Jabra Elite 10 Gen 2 review: The last big hurrah

This is somewhat unique territory for Jabra because it usually replaces rather than reiterates its flagship products. And yet, here we are with the Jabra Elite 10 Gen 2, a pair of earbuds that look and feel a lot like their predecessors, only this time with extra features that would’ve been nice to have in the first place.

The good thing is Jabra didn’t break anything in its attempt to create a more expansive take on the Elite 10, making these Gen 2 earbuds among the best you can place in your ears. It’s just a strange situation, considering the brand is also stepping away from its consumer audio business with this launch.

Jabra launched the Elite 10 Gen 2 in June 2024, and should be widely available in retail and online stores until the company discontinues them. They start out at $280, though look out for potential price cuts at certain points along the way if retailers look to unload inventory. Despite exiting the consumer earbud space, Jabra says it will continue to support and update existing earbuds, including this pair, for “years.” They come in glossy black, titanium black, soft white, cocoa, and denim.

The Elite 10 Gen 2 look like carbon copies of their predecessors, right down to the construction, placement details, and the case as well. The dimensions are the same, as are the ear tips. Indeed, ear tips from the original Jabra Elite 10 will fit perfectly on these Gen 2 buds, maintaining the tight continuity that shows in many ways while wearing them.

They were already so comfortable to begin with, so there was no need to change how these fit. Still comfortable and easy on the ears, the rubberized coating remains an excellent design choice, as is the IP57 rating for dust and water resistance. It’s rare for earbuds that aren’t distinctly marketed as “sports” or “active” to have this level of protection, so it’s a big plus out of the box if you’re looking for a pair to run or work out in. You get four pairs of ear tips included to find the right fit.

Jabra focused a lot on usability as a way to augment the existing foundation, so there’s less of a focus on re-engineering how good the Gen 2 sound. A prime example is turning the case into a Bluetooth LE smart case, basically letting you plug it into any USB-C or 3.5mm jack and wirelessly stream the audio (via the LC3 codec) over to the earbuds. Where would this be useful? Think about airplane entertainment screens or even your TV at home when you don’t want to disturb anyone. Some exercise equipment also offers a way to plug in and listen, and this makes it easier to do cord-free.
