As I said the Jabra 85H really did not fit my head well. I guess they're good if your head is shaped like an inverted pyramid . I was unable to get a good seal due to the lack of flexibility in the earphones. Sound wise they did not even come close to the Bose QuietComfort 35 II for sound. That would make sense given the less than ideal seal provided by the earphones. I confess I was disappointed. After all the hype I expected much more.

It's nice and comfortable pair of headphones, it's more comfortable for me that xm4( xm4 when i squeeze from outside they can pop up my drums because it has closed construction) this Jabra is nice to sleep with because it has half open structure , it has because of that not as good as xm4 isolation but its different only when you don't listening anything , when you will play song , there isn't a difference

Pros

  • Good looking ,they have material like in clothes on outside
  • Good sound quality
  • Nice anc

Cons

  • Microphone don't work in windows flawlessly
  • This outside material get dirty and need washing
