First Look: Jabra Revo headphones: Superior design meets strong sound

2:01 /

One of the better on-ear headphones, the Jabra Revo may not be a bargain, but it's a good choice for mobile users.

-Hi. I'm David Carnoy, Executive Editor for CNET.com and I'm here with the Jabra Revo headphones. You probably know Jabra from its Bluetooth headsets but yes, it is indeed making headphones. This also comes in a wireless model but that wireless model does cost around $250, while this one we're retailing for around $199 can be had for close to $150 and that's a good price. This is a very good sounding headphone. It's also very comfortable. It offers nicely balanced sound, the mono bass and clean, clear sound. I also like that the headphones fold up and it is nice the Jabra labels the inside of the ear cups with left and right, so, easy to tell which if left and right. This headphone does come with a detachable cord and the cord does have an inline remote and microphone for cellphone calls. Was nice like a lot of the premium headphones these days. This has 2 headphone jacks. Another person can plug in his or her headphones into the open jack and listen along with you to whatever you're listening to, whether that'd be music or movies. These do come in a white version as well and as they said, these are very comfortable earphones for on-ear headphones. I typically don't like on-ear headphones as much as over the ear headphones but these are comfortable, they do have memory foam in the ear cups. And they also seem well-built with metal armatures that hold the ear cups, as well as some ear cushioning in the headband itself. Really, the only thing I'm a little bit critical up is the included carrying bag. It just seems a little cheap and thin. It's really almost like paper-like. You do expect a little bit more from headphones that are in the $150 to $200 price range. Aside from that small draw back, I really did like these headphones, comfortable to wear, they sound good and they're good for mobile use. I'm David Carnoy and those are the Jabra Revo headphones. Thanks for watching.
