Jabra C820s Headphones Review

 

The name Jabra has become synonymous with Bluetooth earpieces for wireless phones. I have owned several and, in fact, I am currently using the BT250. I have come to expect quality products from Jabra, so I was very excited to find out about their new...

Excellent Active Noise Cancellation ; Very comfortable ; Removable headphone cable ; Good value

Sound can be a bit bright at higher levels and with rock music ; Noise cancellation feature slightly degrades sonic quality of music

The generous case size allows me to store a microphone headset for Skype wifi PLUS an extra long extension cable and extra battery. When traveling I don't sleep on the same schedule as the family so I use a lot of TV or computer or iPod time. This...

very comfortable over ear even with glasses and cap, case holds extra battery and plugs along with other gear

special narrow cable plug - lose it and you're screwed, pull the headset down to your neck to talk to someone and they are pretty bulky, in contrast ear-canal types are easy to remove

Waste of money, wouldn't buy this brand again.

Fine as long as they worked

Died after 4 months of occasional use

I received this head set last year for Christmas. I loved the product when received, good sound and noise reduction ability. It became a must have for any travelling I did. After 8 months of using on approximately 6 trips the plastic of the headband...

Good sound and noise reduction when new

Plastic quality inferior and customer support offered no, well Support

Good deal for $39. Watch the off price places.

Sounds surprisingly good. Much better than the in ear Shure buds I got recently. Bass extension particularly good and noise cancelling works well on steady state background noise

Case kinda bulky to carry around or on aircraft, but nose cancelling phones apparently have become some knid of status symbol in airports judging by the numbers of folks with them around their necks when catching a connecting flight

it is a OK head phone, for the price. i think i will look for other head phone next time.

cheap price tag, good quality of noise cancelling as well as the sounds that it produces

bulky, and the cheap plastic are easily broken. had it less than a year now, but i 've glued it a couple of times to prevent it from falling apart. very disappointed in this part. hissing sound when in low volume if you turn the noise cancelling on

Not typically a company associated with noise canceling headphones, in the c820s Jabra has nonetheless produced an impressive device. Offering a great...

Decent sound and noise cancelling, price

Not quite up there with Bose's QCs yet

An excellent choice of noise canceling headphones for the budget conscious.

For about a quarter of the price, Jabra's C820s noise-cancelling headphones deliver much of what the Bose QuietComfort 2 headphones offer.

Comfortable to wear ; Offer decent sound ; Effective noise-cancelling circuitry ; Fold up for compact storage in their included carrying case

Don't sound or feel quite as good as the QuietComfort 2

What's it all add up to? Well, despite failing to measure up to the model it chooses to imitate, the C820s gets most of the way there for a fraction of the cost. In other words, if you're looking for the poor man's Bose, this is it.
