What makes the Jabra Elite Active 65t stand out from others is refined design, slightly more battery life, Bluetooth 5.0 technology, and support for Amazon Alexa, which will be available soon. It has better buttons and the dust and water resistant rating is slightly lower. They have an integrated motion sensor that adds more tracking features. Essentially, the Jabra Elite Active 65t are more sports-focused versions of their predecessors.

CNET ratings earned it an 8.2/10 and a statement saying they’re better than Apple’s AirPods in some ways.


  • Mics: Four digital MEMS with advanced noise cancellation technology
  • Sensors: Tri-axis accelerometer for motion sensing
  • Water resistance: IP56 rating
  • Battery life: Up to 5 hours of battery on a single charge, and up to 15 hours in total with the pocket-friendly charging case
  • Wireless connectivity: Bluetooth 5.0

A non-slip membrane coating keeps the Jabra Elite Active 65t in ears at all times. The built-in accelerometer transmits data to the new Jabra Sound+ companion app to track steps and cadence.

The earbuds fit more snugly to seal off the outside noise, delivering sound that is richer than the Elite Sport.

The seal removes ambient noise and enhances the experience over others like the open Apple Airpods. The tones are balanced, with full bass and clear vocals.
