Jabra Elite 85h review: like the rest, but not the best

 

Jabra's head is in the right place, but a few flaws keep it from greatness

30-hour battery life with noise canceling on ; Noise canceling is effective ; Automatically pause when you take them off

Sound quality lags the Sony 1000X M3 ; SmartSound feature suffers too many false positives in noisy city ; The large ear cups look bulky

Even with unrefined sound quality, the Elite 85h offer the best battery performance I’ve seen in over-ear headphones, they have competent NC, and their ear-cup-twisting mechanism to power down is darn handy to have. I’d like to see Jabra put more focus...

Jabra Changed How Noise-Canceling Headphones Work, and I Like It

 

It was exciting when Jabra announced its latest Bluetooth headphones at CES earlier this year. The $300 Jabra Elite 85h look like a beefed-up version of the company's well-reviewed Move wireless headphones, and inside there's an intriguing surprise:...

Beautiful and inventive design

Jabra Elite 85h Headphones Review: Great Bose Alternative with Killer Battery Life

 

For $250, the Jabra Elite 85h deserves serious consideration as your next noise-cancelling headphones. It's a versatile option that hits nearly every mark, from adjustable, dynamic sound to solid noise cancellation. Best-in-class battery life and a...

Best battery life of any noise-cancelling headphone ; Great sound reproduction ; Intuitive controls and listening modes ; Digital assistant support for Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa ; Companion app with personalized sound options ; Strong build...

Bass distorts in listening modes ; Bulky and heavy

The Jabra Elite 85h boasts the features and performance to give Bose and Sony’s noise-cancelling headphones serious competition. But is it a category leader?

Jabra Elite 85h hands-on review

 

CES 2019: Jabra's new wireless cans bring the noise (cancelling)

32 hour battery life ; Four different colours ; USB-C charging

Feel heavier than the Sony's ; Need more convincing on audio quality

The Jabra Elite 85h look great, have battery for days and boast some killer features, but it'll have its work cut out to beat the Sony WH-1000XM3.

Jabra Elite 85h review

 

Giving Sony and Bose a run for their money

Class-leading battery life ; Excellent ANC performance ; Stylish and comfortable

Lacks support for high-end codecs ; Bass could be punchier

The Jabra Elite 85h offer incredible battery life and terrific noise cancelling in a very stylish package. Purists may be put off by the lack of high-end audio codecs like AAC, aptX or LDAC, but the Elite 85h sound roughly as good as Bose's...

Jabra Elite 85h active noise cancelling headset review: It's good, but it isn't compelling

 

The Jabra Elite 85h is worth a closer look, but it's a hard sell in the face of stiff competition.

Jabra Elite 85H review: Stylish and functional headphones

 

Jabra's new ANC headphones take aim at Sony and Bose

Excellent battery life ; Convenient auto-pause technology ; Stylish

Performance doesn’t match the Sony WH-1000XM3 ; Not as comfortable as the Bose QC35 ; Expensive

While the Jabra headphones have a fun sound signature, however, they’re ultimately overshadowed by the excellent-sounding Sony WH-1000XM3, which also boast the best noise-cancelling technology around. For the same price, I’d recommend the latter and...
