I have used a lot of bluetooth headphones this year, including ear-hook, semi in-ear, and bone conduction, but I have never experienced in-ear true bluetooth wireless headphones. Fortunately, I chose Jabra Elite 3 in the Tencent Video Technology Channel, which also solved my last regret this year. Now I will take everyone into the Jabra Elite 3.
Packaging & Accessories
The main color of the Jabra Elite 3 outer packaging is off-white, which is slightly yellowish compared to pure white, which makes the packaging more resistant to dirt and looks simpler and more fashionable overall. The material used in the entire packaging is also thicker and very textured, and the internal partitions are also very dense, so there is no need to worry about violent logistics causing product damage.
There are not many accessories inside the box, including earphones, charging case, USB-C cable, warning and warranty leaflets, and 3 pairs of oval silicone eartips. The eartips of different sizes can fit the product well whether it is a male with a large ear canal or a female with a small ear canal.
In terms of connection, Jabra Elite 3 uses the latest bluetooth 5.2 technology, which has lower power consumption and a more stable connection. With IP55 waterproof and dustproof, listening to songs is also very stable in light rain, and rain will not cause damage to the earphones.
For wireless bluetooth headphones, battery life is also very important. Jabra Elite 3 earbuds can last up to 7 hours (listening to music) in a single time, and when used with charging cases, the longest music battery life can reach 28 hours. And it also supports fast charging technology, charging for 10 minutes, you can also listen to music for 1 hour.
For in-ear headphones, in fact, I am most worried about wearing comfort. Jabra Elite 3 scanned about 62,000 human ears around the world for 3D modeling, and the overall fit is still relatively close to the ear canals of Asians. In the actual test, the earphones will not be thrown off when running, combined with eargel eartips, it fits the auricle more closely, and also greatly reduces the leakage of sound.
In terms of calls, Jabra Elite 3 is also very good. It has built-in 4 MEMS high-definition microphones, combined with Qualcomm chips, and dual beamforming technology to filter noise. In the noisy subway station, as well as the bus station on the side of the road, the voices of both parties are very clear.
Jabra Elite 3 also has noise cancelling mode and transparency mode, which can be switched freely by clicking the left earphone. The noise cancelling mode is more immersive to enjoy listening to music, while the transparency mode is to receive ambient sound. For example, while walking on the side of the road to listen to music, you can also hear the sound of bicycles and cars, which improves your personal safety.
Jabra Elite 3 also supports APP control. Not only does the APP come with a variety of sound effects, I personally think that it is more useful to allow the headset to update the firmware online. There is also a headset positioning function. The APP will store the location immediately when the headphone is disconnected, so that even if you are drunk, you can know the location of the headphone when you wake up the next day.
In terms of sound quality, Jabra Elite 3 has built-in APTX decoding technology. This technology can be regarded as a hard-core standard for measuring sound quality in a real sense, and it is also a high-end decoder that only expensive headphones will be equipped with. The overall sound effect of the headphone has also been deeply tuned by the Nordic Acoustics Laboratory, which greatly improves the sense of presence and hearing of the headphones.
In addition, 6 sound effect modes are preset in the APP. There are corresponding modes for various scenes such as watching TV series, listening to music, and playing games.
A very dynamic song with a little hoarse midrange for girls, which tests the earphone’s ability to restore the sound. Jabra Elite 3 retains the voice characteristics of the female lead singer. The musical instrument surrounds the female voice, and the three-dimensional effect is very good.
Personally favorite songs, male and female duet singing more reflects the sound balance level of headphones. On the whole, the male and female voices are restored well, the drums are dynamic, the musical atmosphere is very strong, and it comes with stereo sound effects.
It is particularly difficult to restore the sad atmosphere of “水星记”. Guo Ding’s full magnetic voice and vibrato are kept in place in Jabra Elite 3. The background instrument sound is low, the graininess of the instrument and the texture of the music are all reflected very well.
In general, Jabra Elite 3 is still very good. Although it was my first experience of in-ear bluetooth headphones, it did not disappoint me. Not only the wearing comfort is very good, but also the immersion of listening to songs in the noise reduction mode is also very good. Especially the sound quality is very stunning, the vocals are forward and clear, and the music atmosphere is immersive. It is worthy of being an international brand, and it is a very competitive product at this price.
