Review: Jabra Elite 75t ANC TWS Earbuds

Published

on

Jabra launched the Elite 75t almost a year ago and just a few weeks ago, the wireless earbuds started receiving an Active Noice Cancellation upgrade. So this is our review of the upgraded Jabra Elite 75t ANC earbuds.

Upon opening the box, you see the wireless earbuds and the charging case up front. There is a small box inside the packaging that includes the USB-C charging cable,  and the extra ear tips. There’s also a quick start guide to help you with the initial setup.

The charging case for the earbuds is easy to open with one hand and features a sleek design. Jabra has also managed to shrink the earbuds by 20 percent when compared with the 65t. The microphone stem has also been reduced in size and it no longer juts out from the earbuds. 

The earbuds are also IP55 water and sweat resistant. So if you workout in gyms, you don’t need to worry about the earbuds getting damaged due to sweat. The lid of the charging case closes magnetically, and the buds themselves are also snugly seated with magnets.

There is also a USB-C port on the charging case instead of the Micro USB port. Jabra promises up to 7.5 hours of continuous audio playback, and 28 hours of total running time if you count the extra charges from the case. The charging case can also be charged wirelessly. 

In order to connect the earbuds to your phone, it is recommended to download and install the Jabra Sound+ app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Once the app is installed, open the charging case and remove the earbuds to get it into the pairing mode. Then follow the instructions in the app to get the earbuds connected to your phone.

The Jabra Sound+ app lets you set ‘Moments’ which govern the hear-through level based on your current environment. You can also set the intensity of the hear-through mode, adjust the equaliser, and listen to various ‘soundscapes’. These include various canned sounds, such as pink and white noise, sounds of nature, and comforting ambience, all of which might come in handy to aid concentration or sleep.

The earbuds each have a physical button, an indicator light, and a motion sensor. The sensor is used to automatically pause music when either of the earbuds is removed, and resume when it is worn again. The buttons can be used to control everything on the earphones, including volume, playback, hear-through mode, and the voice assistant on a paired smartphone. 

A single-press on the left earbud enables hear-through (to be able to hear your surroundings); a single-press on the right plays or pauses music or answers calls; a double-press on the left skips to the next track; a double-press on the right activates the voice assistant on your paired smartphone; a triple-press on the left skips to the previous track; and pressing and holding on the left and right sides decreases or increases the volume respectively.

When you first connect the earbuds to your phone, it will automatically upgrade the firmware that brings the ANC goodness to the 75t. In order to continue with the upgrade, you will need to place the earbuds into the charging case and close it. The LED on the charging case will start blinking continuously to indicate that the firmware on the earbuds are being upgraded.

The earbuds are powered by 6mm dynamic drivers, with a frequency response range of 20-20,000Hz. The Jabra Elite 75t uses Bluetooth 5 for connectivity, with support for the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codecs. The earbuds also come with four microphones (two on each earbud) for calls and noise reduction during calls.

During our tests, the earbuds ran for a straight 7 hours, with the charging case offering 3 more charges before they needed recharging. The sound quality of the earbuds was impressive and the ANC feature worked really well. The bass levels were excellent for a good hearing experience, while the mids and lows are very well defined.

The hear-through mode was able to adjust how much ambient sound was let through, so you could hear your surroundings clearly, especially outdoors. The ANC made sure music and sound in videos were very engaging and immersive. 

For the price of AED 685, you get good sound quality, impressive design, decent battery life, and excellent call quality. If you are on the market for True Wireless Stereo Earbuds that also offer ANC, the Jabra Elite 75t could be one of the options you could look at.

Price: AED 685

Soundcore by Anker H30i Wireless Headphones Review: A Bass-Boosted Budget Buddy

Published

on

Soundcore by Anker’s new H30i Wireless Headphones is a new addition to the company’s already established range of audio products. The H30i sports a familiar on-ear design. Available in black and light ivory, the aesthetics are clean and minimalist. The build quality feels surprisingly sturdy for the price point of AED 130.

An adjustable headband with metal reinforcements ensures a comfortable fit for most head sizes. Soft, leatherette earcups provide decent passive noise isolation. At a feather-light 183 grams, the H30i disappears on your head during extended listening sessions. The earcups swivel flat for easy storage in the included pouch, making them a travel-friendly companion.

Sound Quality
The H30i prioritises bass. Bass lovers will find themselves grinning from ear to ear. Anker’s signature BassUp technology delivers powerful, punchy lows that thump satisfyingly on genres like hip-hop and EDM. However, this emphasis on bass can sometimes overwhelm the mids and highs. Instruments such as guitars and vocals can sound slightly muffled.

The saving grace is the Soundcore app. This app unlocks the H30i’s true potential. It offers a variety of EQ presets, including a custom option, allowing you to tailor the sound signature to your preference. The “Electronic” preset, for example, does a good job of boosting clarity in the highs without sacrificing too much bass. Overall, while the H30i might not be an audiophile’s dream come true, it delivers a fun and engaging listening experience, especially for bass enthusiasts.

Battery Life and Connectivity
The H30i shines in the battery department. Anker boasts a staggering 70 hours of playback on a single charge, which is phenomenal for wireless headphones at this price point. During testing, we achieved close to that figure, making these headphones ideal for long journeys or all-day listening sessions. Even heavy users will likely only need to charge them once a week.

The H30i utilises Bluetooth 5.3, offering a stable connection with minimal lag. Multipoint connection allows you to seamlessly switch between two devices, making it convenient for juggling work calls and personal music listening.

Call Quality and Features
Call quality on the H30i is pretty good, too. Your voice will be audible on the other end, but background noise might be a bit more prominent than with some pricier headphones. Integrated controls on the earcup allow for volume adjustment, playback control, and answering calls. These controls are fairly intuitive and easy to use.

The H30i also offers a gaming mode that prioritises low latency for a more synchronised audio experience. While the difference might be subtle, it’s a welcome addition for casual gamers. Unfortunately, the H30i lacks active noise cancellation (ANC), a feature commonly found in higher-end models. However, it isn’t a biggie considering the relatively low entry point.

Verdict
At its price point of AED 130, the Soundcore H30i offers exceptional value for money. The combination of phenomenal battery life, comfortable design, and powerful bass response makes it a compelling choice for budget-conscious listeners who prioritise powerful low-end. The ability to customise the sound signature through the app adds further value.

Price: AED 130
