Picking the right pair of Jabra earbuds has gotten a little more tricky as the lineup has grown. Fortunately, we’ve tested all of Jabra’s current buds extensively and are ready to make that decision easy for you.
Whether you want quality sound for cheap or are willing to invest in something built to last from the gym to the office, here are the best Jabra earbuds to buy now.
What you need to know about Jabra earbuds
Before you pick up a pair of Jabra earbuds, there are some key things to keep in mind about the entire range. The company’s buds are fairly platform agnostic — they pair well to both iPhone and Android devices via Bluetooth, with a free Sound+ app that lets you do things like adjust sound profiles or activate special features. Some Jabra buds — like the Elite 4 Active — have Android-exclusive features (i.e., Google Fast Pair and Alexa support), but they still work very well on all types of phones.
Virtually all Jabra buds offer a HearThrough mode, which amplifies the world around you to help you stay aware of your surroundings (think Transparency mode on Beats Fit Pro or AirPods Pro).
And save for the Elite 3, almost all of Jabra’s recent earbuds have active noise cancellation (ANC), which we’ve found to be very reliable for blocking out unwanted noise when working or out on a walk. Jabra earbuds also generally excel at calls, with all of the below models holding up well during phone chats and work meetings.
