Top Customer Reviews
I suspect that those who give them 5 stars, they never compared them directly with other better bluetooth Headphones.
I compared them with:
Bose Soundlink On-Ear
Philips Fidelio M1BT
[EDIT: even if not anymore on a side by side context, I later tested MANY more BT Headphones. Something which somehow became between a Hobby, a passion, and an obsession. In this moment I have tested more or less 25. I can give you a list if you write me a comment. I will not completely rewrite the review but I will update my impressions and wrie down which other Headphones could be more interesting in this or similar price range]
I understand the emotional aspect of buying something you like, but, there is a difference between somebody who buy his first and only BT headphone and give 5 stars, or the same 5 stars given by somebody who tested all the best BT Headphones available.
So, putting tastes aside, and keeping it as much objective as possible, the Revo ARE good. But not soooo good to deserve 5 stars!
They anyway really deserve attention for the sound and features which they offer. And I keep suggesting them all the time over other similarly priced options (and even over some more expensive ones).
JABRA REVO WIRELESS
They are beautiful, I liked their mix of discrete Olive and lively subtle Orange lines. But I prefer the Bose for discretion and the Fidelio for elegance.
They sound warm, yes, but somehow a bit muffled. Probably because they lack a bit highs and upper mids.
It is something you may not notice if you do not come from a bright sounding Headphone, and very probably something you can get used to.
With some EQ and a bit of Reverb this improves, but they never sound lively and open enough to me.
They've got less punch than the Fidelio on the bass, more or less on pair with the Bose. With maybe (and I liked this) a tiny bit more rumble than the Bose. To give you an idea, I enjoyed more watching a film with the Revo than with the Bose, because the Revo had more this warm rumble effect which is good for speeches and also for explosions.
The touch controls are cool but also a pain in the A. EVERY SINGLE TIME that I wanted to reach the central button to pause the music I finished turning the volume up or down. Same story for changing track.
The bag is a joke. Period.
They are a bit more comfortable than the Fidelio on long-term, but do not fit tight enough to do fitness.
They have got NFC, yes, but no APTX. If you really need NFC (but, why?) you could have a look to the new Fidelio M2BT (I have them now and they are the or one of the best BT Headphone I have ever tried).
The improvement given by the Dolby App is only while using that App as a music player (which has got no folder browser. I do not know you, but I like to organize my music in folders), and it does not bring the Revo to the level of the Fidelio for soundstage and detail, or of the Bose for freshness and balance.
They have a wonderful orange cable covered in Fabric, with a Mic to use them as Headset also in cable mode. This is, I must admit, a nice point. I really liked the cable :D
the Bose sound much more fresh and balanced (not too warm, not too cold), are more portable, can connect with two devices at same time, have better carrying case.
The Fidelio have much better vibrant basses (matter of quality, not only of quantity), more detail and more Soundstage.
They are not foldable but the speakers can be turned of 90° making them thinner than Revo and Bose in a backpack.
I tested them only with APTX so I cannot say how they sound without.
The new M2BT has also Multipoint like the Bose, and NFC like the Revo.
Both Bose and Fidelio do not depend on any app to sound good, and have better controls than the Revo.
Quick overview of the comparison:
1) Fidelio and Bose (somehow the Bose perform a bit better on my Phone and the Fidelio on my PC, but they are overall comparable, with the Fidelio a bit more open, and the Bose a bit more present)
2) Bose and Revo
3) Sony (n°1 for quantity, n°5 for quality)
Detail and Room:
2) Bose and Sennheiser
3) Sony (would be at the first place for Room if the sound would not seem to come from behind)
3) sony (because of the better bag even if bigger dimensions)
4) Fidelio and Revo (Fidelio because thinner with the speakers turned 90°, Revo because foldable)
1) Bose (even if plastic, the form is elegant and the dimensions discrete)
5) no. Sorry. Sennheiser just NO. The designer should be ashamed...
1) Sennheiser (because you can have an extra one)
The others have all a good similar battery.
This may vary according to where you live. In EU:
1) Sennheiser (IF you buy them from their Outlet)
4) Fidelio M1BT
5) Bose and new Fidelio M2BT.
1) Sony (because Around the Ear)
2) Bose and Sennheiser
3) Revo (less tight than Bose and Sennheiser, but heavier)
4) Fidelio (but do not get fooled, they ARE comfortable enough for many hours)
2) Fidelio, Revo and Sony
1) Bose (clear winner for the double connectivity)
Then the others are more or less the same, each with little pros and cons.
In my opinion, there is no possible reason EVER why anybody should prefer the Revo over the Fidelio or the Bose unless you may find the Revo much cheaper like now (they reached the US$130 in Amazon). In that case, if you have a limited budget, go for the Revo, and try to use them with their Dolby App, or with some good EQ and some sort of Reverb (you know, "Studio, Club, Hall") to make them sound more "open". They will anyway not disappoint you. As said, they ARE good. Just, not "very" good.
Other possibilities in this price range are the Supertooth Freedom. I find them really good and they cost almost the same. I prefer their sound to that of Revo for sure, better bass and better highs, plus Aptx support.
The Harman Kardon BT became terribly cheap and sound very good. Some people do not like the look. I find it original.
The Skullcandy Hesh 2 Wireless sound also quite good. Different in sound signature but comparable in sound quality to the Revo. YOu can find some color versions for less then $100 in this moment (9th of Januar 2015). They also have a strong BT Range.
A short note about voting a review up or down: if you have a different opinion you do not need to vote mine down, you just can express yours in your review.
It is important to have different reviews from different people with different tastes and opinions.
Votes are for if a review is useful. And a review is useful when the reviewer explain in detail what he thinks of the product and why. No matter if you agree with his opinion or not.
I have spent LOT of time in comparing headphones and writing reviews, and although I had fun while doing it, I didn't do it for fun, I did it to help people, including you.
I would also be happy to give you more suggestions if you write me in the comments. In that case please specify which music do you listen most, and what do you want from a Headphone.
I hope this helped!
After using them for a couple of weeks I decided to share some of my thoughts.
Design: really modern and clean. The Jabra REVO are the type of headphones you can wear around the city or at the office without feeling like you are wearing some huge studio headphones with bright blue lights (why do manufactures always think that bluetooth devices need super bright always on and blinking blue lights?)
Sound quality: I’m not an audiophile, but I really liked the way these headphones sound. They are comparable to my corded V-Moda LP2.
Touch controls: very intuitive touch controls on both sides.
Construction: these headphones are definitely sturdy and built with quality materials.
Multipoint sync: the Jabra REVO can sync to two devices (i.e. your laptop and your iPhone) and they automatically switch to the playing device. This is great because often at the office I need to switch between Rdio on my laptop and Swell on my iPhone.
Comfort: it may be because I haven’t the smallest ears, but after a couple of hours of wearing these headphones I’m literally in pain and I need to take a break from them. I usually use over-the-ear headphones and these are on-the-ear so this problem could not be related to this specific model of headphones.
Case not included: at this price range I would expect a more sturdy case than just the pouch these headphones come with.
Poor sound isolation: again this problem is probably related to the over-the-ear design, but I work in an open space and sound isolation is a key factor for me.
While these headphones aren’t exactly cheap at $186, they are not as expensive as the ugly Bose AE2w ($250) or the Parrot Zik ($350). If you don’t have problems with on-the-ear headphones, I highly suggest them. Sadly, I’m going to return mine since I usually wear my headphones several hours per day I really can’t stand the on-the-ear design.
Also on the trip I found that the phones were hurting after a while. I found myself having to relieve the pain by readjustment. I have the Sol Republic which are about the same style. I think that the Sol wear better and more comfortable. But the Sol are not wireless. I got the Sony MBRT 10 which are over the ear. The Sony are wireless and over the ear. They are larger than the Jabra but are lighter.
The Sony keeps exterior noise better. But these are not noise canceling headphones. After going back and forth with the Jabra and the Sony. I went with the Sony. The sound is pretty good after burn in and the sound of the Sony is more spacious and lively. Don't get me wrong the Jabra had a good tight bass and highs but didn't sound as lively as the Sony. If the Jabra was over the ear design I would have kept them. I could been satisfied without software. The phone call needed some work the people on the other end could not hear me.
