Great once adjustments made. Work amazing well so far, i did feel the need to adjust equalizer settings on my phones music player to get the headphones sounding as they should, but once setup correctly, sound is amazing.
6 months after purchase, having problems with the power. 6 months after purchase, having problems with the power switch. Have contacted jabra, they’ve not been very helpful thus far. Edit: jabra eventually replaced the unit, and i’ve been using it since, so that’s roughly 3 years going now. Not too shabby, battery life is still excellent. I now own a jabra headset that i use at work for taking calls, also excellent.
Another let down by the bluetooth. I have been on a search for the ideal quality audio-cum-bluetooth headphones. For a moment i thought these fit the bill, but:plusses- truly outstanding build quality, definitely the best of all i tried- great design, set off by orange accents- reasonably comfortable (see below though)- great bassy sound (once you hook into the jabra app)- provided cables are real class, braided orange, non-tangleminuses- after 20 mins they become uncomfortable owing to the heft and lack of swivel movement around vertical axis (which then puts pressure on your ears)- earcups are faux leather not real leather, so sweat gets going from an early stage- without the jabra app providing dolby their sound is comparative to a £50 pair of cheapies; with the app the sound is a revelation. So why not build that into the cans?- add to that, samsung downloaded a sw update for the note iii (my phone), and since then the jabra app crashes after one song every time without fail rendering the app pretty much useless (until jabra updates it i guess)- the carry bag is barely passable for a £180 pair of cans- biggest let-down is the quality of phone calling via bluetooth. Honestly, i’m getting pretty fed up with callers saying ‘what was that again?’. Given jabra’s history of bluetooth devices to corporations, you’d think they had this sorted if nothing else, but no. Well, in the final analysis they are a quality pair of cans with great sound and i really wanted to keep them, but owing to travel i do 2-4h stints on a regular basis and make calls – being uncomfortable and no one hearing me properly they had with great reluctance have to go back to amzn (and btw, as ever top service from amzn). Here are the specifications for the Jabra Revo Corded On-Ear Headphones:
- Enter your model number
to make sure this fits.
- Dolby Digital Plus sound
- Single, in-line control for calls and music
- Lightweight – only 16 grams
- Foldable design
- Connects to all devices with a 3.5mm connector
Sound is good for the price tag. Bass is punchy and powerful if you play a song that has some, but classical and opera music sound really well too. Fit and comfort is excellent, altough if i tilt my head towards the front, the headphones slip off my head. I think this is due both to the slim size of my head and to the asimmetrical design of the earcups that makes for added comfort (following the profile of the head in the ear region), in fact if i tilt my head backwards it stays in place. Battery life is good, i put it to charge when i’m back home at the end of the day for a couple of hours and never ran out of battery during the day (truly 10 hours of listening over bluetooth). It’s nice too that you can use it with the pc wired with the usb chord, so it charges while you listen over usb. Also nice it connects to multiple devices at once e. I’m watching a movie on the computer, my phone rings and i can pick it up from the headphones. Nice and useful vocal guidance for pairing and numbers of devices connected. Cool design, not bulky on the head, very stylish in my opinion yet sober, it goes well along with either a jumper or a blazer. I would recommend it to anyone wishing for a nice sounding, durable headphone for outdoor and everyday commuting.
Best headphones i’ve ever bought – great looking, even better sound and an excellent feature set. . I bought these headphones for my daughter’s christmas present, as she wanted some nice headphones, and i knew a friend of hers had just recently got a pair of beats, and so i wanted to get her some decent ones. Having considered many different options in the sub-£200 price range, i settled on the jabra revo headphones as offering the best balance of features at the price. I paid £164, and these are now going on amazon for £104, so although that was nearly three years ago, in my view at that price they probably still hold as the best bang for buck you can get. The headphones come in a very attractive box, which offers a lot of protection for the ‘phones should you choose to use that as a place to store them between use. The headphones themselves are very stylish also, and not too big and clunky looking. Jabra are a well-renowned brand for headset technology, but i’d only really come across them in a work setting in call centres, and hadn’t really thought of them as a serious option for a premium set of headphones before ordering these. But now i have new found respect for the brand. The feature set on the headphones is very impressive, and given their presence in telecommunications kit, i wasn’t surprised to find the headphones feature a microphone and can be used to make phone calls – which they do very competently indeed, with great clarity of sound. The addition of dolby digital is also amazing, and although this is a matter of taste, it’s a great feature to have, and one the jabra has that many of its rivals don’t.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Fun, innovative, sounds good.
- Good allrounder. Great Bass and handsfree phone
- 6 months after purchase, having problems with the power
Fun, innovative, sounds good. . Someone had a great time designing this pair of headphones. The controls are novel, clever, and work well. The bluetooth is fast to connect. My only complaint is that the signal is a bit feeble. It drops out when i turn my head sometimes, even when my phone is in my chest pocket.
Brilliant sound, decent charge, but the headband snapped today from a slight bit of stress.
