Jabra Elite 85t review: Perfect for work, and play

The Jabra TWS earphones come with active noise cancellation and their sound quality is moderately good. It is priced at Rs 18,999 in India.

When it befalls audio, Jabra is a company with amazing understated style. It is not talked about much but has over the years done well to get a loyal set of users who trust the brand to fulfill what it promises, especially with the dependability that drives users’ interest. The unique bra Elite 85t is no exception to this practice.

Jabra Elite 85t review:

The Jabra Elite 85t comes in a compressed charging case that can comfortably fit into your jeans or coat pocket. Inside, there are two ergonomically designed pods that are not unique in design. But the two fit absolutely your ears with very little protruding outside. The duo performs a vacuum of its own to preserve noise out.

Over the week or so I used the device, there were quite a few times on which I started the EarPods also if there were no calls or music because they are so comfortable to be omitted thanks to the design and lightweight. Yet during long walks, trying to preserve pace with the conference happening on Zoom or Google Meets, the earpieces would stay entirely in place.

The Jabra Elite 85t comes with powerful noise cancellation and it is one of the most immeasurable have felt in truly wireless earphones. They evaded out most of the noise when I am operating early in the morning, permitting only a stray horn here and there and finally draining out the drone of my rickety ceiling fan and the repair work at my neighbor’s. You can tap the earphones to go to clarity mode and be more aware of your surroundings.


Also, the noise-canceling presented me with a mystery. As I was walking in my society, I noticed a few spots where the noise cancellation would recalibrate, maybe because the wind direction changed. The Jabra Sound+ gives you more control with noise cancellation as there are preset modes for commute and focus. I have enjoyed how the Jabra app provides-recorded soundscapes that help you adjustor concentrate. My personal favorites have ever been Ocean Waves and Cavern that help me create a space for myself, a hard ask these days when the whole family is cooped up at home.

The audio quality of the Jabra Elite 85t is rather good, suggesting a very rich sound profile which I believed was a bit biased towards the bass, but not in an unusual kind of way. Listening to Apple Music’s Groove playlist — my favorite when I get the luxury to go on a brisk walk without a call in my ears — I could experience the versatility of the earphones. It performs well when changing from the vocals to a bass-heavy thumb or just being for with high notes of a Carnatic performance.

But frankly, I used the Jabra Elite 85t much longer for calls than music and have nothing to fret about. This is with the few truly wireless earphones that don’t go into a tinny note as soon as you dial someone and that is immense. On Zoom calls, the voices are just and you get the feeling you are really in the room with your co-workers.

The battery life is excellent and can last 2-3 days even if you choose to wear this all the time for your obligation from home efforts.

In my books, the Jabra Elite 85t comes across as a fabulous option for those who need a reliable earphone for long calls at work and to unwind with some great music whenever that moment presents itself. Yes, this model is a bit pricey, but the top-notch noise canceling and audio quality make it worth it.
