The recent Jabra Elite 85T wireless earphones with active noise reduction were a big hit with the Frandroid editorial staff when they were released. Today, they become even more interesting since a promotion on Amazon allows you to get them at 219 euros instead of 249 euros.
It’s simple, the Jabra Elite 85T are currently among the best active noise canceling wireless headphones around. The Danish manufacturer can then finally compete with the giants of this industry, such as Sony with its WF-1000XM3 or Bose with its QuietComfort Earbuds. The advantage? The price is down by around thirty euros.

After the 65T and the 75T, these Jabra Elite 85T still do not change the iconic design of the Danish brand. We then find the same round and very comfortable in-ear format as the old models, but with a slightly more compact size. Even the storage case went on a diet, now measuring 64.8 x 41.1 x 28.5 mm for a featherweight of 45 grams (without the headphones inside). Everything slips easily into a pocket.
The main improvement comes from the active noise reduction system. If the previous model had contented with an update to add the ANC functionality a few months after the release, the 85T, they offer it automatically. Different modes are available, from full noise reduction to full transparent mode. There are thus five levels of noise reduction that are offered and five levels of transparency, with a passive mode between the two. The result is simply excellent.
The sound quality is obviously at the rendezvous, even if we regret that the mids are a little too emphasized. The same goes for the absence of the AptX and LDAC codecs. That being said, the sound generally lives up to expectations, with a fairly warm signature by default. It is even possible to customize everything according to your desires thanks to a complete equalizer available via the Sound + application (on iOS and Android).
The 85Ts also offer many other handy features, such as multi-point Bluetooth which will allow you to easily switch to another device. It is very convenient to use on a daily basis, for example to switch from your smartphone to your computer without disconnection. Other features are available, such as the built-in sensor that automatically pauses your music when you remove the earbuds.
As for the autonomy of these wireless headphones, it is a bit below the competition. However, the 25 hours announced by the manufacturer are more than enough for daily use. The earbuds can deliver sound for just under 6 hours continuously. At 100%, you can then charge your headphones about 3 more times. Full charge via USB-C takes a little over an hour.
