Jabra Elite 85t review: The best AirPods Pro alternative


If you have $230 to spend on true wireless earbuds and want an alternative to Apple's AirPods Pro, look no further than Jabra's stylish Elite 85t with ANC.

Very comfortable ; Excellent sound quality ; Excellent noise cancellation ; Customizable controls ; Excellent call quality ; Wireless charging

Average battery life ; No aptX or LDAC

Jabra Elite 85t Review


Powerful audio performance with boosted bass and sculpted highs ; Top-notch noise cancellation ; Adjustable EQ and on-ear controls ; Water-resistant design

Expensive ; Default sound signature isn't for those seeking accuracy

The true wireless Jabra Elite 85t earphones deliver top-shelf noise cancellation and excellent audio performance, both of which you can tune to your taste.

Jabra Elite 85t review: noise cancellation isn’t the only big change


Jabra's top-of-the-line earbuds have noise cancellation and a new, more comfortable design.

Good noise cancellation ; Excellent on-earbud controls ; Comfortable, airy fit ; Bluetooth multipoint

Less bass than Elite 75t ; IPX4 water / sweat resistance is a downgrade ; Only the right earbud can be used independently ; New eartips aren't quite as snug

Jabra’s new Elite 85t true wireless earbuds have powerful active noise cancellation and a new semi-open design for much better comfort with no ear pressure. But they have slightly less bass and downgraded water resistance compared to the Elite 75t.

Jabra Elite 85t Truly Wireless Review


The Jabra Elite 85t Truly Wireless are semi-open headphones with a comfortable, stable in-ear fit. Their default sound profile is slightly bass-heavy, with a tou...

ANC can cut down ambient chatter. Graphic EQ and presets. Very consistent audio delivery. Stable fit. Well-built, portable design.

Okay microphone recording quality. Terrible passive soundstage. ANC struggles to block out bass-range noise. No stability fins. 6.5-hour continuous battery life.

The Jabra Elite 85t are good for neutral sound. They have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile that delivers a touch of extra thump and warmth. However, their treble range is veiled, so vocals and lead instruments lack detail. Luckily, you can customize...

The Jabra Elite 85t earbuds are the next evolution in Jabra's earbud lineup with powerful active noise-cancellation capability with a focus on high-quality calling. They aren't optimized for workouts and are best for commuters, travelers, and remote...

Excellent sound quality ; Simple, large buttons for control ; Advanced smartphone application ; HearThrough mode for safety ; Six mics for good quality calling ; Wireless charging case

Jabra Elite 85t review


Equipped with powerful specs and impressive ANC, the Jabra Elite 85t is a stellar-sounding sequel in Jabra's critically beloved series.

Bold, dynamic sound ; Strong active noise cancellation ; Deluxe design ; Lots of personalization features via companion app ; Robust spec sheet

Some bugs in the system ; Battery life could be better

Does the Elite 85t beat the AirPods Pro or the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds? Honestly there's no clear winner: the QuietComfort Earbuds delivers the best battery life and ANC, while the AirPods Pro are great all round. But if you want wireless earbuds...

Better sound, better ANC, better comfort – Jabra Elite 85t Review


Jabra Elite 85t Review – I love the Jabra Elite 75t / Elite Active 75t (check out my reviews on them) but as soon as I hear of the updated model, it's an easy decision. I've gotta give it a try and see what else can Jabra do.

Jabra Elite 85t is the best wireless earbuds I’ve ever used and reviewed here at Craving Tech, beating the Elite 75h by a good margin. The larger speaker drivers definitely boost the overall call and sound quality further, and the new semi-open earbuds...

Jabra releases the Elite 85t with advanced ANC, plus free ANC upgrades to current Elite 75t/Active 75t owners


Jabra Elite 75t and Elite Active 75t are definitely my favourite earbuds thanks to their excellence in audio quality and clarity. These earbuds have the best audio balance and clarity compared to the other earbuds I've reviewed in the past.
