If you are in the market for a set of wireless earphones, you need to carefully evaluate your options so as to make the best choice. You may have heard of the Jabra Elite 85H which is a fairly decent choice. There are, however, more options these days and one of those is the Vodo Earbuds. Here is how this new entrant to the wireless earphone market compares with the Jabra Elite 85H Headphones.
The Jabra Elite 85H wireless headphones are over-the-ear headphones meaning that some people may find them a little too bulky for everyday use. They fit fairly comfortably and are a little lighter than they appear. The earpad area is lined with imitation leather which makes the wireless headphone look slightly cheap. Vodo Earbuds, on the other hand, fit comfortably into the ear and are so light that you hardly notice they are there. Vodo Earbuds come with a charging case that is beautifully shaped and also very light. The entire set looks stylish and unobtrusive.
A lot of work has gone to making Vodo Earbuds as comfortable as possible. These versatile wireless earphones are designed to fit snugly into the ear ensuring that you can jog, walk or run with very little danger of the earbuds falling off. Their extreme lightweight and ergonomic design ensure that you barely notice their presence. The over-the-ear design of the Elite 85H is good for some sedentary functions but the large headphones might get a little tiresome if you are working out or cycling.
The Elite 85H has most of its controls on the outer side of the right ear cusp. While this is easy to reach, it might pose a problem if you are left-handed or if your right hand is holding something. The Vodo Earbuds have controls on both the right and left bud. This way, you can operate them with any hand that is free. The Elite 85H has some smart features such as pausing when the earphones are removed but it doesn’t quite measure up to the Vodo Earbuds.
Vodo's wireless earphones deliver near-flawless sound quality thanks to their high-fidelity sound technology. Vodo Earbuds also minimize ambient noise. The Elite 85H also delivers pretty decent sound and has a feature that adjusts the noise cancellation mode based on where you are. For example, if you are on a train, or the streets, the headphone can either automatically increase or reduce the noise cancellation. While this is pretty clever, the downside is that the headphone sometimes gets the setting wrong and you have to keep readjusting the noise cancellation options.
Vodo Earbuds come with an impressive six-hour playtime on a single charge which is typically sufficient for a whole day of use. This is because Vodo Earbuds are designed to use very low power. The Elite 85H also does about the same time per charge so it's a tie in this category.
Vodo Earbuds are competitively-priced despite the numerous premium features that these lovely wireless earphones come with. Vodo Earbuds are priced at $129 which is a steal for such high-quality products. The Jabra Elite 85H, with far less capabilities than the Vodo Earbuds, will set you back a whopping $300.
While some people might enjoy the over-the-ear design of the Jabra Elite 85H headphones, the general consensus is that the Vodo Earbuds work better for everyday use. Light, stylish, unobtrusive and powerful, Vodo's wireless earphones are clearly superior when compared to the Jabra Elite 85H wireless headphones.
