How I Set Myself Totally Free With True Wireless Earbuds

Last year, in an effort to minimize cords and untether myself from a ubiquitous cell phone, I bought a pair of wireless headphones. Despite the need to charge them regularly and a sometimes spotty Bluetooth connection, I loved them. I could walk around while talking on the phone or listening to music without having my phone in my hand or my pocket. Freedom! Or so I thought.

My love waned as the connecting wire kept getting stuck to my neck or tangled up with my hair and purse straps. My love for them completely faded when one of the ears developed a short and my stereo sound was dependent upon just the right wire placement. Ugh! You should have seen me trying to hold my head perfectly still while singing along with Adele. Yeah, not so much.

Then, last month, I discovered that there’s a thing called true wireless earbuds! No wires at all? Nope, none.

Well! Naturally, I spent two days researching this new-to-me category and promptly trotted over to Best Buy and picked up a pair of Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbud Headphones. Game changed.

This is what true freedom looks like and here’s why we love them:

  • They fit discreetly in your ear.
  • They deliver powerful sound.
  • The call and voice quality is near perfect.
  • The battery lasts for up to five hours on a single charge.
  • They have the cutest little charging/carrying case that lets you enjoy up to 15 hours of use.

With true wireless earbuds, the fit is everything. If the buds are too big or too small for your ears, your sound experience will suffer. A lot of online reviewers complain about the fit of whatever buds they chose  but I lucked out with the Jabra Elites because they’re the perfect size for my ears. They also come with three sets of silicon EarGels so you can customize the fit.

Some other cool features include passive noise cancellation and HearThrough technology that allows ambient noise to filter through when you want to remain aware of your surroundings. There’s also the Jabra Sound+ equalizer app that lets you adjust the sound profile of your earbuds based on where you’ll be listening. For example, the commute setting gives you a little extra oomph.

One of my favorite features is the ability to pair the earbuds with two devices at once. That comes in very handy for me when I use my second phone. No switching required.

Expert Control and Ultimate Convenience – Jabra Elite 65t Wireless Earbuds

The many headset controls allow you to answer and end calls, reject incoming calls, control the volume, play/pause music, skip tracks backward and forward, turn on the HearThrough feature, and use your chosen voice assistant.

The pocket-friendly carrying/charging case ensures that you always have a safe storage place for your earbuds and keeps them charged. The buds charge whenever they’re in the case and the case is charged via micro USB. I’ve been charging my case every two to three days.

I bought the Titanium Black and they’re also available in Copper Black, Copper Blue, Copper Red, and Gold Beige.
