Jabra Elite 85t Review

Choosing the correct BT earbuds for Android phone users can be complicated, unlike iPhone users who can quickly determine if they want Apple-branded earphones. But Jabra still has something that has premium features, such as the Jabra Elite 85T.

Design and build

You can be sure that you are getting a premium accessory for your phone if you decide to choose the Elite 85t edition. The design and construction have the distinction of a well-thought-out earbud. The material is premium and you can be assured that it will last a long time.

The components used are not cheap and there is attention to detail that will result in satisfaction for end-users.

I’d like to add that consistent with its previous model, the Elite 85t uses USB Type-C for fast charging, plus this model also supports Qi wireless charging.

Compared to the Elite 75t which we featured in our YouTube channel last year, this one has a slimmer case.

Moreover, the new earbuds have a lighter and more balanced fit compared to the Elite 75t. The oval-shaped ear tips and the redesigned silicone ear tips do not reach too far into your ear canal but rest comfortably when inserted.


Aside from the high-quality audio, it provides the users, the Elite 85t becomes the very most-sought-after earbuds because it can connect to two (2) different devices simultaneously. A case in point is, I can connect it with my realme 7 Pro and on my Macbook Pro 2012 at the same time. Playback, of course, is one at a time.

How to pair Jabra Elite 85t

To pair it to your phone or any Bluetooth device, take it off from the charging case, press and hold left and right buttons for three (3) seconds until you hear the audio notification that it is ready to connect.  Finally, connect your Bluetooth device and enjoy.

What’s even cooler is that each button on the earbud supports single, double, or triple presses for playback, noise-canceling, or to summon your phone’s voice assistant. … “Hey Google...  ”

Single press

Enables and/or disables ANC and hear through features. ANC means Active Noise Cancelling.

I’d buy this earbud because of these winning features I have personally experienced.

  • Really good noise-canceling feature
  • Multi-point BT connectivity
  • Earbuds control are on point
  • Comfortable to wear

On the cons side, I was hoping for more base but I did not get it. The local pricing can also be challenging as there are other alternatives that can compete.
