The Jabra Elite 85h arrived around the same time as the Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose QC 35 II. It was difficult to compete with these two behemoths of audio headphones, but the Danish brand still made a good copy, which is much more interesting today than when it was released by being offered at half price for the sales.
If Jabra is better known for its excellent wireless headphones, the Danish brand also wanted to extend its know-how in the field of audio with wireless headphones. The Jabra Elite 85h is the first to offer noise reduction in the manufacturer’s catalog, in particular to compete with Bose and Sony. To be honest, it paled in comparison to the QC 35 II or the WH-1000XM3 by being sold at the same price as its competitors at the time, but today we can clearly say that it is a bargain now that it is available with a reduction of -50% on its initial price for the sales.
What is the Jabra Elite 85h?
- A comfortable wireless headset
- With an autonomy above the lot
- Effective active/passive noise reduction
- Audio quality at the rendezvous, without sound signature
Instead of 299 euros at launch, but now more usually sold at 249 euros, the Jabra Elite 85h wireless headphones are now available on sale at only 149 euros at Boulanger. It is displayed at 179 euros, but an immediate discount of 30 euros occurs immediately when you place the product in your basket.

After meeting the needs of athletes with its wireless headphones, Jabra has tried to target another audience with its first noise-canceling wireless headphones: the Elite 85h. No, it does not last 85 hours, but its autonomy is still gargantuan, to the point of clearly exceeding its two main competitors, Bose and Sony. Its battery recharges in just two hours and allows the headphones to be used for 36 hours with reduction activated, and 41 hours without. An excellent score compared to the 30 hours of the 1000XM3 and the 20 hours of the QC35 II and Headphones 700.
Effective noise reduction, but…
On the other hand, it does not dethrone the champions of noise reduction, even if it is rather effective on a daily basis. Where Sony offers to fine-tune the intensity of its noise reduction, Jabra makes it much simpler with an “on/off” button, where the rest is automatically managed by the headset’s AI to adapt as much as possible. can to your environment. That being said, it is still sufficient to cover the parasitic noises in a open-space.
On the sound side, Jabra preferred to focus on audio quality and it must be said that the result is almost similar to the models sold at a higher price. So yes, some codecs are missing, but the know-how of the Danish brand is felt in the ears. Moreover, it is difficult to see a real difference when the services of streaming such as Spotify, Deezer or Youtube Music have become commonplace for listening to music on a daily basis. We also appreciate its much less marked sound signature than at Bose, Jabra’s headphones trying more to get closer to a neutral result.
