Wireless sports and fitness earbuds for running and working out at the gym (2018)

Whether you're lifting weights, pounding the pavement, or powering through an intense HIIT session, these wireless earbuds are designed to stay in while you work up a sweat. 

  • Jabra Elite Active 65t Wireless Earbuds

    The Jabra Elite Active 65t wireless earbuds are targeted for active sports usage. They come in a compact carrying case that not only keeps it protected but also offers an extra two charges for the earbuds, giving you a total of 15 hours playback on the go. Because they’re specifically built to be used for sport, the Elite Active 65t also features a secure-fitting design to ensure they stay in your ears while you’re working out.

    With an integrated accelerometer to help track your workouts more accurately, we’re told that these wireless earbuds are IP56 certified against sweat, water and dust too.

    We managed to quickly run a few test tracks on the Elite Active 65t, and felt the earbuds delivered pretty good performance overall, with strengths in the highs and the mids, though the bass could be a little lean. For example, on a recording of Temptation by Diana Krall, we thought the earbuds did a good job of rendering Krall’s sultry vocals and picking out the strings in the piece. There was a good separation between Krall’s vocals and the backing instruments, but we felt the bass was just a little dry.

    Overall, it does seem like the Elite 65t is a strong offering from Jabra for the true wireless earbuds space. They’re nicely designed, fit in the ears well, and offer decent passive noise isolation to go with the good sound. – MW
