Jabra is one such company and its Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds have been mentioned as one of the better AirPods alternatives. In our latest YouTube video, we compared the Jabra Elite 65t ears to AirPods to see how they measure up.
Designers are Jabra's ear plugs closer and heavier than AirPods because each one comes with a battery, speaker, microphone, and other technology, and Jabra has & # 39; I have been able to condense these features in the same way that Apple can.
That said, they are small and dense in the ear, which is a plus, but the weight makes them uncomfortable to wear for long periods. Considering the smart fit, you can probably use these to work out even though Jabra offers an "Active" version specifically for this purpose.
As in AirPods, the Jabra Elite 65t has buttons for doing things like stopping a song or changing the volume, and when you count on them, the controls are easier than double-clicking on AirPods. One advantage – the Elite 65t looks like a "normal" pair of headphones because there is no tail coming down the ear, just as there is with AirPods.
Sound quality is an area where the AirPod is short, with Elite 65t offering noticeably better sound. In fact, when it comes to wireless headphones we've tested, Jabra is some of the best audio signals. Jabra offers an app where you can customize the headphones with music settings and an equalizer.
Like AirPods, Jabra's earplugs offer five hours of battery life, where the case serves as a way to store and charge. Jabra uses micro-USB to charge the case, which is not as convenient as Lightning or USB-C.
There are four microphones in Elite earplugs, so phone calls sound good and the microphones are also used for voice commands. Elite 65t has Alexa support built-in, and there are opportunities to use Siri on iPhone or Google Assistant on Android as alternatives. Apple recently collaborated with Amazon to let Alexa activate Apple Music, but it is only on Echo devices.
Jabra's earplugs are IP55 certified, which means they stop with little moisture and there are some AirPod-like features such as. An opportunity to pause music when removing an earplug. In the app you can also set audio images or do things like enable an opportunity to amplify the sounds around you.
Elite 65t earplugs have some useful features, but as with all AirPod competitors, there is no way Jabra's earplugs can match the functionality added with Apple's proprietary W1 chip. W1 allows AirPods to connect to an Apple device automatically, and it certainly extends the Bluetooth area.
All in all, there are some areas like sound quality, where the Elite 65t surpasses AirPods, but when it comes to comfort and ease, AirPods wins.
