Conclusion: Jabra’s Revo Wireless headphones are simply the best I’ve yet to use. For US$250, you’re getting a slice of the future. I get no wires, distortion free sound that is rich, deep and crisp all at once and level of comfort that I haven’t found in other devices. Yes, the price is an issue but some headphones retail for over US$1 000 and most likely only sound half as good as these. Compact, stylish, lustful, future-proof headphones. What more do you need to hear?
Conclusion: Although I’ve been using the REVO Wireless for just over a week i didn't feel the need for further testing nor to leave it playing for many hours prior to testing it in order to burn-in the drivers until their optimum level of quality. Regardless of what you throw at it (pop, rock, heavy metal, jazz) right from the box the REVO Wireless sounds great with plenty of Bass, accurate mids/highs and a more than just a satisfactory volume level, for a wireless headset that is.
Pros: - Build Quality (Bend Tested 10.000 times/fold tested 3.5000 times/drop tested from 2m), - Design, - Size, - Clear & Accurate Mids/Highs, - Rich Bass, - Plenty Of Volume, - Wired & Wireless Use (3.5mm & USB), - NFC (Near Field Connection), - Dual Noise-Blackout Microphones, - Touch Controls, - Foldable Design, - Battery Life (Up To 12 Hours), - Sound App
