Yes, the Jabra Elite 75t is not only meant to be paired with your Android phone (or iPhone). These wireless buds pair incredibly well with laptops, smartwatches, and even MacBook.

And the best thing is that the earbuds can stay connected to two devices at the same time, thus removing the hassle of pairing and repairing every time you switch devices.

In this post, we will show you how to pair the Jabra Elite 75t earphones to laptops, MacBooks, and other devices like smartwatches. And if you have a Bluetooth adapter on your PC, you can even have the buds pair to it, just like I did.

Let's get going, shall we?

How to Pair the Jabra Elite 75t to Laptop or Desktop

Step 1: To push the earbuds into pairing mode, press and hold the button on both the left and right earbud for about three seconds.

Step 2: On your Windows 10 laptop, open the Settings menu (Win Key + I ), and head over to Device > Bluetooth & other devices, and click on the Tap button.

Even if you turn off either the laptop/desktop or your buds, the earbuds will automatically pair to your PC or laptop when you take them out of the case, provided you are in range.

Pairing the Elite 75T with Macbooks is an equally easy and pain-free affair.

Meanwhile, press and hold the buttons on both the earbuds until you see the light flash blue. That takes about 3 seconds.

Step 2: Once the buds are in the pairing mode, they will feature automatically in the Bluetooth menu. All you need to do is click on the Connect button to pair them up.

Here, you will be able to tweak the output of the right and left earphones.

How to Pair the Jabra Elite 75t to Smartwatch

Some smartwatches like the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 and the Fitbit Versa comes with onboard memory to load music tracks and playlist. This removes the hassle of carrying your smartphones with you while out on your runs and walks. And the best thing is that you'll be able to listen to your favorite songs while your smartwatch logs all your fitness data such as steps, calories burned, etc.

Most smartwatches have different menus. Hence the pairing method will vary from device to device. Here we'll show you how to connect to Samsung smartwatches such as the Galaxy Watch and the Active 2

Here, we assume that you have already pushed the buds into the pairing mode.

Step 1: On your watch, open Settings and navigate to Connection > Bluetooth > BT headset, and tap on Scan.

Once you've located the Elite 75t on the menu, tap to connect.

Step 2: Once you have added the tracks of your choice, make your way to the Audio widget. Tap on the little phone icon to switch the mode to watch.

If you want to reap the maximum potential of the Jabra Elite 75t, it's best used with a mobile device, for the Sound+ app bundles a horde of features.

While features like Soundscapes, HearThrough, and the built-in equalizer are popular, there are a couple of others as well, which enhances the overall experience.

Bonus: Save Equalizer Settings

Sure the Sound+ app comes with around five different equalizer presets such as Bass Boost, Smooth, Energize, etc. But did you know that the app also allows you to save a preset of your choice? Yep, you read that right.

All you need to do is tweak the graphic equalizer as per your preference and save it. And whenever you want it, you can switch to it via the Sound+ app.

To save one, head over to the Sound+ app and tap on the Plus icon next to Music Presets.

Tweak the bars as per your liking and hit the Save button. Simple, see.

Play the Music

Sure the default setting of pausing the music when an earbud is removed from the ear comes in handy. But if you ask me, I find it a bit annoying, especially when I want to listen to songs via a single bud.

If you are like me and would like to deactivate this setting, head over to the Headset settings through the menu at the bottom. Tap on Headset settings > Audio experience and disable the button for Auto-pause/resume audio.

Get the Most out of Your Earbuds
