Do you live in complete silence? If so, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro earbuds are made for you! If not, keep reading before you buy.
Hey, this is Dean from WiseBuysGuys. I'm a little too excited to do this particular review. And not because it's good. I've done earbuds in the past and have purchased so many of them, always holding out hope for the one that could be the one I'm looking for that takes care of the specific needs I have. So, these are the Jabra Elite 7 Pro earbuds.
Before we start, I should mention that I waited for these to come out and then waited for a bunch of updates before casting judgment. I had high hopes considering all of the promises made by Jabra's advertising.
Let's begin by looking at exactly what Jabra promises with its Elite 7 Pro model.
These earbuds contain Jabra's "most advanced call technology yet," and are made for people who love powerful and rich sound for crystal-clear calls. They are designed using six microphones and advanced voice sensors that "automatically work" when the environment is windy. They even use "bone conduction technology" that transmits your voice through vibrations in your face to cancel out noise.
The Elite 7 Pro has other features that include HearThrough technology, Adjustable Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and access to your Google Assistant and Alexa with the tap of the earbuds. The model also comes with a re-engineered battery lasting up to 8 and a half hours and Jabra's new EarGel design for maximum comfort and a snug fit.
As I mentioned, I had high hopes for these earbuds, but what I found, at least for my needs, is that they are woefully inadequate. Sure, the sound quality is crystal clear, but these have been the worst I've found for picking up the background noise. In fact, I found that the extra microphones and special bone conducting technology allow the earbuds to pick up everything. So, unless you're talking in a sound-proof room, they are ineffective for use in a vehicle, at meetings, or in other loud places.
Now, for those of you who use them primarily for music, they are great. The sound quality is super clear, and they are comfortable. However, they are only good for that because if you're looking for a seamless Google Assistant or Alexa experience, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro also falls short on that. My issue with the Assistant is that the earbuds never pick up what I'm asking. For instance, I'll ask for the name of a movie director, and Google Assistant will tell me when the sun is setting.
With that said, here's a quick overview of the pros and cons I found with the Jabra Elite 7 Pro earbuds:
Great Music Quality
Crystal Clear Calling
Poor Noise Cancellation
Battery Life: 8 and a half hours with the case
Audio Codecs: AAC, SBC
IP Rating: IP57
Speaker Size: 6mm
Wireless Charging: Yes
Colors: Gold Beige, Titanium Black
Charging Port: USB-C
Here are some positive and negative customer reviews:
"They have a secure, tight fit. From my experience, there is no way that these earbuds will leave your ear unless you use your hands. I ran, went on a trampoline, and bobbled my head up and down when listening to Jimi Hendrix. Very sturdy, no wobble whatsoever."
"These earbuds are amazing. They sound great, especially if you have an Android, because of the Qualcomm AAC HD support, which is similar to AptX, which these earbuds do not support. The battery life is great.
"I wanted to like these earbuds because they were somewhat comfy. It seems Jabra's quality control might be lacking."
"I had these for half a day before returning them for a refund because of poor quality."
"I had to give these a single star, as no stars is not an option, as the microphone in my set made it sound like I could be a substitute teacher for Charlie Brown. Whenever I spoke to my wife on the phone, while using these, it sounded like I was under 6 feet of water, and I found I kept having to disconnect them to have a coherent conversation."
As you can see, most reviewers have the same gripes. From bad connections to poor audio quality and lacking software, I would not recommend the Jabra Elite 7 Pro earbuds. Instead, you may want to check out my 2022 Google Pixel Bud Pros review, as they really do check every box.
Well, there you have it, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro earbuds. I'd say pass, but contact me if you have any questions!
