3. Fit, Stability, and Comfort
Like we said earlier, the earbuds are a little bit bigger compared to most models.
Some people might wonder whether they’ll actually fit securely in their ears.
Well, despite the size, the Jabra Elite 65t earphones are designed in such a way that allows users to enjoy a secure and comfortable fit, even during workouts or sports.
Their unique shape eliminates the need to have additional stability wings or fins.
Instead, Jabra has included Eargels that kind of stick into your ear, ensuring not only a secure and stable fit, but also increases comfort so you can wear them for hours without experiencing numbness, fatigue, or headaches.
The EarGels come in three different sizes, so you can simply choose a size that best suits your comfort needs and listening experience.
Of course, the lack of stability wings/fins means you cannot adjust them to fit your large or small ears.
That’s why the eagles are available in 3 different sizes to cater to different groups of users.
Plus the fact that they are wireless means they won’t hinder your movements.
Given that these earphones are mainly designed for sports, workouts, and all sorts of activities, their excellent breathability comes in very handy.
The earbuds are highly breathable which means they’ll remain cool, making them an excellent choice for sports, workouts, and any other rigorous activities.
Overall, these are some of the most comfortable earphones you’ll find and the fact that they offer a stable and secure fit makes them perfect for sports and workouts.
Plus their breathability and soft feel will let you enjoy an unlimited amount of listening experience.
4. Battery Life
The battery life of Jabra Elite 65t is pretty decent. According to Jabra, you’ll get up to 5.1 hours of battery life during continuous use from a single charge, plus an additional 10 extra hours in the charging case.
That makes a total of 15 hours which is enough to last you throughout the day.
5.1 hours of continuous use isn’t that bad for a pair of earphones. More would have been better but let’s just say that 5 hours is quite decent.
Plus the fact that you get an additional 10 hours while the earphones are in the case is quite impressive.
The earphones are clearly good at saving energy so you can enjoy your favorite music anytime you feel like.
You’ll also love the quick charge feature that gives you a whopping 1.5 hours from a mere 15-minute charge, which is impressive.
Speaking of energy-saving, the earphones automatically turn off when not in use so as to salvage the remaining power.
The only problem is that the auto-timer only turns off after 1 hour of inactivity.
Of course, waiting for a whole hour to turn the earphones off does waste power, which is a little bit disappointing.
But then, you can always turn it off when not in use to save power.
