You might know Jabra as the maker of noise-canceling headphones, call center headsets, or over-ear headphones. Jabra even makes video systems for people working from home.

Many people don't realize that Jabra is owned by the 150-year-old audio leader GN Hearing. GN is the 4th largest hearing aid manufacturer worldwide and the maker of ReSound hearing aids.

Over the last two years Jabra has quietly launched three distinct hearing aid offerings. In this guide I’ll review the ways they are different and who they are for.

I've had a chance to try each of Jabra's products and will share some of my thoughts on their performance who they might be right for.

Let's get into it!

Jabra Hearing Aid Options

Jabra's three different hearing aid options
Jabra hearing aid range.

Let's start with the basics. Jabra offers three hearing aids at this time: Jabra Enhance Plus, Jabra Enhance Select and Jabra Enhance Pro.

Let's take a closer look.

Jabra Enhance Plus

OTC, Earbud-Style Device

Trying On Jabra Enhance Plus Hearing Aids

Jabra Enhance Plus combines Jabra's headphone legacy and the hearing aid experience from GN.

The $799 product looks and operates like a traditional set of Bluetooth headphones but is self-customized to your hearing loss and can alternate between amplifying the sounds around you and playing music.

Think of this product as a hearing aid/headphone hybrid. It won't fully replace the need for hearing aids but offers a great starting point for someone who needs support in specific situations.

In my experience, Jabra Enhance Plus works best for a few hours at a time.

It is great for quiet conversations or TV watching. The in-ear design can create a boomy sound to your own voice, and I don't find Jabra Enhance Plus as comfortable as behind-the-ear styles for long stretches.

Jabra Enhance Plus devices connect to the Jabra Enhance Plus app, which will administer a hearing test and customize the devices to match your hearing loss. This device is sold over the counter and does not require a doctor's visit.

Important note: Streaming to the Jabra Enhance Plus app is currently only available through iOS devices.

Jabra Enhance Select

Quality Care Through Telehealth

Jabra Enhance Select in my ear.

Jabra Enhance Select (previously named Lively) offers one of the best values in the hearing aid market. The brand operates 100% online through Telehealth.

Jabra Enhance hearing aids are Bluetooth-enabled, rechargeable, and less than half the cost of the same technology in a local office. The brand also offers an industry-leading 100-day money-back guarantee.

I purchased Jabra Enhance 100 (the mid-tier option) and wore the product for a couple of months. Through that time I made use of Jabra’s Telehealth support and enjoyed streaming and rechargeable batteries.

How it works:

✔️ Start with a hearing test on Jabra’s website or send in an up-to-date audiogram.
✔️ With your test in hand, Jabra will program your hearing aids and ship them to you.
✔️ If you need further adjustments, Jabra’s hearing team will tune your program remotely.
✔️ Jabra offers 3 years of unlimited follow-up care with all purchases  

Price: $1,195 for a pair of battery-powered, $1,595 for a pair of rechargeable, $1,995 for rechargeable with the most premium sound quality.

If you have mild to moderate hearing loss, are on a budget, and want an audiologist to program your hearing aids to match your hearing loss, this is one of the most compelling products on the market.

Jabra Enhance Pro

Professional Quality Through Costco

Jabra Enhance Pro 20 at Costco.

Jabra Enhance Pro is a behind-the-ear style product offered exclusively at Costco. Costco members can get Jabra Enhance Pro hearing aids start at $1,799 for a pair and include a standard recharge hearing case. You can upgrade to a premium case for an additional charge.

Jabra Enhance Pro is nearly identical to ReSound's NEXIA device. Currently ReSound NEXIA is my go-to hearing aid; you can read my full product review here.

The most significant innovation in the Jabra Enhance Pro is the addition of a third microphone that sits inside the ear.

Most hearing aids only have two microphones placed on the body of their devices. The additional Jabra microphone allows the natural shape of your ear to impact sound quality.

Jabra Enhance Pro 20 also has a new Bluetooth protocol that will allow Auracast streaming in the future. Auracast will roll out slowly over the next few years with various public streaming options at Airports and movie theaters. The technology won't change your day-to-day usage now but might future-proof your hearing aids.

Customers who choose Jabra Enhance Pro are basically selecting a ReSound hearing aid through Costco.

My Full Review of Costco Hearing Aids

Are Jabra Hearing Aids Good?

In short, yes. Jabra's parent company GN also owns ReSound and swaps technology between the brands freely. ReSound, and Jabra are widely respected in consumer technology and audiology spaces.

In particular, I think Jabra Enhance Select offers one of the best packages on the market.

Which Jabra Hearing Aid Is Best?

Jabra Enhance Plus and Jabra Enhance Pro are different products for different use cases.

Reasons to choose Jabra Enhance Plus

  • Sleek earbud design
  • Higher-quality music streaming (iPhone only)
  • Self-fit at home through an app (no audiologist needed)
  • Lower price point at $799 per pair

Reasons to choose Jabra Enhance Select

  • Professionally programmed remotely and sent to your home (convenient)
  • Comfortable behind-the-ear style for all-day wear
  • Rechargeable and Bluetooth streaming enabled
  • Allows remote adjustments after an initial fitting

Reasons to choose Jabra Enhance Pro

  • Professionally programmed at Costco
  • Comfortable behind-the-ear style for all-day wear
  • Rechargeable and Bluetooth streaming enabled
  • Allows remote adjustments after an initial fitting

Jabra Enhance Plus could be a good option if you are looking for a second pair of hearing aids or a starter product with headphone capabilities.

Jabra Enhance Select is a great choice if you are looking for a true hearing aid for all-day wear and professional support.

Jabra Enhance Pro is a good choice if you regularly visit Costco.

Where to Purchase Jabra Hearing Aids

Jabra Enhance Plus is available online and at retailers like Best Buy.

Jabra Enhance Select is available online here. I recommend starting with their free hearing test.  

Jabra Enhance Pro is only available at Costco. Members can call their local store to schedule a hearing test and trial the product. Read more about the Costco fitting experience here.

Final Thoughts

If you are searching for a good pair of hearing aids, Jabra is a strong choice.

Jabra Enhance Select competes with the best-in-class premium products at half the price and Jabra Enhance Plus puts the power in your hands with at-home fitting and an innovative design. You can review all of my favorite hearing brands here.
