The Jabra Elite 7 Pro True Wireless are Jabra's top-of-the-line wireless earbuds. They're set apart from other buds in the Elite lineup due to their call-centric features like MultiSensor Voice, which uses four microphones to improve call quality. There are also sensors that activate when it's windy and transmit speech using vibrations along your jawbone. They have a noise cancelling (ANC) system, too, though, like most Jabra headphones, they fall short of competitors from Bose and Sony in this regard.

Our Verdict

7.8 Neutral Sound

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro are very good for neutral sound. They have a well-balanced, neutral sound profile that ensures the accurate reproduction of vocals and lead instruments. Their bass and treble delivery is also very consistent. You can tweak their sound with a graphic EQ and presets in the companion app. Unfortunately, like most closed-back earbuds, their passive soundstage seems small and as if coming from inside your head.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and presets.
  • Well-balanced sound profile.
Cons
  • Closed-back design.
8.0 Commute/Travel

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro are great for commute and travel. They're comfortable, portable, and have a compact case to protect them. Their battery lasts for more than 8 hours off a single charge, meaning they can last through longer trips. There are also three extra charges in the case. Unfortunately, even though they have ANC, they struggle to isolate you from bass-range noises like rumbling bus and plane engines.

Pros
  • Decent overall noise isolation.
  • 8.4-hour battery life.
Cons
  • ANC struggles with bass-range noise.
8.4 Sports/Fitness

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro are great for sports and fitness. They're well-built and lack stability fins, but they'll stay in place during moderate workouts. They have an IP57 rating for resistance against dust and being immersed in water and customizable controls for music and calls, so you don't need to pull out your phone at the gym. Their more than eight hours of continuous battery life can last through long workouts.

Pros
  • IP57 rating for dust and water resistance.
  • Stable fit.
Cons
  • No stability fins.
7.6 Office

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro are good for the office. They have a comfortable fit and more than 8 hours of battery life to make it through your workday. They leak very little audio, so you can turn up your music without bothering co-workers, and they block out office-type noise like conversations and humming A/C units well. They support multi-device pairing, too, meaning you can stay connected to your PC and smartphone simultaneously.

Pros
  • Good mic recording quality.
  • 8.4-hour battery life.
  • You can pair them with up to two devices at a time.
Cons
  • Mic has sub-par noise handling.
6.1 Wireless Gaming

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro aren't suitable for wireless gaming. They're Βluetooth-only, so they can't connect with Xbox or PlayStation consoles. They're compatible with Βluetooth-enabled PCs but have high latency, meaning you'll notice a delay between your game audio and video. However, their latency is lower with iOS and Android devices, so they're better suited for mobile gaming.

5.9 Wired Gaming

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

7.0 Phone Calls

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro are satisfactory for phone calls. Their mic has a good recording quality, and their app has a sidetone feature so you can hear your own voice during phone calls. Unfortunately, the mic has difficulty separating speech from noise; loud sounds can drown out your voice. Their ANC also struggles with bass-range sounds like rumbling engines, so you may not hear your call well on a busy street.

Pros
  • Good mic recording quality.
  • Great control scheme.
Cons
  • Mic has sub-par noise handling.
  • ANC struggles with bass-range noise.
  • 7.8 Neutral Sound
  • 8.0 Commute/Travel
  • 8.4 Sports/Fitness
  • 7.6 Office

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro come in three color variants: 'Βlack', 'Titanium Βlack' (black with grey accents), and 'Gold Βeige'. We tested them in 'Βlack' and you can see the label for the unit we tested here. We expect our results to be valid for the other variants.

If you encounter another variant of these headphones, let us know in the forums, and we'll update our review.

Compared To Other Headphones

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro are the call-centric sibling of the sporty Jabra Elite 7 Active True Wireless. They have a great app with many features, including ANC personalization, button remapping, and a graphic EQ and presets. They also have MultiSensor voice feature to help improve call quality and additional sensors to limit wind noise, although the mic still has difficulty separating speech from background noise. Unfortunately, like the Jabra Elite 75t Truly Wireless and Jabra Elite 85t Truly Wireless, the ANC doesn't offer much improvement over their passive noise isolation performance.

These buds have great controls. The buttons on each bud are very clicky and responsive. You can access many different functions and hear feedback when a command is registered. There's also a voice guide when the earbuds enter pairing mode. You can use either earbud independently, but you lose access to some controls. An 'Auto-Pause' feature also pauses your audio when you take an earbud out of your ear. You can turn this feature off in the app if you prefer. Unfortunately, the controls aren't intuitive, and double-pressing the buttons can push the earbuds further into your ears.

On the left bud:

  • Single press: Cycles between ANC on, 'ΗearThrough' mode, which lets you hear your surroundings without pausing your audio, and both modes off.
  • Press and hold: Lowers the volume.
  • Double-press: Activates voice assistant when not on a call (Siri, Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa).

On the right bud:

  • Single press: Plays and pauses audio.
  • Press and hold: Raises volume.

These buds have a bad passive soundstage, typical for in-ear headphones.

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro have a satisfactory noise isolation performance. They have active noise cancelling (ANC), but after updating to firmware 2.2.0, it still doesn't offer much improvement over their passive isolation capabilities. They isolate you from a lot of mid-range noise, like background conversations, and high-pitched sounds, like the hum of an A/C unit. They aren't the best choice for blocking sounds like rumbling engines, as they have difficulty reducing bass-range noise. If ANC is a priority, the Jabra Elite 10 True Wireless offer a better noise isolation performance.

Note: A fit test was performed using the companion app before each test to ensure that the headphones formed a good seal in our dummy head's ears. We also tried personalizing the ANC in the app and checked the effect subjectively. There still wasn't a noticeable difference between the ANC on versus off. We're also looking into the peak in the noise isolation response between 95-180Hz. It seems that there are resonances in our test rig's ear, which causes these frequencies to be louder. Subjectively, the affected frequencies sound slightly elevated, but they aren't as exaggerated as what our rig records. We will update our results after further investigation.

The big selling point of these headphones is their MultiSensor Voice technology, which the manufacturer advertises to improve call quality. However, there have been user reports of poor call quality.

The mic has good recording quality. Your voice is easy to understand and quite bright-sounding but also thin and unnatural. That said, some users have reported that their voices sound low and muffled when taking phone calls. As a result, we made phone recordings to assess call quality, and you can hear the recorded speech file here. The resulting voice recording sounds intelligible and fairly clear. We also ran a pass using our pink noise and subway audio samplings, but we couldn't detect poor voice quality via phone call either. That said, even though our unit doesn't have this issue, many users have still experienced it, and if you're one of them, please let us know in the discussions.

The mic has a disappointing noise handling performance. If you use them for a call in a moderately noisy place, your voice is understandable, but background noise is also loud and audible. Louder noise, like a passing train, can also completely drown out your voice. However, the manufacturer also advertises these headphones as having sensors in each earbud that activate when they detect wind and use bone conduction to transmit your voice to improve the mic's noise handling performance. Unfortunately, our testing equipment doesn't record these vibrations, so our results only reflect the mic's performance without that feature.

Note: They have a high Speech to Noise Ratio (spNR), which usually means that your voice is louder than background noise over the phone. It's because, during testing, the mic had much better noise handling when the dummy head was placed at 180 degrees or 90 degrees to the source of the noise (facing away from it or to the side) versus a 0-degree angle (facing it). The spNR graph doesn't reflect its actual performance in this case. The recordings reflect the mic's performance and match our subjective experience when we wore the headphones and tested the mic facing the speaker.

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro's battery performance is good. The manufacturer advertises them to last up to eight hours continuously, and we measured a little over that. However, battery performance varies depending on use. Luckily, their carrying case holds three additional charges, and you can get an hour of playback from your buds with five minutes of charge time. There's also an auto-off timer that you can customize via the companion app. By default, the buds enter 'Sleep Mode' after 30 minutes of inactivity or 15 minutes when not paired with a device.

The Jabra Sound+ app is great. It includes a graphic EQ and presets that you can use to adjust their sound profile, as well as a MySound feature that's intended to customize their sound based on a hearing test. There's also a fit test to help you determine the right tip size. You can personalize and adjust the ANC feature with a slider to change its strength.

It's also possible to remap the audio, outgoing call, and incoming call controls for the left and right earbuds separately. You can add some functions that aren't included in the control scheme by default: sidetone on and off, hold a current call and answer an incoming call, and switch between your current call and a call on hold. You may lose some other functions if you add them, though.

There are some other customization features for phone calls, including a slider to adjust the mic sidetone and presets that affect how you hear the other person's voice when you're on a call. The app lets you change whether your audio pauses or continues playing when 'Ηear Through' mode is on, toggle 'Auto-Pause' on and off, and adjust the auto-off timer.

These buds have excellent Bluetooth connectivity. Like most other Jabra earbuds we've tested, like the Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless and the Jabra Elite 85t Truly Wireless, they support multi-device pairing so that you can pair the headphones with up to two devices at a time. Their latency with PCs is high, though, so you'll notice a delay if you use them to watch videos on your computer. However, you won't notice audio lag using an Android or iOS device. Some devices and apps compensate for latency, though.
