Moments are basically EQ and noise suppression presets that you can enable based on your environment. You can make various settings for your shuttle service, both public and private. There's also a fourth option called "My Moment," which lets you set how you see fit. And instead of remembering what they were, you can save them for easy access to the headphones without having to launch the app to change the mode. The headphones themselves can analyze sounds to see where you are before you switch to the appropriate moment ̵
In the Sound + app, you can quickly change the ANC mode and adjust the EQ sliders or select one of six EQ presets. The software also shows you what all the on-board controls do, allows you to change your voice assistant's settings, helps you find your headphones if you lose them, and much more. The Elite 85h features ear-sensing that detects whether you wear headphones or not. With this option enabled, you can automatically answer calls or resume audio playback simply by activating them. It's convenient, but Jabra gives you the ability to completely turn it off in the app.
Unlike some headphones, the EQ tools are noticeable when they are voiced. The default sound profile is fine, but you can definitely improve it with the EQ sliders and presets. Or at least you can customize it to your taste. After testing all the ready-made options, I found that manual adjustment of the curve was best for me: more bass, a bit more midrange, and a bit more highs. With this change, hip-hop, electronic music and metal had what it takes to do it without overwhelming everything else. I found the sweet spot for things like Com Truise's Persuasion System Denzel Curry's ZUU and Gojira's Magma . All of this is best served loud and bassy.

The Elite 85h is a well-built audio workhorse with an amazing battery life and a capable ANC, but overall the audio quality is not as good as the Sony 1000XM3, and at $ 300, they do not undercut the competition and make value play, which is a flagship except price.

With Punch Brothers & # 39; All Ashore album and everything with upright bass, the low end can boom, if you're not careful, and I had to adjust the EQ so that it did not get too overpowering. The default setting is good for this genre, but the more aggressive styles I mentioned felt rather flat. It's nice to be able to make these changes with the help of an app, but at the same time you should not have to. With really great headphones, the default setting would cover all genres well.
Jabra promises an impressive battery life of 36 hours with the ANC on, six hours more than Sony's 1000XM3 and 16 hours more than the Bose QC35 II. Disable Noise Cancellation, and the company claims that you can expect between recharges up to 41 hours. If you can limit yourself to 7 hours a day (lol), you can listen to them for the entire week (five days) before you need to recharge them. For me it's ridiculous and during my tests I found out how outrageous it was. Starting with a full charge, I used the Elite 85h for about seven to seven hours a day for seven days – with a one-week break. At this time, according to Sound + App still 85 percent left. Of course, you do not often resort to this USB-C cable. And like many headphones today, the Elite 85h has a quick charge feature that lets you use five hours in fifteen minutes after you've completely discharged it.
