Jabra Elite 5 Review


Rich, crisp audio with effective EQ ; Quality noise cancellation for the price ; Customizable controls ; Resistant to water and dust ; Hands-free Alexa support

Push-button controls won't appeal to everyone ; Jabra offers better options for just slightly more money

Jabra's true wireless Elite 5 earphones sit comfortably in the middle of the company's lineup with good sound quality and effective noise cancellation, though they don't quite stand out.

Jabra Elite 5 review


Another quality mid-ranger with disappointing noise cancellation

Great audio quality ; Compact and chic ; Lots of customization via Jabra Sound+ app ; Robust connectivity ; HearThrough is still one of the best transparency modes

ANC not as good as other Elite models ; Digital assistant and wear detection need work ; Button design affects comfort ; Missing some high-end Jabra features

Great sound, connectivity, and features provide the Jabra Elite 5 strong selling points, but its weak ANC is concerning for the price.

Jabra Elite 5


Jabra focused on the total package with its Elite 5 earbuds, balancing a wide range of features with solid audio quality.

Outstanding user interface ; Physical buttons on earbuds are a pleasure to use ; ANC is effective without going overboard

Good but not great sound quality

Jabra’s affordable, smartly designed, and feature-packed Elite 5 ANC earbuds will appeal to a wide range of casual listeners, but audiophiles purely interested in the best sound should look elsewhere.

Jabra Elite 5 review: Perfect balance of price and features


Jabra continues to fill out its lineup of compelling earbuds. After a week with the Jabra Elite 5, I've found my new favorite.

Extremely comfortable and secure fit ; Reliable big physical buttons ; Long battery life ; Wireless charging case ; Solid call quality ; aptX support

ANC is very subtle

The Jabra Elite 7 Pro received a software update to address a couple of the issues I had before with that model and I also see the price for them is currently down to $129.99, a $70 reduction. The Elite 7 Pro fit a bit differently than the Elite 5 and...

Jabra Elite 5 review: Great call quality but sound doesn't excite


The latest Jabra Elite wireless earbuds offer good sound and call quality, but do little to move sound performance on.

Ultimately, these are rated a four stars due to their mediocre noise cancelling, but remain a worthwhile investment where call quality is a priority.

Jabra Elite 5 review: Almost perfect for you


Jabra manages to find a way to give you much of what their premium earbuds already have at a lower price, but the Elite 5 are anything but mid-range when you listen to them. Jabra does it again.

Good audio quality ; Solid ANC performance ; Excellent fit and comfort ; Plenty of custom features in the app ; Reliable button controls ; Decent battery life

Not as rugged as other Jabra earbuds ; Default sound needs tweaking in Sound+ app

The Jabra Elite 5 are one of the best pairs of earbuds you'll find in their price range simply because the feature set and performance are deep and effective. Between the comfort and sound, there's plenty to like.

Review: Jabra Elite 5 | Perfekt Balance


Jabra Elite 5 er et sæt fremragende trådløse hørepropper i mellemklassen.

Sprød og klar lyd. Støjreduktion virker glimrende uden osteklokkeeffekt. Teknologien sikrer også bedre talekvalitet. IP55-certificering, trådløs opladning og Bluetooth Multipoint sikrer alsidig anvendelse.

Må indimellem give op over for “wall of sound”-musik.

Jabra Elite 5 Earbuds Review


The Jabra Elite 5 set the standard for features at their price, but their audio is flawed.

Deep, customizable features ; Top-notch controls ; Respectable battery life

Audio quality has flaws ; ANC doesn’t match the competition

Jabra Elite 5 review – Comfort on call


The Jabra Elite 5 offers excellent sound quality for both calls and music playback, with strong ANC performance

Superb sound quality for both audio listening and calls ; Excellent ANC performance ; Intuitive controls (physical button!) ; Smart assistant and Spotify Tap functionality ; IP55 sweat and water-resistant

Adjustable ANC feels pointless

It's hard to find anything to criticise about the Jabra Elite 5, as these true wireless headphones have superb sound quality for both audio listening and calls. The hybrid ANC is pretty darn good, albeit ANC customisation is less useful than it sounds....

Jabra Elite 5 review: Solid but not spectacular


The Jabra Elite 5 offer good sound and lots of features, but the brand's cluttered lineup leaves little room for them to stand out

Detailed and balanced audio ; Decent battery life ; Stacked with features

ANC could be better ; Hit and miss EQ presets ; Elite 7 Pro are often the same price
