Detailed Review of Jabra Elite 75t Bluetooth Headset
The Jabra Elite 65t consistently topped our list of the best true wireless headphones because of its affordable price, customization options, good battery life (at the time), and sound quality. But the competition has improved significantly over the past few years, and Jabra was forced to adapt. On paper, the new Jabra Elite 75t appears to be a modest improvement over its predecessor, but in practice, the changes feel much more substantial. The battery life significantly improves, catching up to the competition, and the customizability features we loved in the 65t are still present. However, the headphones and charging case are much smaller.
Although the design is a vast improvement, the sound quality suffers due to the excessive bass. Although the Elite 75t produces incredible bass impact, it can be exhausting. As we discovered with the Sol Republic Amps Air 2.0, which has an abundance of high-quality bass, big bass is not always a bad thing. However, the Elite 75t’s bass is subpar, muddying the mids and reducing detail. Fortunately, the Jabra app has a programmable EQ that allowed us to reduce the bass. The headphones were brought closer to neutral by halving the bass and mid-bass frequencies. Although the Jabra Elite 75t does not have active noise cancellation, its passive noise isolation works very well. The earbuds’ battery life is excellent; they can be used for about 7 hours on a single charge and can be fully recharged three more times using the charging case. It is also convenient to have fast charging when you urgently need to recharge.
The Jabra Elite 75t in-ear true wireless headphones are 20% smaller than the Elite 65t. On paper, that might not seem like much, but on the hand, it makes a big difference. The Elite 65t’s earbuds were simply too large for some ears to fit, but the Elite 75t’s diminutive earbuds ought to be comfortable for most people. There is still only one button on each earbud, but the Elite 65t’s volume rocker is no longer present. Instead, by pressing and holding the left wireless earbud for a long time, you can change the volume, while pressing and holding the right earbud does the opposite. Unfortunately, this volume control makes it very difficult to set the exact volume you want, and we frequently found ourselves exceeding our target volume. Simply put, changing the volume on a phone is simpler. Despite being smaller, the charging case now offers an additional 20 hours of battery life for a total of 28 hours. You can easily tuck the headphones into your pocket thanks to the smaller charging case
|Size||5.0: 0.9 x 0.76 x 0.6 inches|
|Weight||1.2 ounces (charging case); 0.2 ounces (per earbud)|
|Battery life||28 hours (charging case); 7.5 hours (earbuds)|
The Jabra Elite 75t is still a worthy successor to the excellent Elite 65t, despite the disappointing bass-heavy tuning. The Elite 75t is a pleasure to use because of its smaller size and significantly longer battery life. They are still a reliable pair of truly wireless earphones to use, even though they do not have the best sound quality or active noise cancellation. This is especially true if you frequently take calls while wearing your headphones. So take your time to buy these headsets and spend a lot of time with them to get the actual hearing experience.
