If you're in the market for deals on Bluetooth over-the-ear headphones, Jabra Elite 85h could be just what you're looking for. They're now discounted by $100 — or 40-percent off — for Black Friday at Amazon. And that's for any color configuration. So whether Copper Black, Gold Beige, Navy, or Titanium Black suits your style, there's a pair for you. Or for whoever they're intended to be gifted to.
Now priced at just $149.99, down from $249.99, Jabra Elite 85h aren't the newest headphones around. They launched back at CES 2019. But they are still some of the best around since they launched with some then-bleeding-edge features. And, at this price, they're a real value.
Just for starters, the Jabra Elite 85h featured in Amazon's deals come with some of the smartest noise cancellation available. That's because, thanks to SmartSound, Smart Active Noise cancellation is automatic. The headphones respond to your environment when noise is detected and ANC is turned on. That also adjusts other aspects of the audio based on a personal profile.
With 36 hours of battery life from a single charge — even with ANC on — the battery life is exceptional too. That's without consideration for the fact that 5-hours of listening can be had from 15-minutes of charging. And a comfortable water-resistant build means that listening doesn't have to stop just because of some rain or discomfort.
Conversely, the included aux cable means wired listening can pick up where wired leaves off. If you ever forget to charge the headphones before use.
Touch controls, including access to Google Assistant, Siri, or Amazon Alexa round out the smart features. But, in terms of pure audio, this is still a headset worth considering. And that's not just because this wearable delivers great wired or Bluetooth sound that's controllable via an app. Jabra packed Elite 85h with no fewer than eight mics for improved call quality.
