When we spent time with Jabra’s excellent Elite 65t headphones just a few months ago, we quickly labeled them the best fully wireless headphones on the market. With solid battery life, good sound, và a great feature set, they outdid industry leaders like Apple’s AirPods to become our go-to lightweight listening option.

With its new Elite Active 65t, Jabra added brawny sweatproofing to lớn the already great Elite 65t, providing workout nuts and outdoor enthusiasts with an even more life-proof option for a slightly increased price tag.

Did the best fully wireless headphones get better, or should you save some dough & get the cheaper original model? After a few weeks of testing, the jury is in. Even if your budget is tight, we’d suggest eating one less meal out and springing for the upgrade. You won’t regret it.

Out of the Box

The Elite Active 65t come in a small box with the headphones (inside an included charging case), a small user guide, a micro USB charging cable. They also come with two different eartip sizes — small và large — in addition to lớn the medium-sized rubber tips that come installed on the headphones, though we found the medium tips lớn fit perfectly.

Features và Design

The Elite Active 65t look identical lớn the standard Elite 65t model, save the ability to lớn get the Active in a swanky gold và navy blue colorway. Our nhận xét units were the more understated black-on-black we’d probably choose anyway – we’re not that baller. As with the original model, we like the way the earbuds look in our ears, with small microphone-laden extrusions that recall just slightly the bluetooth không dây headsets that Jabra was known for in the mid-aughts, but in a much more understated thiết kế dabbed with some futuristic flair.





The charging case is the same small pillbox we came to know on the original as well, with an LED charge indicator và micro USB charging port on the bottom, và flip-top lid revealing perfectly molded cutouts for both storing & charging. The lid is still very tightly sealed – it takes a while to lớn get used lớn it, but we had no trouble after a day or so.

When you mở cửa the case, LEDs on the outside of each will let you know how much charge they’ve got, pulsing either red or green. Battery life is once again an AirPod-matching five hours, with two full charges in the case adding up to about 15 hours of juice before the Elite Active 65t need to be plugged in again. That’s less than the industry-leading 25 hours of total power nguồn offered by the AirPods, but still a fairly solid amount of playtime for when you’re unable lớn reach a USB port.

The Elite Active are unaffected by even the sweatiest workouts.

The only major differences between the Elite Active 65t và standard Elite 65t models comes in terms of workout performance. The Elite Active have a motion sensor that allows them to lớn track workout activity, but the real improvement from the original is an IP56 rating, which means they are protected from high pressure water jets & limited dust ingress. The Elite Active should also be unaffected by even the sweatiest workouts, và they can even be rinsed off in the sink to keep them clean. That’s a fairly significant nâng cấp from the original model, which we wouldn’t recommend for particularly sweaty excursions.

For onboard control the headphones thể thao three physical buttons for adjusting playback on the fly. Two buttons on the left earbud allow for volume adjustment and tuy vậy skipping, & one on the right lets you play or pause music. Take calls, or enable “HearThrough,” which lets you pipe in a bit of sound from the outside world. HearThrough is even more useful now that the headphones are sweatproof khổng lồ keep you aware of car horns và other real-world sounds while on runs or xe đạp rides.

The earphones fit very comfortably and don’t fall out — even during serious agitation.

Both Elite 65t models can be immediately paired and used by any Bluetooth-enabled device, but khổng lồ get the most out of them, you’ll want to lớn install the company’s Sound+ app. The phầm mềm allows you to lớn adjust equalization settings, turn HearThrough on or off, & adjust the auto-pause feature, which automatically stops or resumes music if you remove one earbud from your ears. As with the previous model, we were excited that this feature worked when paired with our Dell XPS 13 computer, in addition to lớn phones.


Setting up the Elite Active 65t is a breeze thanks khổng lồ helpful voice instructions. Just put the earbuds in your ears, and press and hold the forward button on the left earbud and the (only) button on the right earbud for three seconds. From there, just follow the audio instructions.


The Elite Active 65t are a bit on the hefty side, but an ergonomic thiết kế means the earphones actually fit very comfortably in your ears and don’t fall out — even during serious agitation. That said, we did discover there’s a “best” method khổng lồ getting them to lớn fit well in your ears: Grab each earphone and place it in your ear before giving it a slight counter-clockwise twist. This should guarantee a proper seal.

Perhaps the best part of the Elite Active 65t is they feature an extremely solid công nghệ bluetooth 5.0 connection that just works in virtually any scenario. No matter which pocket your phone is in or where you move it with your hands, you won’t have to khuyến mãi with a spotty signal.

Audio Performance

Where many fully wireless headsets settle for mediocre fidelity, the Elite Active 65t actually sound quite good — akin khổng lồ a phối of wired headphones that cost about half the price. Nothing has changed between the Elite Active and original model, both of which showcase the deep & punchy bass & shimmery treble we already enjoyed earlier this year.

The good sound chất lượng and durability địa chỉ cửa hàng up lớn a pair of headphones you’ll pop in your pocket & take with you anywhere, without fear of damaging them.

In terms of how they stack up khổng lồ the competition, we still prefer the more balanced sound signature of Bragi’s The Headphone, but we vastly prefer the Elite Active 65t to lớn Apple’s AirPods, which lack enough of a seal to lớn really block out the outside world — or lớn keep in solid bass response.
