The Jabra Elite 85t True Wireless Earbuds feature Active Noise-Cancellation (ANC) cancels the noise you don’t want to hear; HearThrough (our word for transparency mode) lets in the sounds you do. Furthermore, with 11 levels of sound – from full ANC to full HearThrough – perfectly engineered for the way your ear perceives changes in volume, you’ll never miss a beat.
I am a huge fan of the Jabra Elite design. They are sleek and have an industrial look with the dark grey and silver. The 75T had a bump on the end for a mic, this has now been shrunk for a more rounded look. The Elite 85t buds have been engineered with the most cutting-edge noise-cancellation technology on the market, to give you complete control over how you hear the world around you.
Jabra Elite 85t True Wireless Earbuds Review: Never miss a beat
The charging case ticks all the boxes for me. A good solid lid, magnets for the earbuds, and USB-C charging. Jabra has used advanced battery efficiency technology to make sure these little guys can keep up with you for up to 5.5 hours on a single charge with ANC on, with up to a total of 25 hours with the compact charging case. These are a perfect upgrade from the previous 75T model. They have polished and upgraded all the little niggles.
Sound quality is on-point. Overall, a nice balanced sound with a good amount of bass. The low end is deep and rich, with the higher end being crisp and clear. This is all helped with the tight seal, as you can hear all the sound. MySound expertly optimises and configures your sound via an in-app hearing test and then calibrates it on your headphones. The result is music that’s perfectly tailored to your individual hearing profile.
The 85T were easy to pair, and the connection is stable through my use. They turn on when I take them out of the case and will connect automatically. Also, will then disconnect when I put them back in the case. They have an IP55 rating, which means they are protected against dust ingress that could be harmful for the normal operation of the product but is not fully dust-tight. It is protected against solid objects and water jets projected by a nozzle (6.3mm) from any directions.
Overall, the Jabra Elite 85t True Wireless Earbuds are truly amazing. They have an excellent battery, sound profile and connection. Finally, thanks for reading! Also, have you got any questions?
