Jabra Elite 85h review: Noise cancellation to rival Bose and Sony

The Jabra Elite 85h are over the ear noise canceling headphones. These headphones are built for people who prioritize quality over price. There was a time when Bose was the only high-quality headphone manufacturer, but now companies like Jabra are catching up. The Jabra Elite 85h headphones are reviewed by many other experts and all of them have praised it’s innovative convenience features.

Jabra is a Danish company specializing in best-in-class sound solutions. It’s been an industry leader since the last 150 years and is the only company that creates consumer headphones, professional headsets and hearing aids under one roof.

Their headphones have more features than any other product in the same price range. They provide more value for less money. However, some people may still find their products expensive. But I think the price justifies the quality and research that goes in while designing these products.

What do you get when you purchase these headphones?


The headphones are packed in a round leather case along with all the necessary cables in it. The headphones are placed inside by folding them, so you can carry this case anywhere you want. You can easily keep them in your bag. Along with the headphones, you will be getting a charging cable, headphone connector wire, and a connector.

The build quality is also really good. Just by holding them you can tell that they are made from quality material and they look stylish as well. The leather-covered headband is quite flexible so you don’t have to worry about the right size. The cups are well-cushioned and there are buttons provided to adjust the volume.

What I like about Jabra Elite 85h

What I found the most interesting about Jabra Elite 85h is to turn them on you just have to pull the cups out and turn them to the side. There is an indicator that lets you know when the headphones are on.

This features increases the battery life and lets you use them for a longer period. Furthermore, the moment you take them off from your ears, the current track will get paused automatically.

Battery life

The battery life is also quite good. You can use these headphones for more than 30 hours on a single charge. The battery life is even better with the noise cancellation feature turned off. Which is great because you won’t need this feature all the time. You can turn it on while traveling, walking on a busy street or sitting in a reading hall or a public library.

What I don’t like about Jabra Elite 85h

It takes time to get used to the headphones. Since the headband is flexible, you might feel a slight tightness if your head size is larger than that of an average person. This is is the only drawback I have noticed in Jabra Elite 85h headphones.


Jabra Elite 85 h headphones are available online for $299.99 only. You also get a 2-year manufacturers warranty.
