Like the AirPods, the Jabra Elite 75t headphones have a truly wireless design, complete with a handy charging case. Unlike AirPods, however, Jabra buds have a more traditional look in the ear, without the need for long stems. Despite its smaller size, the 75t still has an excellent battery life, which lasts up to 5.5 hours between charges, and with the charging case, you can extend it up to 28 hours.

With the Elite 75t, you can also get the ability to sacrifice a little of the battery life for active noise cancellation – which the basic AirPods lack. With ANC enabled, Jabra buds offer a shorter but respectable 24-hour battery life when used with the case. Jabra even includes a transparency-like function via the Sound + app that lets you hear those around you without removing buds from your ear.
Elite 75t also goes above and beyond AirPods, with IP55 water and dust resistance. Combined with the compact design that offers excellent in-ear sealing, the 75t is perfect for workouts compared to Apple’s unique approach to AirPods.
Of course, sound is the most important factor when it comes to headphones, and the Jabra Elite 75t is certainly not a weakness in this department. In our review of the 75t, we mention the “extraordinary sound” as one of the factors that eventually led to the buds dethroning AirPods as headphones for everyday use. The sound can also be customized through the Sound + app, which you don’t get with Apple AirPods.
