When I was in search for an ANC headphone, I had 3 options. Jabra Elite 85h, Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose 700. The review is also for the people who are in the same dilemma as me 2020.
#Design and Looks
Looks are very subjective. I have had the copper black version of the Jabra and it looked stunning. I also believe the design of Jabra is aesthetically pleasing comparing to the other devices listed. Bose 700 does looks futuristic but it's not a synonym for good looking. Both Jabra and Bose do stand out in the crowd.

3 - Sony WH-1000XM3
#Usability and Connection
The multi point connection is so underrated. Both Jabra and Bose offers connection to two different devices and switching between the devices happens seamlessly. On the Sony, you will have to disconnect from the device. On the contrary to many comments I have seen, Jabra and Sony can be connected to both laptop and mobile devices. I did not have a laptop with me when I was testing Bose and hence, I cannot comment on the same. Jabra has a simple touch button while Sony and Bose uses a touch interface. The tactile buttons on the Jabra is as accurate as it can get. While Sony and Bose may seem futuristic, not my preference at the moment for their inaccuracy.

No description needed. Sony is still the king even-though it was released back in 2018. Jabra is definitely not bad, but it just does not cut down the high frequency sound as much as Sony or Bose. But if this is your first ANC headphone and have never used the Sony or Bose, you will never notice the difference.

Now this comes down to personal preference a lot. I'm an avid listener and my preference of music is almost always are variations of Rock. I prefer clarity over bass, and I like my vocals and string to be "heard”. Guns and Roses, Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree are some of my favorites and when I listen to EDM, Daft Punk is where I start.
Bose had a very neutral but wide sound stage. Jabra felt similar but it was never loud enough. I could be listening to Sony and Bose at about 70 - 80% of volume while I had to turn it up all the way to 100 for Jabra. Sony had a lot of bass emphasis as expected. Someone who loves to listen a lot of EDM can pick up Sony without even checking out any other options in the market right now. As MKBHD rightly said, "Sony has a character to it's sound"

Both Jabra and Bose had a better call quality and connectivity. The audio output from Sony is not better than a ~5k INR Bluetooth headphone. It's not bad but not as par with the other two models.

#Value for money
1 - Sony WH-1000XM3 [ I got it at a price of 20,499 from Chroma store ]
2 - Jabra elite 85H [ I got it at a price of 16,499 and it's worth every penny given our device isn't faulty ]
3 - Bose 700 [ At 34,500 and no discount since it's a new model. Bose seems to be very confident about their pricing for some random reason which most consumers don't understand !! ]
A point worth noticing. Jabra and Bose support only SBC and AAC codecs while Sony support aptx, aptx HD and LDAC. Now this shouldn’t be a problem if you’re streaming from Spotify or listening to mp3 files. However, if your offline collection includes any FLAC files or other Lossless compression formats, Sony is the only option you have.
Despite my love for the device, I have ended up buying a Sony WH-1000XM3. Since both my devices were faulty, I was left with the choice of Sony and Bose. At the time of purchase, Bose was priced almost 14k more than Sony and the value over Sony did not feel worth paying an additional 14k. I was hoping the Sony will reveal MX4 during the CES 2020 but that didn't happen. And if the rumors are true, MX4 will be released only by September 2020 and I couldn’t wait till then.
Tip for Sony buyers - I have used Viper4Android on my device to counter the bass and the mids and highs are almost where I want right now.
Price: really top notch for the price
Build quality: these are built like a tank. And the textured ear cups are wonderful to touch.
Sound: clear and crisp. Exceptional mid range and you can listen to them for hours
Calling: Let me put it out there, this is the best headphones with ANC for calling, period.
Clamping force is adequate.
Battery: 36 hours. They last me a week and a half easily.
ANC: ANC is really good. Tested it on a train, plan and noisy bus. It works like a dream.
Fast charging is a boon with USB C
Rain and sweat resistant: not tried this, but a good feature to have
Slightly heavy than the competition ,but then its built to take some abuse
Volume: volume is on the lower side. Mostly I have to crank up to full to enjoy.
Bass: on the lower side, but I like it that way cause it does not cause ear fatigue.
All in all, is a value for money product for half the price of its competitors.
I got it working for very brief period of time and I found that noise cancellation was not upto the mark. I have experienced a better noise cancellation in headsets far cheaper than these. Sound quality was okayish, not good enough for the premium price paid.
I don't think it's gimmicky features like switching off by swiveling earcup e.t.c make for it's high cost.
I never got the multipoint bluetooth connection working. The headset hung-up when I tried this.
Overall not recommended. Too much the cost, too bad the headset.
I returned mine after 2 days of usage in which it did not work for 1.5 days. So that was an awful experience with my first premium headset.
The app is a huge +ve for Jabra, you can customise the sound for your needs... Overall good headphones for the price

I have researched for some time for the best performing mic as I spend hours on calls daily and I certainly was not disappointed with the Jabra 85 headphones!
Not only were they delivered far earlier than expected – they were so simple to setup (and were fully charged!)
They look sleek and stylish... Smaller than I was expecting which was a bonus. The material covering looks awesome - I will however need to see if it holds up after some heavy use over time.
It has a number of buttons conveniently located on both sides of the headphones. They are all physical buttons which I actually prefer over touch controls that I have struggled with on my Philips. They are really responsive and a number of voice prompts ensure you always know what's happening.
They cup around my ears gently whilst sitting securely which is a great for winter to double up as ear muffs! They are comfy to fall asleep with them on for a few hours on end and not wake up with sore ears!
The active noise cancelation is brilliant and the tap of a button to add HearThrough allows you to re-join the world around you without having to remove the headphones!
There are some cool features like turning on/off when the ear covers are turned and pausing / muting when taken off. There are a lot of advanced settings on the app for various Moments (environments). They also go to sleep when not in use which prevent that frustrating feeling when you grab your headsets in the morning and realise you left them on!
I can connect to multiple devices at the same time like my TV or laptop and phone. The Bluetooth range is the best out of any of my devices and I can walk around my place without any interruptions.
I called some audiophile buddies to test out the mic in different environments and on different (on VoLTE, voice, VoIP & WhatsApp ) and they were all super impressed!
I ran some audio tests and they handled low frequencies superbly. High frequencies also are fantastic although at my age I need the kids to test the upper frequencies!
They came in a handy rigid travel case with USB C charge cable, 3.5mm and airplane adaptor.
Overall I am completely satisfied with them and they have performed beyond expectation. Although they are my first Jabra’s – they certainly are not my last!
The build quality is superb - they feel luxurious and robust. The battery was charged to 80% upon unboxing the item so I could use them straight away. The headphones were easy to set up using the Sound+ app and even prompted me to download the latest firmware.
The noise cancelling seems to work well and I appreciate the ability to choose between the Active Noise Cancelling, Hear Through (which actually seems to enhance ambient sounds, conversations, etc. whilst music is playing), and switching the noise cancelling off altogether.
Having used Sennheiser prior to these, I can honestly say that the Jabras trump them!
Since I purchased and reviewed the Navy version of the Jabra Elite 85e, there's been one problem...that is my 10 year old son loves them so much for gaming and watching Youtube that I rarely get to use them. When I do find them, he's left the battery flat. This is where the fast charge feature kicks in and in 15 to 20 minutes I get more than enough time to listen to music or watch movies late at night at decent levels without waking anyone up. My time. ;-)
So, everything I said in my previous review (Below) stands, but I've been so impressed by the sound quality, the relative performance of the digital active noise cancellation (compared to my old Sony and Sennheiser NC headphones) and what surely has to be one of, if not the best battery life yet on a fairly priced, high-end wireless NC headphone. The run time from a good charge really is exceptional and the comfort is the best I've found so far. Once adjusted to your head these never get painful, heavy or too hot. So, earlier this month, I ordered a second Jabra Elite 85e...strictly for me. They are that good I decided to gift the navy ones to my son and keep the black/Copper pair that arrived today.
I'm really happy I did and will enjoy them on long-flights, late-night movies up loud and especially for playing my favorite tunes whilst I work. Calls are exceptionally clear, the app is good and there are no missing features I can think off.
Jabra has done their homework, the product is outstanding and it's hard to really fault it or see what they could do it really improve it much more for the money.
Highly recommended by someone who loves music, quality sound reproduction and appreciates durable, quality products. These surely are the best wireless NC headphones for the price I have found.
Original Review: Navy Jabra Elite 85e
I have been looking to buy a new quality NC headphone after my son dropped my last set of Bose NC and I read about the new Jabra's. I've had a few NC headphones over the years from Sony, Sennheiser and Bose and these beat them all hands down in audio performance.
The design and materials are great and the deep blue model really looks great. Very subtle, tactile, very study and thank god, there's no Beats style bling to be found here, these are headphones for grown-ups as their performance reveals immediately. The headphones have a wide range of adjustment (to fit my big head) and it takes seconds to find a supremely comfortable fit. The ultra soft earpieces are the best and you can wear these for hours chilling at home or on a flight without feeling uncomfortable.
The app is good and offers a range of settings and customisable EQ but unless your source material is that bad the fine-tuned balance of the Jabra Elite 85h is perfect out of the box and best left alone. Importantly for an NC headphone with a class leading 36 hour battery life (Sony take note!), these things are very light when wearing them but somehow feel sturdy in the hand.
Music Performance is superb, the key theme of these headphones is "balance" and the sound offers just that. The mids offer exceptional resolution without being too prominent or recessed as I've found on Bose and Sennheiser NC headphones. High frequencies are delivered with great life and energy without being fatiguing though are slightly soft and reserved compared to my reference AKG wired headphones. Bass is deep, quick and has great detail and texture and offers a real full-range foundation and support without being overly loud and slow/undefined as I've found on Bose and very much with Sennheiser NC headphones. They seem to natively have a boosted bass and high frequency range which is initially very impressive but it doesn't take long before the overblown bass and prominent treble starts to annoy. Here with the Jabra we have a more natural balance. The electronics here are great, the headset pairs over bluetooth very fast, the internal amplification and drivers stay clean until the very last click or two on volume where they start to reach their limits and the clarity and control starts to slip. These are at levels too high to listen to for any length of time so it's not an issue. So for music a very competent headset and the best wireless NC headset at $500 I've ever heard. The sound quality won't beat your reference wired hi-fi headphones with a separate amplifier but for the money and versatility, these offer a hell of a good sound that you can listen to all day without fatigue compared to the big names in the NC space. It's very hard to put on my Bluetooth speakers after listening to these and harder putting on my old wired headphones once you get used to not being on a leash again.
I've only tried the NC and call quality a few times (I just got these) but so far the NC seems to work as well as anything else I've tried and calls are exceptionally clear, no question.
I'm very happy to have tried something new and the Jabra looks like it will last me for quite a while and keep me playing my favorite tunes.
It looks like there's a new class leader for $500 NC headphones in the Jabra Elite 85h and it will be interesting to see how Sony and Bose will react with such a strong new competitor. Very impressed all-round - five stars from me!
Would I recommend them, yes - 5 stars, do you need to buy a pair? YES.
The sound quality is exceptional, and using the all you can also adjust base treble etc to your personal liking. The battery life is quite good for a headset, lasting well over 30 hours on my initial charge.
My biggest issue with the headset was when flying in a loud plane. Due to the noises and just how loud it was, the noise cancelling feature did not work. In fact, in an effort to cancel the noise, the headset made loud screeching noises and was worse than the noise from the plane itself.
I've always been a Bose can man and have been pleasantly surprised by these Jabra's largely due to their overall technical features (battery life gets you 33+hours listening on a single charge, impressive and smart noise-canceling, a nifty ear-cup-twisting mechanism to power down), very good sound quality and their overall understated design.
The Jabra Sound+ app makes it really handy to adjust the EQ and different noise-canceling modes.
Battery life is incredible, used them on two 13 hour flights and they still have around 45% charge remaining.
you start the experience with aNice Packaging, then Carry Case looks amazing with a Kind of Leather material
The Headset is Extremely light and comfortable, the sound is fantastic and it is coming with a Nice app to personalise your music settings
Very happy with this product
Absolutely love it!
