Fit not good, sound not equal to the Bose 35 II.

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.
