Jabra Elite 65T Review

Today, a lot of us are enjoying the convenience of having a wireless environment, but a single fact still remains: despite the convenience, there are still only a few competitive options that are available. With that, the Elite 65t from Jabra is an option that really shines.

The Elite 65t is a solid and clear-sounding pair of real wireless headphones that also have a balanced wireless connection. It also has great battery life as well as advanced features that adequately work in the real world. The company claims that this headset offers a combination of everyday function and durability that puts the Elite 65t on the top spot in the market.

Even for die-hard iOS fans, the Jabra Elite 65t is something that might make them think twice. Yet with what Jabra claims, this headset comes off as the perfect wireless headset that’s difficult to beat.

Jabra Elite 65T Review – What’s in the Box?

The Elite 65t is securely packed in a grey colored box that displays the company’s signature yellow accents on it. You’ll also find a photo of the headset itself, its name, and a couple of details in front.

When you flip the box and check the back portion of it, you’ll find another image of Elite 65t as well as some of its highlights and features. Other than that, there aren’t much details on its exterior; so with that, you can just slide off the covering of the box to reveal the product and a couple of other items included.

Inside, you will find two earbuds, three sets of rubber ear tips, and a little black charging case. Also included are micro USB charging cables plus a little user guide that will help you take advantage of the various features available.

The Product

Jabra Elite 65T Review – Premium Wireless Audio

The Elite 65t from Jabra comes with an all black body with a silver face. On both of its buds, you’ll find a circular spot that holds the onboard controls while a little arm-like piece extends from this area; the piece holds the headset’s microphone.

Check out the right bud and you’ll see that it holds the play / pause buttons; plus, it’s also where you get to summon your Google Assistant or Siri. The left bud is where you adjust the volume by giving short presses, while skipping tracks is also possible by giving long presses. We think that these controls are pretty useful so we’re glad that Jabra added these and even positioned them in the right spot.

The charging case that’s included is a little black box that features a micro USB charging port right underneath. It also has one LED light that notifies you when the device is charging or not.

The top portion of the device has a hinge that opens and reveals two cutouts for the headset. In between, there’s a green LED available that alerts you when the Elite 65t is fully charged. When you set the device in its case, the exterior LEDs either pulse green or red depending on how much battery is available.

Let’s take a look at the battery: it’s pretty good since it can last up to a total of fifteen hours with the battery case; it has an IP55 rating and for convenience, Jabra included a two-year dust and resistance warranty for the Elite 65t.

The charging time lasts about two hours when using its USB wall charger of 500 mA, while its talk time lasts up to a total of five hours of battery life. For rapid charging, it takes a total of fifteen minutes to give you a battery life of 1.5 hours. For the dimensions, the headset weighs a total of 6.5 grams while the left headset is 5.8 grams and the charging case is just 67 grams. Its operating temperature is -10° to +55°C.

Specifications for the microphone starts off with its concept which is 4 x MEMS. It is integrated with a wind-noise protection that is a 4 mic system with an open acoustic chamber design. Ambient noise reduction is also available via the 4 mic system and its speaker measures 6.0 x 5.1 millimeters. Its speaker-frequency ranges from 20 Hz to 20 kHz and its frequency range is from 100 Hz to 10 kHz. Total microphone sensitivity measures around -38 dBV / Pa.

When you make calls, you’ll be able to converse properly since this is made clear via the Elite 65t earbuds. It is known to provide the best in class call performance which is extremely convenient, especially when you’re on the go. Its four-microphone technology also provides you with outstanding wind-noise reduction during calls. Plus, its advanced 6-millimeter speakers allows you to let in or block out ambient sound.

The Jabra Sound + Application

The Jabra Sound + is the best application for your Jabra headset. It adds additional features to let you personalize how you want to utilize your Elite 65t. Select your voice assistant, modify the amount of nearby noise that is acceptable, keep track of the battery charge, customize your music profiles, and a lot more.

The company also created Moments – predefined settings that is perfect for a variety of situations to make your experience with the Jabra Elite 65t even better.

The app features a voice assistant that lets you easily toggle between your device’s assistant or even Amazon Alexa. Audio Experience allowed us to adjust the Hear-Through function to determine the amount of ambient noise that is present. If there are any, these are pumped right into the earbuds.

We think that it’s a really useful and convenient feature for joggers and people who are on the go. This is also where you can adjust the headset prompts and auto pause.

Now for the music equalizer. It allows you to freely and manually adjust the five-band EQ that ranges from a total of 60 hZ to 14 kHz. For the call experience feature, this gives you the freedom to adjust your voice’s volume during calls. It also prevents you from having to speak louder than usual because of a weak mic.

Setting up the Jabra Elite 65t and its Controls

The Elite 65t’s setup is really simple. First, you’ll need to hold down each bud’s button for three seconds, then, the earbuds’ power will switch on. It will activate for pairing with another device. A female voice will then guide you through the pairing procedure which is a very easy step.

All you need to do is open the Bluetooth menu of your intended device then choose the Jabra Elite 65t to connect these. When it comes to charging the headset, you simply put these back in the compact charging case that features a micro USB charging port.

Performance

When it comes to its overall sound quality, the Jabra Elite 65t is really good. There’s a certain level of fullness to the audio it produces which is something that a lot of today’s wireless earbuds lack. For better listening experience, you’ll get booming and deep low ends, as well as punchy highs which is great for listening.

The Elite 65t performs excellently for a wide array of music and honestly, it sounds perfect right out of the box. Of course, you can tweak and customize the Elite 65t based on your preferences.

Now for our biggest concern when it comes to these wireless headphones: connectivity is what makes or breaks the performance of wireless headsets. There have been a couple of headsets that we’ve tried in the past; these were rather inefficient and constantly disconnected when moving away from the paired device.

Luckily, we didn’t experience this when using the Jabra Elite 65t. We also didn’t have terrible Bluetooth range which was really great on our part.

Another notable thing about the Elite 65t’s performance is the quick and easy first-time pairing; also, when we pulled the headset out of its case, the earbuds instantly linked to the computer and phone which is really convenient. Range is also notable for this device.

Even when we moved to different locations in the office, we didn’t have any issues with lost connection; also, we were able to step out of the building though it depends on where we left our phone. So for the performance, we’re giving the Elite 65t  from Jabra two thumbs up.

Conclusion

Jabra Elite 65t doesn’t have flashy features that you’ll find from other headphones which is fine since this device doesn’t need too much features as long as it delivers great sound quality. Aside from that, it also has to be comfortable when worn, and it also needs to stay connected to the device paired to it.

The Jabra Elite 65t meets all of these requirements and this headset will give you great audio that is crisp and clear. When it comes to build quality, the Elite 65t is solid and durable, so this should last a couple of years if used with care.

So if you’re looking for an affordable yet high-quality headset, we highly recommend this Jabra Elite 65t.
