Great sound quality
Smart assistant accessible
Built-in fitness tracker
Whether hitting the gym, running a marathon, or enjoying a leisurely stroll, the earbuds are going to be a great companion for you. They have great sound and are super comfortable. They give you a secure fit so you won't have to worry about them falling out and getting lost.
Of course, you aren't limited to the physical activities while wearing them. Some customers will simply use them for their everyday activities. If you have a long commute to work or you travel a lot, the Jabra's are an excellent choice for all your music needs.
The beauty of the buds is that they have a microphone built into them, making them an excellent option for hands-free calling. If you're on the go and need to take a call, you can do so with ease. The mic also makes it useful for use with the built-in Alexa, allowing you to use your assistant when you need her.
The headphones have a four-microphone design, giving you two mics in each bud. This will not only help you make clearer phone calls but will also enhance your overall listening experience. It will be able to sense when you're in louder and chaotic environments so it can aid in blocking the cacophonous roars and let you focus on your music.
The best feature about them, however, is the fact that they are truly wireless. They don't even have a cord connecting the two buds together, which you will find with most wireless headphones on the market today. You won't have to deal with the hassle of tangled cords, or them getting in the way while you're working out.
They feature a great battery life, giving you 5 hours on a full charge. The great news, though, is that they come with a portable charging case that will provide you with a couple of additional charges while you're out and about. They also feature fast charging options so you can get a little extra juice in a pinch. A 15-minute charge will give you about an hour and half of playback time.
The buds are dust and sweat resistant, which is a bonus considering they are ideal for those who like to be active. You won't have to worry about a little sweat ruining the earbuds while you're exercising.
You can also use the headphones in conjunction with the Jabra Sound+ app on your smartphone to give you better listening experience. You can adjust the way they sound, using the equalizer in the app, to provide you with better sound profiles.
Finally, these sports headphones come with a built-in motion sensor that will help you track your fitness. You will be able to monitor your activity levels without nothing other than the earbuds — no need to wear a smartwatch or an activity tracker when you are wearing these bad boys.
If you don't like the sound right out of the box, you can always download the Jabra Sound+ app on your smartphone so you can mess around with the equalizer. You can customize your listening experience to find the perfect sound quality for your genre of music. You can even save your settings so the headphones will remember your preferences in the future.
Considering that the 65t's are entirely wireless, you might expect them to have an inferior sound quality, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Of course, for the best experience, you want to get a tight seal around the bud when you put it in your ear, which can sometimes be hard to achieve. When compared to some of the other wireless buds on the market, reviewers stated that these ones sound much better, giving them the advantage over the others. You'll get a decent amount of bass, which is typical for sports headphones, but if you don't like it, then you can change it up through the app.
Overall, the sound quality is pretty good, and customers seem to really enjoy them.
Something to keep in mind, these headphones are optimized for use with phones and don't always work that well when connecting to a computer. You should be able to pair them to a computer easy enough for audio streaming, but you won't be able to control your calls because most computers don't usually support that.
The biggest problem that customers have for the earbuds is with trying to get the perfect fit. Sometimes, if the fit isn't right, then they can cause some discomfort and annoyance. They do come with a variety of ear tips to try to ensure there is something that will fit you comfortably. However, they don't always fit everyone equally, which can be discouraging.
If you can get a decent fit, then you will have no problem finding them comfortable. Overall, the majority of consumers found them comfortable and had no issues with how they felt in their ears.
They are rather small, which can cause a little bit of a problem for some people. They are easily lost so you will want to make sure that you are keeping tabs on them. Also, make sure that you are paying attention while you are on the go, you don't want them falling out of your ears and getting lost.
The buds are available in a couple of different color options. Even though they are barely visible in your ears, you can still get different colors, something that will best suit your style needs. You can pick between copper black, copper blue, copper red, solid black, or gold beige. Whichever color you choose, customers seem to really like the look and style of them.
The biggest problem that customers have about the longevity of the buds comes with the small size. They are easily lost so you should be careful to keep track of them. They may fall out of your ears and if you aren't careful, you could lose it, and you will be without your headphones.
They do have an IP56 waterproof rating, which is pretty good for something like this. All of the enclosed parts won't get damaged from most dust and moisture. A little dust might find their way inside, but not enough to harm them. You will also get protection from splashing water, rain, snow, or sweat. This drastically increases the lifespan of the headphones.
Ease of Use
You can connect your headphones to the Jabra Sound+ app on your smartphone, which is also pretty easy to use. It is straightforward; most people will be able to use it with ease. You can change your sound profiles and customize your writing experience, giving you better listening experiences.
Wireless headphones also work well with running armbands. The two complement each other and allow runners a truly hands-free workout. They can also make weight training a little bit safer by eliminating cords and reducing the risk your phone will fall.
The buds take about 2 hours to achieve a full charge when using the dedicated USB wall charger. If you find yourself needing a quick charge, you can get about an hour and a half of play time with a fast 15-minute charge.
The headphones are packed full of great features. They're also highly durable. Those things combined make them an excellent investment. The durability alone means that you won't have to spend the extra money, replacing them in the near future. You are saving you money in the long run.
Customers love the sound quality they get from them, especially for being wireless. They have a decent connection and a great battery life for what they are. If you find yourself needing a little extra battery, the case couples as a portable charger so you can power them on the go.
