I am having a debate which one to get
The Jabra Elite 75T's or the new Airpods Pro. I want to use my choice at the gym as well.

I know the Jabra's are cheaper, but the Airpods have noise cancellation.

Does anyone have experience of using both and which one they recommend?

I don’t have the Jabra Elite 75Ts, but do have both APP and Jabra Elite 65T. I find the APP far more comfortable and also more secure in the ear. I do miss the volume control from the Jabras, but other considerations outweigh this. The APP connect automatically and Siri works better. Including reading out texts as they come in. However as I mainly listen to audiobooks, I can’t really comment on sound quality between the two.

My Jabra Elite 65t have worse sound quality and fit compared to the APP. I would say connection reliability is better than the APP. However, the Jabra have had several firmware updates that really improved the connection, they weren't that great in the beginning.

The Jabra passive isolation is very nearly as good as the APP NC.

Unless you're sweating literal buckets, you should be good with the APP because of the IPX4 rating. Just wipe them down after a workout, that should be all you need to do.

I usually have some trouble with wireless IEMs staying in my ears, but the APP (and the regular APs before them) have felt good in my ears and the APP have yet to fall out even when doing physical labour. Obviously it doesn't hurt that I like the "Apple sound signature", so the APPs are pretty much a perfect pair of earbuds for me.

So you rate them?
You think they are worth the price?

I have the opposite experience, the fit and sound quality are much better on my elite 65t’s.... in fact I had to return the APP’s because no mater what tip I used they were loose in my left ear. Also the passive noise isolation was just as good as ANC imo.... and I use them in the noisy streets of NYC and the subway.

I am waiting for the 75t’s that are being released in April with wireless charging case to upgrade.

Another thing to note, the Jabra Elites can connect to multiple devices at the same time. You can stop playing music on your iPhone and then start watching a Youtube video on your iPad and Jabras will automatically switch to the iPad. It's a really nice feature that the APP's don't have.
