Jabra Revo Wireless
We spotted them first at CES; the new Jabra Revo wireless headphones and have been eagerly anticipating trying them out. We weren't disappointed.
Here's the good, the bad and the ugly.
* Connectivity is surprisingly good. They connect over Bluetooth 3.0 and streamed seamlessly while we wandered around the office, only losing us when we moved outside. To connect, simply tap your compatible smartphone on the left ear cup for Bluetooth pairing.
* Sound: Again, surprisingly good for wireless. For an enhanced music experience, it makes available a Jabra Sound App that gives you the full Dolby Digital Plus sound. Use the App to create and browse through playlists, share music and adjust the graphic equalizer so you can play your tracks as you want to hear them.
* Ease of Use: The "Turntable Touch Control" allows you to easily play, skip or pause your music and manage calls. Calls came in loud and clear. Tap to pair with NFC.
* Comfort: We found these cans very comfortable for long-listening sessions.
* Travel: Revo Wireless headphones weigh in at 8.47 ounces. And you can fold and go
* Only one negative; that at $250 they're pricey.
