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.

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...

Review: Jabra Elite 85h Bluetooth Adaptive Noise Cancelling headphones

As good a sound over BT SBC as the competitors;SmartSound but offers more ANC variations than competitors;Longer battery life than competitors;Google Assistant offers a full range of services

Alexa skill is very limited;SmartSound can be a little disconcerting at first
