Jabra Elite 8 Active Review - TGH Technology and Business Portal/Blog

The Jabra Elite 8 Active was announced in September 2023, together with the Jabra Elite 10, the 7th generation of Jabra’s superior true wireless earbuds.  Jabra is a world leader in personal sound and hybrid work solutions. With 6 generations of true wireless earbuds models and designs under their belt, the 7th generation Jabra Elite 10 and Jabra Elite 8 Active takes up a notch higher than its predecessors. I was using the Jabra Elite 85T, it served me well, this was pretty much my main wireless earbuds even though I had other wireless earbuds brands. When I got the opportunity to hear the Jabra Elite 8 Active and Jabra Elite 10 wireless earbuds in action during the media event, I felt that the time was right for me to upgrade my next pair of Jabra wireless earbuds, to the Jabra Elite 8 Active. Let me share with you my thoughts and views inside my Jabra Elite 8 Active Review.

World toughest earbuds

They are great and ideal for those with an active sporting lifestyle, thanks to the durability. The Jabra Elite 8 Active earbuds pass all the required tests for US Military Standard for Ruggedised Electronics (810H).

What does that mean for users with an active sporting and outdoors lifestyle? The Jabra Elite 8 Active are completely watertight when submerged up to 1.5m, they are IP68 rated, that would mean that they are fully dust and waterproof. AS for the charging case, it is IP54 rated to be dust and splash proof.

The Jabra Elite 8 Active is tough and they are proud of it, yet that doesn’t mean they give up and compromise on sound quality and aesthetics. One of the new features is Dolby Audio, it’s powering the Jabra Elite 8 Active, delivering lifelike, clear sound for a longer and comfortable listening experience, complementing your sporting and active lifestyle.

The Jabra Elite 8 Active is powered by Jabra’s Adaptive Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), this automatically optimises the ANC performance to the environment that you are in. The Wind Neutralizing HearThrough (TM) technology also muffles any wind interference without blocking out traffic. This ensures your safety while you are listening, without compromising on steady sound.

My Review, Thoughts and Views of Jabra Elite 8 Active

First and foremost, let us take a walk back in time looking at Jabra’s 7 generations of superior true wireless earbuds (and still counting)

  1. Elite Sport
  2. Elite 65T / Elite Active 65T
  3. Elite 75T, Elite Active 75T
  4. Elite 85T
  5. Elite 5, Elite 4 Active, Elite 4, Elite 3,
  6.  Elite 7 Pro, Elite 7 Active
  7. Elite 8 Active, Elite 10

I started covering Jabra’s earbuds from Elite Active 65T till date. I previously had been using Jabra Elite 85T, it was my favourite and also my main wireless earbuds even when I had other earbuds brands with me (I eventually gave the rest away over time). Most recently, I retired my Jabra Elite 85T as my backup when the  Jabra Elite 8 Active took over as my main wireless earbuds.

Here are my key thoughts and views of Jabra Elite 8 Active:

  • Audio Quality – Jabra is a world leader in personal sound and hybrid work solutions. The audio quality is never in doubt, clear, crisp and clean, excellent when on call and chats.
  • For the Audiophile – More than just a personal sound solution for everyday use, the Jabra Elite 8 Active is an entertainment/lifestyle wireless earbuds too. For those audiophile, there is the Jabra+ app that allows you to customise with six music presets and music equaliser, you can customise it further if you like to do so.
  • Dolby Audio – A most welcome new and exciting feature for Jabra true wireless earbuds, giving them the entertainment/fun/lifestyle element boost, whether you are listening to your favourite songs on Spotify or watching your favourite movie/drama series.
  • Jabra Sound+ App – A useful and handy Jabra app that allows you to customise your Jabra device to suit your setup.
  • Spotify Tap – For Spotify users, you can get straight to your music with Spotify Tap feature on Jabra Elite 8 Active. Double press the left earbud to get Spotify playing right away. You can double press again to browse Spotify content just for you.
  • Adaptive Hybrid Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) – Jabra’s ANC is great, blocking out unwanted noise/sounds from the background. Sometimes, I don’t even realise that somebody is talking to me or calling out to me. If you wish to hear surrounding sounds (e.g. when walking or exercising) while you are wearing them, you can choose to activate Jabra HearThrough and customise this feature.
  • Lighter, Tougher and more Durable – The Jabra true wireless earbuds are light and tough. In this Jabra Elite 8 Active model, it got even lighter in weight, yet getting tougher and more durable.
  • Better and more Comfortable Fitting – One of the most underrated features of Jabra’s true wireless earbuds, the amount of R&D they gathered from users over the years. The Jabra Elite 8 Active wireless earbuds for me have an even more improved and more comfortable fitting, as compared to my Jabra Elite 85T wireless earbuds (the fitting was pretty good at that time in my personal humble opinion) that I had been using prior to the change in earbuds.

The Jabra Elite 8 Active is a trustworthy and reliable wireless earbuds, that suits users with an all rounder/active lifestyle, they strike a good balance for those with active sporting lifestyle and outdoors, while also taking care of your fun lifestyle/entertainment needs, powered by Dolby Audio. Last but not least, not to forget Jabra’s clear, crisp and clean sound quality that you would need in your daily communications in work and daily life.
