I recently invested in my first pair of over-the-ear headphones, after much research and testing, I decided on the Jabra Revo Wireless.
I had very specific requirements which helped to narrow down my choices, and the Jabra Revo Wireless succeeded on.
- Bluetooth capable, and must support multipoint connectivity (simultaneous connection to 2 devices at the same time over bluetooth)
- Must have a decent voice call quality, especially for the mic. Really hate to constantly repeat myself because of poor noise isolation.
- Comfortable over the ears cups
- Good music quality
- Leverages the IOS headset battery meter; so I can see how much power is left in the headset
- Integrates well with IOS and Android
Some nice to have features, which I really like, and the Jabra Revo Wireless supports very well
- backup wired connection via 3.5mm – this allows me to keep using the headphones even after the battery has gone completely flat; and also enables me to use the headphone with inflight entertainment systems
- charge via USB – this is particularly important especially for travellers; the icing on the cake here is that the Jabra Revo Wireless will act as an USB audio device. Works on both Mac and Windows; the Jabra Revo Wireless will show up in the Audio device list for both input and output!! How cools is that!?!
Call performance is very good, among the best of bluetooth devices I have used.
Multipoint works very well, though I must add that when there are 2 devices connected, there will be some lag in the audio. So, if you are watching a video, or playing a game, the sound will be about half a second late. I’ve validated that this only occurs when multipoint is in action.
Overall, this is a great headset and I am very pleased of my investment.
