Engadget Review

Jabra impressed us last year with a mix of quality and value on the Elite 65t. The Elite 85h is a well-built audio workhorse with amazing battery life and capable ANC, but the overall audio quality isn’t as good as the Sony 1000XM3. And at $300, they’re not undercutting the competition and making a value play. These are every bit a flagship set, right down to the price.

Pros
  • Insane battery life
  • Custom EQ and ANC modes
  • Simple and reliable controls
  • Better design than some of the competition
Cons
  • Cloth surfaces collect dust and debris
  • Solid audio but not outstanding
  • Not as good a value as the Elite 65t was
