While pretty much identical in specs, of more interest to us is the Active 65t which is geared towards active people. While not nearly as advanced as Jabra’s Elite Sport earbuds which have a whole host of features for fitness including heart rate, the Active 65t does have an accelerometer for tracking steps, enhanced grip coating and IP56 certification.
The unit is rich in features and comes with an innovative four microphone solution along with an optimised acoustic chamber which enables advanced noise suppression and voice enhancement. There is one-touch access to Alexa, Siri, and Google, so you can speak to the buds, instead of using your mobile device.
“Our third generation earbuds are testament to our industry-leading engineering capabilities, stemming from our GN Group heritage, for both daily on-the-go and sports use,” said René Svendsen-Tune, CEO at Jabra.
“This is a whole new range of superior sound products, based on our vast knowledge and customer feedback from earlier true wireless generations.”
The Elite Active 65t has five hours of listening time on one charge. This, however, goes up to 15 hours when you take into consideration the extra fuel provided by the portable charging case.

Demoed at CES 2018, Jabra Elite Active 65t will be available in Copper Blue and Copper Red starting mid-January. The buds will set you back $190, $20 more than the Elite 65t which are geared more towards the casual listener so lack the step tracking and water resistance.
