Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Jabra Elite Active 75t

(1/1)

I saw that at Costco, they had the QC down to $150. I don’t think they’re worth it at that price but that’s me. I would rather spend the $50 more and get the QC 35II that everyone has this Black Friday for $200. Those are at least still getting firmware updates and their battery life is a bit better

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Jabra Elite Active 75t

(1/7)

The microphone stem has also decreased in size and no longer juts out as far from the earbuds. But this doesn’t hinder voice call quality, which remains second only to the AirPods. Everyone I spoke to could hear me loud and clear.

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Jabra Elite Active 75t

(1/1)

Jabra managed to shrink the earbuds by 20 percent and came up with a design that’s both more subtle and more comfortable than the 65t. The previous earbuds were chunkier and had an awkward fit in some ears that caused discomfort over time, but I’ve experienced none of that with the 75t. The microphone stem has also decreased in size and no longer juts out as far from the earbuds. But this doesn’t hinder voice call quality, which remains second only to the AirPods

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Jabra Elite Active 75t

(1/1)

• The case itself is super small and can be stood upright. Think Apple’s noise-canceling Airpods charging case, but a little smaller. My wallet and keys both can be fit in one pants pocket with this. • Magnetic seal on the case makes it to opens easily, and stays shut when you want it

Warranty

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

Customer service is not amazing. Warranty is nothing special. Oh, and the stock cable is a cable. It's not great

In regards to your AirPods, if they really only lasted a few months, shouldn't that be a warranty issue? In the EU, where I live, we have a 2 year warranty law. All products must have AT LEAST a 2 year warranty. With some exceptions of course.

Durability

Jabra Elite Active 75t

(1/1)

Is it worth the extra dough? The short answer is that for most people, probably not. But if you're looking for a sports headphone for running and other athletic pursuits -- and you sweat a lot -- spending a little more on the Elite Active 75t may give you some added peace of mind that your headphones may hold up better over time.
