I love headphones and have a pretty nice collection and today we are here to check out the Jabra Vega headphones with ANC which are really nice and come Dolby.

Presentation is excellent as is always with Jabra products and they come in the typcial yellow and black packaging that is easily identifieable and you know whom the prodcut is from immedialtey. And as always there is lots of information on the exterior of the box to let you know what you are getting.

Inside is padded which is great mainly for protection and transportation but nonetheless its good solid packaging, We also get instructions, cables and a carry case which is good to see for storage purposes be it at home of for when not in use which will keep the dirt at bay.

Build quality here once again is great, they have a robust headband covered in their soft rubber material which is easy to keep clean and is soft to touch and it also feels nice and is comfortable to wear even for long periods of time.

The cups on the Vega are really nice and overears so you are already blocking out most of the exterior noise then you have the ANC factor on top of this to give you crisp clear sound without distration and should you need to know whats going on there is an eavesdrop feature on the right cup which you just tap to turn on and off which is handy especially in an office or open space environment and you need to talk to a colleauge for example.

Given they are not bluetooth it might put some off though for me I use both wired and wireless Jabra prodcuts so its not really an issue for me but some have their own choice method. Having said that it means less to fumble with and keeps controls to a minimn which is a good thing,they are powered by one AAA battery which is included you will be happy to hear. Yeah I know some folk moan about the little things and they are probably right,the last thing you want to do is go searching for that battery.

Controls as I said are minimal yet simple and easy to navigate, There is one toggle thats it, This will light up to let you know you have ANC  on but they do switch off when you fold them over which is great they do not however fold inward like many headsets due to their construction and the cups fold sideways instead,not really a big deal anyway.

The sound quality is great as expected from Jabra and the fact these isolate external noise without having ANC on its a good start,the ANC only makes the experince better again. All sounds with mids,highs and lows reproduce very well hear and gives a great audio experience turned up to the max especially in a really quite environment. This can be also said if its a busy environment with ANC active and as I said the eavesdrop button which you just tap can let you into the conversation with ease. You can share your music experience too with a DUAL JACK set up,one on each cup which is need though this would be probably best used be it on a plane or perhaps travelling.

Overall I really like these,they are a not heavy either and can be worn for long periods keeping comfortable on the head,the cups as mentioned are really comfortable which for me is important as I like to keep headphones on for long periods of time at home be it in bed or just having a lazy day and using VR headsets for example. They also stand out and look nice with the big cups and I love the orange audio cable that comes with them which is really nice and different to the norm and has a one button piece on it again keeping things simple.
