Jabra Elite Active 75T: The right alternative for athletes
The Jabra Elite Active 75T is a good alternative to other references of wireless headphones from Sony, Apple and Bose. They take the solution introduced by the 65t Active by refining it with a smaller chassis. They weigh only 36 grams and are intended to be extremely discreet when placed on the ears. The sound delivered is of rather good quality even if it is necessary to go through a balancing in the parameters to obtain a better audio rendering. No noise reduction on this model, but good passive isolation with the addition of 4 microphones to hear external sounds while keeping the headphones aimed at the ears, a very practical function for urban athletes in particular. It also takes 7 to 7.5 hours of battery life on a single charge and 3 additional charges with the box provided.
