The Jabra Elite 3 was already a great deal originally, but Black Friday discounts have made it an even better value
Jabra Elite 3
The Jabra Elite 3 are entry-level true wireless earbuds with powerful sound, up to seven hours of battery life, and a great price.
In the field of wireless audio, Jabra is a household name, not because it makes the most technically impressive premium earbuds that rival the best of the best. Instead, Jabra is known for making great value audio products that go well beyond their price category. The Jabra Elite 3 certainly fits that description. Launched as one of the best affordable wireless speakers around, this Black Friday deal makes it even more of a steal.
Featuring a pair of 6mm audio drivers, four microphones on each speaker, an IP55 water and dust resistance rating, and Bluetooth 5.2, the Elite 3 packs more technical hardware than the price would suggest. But they’re more than just hardware—Jabra’s sound tuning is excellent, and these headphones pump out rich sound with crisp highs, crisp mids, and powerful bass full of that “oomph.”
The Jabra Elite 3 supports the default SBC codecs along with the high-quality aptX codec, the latter of which is rare in earbuds under $100, with their current $50 price tag. While there’s no active noise cancellation, the silicone ear tips provide just enough of a seal around your ear canal to do a good job of isolating sound. Even in noisy coffee shops, these headphones.
The Elite 3 also features a transparency mode, which, again, is a rarity for earbuds at this price. You can customize the sound via the Jabra companion app available for iOS and Android as well. You also get seven hours of playtime on a single charge. There is no wireless charging, but you can charge via USB-C.
If you want a pair of wireless earphones that sound great, have modern technology like Bluetooth 5.2 and aptX, without paying over $50, you simply can’t beat them.
