Jabra REVO Headphones with Dolby Digital

The Jabra REVO headphones combine a comfortable and durable design with the bonus of Dolby Digital Plus sound enhancement.

The Dolby Digital enhancement comes from the free Jabra Sound App for iOS and Android (requires product key). You can play your music library with the punch of Dolby processing for extra depth and dimension, plus adjust a graphic equalizer with presets for different types of music.

The headphones have a clean over-ear design, with comfortable memory foam cups and padded headband.

And they're solid, with aluminum and steel construction, shatterproof flexible headband, and tough reinforced fabric cables. They also fold for compact storage.

Jabra has tested the durability of the components, including drop (2 m), fold (3500 times), bend (10000 times), and cable (to 15 kg) -- apparently, spindle and mutilate are extra.

The cable includes in-line controls for music playback and phone calls. The headphones even have jacks in both earpieces, so you can chain the sound to a friend.

The result is a nice comfy yet rugged design, which delivers clear full-range sound with good separation between different elements. The headphones also are relatively compact, at around 11 ounces.

The Jabra Sound App is a very nice bonus, with the clear benefit of Dolby Digital enhancement and equalizer adjustments.

The Jabra REVO headphones are available for around $179 in gray and white. There's also a REVO Wireless model for $199.
