The Jabra Elite 65t available from Amazon, Currys & John Lewis for £149.99

If your shopping for some wireless earbuds then the Jabra Elite 65t has to be on your list.  I have spent the last few weeks using these every day mainly on my travel to work. I have to say these are impressive and a fantastic product that Jabra has created.  These earbuds have a real professional look to them and look expensive and are paired with a great sound.

Jabra also gives you 3 important things when buying earbuds: Great Battery, Balanced Sound & Reliability. The Jabra Elite 65t are expensive at the £150 mark but if you want one pair of wireless earbuds these are a must!

Opening the packaging you just know before you turn them on that TLC has gone into making these earbuds and that you have spent well. The message you are greeted with is “ Welcome to Superior Sound”.  So the design of the earbuds are not going to excite but that is the only understated feature you have. The earbuds come with a small charging case made of plastic but with a really nice look which you can with ease pop the charging case in your jacket pocket which I just love.

The earbuds come with a soft touch plastic earbud which does not get uncomfortable like others on the market after long use.  You also get different size earbuds if you find the size attached not comfortable. The Elite 65t’s perfect fit really does give you the chance to cancel out the outside noise and also give you the chance for a perfect sound call.

Jabra also gives you the chance to download the Jabra app which lets you customize different presets of things like relaxing or travel. Personally, it’s not something I have needed.

The controls are also very simple to use each earbud does a different number of controls. The left controls the volume and allows to skip or go back a track. The right earbud has the play/pause, call answer or active your voice assistant with a long press and also has the power button all in one earbud. Battery running low no problem put the buds back in the case and they will charge the buds. A full charge gives you 5 hours of play.  The charging case gives you two full charges. The case can be charged with the micro USB you get in the pack and does not take long to charge up.

When using the Jabra Elite 65t they are great to use took me a bit of time to get used to the earbud design and one thing I really thought what a clever feature is the earbuds automatically turn on when taken out of the case and turn off when putting back in the case.  I also found if you took one earbud out to ask for directions or speak to a mate they pause the music.

The wireless performance is also a great addition to connect with ease.  Make sure you know that you can use one earbud at a time, though note that the right earbud acts as the master so use it when you want to take calls with a single earbud. And when you’re ready to go back to a stereo listening experience, taking the left earbud out of the charging case connects the two immediately.

The sound quality is fantastic its balanced and the mass gives good impact compared to others on the market.  A benefit I found when travelling is they really do block out a ton of external noise which when on the London underground this is a great help central line passengers am talking to you lol.   

Overall, The Jabra Elite 65t is one of the best wireless headphones you can find on the market. They really set the bar the features given make these earbuds a real step above the competition. They are expensive but if your only going to buy one pair of earbuds for your daily use these are a must to consider!
