Jabra Elite Earbuds
Review date: Nov. 8, 2021
If you're more the sporty type or if you just don't like wearing big, over the ear headphones, Jabra's series of little earbuds might be for you. They do all the things: noise cancelling, custom sound levels for music, multiple microphones for calls, filtering out noise, and listening for you to ask Alexa, Siri, or Google to play that next song with 25-hours of battery life. All shoved right into your ears. These earbuds are truly small, truly wireless, and truly easy to lose. Best of all, Jabra seems happy to sell you their earbuds and not sell your data.
What could happen if something goes wrong?
And really, these earbuds don’t collect a whole lot of data on you. If you download the app to control certain features, which isn’t required to use these little headphones but sure makes things nicer, you’ll have to give us some basic personal information. All in all though, these earbuds feel safe. They are even the chosen earbuds of your *Privacy Not Included researcher.
