What the experts say
While the design and fit are not perfect, the stable Bluetooth connection, long battery life and classy design made these headphones a winner for TechRadar.
What Hi-Fi was impressed by their ease of use, but the sound quality was a bit of a let down lacking "passion and dynamism".
The Verge had incredibly high praise for Jabra Elite 65t headphones, calling them the best AirPods alternative. They are not trying to do too much and have a very stable Bluetooth connection with nice sound and good bass. They can get a bit uncomfortable if worn for long periods though.

I bought these for a friend as I already have a pair. Absolutely amazing, a top quality product, easy to set up, very convenient and well packaged and supported. If you are looking for wireless earbuds that fit snugly and are secure in the gym or running on the road, look no further!

I’d read really good reviews of these ear buds prior to purchase and they looked like a good noise cancelling alternative to AirPods on paper. In reality, although the left earbud fits perfectly, I can’t get the right one to fit well at all. I’ve tried all three sizes of the earbud tips that come with the product and none sit comfortably. Also you really have to fiddle to get the best sound, and by fiddle I mean push into your ears (which hurts after a while).

Pleasantly surprised by the fit and ease of use. First time using full wireless and was concerned they may not stay in place particularly when exercising. Happy to say this has not been an issue. Overall sound quality is fantastic, usage time between charges also pretty much as stated. I love the charging case too! Sound isolation is passive but very effective; no bleed through on public transport and planning to use shortly on long haul flight in place of older noise cancelling headphones.

I bought these to replace my gym / running headphones after having had 2 pairs of Jaybird X3 - both of which stopped working with irreparable technical issues. + The build quality is great + easy to secure into your ears. + Surprisingly comfortable + Superb sound quality + Battery life is very good - A shade too quiet at maximum volume (for me) - The controls being on the side of the bud mean you have to press the left one into your ear to skip tracks which can be uncomfortable.

I was a bit dubious of spending so much on these as I have never owned any wireless ear buds before. They’re worth every penny, sound quality is brilliant and they’re easy to set up and use. Some great features like the hear thru, means you can pause your music and hear people talking without taking them in and out. The battery life is great and the little neat case can fully charge them twice so no need to faff with wires for a weekend away or long commutes. The phone app is perfect too

Use these mainly for when I go to the gym, they connected easy to my iPhone and was amazed at how comfortable and also how secure they are, sound quality is great and can be made even better with the app, haven’t had any lost connection issues whatsoever, battery seems to last forever, best true wireless headphones I’ve owned by a mile, definitely recommended

The sound is not bad, but can't be compared to bose. When I first purchased this item it was possible to buy single replacement earbuds in case of loss or damage. Now this is not possible anymore and this is really a negative point considering they are so easy to loose. When I contacted the support, they were still stating on their website the fact that you could buy 1 single side. they replied to my email after 3 days just telling me they were sorry but things were changed.

These Headphones are fantastic and the sound is crystal clear. The battery life on them is amazing and it comes with different attachments as to fit every type of ear. They look good and with no wires make it easy to go about your activities. They are slightly heavy so you can feel they are in your ear but that is really not a problem unless you are really bothered by that sort of thing.

Premium build earbuds with crystal clear sound quality, plus plenty of volume. Charging is done via the small storage case - up to 15 hours playtime. Bluetooth pairing is easy and the range impressive. The buds were comfortable to wear and, when positioned correctly in the ear, they always remained in place. Phone calls excellent, loud and clear, plus caller name announced. I recommend downloading the Jabra Elite Active 65t user manual online to enjoy the full benefit of these earbuds.
