Jabra Elite 45h Review

The Jabra Elite 45h are the first wireless in-ear headphones from the firm. Bluetooth 5 connectivity, 40mm full-range dynamic speakers, and physical push-button controls are all features of these headphones. Even if the earpads collect ear-heat quickly and then return it straight, faux leather and memory foam make for a comfortable fit. The Jabra Elite 45h are a pair of entry-level Bluetooth on-ear/over-ear headphones.

The drivers provide outstanding audio, and the fit is comfortable. They also use the same app as some of our favorite Jabra models, which includes user-adjustable EQ and a variety of other handy features. The Jabra’s are punchily controlled and an all-around thoroughly joyful listen, making them sound like they’re worth anyone’s money.

Design and Build:

In terms of appearance and feel, the Jabra Elite 45h are best described as ‘useful.’ Sure, the plastics are thin, but they don’t feel flimsy, and they don’t creak or groan when you adjust the headband or when you put them on your head. However, putting the earcups to sit flat on your ears is more tricky than it should be, and the loose fit means they leak more sound than their locked design claims.


When listening at a reasonable volume, the Jabra Elite 45h offers a claimed battery life of 50 hours between charges. A 15-minute charge will give you another 10 hours of playback time. A USB-C port is located on the right earcup, but we doubt you’ll use it very often. Bluetooth 5 is used for connectivity, which while hardly cutting-edge these days, is more than adequate for listening to hi-res digital music files.


The DSP (digital signal processing) in the Elite 45h performs an excellent job of controlling the bass without diluting the overall sound identity. The headphones give powerful low-frequency response on tracks with intense sub-bass content, such as The Knife’s “Silent Shout.” This is a bass-forward sound profile that is not for purists, however, the program provides for settings that can significantly reduce the lows. The Elite 45h may produce an exaggerated, sculpted response that can be easily and rapidly dialed back. The vocals on this recording are presented with great clarity, with no sibilance at all. The mic’s signal is really strong, and it even has modest low-frequency response.

Battery life and Connectivity:

Although the Jabra 45h wireless earbuds lack aptX support, Bluetooth 5 is more than capable of carrying Hi-Res Audio streaming from Primephonic or Tidal. They take about 90 minutes to fully charge from the flat and provide 50 hours of playback on a single charge. We can’t think of a competitor couple who can match their endurance just off the top of our heads.


  • Audio performance with a lot of basses. 
  • EQ may be adjusted in this useful program. 
  • Comfortable on-ear fit 
  • Mic clarity is excellent.


  • Leaks have an Iffy call quality. 
  • It has the potential to overheat your ears.


With an app, the Jabra Elite 45h headphones provide powerful, user-adjustable audio in a comfortable design.They’re a great pair of headphones for working from home, and they’re an Editors’ Choice.
