    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbaised review. Just when I opened the box. I was so amazed how it looked. Once charged it was amazing how easily it connected and how easy it was. No more issues having to carry the phone in my hand. Most of all I can save it from stolen. I am glad I got the chance to test. The charging doesn't take long. It lasts just over 5 hours. I use it out and about. While cooking and cleaning.

    The product is boxed nicely and would make a great gift. I was slightly disappointed with the quality of the charging case, its difficult to open and feels a bit cheaply made (I'm comparing to apple ear buds as the case feels substantial and opens easily).
    The sound is good, I have Bose noise cancelling headphones so will be comparing the sound to them. The clarity of sound is crisp and the bass is good and both are adjustable.
    The actual ear phones are fairly bulky in comparison to most in ear phones. The take a bit of fiddling to get in but once in and using the correct size ear protector they are not too bad (again comparing them to apple ear buds they are a dream to wear!)

    First of all I'll talk about the things I like...

    They look and feel great. They fit well in the ears. A lot of thought has gone into the aesthetics of these earphones and it really works for me. They fit nicely in the charging case and that, as well, is a very nicely designed and thought out part of the package. They feel premium.

    They connect very quickly. If the bluetooth is switched on on my phone they will connect between me taking them out of the case and putting them in my ears.

    The sound is... pretty good! For drivers of this size it's rare to be impressed by sound quality. I have heard similar sound quality for a lot less money, but admittedly they are amongst the best I've heard at this size. The volume and noise cancellation (ear seal) are adequate for most occasions. They left a little to be desired whilst walking next to a busy road.

    The microphone is pretty great. The listen through feature works well and hands free calling works very well. Amazing for earphones with a mic built into the earpiece.

    Can't fault the battery life and the case charging! Both great.

    Now for the issues...

    The dropouts. The signal drops out very regularly. This is surely the first thing to get right on wireless earphones! It's very surprising that the connection does not stay stable between pocket and ear. The problem is even worse when the phone is in a cycling jersey (back) pocket- which for a pair of earphones made for exercise is disappointing. I had the opportunity to test a much cheaper pair which had no dropout problems in the same scenarios.

    Only the right earphone can be used on its own. At first I didn't realise why this was a problem for an 'active' pair of earphones- but it quickly became apparent. When running or cycling on or by a road you need to be able to hear your surroundings. The listen-through feature is great until you're travelling at any sort of speed or on a slightly windy day- when the microphone just amplifies wind noise into your ear. So you can only wear one earphone to be safe. And herein lies the issue- in countries where you drive/ride on the left (like the UK) you can only wear the traffic-side earphone, which is of course unsafe. This is a terrible oversight in design, and disqualifies them from the shortlist of a huge number of city-based exercisers.

    Overall I would be happy to overlook the problems with a much lower price tag. But for the price I feel like the style outweighs the substance!

    The packaging and feel of these earbuds is really impressive however the buds just don’t fit my ears so I’m not really able to review the sound quality. I have problems with a lot of in ear headphones as I have very small ears so this shouldn’t be taken as a big negative for these ear buds.
    My partner doesn’t have any problems getting headphones to fit. He used them for a run and said they were great for about 3 miles but then they got sweaty and started slipping out.

    Positives
    -The headphones are really great at noise cancelling.  You do not hear the outside world when you are wearing them.
    -Once you get the hang of fitting them in your ear they stay in quite well
    -The way they charge in the case is quite clever and easy to charge
    -The sound quality is great
    -The battery life seems to be quite long, I have only charged them once since getting them and have no idea how many hours I have used them.  Feels like at least 20.
    -Pairing is super easy.  The moment I take them out of the case they immediately pair with my phone

    Cons
    -Expensive
    -Pairing when first setting them up is a bit tricky
    -When running or doing any physical activity having both ear buds in at the same time makes you feel like you have your ears blocked.  I have learned running with one is great

    Sadly not for me, BUT.
    Here’s what I think of the Jabra Elite Active 65T ear buds.
    Packaging and presentation is impressive, from the get go. The design is very futuristic. The idea of the case providing charging is ingenious. If a little fiddly to open, at first.
    Linking to my phone was a cinch, and the app was easy to find and install.
    The app gives heaps of extra functions including find my Jabra, voice assistant connection, hear through settings, background noise cancellation, and many more.
    Sound quality is excellent and the app provides a graphic equaliser, so you can customise the sound to your own taste.
    I thought I’d find the Function buttons fiddly, but actually I didn’t. To start with I printed off the 2 pages which show the main functions and used them as a reminder, I soon didn’t need them.
    Unfortunately, all these good points I have to give up because of 2 points.
    The earphones were uncomfortable in my little ears. The ear gels are fine, and come in 3 different sizes all of which I tried. It’s the body of the units which is a little bulky if you have small ears like mine.
    The second issue was the “Hear Through” setting, for use when running in traffic areas, so you can hear your music but also hear sounds like traffic. But I couldn’t find a level which was as good as removing an earphone (on standard earphones) even when set on maximum. Maybe it’s my hearing, I don’t know.
    So, if you have larger ears than mine and can find a “Hear Through” setting which suits you, I would definitely recommend the Jabra Elite Active 65T ear buds.

    I was very excited by this product and have been reasonably impressed. The product came in a smart box with all relevant accessories. I did find, however when I opened the boxy the gel insert already on the headphone got stuck in the packaging and was quite tricky to prise out. Setting up my first smartphone - IPhone - to connect was easy enough however trying to get the second (android) took some time and involved me having to turn the product off and on and disconnect from the iPhone. I used the product initially for music only (with Spotify) and this was pretty reasonable with the occasional loss of reception but generally okay. Finally, I have tried to utilise the product for phone calls and it has been very hit and miss - sometimes working find and then other times no reception at all. I thought this may have been the phone but then on removing he connection and calling manually the call went through fine. For a relatively premium product I would expected the connectivity - particularly around calling to be spot on.

    Upon receiving the earphones the packaging was compact and looked very smart. The buds come with different size ear pieces to ensure the correct fit - and one thing I would say is the correct fit makes all the difference to the sound you get back. The case that they come in, is a small chargeable case that can easily be kept in your gym bag or anywhere else for that matter. I use my headphones every morning during my workout and have had these for approximately 3 weeks. In this time I have charged the case once! This is a great quality of this product and you never have to worry about running out of battery. You can download the Jabra app which allows you to personalise your sound quality even more so and also link up to apple health. Once you have chosen the appropriate size ear bud, the fit is great and feels very secure. I have done most types of exercise with them in and not once worried about them falling out. The sound quality of this product is also great. Again this is something that can be adapted on the app, but I do like to listen to my music with the volume up as loud as it can go. One slight negative for me and the only thing that has stopped me rating this product as 5 stars is the controls. As this is such a compact product it can be quite difficult to use the control panel. This is located on each earbud, with each side having a different function. I found it quite tricky to skip songs etc or found myself changing the volume instead. This may be something that just requires practice, but as a female with quite dainty fingers I imagine this proving tricky for those with larger hands. Overall I am very impressed with this product and would highly recommend it to anyone after a compact yet not compromising on sound earphone.

    From the start I was impressed by the quality of these headphones. The packaging was quality and the first impression of the headphones and charging case was excellent. It took a little while to place them in my ears but once I mastered the place and twist motion they were very secure (even in my ears!). There are times when my ear has a slight ache but only after sustained use. Sound was very clear if a little flat and shallow but with the app I was able to change the equalise. The app is great especially the find my jabra tool as there are times I can’t remember when I last used them. The app reminds you where and when they were used. Controls are a bit fiddly as my fingers are quite big and there a large number of combinations to access different modes (short/medium/long press etc.). Making calls is a good experience as the sound is clear and there are no issues of the other person not being able to hear. Battery life is very good (in fact I haven’t had to charge them again yet after using them for over 10 hours). Overall they are definitely the best headphones I have ever used and the only gripe would be a slightly unimpressive depth to the sound (but I am not a sound technician so not a massive issue).

    First of all, the sound quality is so much better than with my previous earphones. I also like the fact that I can tailor the sound by using the app to increase bass, or treble depending on what I am listening to. The "hear through" option means that I can use them at work without fear of missing what my colleagues are saying to me. This can also be changed back using the app, easy peasy. The app itself is pretty helpful and user friendly. The "find my Jabra" feature is great for when I am rooting around in my bag and struggling to find them! I have been able to wander around my office quite far before losing the connection to my phone at my desk - and it is a large open plan office! It's been quite a novelty picking up my printing while still hearing great quality sound. The earphones look quite attractive and eye catching. They are quite large, so my ears did start to hurt a little after prolonged use. The Amazon Alexa feature is extremely handy, although I try to use it in private as I look like I am talking to myself when my hair is covering the earphones! I quickly discovered that I can use Alexa to do a workout with the Body Coach - it is like having my own personal trainer! It sounds as though he is in the room with me. My only problem is that when I get a notification on my phone, it pauses the workout which is not convenient when you're halfway through 30 seconds worth of reps. When I get hot and sweaty, the earphones manage not to fall out. When the battery is getting low, the earphones tell me. The battery lasts a really long time, most of my working day. The charging case is really good and easy to use. I really love everything about the earphones and I'm glad I got them.

    I was given the opportunity to try these buds as part of a product trial:

    Loving exercise and especially weights at the gym, I have struggled to find the perfect partner for Audio. I have tried everything from over the head wireless headphones, wired in ear headphones and wireless (linked) headphones and always struggled. Over the head falling off and the biggest pain was catching wires and ripping the earphones out of my ears.

    I had seen people with wireless buds (true wireless) and been sceptical about the quality, battery life and people stealing them (especially AirPods)
    This was the perfect opportunity to try them and I was not disappointed.
    The carry case is perfect for slipping in your pocket and keeping with you at all times, the buds themselves fit seamlessly and do not fall out of your ears, I have tried running, weights, rowing machines etc and never had any issues.

    The sound quality is spot on, with the perfect balance of bass and treble, and the addition of the equaliser on the app leaves you truly in control.

    I have found it a little tricky getting used to the controls, i.e how many times to press and which ear to pause, resume, answer calls etc but has become easier over time.
    The noise cancelling is ok, I would have liked slightly more noise cancelling as I do sometimes hear wind noise etc, but it is good still being able to hear traffic etc but not to an annoying level.

    The buds are also not obtrusive when in your ears, but are slightly larger than some other models available.

    All in all. am extremely happy with these buds and would highly recommend them to anybody, Jabra being an expert in headsets, have applied their knowledge exceptionally. You won't be disappointed

    When I first saw these earphones I thought they looked a bit chunky and uncomfortable, but having worn them on a number of occasions now my first impressions could not have been more wrong. I've used them whilst sat down working, commuting and out running and they're great. The sound quality is clear, there's no interference, they're very comfortable and pretty noise cancelling too (although perhaps this isn't so great if you're out running and need to be aware of traffic!), but there is the option to turn on 'HearThrough' which allows background noise to be heard without removing the earphones. I love that there is volume control on the earphone to save having to get your phone out when out running; it makes it so much easier.
    I have also used them for phone calls too and have experienced no issues with the quality of both the audio (i.e. hearing the other person) or the microphone so they can hear me.
    The storage/charging box has a green light on it under the lid to indicate when the earphones are charging (sometimes it can be a little fiddly to get them in the right position in the box), and a light on the bottom which is green, amber or red to show the amount of charge left in the box and give an indication of when the box itself needs charging.
    All in all a great product and I'd definitely recommend them to someone looking for this style of earphone.

    They were fully charged in the box so I could get using them straight away. I have used Jabra before but never a Bluetooth and never an in-ear - I probably won’t go back to using my headset now as these are brilliant. They have the option to have them as noise cancelling or HearThrough’ so if you’re on and off calls you can decide whether you want to hear background noise in between or keep all distractions at bay. The carry case they’re in is really handy and pocket size and it’s even better that this can be charging while you’re using the earphones so then when you put them away, they continue to charge without the needy to be plugged in to a power source. I’d definitely recommend getting these and I’m even looking what other products they have for myself.

    I've been sent these earphones at a discount for an unbiased review. First impressions are the packaging is excellent quality, the earphones and charging case are displayed well, yet securely, the earphones and case came fully charged, a quick start guide made setup possible in under 5 minutes, including downloading the Sound + app, they connected with no problems and the app only enhances the user experience. The earphones fit very snuggly and did not budge even when I shook my head quite violently, they have active noise cancelling which is incredibly effective, I tried in several different situations and at a reasonable volume couldn't hear my surroundings. There is also a hear through function which is great as it allows you to hear what is happening in your surroundings, so great for out and about, although i did notice it can be a little distracting as the sound occasionally switches ears. Overall I would highly recommend these earphones to anyone looking to try true wireless earphones

    I received this product as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review. I was instantly impressed with the premium quality of the sound and the build of the Jabra Elita Active 65t earbuds.
    Upon receiving my Jabra earbuds I downloaded the Jabra Sound+ app to my smartphone. Pairing the Bluetooth was effortless and the app really is the heart of customising the earbuds. The app allows you to control the equalizer, bass and overall sound. If commuting, studying or exercising there is a mode in the app to get the best sound from your earbuds.
    The earbuds themselves are a snug fit and have always stayed in place when using them for cycling, walking or jogging. These are the perfect earbuds to use when exercising as they just seem to stay in place and offer amazing consistent quality sound.
    These earbuds boast a battery life of 5 hours on a single charge (up to 15 hours if used with the charging case). I haven’t actually used them constantly for 5 hours so I can’t verify this fact but they charge quickly when placed in the charging case. The charging case is small and designed to fit in your pocket or the palm of your hand. The only disappointing feature of the charging case would be the lack of wireless charging.
    The integrated motion sensor is a great battery saving feature. The Jabra earbuds come with an AutoPause feature that instantly pauses the sound when removing one earbud. The earbuds also have an AutoPower off feature. One downside if you have the desire to use only one earbud, as many of us do, you are restricted to using only the right as all control is only in the one earbud. For most this isn’t going to be an issue but I always only use the left if using one earbud.
    In summing up these are very impressive earbuds that I would highly recommend.

    These headphones are great. They are quite bulky to takes a little while to get used to, and you have to work out how to fit them in your ears. But the sound quality is fantastic. I like the app that you can use to change the sound settings, and they automatically link up to my phone which is also great.

    Received the Jabra Elite Active 65t to review from Insiders UK. The box are well built and the earbuds and other accessories are nicely packed within. Looked more expensive than it is. The charging case and earbuds are well built and looked great. Charging case came charged so this is handy. Pairing it with my phone took seconds. The Jabra Sound+ app is very helpful to adjust the sound profile although I would love it to have more adjustment parameters. The earbuds itself is comfortable in the ear, however after a while it does get a bit uncomfortable, probably because of my small ears! Sound quality is good, not brilliant but for this price range, it is acceptable. The battery lasted forever, I have used it everyday whilst commuting and walking to work. I am using it whilst typing this testimonial listening to Spotify! Good product worth considering!

    Update after using for a week: This earbuds does not usually lose connections, however on a couple of occasions, it lost connection to the phone that is in my pocket whilst commuting in the train. I would much prefer the charging cable to be USB-C, however I understand this issue has been fixed with the new Jabra Elite Active 75t. Having said that, I still love this earbuds for its stylish design which looked much cooler than the elongated white earbuds manufactured by a fruit company.
