I have had these earphones for a couple of weeks and my first impressions are: 1. The battery life is amazing. I have yet to charge them since the initial charge 2. They are very comfortable 3. I love the three settings. Noise cancellation puts me in a world of my own. In the kitchen with the tumble drier going whilst cooking dinner all I can hear is the sound from the headphones. The rest of the world is completely drowned out. If I am frying dinner then I will turn this feature off so I am aware that the fat is getting hot and if my family are asking me questions I will put it on hear through. It has several buttons which serve a number of functions. Noise cancellation, volume control, phone call answering are a few of the regular ones I use. The app is very straightforward to download and simple to use. The volume is enough but I find I am using the top end of the range. I would like the fit to be a bit better. If I look down they slide forward and this is on the smallest setting but I love the way you can turn them off by folding them flat. They are rather bulky to take out and about unless you plan to use them continuously whilst out but they are fantastic for travelling in a car or plane as they can completely block out external noise. I have earbuds as well as the headphones and both have their place in my life. However, I prefer the sound quality of these headphones. You can adjust the sound in the app or have and create an automatic setting. This will connect up to 8 devices but I am unable to connect two at once. For instance, if I am using my computer to listen to music, I have not found a way of also connecting to the app on my phone to adjust the sound. They are not too heavy and automatically cut the sound if I take them off. I can also pause the music by pressing a button on the right earphone. The more I use them the more I discover. Bluetooth is a fantastic invention but there is also an option to connect them via a cable if your device does not support bluetooth. I am so far very impressed with the sound, features and quality of these ear phones
I received the Jabra Elite 85h headphones as part of a review program in return for an unbiased review. As someone that loves music, having the right pair of headphones to do the music justice is very important. So unboxing the Jabra Elite 85h headphones, I was a little apprehensive but also excited. I already owned three pairs of bluetooth headphones and earphones and two wired pairs. The box looked good and robust, and when I slide the headphones out, the case looked nice and sturdy and would do an excellent job of protecting them. The build quality was superb. A nice thick headband supported and held two strong cups with a decent solid hinge that allows them to be folded up into the case. I then put them on charge so I could give them a long test for the first outing. Whilst charging them, I downloaded the Jabra app to my phone and paired them all up. In the box were a USB to UBS-C charger, a 3.5mm to 3.5mm jack lead and a dual adapter for plugging them in on an aeroplane (or similar). Whilst they were charging, the decision as to what to play first through then was a challenge. As someone that likes house music, I wanted a song with a great range of sounds, and a nice fat baseline to boot. Putting them on my head for the first time, I was hugely impressed with their comfort and how much noise they blocked out (without the noise cancelling active). And as someone that wears glasses, most of the time headphones are not comfortable with a big pair of cans on. These were a pleasant surprise for their size. The first song played did not disappoint. I was playing with the various settings to ensure I got the best sound I could out of them, and finally settled on a custom setting. The controls are easy to use, and the sound quality was phenomenal. The battery lasts an astonishing 36hours but so far I have only used about 22 hours. The anti noise cancelling can be set to responsive so will adjust to your surroundings, which was strange at first but I now see this as a big plus and it does great filtering out the noise around you. Call quality is really good with these, although not sure how clear I am from the other side with noise around me, but was pleasantly surprised. The controls are easy to use, once you get used to them, but having the app makes life easier. Overall I am really impressed with these and will certainly used them for all my travelling.
