The Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless are a set of truly wireless earbuds that are reasonably well-rounded. They’re the successor to the iconic Jabra Elite Active 65t Truly Wireless and a sports-oriented alternative to the Jabra Elite 75t Truly Wireless. Although they perform similarly to both versions, they have a higher IP rating for water and dust resistance, which we currently do not measure. They have a slightly excited sound profile that should fit a range of material and genres, and their super lightweight nature makes taking them to the gym a breeze. Their battery life is a little less than advertised, but it’s still not bad, particularly considering the case comes with a few extra charges. They don’t isolate noise as well as their predecessor, but they still have a good listening experience overall.

The Jabra Elite Active 75t has the same low-profile nature as the Jabra Elite 75t Truly Wireless, but it’s more sporty. They have a sleek, matte finish that gives them a slightly more luxurious appearance than the older Jabra Elite 65t Truly Wireless and Jabra Elite Active 65t Truly Wireless, but the difference isn’t as noticeable. These headphones come in navy, copper black, or titanium black in the United States, and various color choices are available globally.

The Jabra Elite Active 75t in-ear headphones are lightweight and comfortable. They’re not quite as big as the Jabra Elite Active 65t. True Wireless headphones place less strain on the inner ear, making them more comfortable to wear for longer periods of time, even if your ears are small. They go deep into your ear canal, but the buttons are easy to use without pressing them too far in, which is convenient. There are a few different-sized tips included to help you find the right match.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t has excellent controls, particularly given its true wireless nature. You can raise or lower the volume, toggle their talk-through mode, and even mute the mic when on a call, in addition to normal call/music control. Their physical buttons are simple to use and provide satisfying clicky feedback. Although the controls, particularly the double and triple tap for track forwarding and skipping, take some getting used to, they’re generally simple to use.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t, like most genuinely wireless in-ears we’ve reviewed, has excellent portability. They’re much smaller than the Jabra Elite Active 65t Truly Wireless and can comfortably fit into most pockets. Each earbud is equipped with a magnet, allowing them to stay together, which is useful if you often throw your headphones into your pocket or purse.
A strong case is included with the Jabra Elite Active 75t. It has a similar appearance to the Jabra Elite Active 65t example, but with a few useful variations. The bottom is now flat rather than rounded, allowing you to stand it on a desk and making it much easier to open and close. It has a black matte finish, identical to the earbuds, and is smaller than the previous model’s case.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t is made of high-quality materials. They’re billed as a sportier version of the Jabra Elite 75t Truly Wireless, but they appear to be made of the same dense plastic and have a similar overall design. They have a similar feel to them and seem to be able to handle a few minor bumps and drops without breaking. They’re dust and water resistant to IP57, which is better than the Elite 75t edition, but we haven’t tested it yet.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t is well-balanced. They should be snug enough to allow you to jog or lift weights without difficulty. If you do high-impact exercises like CrossFit or kickboxing, however, you may find that they slip around in your ears more than something with stability fins, such as the Jaybird Vista Truly Wireless, or ear-hooks, such as the Beats Powerbeats Pro Truly Wireless, JBL Endurance Peak II True Wireless, or the Mpow Flame Pro Truly Wireless.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless in-ears provide good noise isolation. They have successful Active noise cancellation (ANC), but they do a decent job of shutting out workplace sounds such as the buzz of an air conditioner and background conversations. However, they’re not very good at blocking out noises like bus and plane engines, which is to be expected from in-ears without active noise cancellation. While the Jabra Elite Active 65t Truly Wireless lacks ANC, it does a better job of isolating you from low-frequency noise.
The battery life of the Jabra Elite Active 75t is adequate. Their 6.5-hour continuous battery life falls short of the advertised one hour, but it’s still sufficient for your regular commute or light office use. There’s a power-saving feature that turns them off after 30 minutes of inactivity or 15 minutes of not being connected to a computer, which is convenient if you forget to turn them off before throwing them in your pocket, but we haven’t tested it yet.
The charging case can carry up to three additional charges, and the headphones take about two hours to recharge. It should be remembered that battery efficiency varies with real-world use, so your headphones can produce different results. If you’re looking for something with longer battery life, the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ Truly Wireless or the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport are two options.
The Bluetooth connectivity on the Jabra Elite Active 75t is excellent. They can connect to two devices at once, which is useful if you often move between your phone and computer, but they don’t support NFC, which would make pairing easier. They have a low latency on iOS, but you can experience some audio lag while using them on PC or Android to watch videos or play mobile games. However, certain devices and software tend to assist in latency compensation, so the results can differ.

Pros and Cons
For the most part, the Jabra Elite Active 75t are fine completely wireless earbuds. Their excited sound profile is still very flexible for a wide variety of genres, even though their sound isn’t the most neutral. They’re easy to throw into your backpack, whether you’re going to work or the gym, thanks to their ultra-compact but sturdy nature. However, you will need to charge them during the day, and they do not isolate noise as well as active noise cancelling headphones.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t is an excellent sports headset. They have an energising, thumpy sound profile that can help you stay motivated while practising, as well as simple controls. They’re easy to throw into your gym bag because of their small size, and they’re comfortable and stable. They may not be safe enough for high-impact workouts like kickboxing or gymnastics, but they’re ideal for running or working out.
