Echo Buds vs. Jabra Elite 75t: What’s The Difference?

Design and Comfort

Both the Echo Buds and Elite 75t have a stemless design. The Echo Buds are one of the smallest pairs we have tested. So, those with smaller ears, will gravitate towards Echo Buds as they’re a slightly better fit than the larger Elite 75t. The Elite 75t does not have a completely round design. Instead, there is a small point towards the front of the bud that holds the earbuds in our ears better than the Echo buds.

We found the Elite 75t to overall be more comfortable than the Echo Buds. While both are small and lightweight, the Echo Buds tend to go in your ear canal more, creating more of a suction feeling in your ear. Depending on your taste, this could be good or bad, but we prefer the lesser suction feeling. In addition, both of the earbuds come with 3 various sized tips to fit your sized ears better.

Sound Quality

The sound usually comes down to personal preference at this level. By no means do either of these earbuds sound bad. The main difference between the two earbuds is the Echo Buds’ bass bias straight out of the box. Not everyone is a massive fan of a bass-boosted sound, but we found an EQ mix in the Alexa app to equal it.

On the other hand, the Jabra Elite 75t are bass biased to the point its overpowering. Despite their small size, the low-end can be a little hard to rein in with an EQ app, but the sound is still excellent. The sound is rich and warm. You do lose some clarity towards the high end of the range, though. However, there is a good chance that you won’t notice the high-end loss when listening to songs on Spotify.

Battery Life

The Jabra Elite range has always had absolutely fantastic battery life, and the 75t is no exception. With 7.5 hours listening time on a single charge, these earbuds allow you to enjoy your music all day. Plus, the case gets you 28 hours of total run time.

The Echo Buds, however, are lacking in this category. You get 5 hours of use before recharging these buds in the case. And the case gets you 25 hours of total use time. For such a small earbud, this battery life is still impressive. However, you cannot beat Jabra’s numbers when it comes to battery life.

Echo Buds vs. Jabra Elite 75t: Which One is Better? Which One Should You Use?

After going through all the specs and testing out these two earbuds, pointing out the winner wasn’t an easy decision. We have to go with the Jabra Elite 75t earbuds as our winner. The battery life, comfortability, and pretty good sound quality make them hard to pass up, even though the price is a bit higher.

That being said, if you are fully invested in the Amazon ecosystem, the integration of Alexa with the Echo Buds might be better option. But unless you plan to use Alexa all the time, we believe you will have a better experience with the Elite 75t.
