You can get earbuds from other brands, but Jabra has a well-deserved reputation for engineering intelligent audio solutions so people can enjoy better sound while on calls, listening to music or watching media. If you're looking for the best Jabra earbuds, you've come to the right place.
Make your life sound better with the top Jabra earbuds:
Best Overall: Jabra Elite 7 Pro
Thanks to its excellent call quality, great battery life and durability, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro is at the top of our best Jabra earbuds list.
Jabra has further anatomically optimised their EarGel design, providing an even better fit for your ears. The IP57 dust and water resistance leaves us little doubt of its ruggedness. Rest assured, the Elite 7 Pro can survive any adventure.
The Elite 7 Pro includes the new Jabra MultiSensor Voice technology, the latest in Jabra's slew of advanced technology. Jabra's MultiSensor technology combines four microphones with an advanced Voice Pick Up (VPU) sensor for crisper, clearer voice quality. Additionally, this feature is activated automatically when the excessive wind is detected in the environment and makes use of bone conduction technology to cancel disruptive noise. On top of that, there are a variety of ways to customise noise cancellation with the Elite 7 Pro in the Sound+ app. Make the buds even more uniquely yours with MyFit where you create a hearing profile to personalise control and the strength to noise cancellation.
Jabra claims the Elite 7 Pro has up to eight hours of battery on a single charge and 30 overall with the charging case.
The premium features of the Elite 7 Pro mean that it's on the pricier end. Should you be willing to invest, these earbuds will take you very far.
Overall, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro might be for you if you prioritise call quality and customisable features.

Best for Sound: Jabra Elite 85t
Offering a deep, booming bass and balanced soundstage, the Jabra Elite 85t gives your music more depth.
The Jabra Elite 85t maintains a sleek appearance. However, the buds protrude a little out of your ears to accommodate the active noise cancellation tech. Though it adds extra bulk, it's not so noticeable when you look at them in the mirror. The oval-shaped buds, according to Jabra, has a "semi-open" design feature intended to prevent the build-up of pressure in your ear and the silicon ear gels create a secure seal for better noise-cancelling. Even though the Elite 85t doesn't have the Elite 75t's rugged IP55 rating, it has an IPX4 water resistance rating which means your buds are protected against the odd splashes.
A unique selling point of the Jabra Elite 85t is the larger 12mm, in-built speakers. Apart from a wider and an even soundstage, it also throws in a deeper bass adding more layers to your favourite tunes. Another feature we love is its adjustable sounds. With 11 levels of sound to choose from, you can go from full Active Noise-Cancellation (ANC) to full HearThrough in seconds. With ANC, you can easily block out all of the sounds around you and fully immerse yourself into your own world. With HearThrough, you can easily toggle the feature to choose how much of the outside world you like to hear. A neat feature when you need to order your coffee to go.
Noise-blocking technology certainly depletes battery life, but the Jabra Elite 85t still lasts five hours. With its charging case, it extends the earbuds' run time to an impressive 25 hours.
While five hours of battery life is not too bad, it's still marginally shorter compared to all the other earbuds featured here.
Overall, the Jabra Elite 85t is well worth the investment for its superior engineering and sound quality.

Best for Budget: Jabra Elite 3
The Jabra Elite 3 delivers excellent features that belie its affordable price tag.
Jabra has opted for a rounded body with the Elite 3's earbuds that fits snugly inside the ear. Even though the buds are wrapped in plastic coating, it doesn't prevent them from feeling less of premium quality. It also comes with three sizes of silicone ear tips to help you find the best fit. Not only do the soft tips mitigate discomfort during long listening sessions, but they're also incredibly lightweight too at 4.6g per bud to provide you with a comfortable experience. The Elite 3 buds are IP55 rated and hence are protected against small amounts of dust and low-pressure jets.
What's good about the Elite 3 is it offers a Mono mode, enabling you to listen with one ear and pay attention to your surroundings with the other. Music listening is crisp, clear and at times, highlights backing instruments you've missed. The Elite 3 has Bluetooth 5.2 support. Reviewers remarked that signal dropouts don't happen as the Elite 3 provides a stable connection throughout.
A big feature that's missing in the Elite 3 is noise cancelling. While it's something you can close one eye to because of the price point, you can't help but wish to have distracting sounds blocked in some situations. With the Elite 3, you'll also miss out on automatic pausing - taking out one or both earbuds won't stop the audio
The Elite 3 buds provide up to seven hours of battery life on a single charge. The charging case adds another 21 hours, delivering 28 hours of playtime in total.
Overall, the Elite 3 are a pair of reliable earbuds at a good price.

Best for Workouts: Jabra Elite 7 Active
Looking for a new workout buddy? The Jabra Elite 7 Active qualifies as the best Jabra earbuds to accompany you in your fitness journey.
Workout enthusiasts will appreciate the silicone rubber material or ShakeGrip technology as Jabra calls it. Other than coating the buds with more grip, it also enables a deeper insertion into the ear canal, providing a more secure fit for most workouts. The Elite 7 Active shares the same IP rating as the Elite 7 Pro. Just like the Elite 7 Pro, the Elite 7 Active can withstand rain and sweat.
Noise-cancelling performance in the Elite 7 Active is great. The solid seal of the buds means low-frequency (think the rumble from an aeroplane engine) sounds only half as loud. The Elite 7 Active has six microphones with noise and wind reduction capability. To get the most out of these earbuds, it's recommended to download the Jabra Sound+ app and be updated with the latest firmware. Once you're connected to the app, you can adjust equaliser, noise-cancelling and dive into customisation options such as in-ear detection and voice feedback to name a few.
With a total of 30 hours between earbuds and its charging case, it's no wonder Jabra prides itself in the Elite 7 Active's battery life. These buds are perfect for longer stints of exercise.
All the good things aside, call quality is mediocre. Some reviewers reported background noises during their calls. Voices also sound distant.
Overall, the in-ear security offered in the Jabra Elite 7 Active makes it a great fit for workouts.
