The Jabra Elite Active 75t are the latest on offer from the company yet you might ask why as they look identical and are near identical to the recently launched 75t but there is a few differences to take note and these are geared towards the fitness folk more so but you can use them if not,there is a new change to the coating on the exterior which is for the better regardless. If you own the 65t they are smaller and if you own the 75t you might want to move on but your personal preferences or lifestyle might swing a purchase..

The new buds have an IP57 rating which is ideal for the sports folk whilst the 75t only came with an IP55 rating this is the biggest change here,everything else pretty much remains the same after that including the battery life, I usually test these over a few weeks to get a better understanding and consistency level on battery for a more accurate real time answer and they hold up pretty well with the 7.5 hours on a single charge, I was getting around 7 with max volume in most instances. Also not forgetting fast charge which gives you up to 6o mins with a 15 min charge.

Fit is great as expected and with the new coating slightly better grip and more stable in the ears the passive noise cancellation  is great and you must download the sound plus app which I have constantly mentioned in my review this is one of if not the best app in the business and it offers you more personalisation with your earbuds to give you the best audio experience you can have.

Rather that go on about the sound experience these are the best in the game for the price and have covered this in the 75t review, for the money these offer the best sound for the price you pay given I have tested most of the true wireless earbuds out there I know my sound and my ears dont lie, given everyone’s ears are different though it might be an arguable claim but from testing earbuds in the capacity I do I know when sound is good and when sound is  not so good and these offer it all.

You have all the features present in the 75t present again which leaves you phone free to activate commands from the buds themselves, some might find the buttons sensitive but once you get use to using them you will overcome this and these again do not hurt your ears on pressing which some earbuds can do, you might at the start hit a command taking them in or out but you overcome this too with thumb memory and these also have auto play and pause detection too which is great.

One thing to note is you cant use these individually whilst the other is charging being the right. Again it is common and not a huge dealbreaker for me this is a minor issue quite common but you can actively use the other side as some like to use one earbud for certain things. Hear through again is present here for those on the go or jogging for an example which is an ideal feature for being aware of your surroundings.. Call quality again is top notch here with the technology Jabra use and is hard to beat all calls taken where great both ends inside and outside in my testing period..

With the 75t you can connect to more than one device at the same time so if like me and work with two devices all day this is a great feature to have so if you are on a phone/laptop or work with two phones they are the ideal kit and if you need to pair or move to another device you can do so very quickly.

Overall could I recommend these even if you have the 75t?? It is a yes/no argument depending on your lifestyle more so and with more of us taking up fitness I would swing to the yes side even if you have the 75t but it is up to you after that if you want more of the same great sound that you get from these like the 75t good bass, no lag latency good volume level and great sound overall in general beating most others out there it is your call after that..
