It’s no surprise that Jabra Elite lineup has been around for quite a while now – and we loved the Jabra Elite 75t, which we reviewed here. That said, every year the brand unveils a new line of earbuds and this time around not only we get to see a successor but a complete overhaul of the lineup for three distinctively different models which goes by the name: Jabra Elite 3, Jabra Elite 7 Active and Jabra Elite 7 Pro – ranging from a rather entry level all the way to a “pro-grade” of sorts of a True Wireless Earbuds.
Jabra Elite 7 Pro
Just like how the name suggests – the pro is their crème de la crème earbuds which claims to feature a ground-breaking call performance, all possible thanks to the new Jabra MultiSensor Voice technology and comes with Adjustable ANC, pretty much like the Active 85t and offers up to 9 hours of battery life, totaling up to 35 hours altogether with the charging case which is definitely a lot more as compared to their 85t. The MultiSensor Voice Technology it uses – is essentially a combination of 4 microphone and bone conduction sensor where it uses the algorithms to optimize the call quality for better experience. The design is relatively similar to the 75t and 85t, somehow its smaller than the 75t.
That said, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro does come up with a Voice Pick Up sensor – which allows the earbuds to trigger the noise, wind from outside to make the whole ANC and MultiSensor Voice work well in any given situation.
Jabra Elite 7 Active
The Active are for those who want the best earbuds to suit their active lifestyle. So, you name it – it has the best fit for fitness, running and so on – with the help of a new coating called ShakeGrip where it holds the ear buds in place. Now, whatever you see with the Elite 7 Pro gets brought down to the Elite 7 Active except for one main feature that the Pro has – the MultiSensor Voice Technology, which isn’t a feature that active users would want really but would have been nice to see it here too.
Jabra Elite 3
Finally, the Jabra Elite 3 – a slightly higher priced earbuds (vs. Elite 2) to the Jabra family of Earbuds. This might be the one, majority of users would be eyeing for and sure it might miss some features which the 7 has but they didn’t skimp out as much as one would think. It has Noise Isolation instead of Noise Cancellation but comes with Transparent mode and it comes with Qualcomm aptX HD which is definitely an amazing inclusion given in the past neither of the earbuds they announced had any aptX Codec and was limited to SBC and AAC. The battery life isn’t that shabby either – totaling up to 23 hours including the battery in-case.
One of the class leading feature Jabra has, that will not make it to the Elite 3 but will be available on the Elite 7 Pro and Elite 7 Active: it’s the MultiPoint Pairing technology, where users could pair the earbuds with 2 devices at the same time to stay connected which will be made available in an update in October.
Pricing and Availability
The aforementioned models above will be available in Q4 of 2021 but no specific dates btw, and consumers will be able to purchase them through Jabra’s official e-stores at Lazada and Shopee. That said: the Jabra Elite 7 Pro is priced at RM 999, followed by Elite 7 Active at RM 899 and finally the Elite 3 at RM 389.
There’s another Jabra Elite this time around, a rather affordable one – the Jabra Elite 2 which you can click here to read it.
