The Jabra Elite 85t Truly Wireless are semi-open headphones with a comfortable, stable in-ear fit. Their default sound profile is slightly bass-heavy, with a touch of extra thump and warmth, though you can use the Jabra Sound+ app to customize their sound to your liking. They're also equipped with active noise cancelling (ANC) and can block out higher-frequency noises typically found in an office. However, they struggle to isolate against bass-heavy sounds like bus and plane engines. While their 6.5-hour continuous battery life may not last through your workday, their portable charging case offers about 3.5 extra charges if you need it.

Our Verdict

7.5 Neutral Sound

The Jabra Elite 85t are good for neutral sound. They have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile that delivers a touch of extra thump and warmth. However, their treble range is veiled, so vocals and lead instruments lack detail. Luckily, you can customize their sound profile using the graphic EQ and presets in the Jabra Sound+ app. Also, provided you get a tight seal, they should deliver audio consistently across different users.

Pros
  • Graphic EQ and presets.
  • Very consistent audio delivery.
Cons
  • Terrible passive soundstage.
7.8 Commute/Travel

The Jabra Elite 85t are good for commute and travel. These comfortable headphones are easy to bring with you on the go. While their ANC feature can block out higher-frequency noises like chatter from other passengers, they struggle to block out bass-heavy sounds like bus and plane engines. Also, their 6.5-hour continuous battery life may not last through long days out of the house.

Pros
  • Well-built, portable design.
  • Stable fit.
  • Very consistent audio delivery.
Cons
  • 6.5-hour continuous battery life.
  • ANC struggles to block out bass-range noise.
8.3 Sports/Fitness

The Jabra Elite 85t are impressive for sports and fitness. These well-built, comfortable in-ears have a portable, lightweight design. They're stable enough to stay in your ears during your workouts. However, they don't have stability fins, so they may not stay put during more intense exercises.

Pros
  • Well-built, portable design.
  • Stable fit.
Cons
  • No stability fins.
7.5 Office

The Jabra Elite 85t are good for office use. These comfortable headphones don't leak much noise, so you can listen to your music at loud volumes without bothering your coworkers nearby. Their ANC feature can block out typical office noises, like ambient chatter. However, their 6.5-hour continuous battery life may not last through your workday without pausing to recharge them.

Pros
  • ANC can cut down ambient chatter.
  • Well-built, portable design.
  • Very consistent audio delivery.
Cons
  • 6.5-hour continuous battery life.
5.9 Wireless Gaming

The Jabra Elite 85t aren't compatible with PS4 or Xbox One, and their latency with Bluetooth-enabled PCs is likely too high to be suitable for gaming.

5.8 Wired Gaming

You can't use the Jabra 85t with a wired connection, so they aren't suitable for wired gaming.

6.6 Phone Calls

The Jabra Elite 85t are fair for phone calls. Their integrated microphone has an okay recording quality, so your voice is understandable but thin and muffled to those on the other end of the line. The mic also struggles to separate your voice from background noise, so they're best-suited for making calls in quiet environments. These in-ears can block out some background noises so you can focus on your call. At the same time, their semi-open design can also help you hear your voice during calls.

Pros
  • ANC can cut down ambient chatter.
Cons
  • Okay microphone recording quality.
  • 7.5 Neutral Sound
  • 7.8 Commute/Travel
  • 8.3 Sports/Fitness
  • 7.5 Office

Test Results

Style

The Jabra Elite 85t have a similar design to the Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless. These in-ears have a sleek, low-profile design, but they're a bit bulkier. As a result, they protrude a bit from your ears. They come in several colors: 'Titanium Black', 'Grey', 'Gold Beige', 'Copper Black', and 'Black'.

These in-ears have a comfortable fit. The ear tips are more oval-shaped than the circular tips on the Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless and Jabra Elite 3 True Wireless, and they don't put too much pressure on your ears. However, they're a bit bulky, and they stick out a bit from your ears, which some listeners may not like.

The Jabra Elite 85t have great controls. Each bud has a physical button that's very clicky and responsive. They also give audible feedback when you register commands and there's even have an audible guide to walk you through their pairing mode. On the downside, the controls aren't very intuitive. Only the right earbud has controls when using them in mono mode too.

On either bud:

  • One press: Answers a call. If you're currently on a call, this command mutes and unmutes your microphone.
  • Double-press: Ends or rejects a call.
  • Triple-press: Skips the track backward or restarts the track.

On the left earbud:

  • One press: Allows you to cycle between HearThrough mode, which allows you to hear ambient sound around you while you're wearing them, ANC on, and off when you're not in a call.
  • Double-press: Skips the track forward.
  • Triple-press: Skips the track backward or restarts the track.
  • Press and hold: Lowers the volume.

On the right earbud:

  • One press: Plays and pauses audio.
  • Double-press: Activates voice assistant when you're not in a call.
  • Press and hold: Raises the volume.

On both buds:

  • One press: When you press both buds at the same time, you can turn the headphones on and off.

Breathability

The Jabra Elite 85t have outstanding breathability. Since they don't cover your outer ear, they shouldn't trap in a lot of heat and allow some airflow. You also shouldn't sweat more than normal, even if you're wearing them during moderate physical activity.

The Jabra Elite 85t are outstandingly portable. Like most truly wireless in-ears, they're small and lightweight. They easily fit in your pocket, and there's also a portable charging case to help protect them when you're on the go.

Build Quality

The Jabra 85t have an impressive build quality. They're mostly plastic but feel very solid and durable. The ear tips don't seem like they could rip easily. They're also rated IPX4 for water resistance, though we don't test for this.

7.5
Design
Stability

The Jabra Elite 85t have a stable in-ear fit. They should stay in your ears while you run or lift weights. However, they aren't as stable as in-ears with stability fins like the Jaybird Vista Truly Wireless or Jaybird Vista 2 Truly Wireless.

The Jabra Elite 85t have a slightly bass-heavy sound profile. They deliver a touch of extra thump and rumble to your mixes, which some users may prefer. However, the recessed treble can make audio a bit dull or dark. Luckily, their companion app offers a graphic EQ and presets so that you can adjust their sound to your liking.

The Jabra Elite 85t have superb bass accuracy. The entire range is quite flat, so audio is full-bodied, punchy, and thumpy. The slight overemphasis in the low and mid-bass can add a little extra thump, rumble, and body to your mixes.

The Jabra 85t have impressive peaks and dips performance. The very slight dip in the mid-mids nudges vocals and lead instruments somewhat towards the back of the mix, while the peak in the high-mids can make those same instruments a bit honky and harsh. The uneven mid-treble makes sibilants alternately piercing and dull.

These headphones have fantastic imaging. Their weighted group delay falls almost entirely below the audibility threshold, resulting in a mostly tight bass and transparent treble. The L/R drivers of our unit are well-matched in frequency, phase, and amplitude response, so objects like footsteps and voices are accurately placed and localized within the stereo image. However, these results are only valid for our unit, meaning that yours may perform differently.

The Jabra 85t have a bad passive soundstage, which is to be expected from in-ear headphones. By design, they bypass the outer ear, which needs to be activated to create a speaker-like soundstage. As a result, sound seems like it's coming from inside your head. On the upside, their semi-open design helps them create a more spacious soundstage than closed-back in-ears like the Jabra Elite Active 75t Truly Wireless.

The Jabra 85t have a decent weighted harmonic distortion performance. At normal listening volumes, there are some small peaks in the treble range, and at high volumes, there's also a small peak in the mid-mids. The rest of the frequencies fall within good limits, resulting in mostly clean and pure audio reproduction.

The Jabra 85t have decent noise isolation. They have active noise cancelling (ANC), but they still struggle to block out bass-heavy background noises like bus and plane engines. This may be intentional, as their semi-open design is supposed to help you stay aware of your surroundings while running outdoors or during your commute. They perform better with higher-frequency noises, so they can block out the sound of people chatting nearby and the hum of AC units. For headphones with better noise isolation, check out the JBL CLUB PRO+ TWS True Wireless.

The Jabra 85t have a fair battery performance. They're advertised to last roughly 5.5 hours with ANC on, but we measured over an hour more. While they may not last through your workday without pausing to recharge them, their carrying case holds roughly 3.5 additional charges if you need it. They also have an auto-off timer that helps conserve battery life after 15 minutes without a connection. If you're connected to a device, these in-ears go into standby mode after 30 minutes of inactivity. You can also adjust the timer in the companion app. However, battery life can vary depending on usage, so your real-life experience may vary.
