Basically, moments are EQ and noise setting presets that you can activate based on your environment. You can have different settings for your commuting, both public and private. There is also a fourth option called "My Moment" that you can adjust how you fit. And instead of remembering what they were, you can save them for easy access to the headphones themselves, without having to postpone the app to change modes. The headphones themselves can analyze sound to try to detect which place you are before switching to the appropriate torque ̵
Inside the Sound + app, you can quickly change the ANC mode and adjust the EQ slider or select one of six EQ presets. The software also shows you what all controls do on board, allows you to change your voice assistant, you can find the headphones if you lose them and more. Elite 85h offers ear recognition, a feature that detects if you wear your headphones. When you are active, you can automatically answer calls or continue the sound simply by turning them on. It's handy, but Jabra gives you the choice to turn it off completely inside the app.
Unlike some headphones, the EQ tools make a noticeable difference in the setting. The standard sound profile is good, but you can definitely improve it with EQ controls and presets. Or at least you can fine-tune it to suit your taste. After testing all the finished options, I found that manually adjusting the curve was best for me: more bass, a little more center and a touch more treble. With that change, hip-hop, electronic music and metal had the drum that it needed without bridging everything else. I found the cute place for things like Com Truise's Persuasion System Denzel Currys ZUU and Gojira's Magma . Jabra Elite 85h "data caption =" Jabra impressed us last year with a mix of quality and value on Elite 65t. Elite 85h is a well-built audio horse with amazing battery life and competent ANC, but the overall sound quality is not as good as Sony 1000XM3. And at $ 300, they do not undermine the competition and make a value game.

With Punch Brothers All Ashore albums and everything with an upright base, the low end can be boomy if you are not careful, and I had to adjust the EQ so it wasn't too overwhelming. The default setting is good for this genre, but the more aggressive styles I mentioned tended to feel flat. It's nice that you can make these changes using an app, but at the same time you shouldn't need it. For really good headphones, the default setting would handle all genres well.
Jabra promises a full 36 hour battery life with ANC on, six hours more than Sony's 1000XM3 and 16 hours more than Bose QC35 II. Turn off the audio shutdown and the company says you can count on up to 41 hours between charges. Basically, if you can limit yourself to 7 hours a day (lol), you can listen to them all week (five days) before you need to load them. For me it is ridiculous, and during my tests I found out how scandalous it was. From a full charge I used Elite 85h for about 2-3 hours a day for seven days – with a weekend-long break thrown. At that time, I still had 85 percent left, according to the Sound + app. Of course, you will not reach for the USB-C cable frequently. And like many headphones nowadays, Elite 85h has a fast charging feature that gives you five hours of use in 15 minutes if you run them completely.
