The Jabra Elite Active 75t offers better overall build quality and is designed with higher durability in mind; it's sweatproof and dustproof, making it excellent for exercise. They also have a slightly higher overall sound quality compared to the JBL Live Pro 2. However, the JBL Live Pro 2 is generally less expensive and still provides good sound quality and comfort, making it a suitable budget-friendly alternative for casual use, including calls and music listening. Both have similar battery life and are optimized for both Android and Apple devices, but only the Jabra has active noise canceling, which can be a consideration if you're looking for a quieter listening experience, especially during air travel or in noisy environments.

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."

What HiFi?

What HiFi? | February 2023
"The JBL Live Pro 2 TWS occupy an interesting space in the wireless earbuds market. They’re a step up from cheap wireless earbuds and allow you to access better sound quality without having to make the jump to more premium options from the likes of Bose, Sony and Sennheiser. They’re an entertaining listen, easy to use and manage to pack in a lot of useful features. We think they’re well worth a listen."
