Now with active noise canceling, Jabra's flagship true wireless earphones make a compelling case for your upgrade. However, a high pricetag might be out of your reach.Reviewed.com90JABRA'S NEW NOISE-CANCELING EARBUDS ARE SERIOUS AIRPODS PRO RIVALSApart from one notable flaw (for which a fix is reportedly coming) they’re about as close to perfect as true wireless gets.TechRadar80How do these wireless earbuds stack up against their predecessors?While they don’t quite cut it like the Jabra Elite Active 75t buds do owing to a slightly bulkier design, the Elite 85t deliver impressive performance thanks to some great audio quality, effective noise cancellation and decent battery life. However, they’re let down a little by the fit, which is just not on par with their more compact predecessor.Android Central80Big upgrades, at a costAn excellent pair of true wireless earbuds that challenge the AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM3 for ANC royalty, but a few regressions keep these from being the best wireless earbuds overall.The Verge80NOISE CANCELLATION ISN’T THE ONLY BIG CHANGEI think the Elite 85t earbuds are Jabra’s best earbuds yet: the noise cancellation is quite good, they deliver rich audio quality, and you can use them with two devices at once. But there are a lot of people who will be better off saving money and just going for the Elite 75ts. For me, the older earbuds fit better, and I prefer their noise isolation over the semi-open feel of the new buds. But maybe the combination of noise cancellation and an airy fit is just what you’ve been looking for. If the AirPods Pro don’t meet your needs, it’s hard to go wrong with the Jabra Elite 85t.Digital Trends90The best AirPods Pro alternativeThe Elite 85t will satisfy your need for comfort, quiet, and sound quality, for less money than its closest competitors.
