Don’t worry if you’re striving for a last-minute sonic gift or bond – you have good timing. Best Buy sells the Jabra Elite 85t true wireless earbuds for an all-time low of $140, $90 less than the usual price. You’d be happy in one color to get that price, and the deal is only available for today (December 23), but it’s hard to object when this even lowers Black Friday prices from the previous month.
Buy the Elite 85t at Best Buy – $140
The Elite 85t might be your choice if you award active noise cancellation first and foremost. The earbuds do a great job at blocking out outside noise, whether it’s a busy city or a noisy house, and you can customize the ANC levels to filter out just enough sounds. It’s also comfortable for extended periods and offers wireless charging that you don’t always get at this sale price.
There are limitations. The sound quality is good but not amazing, and you won’t find special tricks like spatial audio or tight integration with certain phones. At $140, you probably won’t mind – this is a viable alternative to AirPods, Galaxy Buds, and other portable listening devices.
