One of the last pairs of true wireless to cross my review desk this year is the latest on offer from Jabra and we have covered by far the biggest range of true wireless earbuds in Ireland again this year and my Top 5 has changed several times but there is always one of Jabras earbuds in there with their consistent high quality earbuds and I cant see that changing anytime soon.

The latest on offer from the company yet again do not disappoint and offer all the features expected alongside their Jabra Sound Plus app which is one of the best apps out their today. Offering one of the best ANC experiences in TWS you can also pair with two devices at once here so for those who work from home or whatever the case is you can seamlessly switch between your laptop and phone.

There is some things missing from the 85t over the 75t but it is still easy to recommend either pair of these, the 85t drop in IP rating, bass is slightly less but their app does make up for it with the EQ settings and you cant use both earbuds independently something which is common it is the same again here with the 85t and the right bud is the one you cant use but this is not a huge deal for me. The Elite 85t are slightly bigger than the 75 and you will see in the unboxing video the differences.

The buds themselves are a comfy snug fit and have the familiar circular buttons which you touch to control all aspects of music and again they work a treat all the time every time and also when you do touch the earbuds you will feel no pressure on the ears doing so, So what do they sound like…Well again they are one of the best out there still and it is a hard call to make between these and the 75t but if you want to save money get the 75t you will be be still onto a winner, My usual testing provided me with what I expect from Jabra with great sound, direction speech, instrument’s and more. No matter what you listen to be it You Tube Spotify or Netflix you will be pleased and with the ability to change the EQ settings you are in control of the earbuds and not stuck with a default tone that not everyone will like you cant really lose here. There is no lag latency noticed either on any situation tested in and no drops in connection during my test period, check the video below for more…
