I’ve had really good experiences with Jabra over the years. They have always provided some terrific products that are Bluetooth-based, and I was pleased to review two more with the Elite 3 and the Elite 7 Pro.
Our Review of the Jabra Elite 3
On thing that Jabra wants to emphasize for the Elite 3 is “Free the Bass”, and once I put these on and started to play my music, I felt that bass be free. Another terrific feature is how it has four microphones, not to mention 6 mm speakers. So the Jabra Elite 3 will be great for your music, as well as your phone calls.
They fit in the ear very, very well, and you can use the HearThrough technology, which allows external sounds in but not the good sounds out. Then there are some really cool stats like this: 7 hours of battery time, along with 28 hours total of charging case. By the way, there is also mono mode, allowing you to use one earbud while the other charges.
By the way, the Jabra Elite 3 has IP55 rating to protect against rain. If you want the Jabra Elite 3, you can head over to the Jabra site and lay down $79.99 for it.
Our Review of the Jabra Elite 7 Pro
I have to admit that on a cursory glance, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro doesn’t look too much different from the Jabra Elite 3. However, besides the price difference, I believe that the Elite Pro 7 has some definite better sound.
Also, I’ll come to the cool stat of having 8 hours of battery time with 30 hours total with the charging case. It also has the same HearThrough technology as the Jabra Elite 3. The Jabra Elite 7 Pro but it has an advanced Voice Pick Up (VPU) sensor on each of the earbuds, and there is also a Jabra MultiSensor Voice to “reinvent calls on the go”.
So there is some very cool advancements here, and this makes sense, as it is the sixth generation of Elite here, apparently. Yeah, that is a quote from the company, and if you want to get a pair for your very own, head on over to the Jabra site and pay $179.99 for them.
Let’s talk about the Jabra Sound App
When I reviewed both of these fine wireless earbuds, I was given the option of downloading the app in order to pair them with my smartphone. Actually, I tried to pair them first, only to find they wanted the app first. Then, from the app, it wanted to go from my “Settings” menu in order to pair.
It was a little bit of a pain to get this to work, but I eventually got it to work, and I found that I could do quite a bit with the features of my Jabra devices with them. For example, the Active Noise Cancellation is adjustable from there.
