Build­ing upon great­ness.

This fol­low-up to Jabra’s ex­cel­lent Elite 65t – one of the first sets of true wire­less buds that ‘just worked’ – bun­dles to­gether more than a dozen im­prove­ments in an ef­fort to tackle with more-re­cent com­peti­tors. The up­grade has largely been a great suc­cess – as be­fore, they’re com­fort­able and fast to both pair and re­con­nect, but the 75t’s more com­pact and dis­crete de­sign also feels sig­nif­i­cantly tougher and more ro­bust than its fore­bear’s, and they’re still ex­cep­tion­ally light­weight and well-bal­anced in terms of weight dis­tri­bu­tion. An ex­tra 2.5 hours bat­tery life, or 7.5 to­tal, means they can ef­fec­tively last a full work­ing day, and the slimmed-down (and now USB-C) charg­ing case some­how in­cludes 3.5 ad­di­tional full charges (28 hours) within it.

Au­dio qual­ity is like­wise first-rate, although by de­fault it’s tuned for ex­tremely deep, rum­bling bass. Thank­fully, it’s easy to ad­just the sound pro­file to your spe­cific tastes via a five-band equaliser in the Jabra smart­phone app – and the 6mm driv­ers in each bud are flex­i­ble enough that we weren’t able to dis­tort them by push­ing the EQ to ex­tremes.

The 75t sadly still have a cou­ple of the resid­ual short­com­ings from the 65t – specif­i­cally, if you want to use one bud, only the right one of­fers this, and these aren’t a great set of ear­phones for gamers, where a lit­tle lag be­tween the on­screen ac­tion can mess up lip-sync and be mildly dis­tract­ing.

Those gripes aside, this is a very wor­thy up­grade, and one that brings Jabra back into the top tier.


Suc­cess­fully up­dates the Elite de­sign to cre­ate one of the best ‘no fuss’ true wire­less buds.
