Summary: There’s a lot to love about the Jabra Revo Wireless headphones - they look good, they sound good, and they’re easy to operate, you’ll need to think long and hard before setting down two tons for these. If you’re after the convenience of wire-free audio for exercise, you’ll want in-ear jobs that cost less rather than better sound quality. And if you’re an audiophile, you’ll want to skip the Bluetooth entirely.
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?
Excerpt: Hollywood actors can have it rough sometimes, especially when they represent a highly iconic character of a largely successful movie. They can be typecast into a certain persona, or have such a strong presence with a past character that people can’t see them for anything else.
Summary: The Revos are a stylish, excellent-sounding pair of Bluetooth headphones. The fit and finish is quality, as is the construction. The "life tested" design, composed of an aluminum frame, steel hinges and a shatterproof headband is instantly apparent from the second you pick them up and is likely to help provide an extended lifespan versus the typical pair of wireless cans.
Sound quality is great and the on-headphone controls are very usable.

Jabra REVO Wireless Headphones Sound Too Good to be Wireless
5 July 2013
Summary: Jabra teamed with Dolby to create a sound experience that consumers would not only enjoy but also break them out of the just being a professional hands-free headset manufacturer. Not only have they developed a pair of headphones that is true contender in a way too crowded headphone market, but they have also thought outside the box by developing an app that will compliment and enhance your audio experience.
Pros: Solid headphones. Comfortable ear cups and headband. Excellent listening experience – especially vocals and strings. Foldable for travelling. Comes with carrying pouch. Sounds just as good wireless or wired. Works with a wire for times when you’re out of battery. NFC is a nice plus making, them future proof.
Cons: The remote on the audio cable started to break after just a month of use.
Excerpt: The name Jabra should be common to anyone who uses their smartphone as an extension of themselves. They have been making wireless headsets for years and have developed a well-deserved following. Recently, Jabra has jumped into the highly competitive headphone arena with the Vox earphones and Revo (wired and wireless) headphones. This review will cover the wired version of the Revo . The first thing you notice about the Revo headphones is its good looks.
Pros: Comfortable, Warm, easy sound, Ruggedly made, Replaceable cord, Mic and in-line controls
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
Conclusion: Jabra's Revo headphones favor over-the-top bass boosting rather than a balanced sound signature. And they cost a bit more than they should.
Pros: Powerful, clean audio response with extremely boosted bass for low frequency lovers. Inline remote control and microphone for Android and iOS devices. Excellent design and construction with cloth-bound, tangle-resistant, detachable cable.
Cons: Extremely unrealistic sound signature favors bass heavily over high-mids and highs. Overpriced for this level of sound quality. Can be uncomfortable over long listening periods.
