Jabra Elite 75t: Move Over AirPods
The Jabra Elite 75t true wireless earbuds are smaller, promise a better fit, better connectivity and better sound thanks to improvements in design and tech normally found in hearing aids.
The new Jabra Elite 75t is 20% smaller than the Elite 65t earbuds we love, and offer 50% more battery life. While shrinking the size, Jabra aimed to solve two major complaints from wireless earbud users; sound quality and fit.
You can buy the Jabra Elite 75t starting in October for $199 at Best Buy, Amazon and other retailers.
Working with scans of thousands of ears and experts on the hearing aid side of the business, Jabra developed a new design that they say offers a better fit for more users, which translates to better sound. Jabra also upgrades the true wireless earbuds to Bluetooth 5.0 for better connectivity.
At launch, you can use the right earbud solo for calls, podcasts or audiobooks, and an update will let you choose either earbud for mono listening. While the best sound comes from using both in stereo configurations, it’s handy to use just one earbud when you need to stay aware of your surroundings.

When on calls, there are four microphones and new tech to reduce noise and wind in busy areas.
You can connect the Jabra Elite 75t to your favorite personal assistant, Alexa, Siri or Google Assistant to use voice commands while on the move. The JabraSound+ app for your phone lets you choose the assistant you prefer and also lets you set up a custom EQ for your music or audio.
There’s also new tech to make wearing the earbuds for long periods without that annoying pop you get when taking out many earbuds after hours of use. This is a feature I’m looking forward to, as I routinely use the Elite 65T while working in wet or dirty environments for several hours.
Jabra offers an IP55 rating for dust and water, and warranties the Elite 75t for both of these.
Along with the redesigned earbud, Jabra went back to the board with the case, making it easier to open, keeping the earbuds in place with magnets and switching to USB C charging.
The earbuds offer 7.5 hours of battery life on their own, and the case adds bumps that up to 28 hours.
