Updated
Best Jabra Headphones

We've currently tested 20 Jabra headphones. This manufacturer specializes in audio and visual equipment to help you stay connected to your colleagues. Their headphones tend to be designed for taking calls, so their integrated mics generally perform better than other Bluetooth competitors. That said, they still make a few versatile products like sports earbuds designed for more casual use.

Best Jabra Headphones


  1. Best Jabra Earbuds

    The Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless are the best Jabra earbuds that we've tested. These lightweight in-ears have a comfortable and stable fit, making them a solid choice for workouts or long listening sessions. They're also well-built and are certified IP57 for resistance against dust and being immersed in water. Their neutral sound profile is quite versatile for a variety of audio genres, but it can be customized to your liking, thanks to their companion app's graphic EQ and presets. They support multi-device pairing, which is nice if you're always switching between using your phone and laptop.

    Although the ANC doesn't improve much upon their passive noise isolation capabilities, they can still block out mid-range sounds like background chatter. Unfortunately, it struggles to cut down the low rumble of bus engines, which can be frustrating if you commute to work. Their battery lasts over eight hours continuously, which is good for long days at the office or on the go. Their carrying case supplies three additional charges if you need them, and you can also use one bud while the other charges.

  2. Best Budget Jabra Earbuds

    If you don't mind a more basic feature set, you might prefer the Jabra Elite 3 True Wireless, the best budget earbuds from Jabra we've tested. These earbuds are less expensive than the Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless and less customizable since you can't remap as many of the onboard controls. They also don't have ANC or support muti-device pairing. Otherwise, they perform pretty similarly, with a comfortable fit, a solid build, and good controls. Their stable fit and IP55 rating for dust and water resistance make them a good choice for workouts.

    Even though they lack ANC and block out less noise passively than our top pick, they still do a good job reducing office-type sounds like background chit-chat or a humming computer fan. They have a bass-rich sound profile that adds body and boom to your audio without overwhelming instruments and lead vocals. It's suitable for a variety of genres and types of content, but if you prefer a different sound, their app has a graphic EQ and presets for sound customization. The earbuds last about seven hours of continuous use and come with a portable case that holds about three extra charges.

  3. Best Jabra Over-Ear Headphones

    The best Jabra headphones with an over-ear design that we've tested are the Jabra Elite 85h Wireless. These well-built over-ears have a comfortable fit suitable for long listening sessions. They have a slightly bass-rich sound profile that delivers a touch of extra thump, rumble, and boom to mixes. Vocals and lead instruments still sound clear and accurate in your music, but you can adjust it using their companion app's graphic EQ and presets if you prefer a different sound. They support multi-device pairing, meaning you can connect them to your smartphone and PC simultaneously, and you can access your phone's voice assistant via a button on the ear cup if you want to use voice commands.

    With the ANC on, their battery lasts 34 hours continuously, but if you run out, they come with a cable, meaning you can use them passively. If you need to take calls or join meetings, their integrated mic offers decent overall performance, ensuring that speech sounds clear, even if you're calling from a busy street. They also have an active noise cancelling (ANC) system. They can't block out most of the low rumble of bus and plane engines, but they do a better job of cutting down ambient chatter. If noise isolation is important to you, the Jabra Evolve2 85 Wireless have an ANC system with a better performance. They have a boom mic instead of an integrated one, and it makes your voice sound more natural. They're quite a bit more expensive and have a less casual look.

  4. Best Mono Jabra Headset

    The best Jabra headset that's mono-only that we've tested is the Jabra Talk 45 Bluetooth Headset. It's only designed for calls and can benefit users who want to keep one ear open to hear their surroundings, as it doesn't block out almost any background noise. It's fairly well-built, very portable, and has an ear hook to help keep it in place, even if you move your head around. Not everyone will find the fit comfortable, as the silicone ear tips can feel a bit cheap and hurt the ear when you're wearing them.

    This headset has a very neutral mid-range, so whoever you're talking to sounds present and clear. The boom mic does an alright job of capturing your voice, although it has some trouble separating speech from moderate ambient noise. While the companion app doesn't offer many customization features, you can activate a feature that allows the headset to read out your text messages and emails. It also has roughly 7.1 hours of continuous battery life and goes into standby mode to help conserve battery life when you're not actively on a call.

Compared to other brands


  • Headphone variety. While most of Jabra's headphones are designed for taking calls, they still make many types of headphones, from sports-oriented, truly wireless earbuds to mono headsets for truckers or office workers.
  • Multi-device pairing. Most Jabra headphones can be paired with up to two devices at a time, which is handy if you like to switch audio sources between your phone and laptop.
  • Great mobile app. The Jabra Sound+ app offers a graphic EQ and presets to help you adjust their sound to your liking. You can also access features like talk-through or adjust their standby timer.
  • Recording quality is okay. For headphones designed for calls, their microphones tend to offer an okay overall performance. However, while speech will still be understandable, it may also sound thin and muffled.
  • High PC latency. Many of Jabra's Bluetooth headphones have high Bluetooth latency, which can be disappointing if you take many video calls.
  • Lackluster active noise cancelling (ANC) performance. Only a handful of Jabra headphones have ANC. In the case of the Jabra Elite 75t Wireless and Jabra Elite Active 75t Wireless, this feature was added during a firmware update. However, the ANC only offers a slightly better noise isolation performance than their passive noise isolation capabilities.

Jabra makes a variety of headphones that cater to the needs of business professionals and more casual users. Their sports-oriented 'Active' lineup includes headphones with high IP ratings for water resistance, although we don't currently test for it. Their office headsets focus on microphone performance and call-related features. The mics on their truly wireless headphones generally deliver a better performance than others on the market. However, mics on their call center or trucker headsets still struggle to reproduce speech clearly, even in moderately noisy environments. Jabra's active noise cancelling system also tends to only offer a small improvement over the headphones' passive isolation abilities.

Conclusion

Jabra makes professional headphones in a variety of different types. They tend to be well-built, are compatible with the Jabra Sound+ app, and support multi-device pairing.
