JABRA ELITE 75T
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.
