Jabra Elite 85t scores new colours and Alexa

April 7, 2021

Jabra make some pretty good earbuds, I’ve been using the Elite 85t ANC for ages now. Today we learn that four new colours have launched, Gold/Beige, Copper/Black, Black and Grey. Here’s the SPIN direct from Jabra before we get our hands on some!



Impeccable call quality, sound and fit

The flexible working trend is set to continue during 2021, and with that comes a demand for the ability to take calls anywhere. The Jabra Elite 85t earbuds bring outstanding call quality for the user and the person on the other end, thanks to the 6-mic technology (three on each earbud, two on the outside, one on the inside).

The microphones on the inside and outside of the earbuds are used to provide Jabra Advanced ANC, which goes beyond an on/off solution. Users are offered a more personalised experience with the dual slider which goes from full ANC to full HearThrough, and anywhere in between.

The 12mm speakers allow the Jabra Elite 85t to produce a big sound and powerful bass, while still enhancing comfort and relieving ear pressure with its semi-open design. Jabra has also adapted the ear gels to an oval shape providing a better sealing in the ear, while ensuring they stay in place. This means the tower of the Elite 85t does not sit as deeply within the ear, giving users a more comfortable earbud and a good seal. With ANC on, the earbuds boast a battery life of up to 5.5 hours, with up to 25 hours in the compact charging case and are Qi-qualified – for wireless charging.

Calum MacDougall, Senior Vice President at Jabra, said: “We want to provide customers with more choice as we deliver products that are engineered for purpose. So, we are very excited to announce the availability of our advanced ANC Elite 85t earbuds in four new colours. Our customers now have the option to enjoy the sleek design and sound in many more styles.” 

Noice-cancelling for all

Jabra’s ANC capabilities extend beyond the Elite 85t. The award-winning Elite 75t, both Active and non-Active variants, now also comes with ANC as a standard. Existing owners of a product in the Elite 75t family are also able to enjoy ANC via a free upgrade in the Jabra Sound+ app. Jabra is the first company to deliver ANC on an existing true wireless product line, creating one of the broadest true wireless ANC line-ups in the market.

The Elite 85t is engineered to defy the boundaries of how much noise can be removed in a set of true wireless earbuds, with Jabra’s most advanced and powerful ANC technology. The level of noise-cancelling goes further than Jabra’s standard ANC offerings (featured in the 75t range), which does not have a dedicated ANC chip. Users can enjoy the premium ANC to its fullest extent, by adjusting between full ANC to create a private quiet space, and at the other end of the spectrum, to use the HearThrough feature for full transparency, letting in your surroundings, and creating a personalised ANC experience.
