Jabra Revo Wireless Review1
Pairing it up to an iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III, we’ll say that the Jabra Revo Wireless delivers a well-balanced quality when it comes to listening to music – attributed mostly to its 40mm dynamic speaker drivers. However, things are further enhanced by downloading and using Jabra’s exclusive Sound app, which interestingly enough, brings forth Dolby Digital Plus sound to the mix. For music loving junkies. We surely appreciate the level of control offered by the app, as there are various equalizer settings to choose from.
Even better, manual controls give us a meticulous amount of flexibility in properly fine tuning the quality, which isn’t something we tend to find with many apps or headphones. In terms of output, we love the punchy tones we’re given with mids and highs – though, at the highest volume, they can be drowned out. And of course, we can’t forget to mention about the bass, which is subtle with its tone, but never overpowering. Attempting to be the one-stop hub for all your music listening needs, the Jabra Sound App also incorporates social networking functionality with Facebook and Twitter – so you can let the entire world know what you’re listening to.
Phone conversations are readily made on the Jabra Revo Wireless without much negative disturbances with its quality. Seeing that it has an ample amount of volume, voices through the headphones are clearly audible. On the flip side though, our callers complain 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’s doesn’t pose much of an issue when we’re using it in quiet environments.
Rated for 12 hours of music, we managed to get close to that tally with 11.5 hours of music listening out of a full charge. Certainly we would’ve liked to hit that 12 hour mark, but seriously, 11.5 hours of straight usage is pretty darn good in our books. However, just know that it takes approximately 2 hours for it to get charged back to 100-percent. Also, the manufacturer has it rated for 10 days of standby.
Through it all, the Jabra Revo Wireless has shown us that it’s serious about fending off the competition, seeing that it’s packing countless features that remarkably shows off its versatility. Not only that, the audio quality that it delivers is equally astounding as well, dishing up some pleasant tones that never seem to be distorted or unclear. Sure, the quality might not be as crisp as some high-end wired headphones, but when it’s packing NFC for easy setup, an option for a wired connection, touch sensitive controls, and an app that enhances its quality even more, there’s no arguing about its depth. Perhaps, the $250 cost of the Jabra Revo Wireless will cause a momentary concern for some people, but quite frankly, it’s a cost we wouldn’t hesitate to dish out.
