Exactly 1 year ago, I had Jabra Elite 65t review and concludes that these pairs are all what the user needs, but still need a little bit more (especially in the form of audio) to be able to compete with other brands, are investing a lot to perfect our TWS pairs. So after 1 year, the company has done what and left nothing in the upgraded version Jabra Elite 75t?
The box of this year’s edition is exactly the same as last year, still with the familiar dark gray and gold tones of Jabra.
Even the opening experience is the same, with the slogan ‘Welcome to the peak of sound quality’ with a small cut so we can see the headset.
Putting the headset aside to learn about the accessory first, we have a manual, a USB Type-C cable (an upgrade with the micro USB of the old version) and 2 rubber gaskets.
And indispensable is the charging box for the ear. The point that made me very upset at the Elite 65t box was that the base was rounded so it could not be placed on a table, now fixed in 75t version. The inside of the box still has a magnet to put the headset in the right place.
The battery is one of the major upgrades of this pair of headphones. The Elite 75t’s standalone use time is 7.5 hours, and up to 28 hours when used with the box; For comparison, these 2 numbers of the Elite 65t are 5 and 15 hours. Accompanied by that we also have the ability to charge fast, with 15 minutes of charging can play an additional 1 hour. This is a major upgrade, putting the Elite 75t in the ranking of the TWS pairs with the best music playing time.
Jabra is a company that has experience in designing one-party conversation headsets for business people, so even its later headphones will have a ‘simple’ design with simple deep color. not as striking as WF-1000xm3 or AirPods Pro.
Saying that does not mean this is not a good design! The Elite 75t is colorless but very handy, smaller than the 65t version to 20%, accompanied by a reasonably curved beveled tube, so it is significantly more comfortable to wear. The headset also does not ‘stick’ out of the user’s ear too much, in contrast to the pair Noble Falcon.
The outside of this pair of headphones is still two control buttons, but not switched to touch. I still evaluate these are two good buttons, with very light pressure should not cause discomfort, like ‘poking’ headphones deep close to the eardrum ‘like some other pairs of headphones. Inside the ear also has proximity sensors to automatically disconnect music whenever the user removes the Elite 75t from the ear.
With only 2 buttons, the headset has a lot of features, including the left to turn on / off the microphone, reduce the volume, move the next song, turn on the HearThrough feature (listen to the environment with the built-in microphone) out); The right is used to receive / reject calls, play / stop tracks, increase the volume and call virtual assistants. The more features, the more complicated the operation, including holding and pressing two times and pressing three times, make sure the user will have to get acquainted before mastering.
Referring to Jabra’s headphones without mentioning the software experience is a big flaw. When downloading Jabra Sound + software, you can adjust HearThrough, adjust EQ sound quality, change virtual assistant, change call features. These adjustments can also be attached to ‘presets’ such as riding in a car, sitting and working to quickly switch right on the notification bar. This is undoubtedly one of the most complete software experiences in the TWS today, one can hardly complain!
Jabra Sound + software interface
The software has the ability to display notifications to see the battery and switch between used presets
Although equipped with HearThrough ability to listen to the environment, the Elite 75t Jabra has not yet found a way to add active noise cancellation ANC. To be fair, not all companies can do this, currently only major brands like Sony, Apple and Huawei have ANC on their TWS headphones. In fact, the Elite 75t is capable of passive noise resistance as well if users choose the right kind of cushion with their ears.
We will be able to bypass the new generation headphones without active noise cancellation if they can deliver superior sound quality as the pair. Noble Falcon I have learned before, can the Elite 75t do this or not? The more complicated answer is yes or no!
First we have to assert, the Elite 75t is no longer too ‘marketable’ as the 65t version, the company has chosen a certain direction which is thick, dark and strong V-shape (click on the bass range and high to create excitement).
The bass of this pair of headphones has a lot of volume, ‘jumping’ out of the music that makes users pay attention from the first time they listen. The sub-bass (sub-bass) and mid-bass are all shown to explode, pull the tail more and flood into other sound bands, with high vibration. There are many foreign review sites saying this is a muddy bass, and I do not completely oppose this statement when in some light music Elite 75t does not clearly show the body (body) of the drum, so this strip is soft and has invaded the singer’s voice
We can adjust the bass range to reduce in volume, as well as more compact with EQ in the software, but the company makes the default sound quality is not to listen to soft music but the Pop, Dance songs ‘fluttering’, for bass-head, so if you have to adjust the EQ, users should find a pair of headphones for the right purpose, it will be better.
Like any pair of V-shape headphones, the mid section will be the weakest of the Jabra Elite 75t. But Jabra’s way of doing is different from other brands in that instead of putting the singer’s voice backward, this part is still moving forward, just lacking in thickness. Tone Alexis Cole in When you wish upon a star quite clean, detailed enough to be clear on the piano background. But as mentioned, compared to the other pairs of headphones, the middle part of the Elite 75t lacks in thickness, so the listener will have the feeling that the singer sings in the center of his head and there are no sounds echoing to both ears.
V-shape sound quality can not be completed without the high sound is also boosted like bass. Like the Elite 65t, the Elite 75t does not have the highest band to touch the highest frequencies, whereas the playing space is sufficient, not submerged in the bass section has also been made very heavy in the background. It would be better if the company put this sound strip further away from the user, creating a more spacious soundstage – the point that the Elite 75t is still lacking compared to rivals in the price range.
Subjectively evaluated, the Elite 75t is not a pair of headphones geared towards high-tech in sound reproduction but instead comes up with a kind of ‘fun’ expression, ‘covering’ a vibrant layer of songs. is shown.
Had his own personality
To sum up, Jabra Elite 75t There are three main upgrades: battery life, a smaller case design for comfort and a heavy, thick, rich and vibrant sound quality. While it still lacks the most advanced features like active noise canceling, touch-sensitive face, but in general, this is a less ‘safe’ pair of headphones than the Elite 65t, with a bit of personality to prevent users feel bored.
I’m not a ‘fan’ of the Jabra Elite 75t, otherwise if any product on the market is directed towards the same sound, it will not be good, ‘every tree per flower per house per scene’. so that users have more options for themselves. Overall, this is still a pair of headphones worth attention in the price of less than 5 million, but surely Jabra will have to make more efforts next year if it wants to compete with the Sony WF-1000xm3 which is now almost dominating the market. school at this price.
