Jabra Elite 7 Pro: Review
- 1 Jabra Elite 7 Pro Specs
- 2 FAQs
Jabra Elite 7 Pro has created a strong presentation for various reasons, first is its true wireless that made it a well-known earbud over the years. However, the business just introduced three new models to revamp its lineup. The $199.99 Elite 7 Pro is the company’s new premium buds, while the $179.99 Elite 7 Active has the same features and sound but is better for exercises. The $80 Elite 3 earphones I evaluated in September are the entry-level option. Premium Elite 7s include greater sound, ANR, wireless charging, and water resistance. If so, what makes the Jabra Elite 7 Pro good, and who should buy it? Continue reading.

Price and Release Date
Wireless earphones range from $20 to approximately $400 for mainstream consumer versions. The Jabra Elite 7 Pro’s $199.99 price shouldn’t deter anyone from shopping for new earphones, especially compared to the $249 Apple AirPods Pro. Other popular options, like the Beats Fit Pro, cost the same as these Jabras and have similar features. Since October 2021, the Elite 7 Pros have been around. So it’s going to be substantially cheaper than retail.

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro comes in black, titanium black (gray) on black, and gold beige with a matching charging case and is stylish, but it doesn’t stand out. They look better than most mid-tier earphones, so that’s fine. These won’t impress fashionistas. There’s much to learn from these earbuds. Instead of capacitive controls like Apple AirPods, they have outside shell buttons. Most earbuds with integrated controls let you control audio playback and answer or reject calls without reaching for the phone.
More intriguing is the ability to remap single, double, and triple presses per side. You can perform six actions on the go, more than most earbuds. Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency Mode, and more app customization options are available (see next section). Mono mode and on-ear detection are included. Both are immaculate. Voice assistant support is available. Finally, Bluetooth Multipoint is appearing in more headsets, earbuds, and wireless headphones. This capability connects two devices simultaneously.
The Jabra Elite 7 sounds great. Naturally, earphones in this price range haven’t disappointed me. They’re all different and usually a few strokes short of great. These sound warmer without EQ. Mids are plentiful, and highs are well-represented, if not detailed. Bass is important to most people; therefore, there’s plenty here. I enjoy listening to it as much as anything else in this price range. Expect no audiophile experience. They both have five customizable levels, which is great, but I usually go all or nothing. Call quality is fine, but a little less clear than with my iPhone. This happens with most earbuds I’ve used.
If call quality is crucial, you’re looking at several earbuds to determine which affects your experience the least while letting you take calls without taking them out. That makes the Jabra Elite 7 Pro one of the best due to its four mics and bone conduction sensors. Don’t forget the app for fine-tuning. It’s easy to remap all the button presses on either side of the earbuds, flip between, and change the ANC and HearThrough Modes, EQ presets, and 5-band EQ to get the sound you desire. Many earbud apps lack a 5-band EQ. Its Soundscape option plays pink and white noise, ocean waves, and crowd sounds for sleeping or relaxing. I want to mention one oddity about these earbuds. Text notifications are absent. I can’t find a change or option in the app. If you’re glued to your phone and need a digital detox like me, this may be a problem.
Two hours and 52 minutes without ANC to drain the battery to 75% This is good since Jabra advertises eight hours of use. Earbuds that last eight hours on a charge are astounding, even though many are getting more efficient than the five-hour average. The charging case extends battery life to 30 hours, placing these among the best true wireless earbuds. Good news for charging time concerns. Wireless charging is available.
How good is the Jabra Elite 7 Pro microphone?
For mobile calls, Jabra MultiSensor Voice creates crisp voices. Two inbuilt mics pick up your voice and two eliminate background noise. A voice-pickup (VPU) bone conduction sensor projects your voice while attenuating everything else using algorithms. Ignore the fancy tech and jargon—the Jabra Elite 7 Pro doesn’t have call quality issues.
Has Jabra Elite 7 Pro ShakeGrip? What distinguishes ShakeGrip physically?
ShakeGrip is absent from the Elite 7 Pro.
Does Jabra Elite 7 Pro support Bluetooth multipoint?
The headset comes with a Bluetooth multipoint but for that, you have to update to firmware version 2.0.0 or later.
Can I deactivate ANC?
Click the left earbud button to disengage active noise canceling while not on a call. This switches between ANC, HearThru, and listening.
