Jabra announced a new era of Elite earbuds

Jabra recently announced a new era of Elite earbuds with three new products to establish its new Elite true wireless line-up – the Elite Pro, Elite Active and core Elite lines. Jabra’s reinvention means that they are pushing boundaries in the areas of call technology, in-ear fit, audio experience and design.

Jabra Elite 7 Pro

New Jabra Additions

The new Jabra additions include the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, this is a new revolutionary product that features Jabra MultiSensor VoiceTM technology, offering best-in-class call performance. Jabra is also releasing the Elite 7 Active with pioneering ShakeGripTM coating, perfect for those active lifestyles. Finally, the third addition to the range is the Jabra Elite 3, which brings fantastic sound while on-the-go to a wide audience. This redefined Elite range signifies the latest breakthrough in true wireless technology: each one is specifically engineered to reinvent the true wireless experience as you know it by introducing new and unique technologies optimised for specific use cases in a sleek and modern design.

Jabra Elite 7 Pro

Jabra is one of the first companies to introduce true wireless technology, it has taken them six generations worth of learning and reinventing their true wireless to better fit with the needs of today’s millions of true wireless users.

  • Jabra’s new Pro category is designed for those who want the best of the best for calls and music, allowing users to experience true wireless without limits.
  • Jabra’s Active category is tailored for sports and active lifestyles and the earbuds are specifically engineered to stay put when you swear.
  • Jabra’s Elite 3 makes up part of Jabra’s core category, a new standard for entry-level, for the on-the-go sound.
Jabra Elite 7 Active

Jabra MultiSensor VoiceTM 

The introduction of innovative Jabra MultiSensor VoiceTM technology for the Elite 7 Pro delivers ultimate call clarity, even in the noisiest places. More people are connecting through voice: Voice calling increased year on year in 2021, and is the number two use case after music**. Jabra MultiSensor VoiceTM combines a bone conduction sensor, four microphones and algorithms to ensure crystal clear calls. Jabra’s expertise in developing intelligent algorithms resulted in the engineering of one of the first consumer earbuds that use this hybrid technology.

A cutting-edge voice pick-up (VPU) sensor in both earbuds makes Jabra MultiSensor VoiceTM so effective. The intelligent algorithms constantly analyse the types of noise being picked up by the built-in microphones, and when they detect wind noise, they automatically activate the VPU sensor. Bone conduction technology is used to transmit voice via the vibrations in the jawbone, and the intelligent algorithm then uses the best combination of the bone conduction sensor and microphones to transmit the best call clarity.

In addition, adjustable Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) creates a fully immersive experience. Sound can be personalised even further by creating a personalised audio profile with Jabra MySound technology and using HearThrough – a technology that allows the user to define exactly how much outside noise they want to let in.

The Elite 7 Pro earbuds are 16 per cent smaller than the hugely popular Jabra Elite 75t, which are Jabra’s smallest earbuds so far. By leveraging Jabra’s database of 62,000 unique ear scans, the technology pioneer was able to create a map of the average human ear and use the insight to totally redesign the earbud. Then, after excessive testing, Jabra has been able to produce an earbud that offers exceptional sound quality and optimised comfort.

The all-encompassing earbuds come with nine hours non-stop play time with ANC and 35 hours with case charging, with fast charging that delivers 1.2 hrs of power in just 5 minutes. The Elite 7 Pro comes with Alexa built-in, Siri and Google Assistant* (*Android only).

Jabra Elite 3

Jabra ShakeGripTM technology

For those who are looking for the best fit for an active lifestyle, the Jabra Elite 7 Active is specifically engineered to suit them. Save for the Multisensor Voice technology, the Active version features the same top-quality experience as the Elite 7 Pro, with four built-in microphones for call technology and an additional two for personalisation plus adjustable ANC. In addition, based on Jabra’s unique understanding of the ear, the use of liquid silicone rubber, and a wing free design, the new Elite 7 Active with ShakeGrip coating is designed to give the ultimate fit whatever your movements, changing the way people work out. For those who want to go outside whilst being active, the microphone mesh removes wind from calls, whilst the performance boosting audio ensures a powerful workout music experience.

Jabra Elite 7 Active

Jabra Elite 3

The Jabra Elite 3 is the perfect choice for those seeking a rich sound, powerful bass and clear calls at a lower price point. After recognising a gap in the market for a lower price earbud that still offers exceptional sound quality, Jabra has used its years of experience to make great sound an option for everyone. The earbuds are engineered to bring music to life with 6mm speakers and deliver crystal clear calls with 4-microphone call technology, a class-leading music equaliser, inclusion of Qualcomm aptXTM HD audio and seven hours of battery life (28 hours including the charging case). The earbuds offer outstanding noise isolation and with HearThrough awareness, users can tap into the sounds of their surroundings. Elite 3 also comes with an all-day comfortable and secure fit, sleek Danish design and in a new range of colours including Dark Grey, Navy, Lilac and Light Beige.

Jabra Elite 3

We are thrilled to announce our new Elite range, which is a perfect combination of premium-ness comfort and stand-out features such as MultiSensor Voice, ShakeGrip technology, delivering an unmatched call and music experience.

Jabra Elite 75t review

The Jabra Elite 75t was announced earlier in January 2020, their fourth generation true wireless earbuds. I saw it at the media event held in Singapore and I was impressed with its form factor and design, lightweight and improved audio experience.  Having previously reviewed Jabra Elite Active 65t, I have knowledge and experience of the Jabra audio quality standards. When the opportunity came up to do the Jabra Elite 75t review, I took it up since it’s a good continuation from where I left off with the Jabra Elite Active 65t.

Now let me bring you through my Jabra Elite 75t review experiences, thoughts and views. 

Aesthetics

When I first saw the Jabra Elite 75t in January, the size of the earbuds and charging case caught my attention. It’s smaller and lighter in weight as compared to the Jabra Elite Active 65t that I had previous experience using. The ergonomic shape design makes it look sleek, contoured nicely for the ears.

During my review, the Jabra Elite 75t feels secure and fits very nicely into my ears (although I do need the largest silicon ear gel as my left ear lobe doesn’t fit in as well as compared to my right ear). Using it for communication, meetings, walks and runs, the lightweight and small form factor is a great plus point.

The Jabra Elite 75t earbuds is IP55 rated protection from dust and water, it comes with a 2-year warranty against dust and water damage.

Audio/Sound

The audio/sound segment, whether you are looking at the Jabra Elite 75t from a work/communications perspective, leisure use or both, the audio quality is a key factor, might be the main and first aspect of the Jabra Elite 75t that users look into first.

Bass – The bass has improved, it’s stronger and you can feel the boom. Listening to rock music with the Jabra Elite 75t is nice and feels good!

Mid Range – It’s clear, detailed and natural, without being too overwhelming bright or underwhelming dull.

Treble – Another improvement from my experience with the Jabra Elite Active 65t, it makes listening to music with the Jabra Elite 75t a fun, enjoyable and all round experience. Although when I push the volume button up too high, the pitch gets a bit too high and sharp for my ears.

Overall, the audio quality of the Jabra Elite 75t is good, the improvements are significant from the earlier model Elite 65t series. There are times whereby you can hear and feel the 3D surround sound effects when listening to music on the Jabra Elite 75t.

Conferencing/Meetings with Zoom / Teams

For working professionals who now have to use more of technology and apps such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams, no thanks to the Covid-19 situation with many of us having to work from home. Being true wireless, without any wires attached to your laptop, tablet or smartphone, it makes your video conferencing or meetings less of a hassle, along with clear and sharp communication when you are using the Jabra Elite 75t.

Phone chat

Clear and sharp, thanks to the 4 microphone call technology inside the Jabra Elite 75t. The design, lightweight and secure features make it comfortable for lengthy phone chats.

Technology

Bluetooth Connection

Bluetooth pairing is very fast and can connect to 2 devices at one time and you can pair up to 8 devices.

Jabra Sound+ App

Having previously reviewed the Jabra Elite Active 65t, I am familiar with the Jabra Sound+ App, its capabilities and functions. You can choose from three modes, My Moment / Commute / Focus. Commute would be ideal when you are on the move, riding on public transport, while Focus would be ideal for yourself at work or when you need some quiet time. There is also the battery life indicator  on the top right corner of the app that keeps track of your earbuds battery levels.

This is also the place whereby you can control the other technological functions and capabilities of the Jabra Elite Active 65t, the Voice Assistant whereby you can have instant access to your voice assistant (from Amazon Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant) direct to your earbuds.

The ability to personalise and customise my audio settings is something that I like a lot. You can control the other technological functions and capabilities of the Jabra Elite 75t, the Voice Assistant whereby you can have instant access to your voice assistant (from Amazon Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant) direct to your earbuds.

For the music lovers/audiophiles, there are six music presets that you can choose from the following:

Neutral, Bass boost, Smooth, Speech, Treble boost and Energise

With these six music presets, you can choose to use their presets or customise your audio listening experience further to suit your listening preferences. For the audiophiles, this would suit you nicely. 

On my iPad Air 3, the Jabra Sound+ App looks nice on a big screen, you can rotate into landscape mode too!

HearThrough

HearThrough is one of the technological capabilities built inside the Jabra Elite 75t. On the Jabra Sounds+ App, you can control and filter the level of sounds that surrounds you, just by switching between On / Off. When you switch it on, you can select how much of the outside world that you would like to let in, just by adjusting the slider.

There are times whereby we would love listening to music without any external sound distraction, there also times whereby we would also need to be aware of our surroundings e.g. listening to music on the move and we need to be aware of our surroundings.

Jabra’s passive noise cancellation is pretty impressive, it isolates the outside noise, giving you a wonderful audio experience, in a musical/working world of your own, at the comfort of your home or own office space.

It’s a great feature, just a word of caution, to switch on HearThrough when you go out for sports/exercises such as running or when you are commuting from place to place whereby you do need to be safe and aware of the surroundings.

Thoughts and views

Lightweight, fitting  and comfortable for the ears. The audio quality is good, great for communication at work or leisure, sharp and clear. For listening to music, it has improved from the Jabra Elite 65t that I previously reviewed, stronger bass and improved treble/highs.

The Jabra Elite 75t is lighter and smaller as compared to previous generation Jabra Elite Active 65t, charging case is smaller and lighter in weight too.

The Jabra Elite 75t is a worthy consideration for a working/business in-ear true wireless earbuds and just as suitable for leisure music listening. A pair of well designed and tested earphones that looks nice on you too.

I would like to thank Jabra Singapore and GLOO PR for the opportunity to review the Jabra Elite 75t in-ear true wireless earbuds.

Jabra Elite Active 75t

Jabra, a leader in personal sound and office solutions, recently announced a new true wireless earbuds to their lineup, the Jabra Elite Active 75t. This is the active lifestyle edition of the recently announced Jabra Elite 75t that was launched in January 2020. Having reviewed the Jabra Elite Active 65t previously, when I saw the Jabra Elite 75t in January 2020 and the upcoming Jabra Elite Active 75t, this two new Jabra true wireless earbuds look impressive for its size, weight and battery life.

For the active and sporty lifestyle person, it’s also ideal for daily leisure users too. The Elite Active 75t features an IP57 rating with a 2-year warranty against sweat and dust*. With up to 7.5 hours of battery life from a single charge and up to 28 hours in total on the go, most users do not need to worry about the battery depleting before their workout finishes. The Elite Active 75t also comes with rubberised coating which provides enhanced grip when worn. This allows the earbuds to stay in the ears more securely during workouts.

No better fit for sport

Jabra developed a comfort and fit simulation model based on thousands of ear scans from global users to determine the most optimal 3D shape and size, that fits ears comfortably across a range of users. Taking it one step further, Jabra also collated valuable insights on user needs and preferences to determine the primary barriers to a true wireless experience.

Noise isolation

The earbuds were also designed to further enhance comfort through its optimal earbud shape and size, which also provides a first-class noise isolation.

The user also has the option to listen to their environment without having to take out the earbuds or pause the audio. With a single tap on the left earbud, they can activate the HearThrough function which allows them to listen to what’s going on nearby while still having the earbuds on and even if there is audio playing. 

Xuanling Lu, Jabra’s Regional Product Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific, said, “When it comes to working out, we understand that users need their earbuds to fit securely, have long battery life and protection from sweat, dust and water. The Elite Active 75t is the result of our dedication in listening and catering to the needs of our users.”

Introducing Jabra MySound

Jabra Elite 75t

Jabra, a world leader in personal sound as well as office solutions, recently announced their fourth generation true wireless earbuds – Jabra Elite 75t. At the media event held in Singapore, we had the opportunity to learn, know and have a close up view, feel and touch on the Jabra Elite 75t.

I personally have reviewed the Jabra Elite Active 65t in 2019, therefore I have experienced and have some knowledge, capabilities and features of the Jabra Elite series earbuds. Jabra sound quality and clarity is never a doubt, along with their technology and connectivity built inside their earbuds. When I saw the Jabra Elite 75t, it is smaller and lighter, for both the earbuds and charging case! That’s a significant improvement and the Elite 75t looks more sleek and aesthetically better looking.

Xuanling Lu, Jabra’s Regional Product Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific, said, “We are excited to introduce the most comfortable and long-lasting addition to our award-winning Elite range of true wireless earbuds in Singapore. The Elite 75t is a result of our dedication in listening and catering to changing customer needs for an elevated and truly wireless earbud experience. On top of delivering premium sound, the Elite 75t delivers smaller, better fitting earbuds with longer battery life.”

Inside this Elite 75t, this pair of earbuds leverages on technology from their sister company GN Hearing to reduce power consumption while able to maintain strong device connectivity. One key feature of the Elite 75t that would attract the attention of earbuds owners would be their design, specifically designed to provide enhanced comfort through their optimal earbud shape and size. They are ideal even for smaller ears, their ergonomic shape makes them comfortable, fitting without worry of dropping out in the activities that the user may be engaged in.

Understanding key user needs and delivering them

We human beings are all unique and different, our ears are no exception. Jabra developed a comfort and fit simulation model based on thousands of ear scans from global users to determine the most optimal 3D shape and size, that fits into our ears comfortably across different groups of users. Along with this simulation model, more data were also collected on users insights, needs and preferences on what constitutes a true wireless experience for wireless earbuds users.

Earbuds users demand more battery life, better fit and ease of connectivity. Through the Elite 75t, it offers up to 28 hours of battery life with the charging case and 7.5 hours without. For those in a rush, the fast charging feature which offers 1 hour of playback time from 15 minutes of charging would definitely be appreciated and most welcomed.

Meticulous engineering ensures that the new compact size continues to deliver the fundamentals users expect from Jabra, namely – robust connectivity, durability, ease of use and a superior calls and music experience. Making and taking calls is a great experience with the 4-microphone call technology, enhanced with Jabra’s latest noise and wind reducing algorithms. This feature gives users the confidence to take calls even in busy environments like the street or train. Jabra has enhanced the ease of use of the charging case by ensuring easy access and adding magnets.

For earbuds users who wants to have more control and customisation of their music profile, there is the Jabra Sound+ app, this would allow users to choose their voice assistant, customise their music profile with the equaliser, modify how much nearby noise they want to hear (HearThrough), adjust their calls experience, keep track of battery charge, and much more.

Key features and specifications:

• New compact earbud shape tested for comfort and secure fit

• More than 7.5 hours battery life, up to 28 hours with the charging case

• 4-microphone technology for crystal clear calls even in noisy and windy environments

Jabra Elite Active 65t Review

The Jabra Elite Active 65t is one of the products in the wide and diverse range of Jabra’s lineup of headsets for both office and leisure. I reviewed the Jabra Elite 85h previously, continuing on to take on Jabra earbuds review and I got the opportunity to do the Jabra Elite Active 65t review.  

 

Aesthetics

This pair of true wireless earbuds are lightweight, with a good secure fit that makes it snug and secure into your ears with its in-ear form factor, that allows you to enjoy active daily lifestyle whether at work, commuting or doing sports. It is sweat and dust resistant with its IP56 rating and comes with a two year warranty against damage from sweat and dust.

They are available in Copper Blue, Titanium Black and Copper Red colours, a good mix to choose from for the lifestyle/sporty folks and working professionals.

Audio/Sound

The Jabra Elite Active 65t audio quality is good, it’s clear and crisp, making it good for taking calls on your earbuds. On the bass, it’s decent, not strong/powerful in my personal view. As for the mid range, it’s clear, detailed and natural, without being too overwhelming bright or underwhelming dull. On the treble, it’s a bit lacking in this area, I would need to push the volume up to get the loudness/highs.

However, you are able to customise and personalise the sound on the Jabra Elite Active 65t to meet your needs and expectations.

Technology

The Jabra Elite Active 65t has some nice technology built inside them. When you take the earbuds out from the charging case, it automatically turns on and when one of the earbuds is taken out from the ear, it automatically pause.

They can connect to 2 devices at a time, bluetooth pairing up to 8 devices, running on Bluetooth 5.0 and up to 10 metres operating wireless range. There is also the accelerometer that can track your fitness and performance with an integrated motion sensor.

Jabra Sound+ App

The Jabra Sound+ App is available for you to customise and personalise your sound to meet your audio expectations. Personally, I like earbuds and headphones that allows me to personalise and customise my sound through an app. This is also the place whereby you can control the other technological functions and capabilities of the Jabra Elite Active 65t, the Voice Assistant whereby you can have instant access to your voice assistant (from Amazon Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant) direct to your earbuds.

HearThrough

HearThrough is one of the technological capabilities built inside the Jabra Elite Active 65t. On the Jabra Sounds+ App, you can control and filter the level of sounds that surrounds you. There are times whereby we would love listening to music without any external sound distraction, there also times whereby we would also need to be aware of our surroundings e.g. listening to music on the move and we need to be aware of our surroundings. The HearThrough is the function that does this for you.

Thoughts and views

The Jabra Elite Active 65t is true wireless earbuds, ideal for people with an active and sporting lifestyle, for both daily work and leisure, taking calls, doing sports or listening to music while on the move.

Battery life is up to 5 hours from a single charge, with another 10 hours extra from the charging case. Depending on your usage, it might be enough battery juice for you or might not be enough for your usage.

As for the sound quality, while it would suit most people in the market. The Jabra Elite Active 65t would be suitable for those busy working professionals that needs to communicate while on the move with their clear voice quality and connectivity, they are also ideal for those who have an active sports lifestyle and the everyday user on the move or at home.

I would like to thank Jabra (Singapore) and GLOO PR for the opportunity to review the Jabra Elite Active 65t
