Jabra Intros Elite 85t Earbuds, Adds ANC to Elite 75t with Update
Jabra today announced the new Elite 85t true wireless earbuds, a successor to the well-reviewed Elite 75t series. In a first, Jabra also announced a major firmware update for existing Elite 75t earbuds that adds Active Noise Cancellation (ANC). The new Elite 85t upgrades the speakers and mics, moving from 6mm speakers (in the 75t) to 12mm, and from four microphones to six, for improved wind noise protection and call clarity. While the 75t is gaining basic ANC via firmware, the 85t features Jabra Advanced ANC, using a dedicated ANC chip. The ANC and HearThrough features (piping in ambient sound) are fully adjustable. Similar to the updated 75t, the 85t features 5.5 hours of battery life with ANC on, and 25 hours total with the charging case. Also like the 75t, the 85t's charging case can be charged using standard Qi wireless charging. While the 75t was rated IP55 (water-resistant) against dust and water, the 85t is rated IPX4 (protected against splashes). Jabra Elite 85t will be available for pre-order in October, and for sale in November, for $229. Titanium/Black is the only color available at launch. In January, they will also be available in Gold/Beige, Copper/Black, Black, and Grey.
