The Jabra Elite 7 Active are well-built sports earbuds with a stable fit and an IP57 rating for dust and water resistance. They perform similarly to the Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless but have a worse mic recording quality. Jabra also advertises that they're made of a proprietary material called 'ShakeGrip' that helps give them a more stable fit. As a result, they have a similarly stable fit to the 7 Pro and most other Jabra earbuds that we've tested that don't have 'ShakeGrip'. You can customize their slightly bass-rich sound profile in their companion app. You can also use the app to remap most controls and adjust features like the auto-off timer. While their active noise cancelling (ANC) feature isn't very effective, they do a good job isolating you from noise like background conversations at the gym.

Our Verdict

7.6 Neutral Sound

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are good for neutral sound. Their default sound profile is well-balanced and suitable for a variety of genres. A bit of overemphasis in the bass range adds extra rumble, punch, and warmth to your audio, but mixes don't sound muddy or cluttered. Their app also includes a graphic EQ and presets that you can use to customize their sound. Unfortunately, our unit's L/R drivers are slightly mismatched, which causes some sounds to seem louder in the right driver. Ηowever, this may not affect every pair.

Pros
  • In-app graphic EQ and presets.
  • Well-balanced sound profile.
Cons
  • Small passive soundstage.
8.1 Commute/Travel

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are great for commute and travel. They're comfortable, well-built, and come with a portable case to protect them when you're on the go. They provide nearly eight hours of continuous battery life, which is convenient for long flights, and the case holds about 2.8 additional charges. Unfortunately, while they do a good job of isolating you from sounds like background conversations, their ANC feature struggles to block out bass-range noise like rumbling bus and plane engines.

Pros
  • Good build quality.
  • Good overall noise isolation performance.
Cons
  • ANC struggles with bass-range noise.
8.3 Sports/Fitness

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are great for sports and fitness. They're intended for sports use, and once you find a good fit, they're stable enough to stay in place during intense workouts. They're also well-built and rated IP57 for dust and water resistance. Their control scheme isn't the most intuitive at first, but you can remap most of the controls, so you don't need to pull out your phone to change the track or turn up the volume during a workout.

Pros
  • IP57 rating for dust and water resistance.
  • Good stability.
Cons
  • ANC struggles with bass-range noise.
7.5 Office

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are decent for the office. They do a good job of blocking out office-type noise like background chatter and humming computer fans. They're also comfortable, although they create a plunger-like feeling in your ear, which some users may not like. Their just under eight hours of continuous battery life is a bit short for a 9-5 workday, but on the plus side, they come with a case that holds about 2.8 extra charges, so you can top them when you need to. They don't have multi-device pairing, unfortunately, but Jabra says they'll add it in a firmware update in 2022.

Pros
  • Good overall noise isolation performance.
  • Case holds 2.8 extra charges.
Cons
  • ANC struggles with bass-range noise.
  • Ηigh latency with PCs.
6.0 Wireless Gaming

The Jabra Elite 7 Active aren't compatible with Xbox or PlayStation consoles. You can use them with Βluetooth-enabled PCs, but their latency is too high to be suitable for gaming. Although they have fairly low latency on iOS and Android devices, some users may still find the Android latency too high for mobile gaming.

5.8 Wired Gaming

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are truly wireless headphones, and you can't use them wired.

6.8 Phone Calls

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are alright for phone calls. They have an integrated mic that makes your voice sound clear but not particularly full-bodied or natural. It also struggles to separate it from loud background noise, so your voice may be difficult to hear clearly if you're calling from somewhere like a busy subway station. Their ANC feature also struggles to block out bass range noise, so it may be hard to hear a call that you take in a loud environment.

Pros
  • Mic has a good recording quality.
Cons
  • Mediocre noise handling.
  • 7.6 Neutral Sound
  • 8.1 Commute/Travel
  • 8.3 Sports/Fitness
  • 7.5 Office
  • 6.0 Wireless Gaming
  • 5.8 Wired Gaming

The Jabra Elite 7 Active have a similar design to other Jabra earbuds like the Jabra Elite 7 Active True Wireless and the Jabra Elite 3 True Wireless. The earbuds have a somewhat bulky, rounded shape, with angled tips and buttons on the outside surfaces. They come in three different colors: 'Βlack', 'Navy', and 'Mint'.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are comfortable earbuds. They don't put too much pressure on your ear and come with three different tip sizes to choose from. Ηowever, they protrude from your ears a bit and create a plunger-like feeling, which can be a bit annoying.

They have great controls. The buttons are very clicky and responsive, and you can control your music, phone calls, and ANC mode. While the controls are not the most intuitive at first, you hear voice prompts or audio feedback for many commands. You can remap most of the controls in the app. They have an 'Auto-Pause' feature that pauses your audio automatically when you take an earbud out too. Unfortunately, double or triple-pressing the buttons puts pressure on your ears, which is a bit annoying.

On the left bud:

  • Single press: When not on a call, cycles between ANC, HearThrough mode, and both modes off. HearThrough mode is intended to let you hear your surroundings without taking out the earbuds, and in the app you can choose whether it also pauses your audio.
  • Press and hold: Lowers volume when audio is playing.
  • Double press: Activates voice assistant.

On the right bud:

  • Single press: Plays and pauses audio.
  • Press and hold: Raises volume when audio is playing.
  • Double press: Skips to next track.
  • Triple press: Skips to previous track or restarts the track.

On either bud:

  • Single press: Answers incoming calls as well as mutes and unmutes mic while on a call.
  • Double-press: Ends or rejects a call.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active are very portable, like most truly wireless earbuds. While they're advertised to be smaller than other Jabra earbuds, they're slightly bigger than the Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless. That said, they still easily fit into bags and pockets.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active's default sound profile is quite neutral. There's a touch of extra thump and punch in the bass range that makes them well-suited for genres like EDM and hip-hop, but it's well-balanced enough for a variety of content and genres. If you prefer a different sound, their companion app has a graphic EQ and presets that you can use to customize it. Unfortunately, our unit's drivers are mismatched, and some sounds are louder in the right earbud. This issue may not affect every unit, though, and you may have a different experience.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active have superb peaks and dips performance. There are a few peaks and dips, and since the L/R drivers of our unit are mismatched, some are more present in one driver. There's a dip in the low-bass reduces thump and rumble in both earbuds. In the left driver, there's a low peak from the mid-bass to low-mid that adds clutter and muddiness to audio. There's a dip in the mid-mid that affects the right driver more than the left, nudging vocals and instruments towards the back of the mix. A peak from the high-mid to mid-treble makes some sounds more piercing or harsh.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active have an excellent imaging performance. The group delay falls below the audibility threshold for the entire range, which results in tight bass and transparent treble reproduction. The left and right drivers of our unit are well-matched in terms of amplitude and frequency response, which helps ensure that objects are accurately placed in the stereo image. Ηowever, the drivers' phase response is mismatched in the mid-mid range. This makes some sounds louder in the right bud and is noticeable with regular content. These results are only valid for our unit, though, so you may have a different experience.

Like most in-ear headphones, the Jabra Elite 7 Active have a bad passive soundstage performance. Since their design doesn't interact with your outer ear, sound seems to come from inside your head rather than from speakers in the room around you. They also have a closed-back design, so the soundstage seems less spacious than most open-back earbuds.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active have a good noise isolation performance. While they have an ANC feature, turning it on doesn't make an audible difference in how much ambient sound you hear. You may notice white noise or more pressure in your ear with noise cancelling turned on, though. That said, their design isolates you from a good amount of mid-range noise like conversations, as well as higher-pitched sounds like humming A/C units. However, they struggle to cut out bass-range noise like rumbling bus and plane engines.

Note: We performed a fit test in the app before each test to ensure that the earbuds were forming a good seal in our dummy head's ears. We also used the ANC personalization feature to customize the ANC to the dummy's ears and tested the results subjectively. The noise isolation seemed best with the personalization feature on its lowest setting, but the ANC slider turned to the maximum. You can see a comparison of the performance of the different ANC settings here.

Ηowever, battery performance can vary with real-life use, so your experience may vary.

There's also an auto-off timer that you can customize in the app, and similar to the Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless, you can use one earbud while the other charges.

You can also turn certain features on and off, like the auto-off timer, mic sidetone during calls, automatic call answering, and auto-pause, which pauses your audio when you take one of the earbuds out of your ears. Like the Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless, you can also remap the onboard controls and add some functions that aren't included by default: sidetone on and off, hold current call and answer an incoming call, and switch between your current call and a call on hold.

Also, some devices seem to compensate differently for latency, so your experience may vary.

Note: They don't currently have multi-device pairing, but like the Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless, Jabra advertises that they'll add this feature through a firmware update in January 2022.
