With five levels of Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) and five levels of Hear Through, the user can select up to 11 levels of noise filtration – with about 3dB difference between each level.

A dedicated ANC chip drives the noise cancellation for the Jabra Elite 85t, supported by six microphones and wind protection for clear audio and voice call quality in any environment the user may be in.

The new semi-open design for the earbuds offers better comfort while keeping the fit secure.

The Elite 85t provides up to 5.5 hours of battery life with up to 25 hours in compact charging case – with ANC on.

More details below about the Jabra Elite 85t true wireless earbuds, from the press release.

The ANC and HearThrough features make it convenient and comfortable for users to transition between places with different background noise while having the earbuds on.

For example, users can turn the HearThrough on when crossing a busy road to be aware of the dangers. They can also turn the ANC on when they want to focus on their work while at a café.

The Elite 85t true wireless earbuds are specifically designed to provide enhanced comfort through its new oval ear gels and semi-open design.

The oval ear gels and semi-open design improve the seal on the ear when the earbuds are put on and follow the natural shape of the inside of the ear to make the fit comfortable.

These new features let users enjoy their music and calls comfortably for extended periods of time.

Jabra’s advanced ANC technology

The Jabra Elite 85t is powered by a dedicated ANC chip which lets it dedicate more processing power to noise cancellation.

With the chip, the strengths of the noise cancellation and Jabra’s Hearthrough functions, which lets users determine how much environmental sound they can hear while they have the earbuds on, can be adjusted in five levels.

The difference between each level is approximately 3 decibels, which is the minimum sound level change that most users will be able to perceive.

“We are thrilled to introduce the latest addition to our award-winning Elite range of true wireless earbuds – now with Jabra’s most advanced ANC technology. The Elite 85t is a result of our dedication in listening to our customers’ needs for ANC in our earbuds. On top of delivering premium sound and call quality, the Elite 85t lets users determine their ideal ANC experience by letting them control the ANC within five levels,” said Xuanling Lu, Jabra’s Regional Product Marketing Manager for Asia Pacific.

Users can adjust the ANC and Hearthrough levels on the Jabra Sound+ app.

The Elite 85t’s 6-mic technology also helps to provide improved noise cancellation.

The two microphones on the outside, which are called feedforward microphones, detect and cancel noise from outside the ear (e.g. voices, a moving train, rain).

The microphone on the inside, which is called a feedback microphone, detects and cancels noise from inside the ear (e.g. excess noise that has made it past the feedforward microphones).

A more comfortable fit

The shape of the Elite 85t is based on Jabra’s fit simulation model made from thousands of ear scans and the vast database of ears from sister company GN Hearing.

This allowed Jabra to squeeze in a lot of tech in the earbuds while maintaining its compact size and comfortable fit.

The 12mm speakers in the Elite 85t lets it produce a big sound and powerful bass while still providing comfort and relieving ear pressure with its new semi-open design.

Jabra has also adapted the ear gels to an oval shape to provide a better sealing in the ear.

This means that the tower of the Elite 85t does not sit as deeply within the ear, giving users a more comfortable earbud, while maintaining a very secure fit.
