Anyone who has or has had the Jabra Elite 65t can you guys confirm between the Airpods Pro and the Jabra Elite 65t which one has more BASS ?

APP has slightly more bass. That said, 65ts are good and you wont feel they lack in bass.
Both have a comparable sound stage with APP sounding cleaner.

If you want something where the bass is clean and has more separation than you might like the pros better. The jabras are a very solid earphone, but the bass is more muddy and has less separation. Everyone is different, but I don’t like the sound of the jabras very much. If you want even more bass and better sound, then look at the Sony wf1000xm3 or the master and dynamic mw07 plus or go. I think the pros are the best overall earphones, but best sound awards go to the Sony or M&D, with the jabras being last in the ones we are talking about here.

The 65t’s hurt my ears. The APP’s don’t.

The Jabras are less comfortable by far.

I think people are mistaking here the Sound Quality for the Fit and Comfort, I was asking purely from a Sound Quality especially from BASS Stand Point. I know and can imagine APP would be much comfortable. But for me Comfort at the cost of No or Zilch Sound Quality or BASS does not really make sense !!

The Jabra Elite 65t were the last IN-Ear Buds that I tested and I thought they sounded remarkably well, including the BASS, with the In-Built Equalizer that Jabra APP provides (Which APPLE does not) I think they are a very good option. But I am just holding on before I Listen to the APP and than make a decision.

Definitely a good idea to listen to them first since Apple offers this choice.

Ok if we are also discussing comfort -
I have used the Elite 65ts right from when they were launched and comfort wise i have no reason to complain. Could wear them all day. I also use a pair of jabra elite Active 65Ts and i dont find them as comfortable as they have some coating on them.

Having used the APPs for a week or so now I can say they are as comfortable the jabras.

All that said the SH momentums wireless earbuds are my number 1 for sound for the genre I listen. APP are massively convenient and have a pretty decent clean sound.

If you own the 65ts hold on to them and get the APP anyway.
When the APPs are charging you could pop in the 65ts.

It’s worth a try but, if they hurt my ears I don’t care how good they sound. Ymmv.

thats indeed the Number 1 prerequisite

I also believe the Sennheiser’s sound best but, they have too many issues. Short battery life, case discharges in standby and connectivity. At least that was my experience. I’m hoping the next iteration improves them.

The Problem is, I own neither of those Nor the Jabras nor the APP This would be my first ever maiden venture of owning a good quality In-Ear Buds and My inclination is APP but I want them to be better than what the original Airpods including the 2nd Generation sounded in the BASS area ( Which was down right Trash) and where I stay APP have yet to be launched (Outside the U.S) so

I have to agree. They sound great, but the case battery drain is why I sent them back. You could keep them plugged in all of the time, but all of that constant draining and recharging will just shorten the batteries lifespan. These things have a short life as it is.

Another thing to point out. If you make a lot of phone calls, the pros have the best ambient mode for this. One thing they do that all of the others do not, is allow your own voice to come through more clearly while speaking. All of the other ones, even with ambient mode, do not allow your voice to come through clearly. It’s muffled. I always feel like I’m yelling while I’m talking because my voice is muffled. The only other earphones that let you hear yourself while speaking were the open design earphones like the AirPods 1 and 2 and the Sabbats x12 pro.

Ditto and its such a shame!

For the case at hand i.e. about that BASS (no pun)- I think its hard to be disappointed by the jabra elite 65ts or the APP.
APPs are slightly better in my view in terms of the BASS and sound cleaner overall between the two.

Agree but the jabra 65Ts also allows your own voice in call and it can be controlled in their app. Its pretty good. It took me a while to get used to that but in the end i liked it.

I am not defending or speaking for jabras its just that i used them a lot lot and now they are my spare earphones. The APPs have replaced them as my main earphones

Hmmmmm...my voice still sounds muffled. I just tried it out. Maybe I’m missing a setting? I had ambient turned on.

Theres a call settings tab in the sound + app. In there, you can tune the treble, bass and "hear through" /Side tone level of your own voice during phone calls.

Thanks for the heads up. It turned out that my earphones needed an update. I have to say, it still isn’t nearly as clear as the AirPod pros. I didn’t think it was working until I toggled the switch off and on. It’s only slightly better. If you’re not talking on the phone very much then it’s not a big deal. Out of all of the true wireless, besides the pros, the Jabras are very solid in their functionality and jabra is good with updating them. If you like their sound and comfort you would be happy with them.
