this because I work near the airport runway along with having my window rolled down and driving while talking to someone. The button placement on the earbuds are also not a problem for me. Left earbud basically controls the volume along with being able to skip songs. Right earbud is the “master” earbud I guess you could say. It functions by pausing music, holding it down to access your voice assistant, hanging up phone calls, or even turning off the earbuds. I like the fact that the Elite 65t comes with the portable on-the-go charging case. So the earbuds alone can operate up to 5 hours of use, with the charging case; you’ll get a total of 15 hours. The portable charging case basically gives you 2 full charges, meaning 5 hours (earbuds) + 5 hours (case) + 5 hours (case) gives you a total of 15 hours. I didn’t have any problems loading the earbuds into the case and plugging it into my PC with the included charging cable. In conclusion; the only thing I would’ve liked to see is instead of the USB charging cable, a USB C cable instead. Only reason why is because a lot of electronics are moving to USB C now. It’s just flat out better… Nonetheless, Jabra has truly done an excellent job on the Elite 65t. Everything from packaging, to sound quality (input and output), to materials used was really thought out by Jabra. The Elite 65t definitely reached and exceeded my expectations. I will continue to use the Elite 65t on the daily and tune everybody out at work while jamming to some music. Don’t forget ladies and gentlemen!

    I was looking to buy a pair of Bluetooth earbuds for my iPhone but was unsure of what to buy. Prices were all over the board and wouldnt even know if I would like them. A friend of mine let me borrow his airpods and although I liked them and the features, they wouldn't stay comfortably in my ear and would easily fall out of my ears. I saw these during the 2018 CES convention and was intrigued. It had all the same features as the airpods plus a little more so I pre-ordered them and received them prior to the release date. I cannot express the how happy I am with this decision. - These stay in my ears comfortably no matter what I do. - Although they aren't noise canceling, they do block out some sound with a touch of a button. This way you can make them closed (where you hear only what you're listening to) or open (where you can also listen to sound around you) - The included app has a great equalizer and has constant updates to software and firmware. - They're loud - they pair with 2 devices (but can only listen to one at a time. I cannot recommend these earbuds highly enough!

    The best True Wireless Earbuds

    I love this earbuds! This is the true definition of brilliant engineering. Same caliber as Bose. It comes with an app for both iOS/Android and you can set the equalizer to whatever mood you wish. The most amazing feature is the microphone. The Elite 65t has 4 microphones making your conversation with the other party seamless and very very clear. You’ll never regret it. The price is even more affordable. Will keep these earbuds till it breaks... question is how??

    Pros Sleek and does not stand out for completely wire free Autopause pauses thesong automatically when an earbud is removed Options for noise isolating or mixing outside sounds Good sound quality and reasonably balanced IP55 dust and water resistant Quick and easy pairing process on iOS Cons Earbuds don’t feel secure with sweat or when cold Pressing buttons requires pressing earbud hard into your ear While sound quality is good it sounds flat and equalizer can’t fix it Options for mixing outside sounds miss some important low frequency sounds Ambient sound option causes cycling of earbuds on and off following sound on Android Call recipients report frequent microphone dropout with wind noises Poor cross body signal quality causing sound dropout for some Instructions are confusing of what app to use and multiple apps are required on Android No earbud tracking or find option Charging case finger slot is too small for opening for those with short fingernails Charging case has no flat surfaces for laying down The Jabra Elite 65t true wireless headphones join an increasing number of wire free headphones. Included are four microphones to improve call quality while reducing unwanted noises. The earbuds are noise isolating but include an adjustable setting in the software to allow outside noises as needed for safety. Connectivity is by the latest Bluetooth 5.0 to allow high quality sound and more stable connections. Included is Alexa as a voice assistant or you can use your phones default assistant. Total listening time is rated at 15 hours with included charging carrying case. The Elite 65t also comes in an active variant, which is nearly identical to the standard 65t. The design of the Jabra Elite 65t is very sleek, particularly for true wireless headphones. Most of the body of the earbuds stays hidden inside the ear canal with only a relatively small portion visible. The earbuds are held in place with a rubberized tip, which is said to have a special coating to improve grip. You put them in your ear with a slight twisting motion to lock them in place. It sounds nice but in practice, the earbuds loosen from moisture from sweating or if you ears become cold from being outside on a cold day. Fortunately, it is easy to tell when they become loose to correct them but considering their compact size, you might find yourself worried you would lose them. Unfortunately, unlike some other brands that keep a track of the earbuds via GPS on your phone and list where they lost connectivity these include no such feature. They also do not include a feature to ring the buds to assist in finding them as some other true wireless earbuds include. If you drop them and do not realize it, there is no GPS log to the rescue or other tools to help you find them. Starting with setup, the instructions say to install the Jabra app on your on your phone. When using an iPhone this is not even necessary since the moment you pair the phone it tells you it needs an app and even sends you directly to the app store to install it. Very easy to use. On Android, the process is more manual. You must search for the Jabra app as indicated only to discover there are multiple Jabra apps, none of which match the name you are given. The app you need to install is actually called Jabra Sound+ in the Play Store but you aren’t done once you install this. After installed Jabra Sound+ you will receive a message stating you need to install Jabra Services. Once installed the confusion does not end. If you look later on your phone for the Jabra Sound+ you don’t find it. Instead, the app is called Sound+. Overall the setup experience on Android feels less refined and in need of updates. Once you have the earbuds, set up you will find the app has options to choose your voice assistant. The options are to use Alexa or your phone’s default voice assistant. A section called Audio experience allows to you to adjust such settings such as how much ambient noise you want played through the earbuds, if you would like Autopause activated, and if you want headset prompts. Under Call Experience, there is a helpful feature where you can choose to hear some of your voice as you speak in calls or if you would like the Caller ID announced. An equalizer is available for some basic tuning of sound with options to adjust the 60Hz, 250Hz, 1KHz, 4KHz, and 7.5KHz ranges. Battery level is listed in the app but unfortunately the earbuds do not announce battery level on start. Overall, the app is simple to navigate and offers a good selection of settings for most people. Continuing the split experience for Android and iOS users, sound quality and connection stability is different for each. Using an iPhone 6, music quality is good and mixing of outside sounds happens uniformly in each ear. When using a Galaxy S8+ sound quality sounds more of what can be best described as flat and the mixing of outside sounds results in an odd left to right cycling at random times. It not that music sounded bad using an Android phone. It just seemed to lack body. This seems to be related to the way the earbuds work with Android since more than one GS8+ was tried as well as other older Android phones lying around. It seems Jabra needs to optimize how they work with Android more. A problem common regardless of phone was cross body signal quality. If you kept your phone in your pocket and bent over the thickness of your leg could block enough signal to cause dropouts. The adjustment for ambient noise still needs fine tuning as well. Traditional earbuds that naturally allow ambient noise allow a small amount of all noises through. The electronic version in the 65t seems to favor allowing high pitch noises while blocking deeper noises. This means that when outside the noise of crickets will blend straight in with your music while a car passing by or a person with a deep voice will be inaudible. For safety reasons, this needs fine-tuning. If Jabra could improve this, the largest flaw would be a non-issue. Just as the earbuds are surprisingly small for the feature set, the charging case is small as well. The earbuds are rated to work for 5 hours on the integrated batteries with the charging case allowing two additional charges for a total of 15 hours of playback. The case can be easily stored in back. The inside is lined with a soft plastic. The earbuds light up on a successful connection to the charging case. On the outside of the case is a single status light. The case is rounded on all edges, which makes placing it on a flat surface awkward. You could stand it on end but that also does not seem correct. It feels that Jabra, in order to create a sleek and smooth design, forgot you might want to actually place it on a flat surface. This is of course a small gripe but an important one to mention nonetheless. Overall, the Jabra Elite 65t true wireless earbuds are a decent offering that, with software refinement, could make a very compelling case for anyone who wants to get rid of the cables without spending a fortune. If you are an iPhone user, they can already be a good option and would be rated 4 out of 5. For Android users the decision is less certain without some updates and would be rated 2 out of 5.

    These Stand Apart From the Rest of the Industry.

    |
    Posted .

    This model of true wireless headphones are a great addition to my "must have with me" items. Where Jabra stands apart from the rest of the industry is in it's HearThrough setting, found in it's Sound+ app. This enables you to hear your surroundings while listening to you music. I use it for while I'm shopping or walking. It enables you to be safe while still jamming out to your tunes. I think the bass response in these headphones is about par for their compact size. The specs of this set offers up 5 hours in the headphone and a extra 10 hours stored in the case. I tested several times at around 4.5 hours in the headphones with about 9 hours of standby power in the case. As with anything battery operated, every use case is different. I really appreciate the overall form factor of these headphones, they are comfortable and are not very big when they are in your ear. These headphones set themselves apart from several other brands with having a volume button on the left earbud. The three things I wish they had included, a little bit of grip or texture on the headphones themselves. I constantly feel like I'm going to drop them, A magnet in the case to grab a hold of the headphones when you are placing them into it to charge, I feel it takes a few seconds to make sure they are lined up in the case before closing the lid. Finally I also would like for the case to have a battery reserve indicator. It has a light showing when they are charging, but a set of four lights just giving you a quick idea of when you should charge the case again would be nice. These three things are absolutely just ideas maybe for the next version, I can live with the overall design of these Jabra Elite 65t True Wireless Earbud headphones. I would recommend them to a friend or family member.

    Outstanding earbuds.

    Posted .

    Compared to other manufacturers, Plantronics generally isn't associated with good quality headphones. However, after using these earbuds for a little while, I can say that these are on par, if not better than a lot of other manufacturer earbuds. Quite surprising actually as these are great all around earbuds. I have a pair Bose Soundsport earbuds that I've been using for awhile. Very nice and lives up to Bose quality. Compared to these, the 65t's are, again, quite impressive. As far as sound quality, these are very good and offer a great mix of highs/lows. Personally, I wish the bass had a little more thump to it but not a huge thing. Mids and highs are very clear and crisp and volume is good as well. Size/portability. While both the 65ts and Bose are small and compact, the 65ts have the edge here as they're smaller than the Bose earbuds/case. The case for the 65t is about half the size of the Bose which isn't a big issue however, it is nicer that these can fit in even the smallest pocket you have. One of my biggest complaints with the Bose earbuds is how they stick out of your ear when you wear them. Looks a tad strange but this is more a personal preference. This is not the case with the 65ts. They sit almost flush in my ear. The fit on these is very good and I don't have any concerns about them falling out or anything. Call quality. These have the ability to take calls and people on the other end of the line can't even tell I'm using earbuds. The call quality is quite clear however I did have a couple pauses during my call. I'll blame that on the bluetooth connection but just something to note. And these also have the ability to interact with Alexa which, I presume, is nice. I don't have Alexa (I have Google) so I'm unable to test this aspect of the earbuds. I imagine though it would be quite convenient to interact with Alexa in this fashion. Overall, I'm thoroughly impressed with these and I think they're great for working out, out and about or for whatever. The compact size and good battery life will just about appeal to anyone and the sound quality will be more than adequate for any time of music listener.

    Absolute HOME RUN!

    Posted .

    After trying the Jaybird Run, Sony MDR-1000X, unreleased Sony WF-SP700N (during CES 2018), the B&O BeoPlay E8, the Apple AirPods, and the Samsung IconX 2018, I can tell you these are the best totally wireless earbuds on the market. I work in the tech industry and have high expectations for sound quality, fit, and connection stability. These earphones seem to check all the boxes. Rich sound and bass settle comfortably into your ear without "ear wings" or hooks. Controls are intuitive and offer all the necessities including volume, seek fwd/back, and play/pause. The charging case is compact and sleek. Went on a run today in a busy city environment with lots of BT radio interference and they were flawless, though they almost slipped out once. My only complaints so far are the fit is snug but maybe not quite as secure as the Jaybird Run. Otherwise they are phenomenal. Jabra, you've earned a new fan. Will keep this review updated as I spend more time with the product.

    The left ear bud stopped playing sound after 5 months. Volume control still worked just no sound The right earbud never really fit well even thought I pitched after market modifications for it.

    Great sound, comfortable IF they fit

    |
    Posted .

    It was great to find headphones that you don't have to worry about a wire dangling around your neck or the bulkiness of over the head headphones, and they even work great for working out... assuming they actually fit in your ear. When I first tried them out, they fit perfectly with the earbuds provided but also came with several other size ear bud plastic pieces if they don't initially fit in your ear. PROS: Let me start off by saying they actually sound really good, were very comfortable, easy to set up and have most of the options you need on the earbuds themselves (power, volume, answer/hang up, etc.). The Jabra application for the headphones allows you to use the equalizer to adjust the sound to your liking. The case for storing and charging them is very compact and convenient to use and allows you to charge the headphones without finding an outlet. CONS: After trying them out, I asked my wife to try them because they sounded great and I wanted to see if she liked them. She is small to average size so I didn't think that would be an issue and, if so, we could swap out the buds for them to fit a smaller ear. The larger part of the unit, not the ear bud part, would not even come close to fitting in her ear and just fell out. That eliminated any chance of selling her on them because they flat out wouldn't work. Now that I know my wife can't steal them for her own personal use, which may actually be a bonus for some people, I have to warn people before buying them that this may be an issue, especially if you're considering buying them for smaller people or teenagers. Other than that they impressed for not only the sound but the portability, convenience and if you don't want giant headphones wrapped around your head or a wire dangling in the way. If you have an option, you may want to try before you buy or make sure you buy from somewhere that has a good return policy.

    Excellent execution

    |
    Posted .

    Jabra's 3rd generation truly wireless earphones are excellently executed. One of the few, and my first Bluetooth 5.0 headphones, are IP55 dust and sweat resistant. Batteries last about five hours and the case provides two extra charges. They come with four microphones (two per unit) for excellent voice calls and noise conditioning. The earphones come with three sizes of ear tips and provide a tight but comfortable fit, with a closed design for passive noise cancellation. The sound is very natural and detailed. Through the companion phone app, there is a five-band equalizer. Earpieces are relatively light and stay on. I find it comfortable to wear through the day. The left earpiece has two controls for volume and tracks, the right piece has a single button for play/pause and calls. Pairing with an iPhone was straightforward, with good range and no drops. Newer phones with BT 5.0 can have better range and power efficiency. IPhone 8 and X supports BT 5.0, but not required. Works perfectly with older phones as well. It can connect to two devices at the same time. While the phone provides a battery indicator for the earphones, the Jabra Sound+ app provides detailed battery info, the five-band EQ, lets you select the voice assistant when pressing the multi-function button on the right earpiece: Siri or Google depending on the phone or Amazon's Alexa (Not yet enabled on iOS), and very neat features like HearThrough and Sidetone: HearThrough: While the headphones provide passive noise cancellation, HearThrough uses the microphones to let some of the external sounds in. This is turned on or off by double-tapping the multi-function button or through the app, which lets adjust the amount of audio through. Sidetone: When on a call, adjusts how much of your own voice is fed back through the earphones. Audio calls work great. With the four mics, it isolates wind noise. Then the little details is what makes these excellent earphones great. When taking the earphones off the case, they start pairing with the phone, and they turn off when back on the case. Then when the earphones are in close proximity of each other (ie in the ears) it resumes playing music. It pauses the music if one takes one of the earpieces off, and resumes again if back within a few seconds. The case is small enough to fit in one hand. It has an LED next to the charge port to indicate charge levels, and another indicator between the earpieces that indicates their charge. GN/Jabra is a Danish company that has been designing professional products for as long as I can remember, and their attention to detail and quality shows in this product.

    Great Buds! Case is just OK.

    Posted .

    Pros: * Sound great! * Work great for phone calls/voice assistants. * Fit snugly and don’t fall out. * Solid wireless connection. * Great battery life (5hrs plus 2 full recharges in the case). * Compact carrying case. Cons: * Case is not easy to open - especially one-handed. * Battery status indicators for buds and case are not clear. * Buds easily fall out of case when the lid is open. Ok - so the pros listed above are crucial to wireless earbuds and the cons are really just minor complaints, but what good is a product review if both the good and bad weren’t mentioned? These buds have it where it counts in sound quality, fit and battery life. Rather than compare them to other brands and models, I’ll just say that I really like these buds. So far, the audio has been rock-solid and any disconnection was due to major wireless interference nearby or my phone just being too far away; the same reasons for disconnection with any Bluetooth earbuds. The case is nice and compact, but that is the only really good thing I can say about it. Firstly, the lid is impossible to open one-handed by attempting to flick the lid open with a finger. Even when holding the case with one hand and opening with the other hand, the lid is really tough to open without accidentally flinging the buds onto the floor. A magnetic clasp would probably have worked better than the typical friction tab. Once the lid is open, the buds rest precariously in their holes on top of springy pogo-pins. A slight tip of the case will send them tumbling to the floor - so be careful. Perhaps a deeper hole or magnets would have held them in the case a little better. The second thing I don’t really love about the case is the way it shows the battery status. When you open the lid to the case, there is a small LED between the buds that shows the battery status of the pair of buds by color. This LED has a few issues; those who cannot discern color or can’t see the color in bright light will be at a loss. This LED also stays on for only about 3 seconds so if you miss it, you’re out of luck until you can check their status elsewhere (phone’s status bar or bud feedback when inserted in your ears). The case also has another LED to indicate how much of a recharge it can give the buds (their extra 2 recharges). Same issues as the inside status indicator (color, brightness and short duration) but the case’s LED is on the bottom edge so you have to close the lid and quickly flip the case over to see the light which is, again, only on for about 3 seconds. These case issues are really minor nits because the buds themselves sound, fit and work great and the case is merely a “bonus.” I would definitely not disregard these buds just because of some small design issues with the case, but if Jabra were to improve the case just a bit, these buds would get 5 stars.

    Love these ear buds

    |
    Posted .

    I have really fallen in love with these ear buds. They are super comfortable to wear and they sound really good too. Phone conversations are crisp and clear and the other party had no problems hearing me in loud environments. In order for the sound to be its best, I did have to swap out the medium size ear gels with the small gels, but your ears will be different and you just have to try out which works. The directions that come with the ear buds are lacking and they tell you to download the "Jabra app", the only problem with that is there are a bunch of Jabra apps and the one I originally downloaded, did not work properly. Jabra support guided me to the correct app. I had to get the Jabra Sound+ app, and also get the Jabra Service that runs in the background. I am not a big fan of that part, but if you have a modern phone, you probably won't notice a slow down. In the app you can adjust the settings of the ear buds such as pass thru sound (which allows you to hear your surroundings), equalizer, call experience, and voice assistant (alexa or the one your phone has built in). You can also view the battery life and the connection status of each ear bud. The included charging case is very nifty, but it is a bit difficult to open. It will also charge up the ear buds up to three additional times and add that to the rated 5 hour battery life then you can easily use these pretty much all day with a few charging breaks. As I mentioned before, they fit really snug and comfortable and I have received a few complements on them so far. The price is reasonable as well for what you are getting.

    Jabra Elite 65t

    The headphones look and feel premium when you first open the box. It includes the charging case with headphones, charging cable and multiple gel eartips. For me they had charge left and when you first open the case they go into pairing mode and connected to my iphone almost instantly. The jabra sound plus app allows you to control a variety of things and has a simple and straightforward interface and very easy to use. The hear through function works pretty well and you can hear everything around you by amplifying the ambient sound.And finally you have custom equalizer settings which are so hard to find even in premium headsets. There is no drop or choppiness in audio with these at all with the bluetooth 5.0 support on these. The controls are physical and not touch which I prefer especially when using them with gloves and avoiding accidental presses. The sound from these is crisp and balanced and they work great when watching movies while traveling with no lag between the video and the audio track, The only issue I felt was missing noise cancellation feature and I hope jabra can add that to the next line. The battery life for me exceeded the advertised 5 hours as I got around 6 hours on a charge. The charging case is smaller than expected and provides around 10 extra charges. For now these seems to be the leader this year in true wireless headphones.

    Left Ear Bud Glitch

    |
    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 6 months when reviewed.

    The pair I bought $99 the left ear bud wouldn’t work after three months. Wouldn’t change. I contacted Jabra and after @20 emails and sending all original packaging along with receipt to them they agreed it was not working and sent me another new pair. Well guess what, this pair the left ear bud stop working as well. One day I mistakenly by happenstance put just the left earbud in the charger, it charged and now works. So now I have to charge the left ear bud first then put both of them in the charging case and then they both work. Not sure if this is happening to anyone else but download the Jabra app and that’s how I knew the left ear bud wasn’t working because the app indicated it wasn’t working. I’m using original charger with the original cord because Jabra kept asking me was I using the original charging cord with the charger and I was. Pro - the sound is very clear, music sounds really good, they are comfortable and speaking through them people can hear you very clearly and you can hear them, no interruption. So they are good quality just that glitch.

    Great sound quality! Bugs still present...

    Posted .

    Impressions: My initial impressions on these earbuds was "Wow these look high quality!" The packaging these come in is fantastic. The layout and overall look is very nice with a high quality feel. No complaints there. The earbuds and carrying case also feel of fairly high quality although the first time opening the case was a little tricky as the pressure you need to apply to the top half is not as it looked. I figured it out after the first time so not a big deal just was not as intuitive as I thought. The comfort of the earbuds themselves in the ear is next to the best I have tested also! They sit great in the ear and the ambient sound reduction is nearly of an noise cancelling over ear headphone, its that good! I didn't have any complaints until it came to the actual usage of the buds... Usage: Pairing to my LG G6 was simple, pair just like any other BT device. After that I downloaded the Jabra Sound+ app which also required the Jabra Service app. Done. The Sound+ app lets you adjust EQ settings, auto pause, HearThrough, and a few other features of the earbuds which is nice. The earbuds themselves have controls just like many others however the left bud has volume up/down control and also the forward/backwards selection while the right earbud is the play/pause and also the On/Off control of the set. After using them for a few days I noticed a couple reoccurring issues which is why these earbuds do not deserve the "5 Star" review. First of which is a fairly large one. I have not narrowed down what is causing the problem but while watching videos online or listening to music the earbuds will seemingly a studder or chopping playback after being paused and then resumed. I was unable to resolve the issue without having to turn the set off and back on. This was very annoying and has happened three times in the week or so I have been using them. Again not sure what is causing this playback issue but was very annoying. Another minor problem I have is the functionality of the left bud. Using the buttons on the left earbud is somewhat challenging and it can take a good amount of pressure to actually make the selection. This could lead to discomfort to the left earbud and then readjustment is needed etc. Pros: -Sound Quality (VERY good) -Noise Isolation -Charging Case Design -Attractive Design, not too bulky -Sound+ App -Call Quality -Bluetooth 5.0 Cons: -Occasional Jittery Playback (Described Above) -Earbud Controls (Left side) -Micro USB for Charging Case Overall: I would still recommend these earbuds as the sound quality these produce is quite amazing! The noise isolation and size just add the benefits that these offer. If you are in the market for this type of earbud then I would strongly consider taking a look at these.
