Price Point

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

These headphones sound great and are very affordable, but just know what you are getting. If you're looking for some great sounding headphones to listen to around your house using a headphone amp, these would be a great buy. But if you're looking for something to take to the gym, or use at work you'll probably want to look elsewhere. Pros - Excellent sound quality

Jabra Elite 85t

(1/1)

At this time - for me - I found the 85t's checked off all the right boxes - AND the price is excellent for what you get (Mine were $179)

Sound Quality

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/3)

My wife disagrees, but I think movies sound punchier and more intimate on grado cans. And they have the side benefit of letting two people listen to something and just talk like nothing since they leak like mad. But again, all round? These babies, hands down.

Jabra Elite 85t

(1/4)

There's an equalizer you can play around with in Jabra's Sound Plus app for iOS and Android that allows you to tweak the sound profile. I mainly stuck with the default neutral setting because I didn't think the sound was improved by changing to any of the preset EQ offerings or creating a custom setting on my own. But maybe you'll have a different opinion.

Comfort

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/2)

All-day comfortable with ease (they can get a tiny bit warm with the alcantara pads in a hot room, but not even close to unacceptable) and utterly zero squeaks or creaks (looking at you, Audio Technica AD700's) The one, ONLY gripe I have with them is the nice cable they have is too short for anything other than a desktop amp or device RIGHT in front of you. BUT, it's replaceable, and lots of companies make cables for them. Side benefit is you can get a balanced cable for them, and if you get a BTR5 as well, that amp has a balanced output option. So they can sound EVEN BETTER

Jabra Elite 85t

(1/1)

Hello u/Affectionate_Ad3164, Once you have found an eargel for your Jabra Elite 85t earbud that fits snuggly without being too tight, you will need to make sure you have the right adjustment with the earbud. We recommend angling the microphones on your earbuds downward when putting your earbuds in your ears. When your earbuds are in your ears, twist them counterclockwise, so the microphones are flush against your tragus. Keep in mind you may need to mix and match the size of your eargels per earbud

Fit

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

It's not long enough for comfortable PC/ living room AV receiver use for me, so I ordered a replacement cable when I bought the headphone. The replacement cable is that red one that everybody else is buying. I clipped the "braided" part off, and now they're really cool looking red cables. They click really nicely into the headphones - better click than the stock cable

Jabra Elite 85t

(1/5)

Over time, as their price comes down a bit, the Elite 85t's appeal will grow. They're a very good set of true-wireless earbuds. However, they don't have quite enough wow factor to make me tell you to go run out and buy them without hesitation over other competitors in this price class. But keep them on your radar

Warranty

Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX

(1/1)

Customer service is not amazing. Warranty is nothing special. Oh, and the stock cable is a cable. It's not great

Jabra Elite 85t

(1/1)

I have reached out to the customer service and initially they were quite helpful, but at the end it seems to be something inside of the Jabra right earbud stopped down. They suggested to complete Warranty request, which I did 2 weeks ago, and did another one 1 week ago. I have not received any reply from the warranty team since. It has been total of 3 weeks since my Jabra headphones stopped working

Durability

Jabra Elite 85t

(1/1)

Hello u/JoinMyFamily, At this time, we do not recommend using your phone to charge your Jabra Elite 85t if that is how you charge your device. You can charge the Jabra Elite 85t using a wall adapter with a voltage of 5v +- 0.25v and the cable we provide or a wireless charging pad with the following requirements: 5V +0.25/-0
