Our callers complain [during phone calls] that its noise cancellation feature, which is enabled through its Noise Blackout technology via its dual-microphones, produces some noticeable distortion with voices when it kicks it after a few seconds. However, it doesn’t pose much of an issue when we’re using it in quiet environments.

The wireless version of Revo uses a combination of physical and capacitive controls...Although they’re cool in concept, it can be difficult to actually use these controls as there aren’t very obvious physical differentiators indicating where to press or spin.

The sound is undeniably loud and bassy, but it's not overbearing. On bass-heavy house music, the headphones deliver a punchy sound but doesn't distort the quality of the sound. Likewise, the clarity quality particularly with the Dolby Digital Plus makes them great on all kinds of music.

The Revo’s battery is no chump either. Its box boasts a life of 12 hours music...We haven’t used the headphones for 12 hours straight, but we were impressed that the battery lasted for a tube ride in the morning, several hours of listening during the day, and a tube ride in the evening.

...the Jabra Revo wireless headphones are very comfortable, and don’t squeeze the head much at all. A lot of head movement will dismount them, but regular walking shouldn’t see any problems, and when you need to pull them down, they’ll happily hang around the neck without fear of choking you.

By far the most impressive feature about these headphones is the Dolby Digital Plus enhanced sound (activated via the supplied Jabra Sound App). The Dolby Digital Plus enhanced sound offers a rich depth to the music which, unfortunately, comes with the price tag.

We spent a lot of time cycling between equalizers trying to find the right one for an individual track. For example, Axl Rose's vocals on "Welcome to the Jungle" sounded rather tinny on the Rock setting...It was difficult to find an equalizer that could work with a number of different music genres.

The design of the Revo Wireless is arguably its biggest strength. When it comes to on-ear headphones, I'm usually very picky...but I had no problem with these. They have memory foam in their earpads, and they conform to your ears nicely and seal out a good amount of ambient sound.

Dynamically they feel restricted, and reduce the various elements of a track to something too safe and unexciting. Tracks such as Prince’s 1999 should sound lively and full of beans, but this classic 80s synth-pop classic never really gets out of first gear.

The vinyl pads are comfortable and do a good job of cutting out environmental noise - certainly loud Reg office chatter, London Underground trains and the living room telly, I found. The cups aren’t large, but they pump out a voluminous sound.

The Jabra Revo Wireless are lightweight and so comfortable that I can almost forget I’m even wearing them. The ear cushions are filled with a pillowy memory-foam that’s neither too soft nor hard. I’ve worn these for more than 4 hours straight at a time without ever feeling pain or the need to take them off.

The Jabra REVO Wireless offers the best of both worlds. Not only does it let you go completely wireless via Bluetooth or NFC, but when the battery charge dries up...the sound won’t go out thanks to the included audio cable that will keep the party for one going.

Decent for the price.
I wanted a decent quality pair of Bluetooth headphones. Just know when buying Bluetooth the audio quality will suffer a little. I didn't mind as I wasn't looking for top fidelity. Overall I like them. My only complaint is the earbuds can hurt your head when warn for a long period of time.
