Jabra's latest headphones automatically adjust to your surroundings


At CES 2018, Jabra debuted its Elite 65t true wireless earbuds, an audio device that would eventually become one of our favorite headphones of the year. For CES this time around, the company has a more traditional new product: a set of over-ear noise-cancelling headphones. With the Elite 85h, Jabra offers an option that will help block out the world around you and provide hands-free access to your virtual assistant of choice for $299.

Active noise cancellation (ANC) is great, but a lot of flagship headphones these days have some type of adaptive sound to adjust the feature to whatever environment you're in. Jabra has done just that. With SmartSound, a tool that harnesses audEERING's context intelligence technology, the Elite 85h analyzes the noise around you and automatically adjusts the audio between one of three modes: Commute, In Public or In Private. In other words, if you move from a noisy sidewalk into a much quieter Lyft for your commute, these headphones will make the change to ensure good sound quality. Jabra's Sound+ app offers further control over the audio, including the ability to save custom settings for future use.
