If you're active and use earbuds during exercise, the Jabra Elite Active 75t's sweatproof certification and excellent fit may be beneficial, but consider that JBL Live Flex 3 offers LDAC for higher quality audio streaming if your device supports it. For frequent travelers, Jabra's excellent noise isolation and portability scores are advantageous, but JBL's longer battery life and smart charging case with LED touch display provide extended use and convenience. If you prioritize sound quality and battery life for longer listening sessions, JBL may be the better choice, despite its higher price. However, for secure fit during high-intensity activities and effective noise isolation, the Jabra might suit your needs better. Both earbuds work well with Android and Apple devices and have good built-in controls, but only JBL offers virtual surround sound, which could enhance your audio experience for movies and games.

Tom's Guide

Alex Bracetti | November 2022
"Audio is spacious and warm, delivering just the right amount of boom to kickstart your workouts without compromising the mids and highs. Battery life (both on a single charge and the charging case) is superior to all AirPods models. The extremely durable shell also reassures you that it’s going to take more than some severe environmental conditions to damage these buds."
