Engadget Review

The Elite 65t avoids the common pitfalls of true wireless earbuds with great sound and enough battery life to ensure you’re not charging several times a day. If you’ve been looking to eliminate one of the last remaining cords in your life, this is definitely one of the best options. And it’s an affordable one, too.

Step aside, AirPods! Jabra’s Elite 65t are the fully wireless headphones to beat.

The Verge
Other companies have been putting the cart in front of the horse and tacking on extra tricks (like fitness tracking) before they check off the essentials: connection stability and decent sound. That’s what the AirPods got so right from the very beginning. The Jabras can’t match every aspect of that “magic,” and there’s nothing particularly unique about them, but the Elite 65t earbuds are very good at what they’re designed to do. They’re freeing, they’re dependable, and they’re a much-needed benchmark for this product category. These are the new default recommendation if AirPods don’t work for you.

The Jabra Elite 65t is a perfect balance of usability, features, and sound quality. These headphones offer a reliable connection and are a pleasure to use day-to-day. Their long battery life means you won’t be fishing for the charging case as often as the competition. While we had some niggles about design and fit, the Jabra Elite 65t do so much right that we can forgive its minor issues.

CNET
The well-designed Jabra Elite 65t truly wireless earphones rival Apple's AirPods and are superior in some ways.

Tom's Guide
The Jabra Elite 65t wireless earbuds deliver great sound, deep functionality and up to 5 hours of battery life.

phoneArena
When it comes to casual music listening, this is a pair to think about because of its custom equalizer settings, rich sound, and remarkably long battery life. Even though there are still some areas of opportunity, like its barebones charging case and poor noise suppression, there are still many favorable traits that make the Jabra 65t a solid offering to kick off the year with.

VentureBeat
Jabra Elite 65t delivers great sound quality, but if you want these earbuds for the Alexa voice control, don’t expect a great experience making calls, playing music, setting reminders, or navigation.

What Hi-Fi
They will be the ideal commuting companion for many people – but for the audio lover, we’d recommend saving up just a bit more for a superior sonic performance.

PC World
Though a few caveats apply, this is almost everything we wanted out of the second-gen Elite Sport earbuds and a solid product that cements Jabra’s reputation on the frontlines of the true wireless arms race.

The Gadgeteer
The Elite 65t’s have become my new goto headphones the rest of the time. Their comfort, secure fit, sound quality, and overall design are excellent and really the truly wireless earbuds to beat. I worry a bit about damaging/destroying them during an extra sweaty workout thus the reason I continue to use the Sports during long runs. But overall, I carry the Jabra Elite 65t earbuds with me throughout my day for listening to music on the bus ride into work, video on the elliptical machine, running stairs @lunch, or just walking around town.
