SOUND

At the end of the day, sound is the most important factor to consider when shopping around for new heart-pumping music delivery systems. It provides crystal-clear trebles and pumping bass for those hip-hop running days, and offers a high volume that will drown out the world around you as you workout.

Even non-audiophiles will notice appreciate the high-quality sound delivery offered in such a small and compact package.

The biggest question when it comes to sound is: What will audiophiles think of the sound of these running headphones? Out of the box, the sound on these headphones is crystal clear, but it doesn’t stop there. Users have the option to download Jabra Sound+ to customize their listening experience.

This app allows you to make tweak the equalizer to customize your listening experience. The Jabra Sound+ app also packs in a host of other features that enhance your listening experience which I will take a deeper dive into below.

JABRA SOUND+

The app is designed to allow users to make tweaks to the sound to enhance the sound of their music playlists, but it also offers a host of other super handy features as well. With any style of headphones, it’s difficult to make adjustments to the sound of advanced features when the buttons are stations on the side of your head.

With this compatible app, you can check in on your battery life, dial the noise-canceling feature up and down, manage call settings, and even track your fitness progress.

Just like a FitBit, these headphones are able to detect when you make a movement and track your steps and intensity to Jabra’s HealthKit app. It’s important to note that this impressive feature is only offered with the Active model of these headphones.

With this compatible app, these headphones do it all! They deliver a premium sound all while tracking your fitness progress. If you don’t have a health tracker (like a smartwatch or a FitBit, these headphones are a great option!

BATTERY LIFE

For working out, I shied away from wireless headphones and earbuds for a long time because I’m not all that great at charging my devices. It’s always considered to be a good day when I remembered to charge my phone the night before! However, these earbuds hold a charge for quite some time, and they charge up incredibly quickly.

When fully charged, these earbuds deliver around an impressive 24 hours of use from a single charge. Many users found that during an average training schedule, they were able to use these headphones for almost a full week before they needed to pop them onto the charging station. If you don’t like charging your devices every night, these are a great choice.

I also love that these earbuds charge up incredibly fast. If you forgot to charge them the night before, simply place them in the charging cradle, make a cup of coffee, answer some work e-mails, change into your workout clothes and they should be charged enough to last through your workout.

Overall, these earbuds take around 2 hours to reach a full charge. With the Jabra Sound+ app, you can check in to see how close they are to being fully charged.

PERFORMANCE

Jabra has a long lineup of headphones and earbuds, and not all are perfect for running or working out. The Jabra Elite 75t are great headphones for sitting at the airport or working at your computer, but they are great for working out.

The Jabra Elite 75t Active is designed specifically for those in the market for a killer pair of earbuds that are made to move. The water-resistant shell is unique only to the Elite 75t Active, and are able to withstand super sweaty workouts or day where you are caught in the rain.

What also makes these earbuds built for users on the go is the addition of the fitness tracker. The built-in fitness tracker sends your step count and performance to the compatible HealthKit app. This feature is unique only to the Jabra Active model of headphones, and it’s a great way to combine fitness gear into one affordable and compact package.

You can opt to purchase separate headphones and fitness trackers, or you can buy a product that fuses these two essential workout tools into one compact and affordable package.

One of the downsides to these earbuds is that they do not provide portable charging. It may be something that we see implemented in newer models of these headphones, but for now, it means that you need to be close to an electrical outlet to fully charge your earbuds.

The good news is that with a 24-28 hours battery life, charging your earbuds is something that you won’t need to do very frequently.

COMFORT

Jabra did their research to ensure that these earbuds are incredibly comfortable. These earbuds are coated with a grippy material that stays securely in place in your ears. Even as you work up a sweat, these headphones will not slip or slide around in your ears.

The materials used are incredibly soft and bend to contour the unique shape of your ear. I combed through hundreds of user reviews, and found almost no complaints when it came to the overall comfort of these earbuds!

Plus, the grippy materials used mean that they will stay securely in place even during a high-intensity workout.

PRICE

Jabra is a brand that provides high-quality sound at a relatively affordable price point, the abra Elite 75t Active headphones are no exception. While they’re not exactly budget-friendly, they walk the fine line between premium sound and an affordable price point. If you have ever shopped around for headphones, you know that the price runs all over the map.

I’ve picked up a pair in a budget bin at a department store (that sounds like I’m jamming out to an old-timey gramophone) and found some (that I did not buy) that cost about as much as a mortgage payment.

These headphones sit very comfortably in the middle of the pack. They deliver premium sound into your brain, they have an impressive battery life, and a comfortable shell that stays put as you rin or train.

They are a little more expensive than the sea of budget-friendly earbuds, but they are well worth every penny!
Jabra Elite 75t Vs Jabra Elite Active 75t
When comparing the Jabra Elite 75t to the Jabra Elite Active 75t, it’s hard to find any noticeable differences. They both weigh the exact same, deliver the same premium sound quality, have an identical battery life, and sit in your ears quite well. However, the Jabra Elite 75t costs almost half as much as the Elite Active 75t, and I wanted to find out why.

As the name suggests, the Jabra Elite Active 75t is designed for those on the move. If you just need a pair of headphones to wear while sitting on the bus or working at your desk, the base-level Jabra Elite 75t will work just fine.

However, if you need something to wear while running outdoor with unpredictable weather (or when working up a sweat) you will want to pay the extra cost for the Elite Active 75t.

The biggest difference between these two earbuds (aside from the price point) is that the Active has a waterproof shell. This shell protects your earbuds from salty sweat and rain, but you can’t wear them in the shower or swimming in the pool.
Verdict
Shopping around for earbuds to fuel your workouts with heart-pumping jams can prove to be a little overwhelming. There is no shortage of earbuds to choose from, and that can be a real problem. The good news is that the Jabra Elite 75t Active earbuds are designed with athletes in mind, and provide unique features for those that like to stay active.

Users absolutely love the comfortable fit that stays in place even when they get a little sweaty, the impressive battery life, and the tweakable sound features found in the Jabra Sound+ app.

With a comfortable and durable frame and premium sound, it was hard to find anything wrong with these earbuds. The only downside to these earbuds is that they don’t provide portable charging.

They provide users with up to 24 hours of battery life from a single charge, so popping them on the charger won’t be something that you do very frequently. However, the option for portable charging would be nice.

If you are on the hunt for earbuds that blend premium sound with a design that is catered for those that engage in intense workouts, these earbuds check all of the boxes. They boast a long battery life that is sure to fuel your heart-pumping playlists throughout your entire workout, even if you are training for a marathon.

These earbuds take up to 2 hours to fully charge, and some users were able to squeeze up to 28 hours of use from a single charge.
