Jabra unveils Elite Active 75t headphones

There are tonnes of new truly wireless headphones on the market – but add to that the Jabra Elite Active 75t, which have more features suited to those who love to sweat.

The Elite 75t were launched last year, but the new Active version shrinks down the size 22%, while adding better water resistance and maintaining battery life.

At CES in Las Vegas, Jabra announced that it's aiming to follow that success with the release of the Jabra Elite Active 75t, a significantly upgraded version of their predecessor.

Firstly, and most importantly, they'll offer up to 7.5 hours of battery life. A charge time that will increase to 28 hours with the carry case. That's the same as the standard Elite 75t and way more than the 5+10 in the Elite 65t from 2018.

We've criticised Jabra for poor comfort compared to the Jaybird Vistas and Apple AirPod Pro. So the Elite Active 75t's modified design is welcome, and helps them become ergonomically optimized for noise isolation and comfort.

There will be an increased IP rating from IP56 to IP57, meaning they'll be waterproof, and there's a new active grip coating for a more secure fit. That means they can be submerged in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes, and handle a bucket load of sweat from the fitness sessions.

Later in the year, we'll see upgrades to the Jabra Sound+ app in the form of Jabra MySound offering, individualized audio hearing profiles and programmable buttons across two independent earbuds.

They'll also keep most of the features that made the Active 65t a great option, including the HearThrough and the impressive level of audio dropout.

Lastly, 4-microphone technology will allow for crystal clear calls in every environment and the unit will be charged by USB-C.

The Elite Active 75t will be available from February 2020 at an RRP of $199.99.
